First day of the semester...
Posted 02 September 2008 - 11:36 PM
I was thinking about going to grad school after I finish my degree for teaching, but now I am not so sure... I am tired of being in school and kind of want to find my "path" or "way" in the work world... I just feel so unsure about everything! How am I supposed to know what I want to do? Does anyone have any advice or nice words? I had such a stressful day...... not to mention I stepped on a bee and it stung the crap out of my foot...
I am a singer and that is my passion, but I know I need to pay the bills...
I have been back and forth and torn between everything... any advice or kind words will be welcome....
Thanks so much!

But anyway, don't worry about where you are going to be 5 years from now. Just do what you have to do today.

That being said...focus on now. Focus on what you want and need to accomplish now. You've almost crossed the finish line and you should be very proud of your accomplishments thus far. It's okay to take a break after the BA. Work a daytime job and sing on the side. You can do both! I think what you're studying sounds great...and if you want to pursue the MA go for it! You can take it as slow as you want doing it course by course part-time...and slowly build your up. Give yourself some credit. Almost there! Good job!

I think you should go with your gut instinct no matter what. If you are feeling a little burnt out on school then maybe you should take a couple years and work until you really want grad school. I am in my 2nd year grad right now after being our of school for almost ten years. I am thinking of continuing onto a phd but this would not have happened straight out of undergrad. I needed time to have life experience and my first career which led me to where I am now.
You and your future hubby need to decided what will work best in your marriage but maybe you could pursue your career and live in the work force for a bit before heading back for the grad degree?
I don't regret anything. I feel totally fine about having gone back to grad school at 30. I am really enjoying it even though it took a minute to get back into my "school head".
