I’m considering going back to school, either for next year, or taking a job for the next year with the intention of going back to school for the year after. The Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, Canadian Studies and English I have just isn’t enough. I don’t have the patience to teach, and I’d probably need some upgrading of my GPA if I were to try to do a Masters, so I’m trying to assess what I could probably see myself doing as a career and looking at the various websites for colleges around the country. I’ve been thinking of doing something a little more practical/hands-on but at the same time I don’t want to leap into something I’m good at but don’t necessarily enjoy. I’m looking for any advice some of you may have with regard to this.
I need to think short-term and long-term right now. My problem is that I end up getting comfortable in a bad situation, like one of my previous jobs: I knew I didn’t care for it, I knew it was making me miserable, and I knew my life was disappearing while I worked there, but I was so used to the money (which was merely OK but well-enough above minimum wage after the “attendance bonus”). I thought I was doing the responsible thing, but is it really all that responsible to resign yourself to a situation that makes you miserable?
I accidentally logged into Facebook for a second today. I don’t think the week off Facebook or Twitter really helped matters any with regard to my bad habits, and I think I ended up just isolating myself even further.
