But where will you be in ten years if you don't do it?Oh, I know this one! There's never been any doubt of me continueing with school, I've alway known I would. But in what direction?This was a deciding point for me when I was going back to school. When I got out of high school, I said - if I go to college, I'll have to go part time and I'll be 30 before I'm through. LOL. I joined the military, thinking I could go to school while I was in. I took a few classes, but most of the time it was too difficult with work schedules and being moved every couple of years.And besides, some wonderful man is going to come along and support me for the rest of my life.ROFL!! This isn't something I've every CONSIOUSLY thought, but I think I've been working on that premise subconsiously, until recently. Now I'm in a panic. I can't keep living the way we are, barely making ends meet. There's no man on the horizon for me, and at this stage of my life, I don't think I even want one.If what you want is an engineering degree, I think you should go for it, even if it does take ten years. If business is what you want then go for that. I always thought that my BS in Management was appropriate - since so much of management seems to be BS.At this point, I don't even KNOW what I want. There isn't anything stopping me from returning to school after my daughter is grown and out of the house to pursue something I WANT. But I need something that will support us NOW and let me buy a house and settle down and all those things. Does that make sense?Ishtar
