Well.. just finnished a exam, so I have to rant a bit.

For the past 3.5 years Ive been gooing to University doing social economics, something I found out 3 years into that I want to change to Business. Now, I might not be able to apply to it because my High School Scores are to low, so I`ll have to take a year to upgrade those..

Then I would have to do atleast 3 more years at school. 4 years total.. and at age 28 I would be 32 when Im finished. More so If I want to do a masters. And who would hire my at 35.. no prior work experience in business.

I shouldnt be so misserable.. (im not THAT misserable) I have well paying job, saving $50.000 each year ( living in Western Europe ), but, the jobs not what I want to do my entire life, and it feels like Im never finnishing school. Hard enough to know Im 6-7 years older then most of my class mates now.. it would be 8-9 if I get accepted into the new course. Its not like Im 20 again and would be interested in dating any of them..


Im at a bit of a loss.. probably ending up staying with my job...never ending university..

Im having a existencial crises!


edit: My topic was supposed to mean I earn alot, but its not a work I love, so money isnt everything. You got to do someting you love...

You don't have to have a business degree to work in business. Might be different where you live but not here in the USA. I would graduate and still try to get a job in the field that I like while going to school.

Depending on the job you do now there may be a possibility to get some business experience out of it. I use to work for a testing center as a proctor. I was promoted to manager within 2 years (while going to school early morning/ late at night) due to high turnover. The manager was given a basic 'budget' for ordering supplies and keeping the computer equipment in working condition. I've done plenty of business since then in the form of sales and ordering for the clients of IT firms that I have done work for.

I went back to school and got my MBA at 40!!!! It doesn't matter how old you are - in my group of fellow MBRers I was one of 11 people that were on the same track and took all of our classes together. There were 3 older than me and 7 younger than me.

My job is great for me and I truly love it. I would suggest trying to find something that you like to do first, even if it means less money and then going back to school. This way you can be sure of what you want to do and not spend time in school without being sure that you are on the right track.

Indeed, money is not everything. I had to quite my high flying top exec job to do what I love, which pays pennies compared to what I used to earn. I am enjoying life and am at peace and these are things money cannot buy.

Education is a means and not an end in itself and we are all learning. You are never too old to continue with formal education.

I second the motion! Money do not makes the world go round. You must choose the right thing which you think will make you happy, and stick to it :)

True, money can't give you the happiness. But for some people it is just so hard to find a job they really love and they get paid from it. Many people today try to love their job to earn money. Lucky if you can get the job you really love and paid well for it ;)

Money may not buy happiness....but poverty is not a path to happiness either...
Poverty has more things to make you unhappy though.....si I'd pick money over poverty..unfortunately I'm impoverished..shrug.

You already know the answer.
Stop worrying about what everyone else will think. You will only feel worse tens years down the line when you realise you've wasted even more time being a slave to an illusion in your mind. And no one ever got rich by following the crowd.

Good luck.

I live by the philosophy that 'life is what you make it'. This to me means that everything in life that you do is a choice. So if you are really unhappy with your job then change it :) the majority of the time you will work so why not take the risk and see if you can find something that will make you happy - a choice that you can only make :)

Totally agree with @philipsteele; we can buy everything with money whatever we need but one thing in the world we can't buy is happiness,

As for the respondents' aspirations for the world, they focused, once again, on how to help the youth in the world live healthy, meaningful and impact lives. Their answers were consistently youth-focused: They were concerned about being good parents, they were concerned about their children and they were concerned about the children of the world in general.

I almost never even understand your posts let alone how they're related to the topic. Especially 3 years after the matter... Is there a connection here that I'm missing? Or are you just copy-pasting things out of some random financial quote generator?

I am just guessing. But, I wouldn't be surprised if prioritytaxgroup and johnt78 are the same person. I would almost bet that if a admin/mod researched their IP addresses, they'd be the same.....Capt. Obvious and his counterpart Capt. Oblivious.
