As the title states, what do you all do for a living?? I am 27 and HATE where I am right now in life, I have a teaching degree (gym, big mistake i know. I went because I had no clue what I wanted to do back in 2006 and at the time it was interesting and it was before the economy crashed so figured a degree in anything would account for something) and work as an aide right now. I hate it, I hate ignorant kids, and I hate the lousy pay that comes with it. I have a girlfriend, she's great, but refuse to propose or even entertain the idea of settling down with kids until my mid 30's WHEN I AM MAKING GOOD MONEY. I stroll through some of these forums, and see newer, brand new cars, nice houses, etc. and I hate to say it but get extremely jealous. Now, back to me, I want to make a career change but I don't want to dump more money into college as the rates are ridiculous. If I have to, then so be it but I would like input on your careers, what it took to get there, and if you would recommend it in terms of money, openings, and good work/life balance. Also, I would really like to hear any career changers and anyone who had a decent job, and left to do something more fulfilling. A bit of a rant, but I could use some help from you guys if you could provide any input on your careers, career changers, recommendations, etc. Thank you.
