What would you go back and do?

I would love to go back to school and do SOMETHING. The problem is I have no idea what I want to do or what I would be good at. I don't know where to start and the thought of going back to school at almost 30 terrifies me. If you went back to school what would you do? If you did go back to school, how old were you and what did you go to school for?

  • You are never too old to learn, so get that idea out of your head!
    If nothing interests you, you have a few options. You can make an appointment with a guidance counselor. You can go to the library and read a book about career options. You can just start taking classes, and find something that interests you.

  • I have no desire or intention to go back now, however, the last time I thought about it, I wanted to upgrade my B.A. and get my Masters in Counselling.

  • I did go back, at 37!! I will be finishing my Associates in Human Services in May. Then I will be going on for a BSW and MSW so I can eventually counsel. I will be around 43 when I finish. My mom went back at 55 and got her Associates, Bachelors and Masters in Business Admin. If is never too late to go back to school.
