Were you more motivated by the salary or was it something you were passionate about?
Would you take a job that made really good money but made you miserable?
My sister is in school to pursue being a crna and I can remember listening to her in HS talking about how she needed a job that would pay her enough money to be "secure." She hates all her classes and is constantly stressed and I know that being a CRNA is a stressful job. It's her life and I support her but I hate to see her go into a field that seems to make her really unhappy just so she can make 150 a year when she could probably live very comfortable on half that and find a job that makes her happy.
To each their own Im not judging just wondering

I must till you she probably would not start out at that pay. Going to College or any school can be stressful but bare with her. She will be fine. It sounds like a challenge to her right now but when she finishes school she will be proud of her self.

I'm now in a career that I am passionate about - music. I'm a producer and own a building that offers rehearsal space and recording studios; however to get to this point I worked at menial jobs that I despised but I had to do it to afford what I have now. I have a bachelors degree in both English literature and American history which I am also passionate about, but while decided what to pursue in college I looked at other options and simply couldn't attempt them because I had no real interest in it. I could have pursued something less interesting that offered more money in the long run but I know how my mind works, if I am not interested in what I am studying I fail miserably. If I wanted to do it I could become a teacher, given my degree in English lit but I have no interest in teaching and therefore have never pursued it. (continued)
