Is my career path stupid?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

My last english class was yesterday. And I was so sad. Reading & writing are passions of mine. But I'm going into nursing, for the stability, money, and I know I can do that & could also find joy in it...depending on what field I'm in. Part of me thinks that when my kids are grown and we could afford for me to do something I enjoy, I'll go into writing. I can't help but wonder if it's a stupid idea to do nursing when I love writing so much. My teacher yesterday said, 'For some of you, this may be your last english class'.  I wanted to cry.

Do you think I'm making a horrible decision? Or the right one for me & my family?

Im a huge believer in following your passions, so while my opinion may not be financially the best choice, my allegience lies in what makes your heart happy.
