Go to school for something you LOVE.  If you enjoy your job and are passionate about it, it doesn't seem like work.

Good advice. What things are you interested in doing?

I switched careers after being a teacher for 13 years.  I didn't go back to school for it...just kind of fell into it...but it's the best thing I ever did.  I was suffering from pretty severe depression and teaching just made it worse.  Once I quit and started my new career I was IMMENSELY better.  In fact, I'd say I'm no longer suffering from depression at all. 

Being happy with your career is very important.  Good luck!
