1 mom liked this

I always wanted to go into library science and be a librarian. I have an intense love of words.

Teach English Lit. I'm going back to school so I may consider it, but it doesn't seem like the kind of money I want to earn.

Quoting Bubbie0809:

My neighbors, husband and wife had library science degrees. One is still in the field.


I wasted time in college not knowing what to do.  And some how was talked out of a sociology degree by mom and professor of sociology. A couple years after I was out I became interested in radiolgy. My mom was done helping me, so I was afraid to do it and have debt. I should have done it cuz now radioligy school is 3x more money! I dont have an interest in going back to school.

If I could have a stronger stomach, I would do nursing, which isn't far from my degree in public health. Mostly because there are a wide variety of schedule options, but I know that field is super competitive right now. When I was in school, however, there was a need for nurses.

I have considered going back to become a registered dietician. I think that would be a nice clinical compliment to my public health degree and the work I am doing. I couldn't imagine going back right now though.

Honestly, I would choose the same path, everything else pays less, doesn't sound enjoyable, and/or requires many more student loans!

I would absolutely choose the same profession.

Probably the same. Maybe teach.

I wanted to be a nurse, but I am terrible at science.

I'd be a clown. Who wouldn't want to make kids laugh all day? Sadly, I don't have the skills to do the little magic tricks.
