I want to go back to school! My youngest of four children is starting kindergarten. I work evenings as a dispatcher so I'm going to be home all by myself in the fall during the day. I never got to go back to school for whatever reason, but am more than able now. I don't think its to late and am ready to dive in. I need some advise though. I am a fly by the seat of my pants type girl! I have several different things I want to do and am having quite a time deciding. Any help I would love! Okay I have always wanted to be a hairstylist.....but have you ever met someone who things they just rock at it and all the while no one wants them within a mile of there hair? I don't want to be that person LOL! So I don't know if I would be good at it. I also would love to go into photography because I love to take pictures. You can really see emotions in pictures! I have so many albums and carry a camera with me at all times! Never know when you might need it! Then there's the job related field I could go into. Criminal Justice I would love to specialize in homeland security because It interests me, but I'm a 911 dispatcher at night I guess its going to! So ladies give me some advise here!

Jun. 6, 2008 at 9:43 AM I didn't vote here. Thanks to the one that did. I have made my choice. I got my paperwork from the art school that I am wanting to attend and I am going to go for photography. I want to be a crime scene photographer. That would be something I would love to do. Now I think Hairstylist would be last on my list!

Jun. 22, 2008 at 9:09 AM well Sweet Tater..I voted...a whole late late on the issue but still there's my two cents!  I have been so out of touch with things here lately, I'm sorry I wasn't there for you to talk to.  I think any one of the three you would be good at but you have to follow your own heart!  I can see you being a stylist and I think you would be good at it, but my only concern would be the bad memories associated with that profession for you.  In the end would it become a competition of sorts?  You don't need that because you have nothing to prove...just my humble opinion.  I can totally see you being a photographer, you have an addiction to the shutter bug, same as I do.  I can even see in my mind you having a small studio on the farm...you have so much picturesque area to work with there.  I also know your love and respect for the justice system so crime scene photography would be right up your alley.  In the end you follow your heart and we'll just support you any way we can with your decision.  Love ya!
