Earlier today I was talking to a friend of mine at work about school, and our spouses. We both are recently married and only have one semester of school left. Our spouses are different. His wife is going to get her masters in English and Education and my husband hasnt even started school yet. My friend is a little different than me though, after he graduates with an associates, he is moving on to do optometry, so he has a bit of school left too. As we were talking, I couldn't shake the feeling that my schooling has been a waste of time. I have been at a two-year college for more than 3 years, and even though this is my last semester and I am glad to be done, now what? My degree is not what I want to do with my life. I recognize that I have gained some valuable skills at school and I know I have made some friends. But I have no idea what I am going to do when Nik goes to college. Do I try for something I am really interested in, or do I just get anything that pays enough to get him through school? Do I wait till he is employed to do a serious job hunt, or do I make him wait on school till I am gainfully employed? None of these options sound good. Hopefully we will beable to come up with something before it is a necessity.
I know, I have just been rambling and complaining, but I can't help it. My best friends have busy lives too, who else am I going to vent too?
