Now, I think I might consider it again.  The field is competitive, though. 



I agree with this I know a few people who have Phd's and are working in jobs where you would only need a masters and working on a Phd takes too long and you will be too overqualified for many positions.


welcome to my life

This is really one of my fears.

^^^ funny thing is after 2 degrees I don't know what I want to do anymore... I want to get my Phd because I love to learn and I love this subject area and wouldn't mind teaching this if I were a College professor. However, in my current job it's not what I have a passion for. I always wanted to go to cosmetology school, but have not convinced myself that it was the "right" move for me and that I could live off it.

If I can find a more flexible job I think I might go PT... I don't want to get stuck doing something I don't LOVE because I was afraid to try something different.
