I still haven't decided what I want to be when I grow up. This is either my biggest hurdle, or my biggest excuse for not finishing school. I thought I'd throw it out there into Blog-land and get some opinions. I have too many interests in too many areas for me to think that there is the ONE right career path for me. What are your thoughts?
My original path when I started college was Early Childhood Deaf Education. I also pondered interpreting. Three children and fluent Spanish later (not in that order), I would need to almost start over if I go this direction. I remember a lot of ASL, but I am no longer fluent. I have been blessed to pick up languages rather easily (as opposed to my math skills) so I don't think it would be too hard, as much as time consuming. The required classes just for interpreting would take about 6 semesters full time.
Another option is the medical field. I have often pondered nursing school, but not as a viable option at this point in my life. I have been looking at the radiology tech program at SLCC, but don't have many details. Any one out there familiar with this?
Completely unrelated to the above options, I would love to be a professional event planner. I LOVE planning large activities (much to the chagrin of my sweet hubby) and if there was money to be made there, I would be interested. I love the thrill of finding the unknown or under-utilized activity and sharing it with others. Too bad people don't use travel agents anymore!
I was a dental assistant in another life. (My pre-mommy life) Then there's my time at Blue Cross Blue Shield, so there's always medical coding or insurance. After time at a bank and processing mortgages for my dad, I am pretty sure the financial world is not for me, so cross that off the list.
Did I leave anything out? What are your thoughts. Right now I feel a bit like one of those "choose your own adventure" stories. If you have an idea of where my life should go, turn to that page and let me know how it looks. I feel blessed to have the talents and resources to even consider all these things! I know I should pray about it first and foremost, but I am afraid that I would then have to act upon my answer and I'm not sure I'm ready for that leap. I am a little old to be pondering these things but I'm not getting any younger, right.
I would like to hear your thoughts on the subject, so please tell me what you think. Thanks for listening to me ramble!
