    I think it depends on your personal circumstances and the career, tbh. For eg, my DP would love to do architecture, but he's not willing to do 5 years study and then work sh*t kicking work with long hours and a huge pay cut for at least another 10. So i think it's all well and good to say 'you're never too old' or 'follow you dreams' but sometimes it's unrealistic or there would be too many sacrifices.

    Feeling much more inspired! Thanks everyone. I'm going to make some calls on Monday to make sure my plan will work to get me where I want to go. If so I'll be busting to get started!

    Keep the stories coming!

    Yeah that's why I'm trying to be a little more creative on how I get there. Basically I'm going to do an advanced diploma via online study first as I can do that from home/during my work commute (2hrs a day on the train) while DD is still so little. Then I can do an extra year or so to get the degree, then ultimately do post-grad to get the final qualification. The alternative is a minimum of 4 years full time on-campus at uni which isn't an option at the moment.

    I found another option today - can do a degree all online through CSU! So no need to do the adv dip first and i should be able to do post-grad later on with this degree. Just gotta do some bridging courses (my maths needs some work, it's been a while!!).

    Yay!
