    I should've either completed my education degree or studied psychology. Actually definitely psychology!

    I did like psychology but the field I wanted to be in is so specialised and ridiculously hard to get in to. If you can see a career path in psychology then go for it! I enjoyed my degree (it's a BSc so LOTS of statistics which wasn't so great lol) but I think I would've been able to get a career in law of I had chosen that instead. I've always like kids so teaching was kind of the obvious choice for me in terms of a realistic career.

    I'm thinking now either Early Childhood Education, or maybe Sports Management or something (I'd love to get a job working for a professional sports team). I'll be 42 this year, so I've probably left my run a bit late. With work and looking after DD, I wouldn't be able to handle more than part-time study; so I'd be pushing 50 by the time I finished any degree - and I don't think many employers would be willing to take a punt on someone that age brand new to the industry with no experience whatsoever.

    Default *Spin off* What should you have studied?

    I studied marketing at uni but I should have studied interior decoration at TAFE. 15 years later I've just started studying just that! And I love it! I guess it's only 1 week in though! Haha

    I wish I had studied something in tourism. 16 years later and I am finally doing my diploma online but worried I live in such a small backwards town it wont result in anything but at least I know I tried

    I did a communications degree but had no idea what I wanted to do. I started studying psychology after DD was born and I've been slowly chipping away at it. I've done 4 subjects and have 6 to go to finish the grad dip, but I'm putting it on hold for now as we've just got too much going on for the next 6 months.

    If I had it all to do again I think I should have done something in health right from the start (before kids!).

    I'm happy with what I studied though i would hope so as I only graduated 18 months ago. I did a bachelor of nursing and now I'm doing a grad dip in child and family health nursing.
