I still would have studied the sane thing but I wish I was never talked into doing that Phd. I've been accepted into teaching so I'm thinking of pursuing that.

I think had I had the maturity to study vet science as a 17 year old (how old I was when I would have started uni), I'd be perfectly happy doing that still...but not going to university until I was in my late 20's meant I got to study a passion that I didn't know I had when I was 17 (needed life experience to find it). The ship has sailed for vet science for me, but I really love what I do now, so no regrets.

I have a bachelor of science in nursing. I was never passionate about it and have spent 13 years in a job i hate. Very stressful industry and very physically exhausting. Im so sick of sick people. I actually quit last week and am officially unemployed. I obviously will have to go back to work soon but im dreading it. Unsure what i should have studied. I like animals, babies and helping people. Just loathe nursing.

This thread makes me a little nervous as I still don't what path to take myself.
I wanted to do midwifery since having my son. But after some people told me that I may not be able to handle some of it, I was afraid of going into it and wasting money.
Edit - I also looked into Maternal Child Health Nurse, and I need to be a registered nurse or midwife to apply for the entry for the MCHN course.
I also wanted for a time to become a Councillor or something. I like listening to people and help where I can. Not sure if that's just studying Psychiatry or something.
I honestly don't know what I want to do. Been asking myself this since I dropped out of high school.

Like you I loved helping people, and I loved the interesting cases and outcomes, but the actual day to day job was horrible.
Let me know if you come up with a solution!!

I've studied hospitality and business management. Currently an admin assistant.
What did I want to do? Acting/Musical Theatre.
It's so stupid I know, but ever since leaving high school I have really missed being on stage. Thats all I wanted to do. I have been in any sort of play since then (although I have been on stage singing a couple of times).
I'm going to be 26 next week. Time to admit that it is over, and I will be stuck in the corporate world forever.

it's a tough one isn't @White Mage
there's aspects of jobs that appeal to me but I know the reality is probably a lot different and every job has aspects nobody knows about or things that go with the territory that you don't hear about until you're on the job.
counseling would prob require a psych degree but there's quite a bit of further study required before you're able to do counseling. like the plain straight psych degree I don't think is enough. psychiatry is a medical degree plus years of additional study in the field of psychiatry. as they're doctors, psychiatrists may also prescribe medication whereas a psychologist may not.
psychiatry is so interesting up me too but I know I'm not smart enough to do a medical degree. my chemistry and physics were hopeless and you need those to be able to do it. instead I just enjoy reading about medical things avidly at home.

Wish I'd studied medical sciences. There are so many fields that I'd love to work in which require a Bachelor of Medical Sciences as a basis.
I learnt a lot in my degrees that interested me, but since having kids I've found it very difficult to find work that suits me and my family. Not something that I ever really considered while I was studying. I also chose my degrees based somewhat on social expectations/the kind of person I wanted to present myself to be..you know...when I was 16 years old. So not ideal.

I almost had a commerce degree (quit 6 months before graduating) and I have an education degree and a masters in educational leadership. I'd also have enjiyed studying criminology, perfumery and law. Life's too short to immerse myself into everything I'm interested in.
