    I studied Law and Arts

    I wish I studied Midwifery, secondary teaching or maybe even did business with my law degree. i enjoyed my Arts degree but I feel like Iwould have the ability to apply for more jobs if I had a business qualification in HR or marketing or something. At 17 I just assumed I would practice law. Which I don't, I have a public service job. I'd love to go back and study but it would mean a pay cut which i dont think I could do

    Congrats @sunnyflower on quitting. Good luck on whatever exciting new thing you do!

    Whoops, didn't say, I studied Arts & Teaching (majoring in gender studies and linguistics). This qualified me to work as a teacher (upper primary & ESL/humanities at high school level).

    I dropped out of high school and was pregnant at age 18. So after many years as a stay at home mum and feeling as though I wasn't good enough for university.... I am entering my second year of my midwifery degree and absolutely love it. No regrets, I am so grateful and happy

    I studied physiotherapy and while I enjoyed the course, I never really loved practising as a physio. Finally found my mojo teaching physio not working as one. Think I was put on this earth to be a teacher :-)

    Law. I always wanted to do criminal law but I went with psychology. I then did a postgrad in teaching. I love teaching but I still wish I had gone for law.

    Speech pathology. I wanted to, was talked out of it and did international relations, followed by teaching.

    For the past few years I've been seriously considering doing speech path again.
