LuvingLife Posted March 5, 2012 Share Posted March 5, 2012 I can't help it, I'm hopelessly in love with History, I enjoy it, I live it, and I practically breathe it on occasion it has become a major part of my life. I enjoy historical events, researching and writing decriptive reports/essays on it, and I just can't seem to get enough of it. I know it is not an ideal job area, but I don't feel as though I would enjoy anything else but this. Now I know many people who cannot believe I would enter a field such as this, but why take a job that pays lots of money that I may loathe compared to a passion of mine which I very much enjoy? Well, I have a plan, nothing is set in stone, but it is something I have been working daily at. Here is the plan that is subject to change if necessary: 1. I take a few years off, learn a trade (i.e. medical billing and coding/Medical Assisting) and earn enough money to help put myself through college. 2. I major in Histpry, but minor in buisness or maybe even a double major in buisness and History, I was told by many that this would be a wise plan as then I would have something to fall back onto. So this is what I am trying to acheive, I am considering taking about 2 years off to become a certified MA or MB/C as then I would have a job that would allow me to work while still being able to attend school. I believe this would be a wiser choice as it could take awhile for me to land a secure job in the field. Would you follow a passion? Or would you listen to those around you and go for a job that would leave you feeling disastisfied with what you do?:bigear: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
