life changes

Okay, I need advice.

I'm currently working on my PhD and I think I hate it. The problem is I'm not 100% sure. I know I'm in an area where jobs (damn good jobs) are plentiful, especially with my background and with a masters. I know I hate the way the people I work with think they are better than everyone else. I know I hate the fact that I have NO free time. I know I hate the fact I'm not living my life the way I want or according to my rules.

I want a life. I want to be able to go to work and leave work at work (for the most part). I'm 27 yrs. old and I feel like I'm spinnin my wheels. I've made no progress in life.

I'm sure that most people go through this....

So my question is, have you ever made a major change in the direction of your life? Do you regret it or never look back?

Well, I was going to school and working full time right out of high school. I hated it.. was too much work and I wanted to live a little.. So I dropped school.. because I HAD to work. Well, fast-farward 10 years. I'm making more money, but everything cost more, and I'm doing the same job that I could have done straight out of high school. Oh and I'm working two jobs so I still have no free time. And since I never finished school I barely make enough out of the two jobs. So, Finish your PhD, then if you don't like your field there's tons of things you can do from there.. Esp. if you're close to finishing. Better to suck it up now then later.

You have a good point. The only problem is that I'm not almost done...but on the other hand I can't get back in if I quit. Thanks for the suggestion

I joined the military when I was 19 and never regretted it. I'm a different person for it.

I think you should finish your PhD and move on thereafter.

No matter what you'll have your PhD. You can join the peace corps later if you want.

Again, another good point. Your right, once I have it, I have it and I can figure what I want to do from there. Thanks doll
