Should I?

I am in a big debate with myself and Chad on if I should go back to school to get my Masters in School Counseling.  There are lots of pros and cons to this decision.  So what do you think?  I will take all the advice I can get...

Pros:                                                         Cons:
More pay once graduate                          Costs money to go back to school
Still get time off during summer               It will be a little less time off
Still work with kids                                  It will be a stressful 18 months
Have time to work on projects                  Hard course work (i.e. writing papers)
Online Program                                        Online program

I am really struggling, but I do want a change. I'm being extra picky about this change because I really want summers off to spend with my kids and just an overall break.  I know that I can't have my cake and eat it too, but maybe I can?.?.It will be a really tough 18 months, but it is only 18 months.  That is not that long and the last semester is an internship.  What to do, what to do.  The deadline for the program I want to do is May 11th and I would start in June.  Yikes!  I have to submit everything like today.  Should I...What do you think?


  1. I think if you know you can get a job in that field then you should do it! 18 months will fly by when your super stressed and busy :) Plus your not happy in what you are doing now, so something has to change!

  2. Do it do it do it, go turn your stuff in yesterday! You aren't even 30, what's 18 months? Kiddos and hubby want you happy when you get home, even if it's a little later than usual. Love you, go be happy sweets!!
