I am currently making a career transition. I will be joining a teacher's residency, which allows me to work as a teacher full time but requires me to attend a grad school of their choice. I'm dreading the grad school aspect because I honestly hate school. I've hated it ever since I was a kid, even when I was getting good grades. It's the reason why college was such a drag for me. Now, I'm about to attend a school that'll probably give me a torturous experience. Sometimes, I wonder to myself if I'm wasting my time; if there are realistic ways for me to establish financial security and take care of a family without a college education. Other times, I'm thinking about the fact that it seems as though most people don't make liveable wages without a decent education. Well, let the torture begin.
