I think we all have had jobs that we stayed in longer than anticipated or planned. But the worst thing i think can happen is to continue working a job that I don't love simply because it is convenient, easy, or satisfactory. I was going to go to college this summer to pursue a career in something i love but decided to wait because the money i get paid at my current job is good. Ive contemplated on not going to college and staying with my company because im good at what i do. But I don't love what i do and if I decide to stay at my job and wind up hating it over time then what?
No, I will strive for my dreams, past all the boundaries set up for me by this world. Im enrolling in college for next spring, and i have faith that it will work itself out for the better if i do the next best thing. I can't wait to wake up everyday and be excited for work for the rest of my life.

Is there any way that your present skills could lead into a job with the same company, or with another company, that would be more enjoyable? It is a lot easier to negotiate a different job, while you are currently employed and highly valued.

I started my career programming computers back in 1962. I loved working in and around computers, but the jobs also came with the dreaded documentation and status report requirements, which I hated! The point being, most jobs can come with a certain level of pleasure and pain.
What field are you in, and what field would you want to pursue?
With regard to a career path, "they" say that "if you love what you do, you'll never have to work a day in your life" Farrah Gray, young male multimillionaire and author of "Reallionaire" suggests asking oneself this question pertaining to such a path, "What would I do for years and years to come and not have to get paid?"
There are some jobs that require a certain amount of college or training. You can do it though with hard work, motivation, and dedication to learning and studying.
