I am 23. I have a job with Target that allows me little more income than is necessary to exist (rent, etc). I have some college, but no degrees/certificates/etc. I am a hard worker, and I am appreciated as an employee... but I work for a massive corporation; and while I realize I am somewhat of an asset, in the grand scheme of things I am essentially replacable. I can't advance much past where I am currently without a degree, and can't attend college on what little I make. I am getting married soon and while I know my fiance will love me regardless of whether I am flat broke, or a millionaire... I cannot kid myself, my ego is tied to how successful I feel, and how well I feel I am contributing to our marriage financially. My fiance is not pressuring me, she is proud of my accomplisments and of me. I feel however I am not living up to my potential, and have a hard time being content. I realize money =/= contentment, but I want to go back to school and use it as a stepping stone towards knowledge,money, and contentment etc. I am just so intimidated by the idea of going back to a liberal arts college. I get overwhelmed, and feel I am taking 2-3 classes of no interest, and 1 maybe 2 with the smallest slivers of interesting course material. Are there jobs/fields that don't require a formal education yet provide a person with the time/money to pursue their interests/leisure as well? I have tried to think of them, and never seem to come up with anything that doesn't completely suck. I just don't feel like I learn in that environment. I don't do well in college. I apply myself and really put my nose down and still make poor grades. College can't be the only option and I really don't see myself enjoying something offered by a trade school. I have toyed around withit, welding,electrician apprentice etc... and it just isnt for me. I have taken multiple personality tests used to give me an idea of what careers might bring fulfilment. I just am not there. I realize few people enjoy their job, but if I have to tolerate a job/career I atleast want to make money. HOW? I hope I haven't asked the same question too many times, or a question that gets over asked here... I just am looking for some perspective. thanks.
