Despite the fact that I have a Master’s Degree, I feel like I am trapped in a dead end job. Wasn’t the Master’s Degree supposed to help me not end up in a dead end job??? Wasn’t I supposed to love my work and fill fulfilled despite the low pay and no thanks??? Wasn’t I supposed to have wonderfully unglamorous life of educating the public about history??? Will you know what – even though I get paid more than most, it’s not enough and it’s too much all at the same time. I’m bored. My job is not creative and I’m not fulfilled. I want to fill like I’m working hard and doing a good job. I want to be tired at the end of the day because I’ve done good hard work — not because I’ve sat behind a desk all day staring at a computer. That is exhausting but not in a fulfilled way.
I want to be creative with fiber and needles. I want to own a yarn store and organize yarn. Now that is fulfilling. I want to make less money but be truly happy to go to work everyday. I think it is time for a change. I just hope I’m brave enough to take the risk.
