Okay y’all, so I’m at a crossroads and I’d like input. I’m 29, and I’m feeling like I’m starting my career super late. I put my professional dreams on the back burner for the sake of my relationship with my ex, and then he broke up with me. I feel so behind. I do really love the company in with right now but I’ve been thinking a lot about getting into programming and stuff. In another world, it was what I wanted to do and wasn’t brave enough. A local college in my area has a really intensive programming course and they assist with job placement. There is also the potential that it could be free if I get a grant.
My biggest hesitation is that it’s full time and I wouldn’t have income then. I don’t have savings that I could rely on to pay my car note and student loans. But this is a great opportunity, I think I’d really enjoy it, and if I landed a great job, the pay would help me do some things I’ve been hoping to like pay my CC debt, student loans, and car off faster.
WHAT SAY YOU, GT?! Am I being quixotic? Is this change mid-stream worth it? I'm scared, but I want to take a shot. More importantly, how do I support at least my bills during this time?????
