I've just been having a lot of issues becoming a teacher right now at my local college I'm attending. It's making me feel indecisive and unsure about my career path. If it's really worth the trouble and if it's really what I want to do. I have a year and a half left to go and I feel like I'm hitting obstacles every which way I go. I'm more of a creative person and love kids and writing, so I thought I'd combine the two and teach. I've worked with kids for awhile and love English, so I believe I'd enjoy it.It's just that, I don't know, I've changed my career a bunch of times because I have so many interests. At first I wanted to do graphic design, but I can't really draw and a lot of classes for that major are drawing classes. I do have an eye for color and can use Photroshop quite well. And I wanted to be a writer for awhile too, not a journalist though, I don't like journalism. Just an author. But now I'm unsure. I'm not sure what's the perfect fit. I guess I'm thinking about it again because I'm having so many issues in my teaching path. I think I have too many interests! [b] Were you ever unsure about your career path? What kind of creative jobs do you think are suitable for me? What job do you do right now? [/b]

I am a Registered Nurse here in my country and I had always thought this is the path that I am going to. Until I realized that all opportunities possible for me closed and nothing left for me but only those that are available. I am teaching online right now I love the job but this is not a stable profession and I am not getting any younger. I have no choice I have to look for other options and I have to accept my fate. If I don't I won't survive. I always wanted to be a nurse but I guess even you are passionate about something when the world around you doesnt give you a chance to pursue that career then you have no choice but to accept it. You are talented and you've got an ace up your sleeve. Just make sure that whatever career path you choose, make sure this is what you really want and what you would like to be in forever.
