Yesterdays post got me thinking about what it is that I want to do when I grow up. This much I have decided: when the doctor is a doctor, I am going back to school.
Oh, I already did it once.... I just didn't do it very well. Or rather not very effectively. After 5 years I didn't leave with a degree. I had my reasons (excuses), and DrH wasn't one of the them - although I wish he would have been. I would like to finish this time - before my children graduate.
I just about started two years ago, and then reality (tuition) hit and I decided this wasn't the right time. And it wasn't. We ended up having a baby. But this time, it is going to happen.
And I think I have decided upon the perfect program: I want to study money.
Yes. Money. Specifically, the world of finance.
I figure I already have a natural tendency towards saving and managing our finances now so why not expand on that to match our (presumed) financial needs in the future. Whether that means that I manage our investment/retirement accounts, or have someone else do it - I would really like to know what it all means and how it works. I don't want to blindly turn over our savings and cross my fingers. I want to KNOW. There are many things I want to KNOW.
The list of services and providers we may need in the future really opened up some possibilities for other training and education that could prove invaluable.
Law - think of all the legal implications surrounding the practice of medicine - somebody in the house should know what it means.
Business - being married to a doctor may mean being a part of the family business in one way or another.
Real Estate - finding the perfect house(s) or amassing a rental empire - this could be part of a wise investment strategy.
Architecture - why buy when you can build. Design your own dream home, every beam and door.
Interior Design - any home is going to need some personalization, and this would be fun to learn/practice.
I am sure there are many more areas of study and expertise that could come in handy to know now and in the future. Maybe I will be a forever student (like my DrH has been) and just start tackling them one by one.
What do you look forward to learning or doing when you grow up?
