I'm working on my MA in medical anthropology. Darn thesis just won't write itself.: I have a BS in Biology. I will be going back to college when I'm done.:

I knew there was a reason we needed to meet! (besides the obvious chocolate, that is...)

yes, quite sad. but I guess that's where passion kicks in. It's a labor of love.

Masters in International Affairs. It took me a few years to actually work in my "field," thoroughly enjoyed it, but now work in something not related at all to either my BA or MA. So, while I think my path was a little roundabout, overall, I'm happy where I ended up. (Despite the student loans!)

I have a Master's in Social Work, working towards my LCSW and LMFT, and make 36,000 a year. I, however, do not find it all at weird that I "spent so much time studying" to "make less than someone who worked their way up." IMO, there is SO much benefit. Quite the opposite of "no" benefit and being "quite sad."

I am doing what I love to do and what I am good at. I help families and without the degree, I would not be able to do this type of work. I would not be able to help preserve intact families and reunify those families that are not intact. Ask one of my families in which the children have been in foster care and have been reunified. They see the benefit and do not find it sad. Nor do I. And, yup, all for 36,000 a year and 60,000 in student loans. Totally worth it.
