Time travel

Bleh, I'm back to where I was a year ago. I have no idea what I'm going to do after my AmeriCorps term is up. I'm frustrated to the point where I want to cry. Possible options:

  1. Get a teaching certificate in secondary mathematics

  2. Get a masters of ed while I'm getting said certificate

  3. Go get an MBA

  4. Get a job as an engineer

Part of me is tempted to pick 1 and 3 and try to do them simultaneously. I think my biggest fear is ended up w/o options. I'm afraid to commit to anything, thinking I'll hate it, like I do with engineering. Actually, I don't think I hate engineering, I just don't think I could do it for the rest of my life. Maybe that's the problem - that I think whatever job I start, it'll be a career and I'll be stuck in it. I think I need to realize that that doesn't have to be the case. Ohio State has business and education graduate programs in the top 20 in the nation, and is close. Looks like Harvard, Stanford, UPenn, Northwestern, Columbia, Berkeley, NYU, UMich, UCLA, and UTAustin all do as well.

Putting all my eggs in one basket with TFA was a mistake though. Application deadlines have basically passed, though it seems some schools have later deadlines if space is available - I just wouldn't qualify for any financial aid.

Maybe I should just commit to one path, and hope it works out. If I do that, it'd definitely be education.

*sighs* I'm scared.
