I'm wondering if anyone has been a similar position. To put the story briefly, last year I graduated from med school after 5 grueling years. Truth be told, halfway through I'd decided that I was clearly going down the wrong professional path (I come from a family of physicians so it was the default route to take). But I thought I'd ride it out and think nothing of it. Fast forward today, I'm currently in a (non medical) job that pays very well with great prospects up ahead. Problem is I find it tedious and uninspirational, to put it bluntly I've found it difficult to get myself out of bed every morning or to be optimistic about the future despite my future lucrative prospects. I've recently been toying with the idea of going back to Uni to start as undergrad in a completely different field. I've always wanted to go into academia and perhaps try my luck as a teacher, which is something I'd always imagine enjoying or being inspired by. Funding myself isnt a problem luckily but now that I'm in my mid 20s I feared I may be toying around too much at the expense of settling down, and that I may be taking my stable career prospects for granted especially in this troublesome climate. Anyone been in a similar predicament?
