I am turning 24 years old in March and only have around 20 accepted credits from my prior college which apply to my A.A. So, I still have around 3-4 years to go to complete everything else, I suppose. Recently, I decided to go back to school and considering getting my bachelors in education, specifically with a degree in teaching. Perhaps, even a masters.. Had I done as planned straight out of high school, I would have already finished my bachelors by now or soon but due to personal reasons I wasted a lot of time. I am currently engaged and considering having kids no later than 26 years old. I want a career and still have time to raise a family. I know it's all possible, just trying to find the right path. I feel a little down because all my friends already have their degrees completed,or have kids.. I feel like I wasted 4 years moving around,decision making that now I am behind. I know teachers come in all ages, that's the beauty of education there truly isn't a limit to teach.. If I were to calculate time, I would be finished with my studies from here to probably until I am 28-29 years old. These weren't my plans, but hey.. things happen. And I surely do want to finish college/university. I am starting community college this year in the summer finishing my A.A then transfer to a university to get my bachelors. Does this sound like a good plan, should I continue with it? p.s. Hope no one takes this personal, I am not referring to the age itself more towards wanting to complete the degree and raise kids all at once. I should have added "late" rather than old, then again it's never too late..
