IT field is full of money but it seems most of us lose our love or aren't grand autismo enough to stare at code/terminals 24/7.

Anon, I understand.

If you have the money and the energy, go back to school.

I'm 23. I've been in college since I was 17, with one year of break. I do not have a degree. I barely have progress towards a degree. While my issues are more a mental health thing than a mistaken goals thing...I think the point is the same.

Life is too short to spend it not doing what you want to do most. If you hate the idea of spending the rest of your life in IT, don't. If you love the idea of studying some kind of bio, do it.

Yeah, you've sunk money and time into something else. But that's sunk cost, man.

By the time I'm done with my degree I'll have basically paid for at least two. I'll have spent my "best years" either in total misery or too busy to have much fun.
But the promise to myself that one day I'll be doing what I really want to do is the only way I can get up in the morning, face my shitty day job, do heaps of homework, and try my damnedest not to backslide.
It's the only light at the end of this shitty tunnel of a job I hate and a life I didn't expect.

Sorry to make it about me. I'm just saying...doing what you most want to be doing is always the right choice.

I bet you'd be crying about why you didn't become a computer engineer, if you had gone into bio.
