Between a rock and a hard place

I have a big decision to make.

I have to leave my job to go back to school. What's the problem? Well, it is probably one of the best jobs I have ever had. Regardless of how much I complain about the late hours and the constant back on forth, I like the excitement and I get a rush when I see an Ad I have done in print, heard it on the radio or see it on television. I am definitely advancing in the field and can see myself being here long term doing something I like to do: Writing, Conceptualizing and Strategizing. Mind you, there are days when I would pull my hair out and I too get the Monday blues but I think its worth it. I love the challenge it offers everyday. And I am learning so much.

On the other hand, I need to go back to school. I promised myself I'd finish my degree and learn at least 3 languages by the time I was 25 and I only have 4 years left. My education is so important to me but I am so easily distracted that it's hard to stay focused. I've tried working and going to school part time but it is too much for me at this point in my life. Unfortunately, I don't yet know how to be that driven and I often just get demotivated and quit. I want to do so many things that I can't yet decide on one so I think I need to do them all just to satisfy my thirst for knowledge and the only way to do that is to leave. I need that time to figure myself out.

Why 25? And what was it that you wanted to accomplish after 25? Education (and various forms thereof) is something that can and should take place at every stage in one's life...
