Riding out the economy in school was my plan too. However, I have to go back to work. Fortunately (or sadly as the case may be) I can make decent money with my Associates in Nursing. Bachelor's in Sociology just doesn't do much for me, and it will be years before I'll have the graduate degrees to turn it into a teaching career.
