Education?

I'm sitting here, somewhat jealous of all the people in school or on summer break.  It's got me interested in working towards a degree.  I've always wanted to do Culinary arts, but with everything else going on right now, I probably need something I can do online.  The other problem is that with a culinary degree, am I getting myself into something that is going to take a tremendous amount of time away from my kids?  My end goal is to own my own restaurant, but I also want to be there for all the little moments with my kids along the way and don't want to miss anything.  I'm thinking about getting a business degree and then maybe getting the culinary part later.  I'm so torn and confused.  Why does being an adult have to be so difficult? I guess I should maybe wait until the spring or so before I start adding more to my plate and for now focus on my We Live to Know, Love, and Serve God online course and then my RCIA classes starting in August.

My best friend is in culinary school right now and it takes up a huge amount of time. Kitchen labs can be up to 5 hours at a time, but it's incredibly rewarding and fun from what I've seen. It's a tough call.

Culinary arts is hard with a family, because of the hours you'd have to work (the dinner rush!).

I feel you: I'd love to have a Master's degree, but I know I wouldn't actually USE it, so I don't want to pay for it. I just read a ridiculous amount instead.

You two are so right. I think I may wait until the kids are older to go back to school for culinary arts and just cook for fun until then. Maybe I'll get my business degree so I'll be a little closer to what I want in the long run.
