Mid-job crisis...

Recently, i was talking with mrs. sarccastik on her career. She's a perm sub for a local high school, and she really enjoys it.....now let me explain about my wife, graduate of georgia tech, was a high school cheerleader and know damn near as much sports as me....(at least she thinks she does)....has a degree in industrial engineering....she could get a gig anywhere....but she really enjoy teaching. My co-worker teaches basketball at his local rec league, kids about 9 to 10 years old....and he also told me he really enjoy teaching. My co-worker is a guy who has been doing IT for at least 10 yrs. I got to thinking on what that hell do i enjoy doing, i like to cook (watching g.garvin) and enjoy sports. I'm in the computer field...it's okay, I worked hard at the point i'm in now. But thinking back on it, I got advice like a lot of people from their parents....go to school and get a good paying job....and that's life.....I guess the reason, that I'm so frustrated is that...is this all? I graduate from school and get a job....not a career that i enjoy. i would like to teach my daughter that yes education is important, but if you can find something that you enjoy and that makes money...go for it.
I might go back to school to get an MBA in Sports Management or maybe culinary skills for gp, or get into real estate. Something that I could really enjoy doing, because it seems to me everybody around me is picking up something they really enjoy doing.....
