Background - I have a Bachelor's degree in something very practical which I use for my career. This is probably what I will do until I retire. I've been to law school but did not pursue the bar exam as law wasn't a good fit for me.
I am a military veteran and as such have the GI bill just wasting away in limbo somewhere. I have no spouse or kids to transfer this to.
I went to college just to get a career. I am good at what I do but I didn't love the education portion as frankly its a boring degree. I do love school and love to learn though.
So I've been thinking harder and harder lately about getting a degree in something I really enjoy. I don't want to change careers but I don't want to waste the GI bill either. I could go for an MBA and that'd be very practical with my degree blah blah but I wouldn't particularly enjoy it. So is it stupid to get a degree just for me, just for fun essentially when its no cost out of pocket to me? Or must I do the sensible grown up thing and get the MBA?
