What to study

Really struggling with what to do with my life.

I have a lovely relationship with my guy and we are getting married at end of the year. I work as a receptionist, it is an easy job and we make enough money between us and some left over to pay off a bit extra on the mortgage.

I'm not sure if I want to change career. I'm only 27 and not sure I want to be a receptionist for the next 41 years - even though it is easy and I like my work colleagues and I can be home in 4 minutes

I can get a student loan for a degree which I will probably never pay back, so it makes sense for me to do a degree.

I just really don't know what to study, I love history but don't like the modules on open uni, and also what do you do with a degree in history? Teach? I don't want to do that? Work at national trust? I don't want to work Saturdays and Sunday's.

Business then? That's always good but I am on module 4 to complete my first year and find it hard and also boring.

I just really don't know what I want to do for next 41 years.

You might find you get more of a response on one of the other boards - maybe higher education or chat - as this one is mostly for people working at universities.
I would advise against going to university just to do 'a degree' without knowing which doors you want the degree to open. I'd suggest starting by trying to get some sort of a handle on what you would like to be doing in 10 or 20 years' time, and then work out how to get there.
What do you like or dislike about your current job? What are you good at? Do you like working with people? with figures? organising things? helping solve peoples' problems? Maybe have a think about this sort of thing and repost somewhere with more relevant traffic? Good luck!
