I have recently enrolled in M.Phil./PhD program in international Relations after leaving my high school teaching job. I was fascinated and interested in the field but after joining and attending classes for nearly a month, I have realised that I am not interested in research. I find the program monotonous, boring and at times frustrating. Though stipend is not an issue but it’s too less, approx $80/month.
I think reading about something passionately and researching about it are two different things. I miss my school teaching tremendously. I am in dilemma now. Should I continue with it and at least earn MPhil degree or leave it and again enter school teaching which I like.
