I want to start by thanking the folks who gave input on my other post. My boss did leave and I was moved to a different role, a trading role actually. It is a cash trading role for those in the industry, my limit is 14 days ahead. More of an asset management role IMO, but that's here nor there.
My predicament -
I truly thought that trading was going to be over the moon, I thought it was going to be so fun and great, it just isn't what I thought it would be. I sit in front of three monitors, I'm on ICE and can get all the 'cool' trading stuff I want, just isn't what I thought it would be. Maybe I was naive and expected a job to be fun, but I have never really felt less fulfilled in my life. It's even reaching over into my personal life to where I just go home, sit on the couch and watch tv, I'm not productive at all.
I have considered a career change, however, I won't be able to get into a business school worth going to due to a low GPA (3.0). I have also considered law school, I took the LSAT in college and got a 166 after a month of studying so I may retake it to up my chances, I'm also a minority so that helps. The law school idea has really peaked my interest as of late, and I feel like studying for the LSAT night help me shake my funk, but I'm just not sure.
I'm not really looking for pity or answers, but maybe some direction from others who have felt the same way. What have you done?
