Oh, no Amy, she's not THAT bad... LOL! It's not about the money either of us makes.
I don't think she meant that I was wasting myself as an architect, or that she was better because she made more money... She meant that since I am an architect, I should be doing Architecture and not (wasting mysielf) teaching.... even as a side job.
(((HUGS))) Mari! Sorry your sister is being such a pain, but good for you for sticking to your guns!
As someone who recently left the high-paying field of IT to become a teacher (I'm now making less than HALF my old IT salary working at a Catholic school), I can totally relate to your situation. Even my own DH was skeptical at first when I was in my Masters program but now that he sees how happy I am doing something I truly love, he is 100% supportive. I hope your sister will come around to that point someday soon. :-)
