Yes, I am lying in bed as I write.

How is your lying mouth today? Feeling sore???

Who cares if he or she goes back to school. That's a decision millions make everyday. What is your stake in this?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

You did not mention the most important consideration - what do you personally think that getting the degee means for your life, or whatever it is that you value in life.

For example, you mention that you love travelling, events concerts etc. Does your degree somehow help with that?

Usually when people have to wonder this thing, it is that they are studying something other than what they really enjoy doing.

That said, if your degree would mean better employment opportunities and better income, then you could use that additional income to enjoy more things that you like. Travelling more, or going to more concerts.

However:

Since you write that you are now financially secure, we can assume that you are employed. Would getting the degree, and then a better position, mean that you wouldn't have the TIME to spend your additional income in travelling or concerts?

So again we are at the core question - what do you think the degree will add to your life, in both good and bad.

Do what you love, that's it. Do you WANT to go back to school?

No one could pay me to go back to "school".

I love the school of life.

But I can't wait to leave Earth to more civilized places.

On the contrary to some here, I think that you ask this question because you don't want to go back to school. And you just want someone to tell you that you're right. Because if you really did want to do it, you would just do it. There would be no hesitation.

I don't think formal schooling can give me anything I can't do for myself. Personally I consider school a waste of time academically. School is good for making friends, socializing and hanging out, and having fun. But if you want to learn something, you have to teach yourself, not depend on someone to feed you books and knowledge. To grow in knowledge is actually a lonely job. You do it alone. Good teachers only point the way, at most, and most teachers are not even good teachers.
