In my mid-twenties, I became dissatisfied (i.e. disillusioned) with the military and law enforcement life and wanted to learn more about the world and to work in computing. I realized I needed to go to college, so I studied computer science and liberal studies (e.g. philosophy) and left college with degrees in both. I now work as a technical lead.
