I'm Paul and I'm 32 years old, living in Osaka and stuck in the English teaching rut. Spent too much time here and looking to start a graphic design career with a wife and a kid upon returning to the US. Studying now at Sessions.edu and doing well, but wonder if I have any chance in hell of making it in this cutthroat biz at my age. Hello to all and glad to be here.

If you're determined you can make it. There'll be a lot to learn but hopefully youve got some talent and an eye. (for good design that is). Good luck and welcome to the forum. Everyone here's friendly and will be happy to help you out will all your questions. Just be careful, us left-brainers tend to be a little... "off"....

Yes, at least one eye. But one eye is really all you need..... that has me wondering.... how many unneccessary body parts are we really lugging around in this proffession? What would you really have to possess to be a graphic designer? hmmmmmmm....
Good luck by the way. I to have made a recent change in carreer path. You can do it if your determined enough..... its all up to you. (read my signature line for further inspiration.)

I was teaching English too for ages. I'm now 32 and have just been offered a position as web developer for Six Apart, so it is definately possible.
I've had a freelance business for a while, and that was how I got my foot in the door
