No, you’re absolutely right, making 6 figures isn’t as important as being happy… Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t trade happiness for money no matter how much was offered.
And it’s not about the money, eventhough that’s exactly what it sounds like from my post and it makes me seem like a shallow prick, and that’s cool, it happens.
I want a degree in something I enjoy so I can get a job doing something I love - that will add happiness to my life. If I happen to be making 6 figures doing it, more power to me.
Yeah… I don’t completely agree with going to college at 18 and graduating when you’re 22. I don’t think most people know what they really want to do. For example, my Wife went to College, got a degree in Accounting and got her CPA, then she decided she hated accounting and never did it.
Although, even though i’m making $35+K a year I still feel like a loser without a degree… And chances are i’m going to until I have one and am making 6 figures, if ever.
Why does your life have to be about making six figures? What about experience? What about having a good time with what you got?
