I love when people ask me why I go to school. Then they tell me they would go to but it’s not for them, too expensive, not enough time, and how stressed they would be.
You think any of us like school? You think we like to miss sleep sometimes, miss proper meals, hygiene, and cram in last minute things? You think we don’t worry about the ever increasing prices of tuition, loans, and other shit we need?
Okay sometimes I do enjoy college life, it’s made me grow and I’ve met some awesome people, but we’re not putting ourselves through it for shits and giggles.
I mean have you seen the job market? Or do you live under a rock?
Of course I’m stressed out, because I’m stuck working a shitty underpaid job at the moment.
Also, that’s cool school’s not for you, but don’t bitch to me about how hard your life is when you don’t try to change it.
Of course it’s hard as hell right now, and even harder when you’re trying to get an education. But when I see others and myself I’m like why the fuck would I wanna be miserable, working a dead ass job like the rest of my life? A manager in retail or a food store isn’t my cup of tea sweetheart. Oh and I’m tired of working weekends… I want a career, something I can appreciate contributing to. Sometimes you have to sacrifice a lot now, to have more later on.
