When I was in Orlando I met SO MANY people who had gone to college and graduated with a degree only to end up working at a low paying job in a theme park with thousands of dollars worth of student debt. They were perfectly content with where they were in life, and really appreciated the fact that they got to have “the college experience”. But what a price for an experience! I understand that education is important in making us all well rounded and thoughtful individuals who can better contribute to our communities but I’m still quite intimidated by the whole possibility of owing more money than I’ve ever had in my life. And thinking about deciding on one thing that I would like to do for the rest of my life and working so hard in school to achieve it and then ending up doing something completely different and what’s the point of anything WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE SOMEDAY ANYWAY.
It’s a bit overwhelming for me.
All my negativity aside, this video by John is definitely encouraging.
