First and foremost:
This post is based on limited experience of a student that has not technically entered the 'real world', one that is still starry-eyed about the idea of shaping my own future doing something that is a happy compromise. Moving back the topic.
Something I've noticed is that I'm still alot more idealistic than my peers when it comes to wanting to find a decent career, despite all the current recession business. For example while speaking to my cousin about transferring courses.
Now she could be correct but it's just rather depressing thinking that many people are willing to submit themselves to something that doesn't satisfy them, replacing their drive and idealism with apathy and acceptance under the guise of realism (I'm going to get so much slack for this. Bring it on!! ) but it'd be even more depressing if they are actually being realistic about society and this is the actual truth."To be honest I donít want to do a 9-5 job but I have to. People have to.. you have to take sacrifices in lifeÖ You donít want to be a bum your whole life??.. work is no fun.. we all know that! But what job doesnít last 9-5?"
What say more experienced people here?
