    Money is good for raising a family.

    So, Engineering or Pharmacy. "Daddy we're hungry!" "Yeah sweetheart, I couldn't get a professor gig, but I'm sure this blog will be able to afford you a sandwich soon."

    My buddy is a laid back Pharmacist that works 3 days a week, like you said. It's probably not his dream job, but there's job flexibility and he has TONS of free time to do whatever he wants. Plus he makes lots of money.

    Architecture. You'll be 45 before you actually make any money. And that's if you're good. I was in a very good architecture school and people far better than me are 10 years in and learning how to make websites at their firm.

    Teaching is fine, but unless you get a University gig, or teach abroad, you're not going to make much. Probably enough to support a family.


    And being young is no excuse to lay back and just "try things." Now's the time to work your ass off on something that is realistic and will make you MONEY. Some philosophers believe that money is important for, you know, staying alive. Actually you can't do shit without it. Get your head out of the clouds if that's where it is and spend your youth NOT idealizing but buckling down.

    Then, when you're 24 and have job stability and money, if you're not happy, you'll have the means to do something else. Or even find a more fulfilling position in your field.

    Youth is not a time to fuck around, as many would have you believe.

    I fucked around in my youth and I'm an amazing human being haha (I couldn't even finish all of what I was going to say due to cracking up.)

    I do understand your message here. And so based on this notion...what specific advice would you give a young person that doesn't know which career path to follow? That has no calling?

    Fuck around. A little bit. And this doesn't mean staying home to play video games getting high.

    Go travel for a year. Teach english in Asia or something.

    You'll never learn more about yourself.

    OR, as MOST kids don't have a calling, you could just pick a degree such as Industrial Engineering (the easier of the engineerings), stick it out, graduate at 21/22, and THEN fuck around for a year. At least you'll have a MARKETABLE SKILL. As opposed to say, an English or Art History degree.

    Yes.

    Fucking around is for people on top of their shit.

    You can be teaching English in another country, while learning their language and culture, making new friends, seeing new things, eating new food, walking new paths, gaining new perspectives. After a few years, if you return to the States, your CV would be so much more desirable, and more doors will open for you, hence more options.

    A college degree, a TESOL degree, and a one way plane ticket are all you need.
    I have thought of that, and I think I mentioned it before. I do not know what TESOL is, but I would like one!

    I still do it, nobody buys, though. I make a little, but I make more on disability, honestly.

    One of the things I can never get a feel for from you is whether or not you are taking advantage of all the resources you have available through the school, disability, etc. Have you met with a career counselor yet?

    step 1. dig a hole
    step 2. get in hole
    step 3. complain how you got in the hole and can't get out
    step 4. someone suggests you use the ladder right over there or they throw you a ladder
    step 5. make an excuse as to why you can't use the ladder
    repeat steps 3-5* til you eventually starve to death.

    *ladder will be a different object each loop
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so
