So college degree equals a good job and more money. I won't be completely foolish and say that I don't need it, but what if that's just not your biggest concern in life? I don't want a career, the standard definition of happiness just doesn't apply to me. Spending the rest of my life trapped in some job does not appeal to me anymore than going to class does. Why does not going to college equal misery? What guarantee is there that I will get through this misery and find a bright happy future in life?
