sometimes i get really overwhelmed at the things i’ve decided to try and do with myself, and that i probably won’t be able to achieve the thing i want most, and i have to take a step back and accept that life will happen whether i’m happy about it or not so i might as well enjoy the good bits, and let the bad bits float away with the clouds when they go
I think I have made a decision. I am going to major in whatever the heck I want to even if it’s random and won’t make me a doctor. Because in the end all I want is to be happy and having a well-paid job means nothing to me if I’m not doing something I want to - and who knows, maybe I will want to be a nurse or a teacher one day. But I don’t care if I don’t know what to do right now because eventually I will figure it out.
And even if 20 years from now I look back and think to myself I should of studied something different, I know that I could never regret the fact that I am doing something for myself for once.
Who is society to look down upon people who aren’t studying to be doctors, lawyers, et cetera? All the adults of the world have lost their ambition. I am trying not to lose mine. This is my decision to make. So honestly? Leave me alone. Stop telling me that I won’t make enough money, that I’ll never find a job because the economy is so horrible, and that I have to think logically. Stop passing down your cynicism and let kids do what they do best: dream.
We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.
I feel like it’s really lame to ask people to write in your ask box but… I mean I am just throwing it on out there… I mean in case you happen to be bored and find yourself wondering about the exciting life I lead…
i am very disappointed in the fact that we are all here fighting every morning and clawing through our days for a job—or a better job, or a degree—when all we really want is to be with the people we love and play with our dogs in the park and eat pizza and talk about books we like and dance around like weirdos and look at the ocean and trees.
