The million dollar question you keep asking yourself, the closer you reach graduation.
But first let me break the myth that in order to become successful or have a bright future in life is to go to college.Right?
I keep hearing if you don’t go to college, you will not get a good secure job with benefits. Does that sound familiar to you?
I know that is what I always hear my teachers, commercials and movies always claim to be true. Family members are the worst preachers of this mantra.
One family member that first comes to mind is my Uncle Randy (on my Dads side), whenever he would visit the house, he would always ask my brother,my sister (not me anymore), if we started college yet.
He kept emphasizing the fact that college is the only ticket to being successful or living the good life.
In head, I am thinking but Uncle Randy you went to college so how come you don’t have anything to show for. My Uncle Randy got his bachelors degree but he works at Temecula Limo as a freaking limo driver.
Don’t get me wrong, its better than working at McDonald’s and at least he gets to drive some pretty sweet looking rides, but he doesn’t own any them and his job owns him.
I would also come across popular charts and graphs showing that more education equals more money like this one article written by Forbes.
