Being at the age of 21 right now, working off Ebay and living a decent life. The best part of my life is that I have a free schedule..Obviously sometimes I need to go out and restock but for the most part..very decent. Well lately I have been seeing friends who graduated with me and noticing there facebook updates of "Moving to Washington in the morning, starting work on monday!" Or "House shopping, car shopping...What a busy life!" These things never...got to me. But lately I have been affected emotionally by it. I don't wanna be a cog in the machine, or just another expendable. I know in american life, you are taught to get educated, get a job and live that happy family life with the white picket fence and the new mercedes from the biiiig raise. Well that just isn't what I want. I don't wanna kiss someone's boot as they scuff mine. I want equality as a human being.
Why am i getting so upset of the success of my classmates? Why do I care about their lives so much?...Could it be that I live at home? I know plenty of people who are happy at home at the age of 21. Is it because I need to make the dough? Well maybe, but right now I am doing well financially. Should I just join them and get $50,000+ in debt and sell my soul to a company for 40+ yearss? Would that make me happy?
I am just curious about the others out there. Did you do the american dream and goto school and now are happy with their life?
Or did you pull away and do something you loved and stayed happy? Thanks for listening to my appeal. Feel free to respond. I would love to get incite on your decision, your life and your dreams.
