If the butt itches when working with a machete. Lay the machete down before scratching the buttox.
I notice many teenagers today do not value nor appreciate whats right in front of them. Sometimes they even complain about it too.
Although, I even catch myself, and sometimes people older than me doing this from time to time.
If you think you’d be okay working in a trade, do it. If you’re life’s goals don’t require an expensive education, don’t bother with it. Student debt is the worst debt and unless you’re taking a well paying degree, you’re boned.
If you are driven, you know EXACTLY what you want to do, find out more about what it is you want to do. Go meet with someone who works the profession. Talk to them. See if the good things outweigh the bad.
If I had been told this as a teenager, I wouldn’t have paid attention because I was wearing rose-colored glasses. I now have a degree I have no interest in using and I work in what would be more accurately be described as a trade and I love it
I have a friend who has been in college since 2004 and yet hasn’t worker at all… anywhere. It’s almost 2012, he’s 26… lives with his mom and hasn’t earned a degree yet. This is a very bad fucking idea. Employers would rather see you have worked 8 years at wal Mart in college than not working at all. They want any work experience over no experience. Don’t be a fool — get a job.
Donald Miller said, “It wasn’t necessary to win for the story to be great, it was only necessary to sacrifice everything.” The most important lesson I’ve learned in life is that we can set our goals and achieve them [or not], plan everything out and have every detail scripted. But life happens. And the lofty idea of gold at the end of the rainbow doesn’t end up mattering as much as what it took to get there, the people you met, and how much of yourself you invested into those relationships. I’m not who I was 5 years ago, not because I planned it that way, but because of how I reacted when I was vulnerable and clinging onto the things that mattered. That’s how true character is shaped, and that’s how the story becomes truly great.
