I have always loooved going to school. I despised getting sick because I would have to stay home from school. This wasn't my attitude all the time, but really, I loved anything to do with books, paper, and pens.
I truly do believe in the value of an education. BUT in today's world having an education is no longer about becoming more informed about the world or yourself but rather a means to a job. And in today's economy, students are struggling once they graduate to find a career they had hoped their degree would get them. Being a student is a time to figure out stuff and I am enjoying that but the journey isn't easy or fun. I'm frustrated.
Being a student is great, because you learn all sorts of helpful things for your future. Although, I am excited to find a career where I can leave my work at the office and spend time with my family. I'm tired of dragging it home in a heavy bag.
