The one thing you have to keep in mind. The daily grind is what is required to get by in this world. Whether it be a 9-5 job, or a 3-11, or a 7p-7a.
We all have to make a living. Mkae it something you really enjoy.
What you call unecessary, is it? Really? You have been given what by your parents? Got a television? A stereo? An IPod? Do you have a car? Auto
insurance? Some nice shoes and clothes?
Just who do you expect to pay your way through this life? You have to take responsibility at some point, and the whole idea behind the better
education is to earn the higher pay so hopefully you can break the chains a bit earlier and retire young, wealthy, and successful.
This is life, welcome to it. If you choose to participate ane become a contributing member, well good on you. However, I see a lot of the new
generation speaking as you are, needing to "find their way", and it reminds me of the 60's and 70's hippies. Most of them did go on to shave and
clean up and get a job. For those that it wasn't too late for.
Regardless of how you feel about government, politics, conspiracies, this is the world we live in, and it is not really a socialist world. No one
wants to work and pay your way for you, even if the government may grant that. A real man would stand up and say they wish to pull their own weight,
and forge their own way in this world.
The only bit of advice that I can offer you is a simple one. Work to live, do not live to work. If you keep that in mind, then after you perform the
duties required and expected of you, you can find the time and money to do things that you enjoy and find pleasing. Use your job and income to benefit
yourself, and if it isn't enough, then you only have yourself to blame for having been another of the "left behind".
I know my view isn't going to be the most popular, but then, we cannot choose to only get the answers we want in life. Sometimes, the answer is the
one you don't like, but the truth nonetheless.
Above all, and I ask this in the most sincere manner possible, what make you think that you above anyone else, should not have to do the same thing we
all do? Just who is it that you would consign to work to pay your way through this life, and how will it benefit them? Why are you so special that you
are outside the box?
We all have want to be different, for the world to be different from what it is, but it is what it is. We all go through stages like this, and while I
too will not say "grow up", just don't find yourself left behind.
Nothing says you have to sleep through life.
I don't think anything is going to happen in 2012, other than the things we already are aware of. Economic issues, wars, and energy problems. All the
more reason for you to forge your way in this life now, rather than later.
