OK, so this is kinda sorta related my Radiohead rant; but do you ever feel like there are a lot of career options you didn’t consider? There seem to be plenty of options that don't require a 4 year degree out there and I am starting to think that perhaps I wasted a lot of time and money.
For example, I know a ticket scalper that made $3k in one night on Radiohead tickets (and that shit is not going to Haiti). I know a guy with some sort of ailment that got him a “medicinal marijuana” perscription and then sells said weed for much more. And I am 100% sure that I would make more money than I do now if I sold something like crack instead of PR services. Just sayin’
I also become painfully aware of how really stupid people can make a ton of money when I watch MTV Cribs. If I see another rapper blowing trillions of dollars on shit like fish tanks with mini sharks or a “professional BMX biker” with a mansion, I might hurt someone.
Why my parents didn’t encourage me to be a stripper or rodeo clown blows my mind. I definitely wouldn’t be asking for loans if I had those kind of skills.
“Non- traditional” careers are the new black.
