I’m sorry? Always there?

I’m not really gonna use my degree but I’m gonna complete it so it’s always there

This is the type of jargon I hear On a day to day Being a 20SMTHNG. It’s a conundrum I am yet to understand, these guys that complete a degree with no means of pursuing its career path. What is there to it and who thinks in this way?? The methodology of this human strikes me as “one of those stories” the story of the uninspired the story of the under motivated the story, what do you need to know is there why must it be there who put that in your mind.

Then you complain this is the part that infuriates me you will do as your parents ask and go to university get this degree, And complain out loud to everybody else but the people who forced you in this predicament… Maybe I’m just entitled or privileged to some but how can I got to a place and live with the decisions someone else made for me. YIKES! It’s a catch 22 of life, you hate what you do but if you don’t do it you’re bringing shame on your family? So your happiness is intentionally disregarded. 

Now if you’re a doctor, engineer, architect or something of the kind you are needed and required to do something of such a grandiose scale that is so much for the betterment of man which is a noble pursuit not subject to inquiry. It’s taxing and you are entitled to complain every now and then. Especially after you realise how much time you are giving to your craft that’s you. And I am not talking to these people. None the less there’s a faction of people that do Degrees for the “sake” of doing it with no future intentions of being part of the culture the education is intended. Education is important especially for those that need it. To the people that abuse the system it dilutes the resolution of those that come in it with the best of intentions to add to society and grow the culture of the world we live in.

A number of people that seldom love what they do taxes my mind, where I try and have spent time trying to understand the ideals of those that go into things with no intention of fulfilling the field requirements as a lifetime career. The conclusion I’ve come to is they are trying to achieve a societal norm or type of status investment when it is more a detriment to the people who truly want to live the life intended.

I want to finish this with a why question. Why are you doing what you’re doing? As a human, I believe in loving what you do regardless of the price tag attached to it and the sacrifice involved. And when you come to a true resolution you achieve a lot more of your life s purpose. Do you think you’re doing that by living in something you don’t appreciate as much as the person next to you?
