@Hoban Washburne, got my J-Man electrical, and now 2nd year instrumentation. Working as an electronics technician for a fracking company. My own house, and last year was $86K... not bad for only 24 years old 👌😁

@Hoban Washburne, laughs at everyone in business management with a double major in biochem with no student debt because I worked my ass off so far through college. I also have family support but I've mostly paid them back despite the 4700 per quarter cost.
@ericthegreat, only if you major in something that wont provide you with returns. If you want to live on the coast in a desirable area most people become college educated in certain fields. Trade schools will make you a living regardless of your intelligence but if you're smart higher education can and should teach you skills to succeed above that. It's like making millions vs a living neither is wrong but it depends on what you want.
You can also be a smart trades worker and invest or save your money to achieve millionaire status but let's be real a lawyer or investment banker are more likely to have that dough than an electrician
@Hoban Washburne, chuckles in philosophy and computer science
And then there's me:
Bachelors degree in history
No student debt (thank God)
Got a job that has nothing to do with history
Will quit my current job in two months to teach English in Japan
I don't know where I'm going with this
@Sexy Homunculus, Japan apparently
@wynaut, should be safer there since they don’t have video games to make you violent in Japan.
@troubled panda, Also Japan has universal healthcare. And is one of the top 3 strongest economies in the world.
@troubled panda, Their video game problem is less about them making kids shoot each other, more about making them give up on human companionship and ‘marry’ digital characters.
@Sexy Homunculus, I’m in japan currently! I’ll be here for 2 years and have been here for like 3 months. Hit. Me. Up.
@Coach Jones, nice. While it's not set in stone there's a good chance I'll be going to Tokyo in October to get TEFL certified, and unless I score a sweet gig there I'll probably go to Osaka or a similar sized city to start teaching English. I guess it would be nice to have an FP amigo while I'm over there
@Sexy Homunculus, I am in Sasebo but I need to go to Tokyo to hike mt Fuji
Honestly, picking up a trade these days is way more valuable then people realise. Go to tech school for either heating and air conditioning, electrical, or carpentry, and after 3 or 4 years of experience you'll be making great money.
@aminalFacks, apprenticeship are a great way to go about it too, you get paid to learn on the job and they have you go to school as well and end up with a degree towards the end 🤟🏼
@aminalFacks, I went to a trade school for carpentry but I’m also going to University for a geology degree. Knowing a trade is great for anybody even those who want to pursue something different in college it can be a fallback or save money on things having your own house.

Look. I hate that type of college person and fvck me I definitely am not going to college for philosophy but you can't call philosophy useless. Without philosophy we wouldn't have society as we know it today. Philosophy is important and there is a lot to do with philosophy degrees. If you are interested in philosophy, don't let people deter you from it.
@FutriSK, Most of my classmates in philosophy were arrogant, and I think that’s why philo gets a bad rep. If you approach philosophy with humility and a hunger for learning, you will become a powerhouse capable of anything.
@Uranusisbig, yeah but I mean arrogance in any class is good. But yeah arrogance in philosophy isn't a good thing at all. But God knows philosophy is important in society. Enjoy your infinite knowledge dude
Jim doesn't realize that the philosophers he idolizes actually had real jobs in addition to thinking, and were just very observant of themselves and the world.
I've been saying for years that the job force is swinging back to how it was when the boomers were in their 20s-30s. College is not needed to be successful or have self made wealth. During the 80s and 90s you absolutely needed a college education to be successful and independently wealthy. And in another 20 or so years, you will need one again. Just a big cycle.
@Kaji, only if you major in something that wont provide you with returns. If you want to live on the coast in a desirable area most people become college educated in certain fields. Trade schools will make you a living regardless of your intelligence but if you're smart higher education can and should teach you skills to succeed above that.

You can also be a smart trades worker and invest or save your money to achieve millionaire status but let's be real a lawyer or investment banker are more likely to have that dough than an electrician.
@Runnin with scissors, My point was more with the current fields and such it's easier to become independently wealthy and accrue self made wealth without a college degree. A college degree isn't as much of a requirement these days as it was 30-40 years ago. You can start up a business on your own, get it successful, and sell for millions without a college degree.
