Most of us of think (or are told) that the path to financial stability is to chose a “practical” or “profitable” academic major that will ensure career longevity and a “stable” 9-5 job. I’m doing an internship at government agency and most of my co-workers say that despite taking such a path, their wallets are still tight and life isn’t as affordable as they would like it to be. Most of my friends who are in the workforce report the same thing about their fellow employees. So, if I’m going to be just as broke after college as I am now, I might as well take on whatever crazy, career goal I want, right? Then, I might be broke, but I’ll happy as the sun with my daily, 40hrs/week job.
