Nothing will fuck up your twenties more than thinking you’re supposed to have your shit together.
In all the fandoms I’m in or follow, I see all these people craving adorable, sappy, schmoopy, cute cuddly fluffy stuff.
When I get into a fandom I’m like HOW MUCH CAN THIS CHARACTER I LOVE TAKE UNTIL HE BREAKS I must knoooooooooooooow.
I am exactly the same. I really don’t like fluff very much at all. I only do it on rare occasion. ;;
Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
I’m sorry but this post is exactly what someone would say when they have no idea what they’re talking about. Saying what you said might be easy, but the reality is not.
So many people are poor in this country. They simply cannot afford to have this type of mentality. They need to be able to pay for a ton of things. Food, electricity/gas bills, rent/mortgage, etc. It DOES take a ton of money to be able to live comfortably.
I know your post is mostly geared towards high schoolers who are constantly told what they should do with their lives. But so many high schoolers live below the poverty line. Not everyone has parents who are both able to support them throughout college and who tell them to “do something else” with their life, you know? When people think that, “oh, I’m just going to chase my passions and not care about money as much,” it’s harmful and risky. Because if you don’t think about your financial situation, it is VERY easy to get in a ton of debt or lose so much money that you can’t follow your dreams anymore. Money doesn’t buy happiness, but you need it to stay alive.
It’s great to follow your dreams and work hard, but it’s equally important to take money/your financial situation into account as well. And by that I don’t mean putting money second on the list, but make money as equally as important as working hard to follow your dreams. It’s rash/idiotic to just “do what you love” and not care (as much) about the stuff that’ll support you throughout life.
lmfao thank you for this response. i could add a lot more, but you pretty much nailed it right on the head.
Reblogging for the response. The image is moronic and one of the reasons so many college grads are unable to find jobs because everyone taught them to do what they want but forgot to mention not everything is a feasible career, and that some careers are over-saturated and difficult to make money in.
I also hate this mentality that everyone only has one passion and you have to make a job out of THAT or you’re living an unfulfilled dreary life.
Money doesn’t buy happiness but neither does having no job because you think all viable careers are below your ‘passion’.
