anyone in here with a graduate degree

She was gonna have to contract to work 3 years. The professor isn't gonna get laid she's about 70 years old probably. The pharmacist guy is happy now, it doesn't suck to be him. Studies have value, but most people have no idea what kind of things they can even credibly say, and when most people say, "studies show...", then then say the kinds of things that studies can't really show. Having a womb was probably her only asset. That's what I'm saying. Her ambitions were the least lofty of any of those people and she actually ended up the most fucked. Also 60K isn't gonna get you very far when you're taxed down to 40k by the time you earn it and spend it and rent utilities and insurance in any place with a decent standard of living is going to run you at least another 12-14k a year outta that. What about fuel and food? Man worker bees don't get the big prizes. Please know that.

How old are you if I might ask? I feel like you should be doing completely different shit. I have a feeling that when I was your age I wan't even in college yet. I spent a good bit of time travelling around and doing a lot of things some of which I might not ever recall on record. It's good for you.

Was 4 years of university not enough for you to catch on? You're actually going to double down and spend more money? When you're young it's difficult to understand the value of your time. Don't waste your life finding out that there's not much original shit to be said in the world. You should be thinking of what makes you feel good, not the things you're afraid might happen if you don't find some conventional measure of success. You need to throw away all your shit and hike for a year and grow a beard or something before you go making decisions that can fuck up your life. Maybe go do part of the Appalachian Trail or something. Ride a motorcycle across the country or at least hitchike or something dude. Take hallucinogens in strange places where you don't know anyone and try to play it off. Find out who you really are when you are completely out of your element.

I have a friend who wanted to study eating disorders and work with people who had em, so she got a B.S. in psych, then went to work at a rehab at an entry level position, kissed some ass and wore a lot of makeup and squeezed her tits together and they offered to pay for her to get a masters in social psychology. It didn't hurt that she was a cheerleader in college and had a handful of eating disorders herself. She was a fine one dude. Next thing you know....the pressure gets to her and she starts misusing her clonapin and when she passed out at her desk there in the rehab they sorta rescinded the offer and I think now she lives in a trailer with some dude who has one of those mustaches and she drags babies around and isn't skinny anymore. Fucked up shit dude.

I don't have a womb, don't worry.


But start now, and you could have one of those moustaches by Easter.

It's not the money. It's the fact that you're not a slave. You don't have to sell weed either. There's a ton of things you can do besides dream of suiting up and being a mid-level professional working 50 hours for 50 grand. I mean seriously why in the fuck do people think that's a good deal? Dude I'd rather sit and do nothing all year for half that than go and stand and pull levers and push buttons for some fucks all day who only wanna let me go and smoke 2 times. That's fucking insane.

If I did all (or even just some) that, I'd end up either in jail or with 50% wage garnishments for the rest of my life. It's too late. I had found myself in philosophy, but the world doesn't want to pay me for that so I have to do something else.

backpage ftw. Believe it or not there's a real dearth of male escorts out there. You can get paid decent money in a pinch and in most cases you don't even sleep with them.

I'd probably have to lose weight and I'm far too lazy, plus it's mostly dudes who hire male escorts

I met a 50 something year old lady in her hotel once and all I did was listen to her talk about her cats for an hour and a half and just agree with everything she says and she gave me $150. I never even shook her hand.

And if I were a social worker or psychologist (same track in graduate school) I could do that from an office and save of gas money, all without having to put a sneaky ad in the paper!

Nah but you'd have insane taxes and fees and licenses and you'd be the government's bitch. You wouldn't be able to control your schedule or your day to day life. You'd be a whore for a mortgage and the only difference would be that you'd convinced yourself that your false sense of security is real.

I meant 150 in take home pay, and why wouldn't I control my schedule? What's there in life that I wouldn't control? Do you live in some magic place where you don't pay rent?

I pay rent, but it just naturally comes to me. I don't go and clock in and out and sit someplace with my thumb up my ass wishing I was doing something more fun because I have to pay rent. I don't join up with a little group of people to pretend to help people with problems then just rape insurance companies all day. Either way man a hooker can see several people a day that's a lot more money.

None of my clients can afford insurance, unfortunately. But have fun ranting about what helps other people.

Yeah that's the big irony of going into the business of helping people. Only those that don't need help can really afford the services. Mr. $150 a day here's gotta have his mcmansion.

I just told you that my clients can't afford insurance, and you immediately say "yeah only rich people can get help"

are you broken?

I'm high as fuck, but I'm still not sure how you're gonna get $150 a day from broke people, unless you plan on living off the government I guess.
