There are trades that you have to go to school for, for an example a plumber needs 4 years of schooling/apprenticeship before he can get his red ticket, also plumbers make good money and it doesn't matter about the economy cause you'll always need a plumber, also becoming a plumber is not easy, the schooling is tough, there's a ton of stuff you need to know and remember like codes and even a lot of math and science, if it was easy, then any dumbass can become a plumber. Also the stereotype for plumbers is that they just clean people's shit, which is totally not true, there's a service plumber (then you might have to unclog a toilet), commercial plumber, and residential plumbers

also there's no shame in getting into trades, I have soo many friends who have graduated from university and etc and can't find a job, and what do they do? They go to bcit and get a trade.

Just four years of undergrad or is post undergrad counted?

Undergrads can become accountants, nurses, pharmacists, engineers, financial planners, investment advisors etc.

With more school students can become doctors, dentists, lawyers, academics, etc.

It depends on what interests you and whether or not you are motivated enough to chase your dreams.

I'm my own boss. I work whenever I want, and I make money 24/7. I'm branching out into writing and I can say I've never been happier. Being an artist was never a dream when I was younger, but now that I'm where I am, I am living my dream.

I agree with you. Perhaps the risk of death makes one's job worth doing, as you need to be brave to do it. That could instill a sense of pride in what you do.

I hadn't thought about it from that perspective but I completely agree, I know that's how I would feel.

I was more thinking along the lines of Military jobs.

Success is a personal thing.


You might see some dude driving an E55 with the hottest bitches in the car and think, "Wow that guy has it all."

Yet he's got a coke addiction, is chubby, can't get his dick hard anymore, the women use him for his cash, his job stresses him out to the max, and he can't get a genuine hug without someone trying to pick his pocket.


Then you might see some dude at the side of the road in a broken down old Corolla and feel bad for him, yet he's happy with his job at Canadian Tire, can still plow his decently pretty wife anytime without needing a blue pill, has a townhouse in Langley with his woman and kids who love him, and he wakes up and goes to bed with a huge smile every night.


Simply by image and what's on paper the guy I first mentioned would be considered successful, but I'd rather be the second dude.

There is one logical flaw in your statement.

I don't think coke addict and chubby can be in the same sentence.

LOL!!!

I knew a couple people who were on the heavy side who did a -lot- of blow, it goes against logic, but their diets and lifestyles when off coke were really poor as well.
