I'm sitting in the computer lab at Tisch Hall and I am just thinking, "Gee... I am paying a lot of money for this school. I hope it all pays off." But what if it doesn't, I have heard and seen so many people that go through college and have all the high ambitions then get out and end up in a sucky job that they hate and never really go where they want to in life. I'm not your ordinary college student, I'm not a kid, I am 29 years old with a wife and two children. I don't feel like I have a lot of time to go through a series of trials and errors.
I have the sucky job now and I never seem to make enough money to get my family to where we need to be or at least where my wife feels she should be. I think this makes it much harder. It is a lot of pressure and I nearly cracked last semester. I was hospitalized for nearly a month, I caught pneumonia and almost died.
This is the first extremely personal post I have made and there will probably not be many but I am becoming close to many of you slashdotters and I thought I should give you the low-down on my situation... just for the hell-of-it. If anyone has any words of inspiration I would appreciate them.
