"Followed dreams reaching higher.....couldn't survive the fall"
So the lyrics of one of my favorite bands say.
So I'm about to turn 27 and thanks to the good ol WT teachings of how this evil system of things is trying to corrupt us with Satan's higher education, now I'm stuck in a 100+ degree warehouse making crap money handling and shipping heavy packages while following bizarre rules the boss has. (this is the first warehouse I've seen where music isn't allowed of any type.)
My dream as a teenager was to work in computer arts and animation. Like most kids I was obssesed with videogames, but the only thing I loved more than the games was the making of the games. I loved watching "the making of" movies and games. I thought it was just a phase, but here I am a little more than 10 years later and I still keep thinking about it. I brought up this dream to my parents when I was a teen, but my parents kept reminding me of how the entertainment industry belongs to the Devil and it wouldn't be appropiate for a christian to take any part of it. I feel the sand running out the hourglass and I'm just sitting here waiting to get old. So I looked up bachelors degrees online for animation and I fell off the top of the world when I saw the price. It's between 80K and 100K!
I don't think I can go through with it at that price. I'm married now! If I had done this when I was single despite the bull$#!t everyone around me said, I might have been in a better situation now. I just suddenly got this hopless feeling of being destined to work at crappy blue collar jobs until I'm ready for retirement at the age of 40. A retirment I won't get until my mid sixties (maybe...big maybe). I think I set my hopes too high and reality came crashing down. Well, it could be worse I guess. There are thousands of people without a job so I guess I'm lucky to have one...no matter how crappy it is.
