I was a religion major.
Most jobs want business or computing majors, but my passion was (and still is) the big questions in life. I don’t regret my decision.
I’m almost done with my student loans, but I had to go bankrupt on credit cards. Some choices I made were foolish. Others were necessary at the time. Now I live with my mom to help make ends meet.
I’ve worked retail for eight years.
BUT I HAVE A JOB!
So many people in this world would switch places with me in a heartbeat, rather than continue dying of famine or disease.
Some of my peers object: “I didn’t go to college to sell clothes.” I’m appalled by their sense of entitlement.
You don’t need to like your job - but don’t look down on mine.
I don’t share your opinion - so don’t speak for me.
OCCUPY WALL STREET, you do NOT speak for me.
I am the 53%: working hard, and grateful for my life.
