Natal Day: The day I descended on this Mother Earth

After lying low and bedridden for a week with temperature, had all the time in the world to ponder over the year goneby and I realized again I had done nothing special to feel exceptional but such is this important day that makes you feel and act "SPECIAL", albeit if you are not!

I invited my buddies for the celebration and the weather looks hopelessly beautiful ,I am afraid they ll all make it...DAMN..The day I was born nothing epochal happened just another baby birth like Jesus and the only differnce I can think of is I was born in a hospital...

During my laziness or illness, there were hundred of thoughts which were erupting in my mind :

One of them was the turmoil which I had gone through in completing the Graduation was not worth at all after I see Maria Sharapova, a barely 18 year old, raking in millions or Britney spears a millionaire many times over for just belting out "oops I did it again !!!" ....And what about the college dropouts Bill Gates and Larry Ellison no certified degree and they are the richest in the world!!

So does it make sense to spend Four important years in graduating out of Engineering College? All those sleepless nights I spent burning the midnight oil and more Nights stressing about the result now I come to think of it I would be better off playing a game like Tennis or just singing the blues!!

So does Good education really helps ...I am unable to fathom ...

Happy belated birthday!
The funny thing about college is that years ago it was the only way to make decent money in your lifetime. Now? It's more of a 'standby' incase whatever else you decide to do fails. My daughter works with two waitresses who have four years of college and a degree under their belt. Why waitressing? Because they bring home about $700-$900 a week, most of it in the form of tips.

Around the corner from me is the world's largest casino. They have employed more degreed Psychologists, Physical Therapists, Electrical Engineers, Paralegals and Accountants than anyplace else in the area, but they're all working in the capacity of waitressing, bartending, money-handlers, valets and what have you. Their degrees hang on their walls at home, collecting dust. They simply cannot get jobs that pay as well.
It's kinda sad.

Don't ever think that a college or University degree is to be evaluated solely in terms of it's earning power. The whole experience of doing your 3 or 4 years is priceless. And you have an engineering degree? Wow! That is fucking awesome. Remember, if you hadn't done your time, you would have been rubbing shoulders with a different set of people. College, regardless of the discipline you're studying, expands your consciousness, and does more for you than money ever can. Don't knock it.

I always studied out of compulsion but not passion, though I wonder how I made to top of the college all the time. May be inherent fear that I lose out in competition. Clearly it makes sense if you know what you are supposed to do and not follow herd.
