I'm living my dream life.
Childhood dream job. Check.
Childhood dream pay. Check.

Only, a couple decades of inflation mean that "childhood dream" paycheck barely pays the bills and the spouse shops at the dented can grocer so everything tastes a little stale. Edible, but not enjoyable.

Like my life.

Work, home, sleep, repeat.

I thought there'd be more to life.



Living in stupid America, I can't even afford to take college classes for fun/profit because they cost so much.

I loved college, learning new things, building skills and all that.

Not worth it anymore. The system is designed to extract every bit of worth from you, but returns only the bare minimum.

Would it be better in another country? Maybe. Without the funds to travel it's a moot point.
