Spend nearly half a decade in university (or an actual half decade, in my case), and then graduate to find a job in the field you studied. That’s typically how these things work at my age and more importantly, what I “should” be striving for after devoting nearly my entire life to getting a proper education. When I was younger, I always thought about the job that I would work in when I finally finished the whole process of my schooling. It was always a “real” job that I envisioned: a veterinarian, a doctor, a clinical psychologist, a teacher. The latter profession, the final “real” job I planned on getting into, didn’t pan out partly because I only applied to one school and didn’t get accepted, but mostly because (I’d like to say) A) I wasn’t that into it and consequently, B) I clearly wasn’t aligning myself with an acceptance to teacher’s college, nor putting enough effort into getting to the point where I would get accepted.
