Is life really harder with just a college education? should university be an option after?
Im in high school still and its my junior year and i was wondering which is better to go to ... based on jobs and stuff. Like university I heard you can make lots of money and stuff but when it comes down to it is if your happy. And i want to be happy in the job that i do.. and im not really looking for the business type of job I want more artsy type but i dont know what type of artsy thing i want.. so would college be best. My work habbits are not the best and im taking everything applied and my marks are not that great either (to even consider getting into university) so college.. definatly first but university after? and I dont know what i want to do in college.. like cosmotology is fun and stuff but imagin doing that your whole life making like minum wage. I come from a family were school and education matters and there definatly wanting me to go to university.. but I know i wont get in.. People please tell why is it really that big of a deal if you just have college education?
