What is so hard to understand about this picture?

I dropped out of highschool(which I do not recommend by tue way) but I busted my ass, and now at 27 years old I am making 6 figures doing maintenance and repair on heavy mining machinery, which I learned in the US Navy.

Why is my generation literally "gimmiegimmiegimmiegimme!!!!!!!! #feelthebern"
>>
because living to work is fucking retarded

lol, complete delusion

Because you see stupid shit on the internet and decide to generalize it to "your generation" and then choose to bitch about it anonymously based off some other shit you also found on the internet.

Some of you people just search for shit to bitch about.

>which I learned in the US Navy.
Omg anon I'm in the Navy but my rating is Sonar Tech.

How long were you in for that you were able to be employed by the private sector? Also I went to C-school, so I might be able to get certified by a few unions.

Teach me your ways senpai

Welcome to the entire mentality of the collective newfags.

this is actually a pretty good moral code to live by if you're actually stuck in a shitty dead end job. It's absolutely possible to pretend you're enjoying something enough that you actually start to.


The only thing I disagree with is the "I don't follow my passion" thing. Everyone should fucking TRY to do what they enjoy and live a happy fulfilling life. Not run out and volunteer to be garbage men just because the position is available.

I'm conflicted about this guy, on one hand people like him are orderly, clean, and keep to themselves. But they are also telling you you aren't worth as much as you would like to be, which is grounds for choosing to kill yourself imo.

If I have to live in squalor while working just to avoid debt I won't work hard anymore because I have no incentive. He might be a mouthpiece for greedy bastards to control their workers.

>>25741629
Ok so did the Navy contribute at all to your current employment situation?

I mean obviously theres the G.I. Bill but you seem to have not needed it.

Because life isn't worth it unless a certain amount is done for us. I didn't sign up to have to get a job or go to college. I just want to live

Motherfucker they have bases, on land, that guys work and live on.

You think everyone in the Navy/USMC is on a boat?

Aw hell I can't blame you people think that going into the army is a 24/7 camping trip for several years.

No, what I meant is that if you're in the Navy, you're probably successful on all planes.

So why /r9k/?

>>25741936
The military is full of fuck ups across the board, even the Navy.
>>
>>25741936
Being in the Military is great for me because all the emotions are (supposed to be) flat and predictable.

Admittedly everyone tells me I make them more nervous than even strict chiefs because of my demeanor. I have aspergers probably but fortunately I never got a diagnosis.

Either way I'm a khv because I'm prude and sex is only something that happens in fiction in my mind.

You don't need to be out of shape to post on this board which is the only thing keeping anyone out of the Military desu

Unpopular opinion, but I have a great respect for drop-outs who manage to still work hard and end up somewhere respectable. Good shit Op
>>
Hard work and money are pointless if you don't have the time to enjoy it. Unless you are one of the blessed few who are able to make a living working off something they are very passionate about and without losing said passion, "live to work" is an awful mentality that shows you're an uncreative cuck with no awareness of the value of life.

Fuck off unless you literally live in the ghetto.

Maybe we could have a better discussion about your picture when you stop catering to ants and deliver a resolution of it readable for humans.

I want to be an astronomer. I love space. I am fascinated by anything that has to do with space. I spend a lot of my free time studying space. Career-wise, the one thing in life I want to do is astronomy. The problem is I have shitastic math skills, and those are essential to be an astronomer. I have tried and tried and tried to git gud at math, but it just does not click for me. I had to bust my ass to barely get C's in every math class I ever took and not once did I really understand the material.

I have to spend the rest of my life knowing I can never do the one thing I am passionate about. The only field where I would actually be motivated to excel and look forward to work is forever off-limits to me because I can't do math. Do you know how fucking crushing it is to carry around that weight every day? I can't even clear my head on night walks because looking at the sky reminds me of the fact that I will never be an astronomer.

I have had jobs but I'm miserable at all of them and complain about how shitty they are because it's not the one thing I want to do. I just slack off and do the least amount of work required to get by because it's really hard to give a fuck about jobs that feel like a waste of life. Every hour spent at a job that isn't astronomer is another reminder that I'm a failure and I will never do what I love.

If you're content doing whatever as long as it pays enough to live comfortably, good for you. But we're not all wired like that. Nothing will ever make me OK with the fact that I can't do what I want to do.

>>25741473
Most of that image is about giving yourself cognitive dissonance to cope with your own awful career choice. And of course it's only worthwhile to work a shit job when your private life is worth working for.

Not following your passion is something every high school kid needs to learn though.
The most important thing is the applicability of your learned skills. When you do work that is in demand, success and happiness come along automatically. Job security and financial stability come first, while passions can be done Wish I was smart enough to understand this a decade ago, instead I 'followed my dreams' and wasted time and money on a meme-tier education, before switching.

*while passions can be followed in your free time, with the money you made while working.

Getting rich from playing basketball or rapping is the ghetto dream, not getting middle class by working a 9 to 5 job

Work does not exist to fulfil your every emotional need. Part of becoming a mature adult is developing the ability to cultivate personal satisfaction with your life even when you are doing things you don't necessarily "love". Even self-employed artisans who spend their days patiently hand-crafting objects of beauty have to spend some time on bullshit: finding studio space; dealing with asshole customers and suppliers; updating the website, etc
