  1. @Knock Thank you for your response. What drew me to studying finance was that I've always known working a 9-5 corporate job was not ideal for me. However, finance is something that will always be in demand and will always provide a good salary. So, it's sort of a back up plan in that I truly hope to continue figuring life out as I get older and go through new experiences and perhaps one day start my own business or figure out an alternative way to make it on my own, but if for whatever reason I don't, I have a great degree that will always be able to supply me with a good job and income.
  2. @7thLetter Thank you, your response was very helpful. Option 2 is the obvious answer, and I already knew that. I think I just needed to hear it from someone else.
  3. Hello, I am a 20 year old college student with only 2 and a half semesters left in my pursuit of a finance degree. I hate it. I am extremely scared and uneasy about the thought of becoming a wage slave. The absolute last way I want to spend my life is in some cubical doing boring and repetitive work that will only get in the way of my consciousness work. This work has become my passion, mostly thanks to Leo. I have begun taking meditation and contemplation work very seriously and I've been reading about 3 books every month mostly from his book list. I have been putting off looking for an internship for quite a while now and it's beginning to catch up with me. My parents are always on my ass about it and I just can't get myself to accept the reality of the situation i'm in. I don't want to work a 9-5 job where all I do is kiss ass and work my tail off all for the benefit of someone else. It is completely unfulfilling. I am not lazy by any stretch of the imagination, I always work hard and do well in all my classes and endeavors but I desperately want to enjoy whatever it is I end up doing. Does anyone have any advice for me? I'm still so young and have a lot to learn but I just feel so lost and a little bit scared. Do I have to just bite the bullet and join the typical labor force until hopefully I start to figure it out in the future? It's so difficult because when you begin to realize just how deep and meaningful pursuing enlightenment is, everything else seems so petty and not worth my while. I would rather spend my time becoming aware of what my existence means than crunching numbers for some bullshit corporation! Please help, any advice is appreciated
