We want a house, a car, a fancy freaking vacation, and prestige, so what do we do? We go to school, and we get jobs we hate, to pay for the things we want. We deal with people we don’t like and waste years of our lives sitting in stark, fluorescent-lit rooms and listening to co-workers who bore us, so we can pay for a small amount of precious time to enjoy what makes us happy. To achieve a fraction of our lives just feeling as if it was all worth it.
We sacrifice to earn.
