What's wrong with that?

When I was younger, I will feel very depressed when my friends share with me their plans for the future. None of them sounds like mine and I felt like an outcast. Then followed a period when everyone quiets down because no one really met their goals. And just yesterday, my colleague is telling me about her plan to take up her studies again so she could land a better job. So just what is wrong with me not wanting to further my studies and instead wanting to earn cash from the territory I am most familiar with - the internet?

Earning some cash on the internet is one thing... But can you earn enough to pay the bills? Reality is that we all need money to pay the bills and do what we want. Being on a pension only permit you to survive barely... but don't permit you to do anything. So at the end of the day... We all need a job... And if you need to go to work... You might as well study to get the best possible job. Because work is work... 8 hours a day is 8 hours a day... no matter what you do. The only difference is your pay check at the end of the month. And usually... the harder you have to work... the less you get paid. Because people get the real money to use their brain... not their muscle.

I have a good job, what I am doing online now is getting extra cash. What I can't get over is, while I am choosing to do this with my free time, someone else opted to study which seems to be a better way out in life.

Everybody is different... and you have to respect that. Some people have more ambitions than some others. If that person choose to study... it is because it wants to achieve bigger things. Unless you are an internet genius... it is very unlikely that you will ever make some decent money on the internet.
