a friend of mine always says that.... he's been on the dole for years hoping to one day to find his "dream career", it bugs the life out of me!
I don't hate work but i don't believe there's a realistic dream job out there for me, I'm working to provide a good life for myself and to be able to support friends/family if needs be.
my little brother has just finished his law degree and there's little or nothing for him & his friends to do but continue on studying for a few more years. i dont see how that could be anyone's dream! sorry for being negative, just wanted to show the flip side. i think watching people struggle the last few years has showed me the importance of having a decent job with a regular wage
by the way I did go back to college at 26 and just finished recently(30) and went straight into a job, i couldve picked plenty of courses that wouldve been closer to what id consider "dream career" paths, but I went with IT
i guess if you've financial support/savings etc to get you through years of college there's nothing really stopping you
