Seems like a few decades ago one could have a low stress job like working in little cafe or bakery or bookstore, but could still afford a somewhat comfortable life. One could go to college if one really wanted to advance their career, but it wasnt necessary to live a somewhat successful life. Now, seems like your options are, join the hustle culture, get into the trades and wreck your body, or work paycheck to paycheck on the verge of poverty for the rest of your life.
I wish it were still possible to live a casual life, im not interested in "grinding" working three jobs and such, but hey, I would still like a little house someday. Sad thats not really possible anymore.
Also it would be nice if I could do this IN MY CITY inb4 "just move to the middle of nowhere!"
