I'm worried I'm gonna end up like you

 

When I was in my twenties, I worried that I'd end up poor and restricted like my parents.

 

So I worked at things that would progressively make me more skilled and more valuable. Mathematics, then programming, and eventually a bit of physics and engineering principles.

 

The work has been challenging. At times I've done some things that haven't been done before. (Not earth-shaking, but still innovative. Minor progress.)

 

So I'm not poor. Here in Florida, I'm not even middle class anymore. I'll be ok in retirement. Of course, my retirement plans could get delayed a couple of years if the stock market (and consequently my 401K) tumbles due to the orange turdman's trade wars. Or if the Republicans eviscerate Social Security and Medicare.

 

But there are far worse things than having challenging and rewarding work.

Your roost is a lawn?
