Yesterday they wanted someone with an Associates. Today they want someone with a Bachelors. Tomorrow they want someone with a Masters. I will NOT let someone else determine my future success based on what they think I'm worth. I will NOT slave myself away to a broken educational system that charges me 100% tuition (along with ridiculous & irrelevant fees) to teach me 40 % of what I actually need to know to succeed in "the real world"  then say  I'm in their debt for the rest of my life. I WILL determine my own value. I WILL set my own standards & goals and achieve them through pure will, determination & passion.
