For what it’s worth:

 It’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.

 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 flawed education 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 then achieve them through pure will, determination & passion.
