One of my major failures heading to Uni was heading to Uni and not knowing what my degree was used for. I chose a Bachelor of Science and majored in Mathematics being told that studying a STEM subject would get you a 6 figure salary. Now I’m $20,000 in HECS debt, and doing bar tending. But loving it. I picked up bartending as a part-time job whilst studying for my degree. So I guess without my degree I would’ve probably never found my passion. It was a weird little path, but I guess it cost me a whole degree and HECS to find it. In that regard, I have no regrets going to Uni. It’s just that if I could’ve done it for free whilst finding my passion then that would’ve been ten times better.
I currently work at one of Australia’s best bars, and I plan to go to London or New York later to work and live. My life isn’t a failure per se, but if we had to zoom in back to my younger days that would be one. But hey, look at me now. I’m even studying up on bar-tending right now! Look at this book I’m reading man.
