Is Being A Working Woman Worth It?
I just worked 15 hours today and I'm in a pretty pensive state. Is it really worth it to go through 4 years of undergrad, then studying for grad school, getting in some high debt, then working for rest of my life to pay off those loans and feel like grad school was worth it? Like I get the feminist argument is that women should have their own careers for independence, to not be subordinated by a husband, etc. But if its not being "subordinated" by a man - its being subordinated by your employer! Your employer deciding when you wake up, work, eat, sleep. Etc. Like I spent all my undergrad in the library taking more than 22 credits regularly, when I could've been focusing on getting super skinny and getting hot and finding a husband? Like my friend got married at 23, she's super gorgeous, and with a millionaire who gives her everything. All she does is model and look pretty (and she's not even a highly booked model at all). Like is it normal to wonder, why am I going this route- just to feel like an ivy league degree was worth it, and feel so much pressure to go to grad school since I'm motivated to do it bc of many influencing factors?
