I am fully aware that my chosen career path will not make me filthy rich.
I didn’t choose to study environmental science to make a six-figure salary.
I did it because I have passion for it, and I know the education I will gain and the fulfilling life I will lead will be worth FAR more than any amount of money I could possibly make.
There are days where I walk out of class and into my car and literally have to stop and gather myself before driving because it’s really fucking tolling to hear how humans are essentially parasites, leeching this planet of everything it has to offer, day after day after day. The fact that I contribute to this makes me sick.
This major is beautiful and depressing and enlightening.
It brings me more happiness and anxiety than anything else ever has.
