I agree whole heartedly. I do not think it matters what someone does for a living (as long as it is legal of course) I would never look down on anyone. Some people are unable to work too, that shouldn't make them second class citizens. Some people like having a job that they do not have to take home with them, so they can relax and enjoy life.
I must admit I am not one of them. I am too ambitious for my own good.

I was in no way trying to insult those who work fast food.

I was insulting the bullies who end up working fast food or becoming drug and alcohol addicts or criminals or whatever else solely because of their own bad choices.

Yes, some people are forced into unfortunate life circumstances that causes them to have to work at fast food or retail for a time; these people I have respect for because at least they're trying to get by on their own. Those who have to work at fast food because they made a bunch of poor choices and ruined their life all because they were a piece of crap cowardly bully who hurt many innocent people don't get any sympathy nor pity from me.

Bullies who end up being forced to work at a job that most people would hate that they would likely be miserable at and looked down upon by society when they used to put down people who they deemed "weaker" or "worse" than them is nothing more than an act of justice in my opinion.

I am normally respectful to people who work fast food because I know that nobody in their right mind would want to be there, however, if I ever met one of my former bullies at a fast food joint taking my order, I would delight on tormenting them as they did me back in the day just to make them hate their life a little bit more all while grinning wickedly at the fact that they can't retaliate out of fear of them losing their job.

What's the point of living without a touch of chaos and madness?

Damn insightful of you especially in the middle of such feelings! Well done. I promise you, that type of self-reflection with be worth much more going forward than being the most popular person in school.

For what it's worth, I was also a nerd in school. I have Aspergers but it wasn't something the doctors were looking for back in the day and so I went undiagnosed and blamed and shamed for my social awkwardness. Since then I've starred in an infomercial, had two documentaries done on me (for my achievements, not my shortcomings), written two books, etc. Life got better and a willingness for self-examination led the way. I have high hopes for you.

Here in Scotland, it is not as simple as that. It mostly boils down to money and your social/economic back round. Some of the brightest students have ended up on minimum wage( not necessarily me I am talking about, I am an exception to rules)
I have a friend who went to university and says to me I didn't miss anything and it didn't help her get a good job.
There is no such thing as scholarships. Nursing used to be funded by government so you had no fees to pay, do not know if that still applies. Anyway Scotland is different from England no upfront fees. Great right??
Not that simple. If I had went to university just to please my family, I would have had to get a job so I had money to spend, pay my accommodation, cost of living etc. I would have got a grant but a measly 1200 ish pounds for an entire year. Well and a loan of course which would have covered my digs but then I obviously would be in debt.
I wish I had the attitude back then of "I should live for now" and been confident that I would have landed that dream job. I was jaded at the ripe young age of 15 and I lost focus.

But as your theories go all the "cool" gang from my high school have better jobs than some of the more clever students because they were supported emotionally and financially by their families who were comfortably off.
I was just pissed at everyone before I even reached university. I wanted to study Theology or something useless like philosophy. But coming from a working class background, I had the pressure of doing something "realistic" or tangible. A few years back I even considered nursing. Considering I have been in the psych ward on numerous occasions, it was the worst possible choice someone in my shoes should have considered.
All I have now is my art. If I could reach just one person I would be happy.

I was never going to study nursing. It was just a cover because I had friends saying to me what's the point in studying what I wanted to study. I always had vision to be a writer.

In reality, human psychology is a rather complicated thing. A person gets stuck in a certain framework of his ideas about what she is better to be, and not about who she really is. Recently, I worked on research with one essays-service.com and conducted a parallel questionnaire. My suspicions have been confirmed, in the middle of everyone live a second "I". Because the style of people's behavior is overrated. This is just an image and not a real person.
