I'm broken beyond repair, but I'm proud of how hard I've tried.
But the whole desire for the approval of others, social media likes, stack exchange reputation, sure there is an enormous difference between the two, I get none of the former because I'm an asshole, and I've got some of the later, but at the end of the day working hard does not equate to financial reward.
There are quirky "influencers" that are literally millionaires, but I'm certain that I'm far from the only one that's thrown everything into much more demanding academic pursuits but are living below the poverty line.
But this is the world's order now.
Terrifying, isn't it?
