A path towards a well-paying career is still looking hazy for me. There are still many math and engineering-related classes to take. Now I understand why other engineers have said that they became quite ill while going through engineering school. My reasons for succeeding are mostly in helping others, though. My family here in the states and many of my relatives in Greece are not doing well at all financially, especially on my mom's side. I don't care about myself so much. Just enough to give me a semi-comfortable living, but more importantly, giving money to my family who desperately need money. I try to do that now with the money I've saved up, but I can only give so much with my current income. Colleges are job factories. That's how I view them now. But if I have to concede to that fact, then I can reexamine my motivations in going through the grueling process, and working hard in helping others, and not getting an education and career out of greed or material wealth.
