I'd rather enjoy my life for ~15 years before realizing "I'm in some sh*t now, but damn was I happy" than live my entire life, including my youth, tryna convince myself that I'm happy whilst mulling about in complacency.
I don't plan on joining the real world for a couple years anyways though, so my advice is only really for a certain type of person I guess. Depends on your goals and what you value I guess.
Edit: It's probably imperative to add that I don't plan on living in the US again until I'm at least 30 (10 years), so it's undoubtedly different if you're tryna be competitive in the American job force.
For example, working even the shittiest of jobs in Australia will get you much more than shitty American jobs. Hell, $18 AUD minimum for fast food workers in NSW. Sure, cost of living is higher, but you can still live super cheap and have a good amount of money left over for other things.
Now add a degree from a highly touted American university? Doesn't really matter what it is (assuming it's not like some visual arts degree or something), you can make a living doing what you love.. And in a place that you love.
This is an issue for almost all young people...until they learn what it really costs in the real world.
As a yute, I always looked at 50k as a huge amount of money to earn in a year, now I want to keep that much in my checking account.
Things are different, when you aren't on the teet anymore.
