From a successful businessman, the act of going to Grad School is a waste of time. He viewed Grad School as chasing unnecessary glory. I’m not quite sure what he meant by it.
We all have plans in life. Being a foreigner, I must first acquire legal status. First, F1 then H1, then GC, ultimately citizenship. Who knows what will happen in the future. For me, right now, I have a timeline to follow. Got GC in March 2016, 5 years from that will be March 2021. Grad school will be done in SU2019. Hopefully I will be paying off the mortgage around then as well.
It is all about going out of my comfort zone. It is surely scary but I know everything will be alright as I know God is with me. No one lives my life but myself. So, screw those opinions or suggestions. I am going to live life the way I choose to.
Love life, enjoy life, embrace life.
