L'argent et le bonheur

It's really hard to stick to my position that money doesn't matter when all around me, money seems to matter. A lot. I guess it's only in this year, when issues pertaining university education start to come into the picture that it dawns upon me just how much money matters. I mean, if I were from a relatively well-off family, I wouldn't even trouble over scholarships or an overseas education. I could make decisions with less financial considerations.

Can money really not buy happiness? Of course it can't buy all kinds of happiness and priceless experiences, but is it completely useless in this aspect?

Still, not that I'm gonna seek wealth in my future career anyway, I know too well that I'm not going to sustain with such a meaningless goal (to me, at least). Nevertheless, it kinda bursts my bubble, and brings me back from my idealistic thinking. Honestly, you can't just go on living life without finding a direction and trying to seek your true passion / purpose. Perhaps it's time to sit down and really think about what you want in life.

Back to work tomorrow - which starts in approximately 2 minutes.
