Logan, every week your "Do 1 Thing" headlines are so delightful. So, you're nailing it in that respect.
There's nothing wrong with being a bartender. But mostly, those jobs don't make enough money to be able to save for retirement AND traveling, or maybe a down payment. and maybe owning a house isn't important, but as you get older and see how quickly things can change the saving opportunity and benefits those 9-5 jobs represent become reaaal important. And the opportunity to extend those benefits to your family, if you decide to have one. As for the other guy surviving by couch surfing...you're SO reliant on other people to house you. I wouldn't be into that.
@Amanda@twitter That's true. But a lot of my friends come back feeling that maybe they made the wrong call--economy didn't completely recover, should've been establishing some kind of career, grad school didn't pay off with a job.
What I mostly take from this is what a different world it was for young grads/professionals in 2003, when he first graduated, and 2006, when he finished the Denmark program. Still a good time to be all whimsical.
Also, does your operatic singing voice sound very different from your musical theater singing voice? Is this a silly question? Can we hear you sing? :)
I feel like this could be a fantastic Kickstarter campaign. Everyone would love to feel like a patron of a now-obscure art!
