Well as much money as I've spent at the vetschool over the past 20 years, you'd think they'd offer me a free education in veterinary medicine. I wanted to go, but didn't do it....back when I was fresh out of highschool, a vet degree cost about $60K and vets made about $45K at the time. I didn't go back to school until I was an adult. Now vet school is about $150K, and the average pay is still $45K. I have enough kindergarten math to figure out that one.
I thought hard about, and just didn't want to spend that cash, and went a different direction. We are at a decent age (not too young, not too old) in life with NO DEBT (yes, I yelled that out loud it is GREAT!) and just recently started getting to the point where we could have some fun, hence the new goldwing in the garage....so to each their own, I guess!
