    I think I'm going back to school soon for another classical based useless degree.

    Someone talk me out of it. But also I'm probably just going to. This time, I want to study archeology. I could go for a master's and PhD I guess and then be the Lord of digging holes.


    I need to finish this year/two of school first though. Apparently I'm going for the lifelong student achievement.

    How are you going to pay for this schooling? And what's the monetary gain from getting such a degree (assuming you're not already working in the field of archaeology)?

    1.) With money, presumedly. That is generally how people buy things, correct? :P

    2.) I'd go into research after, which I should really be doing anyway it's my superpower and I'm currently doing it for fun. I don't really worry about money though and It's fair that it can be a large factor especially in places like the US where college can be insanely expensive. It's about €2000-3000 a year where I live at a top University. Obviously research isn't about making money, but if I just wanted to make money it's not very difficult to learn Python and from there programing is pretty in demand here. I don't have to worry about "what makes the most money" though. If I did, I'd be in finance, moving money around but not doing anything that actually needs to be a job. I'm pretty happy I don't have to do that tbh.

    I meant coming up with the large sum of money required to attend college, at least if you live in the US. Hasn't the US student debt bubble exceeded the $1 trillion mark a while ago?

    If you have the time and money, go for it.

    Well if you're looking at the list for useless degrees, I just double checked with Google whether archeology made that list. It did. I personally consider it much more useless than arts or music. If you want to be a lifelong student and really like digging holes I would think there were other things that satisfy those two criteria that made more of said money afterwords that you wont critically handicap yourself through lifelong debt. Pursuing higher levels of a degree seems like a bad bet to me, it's what everyone does when they cant get employed, double down their chips behind the hand they should have folded earlier but are now invested in.
    I'd throw in you can do what you love but given the first statement of your post that's probably not what you want to hear, if you're looking for a passion university can't sell you a heart but it can sell you DIY homework assignments.
