Yeah no problem im glad i could help :) and it seems like you pretty much got the message! As long as youre doing what you want to do dont worry about what anyone else thinks everyones path in life is different ! and oh yeah see law enforcement you definitely dont have to worry about a degree and its still a career that is as respectable and requires as much hard work as anything else!
A degree isnt something you should get because you want girls to date you or you want lots of money. Personally, I am someone who always saw the value in a degree not just because of the opportunities that it would open up for my future but because i think it says alot about someones character and builds a persons character like the point of school in general is to become educated to better yourself in that way but there are alot of ways to better yourself aside from education as well. But as for dating wise a guy doesnt have to have a college degree but he does have to be doing well for himself if were gonna be serious and he definatelly has to have a good personality.
of course i answered honestly, i wouldnt take the time to answer something if i wasnt going to be honest :) And of course you can be successful! There are many different ways to reach success and everyones idea of what success is is different. As for the most general definition you dont need a degree to be successful you just need to be willing to work hard and take opportunities ! :D
