That's true. But unfortunately by the time parents have enough money to retire, their kids are grown up, married and in their 20's or 30's.

My career aspiration is to make as much money as possible with as less responsibility as possible.

I don't hate working, but job to me is merely a means of feeding myself and my family, and to save decent money for retirement.

I want to be an actuary. I'd be okay with doing anything with data and math but it doesn't seem like doing anything but grunt reinsurance work until I either get a credential, go back to school for something else or completely leave the industry.

It's 2019, there are other data and math jobs out there. I'm not saying they are better, but if this isn't working out for you...

Additionally, I am able to use colorful terms that illustrate my ideas, words that exceed two syllables in length, and even proper punctuation (most of the time).
