Everyone peer pressures us to go to college. The never ending hallway of education is a conveyer belt we get put on at a young age.It steals our time and robs us from our lives. We look at books all day and literally start to develop tunnel vision as our backs contort to the shape of a chair we are forced to sit in for 8 hours. School pretty much just teaches us to stop using our bodies and accept people in positions of authority they shouldn’t have over us.
We don’t get to study our interest, but a curriculum designed to bore us to death and fill our heads with outdated and irrelevant information. Our teachers tell us to go to college, our guidance counselors, our friends and parents tell us it’s the only way to get ahead in LIFE and get a good job, but they couldn’t be any more full of IT. Just google dropouts who are wildly successful.
Most jobs don’t require a college degree. In fact, once you graduate from college you will find yourself resenting most of your coworkers who don’t have a degree and are working the same position as you. You will notice your boss doesn’t have a degree and it will be hard for you to work for him for that reason.
We get college degrees because we think it means once we want to start a career it will be a cake walk, but even with a college degree, you don’t miraculously get a better job than the rest of the population. Sometimes your degree can hurt you because people will assume you are arrogant and entitled, especially non-degree holders, which is the majority of the population.
It seems to me high school drop-outs might have been the only ones able to think for themselves. If college were free in the United States, I would say hands down get an education, but college is not free. It will cost you 20,000 to 120,000 to get a college degree in the US and most of us BA holders are 60,000 in debt. It’s worse than that because our debt doesn’t just sit there, it grows with interest rates every day.
As soon as we set foot in university we have set ourselves up for financial ruin and failure, while the whole time our mentors told us, and practically dragged us through these very expensive classroom doors.
