Don't buy the hype

I just read this article about student loans and how the majority of 22 year olds (hehe, not me!!!) end college with massive debts and they can't afford jack schitt with ther e $2000/month paycheck after rent and interest payments. I don't care. I am laughing. The obsession this nation has with a fucking peice of paper is ridiculous. I'm not saying it's bad to go to MIT or Yale but c'mon, no peice of paper is worth 80 fucking grand. And that's just the cost of 1.5 semesters at those schools. I know that for a fact, as one of my friends goes to MIT, she and her parents pay roughly 50 fucking grand for each semester.

College is just a waste of time and money. You don't need to pay to sit in a class where the guy up in front doesn't care about you, as there's 500 students in the class. All thru college you will be told that learning happens on your own, and that the faculty is just there to "guide" you. Well, I've got news for you. You can learn by yourself without spending 50 grand a semester by not leaving your parents at age 18 and enrolling at your local community college. Don't fucking give me this garbage that those schools are second rate. The class sizes are smaller and thus the faculty has more time to spend with students. Face it, it's what high school should have been.

Anyhoo, don't think that just because you party your way thru an expensive 4 year school and somehow acquired enough credits to graduate, that you'll actually be a better person or get a higher paying job. You just may be surprised that you lost out to someone who spent the last four years not being stressed out and chased by creditors, but by enjoying life on his/her own pace and teaching themselves everything.

Learning never stops, yet college does, what does that tell you? Don't waste your time and money, you'll have to learn on your own eventually, why not start sooner?
