In my vlogs, I definitely tend to glorify college and make it seem like it's the most wonderful place on the planet, which frankly, sometimes it is... BUT on today's show, Jackson and I completely roast college and basically show you that it's completely pointless. It is fun though. Really fun. So enjoy :)
Thoughts I'd like to add:
College is definitely necessary for those interested in becoming a lawyer or Doctor, and Jackson and I would both agree that it's an effective system for garnering capable workers within those respective fields. However, I would argue that the majority of career path options–from film production, to art or acting, business, PR, journalism, etc.– are better learned through experience than fake class room education. A good example of this is my experience with learning languages.
In high school, I took 6 years of Spanish, finishing the AP course my senior year. However, even after 6 years of tests and quizzes, I was yet to be fluent in the language. After I graduated however, my parents took me to Barcelona, and through this immersive experience, I learned more in 10 days than I did in 6 years of formal class room lectures!!!
I also visited Israel in January of 2016 for 12 days, and by the end of the trip, I was able to hold a simple conversation... Something that took me 3 or 4 years to 'learn' in Spanish classes. 😶
Now if you follow me across any social media platform, you know I'm very forward about the fact that I am a bit of a book nerd. This is, I promise you, not a pretentious act, but a constant reminder to everyone that follows me how much I believe that self education is the best and perhaps the only way to truly arm yourself for success in life.
Please. Start. Reading.
Suck at reading?
ANYWAY... Back to college...
actually nah, let's end this with a quote I saw just the other day...
"Some people get an education without going to college... the rest get it after they get out" - Mark Twain
But on the real... I love college lol.
