If you guys/lades had any idea what I went though growing up in Rome, they drilled all that knowledge in my head and I'm thankful for them. I love knowledge and learning more about the World.

After seeing the ugliness of the world (like Barbarian, Uneducated people in the Tribes).. I wanted to expand Rome, the greatest Civilization! So the future children will have some Education, actually to learn how to read and write. See the beauty of the thing man have written.. Wisdom.

((I'm Role playing as Marcus Octavius)) :p

Yes, Yes Colin/Karkarov used to be barbarian till he meet me and learn how to read and write in order to track me down and get his revenge :p. j/k

((Speaking of the Anime Movie Highlander: The Search for Vengeance))

I agree with you, especially about high school. And every now and then I think back and am grateful that I'm no longer in high school.

As for college I have been in community college for 3 years even though I could have graduated within 2 and a half years.

So far it's been better than high school. Going to school full time I'm only there for a couple hours a day whereas for high school you are there for 7+ hours a day just for schooling.

Plus you have more powe and autonomy in college than high school.

How much are you paying for college? At this new University I'm going to be transferring to, I'm going to have to pay 14k a year for tuition. Whereas in community college it was about 2 grand a semester so 4 grand a year and my parents paid. But they won't be paying for my last two years at a four year school.

Well, for me schools not that bad besides math class. Math is really the only boring class for me.We all know the currency of the economy are in the hands of a few wealthy men who own private banks in the us and around the world. Even so with hardwork and knowing what you want to do and major in you can live a comfortable life.Theres really nothing you can do to the bankers and other rich families these guys are powerful they got the airforce,army,and many other groups in their pocket.Even if people wanted to change how the debt based economy is runned everbody would need to change their mental state first.Alot of americans are like walking zombies.They believe everything the government tells them,they don't question it they just do what there told just sheeps.In this day and age the only thing you can do is work hard,find love,chase your dream,and be the best person you can be honestly.

Well sometimes I do feel like going into Computer Science is going to be a waste of time. But I'm always glued to my laptop, I go on google and see how to make basic apps like batch files or whatever they are called. Looked up cmd commands, watch computer science courses on youtube.

But in the end, I do like computers. I have a vague understanding about how MEMORY stores information for the CPU to use and open an application and I have not even enrolled in a computer science degree yet XD

Just do what you like, college is all about finding who you are.

No, I think school was more often not boring for me. GE courses were pretty hit and miss, but my major and elective courses were mostly great.

Same.

School makes learning stressful & boring instead of fun like it should always have been.

Nah it's interesting for the most part, but you get those classes that can be boring.

School isn't fun, but it's worth it in the long run if you put enough effort in.

School is fine, but homework is the worst invention of mankind. It helps though.

I hated compulsory schooling, but once I got to college and got to choose my own classes I was always excited to go to school. I miss school now.

College may be boring, but its a huge stepping stone in how much most people will make in their lives. I have a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering and I make almost double what both my brothers with only high school make. And luckily, engineers don't care much for politics so I never really felt "indoctrinated" in anything. Pretty much just raw information. I would say you should probably pick something more useful then psychology though. That's pretty much a useless degree.


Well I say screw school. I think school is pretty much useless. If you've read Rich Dad & Poor Dad, you will success in life has absolutely nothing to do with how much time you spend in school.

These people are examples of millionaires that did not go to university.

School just teaches you how to mindless regurgitate a bunch of nonsense. That's useless in life. The people who are successful in life are those that are able to critically think and creatively solve problems.

I am sure you enjoy your job as an engineer, but you are still a wage slave to someone else. Enjoy being someone else's wage slave.


Uh, I... issues?

While I agree with your OP and follow-up posts concerning Arts-related fields, like programming, web design, painting (etc), writing, music, etc...

For science I can't agree with you at all. You need to go to school if you're learning physical sciences because you actually need to do labs and get hands-on experience that you can't really get anywhere else unless a company /for some reason/ hires you and teaches you on-site. But, I guess for the theory-only portions of physical sciences, you /could/ teach yourself that stuff.
