My Thoughts About School

Post secondary education is a way the government exploits families by telling them that if you go to school you can get a better job and get a piece of the American pie. What they don’t tell you is that its all lies and they just want you’re money. How sad right?

Did I mention that when you go to college you are just learning one thing (unless you double major) that prepares you for a job? A job where you work for someone and you are not the boss. See I told someone at work about this and they looked at me as if I was crazy and said that you need college to live a better life.

Well… yes and no. See I was fortunate enough to grow up in a household with a father that has an entrepreneurs mind set. He also warned me about the work force and how they will treat you. So far I’ve been treated like shit and I don’t like it.

Now I know everyone can’t just go into business because you are still going to need people to work for you and if everyone was a businessman/woman than you wouldn’t have a workforce. It gets a little more complex than that little flimsy example I gave but the point is, College is BS and money is a lie.

Anatomy

Guess what guys? I’ve finally paid off my mac! (Hoorayy!) Now to get down to business.

Its July 12th and its safe to say that the summer is almost over. I’ve already pictured it. July will fly by like all the other months and before we know school will be back in session and trying to type up a paper will be the hardest thing to do since the invention of mechanical pencils.

But last night I was rolling the the city with my homie Brandon and I began to think to myself. “What have I done all this summer?” The question was starting to make me think that I wasted my entire summer and that I didn’t get enough skating in. As we rode around, specifically out on Bardstown rd, I realized that I really didn’t waste my summer at all. Its was pretty eventful. I spent a lot of time with the homies, wrote a lot of cool songs, skated a lot on the days it didn’t rain, learned switch tricks, and even made some awesome new friends.

The ideal summer that I had in mind before listing all of that was to just skate in Newburg and read books. Well guess what? I even did that too. I remember the summer prior to this one it was one of those “getting back to your roots” type ordeal. I had just got out of my first relationship, so actually getting to do what I want was something new and fascinating to me. I discovered my inner self and who I really was as I skated and listened to music. Fast forward to now I’ve done a lot more soul searching and a lot more tree blowing and have enjoyed it. I haven’t just had fun but have learned a lot.

Oh and remember my early life crisis? Well last night I made another realization that in just 3 and 1/2 months I’ll be 22. A scary number in my eyes but its what has the ball rolling and encouraging me to do more with my life and to live out all of my dreams. Just wait, you’ll be hearing from me a whole lot more.
