I'd love to just drop out of school, but that only works for white males. You've never heard of a woman or some ethnic person dropping out of school and becoming a successful anything. The world doesn't work like that for the rest of us.
Now that the entire world knows that I suck at life, I'd like to give you advice on college. Have you ever gone to the casino and gambled away your hard earned money hoping that you'd hit the jackpot? College is the same way. Each year, people all over the world go to college to "learn" and spend hundreds of thousands of dollars that they don't have in exchange for a degree that isn't worth the paper it's printed on.
When I was little, growing up in the 90s, everyone boasted about staying in high school and getting a diploma. I was told that a diploma would set me apart from those "other" people who dropped out. So I stayed in school. I got all the way up to high school where I told that a diploma was no longer good enough. They told me I had to go to college too. Well, that's four more years of school and I needed money, so I went to work instead.
I advanced as far as I could at my job and I got valuable experience, but I went back to school in 2008 finally ready to get that college degree. Only now...college degrees are like assholes - everyone has one! Suddenly having a BA means very little. Even if I wanted one, I can't go to college for an entire year. What now? Work?
I tried to get a housekeeping job at the Hilton. Basically the job consisted of emptying trash, cleaning toilets, making beds, and other housekeeping duties. I applied for the job, sent my resume and waited. I got a response saying that I didn't meet the minimum qualifications for the job.
I used to be an ASSISTANT MANAGER at a restaurant...and now I can't even get a job scrubbing toilets? What has the world come to?
I think I know what's in store for me....
