Weapon X

School

Recommended Posts

I went from gifted program student at the top of his class to a drop out to a tradesman to what i'm doing now full-time.

 

i want to do more. Science, economics, something. however, i doubt i ever will, as that shit is expensive and time consuming. not to mention the beats i would receive throughout my childhood whenever i brought home anything 99% or less, as well as the constant tutoring while kids with lesser grades played baseball have given me deep seeded resentment towards education.

 

fuck, i don't know, fuck it all. just drop some thoughts about an old fuck going back to school, or not. anyone got a link for a counterfeit diploma? i'm gonna go smash a mirror.

Only if you consider a question a statement.

I'm in school with plenty of old dudes at a big university. One i know just graduated this year with a pretty dope job at an advertisement agency. It would be worth it, but maybe try a community college to save you some money while you test the waters.

that's encouraging, but i would only go to a university. encouraging, or maybe depressing because i'm not him, and i'd probably have to live on the streets if i were to go.

I don't know how old you are, but if it's over 23 you can get massive assloads of grant money from state and federal. If you go to a state university they'll basically pay for everything... If you want to go to one in a different state, go move there for a year or whatever it takes to get residency. The amount of money you can get is based on your previous year's reported income, higher than 10,000 and they start expecting you to pay for part of it. If you end up needing to take out loans, the federal subsidized loans don't collect interest / and you don't have to pay on them until you're out of school, and the interest rates are really low.

 

I basically get enough money to pay all my rent / utilities and eat decently for the year, plus pay tuition and buy books. I usually get a part time job and try to make under their cutoff just to have money for toys, although when I go back this time it will be as a full time student.

 

Choose your degree wisely... an economics degree isn't worth two shits from most schools, but it can be turned into other things at the graduate level (my sister's about to graduate with an International Business Law degree and is already hired to a firm for $180,000 a year, she did Econ and a couple other things for the bachelors). Science degrees can provide nicely paying jobs depending on the field as long as you're up for all the math... and can stand being in classes with clueless 18 year olds for the first year or two.

I also recommend that if you're seriously thinking about this, figure out the schools you're going to apply at and go to http://www.fafsa.gov and fill out the 2009-2010 application with the codes of the schools you're applying at right now. The earlier you apply for it the more grant money you can get.

school sucks. yeah, we all know that, but in a society whee bachelors degrees are a dime a dozen, and masters are more common place, education is a good idea. i went to school w/ peeps who were 4 years younger than me graduating at the same time, to dudes who were 15+ years older than me w/ a family and mortgage - work full time, be dad at home, and go to school full time.

 

if ur stuck in a dead end job that blows, go get ur learn on... certs, licenses, degrees, etc.

 

u stuck doing manual labor? u want to flex ur mind? go into engineering.. it pays... well.

and don't bother doing some bullshit like psych or marketing... it's useless unless you plan to get a phd and what not

Most definitely educate yourself as much as you wish to. If it helps you to feel better, I remember seeing a news story about some 90-something-year-old who went and got herself a diploma and seriously, how long does she have to use that knowledge for? If you have to go to community college and then transfer. Sometimes even better is the education you get yourself, like find a topic you're really interested in and then hit the book store, Amazon, whatever. I just finished a degree and have no time or $$$ for more school right now but am studying Chinese language and culture on my own time.

You should rub it in their faces.

here in boston the art institute is basically the same as mass art except like 3 times the price, not worth it

 

goin to school for art right now isn't a good idea anyways, there's no market for it
