He must be feeling rather embarrassed.

Yoga is no joke. I thought it was all relaxation techniques and I got my butt handed to me. Actually I couldn't reach it.

College education... Necessary or not?

It wasn't necessary for me. I still wish I had one though. I have thought about taking a few credits per year at a community college just so one day I can cross "higher education" of my apostate bingo card.

You are 19 right? Are you asking for you?

Depends on they type of person you are. People can do good work and make good money without one. And some people who go to college don't end up using that education.


Education in any form probably isn't wasted. But with the cost - I would be very sure of what I wanted to do before just blindly going to college.

Yeah, that's more or less what I was thinking about doing too.

I've graduated the teens I'm 20 now.
I would say that I'm doing well for myself and I have a career already laid out; so I don't view college as necessary. That said, I'd really like to be able to publish writings someday. It just seems like college is such a huge expense... and at the end of it, I'm not gonna be making any more than I am now.

Highly depends on what you want to do as a profession.




College degree in Underwater Basket Weaving probably won't do you much good, so why spend the money on it? The unfortunately reality is some professions won't even give you the time of day without a degree in something. If you have a career in mind that you can get into without it, then why bother?

I am already in my career of choice
It's just what I mentioned before, I don't want it to hold me back at some point in the future.

have you already started college and are thinking about quitting or have you been working and thinking about going and getting an education? Community college is super cheap. It's about $5500 a year where I live and it will save you up to $2500 off your federal taxes.

I vote you go even if that means a reduced load because you work full time.
