They’re mostly people who don’t know me and make prejudgements based on things like the fact I didn’t graduate from some Ivy League school, snobbery like that. Then there were those people who told me “have fun flipping burgers at McDonald’s the rest of your life,” when I not only chose not to attend to university, but refused to take even the SAT. Here am I, at twenty-two, six years after graduating high school, and I’ve never worked a single fast food joint (although I don’t look down on people who do either), and I’ve done some interesting things, traveled thousands of miles, gained new insight and knowledge, and of course, made some mistakes along the way, but I have never regretted not attending university. It’s very interesting now, to have some of my peers who years ago mocked and scoffed at that choice, tell me how much they envy the way I live. The tables turn.
