I was one of those, "i'll take a year off" type of dudes. I almost went crazy just working and shit, felt like what I was doing had no substance. So I applied for school to get that photo degree. Even if it's just GenEd Classes at a CC for now, I'd advise you to stay in school, don't waste time with strictly work atm. That quick money is gone fast, but that knowledge can go a long ass way.
Exactly. Just go to school and give up four years of your life for something worthwhile. I'm really in shock hearing all these people talk about how useless college is towards your life. It's true that jobs don't come and go based upon the strength of your degree, but the discipline, responsibility, education, mental training you put yourself through for college will reward you much more than you can imagine in the long run. And the first few semesters in college are to figure out what you want to major in for your Bachelor's degree. Everyone picks their major (and minors) halfway through their second year. If you're not going to college for this very reason, then you are making a big mistake. The first year is for you to explore and learn about the ACTUAL physical environment of being a college student and numerous courses that depict your future 'wants' and job applications. You can't just sit at home wandering on the internet to fulfill your desires when it comes to your future. You have to physically be there to supply that want.
I'm speaking for myself, but college is actually a pretty fucking fun experience.
And that video is just an anti-intellectual propaganda. Those people are trying to make you stay away from school. And if you feel that you are influenced by these people, I can only pity for your loss.
