Is your college degree worthless?
Thank you so much! that really helped me! I have question! I originally wanted to start with a community college before transferring. But when I ask around, people keep telling me about the "college experience" that I am going to miss. In your opinion, is the college experience that one has worth the debt?

Wow, thank you so much for taking your time to give such a thoughtful answer! You gave me a whole new perspective on things! And I have to say, I love the way you write! It just flows, I wanted your answer to be longer! Thank you so much!

Are you living before you die? Are you living off your passion?
Thank you Colleen! I really do try. I am always asking myself the big questions in life. That's all I'm about. I feel as though if we all participated in the same conversation, then the world would be a much better place. But unfortunately, the majority of people do not think about such things. Which is why I want to be a talk show host. I can relate to different people. Through that, I hope, I will get the world, if not, then just the U.S to get involved with what happens at Ted.

I understand what you said with perfect clarity! While reading that though, it reminded me of a woman I talked to a while ago. She was around her 50s. While in the conversation, I noticed that every time I gave her a compliment, she became uncomfortable and quickly moved on to another topic. I noticed it and pointed that out to her. By then she broke down, and talked about how she spends her whole life trying to be the absolute best person she can be, but every time she does one negative thing, it's all people remember. Then she went on to tell me about all the regrets she has. It was very clear that this woman lived in the past. And will continue to do so for a very long time. Very sad, just thought I would because that's what I thought when I read that! :)
