Hello, Many of you are anxious, and desperate to go to univeristy, and indeed so. But to tell you the truth, the best degree in life is someone who makes it to the top ie a millionaire, and for that you don't need a university degree.

food for thought

regards
You don't need to be a millionaire to 'make it to the top'.

Granted a higher education is not everything, however neither is wealth.

but studying something you love, are passionate about and instills you with a sense of fulfillment IS everything...the quest for knowledge, for developing personality and opinions, for making yourself the best person you can be is far more fulfilling than having all the money in the world.

PS, also, it is a well known fact that people with university degrees, in general, earn far more money than those who dont. Food for thought.

PPS also, in response to the whole gayboy thing, at least he has enough confidence to be happy with who and what he is, and doesn't feel the need to put others down (a univeral sign of poor self esteem). Perhaps a degree wouldn't go amiss on a few narrow minded people?!

No living life to it's fullest every day and doing what is important to you, enjoying and experiencing life that is what is important, how you go about that is each individual's choice. While one person may think education is everthing another may not. There are other ways of becoming the best person you can be.

Personally, i think that education is something which ENABLES people to experience life to the fullest...the more you know, the more you can enjoy things. That's not to say it has to be a formal university education, but the quest for knowledge is something which can be undergone regardless of academic capabilities. Observation, questions, experience; these are all forms of education and contribute to making an idividual as well-informed as possible. Of course people who aren't interested in higher education aren't by any means lesser people, i was merely commenting on the fact that money and being at the top in general aren't what gives life purpose, it's the JOURNEY to wherever you define as "the top" which counts.
