    I'm not going to college

    until I know what I want to do for a career. I'm not going to college because my parents want me to or to get a well paying job I don't like or to follow suit. I'm going to college when I know what I want. Otherwise, there is no point.

    Education is freedom.

    To truly be free you need to know how to live your life in a way probably already lived by others. You need to read books and go to classes, lectures, on how people have lived in the past. Freedom is education. If you are free you must pursue education with the same vigour as...
