    I Don't Get Why Everyone Is Pressured To Be Well-educated!

    I've been an all A+ student my whole life. Now I'm sick of it. Haven't even finished last year of school yet. I just don't get why everyone pushes me to be the most amazing person in the world - with the best high flying job. I just want to be a regular girl. Sucks!

    I Have a College Education,...

    I have a college education, which does not mean I am educated, which has educated me so I could and can compete in the world today.  In college my major was History, which I think gives me a better propective on what is happening in the world.
