    I earned my bachelor's degree in psychology

    last year. Studying psychology has taught me a great deal about myself, because I suffer from mental illness. Mental illness is something I understand and can relate to.

    No, it doesn't mean I am intelligent!

    LOL But yes I did graduate from a Big 10 conference University, back when we wrote on stone tablets. LOL I have to admit, I did not take advantage of it enough, I was just expected to go to college, though I was the first in my family to get a college degree, it was just what I...

    I started college at age 17

    after completing high school in three years. I was uncertain as for a major at that time. I took all of my basic courses without a major established. I took many social science classes and fell in love with a behavioral sciences major. I graduated with a BS from a Big Ten...

    For someone who barely squeaked through high

    school, I am surprised I have a college degree. I am proud to say that I have an Associates of Arts degree in Paralegal Studies; unfortunately, it is not worth the paper it is printed on. The college I attended went bankrupt a couple of years ago.

    Nothing, other than a shitload of student loan debt and worthless piece of paper that I can't even be bothered to buy a frame for. Unless you're a doctor or a theoretical physicist, college degrees really don't mean a whole hell of a lot in this society. Sorry...rant over.
