im sorry if this is a little too personal, but what made you choose not to pursue college and start working?do you think somebodys level of education correlates to how intelligent you perceive them usually?
I don’t think that a traditional education is necessary for everyone. While I did very well in school growing up and probably would have done well in advanced education, I knew it wasn’t for me. Most of my friends are 5+ years older than me and I only saw people not using their degrees and being thousands of dollars in debt.
I think society focuses too much on this process that we have accepted as “what’s acceptable” and “normal” and I chose to defer from that. If I had gone to school after high school, I know I would not be where I am today and I am so proud of myself for what I’ve accomplished and the person I’ve become.
I don’t base peoples intelligence on their education level. I base it on my interactions with them.
