A lot of people will tell you that you should follow the beaten path because that is what has brought us to civilization. I’m here to remind you that this isn’t so true. We have achieved our right on this earth as intelligent beings through ingenuity and and creativity. The people who forged the way for economic and technological advances did so spontaneously, and perhaps regardless, of whether they were in accord with the system. So the next time you consider education, remember that it is yours to behold and discover–not something that can be wrapped up in a box with a pretty bow. Remember that no matter what path you take, it is ultimately you who will decide the outcome. I know exactly what I’m supposed to be doing, but I choose not to follow it. I enjoy finding new solutions to age old problems.
