* cheers for the frontpage! i forgot how satisfying it feels :)

Based on an actual conversation with my job network. The moral of the story is that you can teach yourself anything if you're passionate about it, you don't NEED a college degree to be succesful in life. You should do what you love right now, regardless of what situation you're in. We live in a society that is too focused on money rather than doing the things they enjoy the most. Hopefully people can relate to this in some way.

Think about how many professional animating studios there are, with top notch quality of animation. Then think about how many people are studying and competing for those places. Schools give unrealistic hope to people. Thanks for the complements!

I agree. Not so much as what most reviewers seem to relate to, school or what to do for a living, but that what truly matters is to do what you enjoy doing. If you happen do land a job you enjoy, be it gained from learning the trade, learning on the go, or from someone else... Or heck, even being a jack of all trades... Life is, no matter how you look at it, something most people totally forget to enjoy. My son is hitting 9 and no matter how awesome my job is or isn't at times... He's the best thing that's happened to me, right after my wife :D Cherish the time you have with your loved ones... I hope I got the message right. One thing you have to learn yourself from life is... How to enjoy yourself... Seems like no school teaches you that...

I know most of you may not be able to understand this but this is a fundalmental workings of the reason of why we do what we do. One doesn't need to know this but it help one understand life a little better. IF YOU DO NOT CARE, ONE MAY SIMPLY SKIP TO THE 2ND TO LAST AND LAST PARAGRAPH.

I do agree with you, we are free to do whatever we want but there are consequences to our actions. Remember that a "need" correspond to a "want" meaning that one must first want something in order to need, what ever is essential, in order to get that want. Our first "want" is the meaning our our existence. Which could be anything from wanting happiness, living for God, living for others, or simply wishing to be and experience our existence (or more)(another note, one does not "need" to exist, they want to, because if one simply has no reason for life he/she can commit suicide and end their existence (PEOPLE CAN END THEMSELVES AND DIE, PEOPLE DO NOT NEED TO EXIST) and this happens every day) . We can only exist in the human form and we do that by living (we can't transmit our conscious into a chip or something of that nature). So, In order to be happy (I'll take a simple one) we must first exist. In order to exist we must live. In order to live we must obtain nutrients. In order to do that one must gather it through nature or through the constructs of society. Now, we have choice of how to get our happiness because one does not "need" society in order to be happy, most of us just feel that it is an easier path in order to achieve happiness. In order OUR society to exist (I'm assuming an republic form or government with capitalism) people need to work.There are many societies out there and if one human does not feel he/she can achieve their goals or want they can move to another OR simply leave and become a hermit. No one forces people to live in society, people force themselves to live in society (unless it is more of a communist, then they force people to live a certain way). Continuing, in order to get our food we need money (in society ). In order to get money, we need jobs (usually).

now here comes your dilemma and what your trying to say. One, it depends on one's definition of success (For example, an atheist may think that there is no "True"success because eventually one will die, its the great equalizer, and and their children will die and the human race (or whatever we evolve into) will die. No human race means the death of our history and the death of all our accomplishments. There is no point of anything, we all live for a moment (as drake says, "Y.O.l.O") to an atheist. If we manage to survive for a LONG LONG time, what will we do? escape the universe and create another one? we are destined to die, we are mortal.)

Second, In our society we believe that more money equals into an easier life but that doesn't mean a happier life. USUALLY, the more time spent on college gives us a high paying jobs but this is not a one to one function. USUALLY more schooling gives one more credentials and opens more options for a person.The reason that schooling exists is to prove to one's employers that one can do his/her job. One test may not be enough to prove one knows all they need to know. People believe in the system and trust it. without it, there may be more frauds(and lol there still are conmen).

But what you've said is 100% right, one does not need college, one has just convinced himself/herself that they need it in order to be happy.
-Thank you for reading.

That was a long winded review. I read it though. It's true that we live in a society that has to work in order to survive, but I think it's time we all started "working" in the areas we enjoy the most instead. Put the right people in the right places. Everyone has something they love to do, whether they consciously know it or not. We live in a very strange world, a world full of free, natural beauty, but we're all like rats in a cage, paying to live in a rat race. You are who you are, you just gotta make the most of what you're given but more often I see people complaining every day how their jobs suck, how they got exams due and how much they don't want to do them. I just don't get why people even bother when they hate it so much. It's not a difficult thing to grasp, just do what you enjoy. Cheers for the review, even though it was just a little off topic haha..

This sounds exactly like my brother, almost verbatim. He'll never get a real job because he'll only work if someone allows him to do his art his way. I asked him why then he shouldn't expect someone to pay him to paint the interior of his own bedroom, too, but he just rolled his eyes in a dismissal of arrogant entitlement.

Cold and cynical, most people who take this approach tend to ramble and lose the audience's interest in a heap of self indulgence. You make a point though.

Very colorful.
