"WAIT! DON'T RUN AWAY JUST YET!!!"
Hello! Welcome to MY DOMAIN! Many people may think that this is just a "me against the world" type of blog, and I just wanna get some things clarified right about....NOW. When I first set out to make a blog, I was thinking of the challenges I am most faced with on a day to day basis; that being my feeling of noone understanding me, and vice versa. I am sure there are some people who thinks the way I do..I just have yet to meet too many/any of them for that matter. I have always felt like an outcast, and have always been treated like one because of the way I may think, say or do; but as I got older, I had already adapted to being called weird, unique and all of thee above(nothing phases me now). But not only have I sprung back up with a complete sense of security, now I am bringing my curiousities of the wOrlD with me(everyone has their own issues, but it is up to acknowledge and re-adjust them)! I just wanna understand certain things about the people that resides on planet earth. Things like ..."why are some of y'all SO LOUD on the public buses," for instance....??? LOL! But...NO...THIS IS NOT A 'ME AGAINST THE WORLD' TYPE OF THING! I JUST REALLY REALLY REALLY WOULD LIKE TO GET TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE PEOPLE THAT ARE OCCUPYING SPACE ON THE SAME PLANET AS I AM. I AM VERY INTRIGUED BY THE HUMAN MIND!!! HOPEFULLY, THIS HAS HELPED YOU UNDERSTAND WHERE I AM COMING FROM A LITTLE BIT MORE..IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW ALREADY. AND HOPEFULLY, I CAN START UNDERSTANDING WHERE YOU GUYS ARE COMING FROM(BECAUSE I AM PROBABLY TALKING ABOUT SOME OF YOU WHO ARE READING THIS RIGHT NOW..LOL!!!) SO, THIS IS MY CHALLENGE TO THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE!!! I just ask that YOU GIVE your HONEST FEEDBACK on the things I write about. Who knows? Maybe I'll develop a string of optimism. Maybe I'll broaden my horizons(my mind)...with the way I think. YES ...that'd be GREAT!! TAKE CARE =D ;P

No one ever said you can not be a professional, who does not practice the profession. Be the difference, that don't make a difference. . . .I say. What does that mean? . . . It means the only difference between you and I, is that you're certified (that's just an example). YES; it is thee never-ending, controversial topic of college education vs. self-creators! While the question, "what are you doing after high school," may raise some eyebrows, it may also have very little effect on others. To some, college may be their only option. To others, they are better off without it; whatever their reason maybe. Often times, students graduate high school, and go off to college, because it's the 'American' thing to do. You know what I am talking about! Dead-end jobs (if you're lucky enough to have one); somewhat of a social life; and then you have your interests, skills &/ talents. . .what else are you going to do? Ahhh...you got it...you're gonna go to college! Then you have the no-sayers. They are the ones who have the big supportive, most likely well-educated families, with the vicarious parents who demands that they go and has everything covered for the child; down to choosing their careers for them. Finally, you have the generation-breakers. They are either the first, or one of few, to go to college in their family; and they are just dying to make the difference. But; how many of these students, actually go to college, simply for the love of it?! How many of them DO NOT go out of obligation, and for reasons of too much power having been granted to nay-sayers (people who judge you for not having a degree)? On the contrary, you have those who would prefer not to go for multiple reasons, such as: they don't want to be 4+ years away from making real money; they can achieve their goals without it; they are convinced that the price tag on a college education, should be a sin(not to mention, they can not afford it); etcetera. So . . .what is the ULTIMATE DIFFERENCE? Is there an ultimate difference? What is YOUR take on the subject matter? Talk to me!
