School, a learning institution? Well I personally learn better through a project based low pressure based environment so I would argue that school is a prison for me. From personal experience I can say after a university course, I almost always have less interest in the subject than if I were to explore it on my own. I think this is mostly due to pace and topic not matching my interest. Whatever my interests are they also don’t extend for 4 months and mix with 5 other subjects so I don’t think university is for me. However, this does not mean I’m going to quit uni however attractive. The fact is, most high value employers still have a strong bias for those with degrees. In addition, school is mostly a utility to socialize and network. The countless amount of interesting people I have meet throughout have been worth it for me. Although this does not lessen the comparisons to jail, it surely isn’t the worst. In conclusion, I find uni soul crushing to my curiosity and hope it will be over soon (hopefully only 1 year left).
