    Hey guys,

    Sorry that this video is not exactly what I normally post. This topic has been weighing on my mind for the longest time now and I just really wanted to make a video about it and express my opinion on school, dropping out, etc. Thanks for bearing with me this week.

            Hey guys it's actually wrong that we don't solve for x while buying groceries eg I live in India so whenever we go to buy groceries the vendor tells us the price of 1 kg (convert to pounds for yourself) then if u don't want to be wasteful and not many people are eating it we buy a quarter kg or half kg so we have to find the price for it ourselves hence it's proved that we do solve for x while buying groceries we just don't recognize it

                  I think that it is never too late to go back to school.... It is never too late to learn new things..... Especially if you realize that you want to study other things instead of the ones you are studying right now...

                          I understand her point completely but I think she left out a very important detail. The school system has failed to teach millions of students very important life lessons such as tax, voting, etc. school instead teaches you specific academics you MAY use but leaves out very important life skills you WILL use. I do think school is important but I also do think that it puts a lot of pressure on students. Students should have time to heal from the stress of school, not go home, do homework, and go back to school the next day. It’s like tightening a string, or will snap if you pull it too hard.
                          Algebra 1 for example, is a class where after you have done so much that you are collapsing under stress you still must go home and do MORE work. I took some tests when I was in 6th grade and they were looked over and ever since I have been “certified gifted” with that comes the expectations to always have perfect grades, I can say that the stress this has put on me left me hating school, I prayed that nature would hit us with a blizzard just so that I didn’t have to go.
                          What I’m getting at is that school is certainly important but they go about it in a bad way.

                          Edit: this is not a hate comment. This is just a civil argument.

                                    You kids dropping out while other people claw their way to get a diploma. I myself have poured blood, sweat and a ton of tears just to graduate college. Never in my life did I think or had the option linger in my mind to quit school. Its just flat out stupid.

                                      When my English teacher wanted us to design our own university, my partner and I created one called “Adult Life Preparation University” and I think if there’s a thing many would join.

                                              very well said, young lady!
                                              school is essential to life, college is crucial to becoming a functional human being to contribute and improve the world we live in. STAY IN SCHOOL GUYS. The youtubers that say university is useless explains how retarded they are.

Sorry but Emma if u can leave ur squad for a bit and stay with Joana

                                                                        While yeah some people label simple normal day to day stress as mental illness and use that as an excuse to not get through with tasks, some people actually suffer with hindering symptoms of disorders often caused by school (depression, anxiety, etc) in a level that does affect their life and productivity - those levels are what constitute a disorder instead of just day to day normal emotions.
                                                                        So yeah life is not a walk in the park all the time, but, for some people simple things can lead them to full mental spirals that result in mental and physical struggles (my anxiety and depression make my body ache and shake and heart rate to change, sometimes keep me from sleeping properly as well as just eventual panic attacks).
                                                                        Some people may use this as an excuse, but some people are actually disabled and should be taken into consideration, because they can't be a functioning member of society if society only seeks certain types of people as optimal to be in it, making it harder for people like me to fit in.
                                                                        Aside from that little thing though, I really appreciate the video and I think it is very important. And even for people with actual depression, self deprecation jokes can make it so much worse so even if things are terrible one should never put their own mindset down.

                                                                        • Eden James

My entire childhood my mom was back in college throughout her 40s to get her degree and credential all while working and being a mom full time. She had to do night classes part time and what would have been a 5 year degree took 11 years!! She always instilled in me that even though I might not want to at the time, I should put my education first and foremost before settling down because, like her, I would eventually realize I want to go back. I'm 22 and just finished my B.A in Biology and have one thing off my plate that will help me throughout my life. Don't tell yourself you can't do it, YOU can! You got this!

                                                                                  • Peyton Wilson

                                                                                    I completely agree with you with the mental illness portion. I do suffer from anxiety, but I’ve been able to distinguish between good stress and bad stress. I know that studying stress and test stress etc are good stressors and the more I am put under stress and then come from it successful the better I’ll be able to handle the stress. On top of that, though, I do have stress from the fact that I have school, practice, work, five clubs, two honor societies, and I attend an academy which has its own work load on top of that as well as volunteer hour requirements. Sometimes all of that is just too much when I already have anxiety, and it causes breakdowns. I just have to take a step back and remember why I’m doing all of it, and see if there’s anything I would want to quit. The answer is always no, because I chose all of my activities because I’m interested in them and love participating. Sometimes things get hard and it’s important to remember why you do it

                                                                                        Okay, so I have a lot to say about the mental health stuff. So, I have bipolar 2 (so I'm basically always depressed), I have GAD and a panic disorder. I've been through really bad lengths of times with these, especially in school. Now, here are a few things- 1. If you tell yourself you're going to fail, then proceed to not try, you are creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. 2. At one point, I went through a period after an abusive relationship where I had agoraphobia and was terrified to leave the house, and I was struggling bad with my mental health. I did poorly in my classes, but I also had a real reason. 3. I developed testing anxiety. Why? Because I knew I probably didnt study enough, or I put on too much pressure for myself to focus during the test so I'd freak myself out and panic. How did I get rid of it? I studied enough that I felt like I could trust myself to do well. When you dont leave any room for questioning yourself, all of a sudden, the anxiety goes away. 5. You have to hold yourself responsible and not use your mental illness as an excuse, unless there are real extenuating circumstances.
                                                                                        Over the past 3 years I've been working on my bachelor's degree, I've gone through 2 hospitalizations, severe depression, a manic phase, agoraphobia, test anxiety, and an abusive relationship. At the end of this semester I graduate with it and then I'm off to grad school. College isnt for everyone, but dont let yourself be the reason you hold yourself back. High school on the other hand, get through that shit. Or get a GED. There are so many schooling options now, there's hardly any excuses.
                                                                                        But also remember- you got this. You can do it.
