Is it mandatory to go to college nowadays? It sometimes looks like it is. I caught myself thinking what my life would have been like if I chose not to attend college. When I began thinking, I didn’t know where to start. Is the matrix/system that strong enough to force you to do something it wants you to do?
Force is probably a strong word, but then again it isn’t. When I say ‘force’ in regards to the system, my meaning of force is how societal pressures implicitly push us to do what they want us to do. “They” can be anyone who imposes their conflicting ideas on you.
I was thinking like this today because I was dreading the thought of going to class. I don’t know if the feeling came to me naturally because I was annoyed or is it the fact that deep down inside – I don’t want to be here?
Then the question came to me, “If I don’t want to be here, then what should I do?” It seems like society created a college-or-die atmosphere.
