It’s homecoming weekend for Western, and my second year as an alumna. Although this time of year is usually associated with partying, I can say the closest thing I’ve done to that is go out for dinner during that weekend. Tonight, I’m staying in and watching Harry Potter movies with my boyfriend.
I’m not even wearing a purple shirt right now.
Relax, I’m wearing a sweater with the old logo, and a tank top representing a wonderful program called MIT (Media, Information, and Technoculture). That was my major in university, along with writing and film courses on top of it.
I’ve seen a lot of posts saying education doesn’t teach you about life, and I’ve heard many comments saying Liberal Arts degrees don’t get you anywhere.
I’m here to tell you, that’s not necessarily true. Most of my time in university was spent on my work, and I’ve discovered a lot of lessons that apply outside of the classroom and I’d say are a lot of skills you need post-school.
