‘You’ve got to find what you love,’ Jobs says
He’s so dreamy!

Hey, wow! I just read that, like, yesterday! Are you on the unschooling discussion list or did you find it elsewhere?
It’s excellent, by the way.
I found it on somebody’s blog. I don’t remember who – today was a day of following links around the internets, blog to blog to Steve Jobs commencement speech.
I plan to do what I love, and I’m going back to school. Does this blow your mind?
MY MIND IS BLOWN!
No. Not at all. But I am very happy for you!
There’s nothing wrong with school. (Well, with college. There’s plenty wrong with high school.) What’s wrong is thinking it’s the ONLY acceptable option. If it’s what you WANT to do, then I think it’s awesome.
May I say that I honestly think blaming high school is suprfluous: it fucks us up, sure, but the real groundwork is elementary school. That is when the foundation is laid.
I once knew a guy who blamed elementary school. You know what happened to him?

A confession: a few months ago me and Jamie splurged and bought the ultra-expensive Yearbook Collectors Edition of ‘Freaks and Geeks’. And it was worths it I tells ya! I’d do it again!
“What’s wrong is thinking it’s the ONLY acceptable option.”
Ha! You don’t fool me you hippy wierdo.
But seriously, I agree.
“There’s plenty wrong with high school.”
I think you’d hate UK schools even more. They demand greater specialisation at an earlier age. There was also plenty wrong with *my* High School. It was a prestigious school, and all they gave a shit about was high grades so they could move up on the rankings. At graduation they told us to leave school premises immediately, or we would be thrown off.
Anyway, as I was saying. My school didn’t even offer Philosophy, it was only a matter of pure chance that I chose to take a course on it in university, and so was even exposed to it. The UK system definitely needs to be revamped – how the fuck are 16 year olds supposed to know what they want to do with their life? It’s ludricrous.
That was super-cool.
I agree with Jess.
In this otherwise factual article about the NYPD being reminded that women may legally be topless, I was struck by this ridiculously sexist sentence: "One man even said he would encourage his wife to join them." HOW NICE OF HIM.
In 2010 a photographer sought out and photographed decaying Star Wars sets in Tunisia. In 2012, a group of fans traveled to one of the sets and fully restored it.
In news that is surprising to approximately nobody, roles for women are at 28% and declining, despite women making up more than half of movie-going audiences (a fact Hollywood vehemently denies despite actual studies).
This guide to recurring jokes on Arrested Development is the best thing on the internet.
