Clearly that look of contemplation is trying to figure out the correct way to spell "You're". Clearly, he failed miserably.
OMG thats soooooo kool brol!!!!
Because I have never seen someone spell anything wrong or use incorrect grammar in a tweet before.
Damn, I was really hoping for a "if you can't get into college go to Northwestern" post in honor of the game this weekend.
I kept trying to get it going against Harvard in basketball last year, didn't stick though
Meanwhile, NW will be doing one of their classic cheers:
"That's all right, that's OK
You'll all work for us someday."
You know, it does annoy me when people fail to make that differentiation, but let's not forget that sometimes people will craft words to fit the max character count on twitter....I know I have in the past.
Kind of a pointless rip on msu....you should at least mention 1 brawl involving a player to have a proper msu joke...
I think his error on Pete "Jent" is more offensive, but whatever.
do what the rest of America is doing right now. Contemplate whether dropping thousands and thousands on a degree of higher education is really the move right now when cost of such an education is increasing rapidly and the job market for graduates in free fall. Contemplate whether learning a trade and going into the black for a few years may make a little more sense when college graduates are stuck underneath boulders of debt with little more than a slight hope of finding a gig that is going to begin to crack that debt before reaching "retirement age." Consider whether kids being streamlined to college without really deciding for themselves may actually be hindering American ingenuity. Consider all of these things, and then also consider the difference between "your" and "you're."
Feel free to consider. The right choice is still college.
It all comes down to work ethic. Work hard and you'll be successful, college or not. Don't work hard, then don't be expected to be handed a job, college or not.
My UM degree and work ethic had me turning down job offers in a field that is very saturated. Yeah, I'm paying off a huge chunk of my paycheck in loans, but I'm also living very comfortable doing something I love.
That's another big difference. If you don't go to college you likely are going to end up doing something you dislike. Is that worth not having loans to pay?
He did mention "learning a trade" which is an education. He isn't suggesting going to work in a factory the rest of your life versus college. In that case college would win out hands down.
The correct reply was, "then go to State."
Unemployment is still significantly higher for workers without a college degree. Education is still a (relatively) safe bet.
Though I do agree with you that college is not for everyone.
I disagree. My wife and I both graduated from college a year and a half ago, my wife is employed at a very reputable company, I'm now on my second job (quit the first one to move to Cleveland when I got married), I was able to buy my wife a really nice engagement ring without going into debt for it, and we're on pace to be out from under our student loan debt (and totally debt free!) less than two years from now; and we both attended a private university where tuition was not cheap. As Tom from AA said, if you work hard enough, the jobs are there. And if you manage your money wisely, you can set yourself up to pay down debt quickly.
didn't get in to Michigan, did they?
I did. Did not get into M law school though. Damn LSAT score and underwhelming GPA.
I was raised in a household where both parents had masters-level education - college was not only the logical choice, it was the only one.
A trade is indeed an education unto itself, but consider also that many jobs in the trades are just not there in the same quantity that they once were, and the unemployment rate for people without a college education is pretty high. I live in a blue-collar neighborhood in the downriver communities of Detroit. I can guarantee you that unemployment on my street is probably about 25%, and that lack of a college diploma has a lot to do with it as well as the near-death experience of the auto industry in America.
Funny thing about me - I have two undergraduate degrees from the U, and an MBA on top of that, and to get myself into my current company, I had to take a union position in what is essentially a trades-style position, so I get what you're saying - nobody around me in that position had my education, but they are no less valuable to the company.
and end up doing something you love, it is worth the loans.
If you go to college and end up doing something you decided to take out huge loans in order to do before you had time to decide what you loved, it can come with regret, along with no ability to change mid-stream because of the debt.
Have I revealed a deep unsettled dissatisfaction yet.....?
This is why administrators at reputable universites have no business being on Twitter. Which, of course, is why MSU's AD is on Twitter.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Mark Hollis knows the proper use of "you're" and "your", but had to purposely misuse "your" in his last statement so the Sparty fanbase could understand what he was saying.
While we're being extremely picky (for no apparent reason), isn't the convention to list the home team second? So, shouldn't it be Michigan vs. Michigan State?
Anyone up for burning some couches? Anyone?
Sweet profile pick as well. Not surprised, the guys amazing. Thanks to him I have a picture of izzo and the situation just waiting to be used thus winter.
And when I say thus I mean this.
