Prince Ea, a well known YouTuber, Philanthropist, and spoken word artist recently released a video entitled: "Every teenager NEEDS to hear this," in which, he beautifully depicts the story of a teenager struggling to be true to himself, ultimately becoming unhappy, because he was too concerned with fitting into the crowd.
University sucks and here’s why!
After finally completing your soon-to-be best selling novel which has taken years to craft and endless nights grinding out the editing process, you have to think of what to do next.
As I’m sat here in my University Library, I have arrived at a familiar place; what can I do to procrastinate now? I’ve seemingly exhausted every possible option to scroll through every social media and practice my awful drawing techniques to messaging people I haven’t spoken to in ages and watching videos on ‘How to earn money doing nothing.’ There is nothing more left to do. So, as I sit here, with my mind wandering through the decrepit forest that is my mind, I watch. I sit and watch all the people around me thinking about what they are doing. An example: there is a girl next to me sorting through her Spotify playlist, and every time her friend looks over quickly changes back to a document that some probably known psychologist wrote that she hasn’t even read.
“Confidence is only a layer of protection built up by fragments of insecurities glued together by the horrors of what’s real in the mind.” – E.T.D Casterton
Going to university can be tough. For once, there is no mother or father to hold your hand and guide you through this new adventure.
