Don’t Go To College

Originally posted on How Do I Grown Up:
My senior year of high school, I was burned out, I was exhausted, I’d busted my butt in extracurriculars, carried an active social life and maintain pretty good marks for 13 years. I was ready for a break; college didn’t look all that appetizing. But my parents, my friends, and my teachers told me to just go to college. Go and experience. Go and learn. Go and be free. So I did. At the time there weren’t other options, or at least none that I knew about. I could go to college or I could live with my parents and work in town. All the great wise men told me that college would get me a career, it was the only thing that would. So I went. And I experienced. And I think I learned, though probably not what was on the syllabus.

Unlocking the Secrets Behind Empathy

Weird And Wonderful would love to explore the secrets of Empathy. I feel this is an ultimately important experience to write about, particularly when empathy is such a challenge for most individuals. This lead me to discover why and what part of the brain unlocks Empathy. The most amazing thing about empathy is being able to see the other person’s point of view. Being able to challenge the mind and feel those feelings – having the ability to come out with a reasonable and sound judgement or solution to the problem the other person is having. Are we trained as humans to be empathetic? I feel we are. It is not an easy emotion to have. The ones who are overly Empathetic can find it hard to actually be able to detach themselves from situations – especially when they have unleashed that part of their mind. I feel we can help one another out with this but I do think it is not a gift. I would love to…
