Hey everyone! If you’ve been following my recent posts, you might notice how I’ve been much into photography lately… and more active in the blogosphere as well! However, on the other hand, I’ve also started to vlog again, posting videos more regularly – every Friday – and since I’m currently in that stage between high school and university, I’d like to cover this very subject as a video project to keep me going.
I already know what university I’m going to attend in July – soon! – and my place is already booked and all so I guess that I will soon be doing ‘packing’ videos and such stuff, but I’d also like to do Q&A videos.
And I’d like the questions to come from you guys.
As me anything in the comments below, everything you want to know about going to university, especially if you’re a student applying yourself this year. Even if you’re not a student, just tell me whatever information you would like to know about this high school to university process.
I’ll try my best to answer all of you.
Meanwhile here’s my latest video:
Please fill the comment box below!!! 🙂

There’s nothing much in my purse because my school is close to home… I have my own car, and school’s just 13 to 15 minutes away. I do bring some energy snacks, and water bottle, always.
Oh you’re lucky it’s close! Interesting 🙂 Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
What r u going to study? R u going to live in a dorm?
Thanks for the questions 🙂 Will answer them either in a ‘University’ blog post or video next week!
I don’t know why but I’m going to be difficult. See if any of these inspire you to address:
When did college stop being a place one goes to round out one’s knowledge and start pretending to be a place of job training?
Why do people go to college when they don’t know what they want to major in, let alone what they want to be when they grow up? The most common purpose I get from people is, “I just didn’t want to go to work right out of high school.”
How does one decide what they want to be when they grow up? Oddly some people ‘just know’ while most live to an old age never really knowing what this position in life that perfectly defines them is.
How does one find a job after graduating college? I came from a factory worker household. My mother and father had no clue where one would go to get a job that pays well and leads to fulfillment and being rich. In high school this was never addressed. While I did go to college and enjoyed it thoroughly, at no point did I find out how to get a good job nor what the source of good jobs are. How does one find out exactly where good paying meaningful work is. Most people simply don’t know where such jobs are, let alone how to get one.
How are you paying for college? That’s an easy one. I worked for General Motors and took leaves of absence every other year while living in my parent’s basement. Took six years but I never took out a student loan. I earned a BS degree with a double major and a minor while pursuing my interests. Then I went back to my factory job, finished my 30 years, and retired. What is your approach to paying for it all?
I read an interesting quote yesterday what I will paraphrase, “It doesn’t matter where you go to college unless it is Harvard or Yale, because at those schools they open doors for each other forevermore.”
Why isn’t college socialized in the same way that K-12 is with the public school system?
That’s enough. I feel like I’m being cruel in asking impossible to answer questions. But they are good questions!
Good luck in college. I sense you will do well there and afterwards.
Wow nice! Great thoughtful questions! I’m definitely going to do more than videos then, blog posts as well! Next week 🙂
