If you're currently crushed under the weight of student debt, then Billy Wilson is going to become the hero you so desperately need (although no, he can't pay off your student debt. You're screwed there.).
What is it about a good "mic drop" story that's so universally loved?
The moment is made even more poignant when the person saying "peace out" has clearly earned the right to do so.
One freshman at Kansas State University did just that.
Wilson had a perfect 4.0 average after one semester at Kansas State University and then promptly dropped out with a pretty clear message — F*ck college.
via: FacebookCalling it "one of the best choices I've ever made," he took to Facebook to launch a manifesto of sorts that made some pretty strong points about why college is a waste of money and time. On the other hand, most jobs require a degree and you don't really want a doctor sticking things in your body if they only stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
At any rate, it went viral with more than 10,700 shares and 7,500 comments from people on both side of the educational fence.
There were those who could totally relate and are probably flipping the bird to their university as we speak.
And those on the other side of the argument.
Plus, they offered up some advice.
In the end, you have to do what works for you. College is insanely expensive and costs are rising every year, but the requirements for jobs that let you make a living often demand it. What are your thoughts on this?
