Text post [Education – Tumblr Post]

thoodleoo:

honestly fuck people who are like “lol what are you gonna do with that major” when someone says that they’re going to study something that doesn’t typically lead to a high-paying career or to globally-useful breakthroughs. like not only is that incredibly rude and disrespectful, but can we please not disvalue doing something for yourself because you enjoy it? sure maybe studying art or literature might not cure cancer or show how the universe works but it makes people happy, and it may not pay well but not everything is about making money. please just get rid of the idea that a major is only valid or useful if it leads to a well-paying job or brings measurable benefits to a large number of people.

This so much.
