  1. This is my life. I’ve been a recovering successful student for 11 years now, and it’s been impossibly awkward the entire time. There needs to be a support group, especially for those who don’t simply wander into a steady career position or long-term relationship.

  2. I find that this doesn’t at all reflect my experience with New Zealand education (that my son is going through). Nor my own from the USA…though, I can imagine my own experience may not have been standard. I wonder if this video is from a UK perspective?

  3. So true, thank goodness for the internet; school today is so outdated that you are better off teaching yourself!
