So this past October, I went to a party and this boy came up to talk to me. He was decently attractive, so I did not refuse his advances. Yes, it was fairly creepy when he put his arm around me on the couch, and I’m almost 100% sure the drink he handed me had a roofie in it, but whatever I’m in college - I’ve built a tolerance. He was talking to me and I decided to pay attention, so I started listening to the words he was saying rather than just looking around the room and texting.
It was at this point I realized he was talking to me about his Master’s degree. In history.
Now I get that back in the day, getting a Master’s was super exciting. But guess what, now its not. People go get their Master’s just for fun because they like college, or because they can’t get a real job. Newsflash bud, I don’t give a shit about your Master’s degree. Especially if it’s in HISTORY, the most boring subject on the face of the earth. Why don’t you go learn something useful, like how to build a chair or fix my computer (it’s doing this thing again) or solve the economic crisis or something? History has never taught us anything. Everyone knows that.
