AAAAGGGGHHH!!!!! I have grown up with the idea of going to college, get an "education", and live my life as everybody else does. Recently I have been having second thoughts on going to college for a full four year term. I have this urge to kick my city-life goodbye, buy 150-250 acres and call it home and my Organic Farm. I'll have sheep, goats, chickens (Of Course ), cows, llamas, turkeys, organic wheat, organic corn, organic berries (all types), emus, ostrich, dogs (to help me out), organic tomatoes, organic apples, organic peaches, organic __________(enter food type here), and bees. I'll weld, blacksmith, lumber up trees, dig pounds (with a bobcat), build buildings, on my farm, and if I have time later, rest. *End Rant* About a year ago I watched Food Inc. and King Korn and started researching how bad the SAD (Standard American Diet) really is. I became an convert to the Organic movement. I have since then, joined BYC, got chickens, planted organic tomatoes in my garden, started to teach myself on how to weld, looking into how to blacksmith, read articles on the "Art of Manliness" on how to be a traditional firm Man (Love the site as much as BYC), studied Constitutional Law (One course), studying eastern and western medicine, running my own lawn and landscaping business, and thinking up on new organic products that I can make and sell to the public to help rid us of High-Fructose Corn Syrup. I'm pretty busy! I have been learning so much about society, myself, my family that I want to run my own Organic Farm Business. (I have the stamina for it) However, I do see that I need to get an education to support my future family and keep myself from being a leech to society but I feel (and afraid) that if I go to College (Long Term). I'll get burned out and be extremely pressured by co-students and teachers to "put away" my "silly" ideas of what I love to do. I do value college a lot however I am trying to decide whether or not it is necessary to go to a place that will teach me how to do things according to societies (Factory Farming) standards. (Which I DO NOT want) I would like your input, I know this is a lot, maybe a little unrealistic and not very organized how I typed up my "rant", but I'm not going to make this decision till little while yet but I do need to start thinking on "how I can do this" and "should I do this. Ugh, so much to think about, so little time.
