this was fascinating to read and so well written. thank you for showing us a little piece of how your mind works. elleway seems like an amazing person and i hope she keeps going and lives how she wants to. goddamnit mattie I want Elleway to succeed. Reading this article, I saw so many of those behaviors in people I know and even myself. It was actually a little alarming (like damn he stalking me) reading what me and my siblings had kind of established as facts of life as symptoms of a greater issue. It’s also scary.I Survived another meeting that should have been an email T-Shirt I’m leaving for college in 3 weeks. Can I maintain it all without the same support system I had in HS?

I think you should be cognizant of how things are going. And maybe I should go add a fourth option of utilizing your future college’s free mental health resources as much as possible. I just worry that’s a lot of extra steps that might not get done. I briefly mention the hyper-efficient part of ADHD. I joke that efficient is lazy’s older, more successful brother. It’s a horrible irony the number of ADHD-pitfalls one must navigate while untreated to then get treated in the first place. It sucks. Elleway’s story confuses me.I Survived another meeting that should have been an email T-Shirt She already has years of experience in digital marketing and a job. Why does she even need to go to college? Like if I had 3 years of high-level experience in anything and had a decent job, personally, I would just commit to that. The idea of focusing entirely on career development outside of HS and then wanting to go to college even though you already have a job seems counterintuitive to me.

You’re also chatting with a (successful!) business owner with an English BA. I agree that often times degrees are just pieces of paper. I have had conversations with “doing it already” students like Elleway. I note that they don’t actually need college. All of them reply that they know that. But most want to go to college because it’s fun/all their friends are. And also those students know they need degrees to end up specifically where they want to be. Could I be I Survived another meeting that should have been an email T-Shirt I am without my Tulane degree? Probably. But I would also have to hide that fact from parents. Even with a BA I have to be creative and play up my content marketing background as my “real” credentials. The vast majority of other successful IECs promote the hell out of their Ivy degrees and/or having worked in elite admissions offices. They do that because it works.
