I’ve Learned My Business by Myself

He fell to pondering for a while, folding his arms before his chest. A couple of pensive lines were appearing on his forehead. And then he began his obloquy, “You know, Shogo, I’ve been thinking why I went to the university. I can’t complain anything because I had a good time there; however, I can’t help thinking that if I’d started my own business eight years ago instead of attending the university, how big my business would’ve become right now. I’m telling you this, since I don’t apply any of university educations to my business. I’ve learned my business by myself. I didn’t want to work for anyone, but work for solely myself, so I’ve started studying how to build a house. I’ve educated myself as you did, Shogo. I’ve felt that I completely wasted my time and money on the university. Do you know why I went to the university? Because everybody told me that I had to go to university, such as my parents, my friends, my relatives and so on and so forth. But what for? I didn’t understand anything. I really hate this idiotic society system, for everyone thinks that we have to go to university in order to have successful life. It’s a sheer misapprehension, you know. I oppose every devise, that society has contrived to manipulate us. Everyone thinks what other people think of them. Everyone thinks graduating university is something that one must be proud of. Shogo, you know, the majority of people go to university simply for appearance’s sake. Everyone thinks that graduating university is a big achievement in their lives. Everyone thinks in this delusional fashion because of misconstrued society systems. Any society always asks us first if we graduate university or not. It’s so ridiculous to me. Think about it in this way, for instance, if one wants to be a gardener, does he need a university degree to be a gardener? – Absolutely not; if he wants to be a painter, does he need a university degree to be a painter? – Absolutely not; if he wants to be a writer, does he need a university degree to be a writer? Absolutely not; if he wants to be a fisherman, does he need a university degree to be a fisherman? – Absolutely not; if he wants to be a baker, does he need a university degree to be a baker? – Absolutely not; if he wants to be a matador, does he need a university degree to be a matador? – Absolutely not; and so on and son so forth.”
