Your palate Will experience undertones of maple and cider with a texture that’s almost crackling. The unprocessed bun is made freshly out of organic wheat and infused with modest amounts of garlic.

  1. And this is why I’m glad I got my degree in something that will apply to literally anything I do (Business degree). Because literally any job in the world is a business and understanding how that stuff works will be useful somewhere. Unless the world throws away the entire economy which is impossible. (Plus classes I took have been about stuff like how to write a resume and do well in job interviews).

  25. My mom ACTUALLY supports this. She doesn't believe in miracles happening when u get a degree or diploma, they happen when you work hard and do what you want.

  26. I have a Nursing degree, but I'm now an entrepreneur and a part-time model. Also an aspiring vlogger hihihihi ❀️❀️ Love you, Lilly!

  27. I write fiction on the side and am hoping to get published…but for 13 years Ive been a secretary for a child and spousal support office on an English Literature degree

  28. Brilliant video. She is very smart. Many college degrees are useless and young people are enslaved with huge student loans because they were lied to and told that a college degree was a "great investment".

  29. I think the "don't go to college" rhetoric is extremely dangerous especially for minorities in this "post-truth age". It sees as though a college education is appreciated only for the income a person hopes it would bring. While this is extremely important, a college education contributes much more holistically to the the total individual. A college education empowers you (or should empower you) to discern the truth from the lie in information that is handed to you – information that even the tech giants hand to you through various means. Don't ever regret investing in the development of your thinking skills.

  30. Zoology degree is the only thing I want, I want to work with them and treat them like I would another person.

  31. I got accepted to be a biomedical engineer.While it's a great major their are not any jobs for it. No one ever got a job in it.I know in other countries its desired πŸ’”πŸ˜­its sad how so many engineers here are unemployed

  32. Funny video and thought provoking. The truth is that the first lesson in Intro to psychology class tells you exactly what you need to do to become a psychologist, no where it says that you're going to get anything with a bachelors, a Bachelors in Psychology only gives you theories, you need a PHD or PSY-D to get to work as a psychologist. Undergrad is only basics to get into a PHD program. Not every field is like that, if you want to get a good paying job, go for a career field that only requires undergrad; my husband did engineering and he doesn't need anything beyond bachelors to make good money or to have better opportunities.Β 
    I think people are really not paying attention is school to go through with the entire program and not know the scope of the field, that's literally taught in the basic class. I was initially going to do a psychology undergrad but after intro to psych I changed my major because I didn't want to be in school for 10 more years then I went on doing exercise physiology and that was a mistake! But my interest still lies in psychology and I am back into it, this time I am gonna spend as long as I need to because this is what I want to do with my life, not for money but because I believe in mental health being more important than physical health, most physical problems can be avoided with good stress management skills. I suffer from auto-immune disease so I know this for a fact!
    Anyway, Love you, Lilly.

  33. Please tell me that I'm not the only one who loved that Star Wars Darth Vader impression? Good job. πŸ‘πŸ‘
