itsssnix: Taxes are not that hard. There are always people to walk you through your insurance stuff. Paying bills is pretty self-explanatory.
But in “real life” no one will point out the beauty of John Donne’s use of metaphors or how algorithms work or more importantly, perhaps, how to think critically and find evidence for your claims and how to articulate your thoughts and work with other people who, yes, will let you down but also will challenge and stretch you because they are not like you. Those are the things the world expects you to be ready to do. And those are the things school teaches you.
So stop asking how to do your taxes instead. Everyone uses TurboTax anyway.

I have to learn shorthand as part of my course, it’s considered essential for journalists!


The problem with teeline shorthand is when you write “face the consequences” you could also be writing “fuck the consequences” and it looks exactly the same.
