When Your School Degree Is Useless

– Shh, do you hear that? Do you hear that? It's the sound of my Indian parents reading this video title and dying inside "No!" (light galloping) – What up, everyone? It's your girl, Superwoman

And throughout my entire childhood, my parents always used to say things like, "People can take away everything from you, "but they can't take your education" "Without school degree, you're nothing" So I grew up thinking that a piece of paper that said I am smart at a thing would simplify my life Yo, once I get a degree, I'm gonna literally have like zero problems and that's 99 less than Jay-Z So, go school! – Lilly Singh, here's your diploma

– [Woman] We'd like to offer you a job – Here's a raise – You have a career now – You're an adult (bell dings) – So I'm like, "Okay

" I worked really hard for four years in university to get a psychology degree, and guess what happened – Lilly Singh, here's your diploma – [Woman] We'd like to offer you a job as a psychologist – Really? – [Woman] No, it takes like 10 years of experience – Oh

You know what the real slap in the face is? I ended up having a career that literally has nothing to do with my degree Like my psychology education is useless I make comedy videos Now, what would Freud do? Okay, now hold up Every time I say this, people are like, "No, what do you mean?" "You make such funny videos "because of your psychology degree, yo

" "No, you know why you're really relatable?" "Because of your psychology degree, yo" "You like get people because of your psychology degree, yo" That's exactly how they sound, too "Because of your psychology degree, yo" And I'm just like, "Yo, it best be "because of my psychology degree

" Straight up, 'cause that ish cost thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars to my parents My parents paid for my degree They wanted it They paid for it And trust me, I've tried, okay? In my previous jobs, I really attempted to put my degree to good use

I can't help but notice that you've been acting a little strange recently, and I really think that you should talk to somebody about it I get it can be hard to feel like you're constantly giving and giving without receiving anything in return It probably reminds you of your childhood when all you wanted was to make your mother proud, but you never got that validation And all that anger and resentment follows you into your adulthood, and that's why you get heated But I want you to know that everyone here appreciates you

Okay, now let's see how you're feeling (loud rattling) (sighs) Tell me about your relationship with your father And to be honest, it's not just me, okay? I can't think of a single person that is using their degree Like my one friend, she has an English degree and she's a waitress – How's the rustic burger? – It features three pounds of evenly grilled meat that carries an aroma of pinewood

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 And the burger itself has a melody of garnishes that sing the perfect song Companioned with a side helping of french fries, this burger, for me personally, is very nostalgic and exquisite, to say the least – So, it's lit? – Yes, it is lit

– Cool I'll have the pizza – Coming right up – Another one of my friends studied law – I was so stressed out, and then this cop stopped me out of nowhere

– Well, you had the right to remain silent Anything you said could and would be used against you in the court of law You also had the right to an attorney But if you can't afford one, one would be appointed to you Are you aware of your rights as a citizen in this country? – So, anyways, this cop stops me and, get this, he found my wallet

– Now that I think about it, I can't think of even one time I have used my degree Actually, no, no, no, that's a lie That's a lie There was that one time I used it ("Star Wars Theme" by John Williams) Yo, check this out

"I am your father" (laughs) Sick Hmm, that one time Anyways, stay in school, kids I hope you enjoyed that video and you could relate to it, or you know people that can relate to it
