I have an English degree. Let me give everyone a moment to giggle. Done? Awesome! I get that reaction a lot, but here's the thing – although people like to “joke” that English degrees are worthless, that's actually a short-sighted, rather ignorant point-of-view. There's a world of opportunity waiting for you when you graduate with an English degree, so it's by no means a waste of education. It's not for everyone, that's true, but there's so much potential for a truly epic career. And, yeah, okay. There's room for lots of jokes, as well.
