Back To School

  • Before I talk about prison-
  • Before I talk about school,
  • I just want to let you guys know that
  • this video has been sponsored by VRV.
  • Home to your favorite shows and channels.
  • Go to VRV.co/Domics (link below),
  • and be granted a 30 day trial of premium membership.
  • Stick around to the end of the video for an exciting announcement.
  • You're welcome.
  • (Awesome as theme music ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  • Sudden realization that you have to go back to school
  • Oh boy! It's that time again, back to school!
  • Hee hee hee, I cannot contain my excitement
  • for a new year of discoveries about the world and myself.
  • Person: "Hey, didn't you graduate six years ago?"
  • Domics: "..can a man not wish to be young again..?"
  • Yes, I've been done with school for a while now
  • and while being an adult definitely has its perks.
  • Domics: "Yes, uh-may I have four dozen doughnuts, please?"
  • Employee: "Haha, having a party later, huh?"
  • Domics: "No-hoh-ho-o, I am NOT."
  • I still remember and miss the simple and carefree days as a kid.
  • Most of you watching
  • will probably be starting a new school year soon.
  • And some of you have graduated
  • and are advancing on to the next tier of education,
  • and I'm aware other students around the world
  • start at different times in the year
  • so I apologize if this one's too late or too early for you.
  • You might be groaning at the fact
  • that you have to go back to doing homework,
  • putting up with boring lectures,
  • being forced to socialize with undesirable people.
  • But you may also be looking forward to making new friends,
  • seeing old ones,
  • learning something new and all sorts of things.
  • Try not to expect it as a repeat of the previous year.
  • That's kinda lame...
  • Make it one with new opportunities, do things differently.
  • Also for your first day back,
  • if you plan on stressing over what to wear
  • because you're worried about how people will think of you,
  • ehh, don't.
  • I guess it's easier said than done
  • because some of us are more insecure than others.
  • But let me tell you that no-hoho body really cares...
  • and those that do care... are nobodies.
  • See, that's why the statement make sense to nobody...
  • I mean maintain a decent level of hygiene,
  • first impressions aren't only limited to the clothes you wear.
  • But do you think I remember what anyone wore
  • on the first day of class when I was 15?
  • Hellllll no!
  • Why would I waste storage in my memory for that?
  • I don't even remember what I wore,
  • there is no legacy to it.
  • But, if you want to look good just for yourself,
  • *Lips smack*
  • who am I to stand in the way of you doing you.
  • I tell this to people all the time,
  • having gone through my years of education.
  • School isn't for everyone,
  • I realized that, for a lot of people they've simply been told
  • that school is important and mandatory.
  • and they continue living with that mindset
  • without finding truth in it for themselves.
  • How many of you guys, show hands,-
  • actually wait no, I can't see you.
  • But how many of you are in college or university,
  • just because your parents told you it's the only way to get a job,
  • and how many of you who chose
  • not to go to post-secondary education,
  • get heavy judgment from peers
  • when they find out you're not in school.
  • And how many of those people choke
  • because they have trouble eating their words
  • when you prove yourself to them.
  • School isn't for everyone,
  • Yeah, elementary, junior, and high school
  • definitely build your foundation as an adolescent,
  • but after that,
  • I think you should be free to choose
  • how you become an adult.
  • I mean most information learned at school is out there in libraries,
  • does anyone even go to libraries?
  • Okay, the Internet, readily accessible
  • for anyone willing to teach themselves.
  • I did not go to school for animation.
  • And if I realize it sooner how much more fun it was,
  • I would have either dropped out or switched programs.
  • I still have ways to go and improving my skill,
  • but everything I've learned
  • was through friends and the Internet.
  • When I say school isn't for everyone,
  • I mean that as long as
  • you have some sort of drive for knowledge
  • to improve yourself and grow as a person,
  • then it doesn't really matter which direction you go.
  • School is simply a platform of which these things can take place.
  • But you can't teach someone who's not willing to learn.
  • And I get it,
  • the public schooling structure can be pretty skewed.
  • All of you have your own developed interests.
  • And the education system generally tries to examine you
  • on your ability to perform in multiple subjects
  • that you may not equally find interesting.
  • Therefore making your grade point average a flawed representation
  • of how intelligent you actually are.
  • It discouraged me at first
  • when I just couldn't do well in some of my courses.
  • Was I just stupid? I mean, I tried my best...
  • I wouldn't say I struggled in school...
  • thanks Kumon.
  • but at some point I just came to the realization
  • that maybe I just suck at physics.
  • Person: "Oh hey, same here!"
  • Domics: "I know right?
  • "Oh..."
  • And that's perfectly okay!
  • There's always room to learn and improve.
  • and there's always room to accept
  • that you're just bad at something.
  • We're all stupid in different aspects and categories,
  • what's not okay though
  • is to claim to be incapable without first trying.
  • You guys will be discovering more about your strengths-
  • stra-stran-kafus, I hate that word...
  • Your non-weaknesses in these coming years.
  • and as tough as it may seem,
  • make the best of it.
  • Because you'll only get to experience it once.
  • If you're still in elementary school,
  • I'd say kick back,
  • have a popsicle.
  • Enjoy yourself for now,
  • your homework consists of simple math and reading books.
  • When you hear the adults
  • telling you to enjoy being a kid while you still can,
  • believe them.
  • Sure, you can still be a kid at heart
  • when you're an adult,
  • but it's not the same carefree kind
  • as what you guys are experiencing now.
  • I really miss it.
  • And it's a shame
  • when I see some of you in such a hurry to be adults.
  • Domics: "Hey kid! What's the rush?"
  • Kid: "I wanna pay taxes!"
  • Domics: "what the fu...?!"
  • High school students! My tip for you...
  • Just survive.
  • I'm serious.
  • I'm not even gonna sugarcoat it.
  • High school will suck for a lot of you.
  • You may meet a few great people and make a few endearing memories,
  • but you can't really credit high school for it.
  • High school is what you make it to be,
  • just do your best in your classes
  • and accept that those four years
  • are merely a time for you to discover yourself,
  • and what kind of adult you want to be?
  • What a lot of you consider "achievements",
  • don't really carry over into adulthood.
  • Trust me,...
  • no one really cares that you scored
  • that-that one touchdown back in tenth grade...
  • Make friends with who you feel comfortable with
  • and not with people who are your friends
  • under condition and by that,
  • I mean you're only friends
  • as long as you are providing them
  • with a certain benefit of some sort.
  • Those aren't friends, okay?
  • Those are just convenient acquaintances
  • that you just happen to see on a daily basis.
  • But even if you make good friends,
  • you must accept the possibility of drifting apart
  • with some of them after graduation.
  • It's not necessarily anyone's fault.
  • It's sad, but people just grow,
  • sometimes apart and on their own paths.
  • College and university students,
  • come here, come a little closer...
  • Turn the volume up...
  • BALANCE YOUR TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • School, work, relationships, hobbies,
  • whatever things you wish to be involved in,
  • make sure you keep a balance between all of them.
  • Because no matter what,
  • stress will find its way to throw you off.
  • and the more balanced you are,
  • the harder it'll be to fall.
  • If there's too much on your plate,
  • be prepared to sacrifice some things.
  • In the 4 years I was in University,
  • I gave up a lot of my hobbies,
  • besides building plans, site elevations and cross sections of parapets.
  • By the way, this is called a parapet.
  • And yes, that's one thing.
  • I learned from my years in architecture.
  • I didn't really draw any personal art,
  • I also stopped watching anime,
  • and I couldn't really play too many video games.
  • Maybe that's why I lost my passion for architecture,
  • or maybe it was just the intensity of the program.
  • I realized those things were a big part of who I was,
  • and I couldn't bear to fully immerse myself
  • in a career where those were absent.
  • And yeah, some of you guys on this channel might be new
  • and not know that I studied architecture.
  • But obviously I settled on a different path.
  • Your experiences in these years will likely be the most memorable.
  • This isn't just high school part 2
  • but now you don't live at home,
  • this isn't just high school,
  • but you get to pay
  • for courses that you like.
  • This isn't just busywork until you're done,
  • and all of a sudden you're ready for the world.
  • This is one of the ways you enter adulthood
  • and join the rest of us
  • who have been molded by our own unique experiences.
  • Experiences ranging from sweet to bitter,
  • Experiences that make you think if that never happened to me,
  • I wouldn't be who I am today.
  • And if you're not going to school,
  • or taking your year off for a breather,
  • earning some money, and maybe travel,
  • or even if you're going straight into the working field.
  • That's fine, too.
  • It's fine.
  • Everything's fine!
  • Why did I even make this video?!
  • I just want to tell you guys to find enjoyment
  • in the time you have,
  • while you have it.
  • I'm not telling you to live every day
  • as if it was your last.
  • Goodness! No, that sounds exhausting and subjective...
  • Do-does anyone really try to live by that?
  • All I'm saying is as long as you use that time
  • to at least make something of yourself
  • and discover more of what goals you want to achieve in your life,
  • then it's not wasted time.
  • But with that said,
  • you also can't just mindlessly follow your dreams.
  • You hear that advice a lot,
  • but in reality it's very unsustainable for everyone to do so,
  • it might be better to say:
  • "follow your dreams, but not off a cliff."
  • As in chase your dreams but be mindful of where it leads you,
  • and think things through before
  • deciding to make a leap.
  • Everyone's kind of in a hurry to figure out
  • what they want to do for the rest of their life,
  • but understand that,
  • you have the rest of your life to figure it out.
  • Even right now,
  • a lot of you adults probably have jobs
  • that you've been in for years.
  • But still, something deep inside your mind
  • is telling you, this isn't it.
  • The search isn't over.
  • You may be comfortable with something one day,
  • but then totally change the next.
  • As humans, we never stop growing.
  • We are always adapting and changing.
  • I wish you guys some good discoveries
  • in the upcoming semesters.
  • Good luck.
  • Wait, no, sorry.
  • I mean, you succ.
  • (I wish you success, for new viewers don't get offended k)
  • Maybe you want to discover some shows
  • for your break from homework
  • or need something in the background while you work.
