But really, the issue isn't really that he's touring and not going to school, tons of people make that choice and while I wouldn't it really doesn't make a difference to me. When people act like they're better than me because they're traveling and getting the "experience" of touring is the issue....and yeah, you guys in TWY's degrees ended up being largely unused but how many bands get to the point you're at? And idunno I just feel like there's more value and lower risk to going to college than putting it off to tour. But yeah, none of that really makes a difference to me if you're not a douche about it

the kid is living his dream, who cares if people on the internet dont like that.

I would have put off school to go on tour too

Don't know if I was on my hating grind last night or if I was just bored but I kind of agree with this.

Secondly, parents can be as proud as they want, but preachy internet attitude grates me.

Also, I feel like a lot of 17-18 year old suburban white kids are especially entranced by the Kerouacian sense of road trips and life-changing experiences and "in that moment I swear we were infinite" and Bukowski and Hunter S. Thompson and stuff like that. So I feel like that attitude towards what he's doing shouldn't be all that surprising.

i took a break reading here because yepx1000. this is completely accurate as far as i can tell.

My parent's student of the month occasionally gets high.

He's also a highly likely MBA candidate at his country's 3rd highest-ranked business school.

it being directed at parents doesnt make it any less condescending.
