Rocking The Solo: Why Paying Your Education Journey Can Be a Sour Note and Keep You From Outsourcing Education

We’re going to dive right into the topic, which is hotter than jalapenos on a sunny summer day: This sounds like a cheesy plot from the 90s, doesn’t? This is just as real, as is the coffee addiction most students develop by their 2nd semester.

So, you’re swamped. You have essays coming out of every pore, exams looming over your head, and don’t get me started on group assignments (because we know just how poorly they work). This idea comes to mind: “What’s wrong with paying someone to handle this mess for me?” Tempting, right? As if you were reaching for your last slice of pizza even though you know that it’s too late.

This is the crux of it: education is meant to fill your head with knowledge, and not your wallet up with receipts from “Academic Support.” The point of education is to learn how to think critically.

Let’s look at the details. Imagine you have a band and pay someone else for your gigs. If you decide to play solo, your fans may be a bit more enthusiastic, but they will disappear when the time comes. You can’t outsource your education. You miss those solos that are personal triumphs.

We’ll now look at the ethical swamp that we get into when we take this path. It’s more murky than the mystery stew my grandmother makes. Paying someone to do the work for you is like wearing stilts during a race. Sure, your time might be faster but it’s not your real legs.

But don’t start with fairness. It’s akin to bringing a chainsaw to a paper, scissors and rock tournament. Some people sweat over textbooks until 2 AM, while others just open their wallets. Doesn’t quite scream “level-playing field,” does this?

You’ll also have to deal with the issue of who does the heavy-lifting for you. It may seem that these figures, typing away on your assignments for you, are knights of shining armor. But remember: Every knight has a price. Some of the costs are not just money. Consider privacy concerns and lackluster quality control.

The technology has made it easier than before to play the dangerous game of academic Roulette. The number of websites that offer these services is greater than the number of cat videos available on the internet. (Okay, perhaps not so many). As soon as a new cheating tech trick is released, another hack appears.

What’s your big takeaway from all of this? Imagine yourself being caught. It’s likely that you will. The consequences are not only academic; they also include the fact that you will be caught if you take the escalator to the top of the mountain instead of walking up.

Finally, oh no! Wasn’t it that I said I wouldn’t do a formal wrap up? Then, let’s keep things simple. Next time your tempted by Aunt Edna’s unwanted holiday sweater to pass on your educational journey, think twice. Remember the reasons you set out on this educational journey in the first instance and take pride in overcoming those challenges.

Plus, who really wants Aunt Edna’s knitwear? Also, who really wants Aunt Edna’s knitted sweater? About grades; it’s all about growing into your best self – even if that’s painfully slow. In the middle of a world full of memories just waiting to happen.
