  1. Makes me want to build something.

    Makes me want to have a kid to teach to build something.

    Makes me want to be a grandfather so I don’t have to work and so I can have a grandchild to teach to build something.

  2. love how all the kids are on their phones in school…..this is why our education system sucks and less and less graduate :/ when I was in school me and about 5 other kids had phones in the whole school and kids were graduating. sad times we live in that this is actually happening.

  3. He makes very good points for schools and governments to stop cutting art and shop classes to save money.

  4. WOO! Whole heartedly agree on his allergy story. Kids need to learn to feel what it’s like to fail so when they succeed it means something. I’ve already done that with my 3 year old daughter and I’ll continue with my next child (which is due in December! :))

  5. This makes me want to build that dinner table I can’t find anywhere… can barely hold a hammer.

    Interesting video, Adam.

  6. It seems to me that our teachers play the biggest role in education. I remember my writing teacher, he was a great person and a qualified specialist. He instilled in me a love of writing and now I work as an academic writer at https://wowgrade.net/ . Thank you, Daric Rawlinds!

  7. Hi, thanks for your post. An interesting and important question has been disclosed, which does not lose its relevance. I am a young student 3rd year and education is difficult for me, but I am ready to spend time on such topics.

    For me, in recent months, finding time for working on academic assignments has become a challenge for me. As a first time mom with a toddler, I know how hard it is to maintain a balance between personal, professional commitments and education.

    Things have changed since I started receiving writing help. Whether I have to work on a thesis, dissertation, essay or research paper, I can get it written by an experienced writer and pay attention to things that are much more important to me.

    With that said, it is important to mention that there are so many bad writing services out there, and it is not easy to find a reliable company. Reading online reviews can be helpful, but unfortunately most reviews are fake. So, you have to use your commonsense to figure out how to find a writing service you can rely on.

    Before I found PapersOwl.com, I used a few other companies promising to write high-quality essays. And to say the least, the quality was utterly disappointing.

    I have continued using PapersOwl for two reasons. First, finding a writer is super easy because there are so many qualified writers on the site. And second, the writers respect my deadlines.

    While a writer works on my paper, I can learn what’s going on on the college campus, dive a little bit deeper into my course, tutor a diploma student struggling with his coursework, visit the library, read a book, conduct some research and analysis, and think and figure out how to maintain a high GPA.

    Whether you are a high-school student working on your term paper, or a PhD candidate, using a writing service can have positive effects on your life. When academic commitments become overwhelming, a writing service can save your sanity.

    Writing is a valuable skill, and teachers are right when they encourage their students to develop this skill. But for a university student with a part-time job, too many writing assignments can take the joy out of formal education. In such a situation, we should view the role of a writing service from a positive perspective.
