Going back to school isn't necessarily fun, per se. Once the excitement of buying school supplies is over, you have to sit at a desk for six hours, work through mind-boggling equations, and fight the urge to fall asleep during history class. We get it. But John Green, one of the hilarious brothers behind the YouTube channel VlogBrothers, has a few reasons you should look on the bright side when it comes time to hitting the books again.
His four-minute lesson on the importance of education is miles away from the dry lectures you might dread in school. Instead, he offers a new point of view in his open letter to students. Going to school doesn't just benefit you, he argues -- it benefits everyone around you.
"Public education isn't a charity project," he says in his signature rapid-fire manner. "I want you to go to school and grow up and make my life better… I'm paying [taxes] for your education so you can invent a microwave pizza with an actually crispy crust!"
Check out the video above for the rest of Green's "rant" about why school doesn't always suck -- and it's okay to look forward to September coming around.
