What Could you DO with $20,000

“What Could you Do with $20,000” by Blake Boles demonstrates what we could do with $20,000 dollars instead of spending it on college. He show’s people that instead of going to college and ending up in debt with the colleges you could have an apartment and you can travel around the world and use that twenty thousand for better things that will give you hands on life experience and that you can also get jobs and make extra cash on the way.  
    Blake Boles “What Could You Do with $20,000” show’s people that they don’t need college and that they are necessarily better without going to it. Boles gives us examples of his life how he did better without getting into college. He first started off by showing us what he could provide for himself with only 20K. First, he bought an apartment for 6 months and got a laptop. He also got high speed internet and still had a lot of money left over. What Boles then used that for was groceries and fun activities as well as traveling around the world and going to visit his family. Even after all of that he still has money left over and he still didn’t even mention all of the stuff that he can get for free and all the activities he can do! He goes on showing people that even though you haven’t gone to college you can still get a job and make extra money on the side. That’s not all you can also go be a free entern learning about the job you want and to see if its really meant for you. Although not many people agree with what Boles is trying to show us he still has a point. Most colleges are robbing us blind because we're going there to get a job that won't even pay us enough to pay off our college loans. With this Boles demonstrates to people that they don’t need to go to college to get a good job and make bank and that most people who do go to college and get a degree for a good job usually are worse off then not even going to college at all. How? With all of the debt they’re in when they graduate is worth more then the job that they went to college for. Why do people expect us to go to college and get a good job if in the end we won't even be able to use the money we earned.

    Good start. Make sure you eliminate personal words and proofread as you have a run-on sentence. Make sure you support your topic sentence with examples and explanations as to the main idea. End with a concluding sentence.

    In your response, make sure you take a position. Look back at examples of good argumentative topic sentence. Make sure you eliminate all personal words. You have good ideas, but they seem lost in run on sentences and sentences that need proofreading. Make sure to end with a clear concluding sentence.
