Funny how life happens, isn't it? You really just never know where someone might end up. I was going through some old photos the other day from my daughter's high school years and came across some hilarious ones of a young Tyler Oakley before he became mega-YouTube star, Tyler Oakley.
Tyler was a senior when my kid was a freshman and he was nice enough to take her under his wing in the drama club. At one of her first high school activities, a drama lock-in, he ran around the school with her and some others snapping photos in random places, like mop closets and laundry bins. She has never forgotten his inclusiveness and kind spirit during that time.
I also found photos from plays and musicals - he might pay me to destroy the ones from "Canterbury Tales" since he even mentioned his horrible costume in his best-selling book, "Binge." I also have a few from when my daughter won a bidding war (for charity) for the opportunity to have him follow her around for the day and carry her books, take her to breakfast and even perform a Back Street Boys song for her in the lunchroom. (I'm guessing it would cost a lot more than $40 to get that now.)

Stats show 40 to 50 percent of students entering college in 2016 will be self-employed or will freelance at some point in their careers, according to a study commissioned by Intuit. The economy, students' desires and the world's expectations of students are all very different than what I faced when I graduated college.
