A Mom Came Up With The Perfect Way For Her Daughter To Respond To 'Your Degree Won't Keep You Warm At Night'

Anyone who chooses a field of study that isn’t something “practical” like business or engineering has heard the old, “Your degree won’t keep you warm at night” at some point throughout their time in college. Often poorly disguised as “looking out for you,” this dig is really just a way for people to make you feel bad about choosing a major you genuinely wanted to learn about instead of looking solely at what a future salary might get you.

Twitter user @blahblahSPEAK got a master’s degree in education, and has evidently been on the receiving end of some of those not-so-nice comments. Her mother evidently wasn’t having it and decided to pose the question, “Who says her degree won’t keep her warm at night?” with the perfect gift: A blanket with her diploma printed on it.

 

Frankly, this is straight-up genius. Putting your degree in a frame on the wall? No, we need to take it up a notch.

You worked for years to get this far; if you’re not showing off your degree as a blanket, what’s the point?

 

 

 

One Twitter user even had the idea to start printing degrees on t-shirts, so you can walk around letting people know how hard you’ve worked. Honestly, not a bad idea.

 

And if you want to know how her mom got this incredible gift, @blahblahSPEAK was willing to share.

 

 

So, okay, maybe us “impractical” majors won’t be out here making six-figure salaries, but you can never say we won’t be warm at night again.
