Mary-Kate not bookish

Mary_Kate_Jealous.jpgMary-Kate Olsen has revealed why she dropped out of NYU and moved back to Los Angeles.

“I’m happy that I kind of realized that, OK, I just need to take care of myself right now,” she told W. “I need to be able to go to yoga and work out and just read scripts and go on auditions, because that’s what makes me happy. You know? Like, papers don’t really make me happy.”

Papers generally don’t make anyone happy. What it makes them is educated. I’ll admit that having your ass wiped with hundred dollar bills since the age of two does make education somewhat less important. But if it keeps you from saying ‘like, you know?’ and helps you understand that eating = life, starving = death, then maybe it was worth it. Hmmm, then again maybe not.
