Learning. I love learning. There is nothing better than understanding a complicated topic and being able to carry a conversation that no one else understands. But school school is not learning. school is rain rot. School is a bunch of adults getting together and insulting my intelligence for 7 hours. I want to learn tell me something I don’t know. TEACH ME SOMETHING PLEASE. The thing about public school is, no matter how “good” the school you get into, it’s all the same. People talk and don’t shut up.
Once a week you get at least one ‘sit down and talk’ conversation about what it means to be respectful. Everytime the teachers come up with a new angle. In example, phones are teaching us to be impatient, respect your elders because they know more than you, learn to walk away from people you don’t get along with. Blah blah blah. It’s been the same since elementary and kids still don’t listen. So let’s skip the stalling time and get to teaching please.
I want to go into the world thinking I’m prepared for it. I think everything they are teaching us is important. Everything is, but perhaps we could have a class on how to handle taxes, or maybe a decent sex education would be good. Young girls are out here getting impregnated and they don’t know how to handle a child. Perhaps we could teach things that are more experience based too? It’s just an idea.
Fortunately, our school has already provided job resumes and taught us how to formally present in meetings, but what about CPR???? I think everyone should be certified by the end of highschool. GAH. I know, I know, they can’t do everything and it’s probably really expensive to get all the supplies but still we should make an effort.
That’s all I really wanted to say. I’m done ranting. I’m perfectly aware that this has all been said before and all I’m doing is regurgitating what my peers have said in the past. But ya. That’s all.
