I just don’t understand. We start out being told we can do anything we put our minds to. That we are in control of our future. And then as we grow up, we get responsibilities. And suddenly, everything isn’t possible anymore. We’re then taught that the only way to be socially accepted is to do what we are told to do and maintain an education. Which is oddly a reflection on who you are, like how the color of your skin, the pigment of your eyes, the clothes you wear are all a reflection of who you are. To society. We start out feeling invincible and free. Then we go up in grades, and every thing that we thougt were possible before is now impossible. In fact, we’re told that it was neverpossible the way we were previously told to “succeed” and that if we do it THIS way, we’ll be able to do it. I feel like I’m rambling, what I’m trying to say is school is absolute bullshit. We start out in a race believing we’re going to win, and then we’re told we’re going to be in last place becaue that’s not how you do it anymore. We can’t think freely anymore because our teachers think for us. And when we do think freely, education gets in the way because once again. If you want to succeed, there’s only one way to it. And I should probably shut my mouth because I’m not doing a damn thing about it. I work hard. I have straight A’s, my family’s proud of me. I ask my mom to let me stay home and do unfinished chores so I don’t have to go. It has nothing to do with the people, or the teachers, or the deans and principal, not even how the school operates. But because I spend 6 hours of my life, every week day, inside a building, listening to someone tell me how to think. And I say to myself “I’m not happy.”-“Why am I here?”-“How come this is right, but my heart feels like it’s wrong?” I lost the passion for my dreams, because now, I have to do this, and this, and this to even get halfway there. I’m so fed up and tired. Because I started out believing that if I put my MIND to it. Not my test scores, or my GPA, or how I analyze this and that. My MIND. MY MIND. My heart, and soul. But I’ve been broken down to such fine dust, that I can’t even do that. Those are my thought’s on school.
