High school is a waste of time. I used to not openly detest it. I do now. What has changed? I’ve never enjoyed school, but I always saw school as a way to grow my intellect. Now that I’ve been reading, writing, researching, socializing, and sketching in my free time, I see school as a disciplined, busy working, waste of time.
I know I can use my time way more effectively outside school and I see the lack of an encompassing point in schoolwork. Ergo, I openly loathe school now.
Once you begin education outside of school, you realize the topics of research in school is narrow, close-minded, and focused on the how. I want to know why we do things. I don’t what to take the integral of an equation or learn a topic when I don’t understand why I’m doing it.
And frequently, when you ask why, the teachers do not know. It is just in the curriculum.
do not feed me lines to memorize. And if you’re insistent on that way of operation, then I’ll simply find education elsewhere.
