Education and work

I'm getting fucking tired of being put down because I can't meet some high expectations for the Education System. I understand we need to know shit in life, but in all seriousness. Come on! They teach you shit that's completely useless in life. I know education is important, unless you want to become a doorknob...but seriously school is over rated.

The fact that they make you sit there and learn shit that you're going to forget the minute you walk out of high school (unless you go into something with that needed) if ridiculous. I have to sit there and learn algebraic methods, bust my ass all year and then grow up and end up getting a "career" that has NOTHING to do with it at all! Thanks a lot education system. Thanks for making me waste my own time failing at stupidity. :)

Now, about work. When I think of it, I don't see it as such a bad thing. I kinda like it. You're getting paid for what you do, so I can't really complain. I don't like the fact that you have to work to live and live to work, but that's how it is under this stupid government. The thing I just don't get it when people go apeshit on their education and work so hard to follow that one single profession that they wish to obtain. I find it stupid because, don't you think. After thirty years of working where ever you are. You're going to get board of it? I would. If I had to be stuck in an office during three decades I would most probably go insane! It's like throwing your life away, because you're too busy saving up for your old age, and when you finally do retire. You can't even do some of the things you wanted to do because you're to old! So there you have it, you wasted you're whole life saving up and all that saved up money has to be used to pay fucking bills and government taxes. * applause*

I say live your life. The way YOU want to. Not the way you have to. It's sad how used we are by the people in this world that have the power. We're human! Just another species of animals. Do you see lions going to some corporate shithole every day to earn a living? No! They're still running around in the fields enjoying life the way a lion should. Why do us humans have to tell each other what to do and how to do it, and if you can't do it. Good luck living life buddy. Greed and power. Those two things ruined a lot of lives, the people obsessed with those two feelings are still ass raping the whole world, but us mere peasants just sit there and watch. Cause we can't do anything about it.

  1. Mike,
    You have a natural knack for writing, because your metaphors are hard-hitting and send vivid images immediately upon reading them. You need to keep writing, because not only of its cathartic healing power, but because your writer voice is that of your subconscious self- it's unihibited and free, untarnished by rules and edits. In other words, it's the truth spoken aloud.
    I have read most of your blogs posted until now, and I love not only what you have to say, but how you have to say it. I will tell you that sometimes the people who feel the most invisible often sadly don't realize how much light they truly do eminate.
    Secondly, I can't add. Math does not equal intelligence. A large number of friends does not dictate how much your worth.
    The something missing that you're referring to is called being 15. I'm not downplaying being a teenager at all when I say this, but it's true. I know you're angst, frustration and grief. That's why this job is the one for me. My hope is to make school suck a little less and to have you rise above times when adults act like children. To have you acknowledge your own strength, and to have you see that being 15 makes all these feelings more than ok. Hold your smart, talented head up high.
