If you indeed clicked this link with joy at how someone has finally joined you on the scanty queue of how awesome school life is, please shift before I slap you. If you however open this with the look of huh? Fantasy in school?! He even added awesome… this guy must be nuts! If this was your reaction, *chop knuckle*
I can’t over emphasize how over rated school is. From Nursery school, it’s been tragic and trust me, only students can understand this, so no offence if you’re a little bit old and you disagree with me, I’m not gonna beg you, I’ll just ask one question; Did you like school when you were my age?
I put down a million bucks (really, I have it) that your answer would be an emphatic NO!
So, lemme restructure the title of this post;
The UNAWESOME fantasy of being in school
Now let’s start.
DISCLAIMER: If you have folks or relatives that are professors and inventors, I mean no offence to them in particular. As you know me, I’m just being truthful.
Moving on, I’ll be handling this in stages or whatever you want to call them… *shrugs*;
- Who the h*ll invented Maths??!!
Was he high or something? I heard once that these inventors enjoyed what they did. Einstein, Newton, Faraday; these guys always felt some sort of ecstasy when they engaged in what they loved. Don’t get me wrong, I’m cool with that but what am not cool with is why I have to suffer for what they have done. I want to grow up and be a writer and architect, how does (dx/dy) or the Pythagoras theorem set the path for me?!
So, if your dad or mum teaches maths in the university, I’m literally pissed with them. If Homo erectus was cool with his spear and caves, why can’t we be? What’s the big deal about being Homo sapiens?
2. Chemistry!! Argh
Guess why I never chose to fill any engineering course on my JAMB form. Do I have to say more?
3. Physics *dies*…. Moving on.
4. And last but not the least, Classes and Exams.
What is the big deal behind exams anyway? Someone once told me “School is a necessary distraction” and I totally agree with the statement except for where he added “necessary”…. No offence to all the graduates out there but nah, it aint necessary. Before you kill me, just know Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Mark Zuckerberg are on my side of the fence; so Shoot.
Now that I’ve stated my point, I hope I’ve convinced and not confused you that education is overrated and if I was granted the option of living a life like Bill Gates’ or going to school, I’ll be on the pinnacle of the conference table in Microsoft’s headquarters right now.
I do hope I’ve not stepped on anybody’s toes; this is just me ranting and frustrated with school life, projects, assignments and all of it.
In order news, 69 days to go… July 26 is still a Reality.
