if you don't, then don't fuckin' read this shit. it's a really long rant, so bear with me.

Here's the deal... i was never good in school... sure, i blamed it on the teachers, just like everybody else who went through high school... they just didn't seem to understand that books are not the way of teaching for many people. i don't learn from books. books are useless to me. sure, i can read that shit... but once i'm done, it'll all be forgotten. i learn from watching and doing... call me ignorant/stupid/whatever, but i don't care... i don't care about history... i don't care about math... i don't care about anything they taught me... or, rather, tried to teach me.

yeah, i did good... in grades 1-4, i was an A student... after that, i slipped... B student... C student... then i barely passed any grades in high school. why? because of teachers who couldn't teach? because of my unwillingness to learn? because of my inability? or because of a mixture of all of the above? i'm not saying i was incapable... i was, even though i don't admit it sometimes. even though we had teachers who couldn't teach, i'm not blaming them.

i'll use math as an example... math 12 (stupidest decision i ever made was taking that course)... math was never my strong point... so when he gave us notes, sure, i wrote them down... but they didn't help me any. because the notes he gave us had nothing to do with the homework he assigned us. i'm no good at math, as i've said... especially when it comes to figuring things out for myself. history, too... the final exam had nothing to do with what we learned in class. most of it was based on opinion and facts... so i failed both those exams.

i don't have my high school diploma. why? because of 2 subjects... history 12 and math 12. they were, perhaps, the most useless subjects i've ever taken. a large part of history 12 was contributing to the class... giving your opinion... but what if i have no opinion? what if i just want to sit and take notes? what if i was taught all my life that i was stupid, that my opinion was counted for nothing... shot down... stepped upon? another thing is group work... we did a lot of big projects and stuff... what if i prefered to work alone? so i just sat in my spot at the back of the class, while everybody got into their little groups, and i'd end up joining whatever group was short a person, or i'd end up working alone. i've been doing that since grade 8.

i hated memorizing facts. you know why? because facts get you nowhere in the real world. who cares if the 100 year war didn't last exactly 100 years? who cares if an elephant's the largest land animal on earth? i don't care. it's useless... all of it. i find i can be happier if i'm un-informed. what difference can i make in this world? i am one voice among 6 billion. my opinion doesn't count. that's also why i choose not to vote. because i know nothing of political parties or their policies. my parents would want me to vote CHP (christian heritage party... yes, they're christian.) fuck that. i simply do not care. i just want to live my life as i want to live my life... i don't want to be dictated... pushed around... bossed around (though that is ineveitable, i'd have to say).

on a final note, i'm not normal... i'm not like most people who seem to care about their future... i'm different. i take whatever life hands me. i float from job to job, taking whatever i can get... if i become a street bum, so be it. i'm going to say this now... you're all witnesses (if you've read this far), so i can't blame anybody else... whatever happens, is MY fault. if i end up living on the street, it's my fault. if i end up living with my parents till i'm 45 (seems likely at this point), it's my fault. my fault for not wanting to go to college... my fault for being a jackass.
[/long, boring rant]

blah... my fingers are getting tired.

feel free to rip me apart on this post... that's all i've been getting for the past 12 years of my life anyway. i can take it.

congrats if you've read this far.

I'm not going to rip you apart on this, because I can relate to this. I was an A student back then, then it started to slip later on, during puberty and such.
I can relate to what your going through man, its the same way for me, I'm having trouble with school and findjing a job. Just in the future, try to do things a lil' better. Thats what I'm trying to do, so good luck. :thumbsup:

So... you don't care if you don't go anywhere in life? That is such a stupid mentality; you just want to be some grumpy dude that uses "I don't care" as an excuse not to go anywhere? As harsh as this may sound, you *seem*are a waste of life.

Is this really your birthday: January 4, 1941 ? (got this from your profile)

If it is. It is a bit too late to start complaining!

Since you don't care about your life, I would suggest to travel the world. Just go around the world and work on whatever you can get, then move on. If you are going to waste your life away, might as well have fun doing it.

All you need is your passport. Well, yeah you would need some $ to go to Europe or across the ocean. But you can travel to south America. You can cross the border to USA, travel to California, then go to Mexico, then go to central America. If you make it that far down, then you will be able to make it to BRAZIL. You will enjoy life down here... I am speaking for experience. If you don't make it that far down, and get killed by some extremist group, who cares, you apparently don't give a fuck about much...

you and the other 5 million american seniors in high school are the reason Japan is going to run the county in 20 years. You're bitching about not being able to memorize facts and read books, but that is what school is.
Before you continue on telling me about your social problems, and the lack of quality education oppurtunities in this country. Ask yourself if you you really and truly tried in high school ... how many hours did you spend on books at home during the the week. Now compare that number to the time spent playing X-Box, PS2, PC games, the internet, going to the mall with buddies, and the 100 other distractions that were available.
I was a shitty student in high school, just like you ... I thought I sucked at math, the same as you. My first year of college my GPA was fucking 0.9. That summer, I got off my ass, and for the first time in my life I applied myself to school. That meant 2-3 hours of studying every night, every single night and not just 10 minutes the day before a test. You know what happened? I made the fucking dean's list that summer with 3.85 GPA in 13 semester hours of work. I was damn proud of myself to. My grades were never again quite that high, but now I know that I could do it and I knew what it would take to be successful in school.

It's times like this I'm glad i'm a genius...I never tried in school and got 3.75 all the way...senior year I graduated with a 4.1 (honors classes)...I cant relate, the only hope I can offer is that you meet an incredibly smart woman to bear your seed...so your kids might have a chance.

If you go to community college,(they pretty much let you in)...for two years and get your A.A or whatever...you can transfer to a 4 year university, no prob. Get out of that "pity me...i'm stupid...nobody likes me" mentality, turn off the computer...sell your videogames....get some books....and FUCKING DO IT...dont bitch to us...get off your ass and make it happen.

i know exactly what you mean. there was so much i got distracted with, so much that shot me down to such a miserable, unmotivated state. i've always tried to find ways to make myself better because i knew i could do better, but it's suprising what can hold you back. for the most part since i moved from the city school has been the stupidest crap on earth. even when or if i apply myself to it, i still know that majority of what they teach you is useless aswell as the way they teach it. everything they teach you is so incredibly basic and could take up so much less time.. but of course in a public school they are teaching to herds of students who all have different specific learning abilities.. which they can't take time for every single student, be they fucking stupid or 'smart' --which the 'smart' ones are usually just normal kids who would rather have rules and restrictions to define themselves. so they get the good grades because they want these children to join the drones of society--so they stretch it all out into a seemingly detailed lesson plan.. but it's all stupid pointless little assignments that make up an incredibly basic point.
mind you i still do enjoy knowing interesting facts.. reading books etc. they are mostly just things to consider or inspire. i'd rather have an oppinion than nothing at all. i still do a lot of what you say.. go with the flow, take what life hands to me.. but i try to use those things to an advantage. in little ways everyone has an interesting life.. whether that be a good or bad thing.. we all have our ups and downs and they're all different stories in little or big ways.
Get out of that "pity me...i'm stupid...nobody likes me" mentality, turn off the computer...sell your videogames....get some books....and FUCKING DO IT...dont bitch to us...get off your ass and make it happen.
well if you were human you'd have been through that stage before, and majority of people of who do, don't necessarily want pity. it's just the way they feel and it's better to get it out somewhere than to bottle it up inside and just feel worse. or if you're feeling useless and stupid, you don't really care whether it's out or not because to you, nothing can help.. so it's just something to do.
that kind of encouragement does work well sometimes. i know i'd rather get yelled at to get me motivated to do something myself than to get helped up and my head patted and sent on my way.
find a way to fight through your life. be strong and don't fall. you may think you've already fallen, that you're not strong enough to do anything, but that's a load of bull. if you had fallen, you wouldn't bother with ANYTHING, you'd either lie there and literally waste away or just kill yourself. you're still here UF, you may not think you're doing much with your life but you're still doing something. and that's usually a sign that you're something of worth.. or at least still strong enough to become something of worth.
you're kind of right to make everything your fault. at least.. almost everything in your life. we make our own choices, we think our own thoughts.. although every single experience and decision one makes, is never a fault. it's a choice, it's what happened or is going to happen, it's a step, it's a part of you. what you make of yourself before you die can be beneficial to anyone in some way, whoever you've been in contact with, you'll have been a part of what made them, just like everything and everyone that happens/happened to you, is a part of what made you.
i wish everyone would try or want to try to make something of themselves and their lives, but that's their choice. and whatever they choose to do, will never be useless. it can never not have an impact in some way.
that's just my thoughts on it.. if it made any sense to you.

I could have written a long, drawn out rant in this forum, but Unforgiven stole it from me. Fuck school. Fuck people.

I may be getting told I'm going nowhere in high school by other people in my grade now, but in all reality, most of them will drop out of college but in addition, they'll have student loans they have to repay on their shitty wages. Some kid last school year told me I had no future. This kid smoked so much pot he was practically retarded. I would be surprised if he would even remember when his college classes were. People like this make me not want to do good on purpose. Just so I can show them I'll be complete shit in school and still do better than them in life.

I was at a guidance meeting earlier this week where my English teacher, my guidance counselor, and my dad were all sitting at a table trying to motivate me to do better so I could graduate. Why? Who cares? My intelligence is completely overrated. I'm sick of being told I'm smart by authority figures. I'd rather be stupid so people would leave me alone. I can definetely relate to what you were saying about the group work. In the first week of school this year, I was in a class and we were separated into groups pretty quickly. I didn't want to drift over to a group. My teacher got so fed up that he ended up sending me to the office. I didn't say a word, I just got up and left. As I was leaving, some kid goes to me "Wow Mike, was it really that hard to just do something?" and the teacher goes "Trust me, I had him in biology two years ago, I know all about it". This kid was complaining to the teacher that he got a 55 on his project recently. "Oh boo hoo, I got a 55 on my project it's all your fault you big meanie"...suck it up and grow a dick. And when I had that teacher for biology, it was his first year teaching. You can't go acting like you've been around since the dawn of time just because you're not the new guy anymore. Ooh, it's your third year. Big shit.

Work is something I don't mind because I actually feel useful when I'm there. What I do helps other people. As you can tell, I work at a restaurant. Every time I clear a table, I help some more customers get to their seats quicker, and make the job easier for the hosts who are seating the people so they don't have to bus the tables themselves. Every time I ever turned in a homework assignment at school, I feel like I wasted my life. I wasted half an hour doing some crap writing essay to have a teacher not even read it and just put a check at the top of the paper. Nobody else saw my work. This doesn't motivate me for shit.

With that said, if I do go to college, I'll need at least a year off to regain my sanity from the hell that is public education.

I was excellent in school. I did not have to study, even in college, to get good grades. Why? because I remember everything I read. But I dont remember anything that is shown to me, say, step by step. That is why I want to be a teacher, because I can not do the doing of things. People who can retain by doing can have a good life. CL does things, he just does them, and does them right. So, if you dont carea bout history and math, so what? Lots of people did not, and do not.

You made a choice in school not to try harder, accept more. Now you are going to argue that it was the teachers who did not teach, or you who did not listen. Does it matter at THIS point in your life what happened five years ago?

Failure is a fact of life. Everyone fails. I have failed being a wife and sometimes in my life I have failed being a mother. I failed at being a daughter and a sunday school teacher. So what? I get back up, brush myself off, and start over. Try again, try harder. Fight that desire to roll over and die. Everyone rolls over. Dont be an everybody. Stand up for who you are, if not what you are.

Oh, waaaa. I dont have my HS diploma. I dropped out in tenth grade. They passed me to 11th, but fuck THEM. I HATE THEM. I stayed home, had my first born son. I worked to get past all of the fucking horseshit judgements that everyone passes on a teen age mom. I got my GED in two weeks. It was easy. I went to college. I was on the deans honor roll nearly two years running. Not because I am intelligent, but because I fought. I fought to give my children a better life. I fought for my family and I fought for myself. And I will continue to fight until someone puts a bullet in my head. I've been doing that since I was a kid.

i hated memorizing facts. you know why? because facts get you nowhere in the real world. who cares if the 100 year war didn't last exactly 100 years? who cares if an elephant's the largest land animal on earth? i don't care. it's useless... all of it. i find i can be happier if i'm un-informed. what difference can i make in this world? i am one voice among 6 billion. my opinion doesn't count. that's also why i choose not to vote. because i know nothing of political parties or their policies. my parents would want me to vote CHP (christian heritage party... yes, they're christian.) fuck that. i simply do not care. i just want to live my life as i want to live my life... i don't want to be dictated... pushed around... bossed around (though that is ineveitable, i'd have to say).
Nobody wants to be ignored or looked down on or pushed around. You should choose to do what is right for you. Not what THEY think is right for you. I hate it when people look at me and turn thier nose up. Yeah, bitch. Im 27 and I have a 9,8 and 5 year old. They are mine, and I am proud of them.

on a final note, i'm not normal... i'm not like most people who seem to care about their future... i'm different. i take whatever life hands me. i float from job to job, taking whatever i can get... if i become a street bum, so be it. i'm going to say this now... you're all witnesses (if you've read this far), so i can't blame anybody else... whatever happens, is MY fault. if i end up living on the street, it's my fault. if i end up living with my parents till i'm 45 (seems likely at this point), it's my fault. my fault for not wanting to go to college... my fault for being a jackass.
On a final note, being normal has nothing to do with how other percieve you. You make that choice to be less than what you want to be. If you wind up trolling in the park, you have nobody to blame but yourself. you are old enough to be passed the whining stage. You are smart enough to make decisions for your life. So what if you dont want to go to college? Im the only person in my entire family that went to college and graduated. You dont have to prove anything to THEM. but you should evaluate how you want to look at yourself, everyday when you wakke up. If you dont care about how you feel about yourself, then fuck it. but if you do, then everymorning when you wake up, you commit yourself to fighting the bullshit. You work harder, you fight longer, you take an extra job or start looking for a better one. You geht off your fucking ass and TRY. If you fail, so what. Everyone fails. There is no perfection, no normal, no smarter. There is only you and who you want to be.

I learn stuff better from doing, rather than writing and remembering. It's called Kinesthetic Learning.

I hated revising stuff. Pissed about at school, slipped from A to E's like you did. I came out with 6 GCSES when most achieve at least 10.

So I left school and did vocational, hands on courses. No exams, marked on coursework and ablity. Not how much shit you can cram in your head a week before the test.

They kicked me off Graphics and I failed I.T at school. Now I'm a Graphic Designer.

School the best days of your lives? My arse. Maybe the social aspect, and the nothing actually matters mentality, cheaper trainers and half price cinema tickets. But you get that again when your old.

Everyone fucks up at least once in their lives. I think its okay to toil in obscurity for awhile longer until you get pissed off enough to do something about it.

To this day, I still say I do not care if I ever become homeless.
I've been a successful corporate sell out.
I've been everything from an A student to a drop out.
I'm currently going for a degree which doesn't guarantee me anything other than heavy financial burdens.
But I realize at least, sometimes the choices I made were not the easiest.
And now that I'm older, all I'm concerned about is working smart & not hard.

About my initial statement: I think ppl percieve themselves as complete fuck ups all their lives until they allow themselves some credit.
