So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do.

With the end of the school year approaching many teachers feel inclined to assign unreasonable amounts of busy work (but I won’t get worked up about that because I’m almost done with this ssht anyhow). My English teacher, for example, requires that all students create a presentation explaining four ideas on how to improve our educational system. Most of the presentations were half-assed and included arguments such as “start school later so kids are rested”, “get rid of homework” yata yata. But one particular argument I refuse to tolerate. Nearly every single student said, that to improve our educational system, schools should focus more on technology and teach students how to use that technology as it applies more to the real world. And every single time I wanted to stand up and ask “who in this room does not know how to use a fucking computer?”. We do not need to waste time and money for kids to fiddle around on ipads because it “applies more to the real world”. I think we can all agree that high school is NOTHING like the real world and therefore that argument is void. In my opinion, high school should focus on creating more well rounded individuals who know a Degas when they see one and locate Poland on the map, for god’s sake, or even tell the difference between The Eiffel Tower and the London Bridge (a story for another time). Schools need to start teaching kids how to read fucking books not how to press buttons or screens or whatever the fuck. Because in all honesty, living in Orange County where near every twelve year old owns an apple product, most kids know how to utilize technology a hell lot better than the teachers do from just what they learned at home. My school, for example, completely supports this technology/education shit and spent a fortune of our district’s tax dollars to provide an ipad for each student in each class. And you want to know how my classrooms made use of them? Most didn’t and others (my econ class) used these 500 dollar shits to display notes on each desk instead of having the teacher project the information on the board. Can someone please explain to me how the fuck that is helping my education? Now don’t get me wrong, computers and internet and google is tits but I strongly believe we don’t need instructors and school time to help students “move forward”. I can honestly write about this for pages but I’ll spare you all because I have other shit to do. so FUCK THE SYSTEM. and stay sick. peace.
