Truth: School Sucks

It was the best of time, it was the worst of times. School Sucks I say.

Growing up I hated school. I can remember when I was younger, probably in the 2nd grade I had a countdown to how many years left I had to attend school. I could not handle the fact I had 10 more years of school and perhaps college.

I did not enjoy school. I was bored. I often found it difficult and I could not stand the structure of it all. I could not stand the homework. I could not stand being told what to do. Now I was not a rebel, and I didn't misbehave. In fact I lived in fear of authority (cops, teachers, nuns, priests, coaches) for most of my school years [Yes some of that still lingers out of habit].

It's not that I didn't want to learn. I did. It's not that I didn't have the drive or discipline. I did. It's just I wanted more. I day dreamed too often. I stared out the window always wondering how I could apply what I was learning.

I struggled in some classes, and others I excelled at. Most of all I was average though. Did I really care? No I can't say I ever did. If I am measured by that, so be it.

What was I supposed to do, fake it?

I always envied those who made it big or successful on their own. Those who had the street smarts and intelligence to succeed in life. The thought of going to school and all that training to work for someone else was always scary and not too inviting. Yet that's the way of success for the most part in America. Someone smarter than you, hires you because you are smart. You make them money, he gives you a piece of the have your 2.5 kids and live happily ever after.

I never took teachers (still don't) too seriously as much as I feared them. Not that they weren't qualified, but how could they really teach me when I was just another number? They were just passing along the info over and over. No disrespect to the profession at all. I think it's noble and some of my friends are great teachers. It's the system that bothers me, not the teachers. The government is going to tell me history? The government is going to tell me about U.S. history but omit the truth? Come on.

I learned more out of school and after school then I did in school. Maybe I'm just wired wrong? Maybe I needed a school for my own speed without the structure.

Maybe I just need to grow up. Hey, go learn something.
