The School System Sucks – Here’s Why
“School is mandatory, a social norm, something that everyone must go through”, says anyone EVER! I get it, education is important but hello! So is my happiness.
Growing up school has to be where most of my worst memories were created. School is the place where I got rejected by a shitload of boys, where I created and then lost too many friends, where I experienced my first heartbreak, and so many more stupid shit.
In school I experienced peer pressure, by friends to steal, and to do bad things that still haunts me ’till this day. (I wholeheartedly apologize to the two girls I spat on in elementary school 😬 😞) I was never really a bad girl, I was those types of girls that didn’t want to disappoint anyone, so I would try to do anything to get on people’s good side even though it meant doing something I would never dream of.
In school I was bullied (mostly by boys) and it sucked. I was always made fun of, and I felt like everyone always hated me. I met these 2 girls who were like best friends and they were considered “popular”and I wanted to be friends with them so I started trying to hang out with them a lot more but only ended up looking like an embarrassing little pup following around its owners who didn’t even enjoy its company.
Nevertheless I don’t quite regret those moments because in the end I learned a lot about life and figured out what not to do and what to do, what to tolerate and what not to. Those memories will help me survive in the future but you know what won’t? Learning about the cell of a plant and how its shape differs from human and animal cells.
School dropped a lot of shit on me, they gave me a bunch of bullshit I didn’t even want to learn and forced me to learn it, and pressured me into believing that if I don’t get an 🅰 on the assignment I was doomed and seagulls will end up eating my remains on a beach.
School is literally the most stressful part of my life, and I’m still so upset I had to go through it. I wouldn’t wish this hell on anyone: Staying up late trying to finish your homework, falling asleep at 2 in the morning only to wake up in another 4 hours, skipping on breakfast to make it at 8:00am, sitting in class only to have a horrible realization that the homework that caused you to only have 4 hours of sleep is sitting at home on your desk and your teacher doesn’t “buy” your story when it’s in fact very true. (Also reminds me of the time when my little sister was a baby and actually ate my hw… True story)
I can list a million and one reasons why I hate school, I don’t think my family cares too much about how mentally and physically draining school is for me. 🙄 I genuinely hate school. Like you can ask anyone who knows me if I like school they will tell you… I ABSOLUTELY HATE IT! My parents made me go to college, so this is where I am. In school. For another dreadful 2 years. If my mother told me today that I can drop out, she wouldn’t even have to finish her sentence and my book-bag would’ve flown 10 flights down from the roof of my building carrying all of my textbooks, then I would’ve drowned that shit, then set it on fire and evilly watch it burnnnnnnn! 😈🔥
Everyday I wake up and drag myself to hell. It’s type draining and annoying and caused me depression twice. I go to therapy because of this bullshit. I see other people so excited to go to school and happy and proud and shit, it’s like please give me some of that positivity. I really wish I could be happy to go to school, I really do, that way my mom would be happy about it. (As I said I hate disappointing people) It would be nice to make my mom proud especially since my older sister didn’t finish college.
I’m not trying to discourage anyone from going to school, everyone feels differently about things and I feel like school suck. If you love school keep loving it, do your thing! I just know that school isn’t “MY” thing.
