So lately something has been really pushing me to the edge. Especially now that I'm filling out all these effing applications. I really freaking hate it when a conversation like this happens to me:
PersonWhoHasBeenBrainwashedbytheUSEducationSystem: So what's your GPA?
I mention my GPA, which is pretty good if I have told you
PWHBBUSES: Are you taking Honors classes?
Me: Uh, no.
PWHBBUSES: WHY?!?! WHY!!!!! YOU SHOULD HAVE TAKEN HONORS CLASSES YOU WOULD HAVE DONE WELL IN THEM!!!! IT WILL SHOW COLLEGES THAT YOU CAN HANDLE COLLEGE WORK!
Well, here's what pissed me out of this whole conversation. Last time I checked, high school is supposed to prepare you for college. Oh and what about the kids who need more help with school because they're not as motivated or whatever. Why is it that we treat all the smart/AP/IB/Honor Roll students well while we treat the other kids who need more help with school like crap, instead of having the smarter kids help those kids who need more help? This would make a good Penn and Teller Bullshit episode, but that's beside the point. Can honors classes really make a kid a better person? What about their writing ability/extracurriculars/volunteer work/grades regardless of honors classes or not? Whatever happened to that? I am just really fed up with people telling me that I should have taken honors classes just because I have a pretty good GPA, so what? Are all the kids in honors classes necessarily smart? What's the point of having everyone who has a good GPA and putting all of those kids in all honors classes, what if they do okay in regular classes but when you put them in honors classes they stink? Well?

Yesterday was the first day of October and we have only two more months left in the year 2008 and it will soon be the year 2009. I will hopefully graduate from high school and move on to college. The economy is just wack, although it has been wack for the past few years. I am almost done with my college applications and I need to finish up my essays. Essays are evil. But I'm almost there! It's one of the reasons why I haven't been updating as frequently, that and because of all this homework. I WILL avoid senioritis.
I'm going to go see Tina Turner in concert this Saturday and I am excited. I am also looking forward to Halloween. I am also very much enjoying this weather. Life is really great right now, college applications are a pain; that will soon be all over and receive acceptance letters and all that jazz. I will hopefully finish one of my essays tomorrow to get things over with and I will go now and finishing reading the book I need to read for my English class. Later folks!
