Day Fifty Nine
Yesterday I ranted about how soul destroying the education system is, and this morning I realized that I didn’t talk about how fabulous the education is, because it is. No matter how horrible we think it is, we all take it for granted and no-one appreciates it.
Do you get that feeling, at the end of the summer holidays when you’re bored? Bored of sitting at home, doing nothing, wasting your days away and you actually want to go back to school? Because I do. Imagine if there wasn’t school. Life would be like that and I don’t know what I’d do to spend my time. Without education, we couldn’t get a job to make money to enjoy our lives. Without education we wouldn’t be able to enjoy simple pleasures, like reading.
Yes, education is forced and it pressures children into achieving unrealistic dreams, but without it, we’d be nothing. Without that pressure, we’d go inside. There’s no challenge in staying at home and blogging close-ups of Colin Morgans cheekbones.
Without education we would all be exact replicas of each other, mindless zombies with no future. Without education, I wouldn’t be able to write this post and you wouldn’t be able to read it. We really do owe a lot to education, I suppose.
And I’ve made some utterly fantastic friends through school, friends that I hope to know for many years to come, friends that have helped me discover who I am and helped me get through some of the toughest times of my life. Without education, I wouldn’t have met them.
So, I suppose, this is a thank you to education. A thank you for taking away my social life and fun and a thank you for allowing me to meet friends that I can’t have a social life and fun with. Thank you for introducing me to wondrous information, thank you for teaching me patience, thank you for teaching me restraint and thank you for shaping me into the person that I am today.
Ten Reasons I Love Being Home
- There’s no extra tax on things (and no need to tip!).
- The food is amazing (I’ve always loved Australian food but I’m appreciating it again).
- I have a fully-equipped kitchen and all my furniture in my room.
- I know I’ll be sleeping in the same place for a while.
- Everything is so green (compared to Tucson at least)!
- People drive on the right (left) side of the road again.
- Everyone’s accents are surprisingly really hilarious to me (despite knowing that I sound a lot like them).
- It’s funny re-discovering the places I used to be so familiar with.
- People get my sense of humour much more readily.
- And (obviously) I’m surrounded by all my family and friends that I love!
Today’s my parents’ anniversary. 24 year together… It’s pretty crazy.
God knows they’ve had their fights and tiffs and everything else, but I’m so glad that they’re still together. My mom made my dad a card. He cried lol. Uhm. Other than that I had my Psychology exam today. It went pretty well actually. I’m quite proud of myself honestly. Managed to do everything in one day. Of course it helped that I’d done most of the course, before, but I feel good that I worked hard, studied a ton and got somewhere.
It was nice that family members and friends keep wishing me luck and asking how the exams went and all. Got back home, slept a bit, then there was cake cutting, my dad got a cake from his students at the journalism school, had biryani for dinner later on. Yum.
I have my English Language exam tomorrow. Thank god, I don’t feel like studying. I’m going to watch the movie that I’m going to review- Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. And I’m finishing reading Wuthering Heights tonight. In case a book review comes.
Varunica got into two colleges in the US. So that’s great. ugh I wish UK gave unconditional offers. But anyway. I shall do it. I think Buckingham is my dream college. Yesss.
Girls who have this constant need to be surrounded by guys are so annoying. Have a little self esteem. Totally not talking about anyone in specific.
Okay I go watch movie bye.
