How much I enjoyed school depended greatly upon the subject:

I didn't like being told what to write, so I enjoyed bending the rules in English courses to write about as absurd a subject as I could get away with for every assignment.

I enjoyed the law courses I took in college, and would possibly have majored in that instead of engineering were I to do life over. Which says a lot about how terrible a person I am.

Didn't care much for math despite taking enough levels of calculus to choke a horse. Physics classes, on the other hand, were awesome. Even when you start getting into the really crazy formulas involving bending time and light that make you feel like your brain is going to dribble out your ears as the professor fills six chalkboards with the solution to a single problem.

Eh, for me it feels more of a luxury than a necessity. If you can't afford them $400 textbooks, then you're basically wasting your time and won't learn anything from that class you're taking. Honestly, that whole idea of the "college life" feels just as fake as the "American Dream".
Nowadays, it's not as simple to get a job right after your Bachelors as it used to be, that simple piece of paper just doesn't cut it now. I hate to admit it, but whoever has connections has a better chance at landing a job that pays the equivalent of a job that requires a college degree, and it's a bonus for those with connections + degree.

School is nothing more than indoctrination. Especially history class "U.S. is the heroic invincible good guys, other counties and political systems are evil." LOL. Most other classes are vaguely useless, with teachers using books cos they barely know the material they're teaching. And the time my history teacher failed me cos I wrote my oral report in the form of a rap... what a bitch.
That being said, my biggest regret in my life is dropping out of high school. It set the precedent for two of my siblings following suit, and now none of us make much money.
So school sucks. It's stupid, pointless, brainwashing. But you gotta do it anyways. Cos, money.

On the other hand, I would say that one's time spent at school is relatively short compared to the rest of one's life. It's the only time that you're going to be able to communicate with so many kids your own age. There's also sports and other extracurricular activities that most will only be able to do competitively or not during school. School work might be hard and very, very pointless at times, but I urge everyone still in school to take a leap and join or make something in school.

As a side note, so it looks like I do what I preach. I joined wrestling in high school and will never try it again. Cutting weight and continuous strength training are things I rather not do again. Looking back, it was still a bunch of fun, and I met some great friends in the process.

I also started and was the president of my school's Anime Club, whoopie!

The one and only good part about it.

School Anime are great.
But going to school is just asking for unnecessary headaches.

Hmmm... 50/50. I love learning and socializing with people. But hated the stress and other things it brought me.

Eh, I think it's alright. I can love it sometimes and hate it other times. There's always a load of drama, though.


It's all part of the great circle of life ^_^


I just always hope the drama isn't about me, because then stuff gets said and people get hurt.
