oh my fucking god this is so true
This. I always had panics attacks when I had to do a speech in front of a class and I only ever had one teacher u sweatband coz she was the same when she was in school the rest were just like I don’t care it’s part of the curriculum “no special exceptions for your fucked head” literally word for word for my grade 12 teacher. I wanted to kill her literally.
This is my school life rolled into ones post. I cry almost everyday after school because it’s just too hard.
this is too true, and it saddens me. I cry at night over the amount of work I have to do. And not only do I have a lot of work, but I have a mental disorder, and sometimes I just can’t do it. But they don’t get that so I end up failing. And it’s just really stressful.
Am I the only one who’s over this?!
Wahhh, homework is the equivalent of slavery because I already had to sit in school for 6 hours without pay. First of all, 6 hours is not even close to a full work day for us big kids. I worked ten hours tonight, and fuck me if I only got to sit down three times, for a total of 30 minutes. I’ll choose high school any god damned day over that. I’m not even going to get into the fact that you’re comparing FORCED LABOR to PUBLIC EDUCATION. Ungrateful children, do you not see what you have?!
Oh boooo, I have social anxiety so don’t make me speak in front of the class. Dude, nobody likes that shit. Oh, it makes you sick? Go puke then and get it over with. You’ll feel better. Then, get your ass to the front and do the exact same thing your classmates did and will do after you. I promise, it’s not intended as a form or torture…it’s practice. You know…for the rest of your life. When you’re 30, you don’t get to use your social anxiety as an excuse to not talk to people, or not give a presentation. If you plan on avoiding speaking in front of people for the rest of your life, you’d might as well plan on being a silent and celibate monk because EVERY career is going to require you to have an ability to communicate. Okay, it’s great that you like to listen and take notes. But you kind of, sort of, really fucking need to participate. Life, bitches.
I’m being dead serious. What could you possibly have better to do with your time at 15 than be in school, potentially learning? Oh, you’d rather listen to music? Play video games? Hang out with friends? Guess what. NO PART OF LIFE IS LIKE THAT. Nobody gets to just go out and relax all day, every day.
Granted, I would absolutely assert that schools should be figuring out ways to engage students more. Learning is potentially very fun, and curriculum should totally revolve around getting kids excited. Also, now that we’ve learned quite a bit more about human intelligence since their introduction, things like standardized testing should be done away with.
Schools need to be updated, and changes need to be made to improve the learning experience. But you know what DOESN’T need to change about school?! School does NOT need to dumb itself down or make itself easier…particularly not for the sake of whiny, entitled, play-the-victim teenagers.
Quit acting like babies. Everyone feels like you do. Go talk to a counselor if you really feel your anxiety is out of control, because there are few things you do in high school that you won’t continue to do out of high school. Woodshop may be an exception.
