Every now and then you will get a day in school where you are swamped with homework from all of your teachers. If you are crazy and take 7 AP classes, then you deserve it. But if you're like me, taking classes I am expected to be taking, then you probably ask yourself, "What did I ever do to them? Do they plan this?" As I type this after doing all homework under the sun, the answer seems like an obvious "Yes."
Who in God's name makes you go through all countries in the world to find literacy rates, GDPs, Educations, and life expectancies to figure out everyone's GDI? Why not just make it easier on us and tell us to find the GDI? Seriously, man. Instead of just looking up the GDI of countries, I'm stuck wondering why Cameroon doesn't have an applicable literacy rate on the World Factbook and why I can't just slap a 4 on f*cking Niger. And then you have me coloring in a map to show the statistics of my findings. Why did I have to record a chart if I was going to put the same shit on a f*cking map!? Stupid Human Geography teacher...
And then my English teacher makes me try to understand whatever the hell Transcendentalism is. All I got from it was that a couple tree huggers back in the day were also stuck up and hypocrites, but that apparently doesn't get you full credit on assignments. Seriously, whoever this Thoreau guy is must have had an impressive house, because that's what he wrote about, and that's what I have to read. He builds a f*cking house using other people's tools and preaches about self-reliance. F*ck you, Thoreau. Get that plank out of your eye before getting the speck out of mine.
Do I know what coterminal arcs and radians are? Yes. Do I know how this information will in any way help me in my future? No. When will I ever
have to look at something at my job and say, "That
is a coterminal of 3.4 radians?" Calculus is said to be really important to learn, but honestly I'm looking for a job in the soft sciences so don't rob my sleep over this sh*t, thank you.
Homework is essential to help us retain what we learn in school, but when teachers gather in the boil room in their black cloaks, discussing with Satan when they should assign homework assignments consecutively to screw over students, it begins to be a bit much. So my message to teachers it this: You remember being a student, right? Then f*ck off with your useless information gathering and translating shit! I like my sleep. If you don't remember being a student, then you shouldn't be teaching. And if you are like my teachers, knowing what it's like being a student and still
assigning a college level thesis with everyone else, then I'll be seeing you in Hell, then, won't I?
Stay edgy, and have a nice time, I'm going to (try going to) sleep.
"Day-o! Me say day-o! Daylight come and me wan' go home."
