Yes… school sucks at times.

Teachers can be complete idiots with more control of your life then you’d ever want. Other students can make The Lord of The Flies seems like a bit of a vacation. There is a constant flow of boring assignments and then, when you least expect it, you get a flow of seemingly impossible assignments.

There are a lot of ways to handle this.

If you have the good sense then the best solution is to fool yourself into thinking you’re just failing to interpret the situation correctly. Sometimes your perspective on a situation can make it look a little ridiculous. If you think someone is doing something absolutely absurd then you probably just don’t understand why they’re doing it. If you had their perspective then you’d probably completely understand their decision making process… probably.

While you may feel bad when the jerk in class says some nasty comment about that something you’re sensitive about, you can take comfort in the thinking about how miserable that person must be to be spending so much time thinking about someone as boring as you. Do they really have nothing better to amuse themselves? You should probably buy them a book or something.

If you don’t have the good sense to convince yourself of this (and you happen to be like me) then you can always just learn to find amusement from it all.

Is your teacher giving you an insane amount of homework around finals time? Well, you should at least be able to laugh at the strangeness of the situation. It’s kind of like watching an old sitcom with cliched jokes you’ve heard told in different ways a thousand times. Sure… it’s not great but shucks, it feels good to laugh. So why the hell not?

Maybe you can change the world. Good luck with that. Until then, at least try to get a kick from it.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless imagine if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
