Rant

Today as i sat in the library for hours upon hours working on a group project, I had time much time to sit and ponder the things of my life. And i came to realize that at this point in my life I have no motivation. All i want to do is sit and read a good book, or get a whole weeks worth of good sleep where I don't wake up stressed about work or some homework assignment, I want to not feel guilty about taking time out of my day to workout instead of doing homework and I want time to bake real meals, I'm sick of this microwave chicken nuggets crap and instant oatmeal. And whilst I was thinking all this, I realized that I have every right to be sick of school at this point in my life. Because to this day I've spent almost 18 of my past 22 years of life in school! That's insane! Now, I have nothing against learning, however I do have a lot against tests, and group projects and having to read a billion of pages a night and pop quizzes. i think that society could have figured out a better way to make kids learn as opposed to forcing them into it. I love to learn, I will glady go to the library and pick up a book on how the brain functions and greatly enjoy reading it while sucking in what it has to say, but when your grade depends upon reading X amount of pages a night, plus you have a billion other things to do, I don't like learning so much. So you know what college, give us a break, we have a lot to deal with.
