SO. The start of my first semester at a university:

1) The bookstore bleeds roughly $300 out of my veins (after we paid the full tuition), including up to a 200-page book with microscopic font size written by my own professor pertaining to something I could not give even half a shit less about. And I couldn't get this until four weeks before the final exam.

2) The health department makes me do about six or seven miles of walking all over campus just to get my records taken care of, since the buildings I had to go to were so far away from one another.

3) The theater department screws me over for my practicum by double-scheduling my activities.

4) My adviser, after last visiting told me that I had enough hours to graduate promptly, now tells me I have to cram in another year, mentioning classes I had to take that she didn't before.

5) I was placed on hold for enrolling next semester because of a stupid mandatory alcohol education course everyone at and under 22 had to take online, and a bunch of chimpanzees wearing ties and glasses were in charge of the records.

:iconimrlynotimpressedplz: Fuck the school system, I'd rather get my education in a cave.

I don't really mind learning... I mean, some stuff (well actually a lot) seems quite tedious to me but yeah. But for the most part, I don't like school. I just hate how they pile on all this homework and expect you to get it done in like one night and you also have to study for tests and sleep a good amount so you aren't super tired when you wake up at 6 AM the next day... Oh and let's not forget some of those annoying people you encounter in school, like the obnoxious/judgmental kids in your classes.

School is a chance to do whatever the hell you want while not having any REAL worries in life. Going to UCSD is amazing.

American school system is a joke. At least in my state, tests are the ONLY thing that matters. They almost got rid of Art & Music classes this year (of course sports are never threatened...) and as an 8th grader, I have almost no opportunity for art classes. I had to quit chorus for the chance to take art every other day for 30 minutes a day for one semester. Our teachers are forced to "teach to the test", rather than teach to spark interest, creativity, and actual learning! I love learning, but I can't say I'm doing much of it in school.

I enjoy school, and seeing all my friends, and my teacher rules, but I am a very bad sleeper and my lack of sleep gets in the way a lot with my learning. I try my best but most of the time I'm half asleep by the end of the day. It reflects poorly on me and a lot of other teachers give me the "You don't try hard enough" look. :(

Bragging sucks but here goes. I'm in the midst of research papers and exams in university, but a remark my teacher made in class has led me to conducting my a research paper of my own. It's difficult to work on it with so much else at hand, but I feel like this independent learning could prove to be very useful. Learning's one of the best things about life, don't let teachers ruin it.

I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with school. I love to learn. I pay attention in class, I get straight As and I study and do all my homework. I love to figure things out, and absorb new information. But I also hate how long school is, how boring it is, and all the homework and projects. I dislike how crowded it is and how some of the people there are so terrible. I'm a huge procrastinator, so I stress myself out getting work done at the last minute. I feel like the teachers or the people who make the curriculum don't even try to make it more interesting or enjoyable. I like it sometimes and can't stand it others. There are days when I can't wait to get to school, and days when I just want to stay home in the morning, I want to go home all day, and I am so happy and relieved to be home when the day is over. It all depends.

I enjoy education but the tracking school system is a nightmare! I had an advanced math class at one point I remember how simple and easy they took the subjects. Now I'm back in standard math class, it's fast paced and nearly half the class doesn't get whole chapters. Such a waste of minds.

I honestly love learning things, I'd like to learn about physics, biology, chemistry, astronomy, psychology, lots of different languages, recording films, ear of music, how to draw more realistic, etc. Well, I'm aware of that I can't do all of them at the same time, but I think it's so sad that I can't study more than about three of them in the current school system...

I love school.
I actually really do.
Maybe I'm lucky, because we have quite a good school system in Germany, but really, There's nothing I look forward more to than school.
I'm always hungry for new information, and even the subjects I didn't like last year, this year we got new, I believe more qualified techers, who challenge you intellectually and don't just force you to learn.
I guess everything got a little more free, because now we're old enough to decide for ourselves if we wan't to stay in school and it's our responsibility.
And in school you see your friends and meet new people everyday.
School is really my second home and I'm not planning on ever giving it up.
I'm going to finish school and then I'm going to university and study teaching for my two favourite subjects, Biology and Chemistry, in fact, I'll probably start Chemistry next semester, with a junior study.
So. School is almost my favourite part in life. And not at last because of my cute chemistry teacher :meow:

I've been to a range of different schools, each with it's own problems. Though the bulling was always common wherever I went, it was partly due to people not accepting my quiet personality.

Anyway, the school I'm currently attending is best by far. out of all the schools I've attended this has been the first school to figure out I have a mild form of ADD. Thanks to them identifying this, life has become much easier I never feel like I'm bullied and get along with many people and have a friends to prove it. Although there are many problems with the school, none as bad as the others.

It bugs me when students in my school complain and say "God, this school is awful" or "I wish I was in that other school, I bet its better". They have probably been at that school for most of their life (excluding primary school and such) how do they know that the school is terrible?

I voted "Loved it", but what I'm actually talking about is university - I love it!
But when I was at school, I used to hate it, because I was very unmotivated and studying 10 subjects at once made for a disaster. Thankfully, right now I'm able to focus fully on my language study, since that's what I study in university - no math, no physics, nothing that makes my brain go Poof! :D

Not heaven, exactly, but I must say that it was worth the 12 years of school. :D The problem with school is that you are forced to study too many subjects, half of which don't interest you and never will, and you will forget them the minute you graduate - for me, that was math. Thankfully, I was able to learn to enjoy physics and biology and chemistry - ah, that is only possible when you understand them, and I had a lot of people helping me.
But yeah, the cool thing with university is that you choose what to study (even though there will always be some weird and stupid subjects :D )

Algebra is not that useful.
Honestly how useful is knowing that (2x - 7p) + (6p - 3x) is -1x + -1p?!?!

If I can chime in: it's really not useful, but it's necessary to know algebra in order to use calculus, and calculus actually is useful. If there's a real-life problem that can be solved with straight algebra, chances are there's an easier way to work around it... but the engineering problems you can solve with calculus really couldn't be solved any other way. Suffice to say, theoretical mathematics is an entirely different beast.

Well, I suppose that it comes up in physics here or there :D I'd have loved to study physics if I wasn't crap at algebra (and geometry too, actually).
What sucks is that 1 out of 25 people is interested in physics and is actually able to understand algebra. The other 24 just pray for a miracle xD .
