Work harder. Study harder. Everything’s being tighten up in these days. It’s like you have to have strength to do more and more, when in fact people haven’t gotten any stronger over time. We can’t do more than we are capable of, but working and school life don’t seem to accept this. Why does it have to be this way?
The world is so hectic in these days. The news spread in matter of seconds and knowledge is one click away. I’m in the second grade of high school now and when I look at the third graders (third year is the final year) I just shake my head. Most of the time they seem very passive, tired and exhausted. Only a quarter of students go to University straight after high school. The others either have a gap year or they didn’t get into any school. I have a few friends who have had a gap year, and they have told me that they just want to rest and maybe work and get some money. A gap year can extend to many years, because high school sucks all the energy.
Why is it that, when you get older, everything around you tightens up a notch? Is it because they want to prepare for the working life? Or is it because they want the best for you? Is it because of the responsibility you have to learn to carry?
Now you may think that she is just lazy and that she just doesn’t want to grow up. Well, it’s not true. I actually think it is important to take responsibility over your school work. But I don’t think it is right to squeeze everyone like this, and just to see who will survive. What do we learn about this all though: Life is a competition.
Tuesday November, 29th: this semester’s second exam week is over and I have only this afternoon and evening to breathe. In other countries people have like one-week holiday after exams, but No Not in Finland.
Wednesday November, 30th: new period (3.) starts.
BTW, Christmas is almost here. I don’t even see it coming. I was like huh, what Xmas? No snow, yet. Happy run up to Xmas!
Happy (still not quite)
Loved (love me a little bit more)
Appreciated (make me feel special)
Alive (hanging on)
Worthy (making a difference)
Beautiful (if genes always followed the plan I could be the last blonde)
Funny (I guess you were forced into appreciating my jokes)
I’m everything I am because you loved me
The Song of the day
