Woow if these are not wise words that depicts how society molds our destiny or our perception of how life has to be led…then we have all been walking through our path blindly. Live to do what you love and not what others have been telling you what’s right. Entrepreneuship movement lives on. Our writer Michelle Vrana has written a great extract inspired by this video!
A Word on EducationLike most university students I’m sure you’ve had that moment in time when you’re looking at the criteria of a 4 page paper that’s due at 8:30am the next day, and you’re cursing yourself for starting it so last minute. I for one, have definitely been in that position. I’m a procrastinator. I’ve also discovered that in most of these situations I tend to ask myself why I even have to do it. Why do I have to write this paper when it has nothing to do with my program? Why do I have to spend countless hours researching topics that don’t have any relevance to my program of study?
Realizing you want to pass your class and eventually graduate, you finish the paper and succeed in handing it in on time. A week goes by and you receive your mark-a C. Well this is just great. A C. What are your parents going to say? What will your future employer say? Are you failing at life!? No. Calm down, breathe, this is just one mark out of hundreds that you will receive throughout your education. But there is one thing to be said, why do we have to write about and study those things that that are absolutely uninteresting to us? Why does our educational system force us to learn in such a specific manner? Where is the lenience? A London, England native, Suli Breaks, raises the issue of the educational system’s means of testing students on how well they preform on exams- “but not all people preform well in exams so why are they made out to feel like they are dumb?”
There is more to be said about this topic, for example, the fact that our society is led to believe that education is the only route to success. People learn in many different ways; school might be good for some, but what about those who learn better through hands on experiences, or apprenticeships? Why are they disregarded? And why don’t they gain the same value as someone who graduated with honours from McGill University? There’s also the whole notion of street smarts and book smarts. You may have As lining your grade sheet, but can you change your tire? Or build a patio? There are other ways of moving forward in life, so don’t worry about that C, it will not depict the rest of your life.

The most difficult one minute of our Elementary childhood.
omg this stressed me out like no other
Quick, do all the zeros and then comeback for the rest.
no you know what it was a goddamn race
it was all about being the kid who flipped their paper over first and then looked at all your peers as they hear the flutter of paper
so much power
The teachers used this as a weapon to pin us against eachother
the legal hunger games
