i have been thinking about school and what i'm going to do about it
i hate my classes, and its not just like.. this semester, its like i have the same stuff next semester
like everything u have to take twice
american literature 1
american literature 2
british literature 1
british literature 2
i keep saying it but honestly i don't know what to do, what do u do when u've been putting in so much effort, money and time into something then u come to a point where u say "man i really hate this"
like if it was just this semester it would be one thing but this torture will go on if i don't do something because like i said the curriculum is built in a way to where u have to do things over and over
even after i take all those classes i just listed i will still have to do shakespeare 1 and 2
so i am at a place where i'm really wanting out
i don't want to read anymore of these stories
look this is what happened yesterday
we were supposed to read the end of the odyssey.. i read it
then the teacher quizzed us on it
i got all the answers right but i got a 65%
i went up to her after class and i was like why did i get such a bad grade?
she basically said none of my answers were "detailed enough"
but the question is open-ended.. like i don't understand why i would get a 65% for answering an open ended question correctly.. like ITS TOO SUBJECTIVE
for example.. reading has no visual.. so if 10 people read a story, 10 people have a different visual of the story in their head.. so how can u just mark all my answers wrong?
its like she asks a question, and i put down the correct answer.. but she will say "this was out of a possible 7 points but u only earned 4"
but that's an opinion
like if u literally want 7 different answers why not make 7 fill-in-the-blank questions?
here's a real example of my quiz:
question: "what happened when the men tried to shoot the bow?"
answer: "they were unable to string the bow"
and somehow that is out of 5 and i get 2 fcking points
I ANSWERED THE QUESTION CORRECTLY
she said "no, u should've indicated that it was ODYSSEUS' bow"
BUT THERE WAS ONLY ONE BOW IN THE STORY, WHY DO I HAVE TO SAY WHOSE IT WAS?! THERE WAS ONLY ONE IN THE STORY
that's like me telling my friend "hey see ya later, i'm going home" and my friend says "whose home are you going to?"
like wtf do u mean "whose home?" MY HOUSE U STUPID F*CK
this is what bothers me about this department of school.. its just dumb to me.. like seriously.. every answer is correct but since its not to ur liking i get a 65%
HOW IS THAT FAIR?
i feel like i have to think of something to get out of this because it affects my mood.. i have to pray a lot in order to not be angry
