I absolutely HATE AND ABHOR high school, especially mine.
The people there are absolutely immature. They make me want to stick a pencil up my nose until it touches my brain, and swirl it around.
Oh, the humanity. All of the gossip and drama makes me sick. One person says this, another says that. Then it starts to spread around like a disease, then sooner or later, you have a fight on your hands. And the two-facers!
And the education is so slowwwww. I'm in the Running Start program (I think it's only in Washington. In your junior year and senior year, you have a choice of studying at a community college for free, or you can stay in high school as a full time student), and I am so glad that I joined.
In my junior year of high school, I decided to take a Pre-cal class at my high school. Bad mistake. The previous year, I had asked my math teacher whether it was a good idea for me to take my math class at the comm. college, or in high school (I was in a huge dilemma. I was a 4.0 student and was deathly afraid of losing my 4.0). My math teacher advised me to stay in high school. He believed that I was a sharp kid, but that I lacked the necessary knowledge to handle the work at the comm. college.
So, in my junior year, I took his class for Pre-cal. My gosh. He was moving SO SLOW. He would go through one topic, then have to repeat it again. The class was just so unattached. They never paid attention to his lectures (which, by the way, were very informative and thorough), and when it came to test time, they failed the test. Therefore my teacher would have to re-cover all of the information. He literally went over factoring polynomials for 3 months.
Sick and tired of his slow pace, I enrolled at the local comm. college for winter and spring pre-cal. We moved so fast. Even though the high school class had a 4 month head start, my comm. college class caught up and then went beyond the curriculum in 3 months.
Now for my senior year, I am going to go full time at my comm. college, with only orchestra as my high school class. I want to get away from the immaturity and as Pel stated, self absorbed people. I enjoy the comm. college environment much more. There are no silly people that act ridiculous, and no more loud mouths that interrupt my learning experience.
Gah. I'm not even done venting. There's so much I want to say. I don't even know if I made any sense or not, but it's great to be able to get it off my chest.
