First Day Of School Sucks

Day 253/365: Well, in fact, all days of school suck…

I’m so old, I can’t even remember my first day of school. I vaguely do, of course, but not many details pop into my mind. I remember it was cold and grey outside, which is probably why I don’t have a good memory of it. I hate cold weather and I kind of block those days out of my awareness.

Today, school started all over the country. I went to my high-school to take some photo for the online publication I work with. It was nice, but I didn’t feel like I’m missing school. Somehow, I left high-school and then college thinking this type of mechanical education is simply not good for me.

I am not a fan of learning something by reading it over and over again and then have somebody test me on that text. That’s not education. That is testing a student to see if he or she has a good memory. There are no skills you’re testing as an educational system, but just asking the testee to see if he can remember stuff. This is how Romanians learn in schools.

That’s sad, to be honest. It’s no wonder more high-schoolers were in pubs and coffee shops today rather than with their classmates and teachers. Nobody likes school. They just go to school because they have to, not because they are excited about learning cool things. There’s nothing to learn, there are just old lessons you have to memorise and then write on a piece of paper during the exams. That’s school. That’s sad.
