WHAT DO I FIND SOLACE IN?
MASSIVE SHOUT OUT TO MODERN HISTORY RIGHT NOW. MODERN HISTORY, YOU ARE MY LOVE. MY PASSION (ONE OF THEM). YOU ARE THE REAL MVP IN MY EDUCATION.
At least with Modern History, I’m learning in a comfortable, fun and happy environment. I have the liberty to talk to my friends, be myself around my teachers and actually enjoy the learning process surrounding the distinction between FDR and Hoover, for example. Modern was my saviour today.
I felt like ditching school after advanced English because, frankly, I hate the subject. I hate every bit of it. Literature has been ruined for me. I can’t watch a film without finding the bloody high angle camera shot. 1984 was ruined for me with shoddy teaching. Dead Poets Society was ruined for me. EVEN FREAKING REYNOLDS OH MY GOD. Texts that don’t have metaphors, won’t have metaphors because you want them to. For gods sake.
I can’t believe English, a subject I used to love and thoroughly look forward to, has become a subject I dread. Everything about it. The learning environment, what we learn. Everything. About 16 days til graduation and I cannot wait.
Today was a shit day. I hope you’re happy Advanced English. I’m now off to find the non existent metaphors in this book.
