Late night thoughts or something…
Alright, this is pretty much just going to be me saying everything that comes through my mind at this time. I’m probably going to rant a lot about how people annoy me and blah blah, but whatever.
I’ve been thinking about this all day, and it’s been bugging me for a while. School. I don’t know why, but this year the actual school part of school has flown by. Half of the stuff we’ve done, in every class, is just review. My ELECTIVES are the hardest classes I have. Everything we’ve done in MATH even has been way too easy. Before I used to have trouble with math, because I’m no good at arithmatic. I haven’t memorized my times tables and I can’t do long division worth shit, but if you give me some equation that takes the rest of the class half an hour to do, and we all get calculators, I’ll get it done in about five minutes. I don’t know why it is, but I seem more comfortable with numbers and letters than graphs, tables, and pictures. I’ve always iked writing better than drawing, so I guess this makes sense? I’m not sure why, but when we move out of the “easy” stuff, which was for me harder, I start to find things easier. So over the year math class has become progressively easier. Maybe I’m overthinking things, I tend to do that, but whatever.
Another thing that annoys me recently is people who aren’t trying. I try not to discriminate against people who aren’t as smart as me, but these people COULD learn, if they FUCKING TRIED. For instance, in language arts class we were talking about a book the class was reading, and one of the kids asked “Who is spaz?” … Spaz, my dear, sweet child, IS THE MAIN FUCKING CHARACTER OF THE ENTIRE FUCKING BOOK. That brings me to… language arts class. Our teacher is very nice, she tries, she does really, to teach us what we need to know. I can imagine if she’d be frustrated when the ENTIRE CLASS is SCREECHING LIKE HOWLER MONKEYS THAT ARE ON FIRE, but she isn’t. If everyone starts screaming and talking and being assholes,she’ll quietly say “Please be quiet and sit down…” Of course, no one listens. I believe it is her first year teaching, and I hate the people in my class for being such dicks.
This brings me to my last point, which I think is a serious issue, especially here in Utah. I have nothing against mormanism, I am not a mormon, but some of my friends are, and I can respect that. I simply think that mormanism has a major influence on the inherent homo-phobia that seems to be here in Utah. It seems that “Gay”is a common insult, and that being a homosexual automatically makes you a horrible person. I am lucky enough to have been raised by my wonderful parents who taught me that just because Homo-sexual people are different doesn’t mean they are wrong. I personally am not a homo-sexual, but I have nothing against them. I don’t think it’s my business who wants to do what with whom. I simply despise people who outright say “Gay/lesbian people are inherently wrong because they are against god” OR WHATEVER. And they won’t word it like that, it’ll sound more like this… “GAY PEOPLE ARE WEIRD AND WRONG!” I’m sorry if this is a touchy subject for whoever happens to be reading this, but if you think homo-sexuality is wrong, keep it to yourself, and don’t shove it down everyone elses throats, and maybe consider putting a bit more study into things before you say them.
I think that’s all… I don’t really know why I said all of this. Make no mistake, I don’t hate utah, I don’t hate the people in my school (No matter how much I fucking say so) and I don’t hate my teachers. That’s all mister/missus whoever is reading this right now.
