I never wanted to enter university. I only agreed to it because it was the only way to get me to where I wanted - the media. Everyone's saying you need a degree for this and that, last time, going to university was a big thing. All the relatives would always be saying "Wah, your child in university ah?! So big liao (in Mandarin)." Which made me think very few people made it to university and that they were very, very smart people.
Guess I was wrong. Almost all my friends are going through, going to or have graduated from there and I was shocked by the sheer normacy of it. But, but... I thought... university was a RARE thing?! How come it's so common?! When my relatives and mother was pressing me to study, what I replied was, "Why must I conform to the norms of society?!?"
How the hell am I going to stand out amongst the tens of thousands with the same exact certificate? Why don't I hone my talents and improve my abilities (interests) and be better than other people at it so I will be different from the rest. Right?
University is an insitution where you want to further your education to a higher level to pursue more knowledge. Nowadays, they only wanna get enrolled for a degree/diploma so that they'll get high-paying jobs. MONEY, it's only about the money, people only care about $ka-chings$.
Well duh, people kill, hurt, cheat, beg and sell their souls for it. It's gotta be something important. I start getting all miserable and insane 'cus I start questioning why God created the whole universe but it doesn't help 'cus life is not a dream and dreams can't exist without life and complaining about it won't help or undo God's actions.
If God was omniscient and had fore-knowledge about and of EVERYTHING, why, oh why, did He make us knowing all of this would happen? The blessed enjoys life, the rich abuses it, the commoners work as slaves in the market and the poor suffers. If I'm not wrong, what I learned from Bible study is that God created us for company; to worship Him.
All this labor we are experiencing right now is because of the mistake Adam made. Let us all point our fingers to Eve the bitch who asked him to bite the forbidden apple now. Don't you wish sometimes that the Second Coming of Christ would be sooner? It's been like, over 2000 years now and life is becoming tedious.
If only it was that simple. When I was a kid I wanted to be a singer, then a veterinarian then an actress then a dancer. I remember telling my mom that when I was 4 or 5. Kinda true I say, I still love doing all of them. I love singing (although not well), animals, acting and dancing. How was I to know back then you needed a diploma and license for all that?
Like cutting my wrist is gonna bleed me money, urgh.
All the people that I have questioned admitted that university truly does suck and the only purpose they are studying was to be independent and to make LOADS of money. Not everyone of us have fathers who own hotels
I like what Paul said on MSN when I asked him about the topic.
Paulie - says:
its hard to intepret life
Paulie - says:
we just have live it
We or rather I waste so much time talking and thinking about stuff rather than actually doing it. Knowing the amount of time I woolgather makes me feel like throwing dildos to the asses who made life so systematic and domineering where all the evil monopolist walk like snobbish swaggers.
FFFFFFuuuuccckkkk yyyyooouuuuu. I will not be that teen who commits suicide 'cus I really wanna beat it. I wanna win over life and enjoy it to the fullest. I really do.
P/S: Some graduates don't remember anything they've studied either which rather defeats the point of education. They're not educated but obligated.
