So, last night I had this dream where I was a pimp or something because I had talked to one of my friends about pimps earlier. My entire dream consisted of me trying (and miserably failing) to pick up attractive girls, such as Cute Cheerleader from economics class. WHY am I a loser even in my own dreams!? Hahaha!
My history teacher got into a rant today. I'll get to that in a minute because I have quite the rant of my own in response. First I want to talk about how much it breaks my heart when FCG calls herself fat and ugly, because she is SO not fat and ugly. She was talking again about how she thinks she needs to lose weight and also about how ugly she felt today. :(
FCG: I said I wasn't gonna come to school looking so disgusting this semester... I can't believe myself today.
Me: What? You don't look disgusting! You NEVER look disgusting!
FCG: Ohh, yes I do!
Me: Pretty sure you don't.
FCG: Well, you can't say I'm not fat.
Me: But you aren't!
FCG: You just can't tell because of these school shirts.
Me: You are never fat, and you are never disgusting-looking. End of story.
Is she the skinniest girl in the world? No, but she's not anywhere close to being fat, either. She's average weight. I compliment her every day, but she always has low self-esteem. I want to make her feel pretty... I just don't know how to because she doesn't even accept compliments half the time. All of the things she hates about her appearance and stuff are just part of what makes her FCG, so I think they're cute. I just hate how much she seems to hate herself! :'( I wish I could somehow fix it.
Anyway, yes, the history teacher. Today, she ranted about how teachers in America today suck. (Oh, boy, I'm sure you can just taste that delicious hypocrisy already.) According to her, if teachers in America don't get better, the country will fill up with non-patriots. Umm... I don't see how the two are heavily related, really. I mean, you can be patriotic and have had shit teachers in high school, and the inverse is true too. Her logic confuses me a bit. That's not the best part of this, though. The best part? After she had finished ranting, someone asked if she graded the previous night's homework. Her response? "No... I don't get paid enough to do work every night like that."
Umm, excuse me? Well, maybe I don't learn enough in your class to justify always doing the shitloads of homework you assign every night, Mrs. History Teacher. Quite honestly, I care more about finishing this cat drawing than I do about anything school-related, so going by your logic, I should just drop out. After all, I don't learn enough to justify doing it! I seriously only suffer though this bullshit because employers won't take me seriously if I don't, and if I dropped out, they apparently wouldn't let me get my full driver's license. (I think they might even take away what I have now. Not sure, though. Although I don't quite get why they do that... Wouldn't you need to be able to get to your job?) I'll be honest with you, woman, I don't give a damn about half the actual content of the classes I have to take! If I hate it, I forget everything except the basics by the next year anyway.
I want to be a journalist. Besides things like English classes, nothing that will help prepare me for that was even offered to me until this year, and I've been in school for what, about 11 years now, counting pre-kindergarten? And yet I've had to take years and years of things I DON'T like that WON'T help me achieve this goal. Why? I'm not learning things that will help me, so why stay, Mrs. History Teacher? In my state, one can legally drop out of school at age 16. I'm 16. The low job chances and the driver's license issue are really the only things keeping me from hitting the road.
Ahh, got a little carried away there with a rant of my own... But do you know why education in America sucks, Mrs. History Teacher? It sucks because they hire people like YOU. You did nothing but sit on your ass the entire first semester, and yet you have the audacity to launch into such a hypocritical rant. Do you have anything even remotely brain-like in your head, and if you do, why don't you try using it for once? If I go to school for the reasons I listed above, then you need to do your fucking job because you do get paid at least a little to do it. (Also, if you care about money so much, WHY are you a teacher, Mrs. History Teacher?)
She pisses me off so much. Sooo much. She says something dumb just about every time she speaks. She's pretty racist sometimes, she guilt tripped Helpful Junior into going to this political rally thing against her will, she loudly announces and rants about her political and religious beliefs in class to a captive audience... Why is she allowed in public? Seriously, who lets this woman leave her house and WHY?
