Nothing else for me to learn

  1. May 21, 2005 #1
    I'm finally out of high school! I've been waiting for this for a long time because I realized that this year I have maxed out the school's curriculum and have come to the realization that there is nothing else for me to learn at this dreadful government institution that seems to be well known for bureaucratic inefficiency (graduation practice for a solid week, lots of wasted time all over the place I won't even begin with it) in practically every single manner :tongue2:.

    This entire HS experience was extremely annoying, classes being dumbed down, not being able to push myself further because of lack of resources (or teachers in my case, since I technically had no physics teacher the entire year), bureaucratic runaround (it took particularly long to get any form signed and turned back in), and dealing with those hyperactive "I-dont-want-to-learn-anything-anymore" students who seem to always be the first ones to scream things out during any ceremony for their own pleasure and who really are only holding everyone else up.

    At least it is over. Since I have already taken a few college level classes already (which were extremely fun no doubt, or at least fun in my sense of the word, of which I have an extremely strange definition of fun), I don't find myself particularly worried so long as I maintain the pacing that I usually do when approaching a particular course and keeping my interests and maintain a passion, etc.

    Hmm... *isnt exactly sure what to say next*.....

    So which college are you going into?

    It's wonderful that you did everything you could your senior year, it must be a wonderful feeling.

    Hey, Motai!
    Congrats, man! I never made it that far myself, and I seriously respect anyone who does. Being in this site at your age pretty much means that you have a seriously unfair advantage against your future classmates. Not that many people have professors and industry leaders as free tutors. I know that we haven't interacted much (or at all?) in the threads, but I've always read your stuff with admiration.
    All the best in your future endeavours.

    So far if all goes well, I plan on attending the University of Florida this coming fall. As for the wonderful feeling, it isn't emerging until just recently, because I am not shackled to the constrained nature of high school life (I mean sure I have more freedoms but I certainly am not going to abuse them).

    Thanks everyone for your support :cool:.

    I'm really happy for you, Motai! Have you decided what you will major in?

    I'm going to be cliche and major in physics :uhh:. I'm also thinking about minoring in mathematics just for the heck of it (might as well).

    I think that's great - I know you'll do very well. I really wasn't sure what you'd go for because you always seemed to me to be very knowledgeable and talented in so many areas. (Hope you will keep up with your music, BTW.) :smile:

    The B flat clarinet. I still have yet to try the other instruments in the clarinet family but it shouldn't be too difficult. I want to try the oboe sometime, haven't gotten around to it though. My familiarity is concert and jazz music, so I can't play too much funky stuff.

    I'm not sure if I will be able to maintain level of practice in college though, might get a little rusty. :grumpy:
