    They expect so much from us, and we’re trying and trying and in the end of the day they call us lazy for not trying hard enough.

    Seven hours of our lives are stolen and a specific letter on a report card guarantees you a better future.

    Some of us don’t even choose to be here, some of us have different aspirations, different dreams, different ways of learning.

    Yet, it’s either you get used to it or you’ll be a “janitor”.
    (What’s even wrong with being a janitor? If someone wants to be one, let them be, tbh.)

    Then we’re all bombarded by stress, desks with towering books, we start to get bored of it.

    Tired of it.

    We used to love learning back then, where we weren’t forced, where we weren’t having stuff shoved into our faces, when we actually had this spark in our hearts to learn, a passion.

    Now that spark is extinguished and it’s just a routine,
    it’s our homework.

      I guess this is the world we’re living in. But we do not have to stay there. We can make it a better world.

      For you and for me…
      For you …

      I think the concept of “janitor” is the belief: If you don’t go to school and get good grades, then you won’t be able to accomplish your dreams and thus, you will have to settle for a job you can get instead of the job you want. You are right in that there is nothing wrong with being a janitor, but the train of thought is, “Who actually wants to be a janitor?” and the answer is “Very few, if any at all.”

      We all make choices, just remember you have to live with those choices. Could you really be happy with a role such as janitor? Would the role of janitor cover bills, hobbies, future children or any other wants you may have?

      It all starts with small choices like showing up to class, doing your homework, and finishing school, but those small choices lead to larger choices which will factually impact the rest of your life.

      Hope this helps.

      So many children around the world have no chances to make their lives better than their parents with education. Some children walk miles and miles a day with bare feet to get an education. You will look back on your school days and wonder why you ever thought they were so hard when the weight of independent adulthood is on your shoulders. To squander this opportunity because of some hours forced to learn things you don’t like seems self defeating unless you want to do an apprenticeship and hey bloody plumbers can get paid more than doctors depending on the job. Both of them deal with human excrement – well depending on the doctor. Never squander opportunities, always watch out for them . Education is one of those opportunities not afforded to many.
