    bah, just enjoy the moment. If you keep looking towards the future with hope, you will, no doubt, be greatly dissapointed many, many times before you even see a shred of the happiness you thought was in store for you.

    Everyone complaining about school. Will it ever stop?
    You go to school pratically almost 20 years of your life. Learn to enjoy it, it will have some of your better moments. You have nothing to worry about now, food, shelter etc...

    After school you will have to deal with all of this yourself.

    I am enjoying school so much at University, much more than HS, maybe you will feel the same way.

    I think I will enjoy college better than high school. I love the social scene right now in HS, but the everyday dealings with the 6 hour day, and the feeling of I'm not learning anything in, oh id say one of my classes, the other classes i'm fine with and enjoy, is not .

    School is just too tedious, and I suppose you lose that realization when you get a job It's just the same crap everyday with absolutely no variations. I'm positive that half the stuff I learn in school will be of absolutely no use to me in my future, and learning it is just a huge waste of time which could be better spent. It's even more rediculous when teachers assign things which are so redundant for the particular field, which does not at all make me feel inclined to complete them.

    literacy and the refrigeration of food.

    I agree, there are some classes that really have no value with my intended major. I am looking to go into engineering, so all i see that is important is calc, physics, comp sci and english(engineers that can write get paid more...).

    LOL!

    I remember my parents telling me that school would be the happiest time in my life and to enjoy it.

    I did not believe them! I could not leave school and had no control over what I got to do.

    Now the boss / girlfriend / 30 year housing loan compeat to make most of my choices (not in that order).

    Least at school my Mum made my lunch.

    Least then I would get to take more than 21 days holiday in three years.

    That's harsh.

    On school:

    You guys want to start looking at the bright side of school. School is cool. You get all sorts of variety in your work, looked after by your parents, the opportunity to chat up all your female pals.....

    Work on the other hand, don't think for a minute that it's not FULL of tedious tasks. Sitting in meetings that are a complete waste of time, writing reports that nobody is ever going to read, having to chase after people cos they are too bone idle to respond to you........beleive me school was loads easier.

    Um.... I was in "school" (unless that's some weird euphemism or something)... Graduated in '99... Am I missing something?

    I believe that you can never be sure what you're going to be in the future, so i would learn as much as i can in as great variety as possible. Even if you insist, learning more things can never hurt, jsut adds to your common sense.

    The only good thing about school for me is the three hours a day that I spend hanging around here. I decided to teach myself how to program c++ as something to do in computer repair and for the 90% of the time that the cisco curriculum doesn't want to work. So far it (learning programming) isn't working too well, as I have to do that at home and I tend to forget my questions before I get to school to post them. That and I run low on ideas for dumb little programs to test out features of the language. I tend to get grand schemes that I don't have the knowledge to implement.

    yes schools sucks alot. for example i took two computer classes this year and i was pretty excited about them. but it turns out they both suck. the first is computer maintenace which is the better. mostly its out of book learning and occasionally we get to build a computer (yippee). then networking has been all cisco cirruculm, no labs or hands on at all. i wish they had a class to teach some programming because i suffer from some of the same problems as deathstryke. the rest of my classes can be okay except when i get long tedious boring assignments. sometimes i actually enjoy going to my part-time job more than school. not to metion most of the chicks in our town are dumb people of compromised morals anyway, so that kind of takes that fun out of school as well.

    My other big issue is that I managed to fail English last year, so I have to take 2 really stupid English classes this year. English is my least favorite subject with applied biochem (naptime) being a close second. I only took applied biochem because the stupid counselors gangtackled me out of physics (My chem grade was a D because I spent the entire year without a calculator, and I simply can't be accurate to 3 decimal places quickly. I can get close but not quite.)
