TELL ME THAT SCHOOL ISN’T HARD
I KNOW YOU’RE GROWN UP
I KNOW YOU ARE MY PARENT
I KNOW YOU’VE ALREADY BEEN THROUGH THIS PART OF LIFE
BUT SCHOOL HAS GOTTEN HARDER
AND TEACHERS ARE UNFAIR TO ME AND ASSIGN TOO MUCH
AND THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN I AM TIRED
I CANNOT DO WORK
I CANNOT SUCCEED ON A TEST
I CANNOT FUNCTION
man i get this. i get this so hard. but at the same time i’m entering the last years of college and i’m realizing that parents are right, for the most part. you really, really need school to get ahead. to do anything worthwhile with your life. the gains you get from having a degree in something (anything you love, especially) is going to help you like x100000 when you actually need to get a job to support yourself.
school is unfairly hard a lot of the time. but it has to happen, it needs to happen. life doesn’t care when you’re tired. it seriously doesn’t care. if you think it does, if you think anyone cares but you and maybe your parents sometimes… you are not going to function well later on.
it’s sad, but it’s so true.
