Dropping Out of School and Becoming a Hippie


Sooo in approximately who knows how many days, I will be starting my junior year of high school. Now I understand why some people drop out of school. I’ve been feeling those sort of vibes for some time now. I know it’s a horrible decision and I’m not saying I’m going to or that I advocate it. Though right now, all high school is to me is a horrendous waiting area for college and such. I really think that, yes, you need a diploma, but no, everything you’re “taught” is not needed because everyone isn’t going to college nor is everyone going to be in the same profession. We should do the whole China thing except we get to decide what path to take. Pros and cons to that I suppose. And maybe I’m saying all this because I’m a huge procrastinator. And I am, but all the same, I don’t think I’ll need to know the characters of Grapes of Wrath when I’m teaching a class of six year olds. And yes, I do wish to be an elementary school teacher–maybe even an art teacher. Anyway, the schools in the western southern part of Tennessee, where I live, are undergoing major changes that will affect the rest of my high-school career and every other student, but who cares about them. Kidding.  Freshman and sophomore year I was an honors student, basically all my life actually, and now at the closing years of my “free-ride” educational path, I am jumping off the BS wagon and taking regular classes. In all reality, whether I took honors or AP classes in high school, probably won’t determine if I get a job or not. Correct me if I’m wrong please. Actually I think I should have just stuck with standard classes. I would be a genius if I had done so.

Okay okay I’m done with that rant. I wish I were a hippie in a little band I’d like to call Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. These guys here:

Their spirits and liveliness are so infectious and indescribable. I wish all I had to do for a living was prance about on a stage singing and loving life.

*sigh*

I listen to them daily. Quite addicted actually. Plus the videos to their music are really moving. Great stuff.

So yeah, may the odds forever be in your favor.

Good day c:
