In fact, I don't like you. I don't like how you over-glorify grade scores like it’s the determinant of your whole life. I don’t like how you tell us “This is going to be the biggest test of your life,” when that person who says it, a full-grown adult, knows that isn’t true. You make us nervous. We’re pissing our pants here because you tell us if we fail, we really fail. Education is a necessity, but is it really that important to tell me that I’m not going to land a job in a law firm if I fail my academic research paper?
I am definitely not telling anyone to just bullshit their education. In fact, the art of bullshitting is only meant for the lethargic. It’s a painful art. School does grade your performance, conduct, and et cetera, depending on what kind it is, and it does show a little on who you are. That report card will not define you but it will definitely say something about you. Don’t treat it like it’s the end of the world.
