I really should be doing my homework right now...especially since my social studies teacher almost gave me an 85% (even though EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY TEACHERS EXCEPT HIM is trying to put me in an advanced class. But yeah whatever.)
Dang, I was such a jerk to him. I marched to his classroom after school yesterday and demanded why I got an 85% and said I deserved at LEAST a 95% (because it's going to look terrible on my high school application) and showed him my notebook and the notes I've been taking in his class and was like, "There, dum*ss, ya happy?"
*Note: I did not actually say this. Or did I?
So then he was very happy with what he saw and raised my grade to a 95%. Yeah. I can be effective.
Here's a random part of my day that I feel like sharing:
My brother and I were sitting at the dining table, arguing about something extremely petty and unimportant. My parents were trying to sleep on the couch. But they couldn't, because we were being loud and annoying.
"Can you two argue quieter?!?" My mom asked.
My brother and I looked at each other with raised eyebrows. Okay, sure...?
Hm. I wonder if my mother will ever look at this blog. Hmm...Now I'm seriously reconsidering editing my blog....hmm...
Nah forget it.
I'm really just ranting on and on right now. See it? I have nothing to say. But here I am.
Oooh! I have a really good question that I can't figure out the answer to.
Is it more important to have a job that you love and enjoy doing, or doing something noble that will make you successful in life and have people looking up to you?
Think carefully. Most people are going to get all sappy and say, "Well of course you should do something you love."
No. Not that simple.
I want to be a writer. I enjoy writing. BUT, how much money do you think a writer gets? Not everyone is J.K. Rowling, right? So unless you're writing about wizards or vampires, you are most likely not going to be selling that much. Which means not that much money.
Which brings me to my next point. Doing something noble that will make you successful in like, and have people looking up to you.
Everyone wants me to be a doctor. My best subject is science (100%), you get a ton of money, and even if you do not make much money (which I find hard to believe), it's a very, very noble job. Doctors save lives. How much more noble can ya get? And picture this: You're at a really elite cocktail party with men and women dressed up in suits and evening gowns with everyone carrying around a wine glass.
"So what do you do for a living?" someone asks you.
"Oh, I'm a doctor," you reply smoothly.
It sounds so professional and rich and smart.
So what do you guys think is more important? Having a job that you love and enjoy doing, or doing something noble that will make you successful in life and have people looking up to you?
Leave your thoughts as comments, because I could use the help of others. :D
