This is largely just a personal rant. I've never been so tired due to school. I'm currently a junior at high school, and I'm exhausted daily. The classes I'm taking aren't that bad but the work is rather iffy. I'm sure its worse in college, but nevertheless its killer on one's mental and physical health.

How are you guys doing in terms of academics? Majoring in anything, school troubles? Just curious.

No offense man, but if you think high school is hard, wait until you have a job and a boss. I was thought school was long boring and kinda hard. Working is completely different. It's a completely different lifestyle. This is why I completely disagree with the current school programs. It doesn't prepare youth to the real world. Not at all. It's quite the opposite in fact. It makes it even worst.

+rep me and you'll get good karma, wich means you won't be reincarnated into a rock! Isn't that awesome?

But yes this idea has been discussed more than Pam Anderson's tits in a plastic surgeons office.

I'd agree for the most part, but it depends on where you choose to be in life after school. I've heard different accounts from different people.

^ This. Waking up at 5:40am, leaving for a 6:30 am shift, work till 3:00pm, wait till 4:00pm carpool finishes, go home, work on college work and spend what little time I have left on leisures such as Carl Barks comics/internet (mostly 2-3 hours) gets depressing when it becomes the norm for you.



If you think high school is hard, don't ever grow up. =[ =[ =[ =[ =[


Enjoy it man, high school was fun!

I guess hard work increases as soon as you move up on the ladder of academics and enter into your professional life. I previously had a thought that school is tough but now I am working at http://www.papersville.co.uk and I realize school was nothing, though its fun but work is work.

it get's better when you get a low payed job and have to work 12/14 hours a day + 1 hour for getting to work + 1hour to get back home. That was my weeked for some time. And within the week I had to do either school, which was 8-16 ( cuz they decided to change the system and make it even more ******ed ) or later on university, where you have to do a lot for.
Atm, We have a course where we have lessons ca. 3 h each day and then an exercise for about 4 hours, which you have to do. Otherwise you won't pass the course. The course is supposed to teach us C and C++ in one week. x.x
Honestly? School was damn relaxing compared to this.

And no, school doesn't prepare you for anything. At least here, the gap between school and university is HUGE

I honestly hope that the gap here isn't that huge... Currently a freshman at highschool and it isn't really that hard, still is about 20 times harder than primary but eh, still manageable.
Seniors here say 1st year was the hardest for them personally, and if it's really like that I'm looking forward to the next years of highschool, not so much to college though. According to a few people that have finished college it's much easier than highschool because you get to learn more within a shorter timeframe, so its easier to single out the important things and just learn the material as a whole as opposed to learning everything bit by bit. According to those same people though, the professors in college don't even bat an eyelash for the students and suck at explaining things so when you wanna learn you're left on your own 8/

Of course different people have different experiences so .. bleh .3.

Also, everyone thinks highschool is hard when they actually go to highschool, then after they finish it and have to get a job they think high school is relaxing and easy.
If what you're experiencing now is the hardest thing you've experienced till now then its gonna be exhausting for you, once you experience something harder/more demanding/ etc what previously seemed hard now seems easy.

yay opinions

Most tiring part of Uni atm is cycling for 2-3 hours each day. My poor quads have been inflamed since Sunday, and I'm supposed to be rowing today, climbing tomorrow and playing hockey on saturday ;_; Oh well, that's what you suffer when you go from a sedentary life to voluntarily cycling around town all the time. I've not even bothered to keep to my "run for half an hour every morning" plan, there's no point. Fresher's week just ended though so the mental gauntlet has yet to begin, and the first few lectures are basically A-level recap. I'll probably get my first essay set today if I actually get details on the location of my supervision, though.

Just to clarify, College is not difficult. Jobs are. When I work a full time job in the summer it is hell. College is honestly a break for me. In college you have a lot of free time, even if you work a job, it's alot of fun. High School is very time consuming, I personally didn't think it was that hard, but it's deffinitely harder than college. Don't sweat it
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!
