Aw shucks! I can't believe I forgot the solstice. Equinoxes and solstices are among my favorite almost holidays.

Daylight savings causes tons of problems, but the kicker is that it . Aside from that there doesn't seem to be any proper conclusion as to if it makes anything better or worse. I don't think anyone really thought it through when they gave the go-ahead to it, and the research is still lacking, after almost 100 years.

The best thing about daylight saving where I'm from? It happens about a weak before the final highschool exams. So you get a whole lot of students who don't know or don't remember... all that sort of stuff. Pretty impressive considering the importance put on those exams (I failed mine, but I was totally on time).

I think I get it... Only the students who remember will show up, whereas the ones who are lazy or forgetful or unmotivated will not. That actually makes a lot of sense to me, what with how our schools are designed to work, with the exception that I've always thought that it was a bad way to run a school. They're always way more interested in passing kids who are hard workers or punctual or able to remember about facts and homework assignments, as opposed to kids who are actually intelligent and might actually do something cool. That is, of course, why I was persecuted through my entire grade school career!*

Yay for the machine that is school and the way we institutionalise children into a format that our society feels it can handle. I'm studying education right now, so I get to read about it lots. Isn't it funny that teachers know the system is about uniform and suppression of nature, but so little is done about it?

Astasia you just wrote a really nice reflection on the topic, and if I could keep my eyes focused long enough to read the words I would even engage in a conversation regarding it. However I can't, so I'll leave it for now and read it properly tomorrow. :D Because you totally wanted to know that right?

Nope, 2am. Same time zone as Sydney. Still crazy for me though. I need sleep soon.

It's a gauge. If you suck in school, you can still do well, but if you do well in school people have already seen you prove yourself.
I am against the conformity and lack of expression, but many teachers encourage you to develope as a person. Perhaps those higher up might lose sight of the real education process that happens between student and teacher and tries to make an assembly-line version of education in school, but this is not that common and it's mostly the suits in the govamint trying to keep you down.

It is flawed like everything else. But really, I've met a ton of bastards that just don't give a shit, and a person doesn't need to hire you just because you need to eat.

You at least went and got an education however. You can speak good. They have some evidence that you can accomplish something.

Sorry, you are less of a failure than you think.
