Day 29: school is a dumbass useless pressure cooker

School is really an absolute dumbass useless pressure cooker.

Yes, I could guess you're probably going to tell me "if you can't handle this stress, you can't handle the stresses that life gives you"


I'll debunk each point at a time.

You have to learn how to deal with all sorts of people

This is true but we live in a hyperconnected world, you get to pick who you want to work with.

If someone is an asshole, you have an option not to work with that person.

No one is going to stop you. It's your choice and yours alone.

If you find the asshole unbearable after choosing to work with that person, it's on you. At least, you got to pick. You will learn how to pick better next time.

So time box your commitments so you don't have to deal with a long-term contract with assholes.

You have to learn how to manage your time

Yes sure, but school projects can throw 5 deadlines in a single week for you. How the fuck do you take ownership of 5 projects with 5 different teams. Each member of the teams would have different obligations and commitments as well.

If you are working in a company or you run one, everyone else who works alongside you has a financial obligation to work hard and get things done. Not school projects. Grades are not mandatory.
