Not Nostalgic

I dropped out of school when I was fifteen, and it was absolutely the best thing not only for me, but for anyone unfortunate enough to be seated near me.  I’m glad I did, and I wish I could have done it sooner.

Force a kid into a room made of cinder-blocks painted pea-green, then lock the door behind him; surround him with thirty people not of his own choosing;  sit him at in an uncomfortable hard wooden desk, and don’t let him stand up even if he has to pee; now drone on endlessly about things that aren’t interesting and– be honest– completely unimportant.

I hated school.
