Yes, I know I don’t do updates but I’m doing one now.
Change is good right? Yeah no I don’t like it either.
Anyway a lot has been happening this week and a lot is going to happen in the coming week. When I say a lot has happened, it obviously includes drama with friends and petty first world problems, but it mostly means SCHOOL. Being from India, our summer happens in April and May and our school’s already started. Right now I’m in the 10th grade, which (if you ask any adult) is the most crucial year of our lives.
So of course, our school has to make a huge deal out of this and absolutely BOMBARD us with work. I have literally NO free time.I’m always busy with homework and projects and tests. I have somehow (thank the heavens above) managed to post regularly on this blog, but just barely.
I study in a CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) board-following school. To all of you who don’t know, it is the most pointless way of studying and its a system that HAS to be changed. (My friend M wants to become the Educational Minister and I pray she does so that she change this crappy system) . Getting back to the point, our education is extremely textbook-based and strict. We have two semesters with 4 formatives and 2 summative tests. The formatives are 20% each and regulated at school while the Summatives are of 30% each and regulated directly by the board. The board sends these “answer keys” which have answers COPY-PASTED from the book and if you don’t use the “key words in there” you lose your marks. Even if your answer made perfect sense.
Basically our hands our tied. There’s barely room for true learning and all we have to do is bury our heads in books and mug, mug, mug.
But that’s okay I’ve made peace with that. It can’t be helped and whats the point of ranting on and on about something which you can’t change (at the moment).
The point of this was to tell you all that I probably won’t be coming online on WP for the next week because our FA-1 starts on Thursday and my head belongs to the books now. I’ll try writing a few stories and scheduling them to post, but unfortunately I will not be liking or replying to any comments, just for a week. So excuse me while I die with my books staring me in the face.
I’ll be back before you know it!
Wish me luck!!
