For all I know, you could be lying and just want cool points! D:

What? No! Nooooooo! Its not like that at all.

But if you're not going to trust me, you can keep your stupid cool points.

See, that makes me feel bad, and want to give you the points.

But since I have extreme trust issues, I know think you really DIDN'T know what I said.

I tell you, I'm going insane.

Wait a minute... I would need my sanity first.... which I never had....

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Don't tell him... But I don't get it either.

But technically it does represent my thread, since I don't understand what the title means, its like saying I don't know what Im doing.

And I don't. 

So.. Yeah!

I'm thinking of making my old and new thing into a song, because just written down it doesn't sound the same as it does in my head... But we will see where it goes.

I'm really in love with that song.
You should listen to it!

This isn't poetry... It's a rant. Well, not a rant. It's just life. We all live it, so you should all read this. ;)

We've all been through school. Well, most of us, anyways. Almost every kid has said "Ughhhh I HATE school!" at one time or another.

And sometimes I agree. But today I realized that school, however boring and repetitive it is, really does set you up for life.

You waste most of your day at school. You will probably waste most of your day at work in the future, too. Same old boring schedule for a semester. Same old boring schedule for your job. Sure there will be some exceptions, who are creating new things and such, but there are the people behind the scenes, pushing those buttons. Lots and lots of buttons.

And, like the Jetsons, you will probably not be happy with just pushing buttons. Most people I've met want to be something important, something that people will know them by. We think that just plain old office jobs aren't important, that it has no real impact on people.

Do you ever think about what would happen if no one pushed those buttons? The cogs and screws wouldn't be there, the machine would stop working.

So why is it that people aren't happy with button pushing? Why do we not care about what businesses do, we would rather hear about whatever celebrity slept with another one.

Now, I'm not saying that AG is like this. It's known that around here, the average IQ is a smidge higher than normal.

But, setting yourself up for life in the future isn't just what you should be happy for. We all know education isn't just handed out freely in other parts of the world.

Most people don't realize how it is, not even having a chance to gain knowledge. I didn't really care, until I met a new friend, LiLi.

That's her American name, because I doubt AG could handle her Chinese name. Anyways, she came here in order to learn. The school she went to was pretty much 4 teachers and a chalkboard. She now goes to my school, and is in my Chinese 4&5 class with me. She's absolutely fascinated with everything here. She wants to go to school here for the rest of her life.

It just amazed me how much a person could like school. I mean, I knew we all dealt with it, but LiLi LOVES school. When we were at the mall, she just spilled out her stories about back home, and it just got me thinking.

Now, I've probably rambled on and on for a while now... and it probably has no point whatsoever... But that's okay.

I would just really enjoy seeing someone realize how lucky we are, instead of complaining about it....

Yeah, Blah. I just really needed to type that out for people, because I hope. I hope that people will change, for the better.

I BLAME TRAINS.

Up next: Nothing! :D

I blame Generations 2 and 1, who made trivial jobs seem worthless and demeaning to generation 3 (us). We all want to have kick*** jobs in the future and want to avoid these low-end jobs (which by the way will improve your work ethic like a mother) like a plague.

Up next: Nothing! :D

Sadly lots of people don't care about the learning part. They are too focused on the grades. You can get good grades but still not learn anything. It is the learning that is important not the grades.

I BLAME TRAINS.

What?

Wow. That's. SO. TRUE.

And this almost makes me even consider wondering about what might be different if I were to go to school instead of being homeschooled. Not that I blame homeschoolers, but most of the people at my co-ops are kinda the same, and we don't get exchange students or anything like that. And we don't usually get many people who just change in or out. In fact, the only new people that ever happen to come are either siblings or friends of people who already come, and they happen to almost always be similar to everybody else. Not to say that it's all the same or whatever... [/irrelevance] Sorry.

Cool! Nice rant. And those stupid trains... >.>

Up next: Nothing! :D

I hope you mean that you don't know? D:
