All I can think about is how this was supposed to be my last day of college and now I have to go through this week of pure hell two more times. Fuck you, mom. I hope you’re pleased with how my life is turning out, since you seem to be the one running the show. Go suck an entire town of dicks.
God someone finally put it all into words.
High school, it seems, has changed. It has become competitive. Young men and women — 13 to 18 years old — must work more or less tirelessly to ensure their spot at a college deemed worthy to them and their families. So rather than living their adolescent lives — lives brimming with desires and vitality, with vim, vigor, and brewing lust — these kids are working at old age homes, cramming for tests, popping Adderall just to make the literal and proverbial grade. And for what? So they can go to a school that puts them in debt for the rest of their lives. School has become a great vehicle of capitalism: it quashes the revolution implicit in adolescence while simultaneously fomenting perpetual indebtedness.
Remember in the 90’s there used be a room in your house that was called the “computer room”.
