Fang Talks


It’s no secret that I’m having a pretty easy time at school.

Most things I can do without studying for, and the ones for which I have to study still get me decent grades with minimal effort. I spend so little time working on school stuff, and even littler (wow that’s a word) time actually being at school. Hell, I had most of the week off last week, and tomorrow will be the only day I have to go to school that week. Just give a quick presentation, get that over and done with, and be on my way home again.

I… kind of feel guilty over this. It’s not like it’s something I can help, really, but still. Everyone’s hard at work, some even being at school from nine to six, and still having homework and stuff to do when they get home, while I’m just sort of slacking off, having an easy time. Sure I’m also kind of mad at the fact that the school doesn’t provide me with very big an interesting challenge, but eh, I can work around that. I create my challenges myself, but a lack of schoolwork isn’t easily filled in.

Not that I want to, mind you. I’d much rather stay in my current situation than go back to the laborious work of the slavery-esque school system. I’m quite comfortable here, thank you very much. Guilt’s washing over me though.

Most of you are going to say it, and I already know it, I shouldn’t feel bad about this. Or should I? Probably not, but knowing that doesn’t take the feelings away. Whatchagun’do’boutit though.

Hope y’all had a great weekend!

    I was the exact same way in class, because things came to me really easily. Didn’t have to study. Never had homework. Always had free time. And let me tell you, 10 years later I don’t regret it at all. I spent that time coding, and drawing, and writing, and improving all of the skills I still use today. As long as you’re not just completely wasting your free time, what’s there to regret?

    You said it yourself: if school won’t challenge you, create your own challenges.

    If you’re that ahead of your class, you deserve some free time.
    Read a book or whatever. Or draw. Anything that floats your boat.

    I’m sure every single one of those students who are at school from 9-6 and still have homework wish sooo badly they could be you. So count your blessings ;) if you’re doing all you need to be doing then you don’t have to feel bad. It’s not like you’re bunking or anything.

    Enjoy :)

    Well it’s true you shouldn’t feel bad about it. It’s not really your fault that you’re so far ahead of the rest of your class. As long as the work is getting done, it’s all good. Enjoy your free time. If you really feel that bad about it you could always do your classmates work for them. Or tutor them yourself.
