QUANTI-WHAT???!

My quantitative methods class (aka Quanti) ended not too long ago.
Mehn i was seeing stars in that class!
Anyone who knows me would know that Mathematics and I are not very good friends…
Not to talk of going deep into statistics, which is what this Quanti class is about. I can’t even feel depressed. Or sad about my inability to grasp what goes on in that class.
Cos I’m thinking, what on earth am I going to use all that crap for?!
I can’t get pissed either. I’m just numb.
Core Maths, Basic Stats and now this.
And I thought Basic Stats was the last I’d see of any Math-like course in my life.
So I’m sitting in the class thinking, how’s all this gonna help me someday?
Plotting scattered graphs, finding rows& columns of some figures, Chi Square Test, Chi Square distribution, blah blah blah….
What has this got to do with me?!
With my life, with what I wanna do after school?
Nada. Absolutely nothing!
Yet I am forced to study& write an exam on it.
And I’m expected to get a pass else I can’t graduate.
But let’s be real here…some people who have made it big didn’t even go through college. Some, not even high school.
Who said talent doesn’t pay?
Who said we have to go through this educational system before we can make money?
Why are there so many unemployed graduates then?
Somewhere in 2010, all these thoughts made me come close to quitting school, (plus I was taking Basic Statistics class then) because honestly learning about Buddhism, Shintoism and Hinduism (in the Study of Religions, another course I’m taking) is not gonna pay my bills!
Its never gonna put food on my table, yet I am expected to learn, understand, write exams & get a pass.
That’s what the system demands. What society expects.
O well. Its not like I can do anything to change that now can I?
Just gotta suck it up& endure.
My kids aren’t gonna go through this torture though. Yeah they’ll go to school and all, but after high school? They’d only study what they’re interested in. Where their strength lies. What they want.
Just that. And nothing else.
I won’t have any irrelevant subjects forced on them.
Why should I come to Uni and study what the school wants me to, when they won’t write my exams for me??
Did I not pay fees to be here??
*rolling my eyes all the way to the back*
Quanti…..Quanti-What??? KMT!
