Five days a week (except holidays) year round of eight hours minimum in class, with no option to skip, no summer break (I fucking wish we had mental health days), and I can't fail more than three or so tests in a row (aaaaand there's one every three weeks) or it's bye-bye, go back to the shithole you were before. I fucking love intensive programs, and by love I mean it gives me meaning and it's the first real intellectual challenge I've ever faced (high school, and even college I could hack with a minimum of actual effort), but it also gives me a reason to smoke with abandon and drink vodka straight from the bottle.
So I become irrationally angry when I run across people bitching about how much WURK they have to do for SKOOL. Bitch, shut the fuck up and learn. You're obviously deficient in some area or you wouldn't sound so much like a fucking idiot. Bonus points if they blame other people for their failure.
No. I'll have no one to blame but myself if I fail out of here, but since I worked my ass off to get here in the first place, that's not an option. I'll murder my psyche with extreme prejudice before I let that happen. In part because of my resolve I did not recently fail my third-test-in-a-row, and I'm still here. Oh, happy day. The way I see it, there is no reason anyone should fail out of any damn thing in an American public school. It's made so that the stupid ones pass, so if you're failing, the problem is not with them--it's with you.
