Motivate my indifference

Uploaded by PaulCao on Nov 07, 2001

“So what college do you want to go?” asked Mrs.Scully. “I want to go to Harvard.”, “I want to go to Yale”, a group of 3rd graders eagerly answered. That was 9 years ago, and nine years later like the small desks with drawers, my “Arthur” poster hanging on the wall, the dreams of “Yale and Harvard” too faded away. Maybe you are like me, for the very first time in my life, I felt something different, something slipped away; insecurity, agony and remorse. If you are like everyone else in the school, these dreams has been replaced with the constant repeat of “GPA”, “extra-curricular”, “sports”, “after school jobs” and “AP courses”.

Suddenly, our hobbies was no longer something that we like to do, now, “Mock Trial is good for college”, “varsity basketball will make me a well-rounded person”, “I have to be the president of Club East because I need some leadership skills”.

So everything starts to pile up. So the little things, big things, the things that you didn’t take notice before, every single priorities, all of the tasks that you have to accomplish, starts to take you apart, break you down, degenerating you.
