I have none of my original report cards...or school work....or books etc. All of my youth was destroyed in the fire from 1991 that someone punk had set in my home.
I never thought about the consequences of my future if I didn't study. Really I didn't. I was in the NOW. Playtime, comic book reading, show watching etc. Like the Big Bang Theory I was debating whether or not Hulk could lift Thor's hammer being the strongest one there is! Now if there was a test about THAT....Surely I would have passed with flying colors and would have danced my report card into my father to see his gleaming smile.
How I graduated I will never know. How I got accepted into college I will never know. How I started my own restaurant in another country and have it be moderately successful I will never know. But I do know this.
I owe none of it to learning anything at school!
Let's face it. The educators FAILED at getting me the start in life. All they ever did was to make me feel bad with this.
The reason for this blogpost was because I had a dream about getting these again. F me? No my dear "educators".....F YOU!
I learned more in the real world than I ever did in a classroom. Making kids recite and memorize crap does not prepare them for life at all. My education to be a good father came from Phillip Drummond, to know the Norse and Greek Gods from reading Thor, that everyone has girl trouble from Spider Man.
By all accounts of the school system I should have been a failure at life, to be in prison or worse just going by their grading system. I was not interested in their version of school. However today I feel MUCH smarter. I would love to have the brain I have now to go back and ace their "tests". I find history etc. pretty interesting now. It still doesn't compete with a bound volume of the Showcase JLA though for pure entertainment value.
But I am here. I made it. I do not drink, smoke etc. I own my own house, bought and paid for that I won't be a slave paying it off for more years. I am surely not a grade A fat ass like my old elementary school chums that did study hard. They never took care of their bodies. I did.
Who has time for school when one is doing this?
