Given the fact that I'm approaching my 50^th^ high school reunion, it's amazing that I remember anyone from my school days. However, it's easy to remember someone who made an indelible impression on your mind, your soul, your memory.
Technology - it's singlehandedly the most distracting, interesting, and advanced object we have in our society today. You're probably sitting at a computer reading these words as I sat here typing them on my own laptop. Your phone is probably within reach, not to mention buzzing with notifications and phone calls every couple of minutes.
Albert Einstein once wrote, "Never regard study as a duty, but as the enviable opportunity to learn". Not knowing the definition of 'enviable', but believing anything Einstein declares as valuable, I looked up this ambiguous word I'd never heard. The dictionary definition of enviable: arousing or likely to arouse envy. This is when I realized the reason people look up to Albert is not because he was a genius (that too!), but because he had dedication to not only learn, but to pass on his learning like a father teaching his children.
If my grades were Bella, I would be Edward. That is how much I am in love and obsessed with them. The problem is I am not a vampire, unlike Edward, so I need sleep. I have to think about my grades before I fall asleep, when I do not stay up until midnight trying to solve the last math problem on Mymathlab or analyze quotes for my English class.
It's most people's dream to enter college for the people living in India. Since my school days, I dreamt about entering college to get rid of uniforms. "If you work hard for just one year, you can enjoy your college life," I still remember those words said by my school teachers. I worked hard and scored good marks in my finals. After attending an interview, I got selected in women's college.
The term reset has a special meaning to students. It means abandoning the old, harmful habits of procrastination and starting everything from scratch. Throughout my attempts to be a straight-A students, I've been a victim of such absurdity: throwing away my old self to set the foundation of a completely new personality.
The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers." These words seem like something my parents and any of my friends' parents would say.
Herman Ebbinghaus, a German psychologist, conducted an experiment with the intention to find out how much people remember of what they learn. One day after memorizing information, he remembered one third of it. Two days later, he only remembered 5%. This made me think: why do we go to school when we forget what we learn, anyway? What do I remember from elementary school and high school?
