What to do after I graduate from college. I’ve been thinking about this lately. Graduate school is a must, since I’m planning on becoming a professor. Do I want to go to grad school right after graduation? Not really. I’m thinking about taking a semester or a year off to do something other than studying…I kind of want to travel around Europe. I also want to go to Japan. Maybe I’ll get a teaching job.

Now back to studying probability theory.

Thinking about the education system/Asian work ethic for my polemical game

missou:

It’s so flawed. And I know that there are a lot of factors that contribute to it, and that no one is completely at fault for its shortcomings. But looking back on my schooling thus far, many of my friends and I can agree that the schooling we went through does so little to produce well-rounded and driven citizens. What’s more important to society? Moving students through a system in order to collect a slip of paper and push them into a cubicle, or producing people that are passionate about what they do (no matter what it is)? Again, it’s really not any one person’s fault, but a combination of poor administration/curriculum-design and students’ laziness and immaturity. 

Personally, I find myself being frustrated at the fact that high school has taught me much about work ethic, memorization, and drills, but little about my own thoughts or opinions. I don’t know if it was because the Asian study/memorize/regurgitate work style drilled into me, but at times I was unable to produce original thoughts or statements, and this brainwashing flowed even into my social and personal life. I would memorize (and I still do now) trite responses and statements as if I were memorizing a speech and spit them back out in conversation, whether or not I believed what I was saying to be true. (When are we going to learn to slow down and say what we really mean?)

Maybe what I’m frustrated about isn’t the schooling I had in high school. Maybe it’s about the way that Asian cultures push their children to succeed in school, but they just end up producing so much of the same breed of super-student that colleges now have to take affirmative action against because we’ve learned how to work the score-based school system too well. We’re all about pushing numbers, pushing scores out like there’s no tomorrow. All regurgitation, no creativity, no real passion for anything.
