Well, I'm sick of uptight people using the fact I didn't pass year 12 against me, meanwhile I have to explain for someone who failed high year 12 I've actually accomplished a lot
Considering I passed most of my TAFE course, and I'm now doing a diploma, isn't too bad for someone who failed high school, best of all the diploma I'm doing gives me entry into university.
I'm just wondering why are so people uptight, I know tons of people who use the fact that I didn't pass high school as some skate goat, even though I've accomplished more than they ever will.
I don't get people, my arrogance has gotten me far, I'm only arrogant when I'm right, I'm open minded, but only to a point, if I know I'm right I'll stick with it. I had so many people tell me I wouldn't get far, or blame me not passing high school for everything. (what I mean by this is, lets say you told me that goats can fly, I'm obviously going to be right when I say, no they can't)
Surprisingly my TAFE tutor was surprised how well I did, considering I flopped year 12, she doesn't usually see people who fail high school.
Personally I don't see high school as some magical gateway into the world into high education, while most people treat it as it is.
Yet I see people who passed high school, not doing anything with there lives, working at maccas for the rest of there life.
I'm not to judge, but the same people were going around telling people I won't make it far in life cause I didn't pass high school.
Meanwhile, I'm doing a diploma, and will be finishing off the last 2 subjects for TAFE in 2018.
Worst part is I have high expectations for myself, unrealistic expectations, as I know I'm a smart bear, and I keep pushing myself to do the impossible which leads to me being depressed and suicidal.
In a way, I've kind of surpassed every single person who doubted me, which is kind of ironic.
I know people who repeated year 12 based on the fact they listened to what the teacher told them, I even had teachers tell me I wouldn't get into TAFE cause I didn't pass high school.
