I think it's sad that I don't have anything smart, or substantial, to say here.
It's sad that I am in a university, a place of knowledge and ambition, but still I feel my brain decay and wither and shut down.
Isn't that the life of a university student, he said when I was presenting the litany of stuff to do to him... and I asked how does he remind himself why he's doing his course.
What I got was resignation. Is that what most of us must go through to get by? Through eventual resignation?
It's utterly pathetic that I'm supposedly in a place of knowledge, yet I don't feel like I'm actually learning anything.
I have nothing poetic to say here.
Have we all succumbed to learned helplessness that we just don't bother anymore.
