School Is Totally Awesome

I want to write a poem, right now, but it never really works that way.

What has become of me? If I recall correctly, in the last two weeks, almost every time I have held a conversation longer than two minutes with someone I have said, “I hate school.” What a bunch of bull honkey.

School is totally awesome, for the following reasons, which have been conveniently numbered so you donʼt have to count them yourself.

  1. I only “go to school” two days of the week.
  2. Every morning that I go to school, I get to ride on a bus full of students and other people. With few exceptions, I will be standing on said bus, and said students and other people quite possible number in the low hundreds.
  3. I get to walk around in the 107 degree heat. How many states in the United States can boast that sort of temperaturage? Few, if any. Thatʼs why the Austin TX has way better Blue Book value than the standard Austin. And whatʼs with the “Population: ?”?
  4. I sit on the second row in all my classes because I am “ambitious, but not overbearing.” And looking at the PowerPoint presentations from the first row makes my neck hurt.
  5. “Mice come in two varieties. One kind has a little ball inside, and the other kind has a little light inside.” -Alan Lee, professor, Computer Systems Architecture

So, as I have clearly demonstrated using my incredible powers of enumeration, school is, indeed, totally awesome. I have given six perfectly sound reasons for coming to such a conclusion. So if any of you ever hear me say, “I hate school,” again, please correct me.
