MY school / 我的學校


I grew up in my parents' schools, and I worked almost all the time in school after growing up. I am never a believer in the omnipotence of education, but I sincerely believe in the value of school education. Lately I have learned again that too many life experiences can only be obtained outside schools in straightforward and fast ways.


Now I can perfectly understand why some students are reluctant to go to school. I told Caterina that not going to school is a way to rebel. She said that rebels don't leave school. They found their own schools. Today I came across a quote  by Camus:
"The only way to deal with an unfree world is become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion."


In fact, in my genes, I love school. I have discovered so many interesting things while preparing my industry report over the past two days. Luckily, I didn't run away. I am glad that this year ends with this realization, or how am I going back to school to convince students that going to school can be fun?

Very inspiring. I wonder if I could apply Camus' words to my work environment. Um, it might cost my job.

Carol: Well, but you can apply it in your everyday life:)
