I read this post by Rayan earlier today, and it got me thinking: I still have two more years to go at KSU, and I can assure you that over the past four years I have had most of what he is talking about if not worse.
Just like him, I’m not the kind of guy who would suck up to anyone in order to get what he wants. After four years, I have learned that the grade you get is not necessarily associated with the effort you put: you can work as hard as you can for a whole semester and get a D, while your below-the-average classmate will get an A+ simply because he is a permanent guest in the teacher’s office. And no, he is not there to ask questions related to the curriculum, as he would shamelessly tell you later that he goes there solely to kiss the teacher’s ass.
Just like him, I went there to the wish of my father (rest his soul), but I don’t blame him. It is true he has put some pressure on me, but it was my decision after all even if it was highly influenced by him. I was young, I was stupid, and now I have to take the consequences of my decision. Now, all I want to do is to get my degree, and then go abroad to study something that I really want.
