Sean's Schooling


S
econdary Education – English: my major. I made a promise to someone some months ago that I would get back to school. It was a promise I’d made to several people over the years since high school and put off again and again for various “reasons”. It wasn’t until I made this last promise that I realized truthfully that I didn’t have reasons for putting it off, but excuses.
My opinion of school and education in the United States is well-documented. I’m vocal in my dislike of the entire system—school in the United States does nothing to evolve the mind and mental capacity of our youth. But there are avenues offered by college that aren’t offered to the ordinary citizen, and these avenues provide a rich experience for the studious.
Being back in school is both painful and a joy. The costs of education and the financial anchoring of the student should be a crime. It is extortion; it is robbery; it is bribery; it is homicide. Financial Aid offers benefits, a little ease, but you’re still responsible for the cost of education. There are systems in school and Financial Aid that can leave you worse off by not telling you everything upfront knowing they’re protected just by telling you after the fact. Many people are unaware that they can refuse any Financial Aid they’re awarded and do not need or will not use.
I’m a full-time student. My schedule covers Psychology, Algebra & Statistics, Education 101, Education 102 (Field Experience), and English 101 (Distance Learning). For all of the things I enjoy about my college experience—I’m equally as frustrated.
I enjoy Psychology and everything it entails. I dislike Algebra & Statistics and the unbelievable repetitiveness of the content. I love Education 101, although I feel at times I’m being told bold-faced lies. I’m not yet even started with Education 102 but I am looking forward to it. English 101 is a mix of enjoyable and unpleasant; enjoyable because the focus is writing and unpleasant because the focus is often-times on evaluative reading & writing.
The things I disliked about grade school are still prevalent—the repetitive work; the unpleasant focus on evaluative reading & writing with works and topics I have very little interest in. Yet I understand not everything we’ll ever encounter as readers, writers, or any other profession will be enjoyable.
However, I enjoy the environment and the casual relation you can develop with a professor. Foul language can be as prevalent as clean language and you can laugh and feel comfortable. I enjoy the scheduling being able to fit my own wants opposed to the strictly suitable for staff in grade schools. There’s a comfortable nature that is missing from K-12 in the United States, and you can find it in college.
Secondary Education – English is my major. My focus is on becoming an English teacher in a high school, and eventually earning my professorship. My goal is to educate, not school. If that means deviating from the curriculum which I’ve been told is permitted if an approach is approved, then so be it. My degree is Secondary EDUCATION – English. And you’ll learn here on Don’t Laugh, People in the coming days that Education is a goal Han & Luke strive for.

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
