white flag

Up until a while ago, I had the idea that in order to do well for my assessments here, I have to make it exactly like what the examiner had in mind. I could have never been more wrong. Wrongest, even. It seems that, for some reasons or another, some of the examiners here haven’t the slightest clue of what they really, truly, and absolutely want. On one day, they can tell you as clear as day of what they want to see in your assignment, only to tell you to do it some other way on the next day. Such fickleness never fail amuse me, except that most of the time the amusement is heavily pancaked by amount of stress generated from examiner’s aforementioned fickleness.

Which brings me to the question : are we, the product of such system going to end up using the same system yet again when facing the challenges of educating the future generation? Will we raise the white flag and succumb to the wheel that we have been chained to? Or might we find the courage to break free and start a revolution. I sure hope that’s the case. But then again, it is all too often that we hear cases which points out that it is almost a nature for human beings to pass on the suffering that one has endured to another. Had it not been the case, there wouldn’t have been the term ‘bully’, right…

Yeah...
Good thought...
I guess with this kind of input we are doomed to produce the same output unless we develop ourselves & recieve different ways of input so we can produce an output that will work best for the future generation.

input wha....?output who...? haha. nicely put man. I think we already learnt the different ways of input that you mentioned back when we were overseas. for that, I'm glad that we were sent there. and that probably one good reason why we find it so hard to stomach the way we receive input back home. anyways, I do believethat our generation CAN bring about some changes
