60/365 Homework is bad

Homework, every school students’ nightmare. Homework is known to make learning better and easier for many people. But, why do all teachers assign homework? Now, I want to tell you all who started this nightmare that is called, “Homework”. An Italian pedagog Roberto Nevilis, is known to be the inventor of homework. And the reason why Roberto invented homework, was to punish his students, and mostly it was for the lazy people. So, let’s get this straight, homework was mainly invented to be a punishment. But nowadays, we are having homework every single day. Does that mean that the teachers are punishing us everyday even though we, the students, haven’t really done anything? Wow, homework is such a jerk. Another this I don’t like about homework is that it can be so time consuming. Say if you are on a very hard question and this homework assignment is due tomorrow, 12:00 AM. However, you only got about 10% done with your homework, so now you stress and this is where you get very mad at teachers. And that is fair, but something that I have learned from my family and other people is that, homework is going to always be part of your life until you have graduated from college. And, you should never stress over homework, because you will be able to finish it at the end…hopefully. But I think with teachers giving out assignments every 19 minutes, sometimes it can lead to someone having a burnout. I think the problem is that teachers sometimes don’t realize that middle school and high school students have many more classes that give out the same, if not, more amounts of homework and that it’s putting a lot of pressure on them. But that’s why there are time tables. Manage your time and you won’t have a problem! And…that’s one thing I still need to work on.

56/365 Do I have enough time for clubs in school?

Do you want to be an amazing student for your first year back in school? Do you also want to pursue your passion and join clubs that resonate with that passion? Me too…though there’s a slight problem with that. Time management, what does that mean? Time management is when someone organizes their time to do more important stuff, like homework or a big project. Now, I am that kind of person that will procrastinate and then realize that I now have 20 mins to get my homework done. Isn’t the life of a procrastinator great? But the reason why I bring up this title is because in my school, there is a play called, “A Wrinkle In Time”. And I wanted to be a part of it, but then I realized that the rehearsals would be ending at 6:00 at night. And, being in in-person school, means that the teachers will be giving out lots of homework. So having to do rehearsals right after school, then immediately coming home to finish up lots of homework, isn’t really great.

My parents tell me that I don’t have to stress out about homework, but I don’t get why they say that, because, high school is the big school till college. That’s why it’s called, “high school”, I am someone who thinks that if they don’t get a good grade, then it’s the end of it. I also think that I can only do stuff that I like, only if I do my work. But for high school, if you want to join a club, you would have to do your homework before the club starts, and then rush over to the club. I am not that person since I can only do my work on my laptop, and I don’t want to bring it to school. But, I am going to see if I can be able to balance out my academic and passions, because in life, it’s all about balance.
