“Start telling the stories that only you can tell, because there’ll always be better writers than you and there’ll always be smarter writers than you. There will always be people who are much better at doing this or doing that - but you are the only you. Tarantino - you can criticize everything that Quentin does - but nobody writes Tarantino stuff like Tarantino. He is the best Tarantino writer there is, and that was actually the thing that people responded to - they’re going ‘this is an individual writing with his own point of view’. There are better writers than me out there, there are smarter writers, there are people who can plot better - there are all those kinds of things, but there’s nobody who can write a Neil Gaiman story like I can.”—
Okay someone just help me or something. I’m thinking about dropping my logic class because i suck at it and i don’t need this specific class, but a math thing in general so like it wouldn’t really hurt me that much. And it’s like the most dropped class and ugh. She said if you really don’t get it…
definitely drop it. you’re going to get all pissed off at it and if you really hate it/don’t get it then you’re just going to suffer for no reason and probably mess up your gpa to boot.
i would do it, and i, too, have family who would look at me doing something like that as a type of failure, but you know what, it’s not them who has to go through this crap so suck it i’m dropping the class and moving on so i can try to actually enjoy my life and if you’re not happy well you’ll just have to deal with it because i think i know what’s good for me right now is dropping this class and i don’t need your judgement making me feel worse than i’m already feeling D<
sorry, i might have imagined myself in that position a little too strongly. it just really upsets me when people feel like they can’t do something that they feel would be the best thing to do for themselves because of family pressure, i’ve lived with that for most of my life and i’m only now getting over it and making decisions for myself without constantly having to worry what familia thinks about it.
ANYWAY, the point is, do what you feel you need to do, and explain it to your parents as best you can and hopefully they’ll understand. i hope this works out for you <3
