The more you study, the more you know;
The more you know, the more you remember;

The more you forget, the less you know.
So why study?
I realize many university graduates are searching jobs everywhere. From Jalan Riong to
Lorong Haji Taib Jalan Kuching, ups and downs, just for interviews. Thinking the world is so difficult, I can just ask myself, "Even graduates can't get a job, what will happen to me in the future?".
I walked along pasar malam. Graduates can be found everywhere. Selling jagung (maize), selling sushi, selling tau-huey... Those situations, until I saw by my own eyes, an SYT was reading her college (I think so) text book while selling ear-rings. Is the world so competitive? Obviously, I don't encourage this SYT to jual badan lah. But I wonder why they can't get a good job.
I start to understand? Study doesn't really help us? My cousin (1 year elder than me) who was lefted out from a school, followed his friends to work at Mentakab. Not to say I underestimate him, but I was his tutor once before. I taught him English a few years ago during the 2-months school holiday. I can see he
is stupid can't cope quite well. Until now, he can't even speak a proper English sentence. And now, he works in a workshop at somewhere, earns a living by himself. His monthly paid was almost RM1k. I mean, RM1k is still good as in a countryside area. His boss praised his hardwork and intelligence, saying that he learns and does things fast.
Another few examples, Bill Gates is a university dropout too. Uncle Lim is a dropout too. Warren Buffet plays shares where he uses his own ways. He don't even need to know what is amplitudes or resonance. Those richmen, usually businessmen, they dare to take the risk and being one of the successful leaders and people in the world. Once again, I wonder why am I study so hard?
Another question, do we really apply the things we study in our life? Do we measure and calculate the velocity of a car on a road? Do we use a thermometer to measure the temperature of a liquid?
My daily routine starts. Wake up, brush teeth, bathe, go to school, penaltilized, caned by discipline teachers, sleep in the class, procrastinating, come back from school. I don't even bother to what teachers are talking, because they are repeating the whole text in the text book. I also can read at home mah. What for so susah susah, go to school and get myself into troubles? I start to dream. but now, I know I have to wake up. I have to study for my SPM.
