I hate high school
I hate cancer
I hate depression
Ugh I need to stop watching Zach Sobiech videos because I’m already feeling poopy and this is just making it worse.
No fucking shit. That’s why I made that fucking Facebook post, to share my opinion.
“I really appreciate the work put in to the yearbook, but I am honestly disappointed. What especially bothers me is the art page. A lot of my energy this year has been focused on art, having finally realized that art is my calling, and I was sorely disappointed in the way the art page was executed. With only five students’ art really shown, this doesn’t show the range of our arts program, or give other kids the opportunity to be on maybe the only page that they really cared about. I am not trying to diminish the work done on this page or the skill of the students portrayed, however I feel that as someone who plans to be an art teacher and is very vocal about my art, a small picture of my hands sketching is incredibly disappointing. In the past I feel that there was more effort put forth to include every senior at least three times, and I feel that was pushed aside this year in favor of a certain aesthetic. Having been on the yearbook crew last year I understand the work that the yearbook takes, but the way that it favored the “popular” kids this year was much more prominent than in past editions. In the future I encourage the editors to make more of an effort to highlight more social groups than just the most prominent. As such an arts focused school, I am surprised at the way that page was handled.”
My overall experiences with high school have been incredibly negative. As an outcast I didn’t expect much of my high school experience, but I really wish that it had been more pleasant. Four years of my life were spent being ignored, teased, harassed, and generally just pushed off to the side. Looking through the yearbook, I feel like I barely existed.
