Grades.

9:01:00 AM


Hey, so  today I am going to speak up about grades.
Grades. That number that’s supposed to judge how much we know or don’t know.
I honestly don’t like grades. Why? As a pupil, I constantly feel pressure because of my bad grades, and my good grades. In schools, they teach us about theories, about history, about literature, but what they don’t teach us is that numbers do not define us. In any way or shape, numbers do not define us.
And let me tell you, there are always going to be kids with more knowledge than you, as well as kids with less. And that is OK. Not much people are good at all subjects. For example, I suck in German, but I’m really good at English. I’m not that good at sports, but I’m good at English. It’s called balance.
Sure, I can work my ass off to understand a lesson in German, but German is honestly one of my worst languages (idk why, other languages are really easy, ie French, English, Macedonian, etc) and I don’t like studying JUST for an A (in my country 5) remembering something that isn’t necesarrily important.
There was a teacher that used to separate us by grades, only on tests. He used to ask a bullshit question – Who had this grade or this grade, and he’d give us tests with questions about things that aren’t really important in the lesson, but are important to him. And one day (back then I was a really hard-working student, and I believe I’ll be even better this year) he gave me a test about grade 4, and I got offended (lol throwback to the old Dona that used to be sensitive and butthurt) and actually told him after the test something in the lines of – I’m better than that, u’ll see,  and he kinda ignored me, but whatever, took care of that.
Now I realised – It doesn’t matter. I know my capacity. I know that if I try, even just a lil’ bit, I could get good grades in no time. And honestly, I don’t have the need to show someone something. The only ones I care about are me, my family and my closest friends. As long as they’re proud of me, I’m OK to go, but the one I first and foremost have to take care of is myself, and I have to make MYSELF proud.
And.. Try hard for yourself, not for others to pat you on the back. Most of the time, people won’t acknowledge how hard you’re trying. But you will. And that’s pretty cool. You can motivate , inspire and be your own support. It’s so freaking important, and we don’t even acknowledge it. Don’t force yourself. Do what works for you, and make sure to be enjoying it.

btw this pic isn't mine xd



Xoxo, Dona.

  14. Slažem se sa svakom napisanom riječi. Svaka čast. :) Ako nešto mrzim, to je onda kada učitelji svrstavaju učenike po ocjenama.
