"Act my age?
What the fuck is that, “act my age”?
What do I care how old I am?
The Ocean is old as fuck.
It will still drown your ass with vigor."
Kylie is such a cool ass Leo.
But Of course she’s cool. Shes a Leo.
"We got so caught up in school being a tradition that we stopped using it as a learning tool, which it should be. There should be a different curriculum in each and every neighborhood. I’m going to Tamalpais High [School] and I’m learning about the basics, but they’re not basic for me. They don’t get us ready for todays world. That’s why the streets have taught me.
School is important, but after you learn reading, writing, arithmetic, that’s it. What they tend to do is teach you reading, writing, and arithmetic, then teach you reading, writing, and arithmetic again then again then again, just making it harder and harder to keep you busy. That’s where they messed up.
There should be a class on drugs. There should be a class on sex education, a real sex education class. Not just pictures, diagrams, and illogical terms. There should be a class on scams. There should be a class on religious cults. There should be a class on police brutality. There should be a class on apartheid. There should be on racism in America. There should be a class on why people are hungry. But there is not. There’s class on gym. Let’s learn volleyball.
There’s classes like algebra where I’ve yet to go to a store and say, ‘Can I have xy + 2 and give me my y change back, thank you.’
The things that helped me were the things I learned from my mother, from the streets. Reading has helped me. Foreign languages. I think they’re important, but I don’t think they should be required. They should be teaching you English and then teaching you how to understand double-talk. Politicians double-talk. Not teaching you how to understand French, Spanish, and German. When am I going to Germany?! I can’t afford rent in America. How am I going to Germany? This is what I mean by the basics.
School’s just a place to keep you busy while [your parents] are at work. We’re not taught to deal with this world as it is. We’re taught to deal with this fairyland. It’s sad, cause I’m telling you and it should not be me telling you. It should be common knowledge. Aren’t they wondering why death rates, suicide, and drug abuse are going up? Aren’t they wondering? Don’t they understand? More kids are being handed crack than they’re being handed diplomas.
Adults should go through school again. And rich people should live like poor people, poor people should live like rich people, and they should change every week. We’d have the best rounded people. We need to learn from our mistakes and stop going through the motions."
