Life in the “Real World”
“Life isn’t fair; get used to it” and “All I ever really needed to know I learned in kindergarten” are two articles about life after school out in the working community. They differ in many ways, but you can still get the some[kmsd1] messageout of both of them. That is, life gets harder[kmsd2].
In “life[kmsd3] isn’t fair; get used to it[kmsd4]” you will find such lines as[kmsd5] “if you think your teacher is tough wait until you get a boss.” This single sentence has changed my thinking on how I look at some teachers at KingstonHigh School. I have dealt with tough teachers and ones I don’t like. I stuck it out knowing that I might not get the best of grades but I will learn how to deal with harsh people. This article is a true reality check, and says grow up and enjoy life while it is difficult because it hard because it gets even harder.[kmsd6]you [kmsd7]will be trying to keep a job that will make you self sufficient, yah [kmsd8]your [kmsd9]not making millions fresh out of high school. The underlying theme in this article is basically “grow up”[kmsd10]
On the other hand “all I ever really needed to know I learned in kindergarten [kmsd11]is a childish article. Robert Fulghum was at least a little sensitive about peoples [kmsd12]emotions and truly cared about trying to keep some poor girls [kmsd13]makeup from streaking down her face. It is a “wouldn’t it be nice” kind of dreaming that the author uses to let you know that you don’t get cookies and milk for snack every day, and there is no naptime that you will so desperately desire. The author states that a lot of fundamental things are learned in kindergarten that are much more important than any other grade.
Both articles use the words “in the real world” maybe in different wordings but still the same irksome fraise[kmsd14]. I feel that I was born into this world, and I sure hope this is real.[kmsd15] I didn’t put someone in extreme pain for something fake and this is [kmsd16]a rip-off.
A similar message is expressed in different ways, that is, life isn’t a box of chocolates after you leave school. School is hard, work is harder. And lastly high school gets you nowhere when it comes to relationships in the working community.
