Don’t be an indifferent student.
You will not love all of your subjects. You will not love all your teachers.
You will question the importance of the subject and it’s significance on your current life, your future life and the world-at-large.
In fact, you will rationalize some subjects are pointless and insignificant.
You will fall asleep in class. You will look for shortcuts. You will procrastinate and cram and stress and possibly, fail.
But whatever you do, don’t be indifferent.
Indifference makes many capable students incapable.
Your teacher is passionate about the subject. Respect their passion.
They attend workshops and seminars and take advance classes on the subject you dismiss. They think about the subject while eating lunch, driving to work, staring at themselves in the mirror.
No matter the subject–don’t be indifferent. Your indifference is impossible to hide.
Inside, outside a classroom we’re all forever students.
Respecting another’s passion allows you to forge connections and build relationships while indifference is the quickest, safest way to be forgotten.
