“One had to cram all this stuff into one's mind for the examinations, whether one liked it or not. This coercion had such a deterring effect on me that, after I had passed the final examination, I found the consideration of any scientific problems distasteful to me for an entire year.”
“Public school felt like prison — cinderblock walls, fluorescent lights, metal lockers. It was so sterile and unstimulating.”
“How I hated schools, and what a life of anxiety I lived there. I counted the hours to the end of every term, when I should return home.”
“I have no clue about what I want to do with my life; I have no interests because I saw every subject of study as work, and I excelled at every subject just for the purpose of excelling, not learning. And quite frankly, now I'm scared.”
