Useless

| | Comments (0)

I'm amazed at how thoroughly useless my higher school education was. Really. I mean it was useful for getting me into and through uni, but the real world? I use basically *none* of anything I learnt during the HSC in real life. In fact the only mathematics I use is pretty much just simple arithmetic. When was the last time any of you needed calculus to run a windows server? Some of the general science stuff I suppose stuck, but really just as general knowledge. I had a bit of a giggle over my year 10 geography notes (1989) which were predominantly USA and USSR. Ah the joys of the cold war lol.

As you may have guessed, I've been purging my old high school stuff. I am keeping some stuff, mostly things that were creative, or that I put a lot of effort into, or were useful or informational. I've also got a pile of stuff that I'll scan before chucking.

And remind me never ever to move house during summer, or overpack book boxes.
