RE: STV - Ugly People Music (Things Are Not All Black And White)
Personally, I wasn't too susceptible to peer pressure. I am odd in a way anyway, and learned that already when I was young. But I saw lots of it around me. Simply because so many kids always living together. But had this strange experience in high school. My math teacher singled me out because of my high grades. Using me as an example to those who didn't do that well, openly in the classroom. Obviously, those kids started to dislike me big time. I didn't care too much until it happened a few times these other kids/teenagers started fighting me. Still am puzzled why this teacher did what he did. At the same time, I made special deals with this math teacher. For instance, allowing me to do my homework for other classes, something that was a no-go for the rest of the class or even the entire school. Obviously not liked by a bunch of other kids/teenagers. But I didn't care 😂
Anyways, it isn't easy to live in today's age. Was reading a long article by a group 3 and 6 teachers yesterday. Her experiences with parents. She says: I can handle kids, the easy ones but also the difficult ones. But I can't handle parents. Plenty of parents tell here their kids need special care, a special program since they have high IQ. Push her over and over, pressure her to do whatever, speak to the director of the school, complain about her, demand special tests and whatnot. While her experience is these kids are not more than average, perhaps lagging a bit. She was telling some of the parents don't want to talk with her anymore at all. This drive of parents for their kids to perform is tremendous these days. Perhaps this stems from social media that gave us the rating society. I remember my parents not driving me at all and leaving me to do things in the way I liked. I was quite responsible, so I guess I didn't need anybody to give me a push. Anyways, these days are indeed quite different to a handful of decades ago.
Owww yea, the Ugle People Music are cool! No doubt about it 😉
