Dear Planet Earth,
It’s been a couple of days now. I wish I had more to blog about than the earthquake in Uganda and how the mainstream news is basically ignoring it, but I need something to distract me from Earth Science homework and college essays.
I can’t understand why my school forces seniors to take science classes anyway. I don’t want to sound like a Republican presidential candidate here, but there has to be more valuable uses for our time besides learning the most basics concepts of ideas that change every ten years. We really know so little about the universe–it’s origin, it’s future–even our own planet’s ocean floors continue to elude us and cause us to make all sorts of crazy theories. So, for forty-five minutes a day, I could learn a lot more applicable information from say, a home ec class or even just a study hall class.
There’s my two cents. I guess it doesn’t have a lot to do with Uganda.
