Motivate my indifference

“S o what college do you want to go?” asked Mrs.Scully. “I want to go to Harvard.”, “I
want to go to Yale”, a group of 3rd graders eagerly answered. That was 9 years ago, and
nine years later like the small desks with drawers, my “Arthur” poster hanging on the
wall, the dreams of “Yale and Harvard” too faded away. Maybe you are like me, for the very
first time in my life, I felt something different, something slipped away; insecurity,
agony and remorse. If you are like everyone else in the school, these dreams has been
replaced with the constant repeat of “GPA”, “extra-curricular”, “sports”, “after school
jobs” and “AP courses”. No gone the time when we roamed the fresh, green grass of the
soccer field on a warm, sunny day. No gone the time when we had our birthday where
everyone from the school were invited. Today, at this hour, on this minute, our lives are
controlled by, restrained by, and restricted by issues that we don’t even know why.

Suddenly, “college admission” wiped out “Saturday sleepovers”, “summer camp”, and “movie
on Fridays”. Instead, the routines of our lives are replaced with “2 p.m test cram, I
can’t afford to get a B”, “after school track practice, I have to break 6 minutes”,
“debate team tournament on Wednesday, I am have to improve my win-loss record”, and “come
up with a essay analyzing values of the author at 11 p.m, I need to get A”. Suddenly, the
meaning of sports changed, instead of “nice job”, or “good effort” our coach used to say
in little league or soccer, Varsity soccer, Varsity Football, Varsity Field Hockey is now
“competition of the elite”, “tryouts that takes only top 15 person”, “today, practice is
until 7 p.m”. Suddenly, our hobbies was no longer something that we like to do, now, “Mock
Trial is good for college”, “varsity basketball will make me a well-rounded person”, “I
have to be the president of Club East because I need some leadership skills”.

So everything starts to pile up. So the little things, big things, the things that you
didn’t take notice before, every single priorities, all of the tasks that you have to
accomplish, starts to take you apart, break you down, degenerating you. Yet, You try so
hard, yet, I try so hard, yet he try so hard, yet she try so hard, but we all knew that
life is already dried up, dried up of hope, dried up of any motivation, and dried up of
any love. So everything falls apart, I fall apart, you fall apart, he falls apart, she
falls apart …

“Turn down the music, you know that you’ve done nothing today … do your homework” said our parents,

“What happened, you used to get A’s before, what’s this C about? “ said our friends,

“Young man, I don’t think you see the significance, if you have 2 more absences, you will
L.C this class” said our teachers,
