#liestheytoldyou, day 1

When I was a child, I did as the children do and learned cursive. I practiced very long and hard to perfect this skill, because my teachers all insisted that cursive is what professors require in college.

Let me tell you this right now, I HAVE NEVER DONE WORK IN CURSIVE SINCE I STARTED COLLEGE. Argh. Things like this make me angry. Besides the corrupt “teacher” unions that make most of the public education system totally inefficent, the thing that bothers me most about educators is that the majority of them do not make an effort to keep up with the times (technology). Yes, maybe when my middle and high school teachers attended University 20 or 30 or 60 years ago, cursive was required. Nowadays we have computers. Cursive is a skill children should learn and be taught and practice, so maybe the teachers knew they were lying to us just so we would learn. I still do not agree with that though. Maybe teachers could teach students how to type so that when they graduate they have a useful skill that is taken for granted as common knowledge in the professional world, since many graduating students still cannot type. Anyway, that’s all. I will come up with some more lies that were told to me while growing up in an underachieving publicly educated environment. Yay.

The mix for “Two Hands” is pretty awesome. We’re excited.
