Drop Out and Grow Rich

In our culture going to school is given a lot of respect. Dropouts face a sharp negative stigma. They're quitters. They're losers. They'll go nowhere in life. But is this really true? How big of a factor is college on success?

Here's a list of some of the dropouts that I personally admire :

Bill Gates
Steve Jobs
Paul Allen
Richard Branson
Larry Ellison (Oracle)
Dave Thomas
Ted Turner
Henry Ford
Almost 1 in 5 of the US Presidents including Lincoln, Washington, Jackson, and Cleveland
Albert Einstein
Walt Disney
John D. Rockafeller
Mark Twain
Charles Dickens
Thomas Edison
Benjamin Franklin
Ray Kroc (billionaire founder of McDonalds)
Claude Monet

On My Life - Bit by bit.

Today's blog is going to be covering the past 2 days in this single blog, as the title suggests. The reason today's blog is late is because as is suspected I was very short of time yesterday before having to go out to my band concert. The concert was really good, and well worth doing. We were all given Easter eggs at the end too!! Otherwise, yesterday was a pretty bog standard day. I'm reasonably happy that my religious studies' grades have begun to rise. I'm now working at around about a B/A grade, which I'm happy with considering it's only RS. I know it's still a subject but it just isn't as important as other subjects. We also had french, which to be honest is just a pain. We have a ridiculous amount of work to do in not very much time due to this term being so short. That was all that really happened yesterday though.

Meanwhile, today has been more of the same. We had double English this afternoon which was a drag. I've decided that as much as I would like to just concentrate on maths, I'm also going to have to do some work on English literature. As my English literature knowledge is absolutely dire. I know the novel and play which we're studying fairly well, but my knowledge of the poetry is absolutely dreadful. I think the only way to sort this out is to sit down and do some proper revision, which means going on the internet and hunting out the past papers. Otherwise today, I had maths revision after school. Apparently this is now going to be on a Monday and Tuesday. I suppose it means I don't have quite so much revision to do at home by myself which can get boring after a while.

Other than that nothing has really happened over the last 2 days. So I think I'm going to have to leave it there for this blog. Sorry this blog has been so short but nothing of any interest has really happened. Catch you later!
