An Underpaid Profession

This whole week is full of tests and papers to be handed in. The funny thing is, I don't feel as pressurized as I did back in my Secondary school. Enjoying what you study really helps.
The lack of funding in this school is really hurting us. We're losing good professors and the standard of education here will inevitably drop. It's sad how we place so little emphasis on education and so much on military might. Education is the key to so many things. If we had good education, and I mean it in a sense greater than just academics, so many problems would be solved. There would be no prejudice, and wars would be reduced. Conflicts amongst ourselves will cease. I know I'm being idealistic, but isn't ideals what we all should strive for? We cannot firefight our way to the future, solving problems as they crop up. We need to go to the root of the problem….oh well, here I am again, rambling as always.
I'm just hoping that this school doesn't intend to become a second-rate school because of a lack of funds. I've not considered transferring, but if the situation is such that I have no choice….sigh, I don't even know where to go. I'll just leave it all in God's hands. When I was choosing amongst the many universities to apply for, the one lesson I walked away with was that God's plan may not by my plan. Which translates to, God's choice may not be the "number one" choice.
Played basketball today. Needed that break to stretch. I'm getting into the game here, and I'm enjoying it. Even high-fiving the opposing team when they make a good shot, I find that they do the same when I make a good shot. That's what I call a good time. I don't know if I'm going to become a good competitor in the world ahead of me. I sometimes fear that I'll lose out in the job market if I'm not aggressive enough, or if I don't sell myself enough. The thing I fear more would be if I changed into something I hate. It's hard to balance between the two.
Well, I've to go to bed now. Got a test bright and early tomorrow.
