Subject: Geography vs Add Maths  

To you, an IGNORANT Additional Maths student:

So what if I prefer Geography over Additional Mathematics?Stop dissing Geography! Seriously, I don't get you! Yes, you! I can't stand it if you continue your incessant nonsensical rambles about me. "Hey, why you drop A-Maths?" and "Hey! You betrayed us!" I don't mind these questions that I won't answer anyway. It's only human curiousity. But what I can't stand is that they have continued even until now! It's annoying and to tell you the truth, my eardrums bleed after hearing them for countless number of times.

No, I'm not talking about those. I'm talking about this!

"Without A Maths, you have NO FUTURE!"
"Without A Maths, you shall fail in life!"

Seriously mister, why do you keep flinging these remarks to me? Do you think I have not considered MY decision of dropping Add Maths? You think I just, "Oh! Today I shall drop Add Maths and go to Geography!" NO! I have spent a few days thinking and even rethinking my decisions that could probably alter my entire life. And in the end, I have decided to pursue Geography. Sure, I did not struggle as much with Additional Maths unlike others (I still find it hard though), but I feel that Geography is more of my type.

And stop dissing Geography will you (plus another creep who joined in the conversation just now)?

I have always liked Geography ever since I started learning it. How can I help it? It's not my fault that I liked it. It's one of the most interesting subjects that I've ever studied (and that probably contributes to the reason why I took up Geography: I can't stand the thought of not spending my 2 years studying it). Yet, you keep rambling about how I have "failed" to meet up "your expectations"!

Another reason why I dropped Add Maths is because I will not be persuing careers that are maths-intensive. I know I cannot deny the fact that Maths is inevitable; you need some basic Maths wherever you go. Yes. But I wonder how you got normal Maths WITH Additional Maths messed up. You made it sound like I have sinned so badly!

And I cannot believe that you are making me want to regret my decision. What's wrong with you? Why are you being so sadistic to see me going doubtful about my decisions and go on regretting it?


Why are you so ignorant? Why do you say A Maths is the centre of the universe? Why do you say that people will frown upon those sinful and "stupid" idiotic people who dropped Add Maths, and thus make it difficult to even get a job? And you think I will end up penniless and broke and lonely just because I have dropped A Maths? NOOOOO!

I can't stand the way how some Asians have this "stereotypical" thinking mindset when it comes to education. And the way how they can be so majorly pessimistic! I hate it! It's really ironic that how some people seem to have high intelligence and act very civilised, yet underneath all is an ignorant soul with a very narrow mind which dates back to 2006 BC! They think science and maths rules over everything. Yes, I agree. But not totally.

Asians frown upon those who astrayed from Sciences and Maths. They think these people are useless and too pathetic to take up the more "enriching" Sciences and Maths. You got to change your mindset I tell you and be more open!

Note: The above is a fact. I'm not kidding. I've seen it myself. Aunties and uncles bragging about how their sons and daughters have become surgeons, scientists, doctors, lawyers and countless other prestigious jobs. I can't believe how some can sometimes treated their children like their assets!

Geography ain't easy, I tell you (although it's easier than the you-know-what subject). I can't stand you trying to tell me "Oh! Geography is an easy subject. You know, like anyone can pass it!". I know you can and you have the potential but stop saying that to me, please! It's completely pointless and it takes a lot of effort to remember facts. But I'm glad I ended enjoying doing so more than doing Add Maths.

But most importantly, I ENJOY what I am doing now. So to hell with your remarks please! Spend your time doing something more "productive", like locking up in your room and doing some Phd. Maths questions.

Oh no! My future is doomed? Yes? NO! I have spent some considerable time doing my research on careers that don't require so much Maths, and there are indeed a lot out there! I can name you some, like artists, musicians, writers, lawyers, teachers, historians, archaeologists, TV broadcasters, actors, environmentalists, geologists, GPs etc. etc. etc. This list is non-exhaustive! I suggest you do your own research before saying things out of the blue!

So yea, you say I can take Add Maths as my ninth subject? Yes I can! But I have other plans so that's a no go to me! Besides, I don't want to give myself the extra pressure. And a fool said:

"It's better to do more subjects. The more you do, the better it is! That's what employers want!"

What a load of bullshit! I've never even heard of such statements before! I need statistics, brother! And also quotes from respectable employers too! Get your facts straight before saying something so unrealistic! It all comes to waste if you can juggle 20 subjects, yet you are a loser (i.e. lazy, don't know what/how to do) when it comes to doing your job. You dig? Besides, employers are more interested in your university degree, not what you did some 7 years ago. GCE O Levels is the gateway to further education and possibly a job, but doing more does NOT give you an added advantage (unless one is doing so if he or she is really interested)!

I don't like it when you guys are SOOO ignorant of Geography too. And you even classified it as useless! How dare you! Geography isn't useless, it teaches you about the world and its physical features and how humans interact with it. If it's that useless, the Ministry of Education would have scrapped it off the syllabus eons ago. Sheesh, how wussy can you get?

Bottom line is: Respect my decisions. I've made it, I've done it and I'm committed to it. You have no right to influence my already firm thoughts. You may comment once, twice, thrice even, but not everytime! Besides, who am I to you? Why do you care SO MUCH about how my future will be? So unless you're Raven Baxter, I advise you to keep your mouth shut if you still have nothing nice to say about my choice. You don't see me dissing Add Maths, huh?

If you meant it playfully, I wouldn't have make such a big fuss about it but you have turned it into some kind of serious discussion. Sheesh. Male chauvinism. Pfft.

Oh yea, and the "talk" went somewhat from A Maths - Geography into how brainiacs are conceived. My goodness, how lame can you get? You suddenly say M's father is [I can't remember his prestigious job] and his mother is a physiotherapist, and that's why they conceived such children of high intelligence. And then you used again the example of N, saying that his father is a chemistry supplier (I don't know how they put it) and his mother is an A-Level Physics teacher. That's one one's a scientific prodigy, while the other can take on 9 subjects and remains sane and intelligent.

And you went on to ask me who my parents work as?

My god, you thought that this decision I make, which you feel stupid, makes me stupid? And you proceeded to ask who my parents are? And you dare to compare me with these people?

Who am I, huh, A PRODUCT IS IT????????

For your information, my parents are both hardworking businessmen, and my mom's also a manageress and so is my dad, a manager. So what conclusion are you trying to reach? Intelligent parents make intelligent babies, and stupid parents make....... (dear readers, please continue)?! Insulting, really...

An incohesive conclusion I'm afraid. And you made these gene inheritance thingy sound so ... mechanical and artificial. All these are decided by God I'm afraid. You can't just conceive designer babies! (The 21st century brought a change to that though =\)

I dare not say my parents' jobs, for you may ridicule them ruthlessly, which I do not allow!!!!!! And I'm not a genious okay (I wish I was, but I would be misused and abused), I'm just like everyone else! But there are certain things in me which makes me different, in a way.

Sometimes, I don't know what comes to these people's minds, turning them all weird suddenly. I don't hate them personally though, it's just that these things they do and say can really get on my nerves.

I wish I could say more to them to defend myself. Unfortunately, humans don't take that lightly and they interpret it as a cue to start a tongue-forking argument (sorry, I can't think up of the correct..."phrase"). I know I do =\. Anyway, I wouldn't want that to happen and it's only making matters worse.

On the brighter side, few days are what separates me from exams and freedom. I can't wait!

P.S. I hope none of you Add Maths students and teachers take this post seriously. I'm not directing it to anyone in particular, except for the people I mentioned above. So don't worry, I have nothing against you people or the subject! Key word: ignorant.

Hey kiddo,

Everyone always has something to say about everything. Just stay in school, studying the things that interest you. That's how you win the game. For many students your age the pressure to 'accomplish' is extremely high and many jobs you will face in the future have not even been created. Staying strong in the face of adversity is the best revenge.


It's not easy when 90% of other people who are worse off than me does Additional Maths. I actually shocked everyone in my class that I'm dropping the "prestigious" subject and take up a rather "easy" subject. Pfft. I never am fluent with numbers anyway.

To that guy, I'm a smart guy who suddenly turned stupid. I just don't understand why he wanted to make me regret about my decisions when clearly I'm not!

I already tried to be patient, but unfortunately his dissing doesn't ever seem to stop! >.<

"Staying strong in the face of adversity is the best revenge."

Let's hope that it will work :D I shall endure it for another year, and prove to him the awesomity of Geography in the O Levels ;)

Stick with what you like.
If everyone just studied math and science there would be no movies, no restaurants, no comedians, no.. the world would be a cold and uninviting place to live in..
