(12) Calvin & Hobbes Final Installment

1st Installment

2nd Installment
For my third and final installment I will leave you all with a variety of
Calvin and Hobbes comic strips so you can laugh at and hopefully reflect upon.
Many of us can recall this same occurrence of getting kicked out of the
house to go play outside in an effort to lessen the time we spent indoors
watching cartoons and playing video games. Most of the time however, we would
complain about it being just like the comic says either too hot, bright, humid,
buggy, or all four of them.
In the midst of our day to day hustle we often times get caught up in it
all and can seem to forget the multitude of other things that are going on
around us at the same time. Looking up into the night sky can definitely have
an impact on your views on life, what I think Watterson was trying to convey in
this comic is that when viewed from a distance the tasks you do on a day to day
basis may not seem as important as you make them seem to be, I would even argue
that in the realm of things one may even consider them insignificant. What this
comic seems to want to give understanding of is to step back from your everyday
routine and reflect upon the life of the planet as a whole.
Justifying cheating is something we have all done as students in some
point in our lives, would you take a failing grade you know you deserve or
would you take a passing grade you knew you didn’t deserve because of you
cheating? In my personal opinion I think the United States’ education system is
flawed, we focus entirely too much on memorization, and we aren’t holding
enough people back than we should leading to them being unprepared for what
lies ahead in their educational career. Anyways, what are your opinions on
What a clever boy, I would give him an A.
This is deep, life is short and temporary
#YOLO so live your life to the fullest. Thanks to those who have read, and good
luck in life to everyone.

  1. "Justifying cheating is something we have all done as students" - oh, I hope not!

    But thanks for the C&H break, I needed that! Biggest takeaway: never lose your sense of perspective, or your imagination!
