Dude, I don't have anything to say that's not a cliche'...  And 54 years ago, when I was 17 and about equally Nerdy  smiley-mad I wasn't ready to hear what is the truth:

This (High School as Temporary Reality), Too, will pass.  And the AdoubleSHoles will be missing out on all the fun and challenges you will have.

HERE, which is a Community of people who give a Sh.. and figure things out for themselves and help each other and which is people like that all over the World, IS Reality. And you're part of it, Here.

My friend Josiah Longo from the New York band "Gandalf Murphy" wrote this, which is one of my favorite songs:

--( excerpt)--
... we ever fit in anyway
We never fit in anywhere
Only here, and we know here is not perceived reality
We never fit in anyway
We never fit in anywhere
I don't care cause I know here is where I always want to be
--(end)--

Rest of the lyrics are here:

And the song is here:

...see you around.

When I was at school, rock and an antler chisel were all we had.

The saying around our house is, "We don't listen to the haters."  There's plenty of them, so it's useful to get good at tuning them out.

If people are spraying water around electronic components I would be complaining. If that isn't feasible, then try to work at home. How much of "showing up on the day" do you actually have to do to pass? Sounds like not much, if not many people are doing it.

As for later, you will do fine if you know your stuff. Doesn't matter what paper you have (like college degrees) or who you know. Ultimately employers want to hire people who know their stuff. Set yourself personal goals and try to reach those. Ask for help from people (like here) who aren't crazy.

As for your teachers, I have a bit of sympathy for them. Dealing with these idiots isn't fun. And technology keeps changing. Heck, when I started doing electronics it was all valves and working with hundreds of volts, and you got a nasty shock if you weren't paying attention.

As for flying, that's fun too. Bearing in mind that at least your fellow pilots are likely to be reasonably competent and healthy, as they have to have a medical every couple of years, and a flight check. Unlike some of the idiots on the road who are probably legally blind and deaf but still keep driving, because they never, ever, have to be re-tested for physical capacity to drive. Or knowledge of road laws. Or competence.

Agreed - there are far too many elderly people (or sometimes not so elderly) who shouldn't still be driving. Their argument would be 'oh I need the car to travel and get places' - yeah but at what possible cost to other people's lives.
