Nihilist Forrest Gump & The Failings of the Modern Public School System

Standard

The definition of Crisis according to the internet:

  • A crucial or decisive point or situation, especially a difficult or unstable situation involving an impending change.
  • An emotionally stressful event or traumatic change in a person’s life.

What is your opinion of the idea Do you think that a moment of crisis can have significant consequences(?)?

“Can” – Is it possible?

“Significant Consequences” – Consequence: The effect, result, or outcome of something occurring earlier.

Yeah, I think moments of crisis can have significant consequences. Now I just gotta figure out how to sound smart for 4 more paragraphs.

So I’ve decided to try and graduate this exam season. I’ll be too old to go to this school next year; my other options would be to pay $300 or so for each class I’m missing or challenge the exams without any guidance on how to study for them. Or I could just leave out the schoolwork this season and go straight for the exams, which wouldn’t give me a buffer to work with, to merge my exam mark with and raise my overall mark, in case I fail the exams.

It’s not as if avoiding this work now will make it any easier for me once I’m writing the exam. It’ll be the same chore of trying to make up content without much of a topic to write about.

What is your opinion of the idea that a moment of crisis can have significant consequences? I mean, by its definition, a moment of crisis is a moment with consequences. Crisis is a crucial or decisive point or situation, especially a difficult or unstable situation involving an impending change; it’s an emotionally stressful event or traumatic change in a person’s life.

Significant consequence is an inherent part of crisis. It’s not a topic of contention. How am I supposed to demonstrate my ability to make an argument when there’s no argument to be made? It’s plain logic that crises have consequences.

There’s only one way to do this: I need to argue against logic. I need to frame the film Forrest Gump as a hopeless, satirical, nihilist narrative.

Woah. Forrest Gump is the perfect story to bend and twist to demonstrate a nihilistic perspective. This ain’t no coincidence; this is a blessing. I prayed for this and now it’s here: a way to survive writing this essay. Thank God, wow.
