Exam’s over; time to burn those notes!
A liberating experience surely, unless you have gone fully digital. Somehow sending bytes into recycle bins does not provide the same catharsis. But why do we want this release? Is this a rebuke of our education system? Is that a commentary on the modern appropriation of knowledge for the instrumental rationality of our productivity drives?
If so, I implore you to redirect your vengeance. Knowledge is worth keeping and passing on. And in Sociology (and Anthropology), the knowledge you gain is especially worth keeping and passing on. Their insights speak to individuals finding places within societies. Isn’t that what we do everyday, all our lives?
