I think you know I wrote that on the last page of my thesis, as I was reading a couple of notes in the thesis when I was at my senior high school. It’s hard to write a thesis, so I’ll skip it to this page. But if you’re writing a thesis that is about how to make a living outside of high school, you can do it. Here’s my thesis, which I wrote.
I have a couple of questions I want to ask you.
I’m looking forward to hearing about any suggestions you have for senior-year of high school.
My first question is, to paraphrase the famous quote in the final scene of Goodfellas, “When the going gets tough, it got tough.” Now what this means in this case is that most of the seniors on Deathloop have already graduated, and the only major decisions that they have to make are what to do next and how to get money. They will have to make decisions between going into the game and going straight to work, which is a pretty good decision.
The decision is going to be how to spend extra money. You cannot spend more money than you have. You can buy the special powers, which you can only do once, or you can spend money on the game, which is a pretty good decision. The game is pretty much a straight-up survival-adventure, but it makes it feel like there are more layers to it than that.
Your next school can be the most rewarding, but you might be just as miserable as your last school. You’ll probably enjoy school as much as your last school. And when you make the decision, you’ll know the rules of the game as you go, and you’ll have an easier time determining which school to follow.
So it’s kind of like every year you take a test in high school, but the question is the right question. If you take the right question for the right answer, you get that right answer. All the rest is a series of “ifs” and “ands” and “buts” and “hows” and “whys”.
In the end what all of this boils down to is this: It’s your last year of high school. Don’t waste it partying. You need to study. You need to sleep. You need to work. You need to play. You need to think.
One of the biggest reasons I went to college was because I wanted to take my own high school classes. I didn’t know anything about what I was doing. I was interested in math, physics, engineering, and biology, the three most basic sciences. In the end though, I just wanted to be somewhere where I could think.
