Being in high-school should definitely be the best four years of your life. Most people forget that these years is what usually makes up for the rest of your life. For example some people choose to study hard, pass their classes, and then have fun with the time they got left over. Others choose to use up all their time for fun and never pass classes or dedicate any type of time towards their education and usually get held back a couple of years like I did.
If you really want to make high-school the best years of your life then I would suggest choosing option A so that you enjoy all the festivities and parties with friends without having to make-up for lost time. For some odd reason many kids believe that when you get into trouble, it makes you look like a cool guy or girl to all of your peers. In reality your only labeling yourself as being the troublemaker slacker that doesn’t make it anywhere in life to your teachers. Not to mention you make yourself look like an idiot to the smarter kids at your school.
What most kids don’t know is that if your one of those kids that does good and gets his work done on time and passes all his classes then the counselors will give you a little less attention than to the kids who never do work and are always in trouble and never passes their classes. So if you’re a bad kid and you wonder why you get into so much trouble it’s because you’re causing too much attention to yourself and you never do anything that can justify your badness as being good or being minor.

So don’t get into trouble if you know that it can risk you getting kicked out and losing those years that should be the best of your life. Another thing that holds a lot of kids back is being in a romantic relationship with somebody. I’m not saying it’s not good to be in love or care for another person, but if that is what’s holding you back from achieving your goals then there has to be a problem with that relationship. This means that you should think about your education before anything else on your agenda for the year instead of focusing on keeping your loved one by your side.
If that is too selfish for you to think about then do it for your loved one. If you really cared about another person you would care about their education as well. You wouldn’t want your other half to be dimwitted or uneducated. If you cared for that person you’d want them to be smart and knowledgeable and to be successful in life or maybe you should be the successful one to help your other half be something in life. If they cared about you they’d want the same for you too. Anything else would be selfish of them or you and that wouldn’t be fair to the person you thought you loved or to you at all.
The most common thing that hold kids back in school is wanting to party all the time and drink and do drugs and look cool for everyone to see. This is the biggest problem because as a kid all you want to do is party and have fun but when you get older you realize that there is a time and place for everything and during the week is not the time and in school is not the place. School for most kids is their only job and you should treat your school like a job which means to never be late, be respectful to everybody at school, and don’t show up all tired and sick from partying the night before.
I remember seeing kids at school on Monday morning throwing up their organs because they drank too much the night before and only slept for like two hours. That is totally irresponsible and should never happen at your job, so why do we let that happen to us in our schools. High-school could’ve been the best years of my life but unfortunately I was one of the kids who decided to waste all my time having fun and am now left to play catch-up with school credits and classes that should’ve been passed years ago. I should’ve graduated in the year 2010.
It is now the year 2012 and I am still trying to catch-up on credits that I should’ve already completed two years ago. Luckily for me I found OFY and have been able to complete classes faster than ever and hope to soon reach my goal and graduate high-school. So don’t be like me, be one of the kids that was able to graduate with the rest of their peers and be one of those kids who will remember high-school as being the best years of your life instead of being like me and turning them into the longest years of your life.
