Enjoy highschool while you have it. Your never going to see all your highschool friends every day after you graduate. I thought that I hated my highschool until after I graduated, then I realized how much I really liked it.
Edit: I graduated highschool with a cumulative 2.3 GPA and I still got into a decent college.
I took collegue classes all senior year, and worked full time.
Junior year, I skipped about 50+ days, and still graduated with a 3.2 with honors.
High school was a joke.
I dunno man... I enter 10th grade next year, wich is start of the seniors thing so to speak.
Really, I dont want school to end. Just think of allt he crap you have to do after.
Im content with getting As and Bs and then screwing around the whole time. Just some basic orgnaization skills, stay on top of all my work, and the rest is all fun and games.
Why would you want that to end?
The only thing I learned in high school was how to work the system so i could do as little work as possible and get by. I have to say it taught me alot and I was able to learn how to work my universities system so I could do as little work as possible. Now in my job I work the system for the little extra benefits but I do a lot of work so that I'm allowed those things. Thanks high school for that. and to all those that think the work ethic in school determines the work ethic in later life...you're wrong
WildJames, I was exploiting the point made in you initial post. You, by the way I interpreted what you typed, seem to think that if you don't do WELL in school then you are pumping gas. I find that far-fetched and radical. School hardly taught me responsibility. Also, there are many people who have terrible work ethic in school that work diligently in the working environment. I never understood why I would waist my time doing worksheets that didn't show what I learned when I could just take a test and read the book. I never did a homework assignment all year for physics and I would have passed the class with an A had I. Instead I was given a B because I knew the material, but didn't want to work for it. How does that go? I knew what I had to know and I didn't need to apply it anywhere but on a test. I proved myself on those. I was going to school to eventually get my MBA but decided against it. I was tired of lame ass assignments that did really nothing for me. All my business instructors would just give us a crapload of worksheets so we would "better understand given material during lecture." What a crock.
I hope you do become a Mathematics Professor. It's what you would like to do. But every job, for the most part, will have some kind of benefit to society. You need factory workers to make those bags that you use all the time, you need them for the cars you drive, you need grocery store attendants for service at your work. I think you're undermining those other people because they didn't do really well while they were in high school.
Don't ever grow up...stay in HS forrreeevvvveerrr
HS was great..although class did suck. I remember hating having to go every day Senior year, but I went anyways...I think I only missed like once for senior skip day.
College is better than HS...a little more responsibility but way more freedom as well. I'd actually prefer to stay in college for the rest of my life (Van Wilder much!?)...the real world is way too close for me.
Just a little tidbit, speaking from experience:
People who think High School was the best time of their lives have ****ty lives.
Life after college is even better.
High school was fun. Kind of like life now.
I get up and hang out with friends at school or work. I play jazz, lift weights, and party.
No matter your age or location, you can find ways to have fun, work hard, yet relax when you need to.
Senior year is the best year. You can definatly get away with a bit of a senior slide. Although my senior slide started in my junior year (which isn't good because of truancy fines). All the teachers went a lot easier on us and gave us some slack with homework and ****.
I miss high school a lot. Not so much the classes, but the social atmosphere. I don't see a lot of the friends that I use to. I can't wait til fall when I start college. Gonna be some fun stuff!
I'm always right.
College is a blast...I guess I just don't know what to expect in the "real world"
Senior year was a joke. Blew off class alot to go **** around with my girlfriend.
I also agree with paul about the loving HS and having ****ty lives bit as well. I have only been out for 3 years and already my life is 1000 times better.
Highschool had its fun points but in the end I would never wanna go back.
Junior and senior year were by far the best ever. Senior year had half day of class. If I new better I would have kept flunkin the grade over and over again. I LOVED IT
Are you kidding me? No responsibilities, tons of hot young girls running around, all you have to do is wake up and learn.
How many wouldn't want to go back in time and do a few things over. I love to go through my mental roller decks of old girlfriends, football, basketball and baseball games, all the parties. Granted college was great too, but man being a big fish in a small pond was great.
You don't know how great it is to be young and have your whole life in front of you. I'm 33 yrs old now, got a wife, a kid and one on the way, I got tons of responsibilities, tons of bills and less and less time to do the things that I like to do. Grass isn't always greener.
Sounds like American schools are pretty easy. Don't you need to pass exams to get into university or what?
Most people got into semi decent schools with very poor grades and very poor SAT scores. I had a friend go to a respectable school with a 900 on his SAT and no knowledge of physics, any math above general algebra, couldn't read above a 8th grade level and overall just wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed. He had to be re mediated because he scored very poorly on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment. He's a good guy who'd do anything for you and he's fun to hang out with but I honestly didn't think he'd make it into any respectable school.
It waters down what it means to be a college graduate to me.
American public schools are largely a joke. Very few people do more work than they have to get by, including the teachers. That's my experience anyway.
i had weightlifting class and 7am, then class from 9-11am, then a two hour break, then class for another hour...
just don't let the grades drop too much!
