Your still in school! I got out almost a month ago
I never really noticed a change since the kids in my class are like that year round. Some of them only bother to turn in half their work. They do
just enough to get a D. Yet they are passed on to the next grade
In many of my classes you can pass simply by asking the teacher to give you some answers. So I can see why few try, there is no bonus to making A's
except for a piece of paper. (Except this year, I got a free ticket to a Kenny Chesney concert but it got canceled
) Only about 5 people out of
20 in my class are going to college. One kid even talks about how he is going to work at Wal-Mart his whole life and fix cars on the side. Both his
parents are career Wal-Mart workers. All the girls except two are simply going to marry the first guy they meet since they have never mentioned a
career or anything beyond high school.
Anyway, my classmates have no goals and therefore no motivation to do well in school.
