This taught me that when there is a problem to not just sit around and do nothing. I need to put effort into my work and study. My mom once told me, "You can NEVER study enough." At first I thought, "Uh huh, sure I can. Whatever." but my mom was right. You can never study enough. There is no limit. The more you study the better your grades are. Plus, it's never to late to fix a bad grade. What I am saying is, don't procrastinate or wait 'till the last second. Do what you can when you can. Chose grades over fun because there is always a time for fun. They are all hard lessons to learn that I have learned really well. The better I work the better my grades get. The better you work the better your grades get. Learn the lesson now, make you decision now. It's easier to make your choice now because when the time comes, you won't worry or stress because you know what you have chosen. Even if you failed you last 7 test, you can always make some impact on your grade. Never Give Up.
