    I have absolutely no will to do anything for school, zip, nodda, nope. I am hating school right now, I used to get really really good grades now i'm getting some lower grades, this sucks, I don't know what happened, but this year, my eighth grade year is just sucking majorily. Algebra, High School english classes, really hard science, ugh ugh ugh. Am I alone?

    I hate school.

    God, can I not wait for next Wednesday to be over... :rolleyes:

    Do well at school, get a well-paying job, buy lots of Macs. I'm pretty sure that's the aim.

    And people say we don't know the meaning of life... :rolleyes:

    Sorry to say this, but you're in 8th grade. Even if you are taking some high school courses, it will get worse as you advance into higher grades. High school english is easy. That said, don't let yourself start slacking in grade 8! Find a place where you work best, force yourself to work, do whatever it takes! Honestly, you won't like it now, but you won't regret it later.

    It's important to have a will. Otherwise when your head explodes from too much knowledge*, your estate goes into probate, and your bereft family will have to sell the iPod for the taxes and expenses....


    * I advise forgetting everything as quickly as possible. Did you know you can fit three episodes of Friends into the space saved by forgetting one mathematical theorum? And an extra one just for forgetting how to spell Pythager... Pithygoran... Python Diarrea... that thing with the triangles.

    Wait until you have a mortgage, car payments, an ex-wife, a new ife, and 2.3 kids. You'll long for 8th grade again. That or death's sweet embrace.

    When you get older you'll look back and laugh. Wait till you have to get into the real world. 9-5 if you are lucky doing something you are likely to find, at best, demoralising and frustrating, even if it is what you want to do, all just to earn some money, of which you have to give a lot to the government for them to do things you don't agree with!

    All right maybe it's not all bad but still!

    I reckon it gets better as you get further up the high school creek. I know it gets harder, but the study becomes more relevant and the school starts treating you like an adult (eventually... hopefully...). :)

    I wouldn't worry about 8th grade grades... I remember people told me that about elementary school, I busted my but for nothing... People told me about that in middle school, I busted my but for nothing (well mabey to get into good classes for highschool) ... Now in my 10th grade year colleges are now looking at my grades. I wouldn't worry to much about it now. In highschool is when id start don't sweat it to much right now.

    I know what its like. School can be stressful. Sounds like you need a vacation. Unfortunately, usually tests come before vacations :(.

    Middle school determines the classes you take in high school. High school determines what kind of college (if any) you can get into.

    Let me just say I hauled butt middle school, in high school I lost my touch (grades started dropping because middle school did not prepare me; grades continued to drop in math because I was demoralized because of my Algebra II teacher broke me), and I'm now in 12th grade lazy as ever. I rather just go to my job at the library instead of wasting my time in school, pushing my grades around one last time before colleges start sending their acceptance and rejection letters. I just hope I break the habit before college because I don't feel too safe the way I'm going right now.

    In a nutshell, you don't want a case of "senioritis" (adolescent arrogance and laziness) this early in life :)

    I know how you feel. It sounds very cliché, but you must finish school. Life will be so much easier.

    I speak from experience.

    "I have learnt silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet strange, I am ungrateful to these teachers."
    -Kahlil Gibran

    "It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell."

    Finish school ;)

    By saying "2.3 kids" I think Yellow was sarcastically referring to the average number of children per family in the United States.

    Statistics say that an average american family has 2.3 kids. Just doesn't make sense and I think Yellow wanted to be cynical about it to show how it doesn't make sense.
