I think that high school students should really think about what they want to do after high school. Whether you know it or not, it's getting closer and closer. Pretty soon, decisions of all kinds are going to have to be made that could change your life.
Some students aren't thinking that far ahead. they are just playing it day by day. With some students, it doesn't even concern them - the thought doesn't cross their mind.
This should really be avoided. I think everyone is capable of being good at something and being able to do something with their life. Whether or not they want to go ahead with it or not is totally up to them.
I think there are a lot of career decisions we need to make. We need to find something we are good at and like doing, then we can try to do something with our lives.
That is what I think we should start concentrating on and making decisions about. You can be what you want to be and go for your goals. Otherwise, everything you do is going to be for nothing.v
