Do you every drag yourself out of bed in the morning and think to yourself, is it worth it? Going to school, coming home and doing more work, is any of it going to benefit me? Do I need it? I think this all the time. How many of these exam results are going to matter to me? How many are going to get me where I want to be in life? Which ones make me any different from anyone else? Or is it the things I choose to do that noone else does what makes me unique? I am who I am and grades on a piece of paper isn't going to change me. Anyone can look good on paper. But, living up to the expectation- there's a real challenge.

We all get out of bed on some days thinking if its worth it. But in todays economy, it really is. You need a great education to get anywhere in life these days... Or catchy phrases like "Aint nobody got time fo dat!".
 
More than likely, you got time fo dat. Though school, I agree, is stupid in some areas and WILL NEVER be applied to daily life unless you become a teacher or professor in that subject you should always try your hardest.
 
Those that push through situations where no one else wants to, or even volunteer and say "ya know what, yeah. Give me what no one else is willing to take" are the ones that stand out. Thats how my father became a hall of fame pitcher. And ill tell you from personal experience it works.
 
Your hard work will pay off. Just dont give up, that is what truly, isnt worth it.

Awesome quote relating kinda to your experience
Preschool-stick you behind a desk and tell you not to break anything
Grade shool- tell you it's a lot harder in highschool
High School- tell you it's a lot harder in collage
Collage- tell you it's a lot harder in the real world 
Real World- Stick you behind a desk and tell you not to break anything

OnlineAnonymous: It's totally worth it...if you work hard and care.
