This year it became hard for me to choose what was more important getiing everything back to normal with me and my friends or doing well in school. At that point I really didn't have a choice. I had to pick friends because they kept distracting me from doing what i had to do in school. Though everytime i tried to make things better i failed. It was like nothing i could do would make us all be friends again. Then as soon as i became more about school my report card came home and I didnt do well. As a result i dont have a phone till the end of the school year and my parents are not giving in at all. So to answer what matters more school or friends? I would have to say school comes first and try to fix what happened with you and your friends. If nothing works out don't let it take over your life like I let it.
