Hi guys, I am a new member on here and I have been looking around on the website for about a week or so and really like what I see on here and find a lot of this very informative.
So what I wanted to discuss is my current situation in HS. So I am in my sophmore year and I am just now starting to realize that I need to take school more seriously and I need to do other things that will advance me.
I started off last year not really caring about school, I would do my HW (I would just get it done, didn't care about the integrity of it), do fairly well on tests (NO C's), and I was proficient in most classes. My Freshmen year my cumulative GPA was a 3.455555 and now this year I am taking honors geometry and ap Us History.
I have never really studied hard or had to do anything really school related outside of school and I would also add that my work ethic for school is probably in the substandard range. I do other things outside of school like guitar and it is something that has taken over my life in terms of what I dedicate most of my time to. Other than that I started my first job at 15
I would like to get into a good college and I have been talking to my friend who has been thinking about this stuff way before I ever did and it has kind of intimidated me thinking that I cannot do aswell as I had thought I would.
I have been told that I need to join a lot of clubs, but the things is a lot of them do not interest me in any way and I heard that having a couple of clubs that you actually like instead of 6-7 that you superficially like. I am apart of FBLA, a political club, and I am going to join ski club this year. I also do not know what I would like to major in or have as a job when I am older.
Going back to what I stated earlier about my work ethic, I have always thought of school as a job in the sense of you clock in and clock out. I would never do homework outside of school, always ended up doing it in study hall or during classes.
Anyways I have been going off on a rant here and I don't want to make this too long. Any advice is appreciated
