Inspirational stories?

<p>Im feeling very stressed about college right now. I remember there was a thread about someone who slacked off early in hs but got motivated and ended up getting into NYU and many other good schools. Does anyone have the link to that thread or any other similar ones?</p>

<p>Buckle up and motivate yourself. There is no easy way. No comfort.</p>

<p>Found the thread I was talking about, in case anyone else is worried if they are working for nothing.</p>

<p>It shows you that its never too late to improve yourself.</p>
