I’m not going to give you the whole woe is me sob story; it’s the same smart kid wasting his potential cliche you see everywhere.
I’ve accepted I won’t be going to a university after High School, not like my close friends. I know I’ll be going to a community college, and I know there’s nothing wrong with that. I know, while I’m going to my local college, I’ll be working a job. I’m okay with this, comfortable even.
But I’m tired of disappointing the teachers I respect. Tired of arguing with my parents. I don’t want to bust my ass to pass in my honors and AP courses, not when my prize is community college.
I want to skip all the High School bullshit and start now. But I don’t know how. And I don’t know if its the right decision in the long run.
