School is to help you decide on your fate. It gives you the chance to try many things in life, and to discover a love for them, to discover what you’re good at, and what you’re not. It gives you a chance to make mistakes, and to build a character and resilience – those who get good grades possess the character to succeed in life, not just in school, but in all aspects. To get an A+, you either have to be disciplined or be able to work hard into the nights, fighting the sleep, and the temptations, like Facebook and Instagram. But, you know, I guess humans just like the easy way out. Keep playing the victim, and blame the system. Just because you don’t think it’s relevant to YOUR life, it’s insignificant for EVERYONE!
