Students Who Donâ€™t Try
Yes, I understand that many of the kids at my school come from extremely dysfunctional families that make their lives harder than mine. I know many of them are never supported by their parents, and I truly feel bad for them, but that pity only stretches so far. I go to that school and bust my butt every day for straight As. I know some of the credit goes to my parents for teaching me to take pride in hard work, but even if they hadnâ€™t, I donâ€™t think Iâ€™d have Fs and Ds and an array of detentions under my belt. Iâ€™m sorry, but we all have to work with what weâ€™re given, even if that means bucking up and setting down the Xbox remote to attempt actually doing homework.
