Just to warn anyone in high school. Don't sweat it. You should still try and get good grades and what not, but don't stress yourself about highschool whatsoever, and don't overachieve too much.
I can promise you when you hit college, your high school achievements will (mostly) mean jack **** .
Oh, and all the stuff you're learning is pretty much useless.
Pick an area of study NOW - I know it seems like a big choice to make, but you'll be happier in the long run. Don't just go for gen eds in college. Believe me, when your in college taking psychology, history, and other useless classes (unless that's truly where your interests and plans lie) your gonna be thinking, "why the **** am I paying to learn this?"
Best advice I can give is to figure out what you like doing, and go to school for it. If you change your mind, switch, but don't go in with no plan.

tldr - if you're in highschool, don't wory too much about stuff, but have a plan before you hit college.

If I get a certain mark this year I get a $5000 scholarship. When I think about it, it's going to cost me a year's worth of slacking off, so it doesn't really feel worth it.
But if I don't get it I'll feel like I lost $5000, which I did in a way.

Also, don't **** up your Freshman year. Just don't. I did. Got a 1.2 or 1.5 GPA. Now I get a 3.4 but my Freshman year is killing my total and looks bad for college.

Junior year, and your ACT/SAT are the only things that matter to colleges

They won't look at your freshman year

They won't look at the freshman year, but they will take a look at your cumulative GPA as of your Junior year.

Also, your college doesn't really matter, as long as it's not some liberal arts faggot school.

it's about field experience, not education
