Q: My name is Jameer, I’m a grade 10 student and I feel like high school is a waste of time. I don’t feel motivated to do my homework or even attend my classes, please help!!
A: Dear Jameer, Thank you for your inquiry. This is a very common and popular question among high school students. In life it is very easy to get bored of things and as you get older you will see that this problem is a recurring one. If you plan on living life to the fullest it is important that you first adopt the mindset of “I am going to make the most of out of every situation”. And Secondly it’s important that you learn to take the initiative to make sure that your situation is as enjoyable as it can be, don’t be afraid to be creative.
There is always a smart resolution to a problem and to solve this problem I would recommend getting more involved in your school. Examples of this include taking the time to make a new friend, joining a school club/team or speaking with your teacher and providing him or her with a suggestion to make your class more enjoyable. Don’t be afraid to be the class hero, EVERYONE loves a hero, Batman is mine! Try not to forget the bigger picture, we all want to graduate because we know that school can provide us with multiple opportunities and can bring us one step closer to accomplishing our dreams/goals. Also feel free to challenge yourself, remember, the less time you have to be bored, the less time that you will be bored.
Hope we were able to help you out, thanks for your questions Jameer!!!
