On Procrastination

Apologies for not posting for a while, but I just had a lot of homework and tests and stuff. So I guess I was kinda busy.

But I am also working on a Wattpad story, because I love to write.

But my topic today is on procrastination. Ok. Gather up your hormonal teenage kids to read this post. Or, if you are one of my species, read it yourself.

I am a terrible, horrible, master procrastinator.

But what is procrastination?

Well, my young grasshopper, procrastination is when you don’t do any work and scramble to finish it at the last minute. During your lunch. Before it’s due. Five minutes before you have to hand it in. It also includes praying that they will forget about the fact that it was due.

It’s both terrible and extremely useful to have been trained in.

I, for one, was trained by my awesome dad.

But I digress. This is going to be a short post.

Do not, under any circumstance, procrastinate. It will ruin your life.

High School: Getting the Bang for your Buck

So some of you may notice that this is labelled as “rants.” Any post besides teen advice (although it is also labelled as teen advice here) and “Elle recommends” will be labelled “rants.” Just to let you know.

Well, today I wanted to talk about high school and tuition. If you go to a school with expensive tuition, and even if you go to a school where the tuition is not that expensive, you are still paying money to go to school.

Why am I writing about this? Every day, I go to school and I see kids sleeping in class, texting under the table, talking. Yes, I understand that socializing is pretty awesome. But I want you to keep in mind that your parents are paying money for you to go to school. They could spend it on a year’s worth of Starbucks, a new brand piece of clothing, a new house, a new bag, a vacation for themselves. But they are spending it for you to get an education.

“But I didn’t ask for all this.”

Well, you will when you’re uneducated and on the street with no way to get an income.

You see my drift here, people?

You are essentially paying people to make you smarter. And if you pay people to make you smarter, and you don’t get smarter, then what’s the point in that.

So get smarter. Pay attention in class, and take notes. Try to actually retain the information. Then, when you’re famous and rich, you can actually do something with your life.

So do your parents and the world a favor, and don’t do this.

“What are you gonna be when you’re grown up, (name)? What’re you gonna be when you’re an adult?”

“A burden on society.”

Don’t be that kid. Just don’t.
