People may judge you for choosing to start that paper early on a Friday night instead of going out , but don’t listen to them, do you.
Your parents did not pay a huge amount of money for your education, just to go out every weekend, skip class, and not care about your grades. That’s just nonsense, not everyone gets to have an education, so the fact that you value your education, study hard, and apply yourself is not something to be ashamed of.
Now I am not saying stay in your room and study all day long. No, enjoy the college life, embrace it. Enjoy the young life and everything it has to offer. However, make sure that assignment is done before going out. Prioritize.
Never second guess yourself because you are the responsible college student that you are. In the end, it will all pay off. Everyone is proud of you because you are the focused, smart individual that you are and not the basic college girl that everyone hooks up with.
If boys overlook you because you’re focused and have goals to achieve, then that is their loss. You are trying to get somewhere and do something with your life; you don’t have time for them to hold you back. Do you. I know you may feel intimidated by the girl who gets all the athletes, but does she know the difference between, there, their, and they’re; what do her grades look like; does she have goals. Don’t get mixed in what other people do. Do you.
So, continue to study hard for that test, continue to worry about achieving that high GPA, continue to achieve your goals and set the bar high. Let them sleep while you grind. Let them grind while you work. The difference will show.
You good, you poppin’.
