HIgh school was a lot of fun. The only thing I regret about it is not taking physics. Now, after a university degree, I have to go back to the basics and take physics with a bunch of first years. All they do is complain about the structure, thinking they can beat it if they complain long enough.
Don't make the mistake I did. If you want any sort of job in sciences TAKE PHYSICS. Even though it may not be a requirement for a degree, it is for grad school and now its biting me in the a$$!
And something my dad always says to me.... "once you have a degree, diploma, whatever, NO ONE can take that away from you. You always have it. Even if you forget everything you learned, it is still on paper and it belongs to you."

So tough it out. Smile. Have as much fun in high school as possible without ruining your life or your parents life. Believe me, once you're out, there is no more time for reckless, irresponsible fun.
