I get straight A's, but school is too boring for me.
School feels easy. I consistently score A's and my classes are beginning to be very redundant and boring. Math is boring, I am able to solve concepts using mental math and hardly pay attention to my teacher. Why should I care about math? When will I use it in real life? My least favorite class is English; I am a fast reader, but have little interest in what I'm reading.
I am an Alpha Scholar.
Why was I so disinterested in school? One simple word: purpose. I discovered that I needed a purpose to work towards. My Alpha Scholars mentors helped me to find purpose and set and end goal. I want to be a software engineer just like my Dad. We set long term and short term goals so that I may put myself in the best position to enter the engineering program of my choice in college. I realize that school, homework, and tests have a purpose: for me to develop and refine invaluable skills for the future such as organization at every level, versatility, and detail oriented efficiency. This perspective reinvigorated my interest in school.
