Judging by your post, I'll say your maturity level is low. Therefore, your simple mind cannot understand the power of knowledge, and you also cannot understand that school is important because IF you make it to college it will help you. Now look here, in college you will major in something which could be your future career, but then again you could not go to college at all. If you dont go to college, when you get looked at for job interviews and under your strengths you have "being a skibum" with no diploma youll never find a job. My guess here is that you plan on A. working at a hill for the rest of your life B. becoming pro C. are ignorant and stupid and in a couple years youll understand why school is important.
