i totally agree. i didn't do very well at all in highschool, id get like straight c's d's and maybe a b. and the only thing i regret about it is that i cared too much about my grades. i had alot of great experiences, but i could have had many more if i just said fuck it to school.
some people use school to get somewhere in life, and thats great, but its stupid to think its the only way. IMO life experiences are way more important to me, and you learn a shit ton from them. even if you dont learn anything and just have a really good time, it motivates you do more.
when i look at all the older people i know its usually the guys who didnt go to college or dropped out who are having a better life.
