Stamp Go too school by Riza-Izumi Stamp Go too school by Riza-Izumi
A lot of people will want to drop out because they don't want to, get out of bed, go too school, do the work, not be sleeping all day. In other words, they don't want to go to school, because they're lazy.

My boyfriend's ex girlfriend had to finish high school in order for her to be on disability and he tried his best to get her to go, but she didn't go because she was to lazy to get up in the morning, go to school and do some work. My friend, who is 18 1/2 is thinking about dropping out and getting her GED because, she's failing most of her classes, her boyfriend wants her to drop out because, "I don't feel comfortable dating someone in school." (he's 28) and because she just doesn't want to do it.

My dad dropped out because his grades sucked, and because of that, he couldn't play basketball. My cousin, Carrie, got pregnant at 16 (had her daughter at 17), and dropped out because of that (we have birth control for a reason people!). My friend's brother dropped out because he wanted to play video games and watch tv all the time, and was too lazy to go to, according to her, he wanted to graduate and get his diploma, but he obviously didn't want it that badly or he would have went.

I was bullied all through elementary and middle school, by both teachers and kids, than in high school, I was only bullied by the teachers. I had a hard time getting to sleep every single night, so when I got up, I was still a little tired. And there was a bunch more shit, but I don't feel like listing them all :p Even after all that, I stayed in school, and graduated. And from what I've heard, getting your GED is hard, you have to pay for it, and pass everything on the test. Getting a high school diploma sounds easier than getting a GED ^^

TL;DR Stop being a lazyass, and go to school. Having that diploma will make everything you when through worth it :)

Not trying to be the devil's advocate but the GED isn't as hard as people make it out to be.  I'm planning on taking my GED but instead of just sitting there once me and my dad move I'm going to try to get a job  and then enroll into college.  Its not because I'm lazy its because I have autism and other mental problems and it gets annoying constantly having teachers try to teach me things I already know.

I don't care too much for school, but I get it overwith, especially now, and mom said at the first of the year "It's your last year, then you won't have to worry," and i've been reciting it whenever I think about slaughtering someone or just hiding somewhere.

When I first got into the adult branch for my MI therapy, EVERY SINGLE WORKER asked me "did you get a GED?". I mean come ON, do you REALLY think that ALL mentally ill people drop out? I don't think so. I graduated. Plattsburgh High. I just hit a few bumpy roads along the way since my condition was pretty crippling. Now I'm currently planning how I'm going to go to college. I will try my damnedest to pass and graduate.

The only excuses I can understand are kids being over-pressured by their parents to be perfect and go to Yale and law school, or kids with social anxiety.

In the begining of the year, i was mucho stressed :(. I waned to drop out more than anything. Here are the reasons why:
1. Everyone was either mean or ignored me
2. It was the beginning of 6th grade, the proven hardest year
3. My grades were dropping
4. i was at an advanced school, so the work was double the complexity
5. I have A.D.D, so i wouldnt hear when the teacher called my name
6. My only friend had anger issues, and was over protected her whole life, so that gave me the bad reputation
7. I wore more boyish clothes and never smiled, so people thought i was emo
8. i had an ear surgery so i fell far behind in many of my classes, only increasing the complexity.
9. I was very shy and self concious, so the fact that i was a brony made me embarassed.

But the good news is that after Winter break, we got off to a fresh start so
1. i wasnt behind anymore
2. my sister introduced me to more kids
3. my friend with anger issues got better (she even came to my birthday party, which was her first night away from her parents!)
4. I talked to the counsler about my friend issues, and she helped my find a group that was just right
5. I smiled more
6. im still a brony, but i told everyone that im not and became a closet brony. :)

So my reasoning here is that even when bad times crawl upon at school, thats no reason to leave.

Hey, good job, man! Way to stick it out. You have legitimate reasons, and kept going, unlike just lazy people who drop out. I don't know you, but I'm proud of you.

Haha! Thanks! ^^ I'm feeling much more confident now for my next school year, although I am still kinda nervous about the other girls. But anyway, thanks so much for your support!
And I agree completely. My step sister actually did drop out of school for about a month, and her dad was not pleased. She had some legit reasons, but it was overall just  "the work was too hard" and "school sucks" kind stuff. I'm glad she's back in school, though, and I hope she pulls through high school successfully.

My cousin doesn't go to school because "she's afraid that people are going to criticize her." :facepalm: It also doesn't help that my aunt is not admonishing her on the importance of education and why she should go.
Honestly, that is the dumbest excuse I have ever heard for not going to school. People are going to criticize no matter where you go; it is just part of human nature. Not to mention that half of the reasons people drop out can usually be fixed.

Tired in the morning? Go to bed earlier.
Being criticized? Either ignore the criticism, or change what the people are complaining about.
Being bullied? Tell a trusted adult.
Your grades are slipping? Pay more attention in class, brush up on your notes, and ask your teacher for some more clarification on the lesson.

My parents would never allow me to drop out, if they found out that I did, they would knock me into next week. School may be boring and hard at times, but keep in mind that some countries do not have education. Just hang in there, learn from your mistakes, and school may not seem that bad. :)

I agree with this.
I mean, sometimes people can have a reason to drop out, but I think they should at least finish high school.
My best friend's older sister dropped out for several reasons-she wasn't mentally stable being the biggest one. She's had a pretty hard life (bullied by people, abused by her father), and she did get pregnant after dropping out, but she's fine now. She has a job, and a house where she lives with her husband and two daughters, and she's going to go to college. Even so...I still think getting a diploma is a better option.

Thank you for making this. Everyone should get a high school diploma. And, if possible, people should continue their education after high school.

Getting a high school diploma is also a lot more rewarding than getting a GED.

That's what I say! I meet plenty of haters from high school who are saying "you're still at college?" Uh, yeah. I don't want to end up like their asses who work at a fast food joint or bagging groceries for the rest of my lives. Can't do it. I'd rather kill myself. Pretty much everyone in my family at least have a bachelors degree. I don't see how people just quit.

My aunt and cousin, however, dropped like flies and now live a life of motorcycle gangs and weed

Dropping out for nothing? Man, that's what I would consider to be a serious fear of success. Don't these people know that they're supposed to seek out success? I could understand college, but high-school? Really? What are these people doing to themselves? Time is more important than the $50-100 bucks or so it costs to take a GED test (in which I don't know what your area does.). In other words, school needs your time so it could provide you with success.

This stamp took the words right out of my mouth! I remember when I wanted to drop out of high school around the time I joined this site back in the spring of 2004 due to not doing so well in many subjects to the point where i needed to spend spare blocks being frequently tutored in them, which unfortunately seemed tedious to me, but it dismayed my parents and others who needed to constantly supervise me in order to take school seriously that instead, I decided to delay my high school graduation to a year later to when I was originally slated to do so in order to learn at a more comforting pace. However, I was unfortunately unable to graduate with my peers, as me and some I was friends with mourned the result. Luckily, I still managed to make it, and now I'm in my final semester of college, so hopefully I'll be able to live life to the fullest when I finally graduate this spring!
