The Lifestyles Affect the students to be Unsuccessful
Education is the most important key for the students to succeed in life. Most students dream to success with flying colors in their exams, but only a number of people succeed with it. Some students practiced a few of good habits in order to succeed in life, but some students are not.

I recently read an article in CNN portal by Kelly Wallace about teens addicted to social media.
