    best times of my life. While living in Texas I really enjoyed going to a school that didn’t require uniform like they would in Louisiana. Eventually we returned home, and because I did not find life in Louisiana as interesting as Texas I cried for about four months. To make matters worse, I was out of school for 3 months before finally getting enrolled in a school that I didn’t know existed. I wasn’t able to go to school because I lived with my grandmother whom did not have legal guardianship of me.

I guess everything happens for a reason. As I got older I eventually readjusted to life in New Orleans again. Breezing through middle school, and graduating in 2011, I decided to challenge myself and joined the honors program at John Ehret High School. Though the work was tough, the fruits of my labor begin to ripen.…

Students today “study less than 10 hours a week-that’s less than half the hours they spent studying 40 years ago” (68).
