I was an B honor roll student in 7th grade and in 8th grade I was an A honor roll. I started to have a couple of F's on assignments in 8th grade on the first trimester because I didn't pay much attention in class and I was so distracted by people and friends that I thought just a couple of F's didn't matter. But as it gets closer to become a high schooler and leaving a group of friends I started to study hard. I paid more attention in class and participate. If I'm all by myself I can work and get my focus but if I get distracted I get the feel of like I don't have to do this, this isn't so important. I get carry away with something else that doesn't relate to work. 9th grade is important because it's like the start of your career. If you work hard you will succeed but if you don't work hard you could fail.
