To me, education is one of the most important things in life. I believe if someone is given the chance to have an education they should take it. If someone is given an opportunity that so many others aren't, they should take it in a heartbeat. This is where my friends and I differ. They value other things like socialising over their education. Sure, sure a little of both is healthy but some times I just get so frustrated when people can't see past their little bubble they are in and see the bigger picture. There is a whole world out there just waiting for you to make a splash and there you are not attending class or school, for what? So you can stay home with your boyfriend? Or getting bad grades because you are too busy texting during class or passing notes to the person next to you?
How about think about all those other kids our age who are not as privileged? The ones who are living in slums or ghettos. The one's who can't afford an education. The ones who are dying from AIDs and malnutrition and there you are, giving up an opportunity that they would die for. They would love to be in your shoes, but no all you can see if the now, you can't see past yourself.
