I am sorry to hear what you are going through. Does your school require you to take electives? If so, try to find electives that you are interested in to alleviate the pressure on other classes. Consider these electives as breaks like lunchtime and try to have fun. Maybe you'll find an elective you are passionate about and decide to major in it in college or university. When I was in high school, like you, I found a lot of classes to be boring. While the teachers thought their classes were the most important, they weren't always properly teaching us. Sometimes, a week before a test, the teachers would announce that there were going to be tests, but they would go on and teach a different topic. Some even talked about their personal lives when they were supposed to be teaching. My high school required me to take electives. I found some enjoyable electives that were business classes. These classes made me want to enroll in the business department, particularly management, in university. After university graduation, I did an internship at my current company, passed the one year internship program, and have been working at my current company since. So, try to find electives that you might enjoy and maybe these same electives will take you far in life. Good luck with your studies! Keep studying!

@juliajuli Your welcome! I am just proud of you that you are still in school regardless of the pressures you are facing. So many students give up and drop out of high school. Keep studying and become someone you and your loved ones can be proud of! Good luck! You can do this! Fight for what you want from life and never give up!
