This is what i learned in life. If you are taking things foolishly and lazily easy today, you will be hard pressed tomorrow.
During college, life was a breeze. Booze here and there, a party or two or even three every week. No beer for a week was a miracle. Going college was just secondary for me. Just practically wasted my parents’ money.
Consequently, grades were not good to look at. Had to retake some of them the following year. I took the board exam for architects thrice. I had to go through the eye of the needle when looking for a job. Had to humble myself and go for a job that pays peanuts.
Take this as an advice especially for the teenagers.
