Hi jaqualen,

When you're young, it's easy to see school as boring. They tell you what to do, when to do it, and rarely explain why.

When you live in a civilization, we all need a common experience to be able to participate. We need language skills to communicate. We need social skills to be able to relate. And we need to learn job skills--from simply balancing the family check book all the way to being able to build homes or built rocket ships.

Find something you love, and do it well. If it's video games, learn all you can and study programming and become a game designer. If it's eating, take culinary courses and learn to be a chef or a restaurant owner.

Good luck, and check back in and tell us how you're doing.
