Personal Experience With School
Looking behind, I now realize how school is not made for everyone. Even though I'm what psychologists define as "gifted", I had the hardest time ever at school – had the worst grades and teachers were really confused. I didn't know what was wrong with me. Looking back, school really felt like torture. And me being such an introvert wasn't helping.
I did all I have to do without really forcing it and decided to enjoy all the free time that comes with school (at least in Switzerland) to learn what I loved (retouching and photography) and I now am a master of it! My work just got published twice on several pages of popular us magazines...and even though I wasn't the best at school (I finished it but didn't graduate) I now know that school is not going to give you a job.
Just do your best without making it more of a h**l for you. School isn't life. Thankfully.
