The Plight Of The Overachiever
Hazel Gale

True observation that totally applies to the life a student. Although many think that the stress of a teenager in high school is overrated, I think for a select few, high school, a true frontier of opportunity, can be a trap of bad time management. It especially is difficult for a student who cannot say no to any opportunity offered to him. The over-achieving high schooler tries to pull a boat through an ocean in which the boat is filled with textbooks, novels, musical instruments, sports balls, a video camera, and an entire clique of friends. If only we could be content.
