I never really have much to complain about when it comes to school. Sure, there’s a lot of homework and some teachers suck, but that comes with the package. What I do hate though: the fact that some students work so hard they only get a few hours of sleep every night. The fact that GPA matters more than 3 square meals a day. The fact that having an unrealistic amount of extracurriculars is more important that spending quality time with your family. But most of all, I hate that I, an incredibly hard working student, am overlooked simply because I am not number 1. And that is the American school system in a nutshell.
