This Is Why High School Is No Big Deal

Wise words of wisdom from a self-proclaimed "crap student"

This short video by author John Green has a refreshing and humorous message: No matter how much of a failure you are at school, life will always offer you the chance to make a success of yourself later down the line.

Looking through his old photos and school reports, John reminisces about all the classes he cut, all the illicit cigarettes he smoked, all the homework he didn’t do, and comes to the conclusion that none of it mattered so much: “Because high school is not your destiny“, and all those bad grades don’t make you what you are or mean you’ll never amount to anything.
