there is a difference between people who are smart and people who get good grades

just an excuse to justify laziness, anyone can work hard and get good grades no matter how smart you are. It’s how you apply yourself. If you really want something you will put in the extra work to achieve it. So don’t sit here and tell me there’s a difference between being smart and getting good grades. You don’t have to be a genius to get good grades. It’s not like high school is hard either. I’m not the smartest, most studious student and but I took the time, did my work, and learned my material. And now I’m at one of the top 5 public universities in the Nation. I also overcame the adversity of learning with a mental disorder that negatively impacted me throughout school. DON’T tell me there is a difference between smart and getting good grades. 

"The Buddhists say if you meet somebody and your heart pounds, your hands shake, your knees go weak, that’s not the one. When you meet your ‘soul mate’ you’ll feel calm. No anxiety, no agitation.”
