This week I decided to talk about the people that others associate themselves with. Including me, there are a few people that I hang out that always do their homework and get good grades. So I figured that I surround myself around a good crowd of people. But I realized that the only reason why I really hang out with these people is because I am not a social person. But even though I have a good crowd I still manage to wait until the last minute and fuck up. I usually fuck up because I determine myself how important something is by my own standards and then decide rather I want to do it or not. This is bad because this is the reason why I didn’t go to class last quarter.
The reason why I talk about this is because of the saying “ you are who you hang with” or something of that nature. I can`t agree with this completely because I have a good group of friends. But I am lazy and I know people who will not do anything unless they have their school work done. I cant do that because I easily get distracted and find other things so that I have a reason to not do homework. This is bad because I need to get my grades together I cannot afford to fuck up any more.
This is my blog because that quote is saying a lot about some people or very little about others. That makes me wonder if I decided to hang out with people who didn’t do anything would I look at them and then decide to do my homework? At the same time the people that I surround myself with do think in a similar way as I do. Maybe I don’t hang out with enough people that are serious about school.
Another scenario is this one chick that I knew. She hung out with a bunch of smart people that really cared about her and wanted her to do real well. The sad thing is even though she had this strong group of friends she managed to drop out of high school. She then got her G.E.D and then dropped out of college twice. Eventually she started hanging out with people who didn’t care about school as much as she didn’t but in the end I don’t think who you hang out with that determines who you are its what you do with your life.
