Piece of cake. But please stay in school. If you're having a lot of trouble there are programs out there that can help. Most are free and some cost. But please stay in school.

I CANNOT agree more. STAY IN SCHOOL. You WILL Encounter restrictions with a GED, MANY places frown upon it, and MANY also won't even acknowledge an interview, Much lower pay. It's not worth it. I'm not too sure what's going on in your life, or school, but if you want to talk about it, or want some advice, feel free to PM me, and well set something up.

I can promise you, that you WILL regret it.

Okay, what is a g.e.d?

And dropping school? I wouldn't recommend it. I actually thought about just going straight to work after I finish the primary school, but then I chose to go the high school. And let's just say that I regret that choise only during test weeks, when doing homework and at some really boring lessons.

But I think it's worth it.

In your profile you didn't put a city or state. If you don't want it posted send me a pm. I can do some research on what help is available in your area. Just let me know...
