I continued to concentrate on my new found life and when the end of the school year came, I received one of the greatest blows in my life. I had completely failed tenth grade and because of this failure, I had to be left behind.
This was one of the most devastating news that I had received in my life and I was very hurt by it. It also marked a turnaround in my attitude because despite having to hang out with the most popular people in school and had fun with them, they had all left me behind. Even those friends who seemed not to care at all about their academics had received excellent grades. Not only was I embarrassed but I was also ashamed of the attitude that I had adopted, but also by the new friends that I had made because they misled me. I also came to the realization that high school was not as easy as the primary school and that just because I had passed the previous level with ease did not mean that I had to make less of an effort. Instead, I had to increase further my efforts to study because this was the only way through which I could excel in high school and other levels of education. In order to achieve my new objectives, I chose to change my life completely. The first step that I took was to get new friends who were more focused in their education rather than in having fun and these helped me to recover from the laxity that had overcome me in my academics. I no longer had any distractions and this ensured that my performance also recovered and I regained my position as among the best in my class.
