THIS CLASS IS A LOT OF WORK, AND YOU NEED TO ACCEPT THAT.
I know you're thinking you're all that and a bag of chips, and I'm sure you are, but you gotta want it in this class. You gotta want to succeed if you're going to succeed. This class is hard work and you have to put the time and effort into to get the reward and feeling out of it. If you're not willing to work hard at it then you can't receive the amazing feeling you get when you do well on a test.
