Question Should I care? - May 19th 2010, 09:26 PM

I know that it's a week till we finish school (finally lol), and that in most lessons all we do is talk to our friends and listen to our ipods. But my friend is now just staying at home playing computer games. He says he's not addicted but he's not on study leave, he's just playing on the computer.
Should I care?
I mean come one surely this is the most important time at school with all the exams coming up!
Its rather ironic really as a few years ago he used to be coming up to me and telling me to be serious about God and University lol Now he simply doesn't care! I don't think he's simply given up, he just can't be bothered. I know he's going into the army and all, but you still need qualifications, he may have previously been getting A's but now he admits that he just isn't putting enough effort in to get those A's any more.

Life is a waterfall,
we're one in the river,
and one again after the fall.
We drink from the river,
then we turn around and put up our walls.
When you lose small mind,
you free your life.
When you free your eyes,
eternal prize.

I think you should explain him about what you just said, and the importance of it. Then if he still decides to slack off, don't worry about it. One has to put in an effort to get something out of it, and if he decides to not put in an effort, then that is his problem, not yours. Make sure you keep on it with the studyin'! x]

Speak to him and just try and convince him to put down the controller and hit the books.

I came here to help out, so if you wanna talk or just need someone to bounce ideas or issues off of or something else then send me a message and I will reply as soon as I can.
