TESTING READING

READ THE TEXT AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS BELLOW
« I despise it. Everyday I'm loaded with more and more homework, it's an endless chain, and it won't ever stop, especially being in high school. There's a huge amount of stress in having to get good grades and doing extracurricular activities and building an impressive college resume.

All I want to do is get a good sleep everyday and enjoy time with friends! But it's impossible with all the outside activities combined with school work. I go to a college prep school, so the work is college level and everything is a year above for each grade. What I hate most about it is all the stress parents place on their children there for them to be the best .

It's just so tiring knowing that you won't ever be able to finally stop stressing until the day you retire. ): We learn stuff that we know won't last in our memories in the future. Why do we have to do subjects that we don't plan on getting a career in? » Sheela
