and do something stupid.  you are only in high school; get a grip!

I agree. Read the Bio's of some of the richest Mofo's out there... NONE of them had any sort of plan for their future.

Warren Buffet wanted to be an economics professor. I think that was as close as they get.

Richard Branson had no clue. Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard -- hardly a plan.

My point is: If you want to be successful -- have a good time and STRIVE to do what you love.

And for the love of god, lighten up. You are in highschool. Pilfer some beer from your dad and get wasted.

I agree.  I regret not hooking up with more girls in HS.  Take advantage of this....you will not be able to later in life - without going to jail.

Now im just stuck wit me julie.

SRSLY. The day that freshman chicks became jailbait was a SAAD SAAD day for the Captain.

A rich MoFo, for example:

Meh. I've seen richer...

The fact is: being a lawyer really isn't the best way to get filthy-rich. Bill Gates (hell, Steve "Disney" Jobs) make more money in a day than most BIGLAW partners are making in a year.

Is there anything wrong with being a lawyer? No, but if it is your childhood dream? You're almost as bad as the kid who YEARNS to be an accountant.

To all HS students who post here:
You have 4 years of college ahead of you.  Enjoy the aformentioned 4 years and do reasonably well in your chosen major(s).  Study for the LSAT (if you still want to go to LS) and apply. 
Right now you should be:
1. Thinking of prom/homecoming.
2. Closely watching the every move of Paris Hilton (or whatever pop culture icon is on TRL at the moment).
3. Feeling very deeply about something in an adolescent appropriate mood swing.
4. Fighting "The Man" without really knowing what that means.
5. Writing crappy poetry and complaining about how no one understands you.

In other words, be normal.  Obsessing about what may or may not transpire in four to five years will only drive you nuts.

Just try to stay out of trouble if possible.

Life's easier when you don't have to explain your DUI/minor in possession/arrest for shoplifiting on your applications.

I hear you.  When I was a kid, they taught us the basic structure of a sentence and how periods were part of that structure.
