Wow I haven't been on here for long. I am having problems right now and if any of you have been in the same position that would be great. So I am 16. I am a junior. I go to a vocational school studying computers. This week was the last week for freshmen exploratory (that's when freshmen explore 7 shops and chose 3, then they get into one of the ones they chose.) And it hasn't been a good week. I was sent for three days in a row to help the freshmen. Friday wasn't a good day, we were doing printers and the juniors had a hard time, with the same issue. We couldn't get one thing to install. I had the same issue as well. So the head teacher, saw me struggling. Let me add in that he didn't bother to know what the issue was for all of us. So he then replaces me with someone who has done it before, no big deal. But then he accused me of not helping. In which, was not true at all. I was there for three days and on that Friday I did whatever I could have done to help them. He is not the best teacher. He doesn't seem to understand the material he is teaching us. We are doing networking and he is not even certified fully in networking. So because of that, we all end up failing when taking a test, the good thing is, that the online course we take gives us two other tries also. My teachers seem to be concerned with me, they feel as if my sense of reality is skewed. Little do they know that I'm still trying to figure out things. I am 16 going through life. I'm pretty sure that when you guys were sixteen you had no idea how to handle situations and stuff. I am always being pulled in different directions. And the reality is, too many teens are being pushed in different ways and they don't know what to do. I am going to let them know that I appreciate their concern and that I am still trying to figure out things. I know that I want to go to a college and have an IT career. I know what I wanna do. I wanna go to a technical college, I wanna work too. But I know I may change my mind. I don't misbehave in school. I dont pick on others. I stand up for what is right. I know between right from wrong. I treat my teachers and elders with respect. I just feel as if they don't know that I am still trying to figure out things. I wonder if they forgot what it was like to be 16. But then again, their day was different. I know Im not gonna get accepted into every college, I know that it will be expensive and that I will have to live there. I know I have to keep on applying and that professors will expect tons from you. I know I might get hate for this because I know that the world can be a cruel place. I know how mean people can be. I know that people are trying to help me. Im sorry for the long post its just that too much is going on right now. My question is: when you were a teenager, when you were confronted with a difficult situation in which it involved an imperfection you had, how did you fix it?
