I MADE THIS WITH MY TEARS"

How do you keep pushing when you get knocked down in school. I'm a 1st year undergrad and I know I probably shouldn't complain. But i want to be a doctor and it's seeming in possible . How do you stay strong and keep confidence in your ability when you feel dumb or discouraged.
i know that school is just one step to get to my goal. i’m passionate about law and will do anything i have to do to get to that goal.
i see school as a tool. my tool. to get the skills i need and the education i pay for. school is my tool so i won’t use the tool against me. it means i will work hard to not waste my time or money. so in that way, if i don’t do well on an exam, it’s a learning experience, an opportunity to improve. school is hard, no question. but i don’t see it as a measure of my abilities, i see it as a measure of the skills i have. and if i don’t have the skills when i take one exam or write one essay, it means i need to work on the skills to get a better grade. i KNOW i am able to do well, i just need to get the skills.

Homeless mother who sent six-year-old son to better school in the wrong town jailed for five years
A mother who pleaded guilty to fraudulently enrolling her six-year-old son in the wrong school district has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Tonya McDowell sent her son to an elementary school in Norwalk, Connecticut, instead of her home city of Bridgeport.
The 34-year-old, who was homeless when she was charged with felony larceny last year, said she wanted the best education possible for the boy.
this is bullshit.
#but rapists only get one year #wow
because in america education is a privilege, not a right. here you have to pay for your education. white people get to pay with money, and this mother paid with her freedom
