I have been studying my butt off all day for my first test in my AP Biology class. But I think after I'm done, it'll all be worth it. I believe that working hard to gain something in the end is very much worth all the pain and struggles you go through while getting there. The benefits outweigh the humongous loads of work. I also believe, though, that you can pace yourself when you work. There is no reason to kill yourself. The same goal you are trying to reach will still be there when you get done, so pacing yourself is always important to keep yourself sane and healthy. Let me know your opinions on work and work loads.
