Responsibility

Responsibility begins to take over many lives during high school. Maybe even before then. However many kids reaching this age cringe from everything being piled upon them in these years.
Personally, this year has piled responsibility after responsibility on me and I feel like it is all starting to fall apart. There is no time to sleep. If this is preparation for the “adult world”, well to quote Taylor Swift “I don’t want to grow up” 
Responsibility can equal stress for many people, which is why vacations are seen as such a getaway: a place where nobody could be counting on you, no responsibilities,  just stress free relaxation.
Though however much responsibility is unwanted, people still fight over the honor to have more of it everyday; often in the form of jobs, and sometimes  even in the form of volunteer positions!  This is because responsibility no matter how stressful gives us as a human race a sense of fulfillment that is unparalleled in anything else.

  1. Yeah, I get what you are saying here, and believe it or not, I feel it, too. Junior year is hard. Always has been. So what do we do about it? We take a deep breath and plunge forward. We do not slack off, and we do not give up, and heaven forbid, we do not forget everything we’ve learned all year about argumentation!

    Having said that, I am wondering why you do not have even one concrete and specific example here. You could have used APUSH or APLAng, Calculus, or whatever. Nothing.
    Remember, you have to support your assertions, or you do not have an argument– you only have opinions. And those aren’t good enough. Sorry, Charlie.
