In my own life, I’ve experienced moments like after my mom’s car accident, when I needed to have grit and resilience. Of course, there were times where it seemed easier to give up and lose hope, but Davidson’s story inspired me to keep pushing myself, as “personal growth means challenging ourselves...even if it calls for bigger risks” (79). Davidson’s story will carry on with me through my college years, as college can be a stressful time, as they are the crucial years of study before achieving a rewarding career. The journey won’t be easy, but after learning about Davidson's grit and resilience to save himself from falling into an eighty foot crevasse, I know that if I am in a difficult situation, that I can do incredible things if I try my hardest, tough it out, and bounce back from adversity. Thank you Jim Davidson for sharing The Ledge, as I will carry on these lessons of grit and resilience whenever I face
“What do we live for if its not to make life less difficult for each other?” Many of us students struggle throughout High School with parents getting divorced, loosing a loved one, teenage pregnancy, and family issues etc. These obstacles shouldn’t get in the way of continuing with life and furthering in our education and future.

What many people would consider one of the benefits of homeschooling that was detrimental to me is that deadlines are not set. I would become lazy, and end up turning in mediocre work.

According to Anya Kamenetz in the article “Generation Debt,” young people of today are struggling with high debt due to high educational finances and this is preventing them to move on as responsible adults. College tuitions are too high to pay that young people fall into applying for student loans, and have significant credit card debt with high balances. Most students are using their credit cards to pay for their college expenses and student loans; even their paychecks are being used to pay for college. I agree that many young people held back in becoming a full adult which they are doing everything they can just to continue their education.

Every teen, at some point in their high school career crave money thus leading to the option of possibly working towards getting a job. There are some fair shares of some positives and negatives when it comes to teens working during high school. A teens performance during school might falter or they can be led down the wrong pathway. Teens shouldn’t be working during high school because it can only lead to them facing a situation where they might pick the wrong option and face consequences for it throughout their lifetime. The main problem I believe all working teens face is the effects it has on their academic performance.
Whether single or married, the stress of attending college often burdens relationships with family and friends. Time and flexibility to engage in social activities you once participated in become a lesser priority now with homework. This can create some friction with friends and family members that do not understand why you suddenly have disappeared off the face of the planet. Having your own family and kids while attending college can make life even more stressful. I love my family and I would not change anything about them for the world, but combined with college and work it can all become incredibly overwhelming.
