    I'm leaning towards "no"...

    I have the highest grade in the class by 21.3 points, I have a pipe to smoke, comic books to read, and I just got the WWE wrestling channel.

    Thoughts?

    Your senior year of middle school is very, very important. It sets the tone and pace for the rest of your secondary school career. Don't blow it off. There will be time for sex and drugs and ant-social behavior once you are in college.

    I fear I'm sounding like my father: "You can do your homework and smoke your pipe! The comix can be a reward when you finish up. And . . . rasslin? Really?"

    A man without a shillelagh is a man without an expedient.

    Don't slack off now...smoke your pipe while you do your homework. The other stuff can wait. You're either moving forward or backward. There is no 'neutral' when it comes to your education.

    Balance, life is all about balance. The homework isn't about beating out your classmates, it sounds like you've
    done that. It's about gaining an edge later, so you can claim the most out of your career and have the confidence
    to advance even when you get even with others who had your success in school and you aren't the star anymore.
    On the other hand, you don't want to hammer yourself into drudgery. You have to retain your ability to savor and
    enjoy. This is a balancing act the rest of your life.

    Ill be the evil voice I suppose... smoke, read comics, watch whatever you want. Your leading the class, a night off never killed anyone...

    ...just dont do it every night.

    I didn't compare myself with the other students. I tried to maximize my education. Ok, I was in my late 40's when I finished my MBA. I needed it to advance in my career.

    The last time I was in college, I was dating my now wife of 20+ years. I was not quite as intense in the studies.

    One night won't blow the class. Enjoy

    I say yes. Do it. I'm on my 15 year old every day, and I don't let him do a thing until he shows me what his assignments are for the day, and then he shows me them completed. If I don't stay on him, he slacks off, which is a habit I hope he'll break soon. I advise you finish your homework, then smoke your pipe as a reward. Good to practice good habits, and when you enter high school, and later college, those habits will follow.

    You won't get into college if you don't do your homework, and who wants to miss out those experiences? Smoke while you study.

    That is absolutely lovely, but what class is it, a lot of classes can make really random turns and poof your failing. I did that in Calculus II I killed it during integration and series, but I slacked in parametrics and then I had to work my ass of to get back to where I was.

    I'm fifty and finally getting my last six credits to graduate from college. I took 25 years off from school because I goofed off when I was ahead of the class by about 20 points.

    I don't need it for work because I'm already considered an expert....but....unless you are learning you are decaying.

    Besides, the WWE isn't real......sorry for the spoiler.

    There is literally nothing better than smoking a pipe while doing your work ... except maybe relaxing while smoking your pipe.

    I am in the same boat. Not only am I an educator at our local community college, I am furthering my degree in Health Informatics. I have a hard time getting to my homework as well. So here I go back to my 30 + page paper I am writing for a business proposal for a imaginitive private practice to buy a Electronic Health Records system from my imaginitive business.

    This. My ten year old is the same way. Once 4 PM hits he can't do anything but eat dinner till the homework is done and done right.

    Fading. I just have a high school diploma.

    Uni. I just grabbed Locke and Key Volume 6, but my wife stole it to read it first.

    Homework while in school is the same as doing your job while at work. You will always see others not doing as they should but if you yourself get the job done then you will have more free time as well as a clean conscience to enjoy your selection of activities.

    Make the right choice and you will not regret anything.

    Though the education system in this country is backward, near useless and far too expensive, it is better than nothing. Slack off if you want to be a coalminer or dishwasher. Otherwise, do your homework. You need something to do during the wrestling commercials.
