    Im a university student in my first year. Many would be facing the same problem i currently am. But i need some sort of solution to this. Naturally, ive been a lazy person. Despite pretty decent grades in my Olevels, i lost motivation, lost exam fright and hence my grades have deteriorated ever since, but its not like i fail. I do pass. My first semester at uni didnt go so well. I feel guilty for being an average student with no real ambitions. My father owns a business which im likely to take over one day, hence its very unlikely that i go for a job once i graduate God willingly. But what depresses me is the fact that i have no real motivation or will to study, and its decreasing year by year. Ive always been madly attracted to football. All day everyday, i think about football, go out and play it, watch it on tv. Thats all i want to do. My parents accuse me and make fun of me alot. Whether its half jokingly or not, i know its true, that the only thing i have knowledge of is sports and football. Im of no use in terms of the practical life. And its the people totally different from me that make something of their life. Its the non procrastinators who are successful in this competitive world. Are most students like this? Do all of you think of education as a mandatory boring 12-15 year chunk of your life that you just have to go through? I want to change, but im just hopeless at times.
