Imagine this scenario, you're a 15/16 year old teenager who has his/hers final coming up in the next month. You know you have mountains and mountains of revision to get done, so you drag yourself towards your desk.Open up your text book and force yourself to read.This goes on for about 7 to 8 minutes before the text starts to blur and you lose all concentration.
You're tempted to grab your phone and check your message .BAM and before you know it you've just spent two hours texting when you should have been revising.
This is the case with teens everywhere everyday.Teenagers should stop spending most of their free time on social media.Social media distracts(or should i say controls?) kids from their school revision.They spend all day clicking away when they should be reading and storing information away into their heads instead of spending all night chatting online with someone they've just seen 2 hours ago at school.
I am not persuading you ban all your technology but to make sure you can control your time when using it and in the meanwhile not to forget your school work.If teens reduce time on their phones/laptops ect they could be increasing their chance of holding onto their knowledge before it runs away.
Whether you're a parent or a teenager your self reading this sheet, it's your choice to make this change happen , your responsibility.
We all want what's best for you..but the question is, do you?
Failing- is not often a choice although if you spend hours on meaningless things instead of doing what's best for you, it soon will be.
Everyone has a dream right?And of course anyone can make that dream come true if you succeed and work hard.Although if you're spending your time watching telly, texting, skyping etc by all means you won't have any chance of holding onto that dream.
Once upon a time a wise man said to use your time wisely (ha see what i did there
Remember I'm not telling you that you should bin your phone or lock your laptop in a cupboard and throw away the key because we both that's just plain mean.All i want is for you to think about what you're doing with your life right now, ask yourself 'Is this helping me get my GCSE/A-levels or is it pushing me towards the wrong path?' If you don't like your answer you could always change it you know
Revising leads to-
~A's in GCSE ~Awesome A- level grades
~That feeling when 100kg is lifted from your shoulders
~Oh and better future
Remember use your time wisely.
(Btw i got a 8C for this^)
