 Hello, my name is Alexa Kemano. I'm a junior high student in Conroe Independent School District, Texas. I must admit, we have a good school district. The schools are safe, and they teach high quality learning compared to some across the country, but, with all of that good education, there comes a huge amount of pressure that falls on all of us students. "have to have all A's.....have to make it to class on time.....have to finish your immense amount of homework.....have to get up before the sun does.....". Whenever I try to point this out to people, their reaction is something like; "Well, that's just how junior high works", or, "don't worry, you'll get used to it!"

  Well, I'm sorry people, but I just don't think that's how it should work. The effects of all of this are very negative. I hardly get to spend any time with my family because of the amount of homework I get, and when I do, I'm not having fun with my family members, instead what's on my mind is the essay I still haven't gotten to yet. Not to mention the serious mental health issues. I don't really fall under this category, but, there are people that worry about their popularity on social media so much, that they bring that mindset to school with them. The piles upon piles of homework we get doesn't leave any time for us to do the things we love after school, giving us blue feelings that will eventually lead to depression, or anxiety. Since teens are naturally toxic, the pressure we are being put under is not helping it. 

  I've had so many friends that were pure turn into monsters just because of the serious pressure they were carrying the weight of. Teens and children who have it rough at home are more susceptible to these problems as well. 

  I know this isn't just happening in my school district, or my city, or my state, but it's happening all over the country, and I'm sick and tired of it. It's time we teens can lose a couple pounds of that pressure. Sign if you agree.
