Why does it get in the way of fun.  School leads to futures and it is stressful.  Why can't school be without grades.  That'd be the life.  
Nothing worthwhile is easily attained.  All this stress and hard work is going to pay off in 1.5 years when I become a doctor of pharmacy.  
maybe then I can enjoy video games more.  Until then, all I have is music and an occasional hour or 2 to play video games here and there.  Definitely unfortunate.
