    I'm not doin too great in my chemistry class

    and I feel so stupid because all my tests come back with bad scores. I always think I understand, but the tests show that I just don't know what I'm doing. I hate feeling so stupid.

    that no matter how hard I try I still seem to fail. The worst part is even when I try my hardest to concentrate on what I should be doing I always end up distracted and without all my work done. It makes me feel hopeless.
