You mean the book?
I've read it. It's a book of tactics.

Of course the group name is signifying The Art of War in actuality and not the book.

I have not read that. It's more of military philosophy rather than strategy.
I have read The Prince and Livy Discourses.

Really?? I want to read the Prince one day. I heard it is really good. It's supposed to teach and educate one on how to be a leader and have etiquette I remember some thing from it like its better to be feared than loved, I particularly learned why its better to be feared then loved. Because not everyone is gonna love you (and obey you through love) but when you instill fear then everyone obeys. . . whether they like you or not. totally awesome. I'll probably study that in college or something.

For a leader it is first and foremost best to be trusted.
If you cannot be trusted you must be feared.
However being feared has even more disadvantages.

true. I guess you can only apply that to certain instances. when ever I get the chance to read I should take advantage of it.

okay so I am in the AICE magnet program at my current school and because of my noise environment and troubled atmosphere, plus financial problems. I'm in a struggle. I have the option to move one time. If not now, I can't move till three more years when I get into college. In moving I have some positives and negatives.

The positives are that my mother could go back to school to get a better job, escape forclosure of not two of the houses but one only. I could get into the IB magnet program, which has more oppurtunities and is more challenging. My mother could support me more by picking me up after school and keeping me on track with my school work. We could afford all the expenses totally. Its a better area then where I live. It's cleaner, the people are friendlier and I don't have to deal with a certain demographic that negatively populates my area. I could be in a more diverse area. And the that I would go to is rated by the News Week as in the top schools in america as in the 160's. Its a good school. My mom could support my brother who goes to community college in that area. Its only 200 miles from where I live now.

The negatives are that I'm afraid that the school might be too hard for me because if I move I'd be going in late. I'd get 3 more classes in which I missed the first 2 months of school of them. I'm afraid that it might be too much for me and that I'm holding myself at higher standards then I am capable of or am willing to do. I have extremely bad habits of laziness and procrastination. Another problem is getting accepted for housing because most complexes don't allow german shepherd mixes, another problem. My mum is also afraid that change could be bad for me. My only problem I believe is catching up and staying on top of my studies. Its such a smart school. I'm in the top 10% of my current school, when I move. . . I won't be anymore, but thats just something small. ahh. I'm losing faith in myself and confidence, thats not like me, I know. Let's not talk about my self assurance...thats gone also, its been gone for years already.

I don't know what to do. move or don't move. I'm falling behind and I think that moving could enable me to get a new start. OR it could turn around and bite me and the butt! I'm just afraid. So much is at stake, its not only for my sake or new and a better beginning but a chance for my mom to start over. So much is on my back its a burden! ugh!! How can a 14 y/o girl make such big decisions? I don't even have any aspiration!! I'm stressed and my body isn't taking it too well either. Plus on top of all of this thinking, I have a paper to do and no sleep tonight. help...

Hmm... I see.
Well first I will ask a question.

If you do make the move, would it be livable if you find the potential issues not possible to overcome?
That would be the worst case scenario. Think of that as a situation and compare it's pros with the pros of staying. Tell me this and I will analyze further.

It doesn't depend one whether it is livable or not. there's no turning back once I make the move. If the issues appear then its a matter of what do I do to fix it. If I do bad I get the boot from the magnet program and lose the possible chances of being in a magnet program at all and that is a big demerit not only for my record, but for me personally. I guess not really for me personally. I'd kill my ego and confidence.

Well I can provide no further advice if you cannot answer that question. You may not see it as relative, but then again you must take into consideration that you do not know the method in which I most effectively solve problems.
