Ever felt like all those time spent on watching series after series of anime would be better spent on something like: homework, reading a book...or even picking up another language? If I calculate it out...Anime does waste a lot of my time. Yet, I don't regret it. Lol, and people think crack is bad...
No, not really. I love anime, but watching maked me want 2 learn another language if that's what U mean

As you grow up, you watch less anime even as you try to hold on to your youth.

And if you watch it too long, it can waste your time. I can feel it somehow. I feel bad, yet so good. One part has to go.

Most of you here are still too young, but you'll realize it as you grow.

I don't study that much because of anime, but I still do my homework (I never forget them) and hell! My hardwork always pays off. I won't brag why because it may seem self-gratifying for me.

Simple note: No great paying companies will hire someone who has a bad grades...

Another note, Philippines has a grading system wherein even though you did not put effort, you'll still pass. That is probably the reason why a lot of people in my college (Malayan Colleges of Laguna) failed the basic Math010 (Fractions, Quadratic Equations, etc...). It may have been easy in high school, but not in college (College is easy too but a lot more hectic.. Hell, I'm even too busy for a week finishing my research paper).

As for this thread:

Procrastination is not a waste of time
Anime makes me procrastinate...
Therefore, anime is not a waste of time.


for me grades is just a form of measuring how much you know in a particular subject. although it is not a measurement of how capable you are in real life. people can change and improve oneslf. Getting high grades may reflect attitude such as hardwork and perseverance but not capacity to think, some people are not just as interested in school or really find it hard to study.

luck for some they don't need to do the usual things in school and they still pass. maybe that's the reason why they have lots of time to do other things such as watching anime.
for me, have to keep everything in balance so that i still have the best of both worlds.

Grades is also a form of encouragement for me. Besides, I need high grades badly since I'm maintaining something...
