So I'm going to be a junior in high school and I got my report card back and I don't feel like I did great at all. I got two A's three B's and one C+ as the final grades for my sophomore year. I feel discouraged by this because I want to get into a good college like UCLA for example, but I know that they would never accept these kinds of grades. I feel like giving up and dropping out right now so should I drop out or continue to try and pray that the future isn't worse?

Definitely not. I dropped out, and I regret it. I'm assuming you're 15 about to be 16, which means I dropped out of high school when you were about one year old. I have spent all the time since then trying to make up for the ground I lost by dropping out and not getting an education. I have spent literally your entire life trying to make up for the poor choices of my youth. Are you willing to spend the next 15 years making up for 2 years of high school?
Think about what you're saying. You're afraid you won't reach your goal, so instead of trying harder to get what you want you're just gonna give up and go work at McD's till your 40? Imagine what the world would be like if great minds like Einstein, Tesla, Galileo, and Newton did that whenever they were faced with adversity. We'd all be sitting in candlelight praying the sun deity takes pity on us.
You're rocking a 3.25 GPA man. You seem like that type that aims high so that probably sounds low to you, but that's actually phenomenal. You know how many people there are who work twice as hard as you just to get to a 3.0?2
