Traditionally since high school started, I've been a 90%+ student (in Grade 11).

Ya I've never been extremely motivated outside of school, I mean I work and do well at it, but I've never done anything like I did in high school, even now I'm in university, but its more specific and something that engages me so its just easier all around.

I gave up with that. I know from last year parents are quick to backpedal on "anything"

It was simple for me.

Getting good grades was expected out of me. No bribes, no cash rewards, no car.

And if I got a bad grade, but they saw me try and study and do everything I can to earn the best possible grade then they were happy.

I was a regular on the honor roll during high school and received essentially nothing for my efforts.

But during film school my parents absolutely spoiled me, even though I had my own money - much unlike high school. I'll pay them back with a Razzie award one of these days.

Where did you end up going for university? I'm guessing your parents bought you a car because you were offered every scholarship available lol

I think I got paid some minimal amount if I get an A (20 bucks an A or something).

Really the deterrent was what would happen if I did badly. It would result in people (parents, brother or tutor) taking up a whole bunch of my time basically forcing me to study.

Once I realized that is what happens when I do badly, I just did well enough to avoid that!
