I told Mr. Jackson I'm going to start doing better in my classes so I can get better grades and graduate school. Mr. Jackson gave us alot of statistics on people who drop out, go to jail, and are unemployed and I don't want to become one of them. I want to be able to graduate and get a job to provide for myself and for my family when I get older. I also don't want to go to jail and not be there for my family.
I think the song started from the bottom by drake is about how he started from the bottom also meaning he was poor or didn't have that much. Then he says now his whole team is there which means that him and his friends achieved there dreams and goals in life that they wanted for a time. He had to work hard for what he got in life and he wants the credit for it and he rewards himself at times.
