Started as a good day

This day started out so well. I got a new idea for a book that I'm now writing. I found out about this contest where you send in a novel that you've written, and you could win a publishing contract and an advance of 15,000 (50,000 if you win the grand prize). But, school isn't going so great. I started off the year with too advanced classes, they were way above my level. Not only did I feel stupid when I had to transfer to other ones, I got so behind on the assignments for my other classes. I ended up failing most of them. I'm failing two classes now, Algebra II and Physics. I'm just not good at them. I just messed up one of my last chances to bring my grades back up. This may seem dramatic, but I feel like I won't be able to accomplish my goals if I can't even pass these f-ing classes. Will I still be able to get into the college I want? A lot of the people that I look up to in my family, at least those who are blood-related to me, didn't think I'd be able to handle high school. Are they right? Feeling kinda depressed :(
