yeah do it, i wasn't the best/ didn't care too too much abbout it for 4 years. I broke a little, i learned soo much. it shaped what im majoring in college, it helped my public speaking/ persuasion. Reasearch skills and shit is helpful too, yeah u won't cut a card for a living but just to know about the world / be politcally enagaged. You won't cut ptx updates after college or h.s unless your into debate for a carreer but its def good to know the bills and know whats goin on in your country.
