Is it bad that i'm almost 16 and i don't know where anything is in the world? or like i can't read a world map?

I failed humanities last year and how do I learn all the countries, like I don 't even know what states are or what ever. I feel so dumb :/
No, it 's not bad. You know why? That 's what we have Google Maps and Yahoo Maps for! As technology progresses, the need to "know and memorize " geographic locations becomes less and less important. Although a general basis of things should be understood (like what you learned from elementary school/ middle school geography) But it really isn 't necessary to know EXACTLY where everything is. Don 't worry about it, the United States isn 't going to change it 's borders anytime soon, and I doubt you 'll be hopping to each of the 50 states (and puerto rico) anytime soon. Enjoy being 16, pass high school and have a good time. You 're young, don 't stress over these things. Use your phone 's GPS if you 're ever curious about where "states " are and what not.
Nope! You 're just like the rest of us ;) Welcome to America!
