Hi Michael,For this sentence could we say: study hard, don’t fool around like me/ don’t follow/ tread in my footsteps/ steps, my daughter/ son?

"Study hard so you won't become like me." also works

Chuan Kai Lin A plugin is a function you can add to a website. What you are seeing in this discussion thread is in fact the Facebook comment plugin.
