Paulson, your high school starts at 8:30?! DAMN! I was already out of my first class by then when I was in HS... I remember the bus was here by 7:00, I was there by 7:30, and the first bell rang at 7:40, late bell at 7:45. In fact, it's still like that (I just drove by my old bus stop and saw kids standing around at 6:45 AM).
I vaguely remember having classes that started around 7:45AM...yeah...I got up around 7...showered...went back to bed for too long...got to school about 5 minutes late (occasionally dead on time)...took another nap...went to 2nd class...took another nap...went to 3rd class by which time I'd had enough sleep...went to lunch...4th class was another nap (food makes me logy)...then the rest of the day was kind of random, sometimes awake, sometimes not, depended on what was going on that day.
2.7 GPA in high school...pretty nearly aced every test...never did a 'project' of any kind...never handed in a single report or essay (well okay, maybe over the course of 4 years I did 2 or 3)...failed Speech 4 times (as in public speaking, not learning how to talk)...passed PhysEd every year only by the fact that I went outside and didn't sit down.
Made a grand total of ONE friend who may still remember my name...haven't seen her for 2 years. Never went on a date even once. Was in fear for my life a few times. Scared the hell out of most of my classmates quite often.
I'm not sure if I liked high school or not...hindsight in my case is kind of blurry.
i started my junior year at high school today, cool thing is that they ran out of chemistyr classes so they made one at 6th period and I go to school at 9:00 and come home at 3:00 (I'm suppose to go at 8:00 and leave at 2:00)
