Review responses… I really just do this cause its fun. Things that people said are in this and what I say is in this.
"A case of sour grapes doesn't make for particularly entertaining reading. There will always be people with advantaged you don't have. You might as well just learn to live with it." - Tiefling
"(Agrees with Tiefling)
Have I mentioned, you're an idiot?" - Tenacious Surrender
Oh Goodness, where do I start. Lets start with Tiefling. Well I didn't put this here to be a whiney bee-yotch. To me this is about education and how I feel about it today. Yeah it makes me pissed off that these things happen, but that's not what this entire essay is about. You seem to be at least mildly intelligent, just a bit vicious, so I thought maybe you could figure that out. Pity.
And Tenacious Surrender you always give the most convincing arguments! I mean after I read your reviews I just can't help but think, "Wow! What was I thinking!?"
Thanks, you two.
"Seeing others get the easy track can be infuriating, but realize that in the end, if you are a hard worker, then you will get where you want to be. Don't let jealously or frustration make you work any less, and keep in mind that some Alternate schools, like homeschooling or virtual schools, also set very high standards for individuals like you. (You are not superior because you are a hard public school worker, I mean.)
Jeez, does it just make you want college or what? I'd love to be there already!" - Clemency Lime
I 100 agree with you, that is very true.
"You know what I also hate? People like me work their asses off all through high school, taking all AP and Honors classes. Up here, we don't get our GPAs inflated or anything for our trouble, like in some states. Actually, our GPAs suffer because we're often getting lower grades than we would have in other classes. Then, you have all the people taking the "regular" classes, many of them coasting through. Their GPAs, meanwhile, are inflated because of the ridiculousness of many of these classes. (I can tell you right now, the reason I stopped taking the "regular" classes was because we never did anything in half of them.) Who gets rewarded most of the time?
Yeah, that'd be the kids in the crap classes.
Anyway, sorry I ranted on you. I just thought I'd let you know I agree, is all. ;)"- ohthevoices
You totally got my point. And I completely understand how you feel, how obnoxious. I don't mind the rant. Haha.
"you have a few grammatical errors and word errors, like: sink of swim philosophy.. should be sink or swim.
i was talking with two girls who thought that they should be permitted to graduate even though they did not pass the CAHSEE test, which is basic grammar and math, and they had at least two chances to retake it. people will do everthying they can to not do anything." - Debohn Hied
Hehe, thanks for pointing that one out. I do that all the time and of course spell check never sees it. Damn machines!! I don't know if its because the R and the F are close on the keyboard or I'm just dumb when I type fast.
