We were actually talking about smoking in health today(oh wait, that's not ironic. All health is is teachers telling you that everything is evil and will kill you), and I love some of the kids answers of what their parents told them. One that stood out to me:
"If I ever catch you smoking, I'll light you up a ciggarete and make you eat it flame first." Now THAT is a hilarious, yet disturbing visual.
Dude, I know. I was exposed to it at a young age. My whole extended family smoked. (Many of them quit.) I had my first cig at 15 years old - Thought nothing of it.
I also hate walking out into public where I live with a cigarette and having all the *****y soccer moms look down on me like I'm the scum of the earth because I smoke. I've been told that I set a bad example for little kids - Well, OK, do your job as a ****ing parent and tell your little one that I'm doing is wrong.
Anyway, yeah, notecards. I really don't want to do them. My English teacher loves me so I can just come up with a ******** excuse like, "Oh, I left all my stuff at school and couldn't get it done," and she'd probably go, "You need to be more careful, Matt. Sorry. " haha
As for the HSPA's, I wouldn't know. I go to a private school (Bosco). We have to take the PSAT's as freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, though.
Seriously, you need to kick that. Don't wanna die young like my godfather.
And that's pretty stupid. Notecards? Why do they force us to use notecards? They're supposed to be there as a convenience, not an inconvenience.
I have HSPAs tomorrow. Everyone is freaking out. I'm not, despite missing half the year due to registration issues. I also missed a week due to bronchitis, and I walked in on my 1st day back, took a test I had no material for, and got a straight across 100. yes, I'm that awesome.
I have to write a research paper for a midterm grade in my English class.
My teacher is making us go through this step-by-step process leading up to the paper; Tonight, it's ****ing notecards. I mean, really? We're juniors in ****ing high school. We're not retarded. I literally asked her in the middle of class today, "Are research papers in college going to be this much of a hassle?" Of course, she said "No."
I could be sparking up a nice Marlboro 27 and playing Black Ops right now, but no, I'm stuck doing retarded notecards that I don't need to do to get a 95 or higher on this ****ing paper.
(Yes, I'm addicted to cigarettes, BTW. I remember you saying something about it to me in another TaN. It's an awful, awful habit. )
