This is weighted so take that into consideration. Highest possible GPA with all AP's/honors classes with A+ is 5.33.

My semester GPA was 4.55.
My Senior year GPA was 4.3 (had to take stupid regular composition 1st semester).
High school GPA was 3.99.

Ah, congrats. It's a shame you couldn't bump up that high school GPA .01 though, huh?


I think my final high school GPA was a 4.53 followed by two more digits. I took two online AP classes that required pretty much no effort to try to bump my GPA up the second semester of my senior year. It worked, going from a 4.45 to that 4.53.


That's with academic classes being 4 quality points for an A, honors being 5, and AP being 6...oh, and no + or - involved in calculating grades.

Me and my dad are lobstermen.

Our boat is really slow (highest speed I've seen: 7 knots) so they steer so close to us in their massive speedboats and either rock **** **** out of us with their wake. The ones that really piss me off are the ones who intentionally drive over the buoy, cutting the line and losing the pot. You have no idea how much money we've lost on cut pots at the result of them being ran over (just in the past month).

GPA was just a number to me. Fun fact, I was in the 2nd quintile due to all of the try-hards in my grade. The thing is, I didn't even try this year. I probably studied for less than 10 hours cumulative this year. I just decided to take it easy and not stress out after a hellish junior year. Taking classes I enjoy made it so much easier to stay focused in class. Plus, my teachers were miles better than the first three years of highschool.

Honestly, my highschool years were meaningless to me. Freshman year I realized that the stupid homework we did in 5th grade up until 9th grade was completely pointless. They put you through so much stress that I couldn't continue that same mindset through high school. I just took it easy and let the grades fall where they may. Managed to get out of APUSH with a B after not doing any of the assigned readings. We had tri-weekly reading quizzes and I end up with on average 3/10 on them. Then I'd just make an A on the test and offset it. Never had an average below B- using this tactic. Luckily, I have a great memory so I can remember basically everything I've written down. Just have to wait until we take notes though.

Now, college is going to be a different beast.

Damn, that's rough. When I'm done with college, I'm hoping for a 9-5 job. Try to keep the hours as normal as possible.

It ain't that bad and tbh I actually like it, I get mon and tue off usually which kinda sucks for partying but as far as running errands and such not goes it's awesome, also going to a tuesday matinee movie is awesome cause half the time I'm the only one in the theatre lol.


I worked a part time job when I was 18, alternating 12 hour shifts, but instead of 6 to 6 or 8 to 8 or something, it was 3 to 3. Now that was brutal. 3pm to 3am wasn't bad cause I do that every day anyway but 3am to 3pm made me want to kill myself.

Croatia got robbed.

One of their players was clearly pulled down on the corner and Navas was offside.

He was even. I thought so too at first glance but the replay showed he was dead even with Iniesta.

Corluka was definitely pulled down on the corner though...

When I think of Roger Clemens, I think of this:



Not surprised in the least that he was found not guilty. Not that I trust the verdict, just that it seemed like a formality instead of an actual trial.

Very sad day as a Croatian fan, but I'll get over it. Go Czech Republic I guess

Also, all I can say to the Roger Clemens thing is lol.

http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/80...e-dunlap-coach



So, the top target for the Bobcats coaching search was an assistant coach/fill-in for Steve Lavin on a 13-19 St. John's team. Are you ****ing kidding me? After the draft "lottery" and this ****** hire, I am officially done with this "team". What a pitiful franchise. MJ is slowly dragging it further and further down until the league will be left with no other option than to move it again. The only further way for the organization to **** the bed would to be to draft Harrison Barnes with their second pick.

God, why did I even dignify this joke of a team with a post.
