Fucked off in high school.
4.0 and going hard right now in college
For some reason I assumed you were already done with college.
Keep it up. rops:
Due to my bi-polar disorder and ADHD, I've always been on a rollercoaster academically.
I like to say that my mind is like a strobe light... just scattered all over the place... however, there are times when it's like a laser beam and I amaze myself... then other times, when it's like a flickering flashlight and I'm no different from a miserable bum on the corner.
I should've had Ritalin or Adderall made available to me since I was 14... I would probably be splitting atoms right now...
Figure id contribute the OG thread also...
9-11th: Did just enough to play sports. 11th grade got into the street/club scene a lil too much, quit sports grades went with that.
12th: Didnt even bother taking tests anymore, have not done any real homework since freshman year. Dropped out 1/4 way through.
Though it feels i had a great college life from all the college parties ive survived from age 16-21...
I didnt go to college for anything besides partying until 21, that was a Community College and that lasted about 3 months.
...rollercoaster rides can be fun, but also screamishly scary at times ~ sadly there's no golden middle about them.
So in a way you were either charged up or running on a low battery, depending on the class you took...
(hypothetically speaking)...Ritalin would probably make you spaced out, so it would numb you for the most part and probably make you sleepy ~ and if that was the occurred case, it would mean that the medicine would be prescribed for the wrong person (child). With a hyperkinetic child who isn't associated with problems such as depression, and who isn't distracted because he/she is experiencing emotional distress due to violence, Ritalin will definitely help, because it will calm them down. Another thing is, if the medicine receives a child with mental illness, because then the medicine is exactly of the opposite effect than desired.
Psycho-stimulant doesn't fully cure, but only alleviates the symptoms. Ritalin calms children down, helps them to focus and concentrate. Partial disappointment is reasonable, because sometimes we expect too much of modern medicine. In resolving the plight of an individual child, alleviation can help a bit, though.
Ty so much...
Would you ever consider going back to college?
Im ballin pretty hard already @ 24, think ill be alright.
But i would def go back if I was 18, college scene was fun as hell.
I was a C student up until 9th grade when I started to blossom academically and became an A-B student in highschool.
College life was awesome in many ways...kept a's and b's but got bored until I broke up with my highschool piece and started the single life up again....that's when my grades took a hit. It was either get some pussy or study...hard choices had me trippin' for the longest. but I got what I came for....Herpes!..lol....jk...a degree gotdammit.
the ultimate underacheiver....
i went into high school in an honors class. got tired of being " the smart 1" and instantly became " the class clown". was kicked out the class the following year and was put in with the regular kids. i never did homework or assignments and somehow i passed with a regents H.S diploma(some of the honors kids didnt even get that)
went to a trade school cuz i wasnt supposed to graduate HS in time(even though i did) so i never took my SAT's. Same thing happened where i found myself as being the smart kid and hated it. acted up in that school too. i even had a teacher pull a blade on me.
i tried doing community college last year but yet again i lost the drive and just dropped out while almost having a 4.0. i would have had it if 1 teacher didnt screw me over while i was out with my bloodclot situation.
School and I dont mix. i dont like having to do unnecessary work so i just dont do it.
now i make almost 40k a year with benefits. i could be making around 60k if i actually threw my youth away. im comfortabile so i dont mind. hopefully no kids come along, then ill regret it.
I've seen porno's with similar plot twists. I'll show you "extracurricular activity" MMMMMM
I bet the principal got 6-7 inches of extra credit. lml
Then it all worked out.
When people say all roads lead to Rome, they should stand corrected, that in fact all situations lead to porn scripts.
the first porn script was made in rome.... snapple fact
Booble and Chikipedia can't verify your claim. =/
no physical proof.....
its like god. you just gotta have faith
If by "god" you mean Morgan Freeman, then yes.
Otherwise, no go.
I was on the honor roll in Elementary, High school, College and University.
I was also the valedictorian one and class President for two terms.
School was pretty easy for me, I breezed through it.
I liked going to School and was an excellent student tbh.
I'm still friends with one of my high school teachers and keep in regular contact with one of my more eccentric, but brilliant, professors.
I miss school... lol.
As for successful... which usually means how much money one can win (which is a stupid, degenerate measure of success imo) I've always done good.
In elementary I had two (very very) small businesses.
1. Was a doll theater. The premise was simple, invite some friends over - get my mom to cook stuff (for free, no cost to me) charge my friends 50c to a dollar depending on what I could get from them and what their family could afford and then pay Julie 1 dollar to read the story while I acted the story out with hilarity behind a curtain with stuffed animals and dolls.
2. Was a hunting gathering business of berry pies (which again mom cooked for free as long as she could keep one.) made with fresh berries picked from the forest. --- and Frog legs, fresh, again from the same forest. It worked well until one year, there just weren't enough frogs and I think some asshole found my berries.
In Highschool / College.
I seriously saw the dotcom scam and went all in - fixing machines, putting up systems, networking, selling systems, recycling systems... registering domains, creating websites and games.
I sold the whole company when I was mid-way through college because it was becoming too much to run and stay in school at the same time.
I've always been successful money-wise but it wasn't because of school, I think it was because of my proneness to boredom. I can't stand doing nothing, or "hanging out" and wasting time...
The best ideas are born out of boredom.
Speaking for myself; in life I was always interested particularly in the satisfaction, which my brain generated doing creative work. In all areas. All the capital that I've ever earned, was literally a byproduct of my immeasurable need for creating. And it's been a little under a decade, since earning capital isn't an activity that I'd rank among the top ten priorities. And I never considered it to be among the top three.
i was starting to do better in high school my senior year,i had done bad in a lot of math classes and failed a couple of them and had to retake them the next year,the rest of the classes i naturally did pretty good
i at least had C's in the rest of my classes except for like english my senior year,
i was doing better,and i got suspended for weed(long story)
i didnt have any,but we would smoke before school and this cop was grillin me hard and i was an 18 year old kid,and i knew i smelled really bad,cuz we smoked with the windows up that day,really cold,that morning
what made me do it was most of my teachers seemed to never care,im sure some noticed before,but this one librarian,the type that wanted to get involved with her student's life,she was the one who sent me to the office,cuz i was so worried about what people would say i forgot my stuff in my car,lol
so i was high out my mind and i went up and asked her to get my stuff,so she sent me to the office for a pass,and i walked up there,and she radioed up there to check me out,worst to worst,i was a teachers aide for her,lol but i hardly would say anything so i figured if i was just quiet,it would just be like with all the other teachers,just sit there for 50 min. and then i would be done,normally i didnt have to ask her anything....i knew what to do when i walked in each day...
i only got 2 referrals(write ups) all through high school(real quiet)
i had to take after school computer make up classes to graduate
then i went to community college on and off
it was problems with paying for classes,applying for financial aid etc
i eventually got some help with that but it was with computer programming instead of journalism i was kind of interested in that some,and i wanted to make my family happy,so i gave up on the journalism idea to get some financial help,at first it seemed to be going ok,but then their was this one class,that was hard as hell,and the professor was a brainiac when it came to the class,and he talked real fast and used all types of terminology,really hard to understand him...
plus we only had that class once a week,so if you got lost in that class in one session,you got way lost
i got so lost i couldnt even pass open book tests....the thing was the tests were from the whole entire book,not just certain chapters
back then i think i couldve cared less
i wanted to some day become a sportswriter and i was just aggravated and the lack of support i got from the financial aid dept about that
it all happened so fast i hardly knew it was over til i offically failed that class
i had to end up paying for the class and the books,and that was it
been working ever since
^I've noticed that math's a common problem for a lot of students ~ mostly because the professors don't know how to properly explain so that everyone would get it. I had a lot of people in my hs math classes, that spent a fortune on math tutors, same went for chemistry and physics.
