how?


uhmmm...
I was asking her about velocity and distance
and she told me that the circumference of this motor I was using would be the distance...
so we made up this formula that said (distance divided by circumference) divided by time would equal the amount of revolutions or something like that ^_^;;

I need to test it out still but whatever... it's better than failing my science project ¬_¬;;

I had a project for one module that required around 5-6 weeks worth of work. But I procrastinated (as I would always) and started doing around 5 days before submission. I worked for the last 2-3 consecutive days non-stop without sleep, and still in my opinion the out come was totally screwed up. I gave up on that module and it turned out I got an A.

i forgot there was a test on a book we were reading and i found out there actually was a test when i entered the class so i had no time to take the book out and read. no problem! grabbed my friends sidekick and sparksnote-ed that shit superfast.
results:B wootwoot

and there was this one time i was late during a tardy-sweep [all classes are told to lock their doors and any late students are reported and given detention] so i was like "shit", so i run to the counseling office and to my counselor [who i'm pretty chill with cuz she was my teacher in middle school] and i pretend that i came to visit [u know, im like hiiii and long time no see and stuff] and we talk for maybe 5 minutes and then i'm like "oh my god, the bell rang! I'm late, what do i do??" and she's like "oh dont worry, i'll write you a pass" lol savedddddddd

Last year when I was in 5th grade there was only one highly intelligent person in my class, she was my rival for the "Lamp of Learning" plaque, awarded to only one person per class. First term, I beat her by 1 A, 2nd term, I died and got 4 B's, she got way better than me >.< 3rd term, I got all A's except for PE and so did she. But although 2nd term I totally died, because my rival was a stupid idiot, she got into lots of trouble for calling the teachers mother a loser, bullying, etc. So in the end, I won the plaque. Since I acted all nice and stuff to everyone, and for the plaque, you must exceed academically and be nice, helpful, cooperative etc.

heh... there was that one time before school began in september...

I wrote 3 papers on 3 different books ¬_¬;;
all of them had to be turned in the first day of class... and I had finished reading the last book a week before school started

2 days of paper writing w/ my cousin leaning over my shoulder to "check her email" every couple of minutes -_-;;

I finally finished the papers at 7 in the morning the day before school started :3

:D That's like.. inversion of the time I didn't go to any classes, skipped all the tests and managed to pull a D for the class.

...

But still not success.. unless you look at it like, I put in exponentially less effort to reap the same reward. Booya.

why put things on hold when given ample time? this work ethic will bite you in the ass if you bring it with you when you start working...


I actually started reading the first two books right after school got out...
and then the last book was grapes of wrath ¬_¬;;
*dot dot dot*
and the rest of my friends told me that was the most boring out of all of them... so I waited ¯\(°3°)/¯

In England, the final tests we do before leaving school are called GCSEs, about a month before they come up we are given that whole month off to study like crazy without any classes and are just called in for the tests as they come up and then we finish school completely.

I spent the entire month doing absolutely nothing for the entire month comstantly putting off revising until the night before my science and maths, which were both on the same day! So the night before I just cramed all night and got full marks on all the tests that day.
Unfortunately the other Maths test was the next day and I slept through in, only getting a D, when I could have got a C. Science I got FULL marks on.

To this day I don't how I pulled a day of full marks on all the tests, unfortunately I got a D or lower on just about every other subject I was taking lol

In college I had to take a communication class, which was full of bullshit task. One of them was a presentation which was worth 50% of the grade. Well I thought that no one would put an effort and I printed out two pictures (black and white n bad quality xP) and thought that I would bullshit the rest. WHAT A MISTAKE!!!!! The five that was in front of me made amazing PowerPoint present, leaflets ECT. They went the full works but lack in delivery. When I thought the hell with it and did the present as if I was teaching a class and the lecturer loving it and I got full marks.

Another way in which girls I don’t advise (coz provoke bitch fights) well is to use what god bless us!!!! Got full mark that way too!!!
