Simon's Blog - March 15, 2006

March 15, 2006

My life has just taken a major turn of the [kwlink]disasterous[/kwlink] kind. In the space of two days, I've managed to get grounded, lose my allowance and become blacklisted by most of my teachers [kwlink]at school[/kwlink]. And it's all because of my laziness and a teacher who has a pretty closed-minded view of cheating.

You see, I had an essay due last week on a Midsummer's Nights Dream but I didn't get around to reading the play because it's kinda confusing and I've had a hard time focusing on school work ever since my friend, Tyler got an Xbox 360 for his birthday last month. I knew if I didn't get the essay done, my parents would be getting a phone call from my English teacher, which would seriously jeopardize my anticipated allowance increase. So, I went searching on the Internet and found an essay on A Midsummer's Night's Dream which looked really, really good. It was 10 pages long, had a bunch of words I didn't really understand and seemed to be a guaranteed A. I printed it off and put on a fancy cover page with my name on and handed it in.

Well, my Midsummer's Night's Dream essay soon turned into a Mid-Winter's Afternoon Nightmare. On Monday, my English teacher, Ms. Friesen, asked to speak to me after class about my essay. Before I had a chance to wipe the beads of sweat that were pouring from my forehead, my teacher went after me like a pitbull. She began asking me all sorts of questions about my essay, which I couldn't answer, so I just kept telling her, "Those are interesting questions. Let me think about that for a while."

But she didn't give me much time to think about anything. Instead, she told me that "there was absolutely no way you could've written this essay" and informed me I'd be getting an "F", a meeting with the principal and a phone call home to the 'rents. She said she'd looked up the essay on the internet herself and that it was done by a college student at Harvard. She was also really disappointed in me - but not nearly as disappointed as my parents, who are still somewhere between total rage and serious anger.

So, I'm taking quite a bit of heat at the moment. My parents have grounded me indefinitely, my allowance is gone and I can't play video games or skateboard until I've read the play for real and written an original essay. All I can say is: massive downer.

Have you ever cheated on a test at school before? Did you get caught? .

Later,
Simon

  • I have. Once or twice though. I will never do it again because when I cheated on a test once, the person I cheated off of had the answer wrong.

It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

He doesn't deserve you. But it's totally okay if you want to play it safe and not go up to him. You do you. :3

You can still talk to him when it comes to your anxiety attacks and all of that because I have those too every night so I know how it feels, but maybe you should wait. But at the end of the day it's your decision I'm just here to give advice

    I feel like that too. My best friend will always hang out with her 'new friends' that I have a really bad opinion about. My friend will treat me rudely all the time and sometimes make fun of me with her friends. But, when I needed her the most in my life, she was there for me, and I told her how I felt. She says that she just wants to hang out with more people and apologized, people can be a little teasy at times.  Also, after seeing each other for a long time, people make new friends and start hanging out with them more, it doesn't mean that she doesn't like you.  This may be different for you, but just tell her about it, she will have to know you feelings at one point.  Hope I helped you.
