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.

    You need to think of an idea in you head. I thought of a classic look with a modern twist. It is very 70s and 80s like but I added bright colors to it and it turn out perfectly. Know I need to find the skirt in my size.

I don't really think the word would be desperate. In the situation with your uncle, I think you we're maybe being a tad bit rude. I think you're mom may have been addressing a different situation if she claimed you were being desperate. Unless, of course, you have something against your uncle and really wanted him to leave, I'm going to assume your not desperate. Holley's right though. It was a little inconsiderate to tell him those things. Maybe an apology would be nice. As for what your mom was saying, she most liking referring to a different situation or misusing the word -it can happen when your frustrated.  Hope this clears things up a bit (:
