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.

Report them to the principal. Tell them how you feel. If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )

    When your friend starts to talk about you, and stabs you in the back. then maybe it's time to move on. In friendships, there will always be times when your friend hurt your feelings, but if it's being repeated, then maybe it's time to let go. Because some things aren't worth it.

    You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

    Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
