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.

    Its my best friends birthday party on Friday and I still don't know what to get her. She's turning 12 and she loves: guardians of the galaxy and Shopping at Newlook. she wears jewellery quite likes hair and beauty products and enjoys watching movies, going to music concerts ( she likes Taylor Swift) and apple products. I'd rather not use gift cards because they're like the lazy option out and she's my Best friend but if you can think of a great brand for her then ok.

    Talk to your parents about it. Tell them you didn't like your Christmas gift, and don't let your brother boss you around. Your parents can, your brother can't. Your parents gave you life, sorry to tell you but they can do anything they want if it's legal. But your brother can't. Let your parents know that you shouldn't have gotten in trouble for the stuff he doesn't. Tell them he makes you feel really awful and you don't like it. If they're good people they'll understand.

    I would stop being friends with her. I mean she should understand that it'd be mean to do that. It's hard to help your friend get through a breakup when you're dating the same person. Plus you don't even know if she was trying to break you guys up so she could be with him.

    You want to know if he likes you or not? Just ask him. It's not as bad as people say-I mean, it's a question. It looks like he does, so he probably does. It's not that big of a deal.

    Talk to your friend. Tell her that this is the first guy that's ever liked you but you don't want her to get mad at you for stealing him from her. But understand she likes him too so don't get mad if she doesn't want you dating him. Nicely decide which of you should get him instead of the other. Chances are she might be thinking the same thing.
