Something About Pride

I'm pretty sure that somewhere I read that Pride is one of the seven deadly sins.
Am I right, or did I just make that up?
Anyways, I'm not getting into sins. And religious stuff.
I am not a religious person. And I don't like getting into the details of what I do and don't believe. Because people always give me weird looks.
I'm not atheist or anything. But I don't have a specific religion.
Anyways, back to pride.
Or something like that.
I told you about all my projects right? Well, we just started second semester. Meaning all the teachers are pushing us to learn everything before the CSTs, blah blah blah.
Well, I had a project due Thursday. Me being me, I didn't start much until Sunday. It was a book report. And I'll let you in on a secret.
Come closer.
*whispers* I didn't actually finish the book. *GASP!*
I guess it's good that it was a research book report. Thanks to Google and Wikipedia, I didn't actually read the book.
I would have, but it was terribly annoying how boring it was. I just couldn't do it.
I really couldn't.
So, here's what I did.
I "read" the book. Found out all my info online. And I wrote it really nicely.
I put what I knew the teacher was wanted. She wanted deep stuff. I can do that. And mean it half of the time. So, my person was Jame K. Polk. Most people don't know who he is. So finding interesting things about him wasn't all that hard. I wrote my own opinion on him. And I did mean it. I actually thought those things about him.
He was a pretty good president and all. Maybe I'll write a post about him. Just so you know more about him.
Well, I got it back yesterday. And it was graded and all.
So guess what my score was. Out of 50.
*Jeopardy theme song*
I got a 50!
I'm so proud of myself! :)
(there's that pride again. :0 )
Anyways, report cards came out about two weeks ago. If you really want to know. I managed to get all A+'s.
You can go ahead and hate me now.
I swear, that's all people do.
You suck.
*Insert word here* you.
I hate you.
It's all the same. No one ever says "Good job" or "That must've been a lot of hard work" or anything that could otherwise be interpreted as positive.
It's not that I actually work all that hard though. I just naturally get good grades. I guess that's why people always say they hate me. I don't try all that hard. And I can easily get the highest grade in the class.
But still. I'm sick of all the negative energy.
Me being me, I kind of stay quiet. They can hate me all they want. I won't say a word.
And my best friend is always annoyed by that. See, she tries really hard. She's in a tough situation (like we all aren't). And she gets good grades. But then she'll try and compare them to mine. She always gets mad at me. Or if she gets a higher grade, she'll go on to brag that she's smarter than me.
Not that I mind. But I hate the assumptions. Because it doesn't mean I'm smarter than her if I get a higher grade. So why should it mean that for her?
Not that I complain. She is my best friend, after all.
She puts up with me, I can put up with her.
Which is my negative view of our friendship. It's a lot better than that, really.
I mean, we're teenage girls.
I'm talking about myself now. Huh.
Something is wrong with that.
I think I'll stop now. I'll post tomorrow about some book updates, writing updates, post updates.
Closer to March, I'll be doing an A to Z Challenge warm up. Just to get y'all excited. :)
Later, Gator.

  1. Congratulations on your good grades. I wish I was as smart as you to have researched my reading projects on the internet.

  2. @ Murees Dupes: Haha. I don't know if I would call it smart so much as laziness. The book was much too boring for my taste. I found the Internet much more entertaining. :)
    And thank you.

  3. I'm sorry. My iPod typed Dupes. I meant Dupe.


Thanks for stopping by! I do read every comment and I reply to all the ones that elicit some sort of response. So if you want, you can check back in a couple days to see if I replied.(:
