First of all, a giant, glowing, neon purple FUUUUCK YOUUUUU to organic chemistry, my organic chemistry teacher, this entire school year in general, organic chemistry, whoever it was all those years ago who decided we needed to have a 12th grade instead of just 11 because I am so over high school, and organic chemistry.

I'm done. I finished the 11th grade today. I finished one of the worst years I've had. By this time next year, I'll be totally done with high school. But first, I need to talk about the organic chem final. It can be summed up in one picture, actually:

It was one of the worst experiences at school I've ever had, that's for sure. I studied this whole week and for a total of five hours yesterday with some friends. I still couldn't answer several questions, but there were some that I could, and that's much better than usual. Usually, I can only answer one or two questions on his tests. Like, no exaggeration. I answer one or two questions and then try desperately for partial credit while bullshitting all the other questions.

I failed organic chem this quarter, by the way... Oh, and this isn't just me being an idiot. I wasn't even the worst. I can still pass the semester if I make at least in the high 70s on the final. I'll pass for the year, though, with probably around a C-. It's bad enough for me to lose my 3.88 GPA, but it's the worst for my best friend who's gonna lose valedictorian and a 4.0. Wouldn't that just be total shit if someone who never had to suffer through this insane excuse of a class got to take her spot? 


I can't believe this year is over. It really doesn't seem like it took that long despite it being terrible. I changed a lot this year, but I think most of it was for the worse.

im done 4th year on the 25th

lol Chemistry Y U NO EASY?! at least my teacher gave us help in Acronyms like OILRIG (Oxidation Is Gain, Reduction Is Loss)

and i just figured out the American Grade/Year System :D

simple now they are 11 Scottish School years you Have to Do (P1-P7 & S1-S4) the equivalent of America's Grades 1-11, Plus Scotland had the Optional Nursery which is the same as America's Preschool, and after S4 you can Do S5 then S6 as optional years, which im assuming America has

so im finishing S4 as Ducky here is finishing 11th Grade, i feel smart now

This guy gave us no help on

This guy gave us no help on anything. He did not even make an attempt to make the material understandable at any point at all in the year. Luckily, he decided that he will never teach again. I guess my class was just some sort of cruel experiment.

America doesn't have two optional years like that. There's preschool, which is optional like you said, then kindergarten and 1st-12th, which are required, and after that comes college (4 years or longer), which is optional.

i found that out about collage

i just kept pitying American Collage Students paying all the green for it, yeah um America, we get it Free IN YOUR FACE AMERICA!

Actually i think ALL the Nordic Nations (Scotland, Norway, Denmark, Sweeden, Finland & Iceland) get it free

hell in England where you have to pay its like 10-15 times cheaper too AND FOR A BETTER EDUCATION, i laugh at that pay like crap tons a year for the 35th best education world wide

HEY all Scots, Get a Scottish Education, the Best in ALL of Europe, that officially makes us WAY better than America, while your here check out the free Healthcare service.

its like the Nordic's are toying with your country XD

Yeah, I'm REALLY freaking

Yeah, I'm REALLY freaking out about paying for college. I need to get scholarships, but my organic chemistry teacher seemed quite determined to make that extremely difficult. What's even worse is that it's going to cost me extra to not have to go to college in this miserable shithole state I live in unless I move this summer (which I more than likely won't because the house isn't selling). I can't go here. I just can't. I honestly wouldn't make it another four years here. I mean, my family used to be really wealthy in the 90s, so when I was born they put away some money for me to go to college on, and there's a lot but I don't think it'll cover all four years, so that's why I need the scholarships, which I'm going to have a harder time getting because of what my organic chemistry teacher did to my grade...

Yeah, sometimes it sucks to be an American. :(

my family is actually quite wealthy

and since theres only 2 war heros (which in Scotland IS BAD) in our family and one is dead, we have a comeback
people keep going
"oh yeah where was your family in ww1?!"
"in India with the English MAKING MONEY"

"where was your family in ww2?!"
"all around the world MAKING MORE MONEY!"

lol, i even related to an Astronaught :D
hell, we were even wanted at one point (some of us were in the IRA)
and theres alot of us in Sport and Liturture too
even Governers of American States at times
and Basically the lords of the Irish, NO JOKE i could go to Ireland and doors would be opened for me, id be treated like a king LOL

although all our Wealth is stored by few mainly my cousin Octavia and her parents who own large Plots of Land and are very selfish which causes inter family disputes :(

so, my closest members are Working Class, so yeah im poor, but were a FREAKING MASSIVE FAMILY

Honestly, if you're only learning to glue a bunch of pictures together on a posterboard, you should have to pay for it yourself.

A grand?

I use a Mac Mini, got it for $499 but I had the help of a family friend and their employee discount, works just fine for me : ) I have a really small desk so it fits perfectly.

collage: a technique of composing a work of art by pasting on a single surface various materials not normally associated with one another, as newspaper clippings, parts of photographs, theater tickets, and fragments of an envelope.
