Oh, so is it time for the 90s kids to start feeling old? Good times. It's a strange thing to realize things that were new in your childhood are pushing 20 years old already. I used to read about people thinking it would take ages for anything from the 90s to be considered "old" and that just feels odd to me since we're more than a decade removed from that era now.

Also, I've seen movies from pretty much every decade since the medium was invented. I think my favorite older movie out there is Harvey, starring James Stewart. Being raised on older sitcoms thanks to Nick at Nite made that style of acting much more accessible to me.

I was raised on Nick at Nite too! I really love I dream of Jeannie and Bewitched n_n both are excellent and funny shows, imo.

Man, yeah, I loved Bewitched. I can still remember the call in voting they did to decide the audience's favorite Darrin. (totally Dick York for me)

Yeah, Dick York was definitely my favorite Darrin as well. I just loved watching them... there was something special about them. B)

Hmm, good news? Well, umm... nope no good news lately. :( Got denied for the job I wanted, but I don't want to put everyone in a sour mood.

My wife made an excellent dinner with biscuits, chicken, and green beans in casserole though!

Does passing into 11th grade count as good news? If so, yes.

I'd say so! Moving on a grade is always good news, especially if you were worried about it.

I made straight A's all the way until the last semester of 9th grade. English class. I cried in class. :(

I got my first C in 10th grade. I really struggled with speaking up in English class because my teacher was aggressive and vulgar. :(

And then I spiraled downwards.

/making mostlyyy A's and B's in college... I was really good at English class in college! Got my first D in intermediate accounting II last semester...

don't worry about the english :p I got a D and managed to get it to a C just in time for the school year to end :) they somehow make it boring and the least interesting class where objectively it's the most intriguing class in terms of things to talk about.

The class average on the first exam was 55%. Let's just say that most students failed the class. I was lucky to barely get in the 60s. I'm retaking it and I see many familiar faces.

I didn't like English class in high school because the teachers were basically looking for one answer/interpretation and throwing out anything else. :/ I had more freedom in college, where I got an A. 8)

I mostly get B's and C's throughout college, sometimes A's. I have a D or two here or there, but that's either because I fell behind or because I blew off the class entirely because I didn't like it. Worse, I have to repeat one of them. Fun...

My absolute best semester in college so far has to be Spring of 2011. Got a 3.4 GPA on that semester.

Okay, so here's my finalized schedule for the Fall 2013 semester.

Written Communications (English) MWF: 9:30AM ~ 10:30AM
Pre-calculus 1 MW: 10:AM ~ 12:30PM
Java Programming MW: 1:30PM ~ 3PM
Japanese MWF: 3:30PM ~ 5:30PM
Everyday Chemistry (Online class)

Sheesh. A five hour dead period on Friday...

I thought I might as well load up hard. Last semester I only had one hard class and I ended up wasting all my free time.

I've always worked hard to be an A student. Graduated Highschool with a 95 and got the highest GPA average of my graduating program (4 years) at University.

I've struck the perfect balance between achieving and keeping expectations of myself low.
Pretend to do nothing all year and then High Distinctions on exams so by the time teachers realise I could have handled extra it's too late.

I also cop a fair amount of hate for it because I'm so effective at absorbing information without paying attention.

My course work averages C-/D+ but the worst exam i've done I got 84% and that was for year 11 chemistry. I think that's technically a B+.

I've got for the Fall 2013 semester:

- Genetics
- U.S. Government
- Macroeconomics

Hopefully the latter two classes will freshen my mind for debates in the D&D forum.

Plump, I REALLY wish I could do that. xD I'll pay attention more than anyone in class and not remember a thing when I get home.

As a Political Science major, I took a ton of classes about the US Government. xD The Presidency, the Legislative Branch, the Judiciary, Criminal Justice, Religion and Government... and that's just a SMALL handful. xD

And that's why people hate me for it, I'll be over in the corner on Facebook barely listening and the teacher asks me if I'm paying attention and without looking up or missing a beat I can recite the main ideas of the last 30 minutes.

I've been doing it for years though so I've had practise, and last minute exam cramming is your best friend ;D
