As I said before, gonna major in Culinary Arts. Studying for your hobby is the best thing in the world, as its basically allowing you to get paid in the future for doing your hobby. Love your job is the best mantra to go by, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Funny thing is that instead of asking the government to give you a kajillion dollars or you blow em up, they ask you for a kajillion dollars or they blow you up. Oh wait...

Ask some questions to shake things up. Teachers notice you that way.

But perhaps you don't want to be noticed.

    Ugh, I've had teachers like that and honestly... I always find myself sat there like "yeah I could do this all on my own". Not much you can do really, other than follow Scarf's suggestion; a boring teacher is a boring teacher. :/

    Try dealing with a chemistry teacher 3 years straight who can in one 45 minute class manage to fill up and erase a standard size whiteboard 4 times over. It was a delirious futile effort to even make sense of Chemistry, even if you loved the subject. You either needed the iron will to study by yourself and make sense of it on your own, or go to an out of school curriculum program. Got nothing but flat D's from that class, and I personally love chemistry. And this is a high school mandatory class we're talking bout here.

    My history teacher (not in a school; it's just a class) is actually really interesting. He fought in Vietnam and tells us war stories. He also makes fun of his other students, which is just amusing.

    I had a literary teacher who lived through WW2 as a child in liverpool. Listening to his rural life in the 50s was awesome.

    My current math teacher is pretty amusing. He's one of those older, southern gentlemen who infuses his speech with a lot of character. Definitely makes math a lot more interesting than it would otherwise be.

    Also, my last class was cancelled today, saw a sign on the door that said so. Go to the bathroom, come out, and see all of the students in there. I guess a big sign on the door wasn't enough to get their attention.

    I mean, its my opinion of course that its the fun one, cause I assume outside of the mandatory classes that won't help your major much, the fact that you get to learn how to pick a human mind down to the deepest most buried though is pretty amazing. Always considered Psychology myself, but I never had the grades to back it.

      Right now I'm majoring in accounting but I might end up changing it in college. I've considered criminology or a fitness related degree. My old football coach told me having an accounting degree could help me get in the FBI and I also read that in an old book about the FBI so I might stick with it if I'm still interested in joining it.

      How does linguistics sound for a college major? Though, I'm only a freshman, so its a long ways away :/.

      Spoiler:
      Watching WWII propaganda in JROTC now, also got an honor guard cord.

      Military discuss?

      Toujie, what is that thing in the gif exactly? Meant to ask before but forgot.

      If you're a freshman in high school... don't worry about college right now. Worry about surviving high school. o_o

      Ugh I hate people in public transportation...

      This lady was getting off her seat to go to the bus exit, so I assumed she was going off the same stop as me which was the next one. When the bus door finally opened people started going out but she stayed there, I thought she was waiting until everyone got off so I waited patiently behind her and even when everyone was off, she was still there! So I was like wtf? And tried to rush in front of her before the door closed but it was too late. The bus was leaving the stop already, so I had to get off at the next one.
      UGH! Why the hell do you get up and stand RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE DOOR?! ><

      Now that's a rant. But I dislike public transportation as well. New York City's subway system is so bipolar.

      Also, irrelevant, but PC should have a Valentine's Day themed event. Secret Valentines would be pretty neat, imo!

        In highschool you can tailor your classes to your career goals, too. For example, I want to an art HS so I took art every semester. Some HSs have more specific courses.

        Yea, I just had to let that out. People in public transportation are just 'AHH!'. If I wasn't so quiet, I would punch a person or two >=/

        For the Valentine's Day event. I only know of one for now lmao. The Pokemon Challenge, based on Valetine's Day "Love in the Cloud'

        The only time I used public transportation was when I used the bus my junior year of high school to get home from the place where my junior service project was at. My dad couldn't take me home everytime cause he was usually still at work when I got off and so I took the bus most of the time. And let me tell you, I didn't really like it the first few times cause I'd take the wrong bus and got lost a couple times. XD So I guess you cans say, I'm not really fond of public transportation but will probably have to use it when I finally get a job and get into college. (Yup I'm one of the few people my age not in college.)

        @Bloodex That's a Dalek from Doctor Who. The Doctor's greatest's enemy.

        And yes we should have a Valentine's event on PC. I'm not sure what kind events we'd have except maybe a battle tournament or a Egg Swap. Or a scavenger hunt where people find hidden Luvdisc throughout the forum?? And the person who finds the most would win a special emblem of course! Gen 6 should introduce a cupid based Pokemon.
