Thank you!

And that's just the tip of the iceberg, they've also completely gone on a tangent and changed rules not involving cheating at all.

This one is the one that infuriates me the most. Now, all club meetings require the presence of the club advisor. That's a teacher, mind you. How the hell is one teacher supposed to be at club meetings, especially when it's a very active club. It's like they don't trust us to be on our own.

Speaking of clubs, I was kicked from the debate club and I was the captain of it. Too debate-forward for them I guess. :<

Well, if you're on school property after school's out I can see why they'd want someone looking after you, but if you're just, I dunno, sitting together at lunch then that seems a little funny.

Do you go to a private school or something? Or have things changed a lot since I was in high school?

    How do you get kicked from the debate club when you're the captain anyway?

    I hope they actually debated it instead of all just deciding to kick you.

    Well, yeah, we are within the building. But for the past, I dunno, dozen or so years, they've been okay with it. It's just madness to ask one person to supervise a group when he or she probably won't have the time. And if they really enforce the rule, that'll mean less time for clubs.

    And nope, public. One of the most known school's in the United States, we're supposed to be elite. Supposed to be.

      In all seriousness, were you a particularly controversial captain during your time?

      I'm really not sure. I was given very few details about it, though it could possibly have to do with the fact I missed two meetings that I organized because I found it difficult to balance my athletics, band and school work all at once, so going to a club four days a week for two hours after school just found itself at the bottom of my list of priorities. Whatever, like I said, other things are more important.

      I guess so. It's really not compared to other people I hear about over the internet of course all of what I hear could be made up but I can't get any proof.

      Oh, trust me, they exist. One of my best friends is taking four AP classes this term, which means 6 next term (those are advanced classes). Not to mention she's also a part of god knows how many clubs. And she still has an amazing GPA.

          Thanks. It's pretty BS that you got kicked. Just because you're inactive for a while they decide to kick you? They could have done other things like had someone substitute in the case of your absence, or do something lesser like demote you and put someone else in your place. It would at least be better than kicking you from the club entirely. Without your consent...

          Speaking of captain, I'm the new president of the film club in my school. I feel nervous. ;;

            Pre-ordering games is cool. I've pre-ordered Halo 4 limited edition.

                Only other game I'm looking at for this year is that Kirby anniversary thing. Maybe. I don't know if I'd actually play it all that much. :/
