    My parents were strict on me too, but I'm really glad that they were, looking back :3

    Speaking of old, how do you imagine yourself when you're going to be an old geezer? :3

      That's a good question for OVP. I'm not sure; but maybe a mean old lady

      Also, yes cats shed their whiskers, too. :3

      I figure I'll be insane. Possibly angry at everyone and everything. So pretty much how I am now. Haha.

      I figure I'd be the nice guy who's always helping around. And hopefully I'll be fit.

        Let's just say even in College/Uni over all 4 years I only went to 3 parties and even then I had to leave them at 2-3AM latest.

        Wasn't out past 10 in highschool, had to go to bed at 11 latest in highschool. Had to get A+ grades or get privileges taken away from me. Had chores to do every day. Had to earn everything I got given.

        My parents were also very loving though, so it balanced out. But yeah, I was never allowed to sleep over friends' houses. Only my cousin's house, and even then.. only like.. a few times in my life.

        Some of those stuffs sounds like my parents lol. Although they never forced me to be a grade A student, they knew I was really bad at school

        When I would get a B or even an A, I would be proud and when I showed it to my parents they were like oh, that's nice. But when I got a C or lower, I get a darn lecture about my grades. I just couldn't win :'[

        Letter grades always confuse me. And 87 is around a B or a B+? :c

        Same, Dipu. T:

        I'm surprised I didn't have a ticked off family upon getting a D+ on a test last year. I was just happy that I had passed, considering the majority of the class had failed. I had the highest score, tied with one other student.

        Letters in Quebec are used like this (Not sure about the other province)

        A= 90+
        B= 80-89
        C= 60-79
        D= 59-40
        E= Less than 39

        E is the equivalent of F in USA.

        That's different from how my teacher did it. Anything under 60% was an F. T:

        That's how it is at my school right now tho, Slendy

        If you don't have anything above 60%, you fail. They also don't use letters in the school I'm at right now.

        Ah, okay haha.
        I hadn't realized that it was anything out of the ordinary until you posted that. I'm just glad he isn't strict about other things. I've only seen him snap at people for talking too much and for making drug references.

        My cat is on the chair behind me, kicking me. I already am not even completely sitting on the chair so he has room to be there.

          I graduated highschool with a 97% average in my last semester. I graduated uni with a silver medal (highest GPA out of all 4 years in my course) and high honours.

          I worked damned hard to get those grades. I cried a lot in grade 10 and 11 because no matter how hard I studied I ended up with 69% and 64% in math. My lowest scores ever. :/ I blame my grade 10 teacher who never taught us properly. Older base formulas kept coming back to bite me.

          That were some really good grades Kura. Actually I have 2 of my friends who are awake 'till 4AM just to study. I couldn't do that myself.

          My lowest grade was probably a 20% or 30%. I'm more of a C student *_*

          I actually should be studying now; test tomorrow. T:
          Eh, I'll do it later.

          I couldn't do that either, Nathan. Mostly because I forget virtually everything I read, especially if I'm tired.

          Lowest grade for a specific test was like 58% or something like that. Same test I mentioned earlier. I feel smart now.

          He is so obsessed with having good grades that he forgets everything else. We call him "The Robot" or the "Old fashioned boy". Heck my school principals are referred respectively as "G-Dolph"-"James Bond" and "The Dinosaur".

          Pfft what's the fun in life if you spend the entire time worrying? ;D

          Haha, good luck with that, Dipu. Are you going to study or just wing it?
