I was a pretty good student because I just liked learning lots of things. I had a good habit of taking notes, too, and not normal school notes. I would draw and doodle about what the teacher was talking about and that helped me remember things better because I had those associations. My notebooks always looked like nonsense though.

I try to take notes but it always ends up distracting me more than it helps :p

I just "listen" but apparently that's not good enough for some teachers, to be intently listening to what they're teaching. pfffffff tl;dr I can't take notes lol

I tend to drift off, but I'm still semi-aware, so I remember everything later. For example, I've been in a Chemistry lesson, remembered important points that my English teacher said 3 hours before, and started writing them down.

I've been scolded a lot for doing it, though xD

    I'm split in the middle. I tend to take notes while nodding off at the same time. I don't know how I'm able to do that.

    Sometimes I'm quite tryhard about taking notes. Other times I just can't focus.

    I suck at being a student.

    Oh my god, are we talking about our behavior in class?

    I'd be the kid texting underneath the table and sleeping, and still be managing to scrape by with rather decent grades, if I do say so myself.

      It's because you're so little, Dipu. The teacher can't see you. :3

      Oi, are you making fun of my height. :c

      I'll have you know I'm 5 feet, 6 and 3/4 inches. 8D

      I also had a habit of going to the "bathroom" if you catch my drift.

      Ehh. It varies.
      Some of the time, I was the only one in the class who is actually listening and taking notes. Others, I was just as inattentive as everyone else. But we had some fun times. Teasing, paper fight, throwing things at each other. The teacher was very tolerant of us, and even threw in his own jokes, so we never got in trouble. He did snap at a guy for making a Nazi joke, though.

        Oh my, I totally... just thought the worst thing possible when you said that. Of course, you just use it as an excuse to get out of class xD

          I was a horrible student in high school D:
          I didn't have any behavioral issues but I definitely did not pay attention/take notes. Which is really kicking my butt now in college.

            Height now? 5 ft 11, above average in terms of Asian level.

            As for class behaviour, I am the class joker and the slacker who always doesn't does his homework and always jokes with the teacher.

            Results wise... its usually a mixture of Bs and Cs with an occasional A or D.

            When it came to exams, I was great. The classwork, however, urghhhh.

            Lol honestly those people are boring. If you don't obsess over grades, I'm fine with you, but if all you do is complain about your grades then I start to dislike you a little :p

            I get A's. A 3.7 GPA is damn near blasphemous, but I can't complain cuz I did hardly better this semester. I have a terrible work ethic, which desperately must be fixed. As many of you already now (or are vabout to know), I just put off 6 hours of lecture material on cardiology. So I will try to zip through all of that tomorrow.

            @ droomph u mad bro?

            I'm 5'8" with stubby legs.

            I'm nothing compared to my brother who graduated as his class' Salutatorian + already has his AA degree. I need to really pick up the slack.

            I'm between 5'6'' and 5'7'' in height. I'm never too sure.

            There was this guy in one of my biology classes who would never shut up about how he was "ready for this test", "studied weeks in advance" and whenever he'd get an A, it would always piss me off because of how smug he got.
