So I’ve always done well in school and crap. I was one of those “smart kids.” Everyone was always like, you’re smart! You’ll do great in life! Going to these magnet schools will be good for you later on life! Really? Is that really how it is? Because I just love waking up super early so I can catch the bus to my magnet school! Then in the afternoon, I get out at the same time as everyone else in the county, but guess who gets to get home an hour later since my magnet school is far away? Whoa, no way-me!
Then there’s the schoolwork. I mean, doing homework and stuff isn’t that bad, my brain can handle it. It’s my back that’s giving up on me. Sure, a piece of paper doesn’t weigh a whole lot. Neither does plastic, little pieces of metal, or whatever other crap I have in there. But the weight adds up. Steadily, not so slowly, but it adds up. Before I know it, that textbook becomes two textbooks, couple of binders, just three to four or ten packets of paper I get per class, and other random crap I “need” adds up to 50 pounds on a light day! Which leads me to why the heck the stereotypical nerd is fat?!? Carrying that up and down three flights of stairs each day and tell me where the fat nerd is.
So back to the homework. There’s always a crap load of it since teachers think smart people don’t have a life outside of school or something. Of course, with all that work, what life? Oh another stupid stereotype-smart people, or nerds, all work hard and do their work efficiently. HAHAHA no. We procrastinate just as much as everyone else does. In fact, I practically guarantee we procrastinate more. Though since we do, I must say I’ve gotten quite good at it.
Every weekend when I’m procrastinating on my hw, I go on Facebook and look through my news feed….all my everyday normal shade of dumb friends are like, going to the mall! Smiley face! So and so is going to this great party! Then there’s me…doing homework…! Not-so-smiley face…
So in the end, what’s so great about being a “smart kid?” To hell with it, I’d rather take the short bus with the rest of the dumb blondes.
