If you're a perfectionist, having a 4.0 average can be a bitch, and unless you're a genius, that's probably what it took. I sometimes envy the folks who don't have to take their grades all that seriously. I'll probably stop caring as much once I get into college, but for right now I have to keep up my average.

I may choose the generic major where you can just pick a handful of papers and come out with a straight Bachelor of Communication. It's very appealing, and given I'm hoping that I won't exactly need a BCS in the future, my preferred option.

It's cool that the papers are the same for all in the first year, you then break it down to three choices in the second year (with a handful of remaining core papers, again, still relevant), and then a major for the third year, so you aren't wasting your time.
Ah, right, that's a much more convenient structure than in Arts, where if you change your mind halfway through, your earlier courses mean fuck-all. And if you don't need a BCS after university, what do you plan on doing? Are you serious about flying?

(I wouldn't be kidding if I said that if I had the vision to drive, I would throw away an academic career to drive trains.)

What pisses me off is that I know I'm smart enough to have one, but too lazy to actually DO it. Plus the fact that i spread myself so thin with various extra curric activies and a job and whatnot.

I should stop whining. Sorry

For the record, I'm a total science nerd.

Math can go fuck itself. Every branch of it.

It's probably a bit more intense than the geology I covered in school, which I enjoyed.

I found them both too easy. In science, I was wildly ahead of everybody in my grade at the end of grade nine, so people were stunned when I didn't pick a single science subject in grade ten. But you know why I was so far ahead? I was BORED SHITLESS. I'd blitz through the textbook because I had nothing else to do in class, and a teacher who didn't really like it if I tried to read a work of fiction to pass the time.

At least I care about the Humanities.

You're sorry about whining? I've been bitching ever since I came in here.

I've always taken my grades personally, even when I was little I took it to heart. I've come to find out that they're really not as important as so many make them out to be, and my priorities would be best served elsewhere. Take that advice and just do the best you can. Obviously, if you have a scholarship, you're pretty sharp, and I encourage you to try, but don't kill yourself over it like I have in the past.
