oh and lol, the high school i went to is now so ghetto, a couple years after i graduated, someone put a bomb (obviously just a little one) through that same vice principal's window. i thought it was karma for him letting his daughter and her buddies slide for buying research papers off the internet

i just remembered too what happened was they all got a 50 for their paper, which of course isn't a great grade but still, they all passed. i was like uhhh, you copy someone's work, you get a 0. not a 50. wait till they get to college where if you plagiarize, you get a 0 AND get kicked out of school.

Yeah, didn't sound like it would've been. I'm kind of a kiss-ass, too, but it's hard no to be. The class is easier with the teacher on your side.

yeah, i never hated any of the papers i wrote because i got to choose good topics, but i just hate the templates. i'd just much rather have been able to write the paper and cite my works like a traditional essay. but given how many kids in high school buy papers online and shit, i can see why they hold their hands and make them turn in cards, drafts, sources, etc.

I'm kind of glad we went through step-by-step though. It made it a fairly easy process. I'm just a procrastinator and put everything off until the night before it's due, but end up getting it done anyway. Someday it's going to epically fail, and I have a feeling that it'll be soon.

exactly. plus, being really nice to the teacher has its advantages. my chemistry teacher knew i knew the material so well he let me sleep in class (my previous class was close by so i'd get there, read the chapter, and do my homework before class even started!) while he taught everyone else. my biology teacher probably helped me out (srsly, i hate biology) in ways that had anyone known, he would've been fired. sometimes when placing the test on my desk, he'd hand me the answer key too

You know, because my concept is lacking...
False. I like both your playlists. I honestly don't know who I'll choose.

By the way I stopped telling people who and why I voted because you keep making fun of how I vote.

Screwtape, there is a difference between criticizing someone and making fun of them. I questioned how you were voting because it's not a concept tournament like Symphonic Island. I thought you were placing too much emphasis on a concept and not as much on the songs and how they worked as a cohesive package. That is not making fun of you.

i know, especially since they always say they have tools to find that stuff out. like what, they want to call their bluff? they think their teacher is too stupid or not tech savvy enough to know where to look?

Sarcastically making light of how I vote is making fun not criticizing. I can vote however I want. It is a hell of a lot better than the way most people do.

Not yet. I will in about an hour. I'm going to talk to her before I go to class. The library and college are in the same building.

Exactly. It's good-natured ribbing, if anything.

You can, and that's totally cool, but other people are allowed to vote how they want to. Even incorrectly.

I admit it is snobbish. I think however few people assess and give the kind of feedback I do. Re-read my posts from the first round. I put a lot into giving positive feedback.
