Note: If you don't care, or think it's sad that I'm asking a community about my problems, then don't post, please. While I respect your opinion, I'd rather not hear of it. Anyway. I'm 15, in Sophomore year. Class finals happen in 2 weeks. I AM SCREWED. Rewind, back to 1st grade. I'm in school, and I'm bored. Why? My elementary school didn't bother taking IQ tests or anything of the sort, so while I learn the stuff in a matter of minutes, other people take days. The work is incredibly easy, with me being able to get perfect As without even thinking. Of course, on all reports, they say "Student not working to full potential", but who's fault is that? The work remained rediculous until 6th grade, when I started to have to think about what I was doing. Still fine, got Bs and such. Bs throughout middle school. Now in High school, and I'm going to FAIL! Why? 1. I can't focus on anything for any amount of time, I always drift away. Chaos in computer classes. 2. I have NO study habits. At all. I've never needed to study, and they didn't teach studying. 3. I've never self-taught. I always played Videogames when I was younger, so I never thought about learning on my own. 4. I have NO note taking habits. I don't know how to take notes, how to be organized, or anything like that. 5. I have NO idea how to really put an effort into class. I'm too used to just lazing my way through to do anything. 6. My counselor sucks. Not meaning to insult, really, but she watches the clock and darts out the moment school ends, and takes extended lunch breaks, and sometimes has been gone for days on end(3 days before Thanksgiving comes into mind). 7. I'm getting low Cs in all my classes, and unless I actually learn the stuff quickly, I'm screwed. Problem? Computers. I don't have Java, so I can't teach myself it. The teacher was a nut, anyway. -.- 8. Standardized tests are no issue. They make them way too easy. However, schools apparently don't look at the test scores to see if students MIGHT be more advanced then they are. I just don't know what to do. I'm stuck between not being able to work, not knowing HOW to work, and still not being interested in classes.(2 classes are too slow, 1 of the slow classes are RETARDEDLY easy, and the other two are just UGH to me(History and Biology[I normally like Biology, but they're teaching the STRUCTURE OF DNA, FFS. It's 10th grade, We shouldn't spend 3 days on A-T C-G A-U C-G Sugar-Phosphate Base-Hydrogen bonds, then DOING A FREAKING 50 POINT ARTS AND CRAFTS OF MAKING A DNA? WHY MAKE AN ART PROJECT WORTH SO MUCH IN SCIENCE???) >_< What do I do? I'm gonna fail my Math and Programming if I don't learn the stuff, and I gotta spend time on History too, just to make sure I know everything. Not doing well in Biology because I refuse to do art projects for half my grade. (Note: all contradictions are accidental, and I'll clarify if needed) Going nuts here, I'm gonna fail, and I CAN'T fail, otherwise I can't go on, and kids who fail don't go to college, where supposedly we learn at a much faster pace, and at what we WANT to learn.
