I really do consider myself one of those people that don't work themselves too much over school. I put in effort, I take school seriously, but I am fine with a B. My minimum goal is to make honor roll. My parents don't push me to extremes like many kids around here and I'm really happy for that, they just want me to put in effort.

And just for the sake of saying it, I do go to a public school.

I think it's best to go to public school and not be isolated from other kinds of people. It's still mostly going to be people of similar means since it's based on geographic location, but it's better than going to a private school where you are taught to look down on others or home school where you don't gain social interaction as much as you should.

It's amazing, the number of private schools around here when the public school system is one of the best in the state. The only situation for when I can see someone going to a private school is if the public school is atrocious, your child has special needs, or is beyond gifted in some sort of way, but even then, public school is your best bet.

Add to the building block of her forcing me not to write sci-fi or fantasy (she told me both ideas I had where off limits and she knew the work load I had that semester which made me even more pissed at her for denying me that). Yep it really was.

But I adapted. I used the short story collection instead to write about soldiers in World War II (two characters, one America and one German from beginning of the war for both to end).

And she gave me a D for it.. don't know the reasons why other than the grade.

Not that I really care about the grade since for some odd reason the internships I worked under her magazines that counted somehow (they weren't supposed to and miraculously counted as a credit each) and suddenly they negated the D grade.

I think it was her way maybe making up for that and the loads of mistakes she piled onto me that semester.

But enough of that..

It was more the opposite for me Forbush Man when it came to chosing private schools over public. Academic had nothing to do with it.

I chose private over public because of the tramatic experiences I had in 6th grade (friends who I thought where friends weren't and let's just leave it at that) and honestly the two public schools in my area that had the upper level (6-8th) and a private one.

I chose private so I could start a new life and a attempt to recoup. Which I judge was a good thing cause they where the ones who said I was close to an utter breakdown.

So I guess I fill that special needs option then.

What's this one B about?

(sorry that's just the South Asian in me coming out :P)

She made you 50 pages in a month? Was she a mental case?

You should tell her "It's not the quantity of writing that a writer produces but the quality of the pieces." then slap her with a 900-page copy of Ulysses ;)

About forty pages (all that crap I said included) plus the first twenty "corrected" and with "added" things to be written in a month's time.

And yes I would say she was greatly. I loved the bit where she stated to the class she be keeping the one part of our papers (the seven page part) and when she have the class again print them for the next time she have this class avialable (which was two years hey which would be now) could see and learn from.

And very tempting.. at least the professor (another one completely) who I gave my final 48 page portfolio (same semester with this class) realized that and gave me a pass (the final portfolio for the college has no grading scale save for pass or fail).

That's a bit much. My creative writing class last semester required a portfolio with all of our stories (we had three workshopped through the entire year) and all of our writing exercises. No page limits or any of that sillyness (although mine was probably about 40-odd pages now that I think about it because I wrote long weird stories to fuck with the people in my class because they were all prudish little English majors...).

You should have complained to the professor about time constraints.
SHABBA!

Just remember, apply and get accepted into college early, so that you can skip school, smoke pot, drink beer and chase women for the last year and half or so.

Oh wait, shit, I forgot, that's probably the opposite of good advice. My kids are so fucked when they come to me with questions. I'll have to rely on the old "Kids, do as I say, not as I do (or did)".
