    Nope. Totally normal. However, that 65 on the math exam could indicate a possible problem, since I usually get A's...but whatever.

    Dyslexia

    Although I've never been tested, I know that's what it is. It's been suggested several times, and I meet the criteria. I see numbers backwards or upside down. I mix up the easiest words and don't know my right from my left half the time. I can't read clocks either, unless it's...

    It has to do with my ADD I think. I mean, I don't know if it's a learning disorder scientifically, but it is almost impossible for me to read from text books, and study, and other normal things. I was better when I went to Montessori school when I was younger.
