It's Not Enough
When it comes to school, I am smart. Math is simple for me, Science classes bore, I'm better at speaking than my English teacher (who sounds like a hill-billy -_-), and I easily get A's on my essays. I'm not trying to sound boastful or arrogant, I'm just trying to explain myself. The thing is, I may be book smart, but I'm afraid that that's not going to be enough later on in life. I'm not very good at talking to people unless I'm reading a pre-written speech. I may be able to figure out complex math problems but when it comes to how long to put something in the microwave my common sense meter drops. I can pass a test easy on just memory w/ no studying required, but I can't remember what someone asked me to do five minutes after they ask. I guess being smart is a good thing, and I tell myself that it doesn't matter if people like you if you can't do good on the SAT's or get into college, but I'm smart enough to know that I am lying.
