Before this rant starts lets get a few (or rather a lot of) things clear:
1: I go to public school, so everyone there is either really dumb or really smart
2: I'm asian- Not to reinforce stereotypes or something but my parents are always pushing me to get straight A's (There much nicer than those asians portrayed in T.V though, that's for sure)
3: Because of my upbringing I was raised to be very concerned about my grades (I have cried about them even if they were passing grades). I'm a real hard worker- When I get put into a group project I always make sure to pull my weight. It eludes me how some people can be so... Lazy and stupid. I'm not mean about it- I won't blame someone if there not smart, I will if they are lazy though
4: I was tested to have college level reading and writing skills as a kid- I was offered an AP class in highschool but turned it down because the course was all nonfiction (Yeah, how smart of me to turn down a freakin AP class, I know)
5: Since I turned down the AP I was placed into an honors class. I thought "These people aren't college level, but they're still smart- I'm sure they won't be bad writers"
6: WAS I WRONG.
Right- So, we get put into groups for this writing assignment. It's due tomorrow, or rather, September 20th, 2019 for those who are reading this is the future. We're writing this story about a day in the life of a 1950's teenager. Everyone in the group took one chapter to do and I took two.
SO, this is the absolute BULLSHIT one of the members turned in for our story. Horrible formatting, grammar and punctuation. I'd understand if it was an academic class, but no- This is an honors class. Tell me, is this work here below the work of an honors student?
"I wake up to the sound of the alarm clock blaring in my ear while I turn and read 6:15. Ugh I moan as I slam my hand on the “off” button. I look in the mirror and flip my dirty blonde hair to the right as my radio catches my eye. I walk up and twist the knobs on the radio to see what is playing and per usual Elvis is on almost every station. As I continue to scan through the stations “Jailhouse Rock” by Elvis starts to play. Thankfully I found an Elvis song that I love and that will wake me up a bit. While I slide on my button down shirt and do all the buttons I dance to the beat of the Elvis music. Then I put my cardigan on over it and do my tie. After I put my pants on and do my hair I walk to the kitchen to see what breakfast is. “Good morning mom” I say. “I heard you blaring your music at 6:20am” my mom replied angrily. I don't know what to tell you I need music to get ready I annoyedly thought. Luckily my mom made Eggo Waffles which are my favorite breakfast food. We finally walk out of the car and get in so she can drive me to school and drive herself to work. After about five minutes we reached the school where I stood outside to wait for someone that I knew."
(Oh, and this is after I edited it- I tried to keep it as original as possible, but it had to be coherent, yeah?)
LIKE- WOMEN. WTF? THIS IS AN HONORS CLASS. H O N O R S.
I'm over here doing the formatting, editing, art and literally all the other shit and you're here giving me half a paper worth of work? You were supposed to write at the least one page! I WROTE 4!
I'm sorry for complaining- Jesus fuck what am I doing apologizing for in a rant?! A bloody rant!!!!
It's just- I don't want to be mean...
But since I know she was lazy on purpose I feel better about being cruel.
I'm so worried about the bad grade I KNOW we're going to get.
I- I don't want to fail.
I really don't.
I have to succeed.
If I don't succeed in that school, who will?
What a shitty writer she is.

Wow, feels good to curse like that even if it is on a screen and not out loud. Maybe I should try living a bit more, worry about my grades less...
