Don’t worry, anon, I succeeded just fine.
I don’t know how to explain this without sounding like an arrogant bitch…blergh…okay, well, I read a lot and I’m pretty intelligent, so I basically coasted by on my memory and glancing over material right before a test. I usually scored really high on my tests but never turned in any homework, so it balanced out. And I got really high ACT and SAT scores, so I didn’t have trouble getting into college. But yeah, I pretty much got by in school by being charming.
(At some point I need to post the essay I wrote about Teen Titans for my chemistry class. I was supposed to write about titanium but I didn’t feel like it. I got an A.)
(Also, I once passed a geometry class by writing a poem about geometry.)
(And I aced one of my last college literature classes by, instead of writing an essay, writing a story about a Literary Idol competition where the various authors we’d studied were the competitors, and the judges were Victor Hugo, Emily Dickinson, J.K. Rowling, and Stephenie Meyer. The story ended with Rowling smacking down Meyer like the hand of God. My professor actually kept it.)
And I am twenty-four years old! I graduated from college with a degree in theatre and English in 2009.
