Tombo - Disappointed

What is a test for...?

In second grade (or 2.7 grade to be exact) I took the CAT5 test.

Why am I mentioning this now? Because in that test I scored over two grades above my level on almost every subject and on serveral of them I scored in the 12+ grade level. Now my question today is, why didn't anyone see this and do something about it? Like bump me up several grade levels. Why are these tests only used to determine if someone should be held back and not also pushed forward?

There lies a fundamental problem with our school system today. C may be an "average" and passing grade, but A doesn't get you any closer to the next grade than a C does. Why? That kind of brings me to my outlook of "why try"

TV schedule and free time

I think that's about as late as I'll stay up. Also note that I may skip programs to do other things, like play a game on the computer or do more coding.

Also, my dad thinks I have all the free time in the world so he thinks I should go into business with him. ... He also mentioned disconnecting the internet to save on expenses. Well yeah, if you disconnect the internet of course I'm going to have all the free time in the world because then I won't be able to do the work I do now.

hmph... he thinks I don't work. yeah, right.

Which reminds me, I've been making a file manager for the PDI site. Have I ever mentioned how I do almost everything from scratch? >_>
