This year is different, I have all As. Just kidding that's far from true. In math I have a B-, science C-, language arts C-, and social studies B+. I didn't make it into advanced language arts this year either, but don't worry I'm doing that same stuff I was doing in 5th grade! Yes if either of my fifth grade teachers are reading this for some reason (specifically Mr.Moore) we are reading Touching Spirit Bear, which I would enjoy if she didn't suck all the life out of the book. I started giving up and going on strike. Based on the comments this year I'm not an idiot, they're legitimately trying to break my spirit. So this semester it was a flop and they won with my broken spirit, but next semester that's not going to happen.
But in my title of this blog post me being realistic, I used to be in a haze of ignorance of the ¨American Dream¨. I realized we don´t all have to be the same. We can do different things in our lives, not the standard of get best paying job you can even if you don´t really love it, get married have two kids work for the rest of your life, retire, and then die. I realize now that I don´t really want any of that. I also realize you don't have to be perfect. I´m trying to be realistic in where I set my goals and expectations of myself, even though many people tell me I´m capable to do more. Yes I probably am, but emotionally that will kill me.
I made this post mostly so my 5th grade teachers could maybe read it some how, they were the best teachers I've had so far in my schooling career. They seemed to be the only teachers who actually care about their students and seeing them succeed. I want to give props to them, and thank them for being such caring amazing teachers.
