wrong

I just took this quiz, based mostly on how inaccurate the last person who took it claimed it was (grammar).

Brainy Kid

In high school, you were acing AP classes or hanging out in the computer lab.

You may have been a bit of a geek back then, but now you're a total success!


I was IN AP classes. Acing them? Not so much. Further, I was lucky I knew where the computer lab was. The computer class I did take (Micro Computer Applications) turned out to be a vocational class for teaching the future hourly employees of the world how to use a 10-key. (I might add, I was awesome at 10-key).

I was not the only one duped by the title of the course. All of the non-vocational kids would peer over the top of their CRT's at each other, wondering what we were doing in this class which had a description hinting at some cool stuff. But we all became fairly good at Minesweeper, which is what we were told to do when we finished an assignment.

As per success? Oh, yes. It's hard to blog with all these stacks of money falling on my keyboard.

But... the Brainy Kid? I can tell you there were at least 81 kids brainier than me in my class. And they even got a special luncheon.

No, I think I was, and remain, The Bitter Kid.

I just took the quiz, and I agree that it is totally bogus.

Yeah, I don't think anyone would have described me as the 'Popular Kid'. This quiz is indeed just spitting out random answers.

I thought my answers were quite accurate. However, I just put in answers, because none of the given answers described me, as I remember highschool.

Jill said...

Yeah, I don't think anyone would describe me as "the arty kid." I actually don't think that if you asked anyone other than, maybe Ryan, to describe me, they'd have anything to say. I was "the invisible kid."

The League said...

No way! you were "Lampshades Jill".

Nah, people knew Jill in high school. Nobody ever forgets the girl who shivs the lunchlady.

Denise said...

Ummm..I knew Jill too! (Hey Girl!)
She was not invisible. She did hide out in the back row of the classroom sometimes. I know this because I hid there too!

It was so much easier to crack jokes in the back row. Although we were all clearly AP nerd style jokers.

Jill said...

I should have included, I liked being invisible! And, yeah, it was easier to crack jokes in physics/biology/chemistry/calculus from the back row. I guess that list of classes names me "The Nerdy Kid."

Hey Denise!

My memories of Denise are varied, but I was mostly impressed with her ability to unselfconsciously drop some colorful profanity. I always admired that.

Also, she shot a man in Reno just to watch him die.

The League said...

And Jill was not "invisible". That makes me so sad she would think that. I think it's safe to say we all totally tolerated Jill in high school. We had to. She had the only car we could fit a 1/3rd of the senior class into.

Jill said...

True story. That car rocked. And is the reason that oil prices are so high now.

The League said...

I think the real question is: Whatever happened to Judy Morrison?

Shannon said...

That is the real question. Ryan- in your down-time I think you need to track Judy down and update us.

I somehow also got the label 'arty kid' which I know is bogus. I think that 'disillusioned dorky kid' should have been a possible label. I thought I was cool and having a great time, but looking back it's pretty appalling.
