Subject: Farewell for now. ;)

Forum: Farewell for now. ;)
Hey, CNet. Happy Friday! School got cancelled for today because of the snow. I was pumped when I found out! I went snowboarding with my sister a little while ago, and it was fun. Now we're going to make some hot cocoa.

I don't think I payed close attention to the rules for this site. I didn't know that I had to be a college student (or at least a senior in high school) to reap the benefits of the scholarship prizes. I'm a junior currently, and I haven't decided where I want to go to college yet, maybe Boston University. I don't know, it depends.

I think I'm going to take a break from posting for a while. I'll still vote, but I would like to wait until I could really use the scholarship money.

Thank you for all your support, kind words, and thoughtful responses. :)

Farewell, CNet, for now. :)


Subject: What makes you "lose brain cells?"

Forum: What makes you "lose brain cells?"
Hey, CNet! What makes you "lose brain cells?"

One may feel they have "lost brain cells" when they have had to use lots of brain power to work on something intellectually challenging. In other cases, people may feel like they've "lost brain cells" when they are exposed to conversations, songs, etc that are remarkably ignorant and/or mind-numbing.

When I study really hard for a test with a lot of challenging content, I feel like I can't do anything else with my brain after the test because I've worked it so hard, like this week. I had a chemistry quiz today. Since I'm in honors, the quizzes and assignments are supposed to be advanced, so there was a lot of content to retain in order to do well on it. I feel like I did well on it. I have a few homework assignments to do now that I'll get to later. For now, I feel like I need to relax my brain by playing some piano, reading some things online, etc.

What about you? What things numb/exhaust your mind? In what ways?

Have a great evening! :)

Forum: Best thing that's happened to you this year?
Good evening, Jon,

Congratulations on all your accomplishments! Your parents must be so proud! I'm sure your younger self would be, too. It's always good for one to reflect on their year and assess their strengths and areas in which they could use improvement. You seem to have had a year in which all your wonderful strengths manifested themselves into huge accomplishments!

The best thing that has happened to me this year had been earning Bengal Pride for the third year in a row. The Bengal Pride award is bestowed upon students who had superior grades in all their classes. It is an award for excellence in academics and citizenship. It's the highest honor you could receive at my school. This was so fantastic for me because I'd been doubting myself as a student. I thought I had to be perfect in order to be satisfied with my academic ability. I have a 4.1 GPA, so I definitely have faith in myself.

The second best thing that happened this year had been getting my first job! I'm sixteen, and back in October, I took initiative to ask my dad if I could go for na interview to get hired at a banquet hall just a few blocks down from where I live. I walked in, talked to someone in charge, filled out an application, met my boss, and when I listed off the names of the people I knew who work there, I got hired right away! I thought that was amazing! I was eager to start working. On the first day, I picked things up quickly and it looked like I knew everything I was doing despite being new. As I've said before, getting a job was a big deal for me. It made me feel grown up, and I love feeling grown up and self sufficient. I received my first paycheck about a week ago. It was exciting, I earned quite a lot.

This year did, indeed, go by fast. I have no doubt 2019 will be a productive, fulfilling, fun year for you.

Thanks for the forum!
Have a good one. :)

Forum: What excites you right now?
Good afternoon, Jon,

That's so nice! I hope you have a good time with your brother! I'm probably going to be missing my siblings so much when I go to college.

Currently, I'm excited by the likelihood I will be able to film a movie with my friends next week, during Thanksgiving break. We're reading "The Crucible" in English class, and as we were reading it as a class today, I was dreaming up all these original characters and themes that could go into a modern spin-off of the story. Once the production is done, I could upload it to my YouTube channel and possibly show it in class. I'm sure it'd be entertaining.

Here's what I have as far as ideas go:

Dante Schwartz, a math genius who escaped the mafia, moves to Bloomfield where the word soon gets out about his reputation as a former mafia boss. Dante is distraught because he moved to get away from his past life, not watch it unfurl again before his eyes.

People in the town start to accuse his sons, Bennett and Antonio, of certain crimes that have been taking place in their area.

That's all I have so far, but it's looking pretty interesting!

Thanks for the forum!
Have a wonderful day. :)

Subject: Re: Do you make new year resolutions

Forum: Do you make new year resolutions
Good morning!

I sincerely hope your son gets better. Asthma is no joke. It can be a scary thing, particularly for younger children. I pray the change in weather doesn't impact him.

You have admirable aspirations for the new year. You're doing great on Collegenet! I have no doubt you'll be able to pay off school easily.

Personally, I don't believe in New Year's Resolutions. I simply set different goals for each day and hope to fulfill those goals to perpetually set myself on a better path. Luckily, I am always surrounded by positive people. I had cut all the negative people out of my life and I've been doing phenomenally ever since.

Though I don't make New Year's Resolutions, my immediate resolutions are to:

1. Defend myself when others put me down. Out of all the kids in my school, I'm the one who gets picked on often. I'd like to start standing up for myself.

2. Start believing in my abilities. My teachers have told me that I'm smart but I don't try hard enough. If I did, they told me I'd excel. The reason why I don't try hard enough is because I have trouble believing in my abilities. I doubt myself. If I stop doubting myself, I think I'd be better off.

3. Reconcile with an old friend. I signed up for indoor track this year, and a friend of mine from elementary school who I haven't talked to in years signed up as well. I intend to establish a close friendship with her again. Her sister went away to college last year and that reminded me of how much I miss her.

I hope 2019 is your year!
Thanks for the forum!
Have a blessed day. :)

Subject: Re: What's on your to do list?

Forum: What's on your to do list?
Good morning!

You're a very busy person! I know what it's like to try to do some reflective thinking and not being able to because the endless list of things I have to do is uppermost in my mind.
Making a to-do list is certainly an effective way to organize one's obligations. Checking things off a to-do list after they're done is an undeniably satisfying feeling.

Here are the things on my to-do list:
Finish posting to CNet. (I've already finished my assignment in class so I have time to do other things.)
Resume practicing light equations for chemistry.

At lunch:
Hand in physical forms to the athletic office.
Finish the last problem on my chemistry worksheet.
Practice electron configurations.

After school:
Go to robotics meeting briefly.
Get help with certain chemistry concepts after class.
Review extensively the things I don't know that well.
(I humbly acknowledge that although I'm good at science, chemistry, etc, I need a little help sometimes because I have trouble focusing in class.)

At home:
Eat dinner.
Get English homework done.
Go to therapy.
Study for chemistry.

We have a chemistry quiz this Thursday on light theory, light equations, atomic orbitals, and electron configurations. It is imperative that I review as much as I possibly can because it is a lot.

Other than that, today's to-do list isn't so overwhelming.

Thanks for the forum!
Have a wonderful day. :)

Subject: Have you had your IQ tested?

Forum: Have you had your IQ tested?
Hey, CNet! Have you ever had your IQ tested by a psychologist? You don't have to share your score, but what was the test like? I'd never taken one before, so I'm curious as to what the test is comprised of.

Do you believe IQ is fixed or fluid?

Personally, I think one's IQ is fixed, meaning it pretty much stays the same for the rest of one's life. However, one's intelligence can change drastically depending on how hard they work their brain throughout their lives. Furthermore, there is a plethora of intelligences that aren't really reflected in IQ score.

Subject: Re: Something you used to do but no longer do

Forum: Something you used to do but no longer do
Good morning!

Great forum!

I used to be really into things of academic nature, like math, science, and history. That being so, I'd spend my days and even some of my evenings reading books and watching informative videos related to all three subjects. My teachers would be astounded at how much I knew.

Unfortunately, my knowledge of science and math and the principles thereof I applied to my projects for those two classes was not enough. The S.T.E.M. award went to someone who lied and cheated their way through the year. I was devastated, to the extent I never touched another book about science or math again. I stopped watching videos about history and all things academic. I felt it wasn't worth it.

If I kept up these rigorous studies, I probably would've been thriving in high school so far. It's a real shame I had relinquished the qualities and interests I used to have because of some fraudulent award system.

Luckily, I have acquired many more interests now, and I'm enjoying the greatly.

Thanks for the forum!
Have a wonderful day. :)

Forum: I forgot to post a forum! Haha.
Hey, CNet! Have you ever forgotten to post a forum of your own?

Yesterday, I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing and replied to five forums. I couldn't help it, they were all so good, as they always are!

Have you ever posted the maximum of five times without using one to post your own forum? How did you feel? Did it affect your votes?

I laughed when I found out I'd forgotten to post a forum. Fortunately, it didn't affect how many votes I received at all. I was still one of the top candidates.

Have a wonderful day, everyone!
