What kind of student were you in school? Were you a slacker, a jock, a nerd, or just an all around 'general' kind of student? What did your teachers say about you? Myself, I was kind of a "smart slacker" up until ninth. My 8th grade science teacher said of me to my mom: "I mean, don't get me wrong, he's not dumb. He knows stuff that frankly I didn't even know (we had gotten into a discussion after class ended about the string theory) about, but he doesn't participate in class, and he doesn't do any of the homework assigned." I failed that class for the year, with a D. But, it wasn't required to pass, and I still keep in touch with the guy. What about you guys?
