Well, maybe I am feeling the effects of some sort of paranoia, but I feel the need to make a serious follow up on the last post.
I hope people understand that truthfully I have nothing wrong with smart or intelligent people, or even with very good students. There are many of my classamates who I can say with absolute confidence are naturally brilliant people who I feel lucky just to be in class with every day. These people are smart, but they are also still cool, in their own way. When I have made posts about "the Striver," or "How to Annoy Smart People," this is mostly just me poking fun at the people who take school too seriously (probably take life too seriously) and can honestly make things pretty miserable for the people who are unlucky enough to believe they should follow suit.
So-- maybe I am just being paranoid that people from school other than a select few I know about read this page, but in the event that you are reading it and I don't know about it-- well first of all you are reading this page so obviously you are cool. Also, I do not want people to believe I am against being smart. I am at best only average, but I try each day to get a little smarter, with varying success, and I definitely admire a lot of smart people around me.
Anyways-- hope no one takes any of my rambling personally, it's just supposed to be funny.
