Back then, if I got a "D", it was reason to be happy. Everything else was "A", "B", and sometimes a "C" except for my one year of catholic school where a "C" was 80%.
I graduated from highschool with a 1.95... and that was only because i had a few A's and B's my senior year.
I hated math. Got D's in it, a B one time in geometry, but failed the next semester. Then went to summer school. Went back the next semester and took Trig. Failed it and was done with math. Why? Cause I could have cared less about it.
Now? I find it interesting, but could still care less about the specifics.
Funny thing... the higher in my education I went, the better GPA I got. That is probably because each step became more specific, and held my attention that much more.
