Re: Your GPA in High School

I think I've had this discussion before. The one about how I hated every level of school. I used to take naps on the floor under my desk... that's how little I cared about high school. At anyrate, it was about a C average. Lots of F's and D's and lots of A's. As it happens, I got better grades in su...
