I wasn´t considered a particularly bright student in High School. Although an Honour Roll student during Elementary School, when I got to High School it was a different story.
I went to an all girls catholic private school (yes, complete with the clichéd uniform and all). My childhood songs were protest songs, I later realized, and the nuns there made such a good job at raisin independent women that when I was on the sixth grade I decided I wanted to change to a different religion mixed genre high school.
Soon, it was clear that the new school did not share the nuns view of life nor values (this actually had nothing to do with religion). I was sent to the principal´s office more often than not for just speaking my mind (as I was taught to do in grade school). But in this particular school, speaking your mind, even when respectfully, was the equivalent of in-house terrorism. Needless to say I did not excel in that environment at all; my upper class drawl – even though it was also a private school, considered a misdemeanor in that particular environment – and direct approach always getting in the way and people tend to judge you on that basis.
Things changed when I got to College though! My opinions were valued and discussions encouraged! Wooooottt???? I soon got used to getting all A+ in my exams. Particularly in exams were you had to elaborate on your answers I used to do magnificently well. That is until one specific day. I finally got an A. Just an A, no A+. The usual dry A student however did manage to get an A+.
I was not jealous but I was, indeed, surprised. I asked (my most beloved Professor to this day) the reason why. He simply said … ¨Because what took you 4 pages to explain took her only half a page and she conveyed the same.¨ This Professor is a fair and just man. He still says I was his best student. But he acted fairly and taught me a lesson.
Remembering that lesson, I usually stay shut and although a published author in RL, I prefer to keep quiet rather than hurt – unless you hurt me or provoque me first or try to, in which case it will all depend on my mood like most people´s – to not say anything unless I have something nice to say and to remain true to myself in every sense rather than follow someone´s lead unless it´s my own. Honouring this Professor, for a while at least, I will be as spare as possible in my writings, because, like I said, that was a lesson learnt!
¨The only problem in your SL should be lag.
For anything else there is always RL¨
