I may go to a community at first as I my family has next to no spending money, only my Mon works, then I will make sure I transfer to a good college. Also it is a whole lot harder for me to just get into a nice college at first because I have good grades, but not the best.

One of my friends is really nice and he truest to get me to do the best of things. He helps me out a whole lot as well, like he might be able to get me a part time job at Subway, he s also inns let me do his yard work for some extra cash. But yeah he has been mentoring me to go to college and get the right degree. Gonna get a degree that isn't specialised in one type of business, bit I may go back and get another degree for a specialized area.

You have to do what is right by you. You could still try and fill out a few University apps though. You may be surprised. You could also try for private Uni's. They are usually lest strick on grades from my experience. You have to be careful and check that they are accredited and credits are transferrable. You are in 10th grade too. You have time to improve your grades. and if your parents are at the poverty level you can get tons of scholarships and grants that you do not have to pay back. Try for the loans sparingly so you don't get to much debt. I told my school I needed help finding scholarships and loans and they found them all for me. I did it this way and my schooling is completly payed for with minimal loans. I still have almost $5,000 to add on to my next semester that hasn't bee used. I got that much help. You just have to work at it and you can do University. I seems harder to accomplish because most people do things the hard way. I just told them I wanted to go there but I wouldn't if they didn't help me get scholarships and grants rather than all loans. You also have like.... 3 to 6 months to get a job after you graduate to start making payments. I do believe you can get them based on your income too.

Oh, pet peeve: when people say they could care less.

If you could care less, it means you care, because you *could* care less.

If you mean that you do not care about something, you *couldn't* care less about it, because you are already at zero level of caring. Grr.

I could care less about people saying it wrong. I couldn't care less about people who call me a language Nazi because of it.

Life.

My pet peeve is very unique to Multiracial Americans who pass as a completely unrelated Race. So, some background info is needed to get everyone on the same page. XD

Racially, my background is Native American, Irish, Jamacian, and African. For some reason, that mix of 4 races makes me look Puerto Riccan. I have no idea why, but I pass for Puerto Riccan to the point that people assume I can't speak English. You would think I could introduce myself as Native-Irish-Jamacian-African American and be done with the whole thing. But No.

In American, hyphenated races have been seen as "Less American" ever since 9/11/2001. So, if I call myself Native-Irish-Jamacian-African American, some Americans will assume I want the terrorist to win and demand that I "go back home". Since I'm of Native American decent, I should be kicking them out. -_-

You would also think that calling myself Black would solve the problem. But you are wrong once again. If I call myself Black, I will be looked at by the overly PC crowd as being ignorant since any self respecting slave decent will call him/herself African American. I can understand the push to get rid of the N-word since that is demeaning. But "Black" is one of the few racial labels that acknowledges the person is a mixed member of the race. I'm not going to ignore 3 of my 4 races to make PC people happy. :I

Now, with Native-Irish-Jamaican-African American and Black off the table, you would think I can say I'm Multiracial and be done with it. For a third time, you would be wrong. Because when you say, "Multiracial" they say "How?" Needless to say, "A lot of open minded sex," does not work as a suitable answer for this question. Which leads me right back to the hyphenated/Black cycle of political debated that I tried to avoid by using the term multiracial. T_T

Therefore, my pet peeve is anyone who tries to use my race as an icebreaker and then proceeds to argue with me because he/she does not like my answer. By all means try to strike up a conversation with me by talking about my background. But don't start an arguement with me because I didn't reinforce your stereotype of a race I just happen to resemble. >:(

Hm... mine are:

People not spaying/nuetering their cats/dogs/other pets when they can clearly afford it.

People using one letter to substitute for "okay", or any other word. With todays phones, there is no excuse to type stupidly.

Kids today being spoiled. I'm only 16, but what happened to the days of going outside and playing with grasshoppers or making forts and playing hide-and-seek? Now it's all TV, iPads, phones, gaming systems, online games. Get some imagination into your kids, people! Don't be a lazy parent!

People that take advantage of me/others.

When I tell people that I do online schooling, they're like "Oh....so your mom teaches you?" NO. I LEARN FROM TEACHERS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE BUT JUST ONLINE. With less of a social life, but people in my town my age are all into getting drunk and high. Not for me, thanks.

I've got many others, I just can't think of them XD Also, some of mine would offend people.

3 Bronze Cories
1 Hamster
Soon, 1 cornsnake!
