    So along with my girlfriend being on the east coast and me on the west, I just recently found out im about 120 minutes over my max minutes, and have 13 days until I get more. That pissed my dad off, plus he will soon know I got a D+ in my history class for the first semester. I have no idea how he will react to that. Probablly horrid. Ive never got anything lower than a C-. And I suck at photoshop so I cant make an extra cash to pay for shit like my cell phone bill. Im 15, 10th grade. :(
     
  2. Sounds like you're really going through a lot of similar things that we've all dealt with. Although it's never the same, it's still frustrating at the time it's happening. I think you'll find that while things aren't all that pleasant right now, they'll improve, and hopefully you'll find yourself smiling and relieved soon enough. It's frustrating, but we all understand that.

    Well on the bright side, a D+ isn't all that different from a C-
    Tell me, are you normally an A/B student ? A D+ appearing would definitely be a shock.

    But if you're getting a lot of C's and C- well, no disrespect intended, but that's just about the same thing.
    My advice to you is that if this is a slow slide from C's to D's to F's, then you need to do something to catch that.

    That D+ should signal you to do something, rather than just shrug it off and hope your dad doesn't flip out. That actually ought to be the least of your worries, even though I can understand why it might seem like the biggest worry right now.

    I think you should go an drop in afterschool for a chat with a school counsellor you like and might be sympathetic to you. Tell him that you think the D+ sucks (you DO think that, right?) and maybe he/she could talk a bit on ways to change it up.

    Good luck.

    Yes the D+ was pretty shocking to me and I havent ever got one before. I usually get Cs and Bs, but with my bitching dad even that isnt good enough.

    What METALLIC BLUE said. Except that I will be more direct and say that you need to man up, take responsibility, and not worry about trivial minutae.

    "Dad? I got a D. It won't happen again." Then, don't get a D again.

    Email your gf and say, "I don't have any more minutes to use, so I will be emailing you alot."

    Then, you can stop worrying and start thinking about something more important. ;)

    seems like someone's priorities are a bit muffled... maybe you shouldn't be spending so much time on the phone with your girlfriend, and instead you should be studying. :)

    I asked verizon, and they said it would still use my cell minutes because who the hell knows.

    my dad is a huge hardass and would make a huge deal out of it, involving shit about car insurance, getting into DeVry, and other shit he feels like pulling out of his ass.

    :p :p :mamoru: i love her so much its difficult



    i guess ill just have to tuck my dick in and tell him. ill just say sumthin like it wont happen again and ill work real hard to raise it. :hs:
