    time never became an issue for me until i started high school. to answer your question, most people have time to do all these ECs and activities because they're efficient. they dont slack off. freshman yhear i remember i used to do my hw for 1 hour and then have a 1 hour break. rele bad idea. didnt have time for anything. work rele consumes alotta time.

    ya funny story...i have like 2000 hours of community service with EMS and shadowing doctors and everything...so as you can imagine im pretty mcuh always on an ambulance or in the hospital. But I went out with this girl last year who broke up with me because she said she was too busy.

    You have no idea how mad that made me ahahaha. Psh all she did was play field hockey. She didnt even take as many classes as I did.

    Do I give off the impression that I'm a slacker?
    Because I'm actually not.

    I'm incredibly insecure. Why else would I hang out at this board?
