How to Get Good Grades as Told by a Straight-A Student (Me!)
First, be respectful. It leaves a good impression on the teachers!
Next, pay attention. This might be hard seeming that teenagers only have a 5 minute attention span.
Then, study. Although this might be one of the most boring things to do, it will be nice when you ace that test.
Lastly, ask questions. Even if you're embarrassed to, ask questions because what is more embarrassing, knowing the answer or being totally clueless?
That's all I got because that's just what I've heard gets you good grades. I really don't know what to do to get good grades since I don't do 3/4 of the steps that's written above. I guess good grades in high school isn't that hard to get. I mean high school is supposed to be hard though, and it's not. Even my AP chemistry is simple, I'm literally making a 97, how is that hard? Well, I hope this helps whoever needs it!
다시 Run, Run, Run
Fast forward to September 2015, BTS's "Prologue" is released unannounced and I am more confused with this one than I was with "I Need U (Original Ver.)". Here's the overly-simplified-leaving-out-most-parts summary of the video: It's Jin's memories and V commits suicide (they really like death for some reason). The happiest part of the video was the announcement of the release date for "The Most Beautiful Moment in Life pt. 2", but that was ruined by the actual end of the video. It's sad though that the happiest part of the video was the release date because we had to wait 2 months for the next video and album.
Finally, the November 29, 2015, 3 days after my birthday, the music video and album are released. The music video "Run (Official Ver.)" did not help clear any confusion, it just added more. I must admit this video wasn't as sad as "Prologue" or "I Need U (Original Ver.)", but I cried just as much as I did over the other videos. The album made me cry also because it is hands down amazing. Honestly, the song "Whalien 52" is probably the best metaphor for loneliness there is to date (Thank you to Rap Monster and Suga for that).
Now, all I have to do is wait for either the original version of "Run" or for the music video for "Butterfly", and then maybe I actually will find out what is going on!
*Bangtan Sonyeondan (aka Bangtan Boys aka BTS) is a Korean hip-hop/rap group consisting of 7 guys: Rap Monster (rap and leader), Suga (rap), J-Hope (rap and dance), Jin (vocal), V (vocal), Jimin (vocal), and Jungkook (vocal and rap). (In my opinion, they are one of the best dance groups there is!) Bangtan Sonyeondan translates to "Bulletproof Boyscouts" by the way.
