For my English class...
« on: June 23, 2008, 08:12:33 pm »
This is the only thing I wrote for high school that I was proud of. We had to write parodies. There were some God-awful ones but I like this.

Now, this is a story all about how
My life was lived up until now
And I'd like to take a minute
Just listen to me
I'll tell you the life story of Mr. Jackie

In North Carolina, born and raised
Watching lotsa cartoons, how I spent most of my days
In retrospect I guess I was lazy
I suppose I should be out smelling those daisies
Then I had to get up
Had to go to school
Had to prove to the world that I do rule
I get one little "F" and my parents start to freak
They say "What do you want, to turn out weak?"

I kept going steady, just passing by
Getting those A's, like I needed to try
And that's the time when I finally realized
That life is more then what's before your eyes

Now we're into my high school years
How ignorant I was, so full of cheers
Nothing really changed, nothing at all
'Cept for all my friends seemed to get tall

Heard college might, well, will be real hard
Guess I'll wait till I see my report card
Back to the present
Everything's alright
Me and my homies are all tight

Summer now is almost done
All this work I am beginning to shun
Still always gotta be on the attack
But man I just can't wait to look back

Who wouldn't I kill to be Dr. Emmett
Then I could travel time after 1.46 miles per minute
No point of getting ahead
When itís so easy to slip behind
After all, it's just in the mind

So there it is
For all to see
That is the life of Mr. Jackie

OMG loves it!
For real though it was pimpin.

In my creative writing class in high school I wrote something I was proud of. We had to make a parody of a sitcom (kiiind of like what you were doing) except it had to be a storyboard. We made one for The Office, and I liked it a lot. Maybe I can post it on here sometime if I ever find it.

That sounds fantastic.

I hated high school English except for fun projects like those. The discussions were always bad because nobody wanted to have discussions except me and select others. I love English class discussions, when they happen, because they can get really heavy.

i want blood dammit

I always loved English class at my school! If I was in regular English, it would probably be that way because everyone in there is a retard. I took AP English though so there were always interesting discussions.

I took A.P. my Junior year but it was the same period as my Acting Ensemble last year and no way in Tippecanoe was I giving that up.
