There are a few gems scattered among my notes from November 2, 2000:
“Occasionally I read something that isn’t good… like, your papers.”
-My sophomore English teacher
As well as some fun notes I took, including emphasizing “ASSignment” (see image) and writing the following note to myself:
Write a dialog (Cody: Bite me! Jon: Die!)
(like a script) on “Justice”
I wonder how ancient Greek philosophers would feel about the notes I wrote alongside their timeless ideas?
Me: I SHOULD HAVE BEEN SOCRATES!!!
Teacher: No, you should’ve been listening!
It looks like I was keeping a running tally of mistakes by “N.B.” (I don’t know who that could be) during a class that covered some of Socrates’ philosophy, as evidenced by the quote:
“The mark of one who knows is to know what he does not know.”
But clearly, the teacher was unimpressed. Ah, sophomore high school English. Makes me feel so… philosophical.
