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.
Apparently, at some point during my freshman year of high school, I felt it necessary to include this drawing in my class notes. The text below reads:
Why all the war? All the kings would gain control of is new armies and people and get more burdens than pleasures. I think probably most of the kings / pharaohs / emperors were bored or something.
On the back side of this page are miscellaneous notes about Egyptian mythology, so this must have been from my world history class.
