My parents were so impressed they are thinking about taking out one of those congratulation things in the Telegraph. And they keep kissing me and squeezing me. They are more excited than me. 87.45. It's good because my school thought I was crap.
That is really really sweet!panicstation said:My parents were so impressed they are thinking about taking out one of those congratulation things in the Telegraph. And they keep kissing me and squeezing me. They are more excited than me. 87.45. It's good because my school thought I was crap.
I think I know how you felt, if not fully still got a good gist of it.bubz :D said:That is really really sweet!
OK i did my HSC in 2003 but ehh... my 5c:
My stepmother didn't give a crap and dad wasn't home at the time, but he called me a few hours later and he was pretty happy! We both went out and celebrated (separately), but when I got home things weren't so good... he was reading the Chinese newspaper, with all these Asians getting 99.95 and 100 etc... he didn't yell but he sounded really disappointed: "these kids have only been here for two or three years and they could get this high, how come you couldn't?"
He obviously has no idea how the system works, and I screamed my head off at him before crying for the rest of the night Anyway, afterwards I think he felt really bad but I didn't talk to him for at least a week... when offers came out, he was happy for me when I shrieked with joy and ran around the room, but my bitch of a stepmother told me to sit down and shut up because my sister was asleep.

woke up at 9am, uai was 99.55, told my parents, sister and brother, they were ecstatic, i swear, they all havent stopped smiling all day, im the youngest so yeh i now finally feel sorta special.
11am- went to meet up with friends at school, that went ok, although i didnt want to say too much, just talked for like 2 hrs.
then i got my green p's, and now im at my boyfriend's house, he beat me by 0.10, he is 18 today, so special for us both, and right now were just enjoying a few vb's together.
i never want today to end!!!
aw don't worry, you still did really well. like exceptionally so.pheelics1 said:I got up really early cause I was so excited about it. Turns out I got 96.2...quite sad. SAM said 98 so I feel kind of ripped off. My brother and sister both got 99+ so I really feel like the black sheep..
Family friends keep calling but my mother wouldn't dare let me tell them... I feel like I've let so many people down.
Yes, 96.2 is a wonderful UAI. It's crazy that some parents/families wouldn't be proud of such results. It just totally blows my mind.^CoSMic DoRiS^^ said:aw don't worry, you still did really well. like exceptionally so.
to anyone whose parents are giving them shit when you have fantastic results, dont let it get to you you've all done great.
you're signature suggests otherwise...mitsui said:parents very happy and pleased, mainly coz i beat most of our selective-school-family-frds (me the only one in a non-selective school)
they are proud for knowing i did it without tutoring, with a job for 5yrs and shit eng background (unlike all the family frds). HAHA
I believe his signature refers to his tutoring of others. Maybe time to chill out, champ?pheelics1 said:you're signature suggests otherwise...
maybe time to get over yourself?
