Bryant, congratulations! You passed my class. You got a 78 percent! (Which is actually pretty incredible for having NOT been in my class to see which words I chose as the gods' attributes.)

Gold star for you!

hmmm...do you give extra credit for drawing a picture you turn in with your test? I think that's how I passed most of my English classes.

As of right now I might get an 80ish. But I'm kind of sleepy, and honestly I just skimmed over it. But I think I might be able to get a high B. Though sometimes I still try to say my head hurts so bad that I think Athena is about to burst out of it. (you know because she came out of Zeus's head when he had a headache) it doesn't go over well becaue I have to explain it, and I suppose it doen'st really make sense since I'm not a god. But whatever I think it's funny. because I am funny.
