    • “ In math we are learning how to use protractors and in social studies we are talking about ancient Rome, it’s boring.”
    • “ A lot of people don’t think you have to study to get a good grade, but that’s what matters, so I study.”
    • “ When you are partnered up with someone, one person ends up doing all the work…which happens all the time.”
    • My little sister says she studies but I do not personally think she does a lot of studying outside of the classroom.
    • In my opinion she just wants people to think she studies so she seems smart because I believe she is self conscious.
