  1. 1. Page 1 of 4The Stupid Story of aSupposedly Smart BoyThe more-or-less autobiography of and by Jonathan PrestonPage 1 of 4
  2. 2. Page 2 of 4 Thursday, December 9, 2010My name is Jonathan Preston, as the title says. I am 15 years old at the moment, but Iwon’t be on February 17, 2011. I have ADHD, OCD, Dysgraphia, Dyslexia, Asperger’ssyndrome, and a mild mood disorder. The reason I am writing this is not to bore people,but to vent a little, and maybe even get published. I have been published before, but thatwas a poem. I want to write a book. I am not sure how many companies would want topublish a 15 year old boy’s book of him venting about his life, but it is worth a shot. I amgoing to write every time I need to vent, so there HOPEFULLY will not need to write,*ehem*, type, everyday. If I can, I will also type about topics that I find problematic,interesting, or both. Friday, December 10, 2010 8:10 am Today is just another regular, boring day at school. What I am here to tell youabout (or, in this case, type to you about) IQs. I was told mine yesterday, after about 30minutes of begging and reasoning (mainly begging, though). My mom told me the IQ ofgenius, which is 120 points. Then she told me MY IQ. Are you ready? My IQ is 142points. I thought she was being funny until she showed me the evaluation sheets. Sureenough, my IQ is 142 points (this test was done in kindergarten, but I do not think IQschange by much as people get older). Most of my life, I have barely passed in school,getting closer and closer to failing each semester. The thing is, I failed two classes lastquarter, and I might fail two others if I don’t, as my dad says, “Get my butt in gear”. Monday, December 13, 2010 5:05 pm Today, I went to see the counselor about my grades. I already have three weeks ofsummer school for two classes, and I might have another three weeks for either one ortwo classes. The summer camp that I go to starts during the second set of three weeks, soI hope I don’t get summer school then, but it doesn’t look good. I have a 54 F in Religion2, a 58 F in Biology, a 68.5 D (68 is an F) in World History, and a 79 C in Geometry. Ihave thought about going to a public school, instead of the private school that I go tonow. I don’t know if I should or not, though. I have gone to public school before, but thatwas for middle school. I have never been to public high school. The vice-principle toldme I should take a tour of the school, and then tell her what I thought after that. It is nowafter school, and I am taking a quick break from my homework. If I know anything abouthomework, or work in general, it is that you need to take a break now and then. Tuesday, December 14, 2010 12:02 pm Have you ever noticed that people tend to gravitate towards people of the samegender, race, religion, etc as them? Also, have you noticed that there are a lot, and I domean A LOT, of Jewish jokes and Black jokes, and jokes about people with mental andphysical disabilities? Have you ever heard a joke about a white, Catholic, mentally andphysically stable man? Because I have never heard one, and I am kind of mad about it. Iam Jewish and mentally disabled, but I do not have a big nose, obsess over money, or dothat thing where you hit your chest with your hand. If we have freedom of religion, thenwhy do people make jokes about Jews? There are also jokes about Muslims, Hindus, andjust about every other religion but Catholicism. Thursday, December 16, 2010 10:32 am Yesterday was bad. I tried to run away, but then my dad called me and told me toget home NOW!! I half expected a cop in front of the house, ready to take me to jail. MyPage 2 of 4
  3. 3. Page 3 of 4mom is a really big worry wart, and that scared the heck out of her. I did not have muchtime between getting home and bed, so I could not do this yesterday. Thursday, December 17, 2010 10:17 am The topic for today is life in a vegetable-like state. My theory is that if you go intoa vegetable-like state, you have all of your memories and senses, but they areundetectable. People in the vegetable state have, for lack of a better term, a puzzle thatthey need to put back together. For those that have read the “Yu-Gi-Oh!” comics, whenKaiba lost to Yugi in Kaibaland, Yugi uses mind crush, and Kaiba is forced to reassemblehis mind, but without the evil parts. My theory is similar, but the mind does not disposeof any memories, actions, feelings, or emotions. Friday, December 17, 2010 9:01 am I have noticed that a lot of kids in school have been getting back problems very,very early in life. I wonder why. Oh yes, it is because of those darn school bags thatweigh 35 pounds each, on average. Some peoples’ bags, including my own, weigharound 45 pounds. Mine weighs that much due to the computer (3 pounds) and the extraschool books (about 6.5 pounds). Boy, am I glad I have a rolling school bag!! Another thing that bothers me is how teachers seem to either not care at all, orcare too much. In other words, some teachers just sit there, doing nothing, while otherscare so much about you passing, that they get all emotional when you miss onehomework. There needs to be middle-grounded teachers, teachers that care about youpassing, but don’t freak out if you mess up, like everyone does now and then. If we hadthose kinds of teachers, then maybe school would not be so annoying to go to five days aweek. Saturday, December 18, 2010 9:47 am If it was up to me, I would still be asleep right now. My sister had to go toConformation class at the synagogue. Yes, I am a Jew, and proud to be one, too. I amtaking a break from the homework I am doing. Ironically, I am doing religion homeworkfor a Catholic school in a Jewish synagogue. It is now 4:31 pm, and my parents are getting on my nerves. My dad is the mainproblem, but that is normal. He always tries to help. At least, I think that is what he isdoing. He always tells me that if I need help, to tell him. He then goes into his office andplays on his computer. If I need help, then he comes in, helps until we finish one subject,then goes back into his office. If I get off topic, then he gets angry and either storms outor gets really mean. Sometimes, he gets really mean and storms out. If I am too defiant,then he takes stuff away in a very annoying manner. He gets up, goes to where the thinghe is taking away is, takes it, and hides it. Since he is a computer geek (and a big one atthat), he sometimes goes on his computer, removes my internet privileges, and thencomes back in to “help”. When my sister does the same general things, though, he eitherignores it (don’t deny it, dad) or he tells her to stop, get back to work, or whatever fitsthat is way too nice. She is always getting things that I would not even get if I was aperfect angel. It is probably because she is daddy’s little girl. She gets to go to thesnowball stand (or snow cone stand, in just about everywhere but New Orleans), getsspecial privileges, and a lot of other things that just, as I have previously said, gets on mynerves.

  4. 4. Page 4 of 4 I am studying for my religion exam right now. At least, I am supposed to be.Thank goodness the semester is almost over. I REALLY need the break. My dad ishelping me to do the work, but he JUST woke up, so he is kind of useless right now. Heworks at a casino, at night at that. He works from between 6-9 pm to 2-5 am. He sleepsuntil around 2:30 pm each day. He has Monday and Tuesday off, but that is it. Monday, December 20, 2010 9:16 am It is officially crunch time. Tomorrow is the first day of exams, and, teachers andstudents alike are beyond stressed out. I am prepared for three of the four exams, but I amnot going to worry about the forth. I have a 50.3 in the class, so I cannot numericallypass. What really gets me mad is that I failed that class last semester as well. Biology, Ihate you, and I hate you with a passion. My religion grade has gone to a 65.8. I am stillfailing, but not even close to as much as I was about a week ago. I am now in my Biology class. That is one of the two classes that it is statisticallyimpossible for me to pass. Today I found out that it is not possible for me to pass WorldHistory; I have a 51.8 in the class. I would need more than a perfect grade on the exam inorder to pass. I would need somewhere around a 125 to pass with a 70 D. Well, at least Idon’t need to worry about what I am doing over the summer. I told the World Historyteacher that I would see him here over the summer. I think he actually smiled. This isreally weird, seeing as he never shows any emotions. It does not matter if you tell him ajoke or that his body is going to turn inside-out, he will not show any change in emotions.My teacher for Biology is really cool. She does not have a problem messing with one ofthe annoying students. She has told the student that she is going to bring in a roll of ducttape and wrap the whole thing around her mouth. She has told us to deal with her afterclass (the student had done something to make the whole class mad). She said that a nice,dark ally usually works the best. I figured we could all just turn the other way and giveher a baseball bat.Page 4 of 4
