well not really but kind of

I'm on a philanthropy board with ~25 other students where we get $15,000 and decide where to donate it too over the course of months. It's pretty cool actually, my school's principal nominated me and I joined it on a whim, so glad I joined it.

Fun fact: we had randomized assigned seats and they sat me next to someone from my high school my twin brother goes to and someone from the school that my baby brother used to go to. I was sandwiched by my siblings!

Kinda undersold yourself then, considering that "thousands" just makes it sound like a smaller amount. Granted, it's still not a huge thing unless you can donate to yourself.

I've been in charge of thousands of dollars for several years now, so... it makes me feel like nothing? Like you make too many topics about things that are interesting to you as a high schooler that are mundane to everyone else on the board?

It makes me feel like you're incredibly insecure if you feel the need to try and brag about that sort of thing on an Internet video game message board.

Interesting. Most places don't just let you choose what school you go to. You have to go to a school based on your address and what district you're in.

Because this guy just makes cringe topic after cringe topic. I mean I won't pretend I never had cringey moments in high school, but usually at some point you learn better. I think this is just the dude's personality, its not only his age in play.

He might live on the border. Some people in my area were allowed to choose which school to go to if they lived on the border. Also, one of them might go to a private school.

That's what happened to me at first.

So here's the short story long: my brother and I went to the same high school 9th grade year. Our parents didn't like the school so they forced us to go to this charter school one city over. my brother didn't like it so he actively got in trouble so they would force him out. I decided to stay and love it.
