31 Days Of Blogging Challenge: DAY 11


Its in the same time good and bad. I mean when it happened, it was a bad moment, but later it made me laugh every time I remembered it!

It happened when I was in 9th grade at high school. Geography was for me a hobby; I was really good in gymnasium having only 9 and 10 (A or B grades). But in high school and I a different teacher with a different way of teaching and being; the intimidate way. And with my talking problem I was a target at the beginning. My first grade was 3 after a written exam (that’s like -F!!).

But it was in another class when the moment occurred; some random questions were asked and randomly picked to answer them. You had to answer them quickly; and this was not my advantage. Before saying the answer, with the stuttering on my lips to put it this way, I was asked to sit down and not to answer.

But somehow managed to speak and say the answer; then the teacher said: Vlaicu Voda the brave one  and with the mind as a leek! Felt terrible at that moment.

Later on I became the teacher’s favorite, taking only tens and graduated the geography university:).
