Hi-Q 2

OK, I started posting on a forum website. Remember that. Remember, as well, the thing stating that I am of "below average" intelligence. Now when the two are put together I am starting to feel that way. This site has a lot of younger people on it and some of them are not even out of high-school yet, and the things that they say are amazing and I have never felt so stupid in my life. I also never realized how far detached from the youth of the nation I am until recently, but that's another issue. I try to keep up with them on some debates and I'm just amazed at the things they know. When I was in high school I knew Bill Clinton was president and that was about it. I really didn't know much about his administration and the things that where going on, nor did I much care. These kids, however, are telling me things that I should already know. Here I thought I had knowledge about politics, but now I realize that I'm just a moron and I think that I'm smarter than I actually am. So what does this mean for the future of America since I'd like to be a teacher someday? My SAT score was incredibly crappy, but I also took it the day after prom and I knew I was enlisting so I didn't pay as much attention as I should have. My latest college GPA is 3.6, but I didn't really feel challenged and I felt like I B.S.'ed my way through.
So give me some feed back O'Reader. Am I a moron? If I'm not, then what is my problem? If I am, then where do I go to get informed on the issues of the day?

I'm movin out!

I moved this week and that was quite the experience. First off I failed to pack everything effectively, so when my parents showed up we where running around packing. Speaking of which, you never know how much stuff you have until your trying to put it all in boxes and a U-Haul type truck. Dad and I got a little frustrated with each other at times, but it worked out fine and I'm getting my new place put together. All I have left is to get my pictures hung on the walls.
My old landlord was a pain in the ass. I didn't help my cause any though. When I first moved in I signed a 12 month lease. Well that year cam and went and we didn't sign another lease, which I guess a lot of owners do, you just pay your rent and if you want to move you give 30 days notice and your on your way. Well, being younger and stupid, I shredded the old lease, I'm sure I'll get a legal bashing from CJ, but, it is what it is. So my real question is, even if I didn't get rid of it, is that old lease still valid? He kept trying to BS me about certain things that because I didn't have the lease I couldn't really argue or look and see if they where real or what. It wasn't anything big, it was just cleaning the carpet, but that was time consuming and time I didn't have. Long story short, I just bit the bullet and cleaned the carpets before I left, I took the opportunity and cleaned my new carpets too.
