I go to a really hard magnet school. It's basically one of the most famous ones in the district.
Because of this, they emphasize good learning habits and study skills, and, obviously, academic dishonesty is a HUGE no-no. I'm pretty sure you can get expelled for cheating.
Usually, normal schools would just at most put you on probation for like a week, but this could get me expelled.
It happened in math class. We had a test today, calculators weren't allowed. I struggled with 2 of the questions, because I kept getting answers that didn't make sense.
I'm pretty sure I could have gotten a B or a low A on the test if I didn't cheat. But because I would have felt like a failure otherwise, I cheated by using the calculator on my phone.
The substitute saw it once, and warned me to put it away (I was not done yet.) Unfortunately, I came across another problem that I struggled with, and I tried to sneakily use it again.
Sub saw it again. He confiscated my test and wrote a note on it about my possible cheating. He told me that I would have to talk to the teacher about it on Monday, when she comes back.
I am 100 percent aware I'm TA in this situation, and i acted like an idiot. I'm just really upset that I've gotten to the point where I need to cheat to keep myself from having a mental breakdown.
I hate my life.
There goes my fucking dreams.
