Biggest way to spit in an AP teachers face is to do nothing in the class all year but still pass the AP exam.
Experience is my APUSH class last year where I did nothing but passed the exam with a 5
Now I believe my teacher hates me (she’s my AP Macroecon teacher this year) and I do nothing in that class also so let’s see how this works out

He just kinda -breathes- chill

I’m really tired and not into school today

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Updates ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
⠀⠀Well I finally completed that large group of posts. Never thought that the day would come, but I'm kind of glad that it happened. It feels like a weight is lifted, and I can begin to explore more and post a larger variety of content/ topics on this account.⠀⠀
⠀⠀But posts will most likely be slow, on top of my own laziness school can get in the way - especially with swim team starting soon, that eats up most of my time during the winter sport season.⠀⠀
⠀⠀With this post I am asking for suggestions of topics to post on my account. Comment below, my thiscrush, or dm. I'm looking for really anything, broad, specific, small, large. Maybe ideas for posts of country relations, "journal" type things from Alfred's POV, possible even ideas for rp starters (I prefer historical rps, but some aus I'll do depending on what it is.⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Washington, D.C. 1800-Present ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
⠀⠀When the first White House was completed in 1800 the center of government was moved there, and has stayed there ever since. Although, the city has undergone many changes since it was first completed. Many presidents have made renovations to the White House, making it a forever changing building, while still retaining the basic look it was designed to have.⠀⠀
⠀⠀The first change happened only 14 years after it was built, being burnt down in 1814 during the War of 1812, taking a year to rebuild. 93 crates of supplies were sent from France to refurbish the White House. This was made possible by the new president James Monroe and his ties to France through his work as an ambassador.⠀⠀
⠀⠀50 years after being rebuilt, the White House was deemed uninhabitable. Contrary to its perfect condition outside much of the inside was old and falling apart, calling for the mansion to be rebuilt. The plans were made by Abraham Lincoln and his wife, although after the assassination they were completely dropped. A check for $25,000 was given to upgrade the house, brining it up to the modern building standards. But after this it was near demolition, only saved by congresses rejection to paying for the renovations that both President Chester Arthur and the Army Corps of Engineers wanted. Instead, even more renovations were made.⠀⠀
⠀⠀In 1945 when President Harry S. Truman took office, the White House was in its worst condition yet. It was falling apart, and was so bad that the White House usher was embarrassed to give the new President a tour. The ceilings were falling in, a 15 person limit was placed on the Oval Office, the Presidents bedroom was sinking. The house was gutted, everything inside of it was replaced. This also brought the addition of a shelter able to withstand a nuclear bomb. It took 3 1/2 years to complete.⠀⠀
⠀⠀The current White House furnishings can be credited to Jackie Kennedy. She is responsible for leading the effort to return the house to how the founding fathers would have seen it, returning objects that once belonged to them to place in the house. She is why the White House is the grand House we all know today.⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀New York, NY 1777-1800 ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
⠀⠀During the war, America's capital was moved many times. Although none of them were never official, they were used as such. Often moved due to the war, there were 8 cities used in the first years as a country. These included Philadelphia, PA, Baltimore, MD, Lancaster, PA, York, PA, Princeton, NJ, Annapolis, MD, Trenton, NJ, and New York, NY. Although the city never came onto the list until 1785 it was picked as the official location for Alfred to call "home".⠀⠀
⠀⠀The Congress of Confederation convened in the city's old City Hall on Wall Street in 1785, the building spending the next 5 years as the center of the country's power. When the United States constitution was ratified in 1787, delegates met at Fraunces Tavern as the old City Hall was being remodeled under plans to turn it into the new national government building. In this building Washington took the oath of office as president on April 30, 1789 on the second-floor balcony of the building, renamed Federal Hall.⠀⠀
⠀⠀In 1790 Washington, D.C. was selected as the new capital, and construction was started once plans were made. Pierre Charles L'Enfant, a French engineer and former officer in the Continental army, was put in charge by Washington to design the new capital city. Construction never began until 1972, and it wasn't ready to move into until 1800.⠀⠀
⠀⠀During the time it took to build the new capital city, Philadelphia was used once again as the nations capital. It was temporary, but this wait lasted 10 years before Washington, D.C. was deemed finished.⠀⠀

⠀⠀During the time Alfred spent "living" in the city, he didn't actually spend a lot of time in it. It was used as his official residence until the final decision for capital was finished being built. In 1790 when the government was moved to Philadelphia he didn't move with it, choosing to spend the 10 year wait in New York.⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Philadelphia, PA 1774-1777⠀⠀
⠀⠀
⠀⠀Alfred moved to Philadelphia at the time of the first Continental Congress meeting. This happened at the carpenters hall, in secret from the British. Every colony but Georgia sent representatives, signifying that the colonies were uniting. They talked of gaining freedom while still under British rule, suggested by Joseph Galloway, but it wasn't a very popular opinion. During the meeting Benjamin Franklin was in England, presenting the colonists' demands to repeal the intolerable acts to parliament in person. The Continental Association was created, barring trade with Britain until their demands were met. These efforts proved to be ineffective, King George III's response to the colonists' demands was "The die is now cast. The colonies must submit or triumph."⠀⠀
⠀⠀The intolerable acts weren't repealed. As agreed on the congress met again in 1775, also in Philadelphia. This meeting launched the war, although fighting had begun a month earlier.⠀⠀
⠀⠀During the same time the second continental congress was meeting, the Virginia convention in Richmond met. It is here where they began discussions of how to care out the war, although it wasn't until the year after that they wrote the Declaration of Independence which served as the official reasons for the war. It is at this convention that Patrick Henry spoke his famous words, "I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Independence Day 2017

⠀⠀"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."- First two sentences of the Declaration of Independence⠀⠀
⠀⠀On July 4th, 1776 America declared it's independence from Great Britain.⠀⠀
⠀⠀The Declaration of Independence was used as justification for the revolution, as it includes a list of charges against the British king. This list had 27 charges, the first 12 involve King George III's establishment of tyrannical authority in place of representative government. 13 through 22 involve how the parliament destroyed the colonists' right to self-rule. The last 5 abuses tell of specific actions that the King took to abandon the colonies and wage war against them. Listing these 27 abuses justified the colonists' reason to war, feeling as if their rights as British citizens gradually had eroded over time.⠀⠀
⠀⠀Today this holiday is celebrated all over the country, whether the person knows a lot about it, the basic meaning, or just like the many firework displays around the country. Each year Americans are expected to spend around $7 billion on decorations, beef, alcohol, etc,. How this holiday is celebrated just goes to show how much pride citizens hold for their country. Happy 241st birthday to the United States of America.⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Boston, MA 1760-1774⠀⠀
⠀⠀
⠀⠀The first year of being in Boston is the same year the Great Fire of 1760 had happened, only the one in the long line of conflagrations that occurred in the city. 174 houses, 175 warehouses, shops, and other buildings were damaged. The damages cost £53,334, with only £3,000 of repairs coming from the Massachusetts colonial legislature immediately. In the next few months donations from around the Empire would be sent in as word of disaster spread.⠀
⠀This was only the start of an eventful 14 years of living in Boston. Two of the most famous events in Boston, the Massacre and the Tea Party happened while he lived in the city. Although Alfred didn't directly participate he heard about it, adding to his feelings about certain things.⠀
⠀Despite the Boston Massacre not really being a "Massacre" (only 5 killed, 6 injured - also how the British soldiers were provoked with stones being thrown at them, not just killing in cold blood) it was described as such in propaganda to bring more people on the side of the revolutionaries. The Tea Party is a tipping point for Alfred, finally coming to terms with what he wanted and what he thought that his people wanted.⠀
-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-
⠀⠀In these years a lot changed. Alfred grew up a lot, and his mindset changed along with his body. By 1774 Alfred knew that it was time for independence, he firmly knew that that would be best for his people. Although before this he had known about the growing feelings in his people, watching the various events and hearing about them. He moved to Philadelphia for the formation of the Continental Congress, thus beginning him being formally involved in the revolution.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀New York, NY 1699-1760 ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
⠀⠀As part of the middle colonies, New York had began to become a large part in the colonies. People traveled in for business, and it being a port city helped keep it a center for boats. In 1754 the French and Indian war began, but Alfred didn't fight in it. At the time he was physically too young, but this didn't mean the colonists didn't go fight. They were mocked by the British for being "a untrained, ragtag group" when doing so, leading to the creation of the song "Yankee Doodle".⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀The war hadn't ended before he left New York for Boston. The decision to leave the city was brought on by the want to explore more of the cities that were growing, and Boston was the one Alfred chose. Later he would return to New York, but older and with a different mindset.⠀⠀
-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-
⠀⠀Moving Alfred to New York was a step to keep him more involved in the colonies, as he was growing older and able to handle it more with all he had learnt. During this time he was only about 13 physically, but in the next few years a lot of changes would be happening.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Jamestown, VA 1624-1699⠀⠀

⠀⠀When Alfred had been moved here it sort of signified the crowns now control over the colonies. (This also left him to avoid the "Starving Times" and other difficulties that building a new settlement brought.) In 1624, the colonies were made into Crown colonies and the Virginia Company was dissolved, but the colonies still were there for the purpose of providing goods to their mother country. Jamestown mainly produced tobacco, which drove the town into building more ports and warehouses, growing the city even more.⠀
At this same time the Puritans (Pilgrims) were learning more about their new home, expanding into what is the New England area. In 1639 the Providence Plantations colony was founded by Roger Williams after being expelled from the Massachusetts colony - the Puritans. He later established the Rhode Island colony from a charter he got in 1641, combining the two colonies.⠀
Around 1680 the middle colonies of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware began growing in prominence. The city of New York was one of the fastest growing cities at the time, with people from New England and Germany along with the existing Dutch population plus the addition of slaves causing this. -⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-⠀-
⠀Alfred would have lived in Jamestown until it was deemed necessary to move him in 1699. It was in this year that Jamestown was replaced with Williamsburg as the capital of Virginia. It was at this time when Alfred moved to New York for the first time. He had begun to grow older and it was decided to move him closer to more important areas.
