You can't have nothing but D- and F grades and still be on track for graduation. You can't even "sustain" those grades, as they're at the bottom already. If you said you needed to sustain a C, that's understandable. My high school failed anybody who dropped below a C average. Actually, depending on the situation, having less than that meant you either were rejected outright (application basis only, no open enrollment), kicked out, or unable to graduate. No, though, you are already failing. Even if you DID pass earlier classes, you have to fulfill all your graduation requirements, which include English and maths. You already said you waste your day writing lyrics (you have yet to prove you've got anything despite saying you can make an album in a week; the same goes for your comics and MMA claims) in class. Clearly, no, you are not paying attention. Even if you DID take notes, there's no way you could reasonably fill ten notebooks in a single class. I wrote down almost everything in my calc II class this year and only took up a section of a notebook. You can't blame your curriculum, either. There are dozens of resources for learning, not just the textbook. Khan Academy, Wolfram Alpha, Math Is Fun, Paul's Online Notes, and my personal go-to PatrickJMT are only a few out there. Or you could ask a teacher, because they could help identify and break down any trouble you have understanding the problem.
At best, you may have to pursue a GED, but that still requires some measure of proficiency.
As for your schedule, do you really expect us to believe you wake up at three each morning AND attend school AND get ten hours of sleep AND have time to practice being a MMA master-international rock star-comic artist-game programmer-whatever the hell else you claim to do? You never allotted any time for homework, either.
Actually, let's take a look at that schedule. Wake up at three and study until four, practice guitar until five, physically train until five-thirty, then get ready for school until eight. Seven hours, you get out at three. More physical and guitar practice until five, another hour and a half training until six-thirty, three hours of "stuff fun" until nine-thirty, an hour for dinner and chores until you go to bed at ten-thirty. However, following that schedule, you would only get four and a half hours of sleep on a school night. Where's homework in all that? You have an hour of study in here, maybe another two hours of study during school to be generous. Again, you've talked about wasting study time on other pursuits. That's not five hours of study and one and a half hours of training, as you stated immediately before. If you're going to lie about studying, wouldn't you at least put in the effort to stay consistent? As my old teacher used to say, 90% of college success is time management. You can't even pretend to have a good schedule, which brings me to my next point:
I have a suggestion. How about you stop pushing the blame on other people and hold yourself accountable for once? You can blame teachers and the curriculum all you want, but you've never proven yourself one to expend effort in anything. There is no way you can genuinely study for five hours a day and not learn anything. Do you honestly think this "hardcore atheist" is merely coasting along without applying herself? Even if it were the case that she's naturally good with numbers, it's unlikely she could do so well without doing homework or even studying. It certainly has nothing to do with (lack of) religion, either. The way you worded your first post, it's like you expect to succeed just on the basis that you're a Christian, while the "others" should fail. That's not how the real world works. Unless, of course, you have the money to pay your way through anything, then real world rules need not apply.
