Whenever I got good grades in school I never called myself smart ._.
Because I have never thought of myself as "smart". I think of myself as unbelievably average.
I've had other people call me smart because I never had anything below an A or an A+ in classes like Math and all of my History classes (I had like 3), but I disagreed with them no matter what they said.
I just like getting my homework done during class or before school was over for the day, and I paid insanely close attention during class is all haha.
