Transcription

  • Teacher: Okay class - spell "Wednesday".
  • James: Uhhh...I-I don't know how to spell Wednesday.
  • Teacher-James: Well, James just sound it out.
  • James: Oh, okay.
  • James: So, like this?
  • Teacher: No James, it's "wed-nes-day".
  • *Aggressive sniff*
  • James: You said sound it out, and that's how you sound it out.
  • French Student: *stereotypical French laugh*
  • French Student: zou think zou have it bad - deux is spelt with an "x"!
  • French-James: *stereotypical French laughing, slowly turns into crying*
  • I think it comes to no surprise that I am terrible at spelling.
  • I feel like everyone in life falls into two categories:
  • either you're good at math and bad at reading
  • ...or
  • you're weaird.
  • And if you've seen my other videos you know that I'm a "math boi".
  • My mom told me that I have dyslexia because she has dyslexia, and I have all the symptoms
  • ...but
  • we never got that diagnosed by a doctor...
  • soooooo...
  • *phfff*
  • You can't make me take my meds, Mom!
  • A lot of times what I do to cover up the fact that I spell lower than a first grade level...
  • ...is I will purposely misspell words
  • to the point where it's obviously a joke.
  • You thought I was doing that to be funny
  • but it's actually 'cause I have zero self-confidence in my spelling,
  • and I don't want anyone to point out my mistakes.
  • I mentioned this in a different video, but in elementary school I was put into an honors program
  • and everyone had to take spelling tests a grade ahead of their level.
  • And by everyone, I mean "everyone except me"
  • because I failed every single spelling test.
  • So I had to take spelling tests that were on level.
  • Ew.
  • Every week when we took the spelling test, I would have to move to the back of the classroom
  • and the teacher would stand right next to me.
  • She would call out everyone else's words which had like 8 syllables
  • like antidisestablishmentarianism,
  • and then she would turn to me, and give me my on level word.
  • Teacher: James your word is: cat
  • *sniff*
  • *exhales from mouth*
  • Also one year our class did a spalling bee and everyone had to participate
  • and like,
  • I didn't even care that I was the first one out.
  • Hey that's almost my name.
  • Another thing that I mentioned in a pretty old video
  • is that I use to have a speech impediment when I was little.
  • I couldn't pwrounce my "r's" and I tawked wike dis.
  • Uh-I'm good now,
  • pfft...
  • obviouswei.
  • So every other day during school I had to go to a speech therapy class.
  • And one day the teacher who taught me how to pwonounce my "r's'" -
  • I'll call her "Mrs. Kool-Aid" -
  • gave me this sheet of paper with a bunch of waindrops *beep* raindrops on it
  • and she said
  • Mrs Kool-Aid : For every raindrop on this page, say the word: raindrop.
  • But then she just left the room
  • and I said :
  • James: Huh...
  • Well I'm not going to do this!
  • I didn't say waindrop a single time
  • cause like, no one was even there, no one would've seen me not saying waindrop
  • so why would I do something that I didn't wanna do?
  • But then, the funny part is, when she came back she asked:
  • Mrs Kool Aid: Are you finished saying your raindrops?
  • James: Nooooo
  • Mrs Kool Aid: Well how many did you say?
  • James: I didn't say any
  • Mrs Kool Aid: You stupid child
  • I told her the truth for some reason!
  • I don't know why, it was probably the easiest lie in my life to get away with,
  • but that's why I remember this story.
  • I'm still mad at myself for telling the truth!
  • And I had to say raindrop a bunch of times in front of her
  • and she would only go to the next waindrop until I said it right,
  • and it was tewwible!
  • It weally hurt my feelwings.
  • Since I was struggling with reading and spelling I had to get an "I.E.P."...
  • an Increable Excelent Persinality.
  • Which meant I had to go a special class for a little bit during school,
  • and the teacher who taught this class was none other than Mrs. Kool-Aid.
  • *Kool-Aid Voice* OOOOOHHHH YEEEEEEE
  • I don't know why I said it like that.
  • I don't remember anyone ever telling me I was put into a special needs class;
  • I just remember going into speech therapy every other day
  • and then those classes slowly morphed into teaching me how to read and spell.
  • I don't know, I thought reading this book would've helped me talk betta.
  • Two other kids were in the reading class with me
  • and I remember the day when reading for me just clicked.
  • Us three were given a simple sentence to read, it was about bees,
  • it was so simple it was literally just:
  • And then Mrs. Kool-Aid asked us:
  • Mrs Kool-Aid: 'K...how do bees defend against wasps?
  • and the other two kids said:
  • Kids: They sting them.
  • And I said
  • What? No, you mowons! Didn't you wead this?
  • *Large gasp*
  • James: The words on this paper have meaning when are placed in a certain order and convey information.
  • Also I never want to get hugged by a bee.
  • So I was in these classes all the way until the 6th grade.
  • I was getting better at reading, still wasn't great but I was getting better at it.
  • And one day Mrs. Kool-Aid said:
  • Mrs Kool-Aid: You know James, you should try competing in The Battle of the Books.
  • James: Battle of the Books?
  • James: BATTLEOFDABOOKS??!
  • James: BaTtLe Of Da BoOkS!?!?! (RIP headphone users)
  • James: Finally reading sounds fun!
  • At my school Battle of the Books was this competition where students were given a list of 4 books to read
  • within a time limit of like 2 months.
  • I don't remember how long it was.
  • And after however many months it was
  • the contestants would sit in an auditorium
  • and take turns answering questions about the books,
  • and whoever got the most questions right would get a pizza party.
  • And that's where the battle part comes in
  • We'd kill each other for pizza!
  • And then there were two more rounds, each with four more books,
  • so there was a total of 12 books you had to read.
  • And we were allowed to be with a partner
  • so my partner was T.J.
  • James: Hey T.J., you remember Battle of the Books?
  • T.J.: Yeah man! It was GREAT!
  • Now you're probably thinking that 4 books in 2 months isn't that hard
  • especially since they're kids books,
  • but as someone who didn't read any books on my own, outside of school.
  • it was a challenge.
  • BUT I discovered a way to cheat the system!
  • I discovered something called:
  • audiobooks.
  • Instead of having to sit still and read the book
  • I could just have someone read the book to me.
  • And I would get through the book so much faster -
  • I'd be able to read a book in about 8 hours
  • as opposed to reading a book...
  • never
  • 'cause I would never be able to finish a book on my own.
  • And I was actually able to understand what was going on.
  • I legitimately thought that listening to audiobooks was cheating, because of how well it worked.
  • So I never told anyone my secret...
  • until just now.
  • Pwease don'wt tell anywone.
  • Also I didn't just turn on an audiobook and start playing video games.
  • No
  • I sat in my bed next to the CD player and followed along with the book
  • and sometimes I even took notes.
  • I've wanted to talk about my love for audiobooks for so long,
  • but I can't
  • because then people will think I'm getting paid by a certain company,
  • But I'm NOT!
  • And I'll prove it!
  • Instead of wasting your money on quality audio books made by professionals
  • you guys should all check out LibriVox.org
  • where you can listen to free public domain audio books.
  • Which means there's only old-timey classical books on it like Aesop's fables
  • which in my opinion is all you need. (foxi boi)
  • Anyway, T.J. and I did the Battle of The Books,
  • and for one of the rounds T.J. was sick
  • so I had to answer the questions all by myself.
  • And I never forgave him for that.
  • And also the whole time I was keeping track of everyone's points
  • and me and T.J. got the most questions right.
  • My math skills are finally being useful.
  • I was already craving the pizza.
  • After the last round the teacher said,
  • Teacher: Okay I'll tally up all the points, and let you all know who the winner is in a couple of weeks.
  • And since I was keeping track of everyone's score I already knew...
  • ...we won. (nice animation)
  • I turned to T.J and I said,
  • James: *Whispering* T.J.,
  • Guess what?
  • We already- Oh! This is the round that you were sick on.
  • How did I not notice that until just now?
  • But then a couple of weeks go by,
  • and I'm not hearing any news about a pizza party.
  • I was expecting to walk into class one day
  • and there would just be a box of pizza boxes waiting for me.
  • But that never happened. :(
  • The teacher in charge of the competition was the librarian,
  • so one day I went up to her and I asked:
  • James: So-uhh- did you ever say who won the Battle of the Books?
  • A-Also my favorite pizza is barbecue chicken.
  • And she said:
  • Librarian: Oh! These two 5th graders won. (WHAT?!)
  • So the Battle of The Books was for both 5th AND 6th graders.
  • I was a 6th grader so I went to all the 6th grader battles.
  • but APPARENTLY
  • there was some low-life 5th grader
  • who got every single question right
  • and STOLE MY PIZZA PARTY.
  • And that taught me a valuable lesson:
  • even when you work hard, you don't always get what you want in life.
  • but that's okay.
  • Because one day...
  • *deep inhale through the nostrils
  • You'll be an adult, and you can buy all the pizza you want without having to read first! (if you are rich)
  • *Coughing*
  • Boyinaband: Hello there!
  • Any of you down for a game of soccer- I-I mean football?
  • This is 100% James.
  • This isn't someone else doing the end card-this is me.
  • This is James.
  • I would never ask someone else to make an end card for me, because I was too lazy. Hehe.
  • You guys should check out the channel
  • g-get..
  • GetMadz?
  • 'Getmadz' am I pronouncing that right?
  • He helps me edit my videos for my 2nd channel -
  • that's right, I have a 2nd channel, with a total of...s-six videos count 'em six
  • six videos
  • And also, as per usual, I need to thank my colorers who made this video look absolutely amazing.
  • Thanks guys!
  • I appreciate it!
  • Everyone go watch these guy's videos for a solid 4,000 hours.
  • Including "madz's"
  • "m-madz"
  • And as always...
  • ...what does James say, for his outros again?
  • Strap up if you're going on a bumpy ride!
  • Wait th-that-that's not it at all...
  • Buckle up!
  • Wait-t-that's way too American.
  • Oh yeah!
  • Wear your seatbelt!!
