Hello everyone

I'm Jason. Trivia is my passion and I love to learn. If you knew how bad my grades were in school you'd find that very ironic.

I hope to get to know everyone
Later,
Jason

I wouldn't find that unusual at all, Jason [ the fact your grades are low but that you love to learn new things]
It's a problem for a lot more people than you might think.

Welcome Jason, and I'm sure your grades will improve once you've done a few hundred quizzes here, learning can actually be fun!

hi everyone!!

thanks for the warm welcome. I actually did graduate from college but I flunked a bunch of classes and had to make them up and was even suspended from school cause my grades were so bad. But about three or four years ago I started watching Jeopardy! religiously and because I like to play along I'm always trying to improve and learn more so I can get better scores. I'm pretty much a Jeopardy! groupie. lol
