If I woke up tomorrow and I was a genius I wouldn't like it at all. I don't want to know everything. I want to be able to learn. My only goal would be to dumb myself down. The drawbacks would be that everyone would think I'm snobby because I know everything. My friends and family would probably get annoyed because I would be correcting them all the time.

If I turned into a genius over night I honestly don't know what I would do. Maybe I would try to create different things that haven't been invented. I think my friends and family would be a little creeped out because I'm not all that smart as it is now. I think the draw back of being really smart would be that everyone would want me to do there homework which would be terrible.

If I woke up the next morning and found out that I had turned into a genius over night I would achieve many of my personal goals and expectations. I would be acing all of my classes with at least an A or B average. I would be passing all of my tests because I am a genius. I would end up going to a good college because if I am a genius I get good grades, and if you get good grades it can effect where you can go for college. If I was a genius there would be a few draw backs. Getting called names like a 'know it all' or people getting sick of me because I know all the answers to everything. Even now I correct people on their grammar. If I were a genius I would be correcting people like crazy! And I know that everyone would not like that at all. My friends and family might react to this by being a tad bit surprised. I am a smart person, but not the smartest in my bunch of family. But I am sure at some points my friends and family would appreciate it too. Because I could give them useful information that they didn't know.

All in all being a genius has its pro's and it has its con's. It would effect my life greatly.

If I woke up tomorrow and found out that I was a genius, my life would be really different. I would be able to skip up through high school and college, I could have a really good job at some high tech place, I would be able to do everything that I can't do now and do the things I can do now even better. The drawbacks would be that I might be TOO smart for people and I would probably make a lot of enemies because of it and I would probably get tired of always knowing everything and I'd get bored easily because I wouldn't have anything to learn. My friends, if they are real friends (corny, I know), would except me for who I am or had become. My family would be supportive through the whole thing.

If I were to wake up and realize I was a genius I would invent as many things as I can to make a lot of money. i would find cures to any sicknesses or diseases to help people in need. Also, if I were to become a genius overnight, my mom and dad would probably be shocked that I am so smart and probably have a heart attack because I kind of lack common sense. haha. Any drawbacks in becoming a genius might be that I would be too interested in getting smarter and inventing things that I would not pay attention to my friends as much. I think that being a genius might be fun thought. I would be smart!!!

if i woke up to be a genius i would not be able to do a single thing if i were a genius because i would feel wrong about doing them. Well for starts a few drew backs would be the lost of friends and maybe depression and so forth. They may act different around me but its what they think i would not really care because i would not act smart or all knowing.

If I woke up tomorrow and had become a genius my life would probably be very different. I could make new cures for sick people. They would become healthier because of the new medicine I had created. Becoming a genius would also change my life in a bad way, I would be expected to do everything right. If I messed up people wouldn't think I was such a great person anymore. My family would expect the most ot of me all the time. They might even ask me to help them with their problems as well. My friends would probably love it just because they thought I was some amazing person. All in all I wouldn't want to wake up tomorrow a genius because I am happy with who I am now.

If I woke up tomorrow and was a genius my life would change a lot. I would be able to pass all my classes, including Spanish. I would be able to go to college and make an easy career. Some of my friends might get mad if I left them here and forgot about them when I went to college. My friends wouldn't care to much but my mom would be very excited and would make me try to make an early career. My dad would be proud that I would be smart but a little sad because he wants me to make a career in sports.

Some goals i would achieve would be to create something no-one has ever created something different something amazing! Some draw backs of becoming a genius is that everyone would probally depend on you to answer there questions and they would always want your knowledge. My friends and family would be happy and pround of me. Even though i didn't do anything it just happened over-night....

If I woke up tomorrow and realized I had become a genius I would kinda be freaked out.one goal I would achieve would be to find out how i got these powers and who or what caused them. If there is a drawback to being a genius it's probably people asking you questions all the time and nobody leaving you alone. My brother would be jealous my mother would be happy and my friends would think of a way for me to use these powers to become rich and famous.

If overnight I turned into Albert Einstein I would change my life in many ways. First I would figure out some way to guess the winning lottery ticket then after becoming an Einstein/Bill Gates mix I would set about fixing the world's economic problems, and getting all A's in math class. It might be a pain though, Ms Thime might want me to teach her class in my spare time in tutorial, say so it might not be the best. Also people might just think i'm as nerdy as other famous genius.

I could use my newly found genius to pass school and make my parents happy. You could become a jerk to the people you know by knowing everything. First they might be happy for you than the might start to get irritated with your newly found genius.

They also come in brown and black, if the shininess of the leather is enough for you to make a statement and Louis Vuitton Outlet you want to play down the effect. The LV Surya handbag is extremely versatile, being as comfortable during the day as in the evening.
