If I woke up as a genius I would have my homework done in like 3 seconds. My Mom would really be impressed because she has really hard work to do and if I was a genius I would be able to help her get it done. I would be able to have the job I really want when I get older and be able to work hard but easy at the same time because I would know everything.

If I woke up as a genius,I would be able to pass all my classes at school easily. It would be great to not have to worry about failing. The drawbacks of becoming a genius would be that you wouldn't really have to take the time to learn new things. Some things are fun to learn(as long as its not math!). I think my friends and familt would be jealous of my new found intelligence because they wouldn't be able to ever tell me I'm wrong. I would always be right about everything.

If I woke up a genius it would make my life better. I could graduate from high school a few years early, with all A pluses. I could got o a big college, since I would have good grades, that's one of my biggest goals right now for the future. The only drawback I can see would be people not liking you. My friends and family would be happy for me, but they probably wouldn't like my new personality.

If I wake up tomorrow and I'm a genius then I think I would be astounded. Some personal goal I could achieve is to do better in classes and on my homework and tests. I don't know if there would be any drawbacks, maybe my friends would be upset cause I'm smarter but that's it and I think they could learn to live. I think my family would be very happy about the whole thing, but my friends I'm actually not that sure about, but I hope they would be happy for me. :) -Amanda.

If I became a genius over night some of my goals would include: improving my math skills, writing more often, and putting more effort into my schoolwork. Some drawbacks would be being stuck in classes with people on a different level then you. Another thing is I would get extremely bored in my classes because I either already know what is getting taught, or I got it as soon as the teacher said it. I think my friends and family would not act much differently, I know they accept me for who I am not matter my intelligence.

If I woke up tomorrow as a genius, I don't think I would like it. I think it would be boring to know everything, and I like learning (usually). If I were a genius though, I guess I could be better in school, and know learn about lots of new things that I would be able to comprehend, as a genius. I could also do other things, like try and help the world or something. If I did become a genius overnight, I think my friends and family would think that it was creepy and weird (that that would happen). But I guess that eventually they might adjust to it.

If I became a genius overnight I would work for NASA and get a lot of money so I could buy a lot of stuff. Then I would retire really early cuz I wouldn't like working there and do whatever I wanted. I would want to get rich. The drawbacks would be working late. Friends wouldn't like me correcting them all the time probably.

For personal goals i would probably achieve everything. Being a genius then i would put my mind to the task and ingeniously get everything done and good. I think a drawback would be everyone being intolerable to how smart you are and how you never get anything wrong. However this may not be true, Einstein was a genius and it took him years of being wrong before he found the theory of relativity. I think that my friends and family would be pretty annoyed at first but I would hope they would become considerately laid back about it.
