Pinkie, I think it's great that your problem is being TOO smart for your classes, rather than the other way around. If you're already in the most advanced classes you can take, you might consider talking to your guidance counselor or your parents about whether you could do some sort of dual enrollment in some local college classes. Or take even harder classes next year. :shrug Probably not this school year, though, and I'd say just try to pay enough attention that you don't let your grades slip.
As far as college, it sounds to me like you would be bored at a school that isn't academically challenging. Other than that, only you can tell how far away you want to be. But college really is a chance to expand your horizons and try new things.

After junior year, I wished I could go back to sophomore year where I really didn't have to pay much attention and didn't have much Homework.
Regarding college, I recommend going to your guidance consoler. They would probably have some great advice for you as they are usually very knowledgeable. Check out this link which gives you a little quiz and can possibly give you some idea on the type of school you wish to attend. http://www.fiskeguide.com/belong.html

Aw joeguy, I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling well. I hope you can lie down a lot and rest and let the dogs hang out with you and cheer you up some.
Take it easy!!! Get well soon!!!
Early Tuesday morning I had to go to the emergency room with kidney pain. Turns out it was a kidney stone (which I figured, I've had them before). So I was in surgery Wednesday *they put in a tube between my kidney and bladder) and now I have to go for follow up today and Monday (with and outpatient surgery on Monday). Trouble is that my insurance company wants a referal from my primary care physiscian. And ofcourse, they are not there today. I am trying to page their doctor on call, but I don't think I am doing it right, because noone is calling me back :sad I am on bedrest, antibiotics and some mild pain medication.
astrogirl and joeguy, I really hope you both feel better soon! :grouphug
Joeguy, I am so sorry you are having trouble with you back.
I have back pain also. I had surgery in 1991 to remove a tumor, but thank God it was not cancer. I now have two disc that are bluging and they bother me from time to time, but I have a mild pain, just about every day.
I hope you get better soon.
Astrogirl, I am so sorry you have a kindey stone. I hear those little buggers are a real pain. I have never had one thank goodness, but I hope you get it passed and are back to your normal self soon.
Oh Joeguy and Astro - take good care of yourselves!!
Astrogirl - those stones are just awful! I hope you get the insurance straightened out.
My troubles today consist of having to fight with a collection agency over $750 due to the cable company that I canceled THREE YEARS AGO and returned the equipment (they said I didn't). Finally got it straightened out in October and got another letter yesterday. UGH! Thankfully, the cable company lady was nice, said it should have been straightened out and told the collection agency - again - to remove it.
I'm ridiculously anal about money and never ONCE paid anything late in my LIFE! I have excellent credit and didn't want that screwing it up!!! So it's not really troubles anymore, but it still irked me!!
Astrogirl....good luck on the insurance fiasco.....man can they be hardheaded jerks. while your in pain they want you to go shopping......jerks
today my back isn't hurting but the back of my right thigh feels like someone hit it witha ball bat. makes walking a real joy not to mention walking down steps, darn the luck

They were trying to charge us for hundreds of dollars and I kept telling them the cable guy took it with him when he switched out our box back in 1996! I called every single day until I managed to get someone to clear my account. :ohno Good luck getting that settled.
