brown-nose, suck up

Post by James Trotta » Mon Apr 12, 2010 12:43 pm

I used to give my high school teachers a really hard time but in college I became a big suck up. I always had my hand up in class and I was usually the only one.

I am not a brown-nose, but I just want to do my best. I doesn't mean that I don't have a good relationship with my proffesors but I know it's better to study hard that to butter them up.

I didn't suck up professors, but my friend didn't think so. I was embarrassed.

I realized that I'm not a brown-nose type of person whereas it seems like hyun-ji's nature attitude.

I've realized that the suck ups get better grades in school.

When there is a brown-nose in the class, everybody does not like that person.

There are many students in our school who suck up to professors to get an A.

Not all students who talk too much with professor are sucking up their professor.

Sometimes, I envy a brown-nose. When I need to say something to professor, I always prepare how to say in my mind. Maybe I'm shy.

Don't suck up to him. You look like such an airhead sometimes.
