Read the words

I never used to enjoy studying science in school, but now I love it, on account of this great computer game we're using in my physics class. It's a racing game, with cars. We're working in groups to make changes to our cars, and the group that makes the best changes to its car will win the race. My group is trying to make our car drive fast over bumps, and turn corners at high speeds, and stuff like that. We have to study a lot of physics to do this project, so I've been learning a lot. To tell the truth, I'm not learning anything in my other classes, compared to this one. I mean, in this class I actually have a reason to study, because I'm actually going to use the knowledge, you know — unlike my other classes, where I just don't care.
