Bright student vs. gifted learner?... Very good info Perfect - this explains better what I've known and tried to share with parents and teachers. Gifted, bright, smart, talented are different things.

I woke up at 7:30 and started getting ready at 8:30... at 9:30, I was still just sitting around and by 10:00 I decided that a lazy day would be nice.
