It wasn't until sophomore year biology where the teacher was the same regardless of the students and the situations that Mike was able to escape. Mike received 98 and 99 percents on tests and quizes because he was interested in the subject.
The narrative goes on further to keep telling of Mike's trials and tribulations now as a regular student who had been placed in the lower learning for his career at Mercy and how he was able to overcome that and become more of a better student on the regular track.
Mike Rose's blog is comprised of his stories and ideas behind his main belief in the common person. It ties in past work that relates to today and new work that also relates.
