Screwed Up Presentations

Ack! It was too short. That was my first thought when I had stopped speaking for my History presenation. How right I was. The assignment sheet said ‘subtract five marks for every minute under ten. I had stopped at seven. I’m so stupid. When I timed it at home, it was fifteen. It must have magically turned shorter over night…

Well, at least I am done with all presentations. I had also done my Careers presentation right after, and I know that had gone much better than my history one. So History and Careers presentations are done. All that’s left are science projects, and exams~

Then Semester Two~~
*Happy*

2010 looks good starting… January 28th~

Currently: Typing out Science assignment

Reading: Just finished Valiant, it wasn’t too bad… wasn’t the greatest though. Starting either Cupcake or Ironside… We’ll see.

School Tomorrow….

Gah! There’s school tomorrow? I thought we had a two week break… Oh! It’s over? Really? Damn… Hm? What was I doing? Work.

It seems that even when we have a break, we don’t really have a break. It’s so screwed up this system. TDSB says that teacher’s can’t give more than two hours of homework each day. Then why do I spend seven hours each night in my room doing work? TDSB says that teachers can’t give us work over breaks. Then why did I not have a break, but my math ISP to complete, my history ISP to work on, my careers ISP part two to complete and a science project. All due the first or second day back, except my history presentation. How does that work, or make any sense!? TDSB says that cafeterias shouldn’t sell junk food or pop. So in the machines at my school, there is water and juice, but in the cafeteria they sell pop and the most unhealthy food. I’m not complaining but obviously, TDSB rules lie. None of their rules are helping the balance of education we have. Instead, the students striving to get into good universities and colleges to get good jobs in society, are all living their lives glued to books. There’s no time for life when you have a thousand projects to complete, while balancing homework, volunteer work, and ACTUAL work on top of it all. Teachers and parents are always saying ‘you should get a job’ easier said than done Einsteins; 1. Interviews and resumes have to match and be approved; 2. We have to worry about doing well in school whilst still holding onto our job; 3. You want to get me a job, and do all my work, then BE MY GUEST.

I can not wait ’til I’m done with school, then no more stress from school, or volunteer work, or teachers, or parents. Just one simple focus. Work. Sure it’s be stressful too, but it won’t be four different subjects of stress, just one. If I’m an accountant. Numbers. If I’m an optometrist. Science. One main focus.

Being a kid is stressful. The only time we have is during the summer, which doesn’t count for much, since half of us are still confined in our rooms, cause all our friends are on the other side of the earth having the time of their lives.

Hahaha~ so there’s my rant for the day. Now I somehow feel a little bit lighter~

Winter Break Begins~

Yeah~! Winter Break is finally here. ‘Course there’s still work to be done, but at least schools on hold for a while.

Today was totally fun, and… free? Well, in first period History, our teacher was late, so another teacher filled in. all we did was chat, since there were only five people in the class~ Then in second period, Careers, my teacher let us talk and do as we pleased, so I happily finished Blue Bloods, and I have to say, the book is awesome. Not cliche, and not too out there. I enjoyed it a lot, so now I need to find the second book to read… In fourth, or well… third period, we just ran around the class taking pictures, drawing on the board, and chilling. It was hilarious some of the things my friends did. Then in last period… or fourth period? Our school counts lunch as period three, since some people have classes at that time, and so it’s a little confusing. Well, anyways, in math we just ran around the school, exchanged gifts (well I recieved, but I’m giving after the break ^^) and our teacher was surprisingly nice today, so she gave out chocolate and let us play cards, and draw all over the board, and run around to other classes. It was a fun day.

Later on, at 11:30? :40? somewhere around there, the Holiday Assembly started. It was pretty cool, even though some of the performances were the same as the ones from Destination NV. They did the study hall skit again, but I think it was better this time. It’s basically Quest Crew (america’s best dance crew season 2//so you think you can dance) but high school kid version. It was fun~ They also did a skit about the true meaning of Christmas which was good =) A few people sang, but I think my favourite perfomance was the teacher’s performance. First the male teachers did this kind of rockband thing, where they all play instruments and one female sings, so they did two of those, and then the female teachers came out and danced to Single Ladies by Beyonce. It was really good ^^

My favourite student performer was this girl who sang Fireflies by Owl City, she did it really well, and then everybody brought out their cell phones and started waving them back and forth. The whole assembly was awesome~

Currently: Just chilling. Finally~!!

Wasted Saturday

Today was a wasted day of life. All I did was go to piano lessons, come home, eat, and then sit in front of my computer and play games. I should seriously start on my homework. Last week before winter break~

Yay~~

Stressful Wednesday

So I’m finished with my history essay. But I have to finish my careers assignment by tomorrow, and I seem to have lost the assignment sheet. Not good. And I have a science quiz tomorrow, which’ll probably be like 5 pages long like our last quiz, making it into a test. Then I have to finish my math homework, and I don’t even know why I’m even on here typing. I should be doing my work!!

Currently: stressing over careers assignment
