Two More Left

I have…about three more hours until my history exam. And I just don’t feel like studying. Basically, I’ve hardly studied at all. Either I’m too lazy, or my friend RD is wearing on me, and I’m beginning to lose all initiative in school. The saddest part is, RD gets 90s without doing homework, trying on tests, or listening in class, while I get 60s for paying attention, taking careful and neat notes, and studying like hell. Who wins? He does. ALWAYS.

So, with my epic distractions come my friends. I’m talking to them, and there’s stuff about anime, youtube videos, and french. But no history or science cramming. Just random ‘Look this is funny!’ kind of videos.

Here’s one of them:

See that’s both entertaining and mildly disturbing.

Two more exams to go. Two! Today and tomorrow, and then the torture is over… until June. So, when I get back tomorrow, everyone will get to hear my rant about school! Yay! And then I’ll crawl into my little corner and read all the books I had taken out from the library, and shove all history and science facts out of my head. Though I’ll probably need those next year… Who knows what might happen.

*Cries* I may make it into Gr 11 Honours Math Science and Tech. Which is the program I’m in now, but I might actually pass through. That’s good on one side, because then I can stay at NV. On the other hand though, it’s SO MUCH WORK. The courses you need to take next year is: Gr 12 Chemistry, Gr 11 Functions, Gr 12 Functions and Relations, Gr 11 Physics, and some Gr 12 tech course. Fun! So much math….*sad*

Historic thoughts for the day:
Hitler did not change history. HE MADE IT. You can’t change something that was never created.
Triple Alliance-Germany, Italy, Austria-Hungary
Triple Entente-France, Britain, Russia
History is dumb, because the Triple Entente are the allies, and yet they aren’t the Triple Alliance. (sigh)

Lalalala~~

So history is boring me to death and science isn’t any better. Only two more! I tell myself that, but that doesn’t make me feel any better. Especially with this freaking cold….

Math fact for the day:
Alikiya+studying=epic boredom. See, with just that, I should get an A in math~
If only….

So I should really get back to studying, though I probably won’t. I’d either get distracted, or I’ll just sit there, staring at the review sheets and think ‘Why can’t monkeys fly?’ I swear, I can be Einstein! Starting… Never… It’s odd though. I can memorize music lyrics faster than anything, but when it comes down to scientific or historical facts, it just flies over my head to be forgotten. I can remember the stupidest of things, and when it comes down to school, everything slips away as easily as water. Sigh. My common sense is somewhere up there, and yet my math skills are about rock bottom.

I think I’ll just be a hobo when I grow up. Aim low. Shoot high!

Currently: Testing my friend in history. That’s the closest I’ll get to hardcore studying

That is what happens when I’m bored… hehehe~~

Good luck with exams!

I wish I could scream.

Sigh. I’m sick, and that sucks. So I’m coughing away, while attempting to concentrate on studying exams. It’s not easy. I can’t wait until Thursday. Can. Not. Wait.

I’m half-way done studying for history, so I need to start studying for science soon. Joy.

Facts of history (Just because I’m too lazy to start anything) :
-Nellie McClung was the woman who fought for the right to vote, and was voted as Albertan legislature after
-British Privy Council ruled that women were ‘persons’
-Louis Riel was a Metis leader, who led the Metis to many rebellions
-The rebellions of 1837 were the cause of Upper and Lower Canada

-Battle of Passchendale-Mud; Many died and when it was over, it was abandoned
-Battle of the Mons- Last Battle; Pointless; Occurred Nov 10, 1918-the day before the war ended

Okay, now I’m bored, and you’re probably falling asleep
Good luck on exams (again)

My Life Is Average

I’m bored out of my mind today. My parents have me locked up in my room ‘studying’. So I attempted and failed. I mean, history and science. I know I should study, but they make me tired, and I only woke up an hour ago.

In my boredom, I went to mylifeisaverage.com and began looking at random entries. Here are the ones I thought were interesting//funny.

1.Today, I’ve read a few MLIA’s about town names like Intercourse, Paradise and so on. It makes me wonder what unimaginative, lazy person named my town “Newtown”. MLIA.

2.A few days ago, my family went to my cousins house. The first thing my mom said when she saw their dog was, “Oh you look so masculine!” my uncle (her brother) looked annoyed at her and said to his dog, “Don’t worry, Lucy, they used to say the same thing about her.” I’ve never seen my dad laugh harder in my entire life. MLIA.

3.Recently, I was eating Burger King food with my sister-in-law when she noticed that the sandwich wrappers have the DISHWASHER SAFE logo on them. It’s nice to know that if I ever need to wash a sandwich wrapper, I won’t have to do it by hand. Thanks, Burger King. MLIA.

4.Today in psych class, we were discussing ‘personal bubbles’. If you are too close to someone, without even realizing it, they will move away from you. Interested, my friend decided to try it. It worked on three people, then she tried it on my boyfriend. She got right up in his face, and looked him dead in the eye. He looked at her, blinked and stepped even closer. She stepped back. I love him. MLIA

5.Today my mom told me that this morning she went to get a mug out of one of our cabinets. It happened to be way in the back, and when she picked it up, she heard something move inside it. Thinking it was a cockroach and being terrified of them, she threw the mug into the sink, screaming. When she dared to look over the edge of the sink, it was an just empty mug with a little paper star. I put that star there months ago in the hopes that it would freak her out. I really wish I could high five my past self. MLIA.

6.Today, I was eating at a restaurant and an elderly man came up to our table and asked if he could do a magic trick for us while we waited for our food. We agreed and he did a couple of really awesome tricks. When our waiter came back, we asked him how long the guy had been working there. Apparently, he doesn’t. MLIA

7.I convinced my best friend that my boyfriend saw the world in black and white. When we got to a traffic light he started screaming WHAT COLOR IS IT? I in turn yelled GREEN when it was red. He ran the light. I think I’m in love. MLIA

Okay. I think I should stop for the day. I seriously need to start studying…

Have funn this weekend everyone. And let us continue to keep our goal for this year. Stay Alive! Sound good?

Currently: ATTEMPTING to study

Listening to: Happy by Leona Lewis

It Is FINISHED!

Math. Is. Done. No more. GONE! Yay!! *does a funny dance*
So happy~

I missed a question at the end of the exam. I just blank. It was the last question though. I think my mind just decided to stop to take a breather. Overall, though, I think I did well *crosses fingers* But we’ll see by Feb 3rd.

For my history exam, I am going into it with an 85. My lack of minutes for my presentation made it drop by five… so hopefully exams bring it back up~~ As for science, I’ve got an 83 going into the exam. I need to get that up. I’m determined to get a high(er) average.

But for now, I think I’ll just relax for a while~ I’ve worked my butt off for the math exam. Tomorrow, or tonight, I shall begin doing so for my history and science exam!

Currently: listening to music, while writing.

Reading: Shrimp by Rachel Cohn (Gingerbread was way good^^ The ending was a happy, teary, kind of ending. Cyd Charisse is cool~ but that Justin kid was the perfect duplicate of a careless, stupid, irresponsible, boy. She did well making these characters~)

So Close!

Almost done semester one. Two more days until my math exam (not happy at all about that one…). I’ve finished my science assignments and have a quiz on Thursday for History. Everything is slowly winding down.

I should seriously study for math…

Today I took an attempt at playing my flute (which I haven’t played since grade 8 ) and almost passed out from hyperventilation. Not smart, but I’m happy that I still know how to play (basically) and I can make a sound (though not a good one). But one of the keys are busted… Need to get that fixed eventually….

So Close to the end of math and science. Yay~

Currently: Starting review for math

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.
