Nothing Exciting

The past two days I’ve done nothing but homework when I got home. That’s about the basis of my nights. During school, it’s just work, work, work, and then they pile all the assignments onto the weekend, reducing my chance of having any life whatsoever, down to just about nothing…

I used to love that song so much~~ all of this forgotten music. I bet half the kids out there now have never heard of the backstreet boys, or n’sync.

Currently: getting ready to sleep

Reading: Pretties by Scott Westerfeld (see, I’ve had so much homework that I haven’t even finished this book in the past week, while the first book I finished in two days. I hate school…)

Where is this ‘break’ you speak of?

Teachers talk about long weekends, winter ‘breaks’, march ‘break’, etc, etc. And yet, there is never an actual break from work. Over a four day weekend, there were tests to study for, and presentations to prepare. Over Winter Break, there was a science project, history ISP, math ISP, and careers ISP. Either my definition of ‘break’ is different from the school’s, or the teachers’ or the TDSB just like breaking rules. I thought it was illegal to give more than 2 hours of homework to students, per subject, per night. And yet here I am, staring at about 2+ hours of Biology homework. And I thought teachers weren’t allowed to give homework, projects, etc during breaks or on holiday weekends. So unfair….

The snowboarding event seemed to be doing okay, last time I checked (which was about an hour ago…). Canada was in third in the second run, though it’s hard to hold a place unless you’re first. Even then it’s hard.
Currently, the US hold 8 medals, Germany 6, France 6, and Canada has 4. At least we’re fourth. Hopefully, we get something for snowboarding. It seemed like the lady in third was doing pretty well, though the Switz competitor was REALLY fast, having a time of only 24.45, I believe. That’s crazy! Everyone else kept wiping out on the course… A lady from Australia took a huge, and painful looking wipeout on her second run… while a Japanese woman didn’t fair much better… I think the Canadian course is a little slippery…

In English, we wrote a journal entry from the perspective of one of the characters. I chose Ralph… which I kind of regret, since the people doing Piggy or Simon would have their journals a little shorter than I will….

Bio presentations was…. okay… forgot to do the ‘hook’ at the beginning, though… C’est la vie, what’s done is done. Then tech presentations seemed to go over well, after my stupidity, and a moments panic…

See, I’d say I hate Mondays, but it’s Tuesday, so that really wouldn’t work.

Currently: Doing my bio homework….

Reading: Er… I need to find a book… preferably one from the library… it’s free.

Listening to: Today was a Fairytale by Taylor Swift (aha~ she’s such a ditz in Valentines day. It’s so funny!)

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.

First Day Back…

First day back to school. Joy. I came home and had to complete math homework, an over-night careers assignment, my math ISP, my science project. It’s so stupid that these teachers give us all this to do over the break, I do them, and then when I ask questions, I learn that I need to redo them. I hate school.

Then today, I got one of my friends a snowglobe, and it broke. I didn’t do anything wrong, and yet it broke. It soaked my backpack, pencil case, my work, and two of my brand-new books I had gotten for x-mas. I think I seriously care more about my books than my life… So now, my books are water damaged, and everything in my backpack smells like vinegar. Stupid snowglobes. I vow not to put anything glass in my back EVER AGAIN.

Sigh.

I got 92 on my history ISP essay, 18/20 on part one of my careers assignment, 70 on my science (sad…). I don’t like school.

Currently: Getting ready to sleep.

Reading: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (I literally have 28 pages left…)

Listening to: Naturally by Selena Gomez

Virus Scans Suck

As I’ve learned through experience, all virus scans suck. I’ve tried about seven different companies including Norton, Mcafee (spelling?), Windows, and the list goes on. However, each one of them suck. For every single virus scan I’ve had, I’ve gotten either tapped by spyware, invaded by a virus, or something else along that line. Either way, they’ve all failed me.

So now, my laptop is out of commission for a website gave me this virus where the whole computer freezes and nothing can be accessed or moved. So sad. There goes like half of my assignments and projects from the years past.

Currently: Starting my homework. I know, even during winter break I have to deal with homework. Explain this lack of logic, please!

Reading: The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen (I LOVE HER BOOKS ^^) (Just Listen was so awesome)

Listening to: Come What May by Nicole Kidman (spelling… again…), and that guy…..

Working Sunday

Yay~ I understand Trig. Thank Goodnes!

Hehehe… so today’s basically been a work day, catching up on all the work I’ve skipped or have been too lazy to complete.

However, in the middle of it all, I went A.D.D and started watching videos on youtube. This girl (I think the user’s a girl…) who’s username is MyVampireEyes. She makes the videos for animes such as Shugo Chara, Pandora Hearts etc and they’re always so awesome. I was watching some of her videos again and wish I could make one to…

Well, I have tried, and I’ve completed a few, but I have yet to figure out how to actually get it online…

Here are some of her/his… videos =)
(the beginnings are like her little theme songs, they vary as time goes on)

Enjoy~~
