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…)

Our Story Is Just Beginning~♪

Those are lyrics from ‘What You Mean To Me’ from Starstruck. I love Disney movies mainly because of the music in it. Though the stars aren’t bad, the storylines are all so cliche.

Apparently, Disney has recently decided to make a new TV series based on this extremely long books series Camp Confidential by Melissa J Morgan. I love the series, it’s definitely interesting… and REALLY REALLY long. I think it’s up to 22 books now…? Or 21. Either way, it’s a high number. But I have to say, it’s better than the Magic Treehouse Series. Oh god, that series is at, like, book #45 or something, and it’s still going, never, ever, ever, ever ending.
I think I seriously read too much..

Speaking of books though, I finished Uglies this morning. It was a really good book, full of adventure, and romance, and all that jazz. I can’t wait for tomorrow when I can borrow the second book~~

And on to tomorrow. It’s that time of the month kids… School. Back to school to be exact. Back to the gray hallways, the blue lockers, and the uncomfortable, red chairs. Time for lessons to start and piles of homework to pile up. Yay. I’m moody now, wait until the count down to September. I hate school, and next year will be classes straight from hell, well I think the math teacher is at least. *hate hate hate hate hate*

Biology’s a ….. nevermind.

I hate tests. They shouldn’t be allowed to exist. Sigh. I mean, just give us the lesson. You don’t actually have to test our knowledge or give us a mark. If we want to learn, we’ll listen, and we’ll learn. If we don’t, then there are other people in the class who would love to listen to you banter about a subject that I really don’t care about.
From English, I learn new words and all that jazz; Science, I learned about climate and optics, which will come in handy in my future; History, I can relate to many events in history that come up in like presidential/prime minster…al? speeches, or during the school day when we celebrate stuff like Martin Luther King day; Careers and Civics, well that’s the stuff I’ll need when I’m older and have to deal with the jail system (not that I’m thinking about getting arrested or whatever) or getting a job (I think we all need that… unless you’re a hobo then that’s a different story); In Business, you learn about the TSX, businesses, how they run, etc. I might just need that in life. Especially the TSX stuff. Everyone buys stocks these days; In Technology, we learn how to use tools and how to handle wood. Knowledge that I’ll probably use when helping my dad fix our basement; In Biology, I learned enough to be able to identify certain problems/bacteria/organs/enzymes when watching shows like Dr. Oz. All this I learned through school. As much as I hate half those subjects, I still learned something useful. However, I don’t need to be tested for EVERY SINGLE unit, chapter, whatever! It’s pointless, and just makes me rant, as I’m currently doing… Sigh

Also notice how math isn’t there at all? Well, seriously? When will I need to know the equation of a line or parabola. When will I need to know all this trigonometric equations and formulas. I still have them all memorized, but have yet to use it in the real world. All of the useful math, I learned in gr 4-6. Done.

Another good video for Shugo Chara. This time, Utau is also in it.

This is a great opportunity to whoever can sing (I can’t!) Aha~ I love Marianas Trench music~

Another Win~

Sorry about yesterday. I came home at like 7, ate dinner, did the dishes, shovelled snow (if only it fell in Vancouver… that’d be helpful…), did my homework, and instantly fell asleep at 11. So I didn’t really have time to post…

Woot! We won another Gold medal and Silver~ Kristina Groves won another medal in speed skating while Figure Skate Partners (Dancers) Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won Gold~! Yay Canada^^
Also, there was that figure skater, Joannie Rochette, who’s mother died on Sunday from a heart attack. She is still planned to compete in her event though. May her mother rest in peace.
Currently, the USA is STILL first with 25 medals, Germany continues as second with 22, Norway’s got 14, Russia got ahead of us, having 12 medals, and Canada sits in 5th place with 10 medals.

So nothing interesting has happened in the past two days… Just school. Projects, etc. Today was signature day though, where we were to run around the school looking for the correct teacher to sign our course selection sheets, which determined what courses we will have next year. It was quite… tedious. People tended to crowd around one teacher, and you’d be stuck there, but if you were to walk away for a minute or two, everyone in that crowd would have dispersed, content with their signatures.

Evacuate the School!

So today was very interesting, yet very boring.

This morning I was sitting outside my history room (even though I don’t actually have that class), since my business room’s hallway was lonely. Then Danica cam over and told me to go upstairs with her when my friend V came. So we went, and when we opened the doors to the second floor, I immediately smelt gasoline. After saying this, thinking that it was probably just some chem accident, the principal or the vice-principal came onto the PA system and told us that because of the ‘mysterious’ odor, classes on the second and third level were cancelled. My first period class was on the first floor, so I had to go to class, while Danica went to the cafeteria (where classes that were even numbered were placed). After, they continuously updated us (exasperating my teacher), saying that the fire department was there, and they were venting the second and third floor. For second period, I was in the auditorium (where classes with odd numbered rooms were sent) and was bored to tears for an hour or so.

At lunch time (well, before lunch), they announced that we would have to evacuate the school due to a gas leak on the second level. Everyone was jumping for joy. No class! No homework! Too bad I was one of the few who did have homework. Sigh. So today was basically a half day, due to the fact that our health was in danger. This took them about three hours to figure out. Thanks.

Maybe if they can’t fix it fast, we won’t have school next week too! Hehehe~~ Okay, well technically that would NOT be a good thing, seeing as how we’d have to make up for a week’s worth of work, but hey! Freedom is good sometimes.

First day back

First day back and the homework attacks. I already have bio homework, which I think is kind of sad. I know, I know, “Wait until you get to university, then you’ll be crying!” but I’m not in university yet, so I can complain about the now, because that’s all I know.

So my schedule got messed up, so I have Business first period, Bio second, lunch, Tech Design fourth, and English last. Bio and Eng switched for me, so I went from a good bio teacher to a bad one. Plus my English teacher, I just don’t understand. It took me a while to figure out he was talking about the Prime Minister, which then somehow turned into a lecture about consuming snakes in Africa. Me and my friend T spent the period wondering what the heck he was trying to tell us.

My friend Danica got me to watch this Japanese drama: Hana Yori Dango (Boys Before Flowers).

Description:

Makino Tsukushi is the only poor student at Eitoku Gakuen, the school of the ridiculously rich and privileged that is ruled by Flower 4 or F4, a group of four boys who come from extremely powerful families: Domyoji Tsukasa, the leader and heir of the Domyoji World Finance Group; Hanazawa Rui, the introverted son of a large company; Nishikado Sojiro, a player who is the heir of a tea ceremony school; and Mimasaka Akira, a madam killer with ties to the underground. If a student gets on the F4’s bad side, he/she gets a red notice and is bullied and driven out of school.

Makino hopes to pass her days quietly– without drawing any attention to herself– but one day, she stands up to Domyoji in defense of her friend. The next day, Makino gets the dreaded red notice. Even though she is harassed, Makino decides to keep going to school because she is a “tough weed”. She declares war right back on the F4. Her resolve gets the attention of her crush Hanazawa Rui and oddly enough, rouses romantic feelings in her worst enemy, Domyoji Tsukasa.

The series is based on the Japanese shoujo manga “Hana Yori Dango” (Boys Before Flowers) by Kamio Yoko.

That’s the description from the site. So far, it seems pretty good, though some parts are really funny, while others make me want to bang my forehead against a wall (mainly in the scenes with her family). I just finished episode three, so it probably gets better soon.

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)
