Text me: I’ll over-analyze it. (via A Nice Ring to It)

I do this. ALL THE TIME, ahaha~ /suchaloser
Extremely relevant though~ haha~

Text me: I'll over-analyze it. "Hey." Not a particularly welcoming salutation. Not unfriendly, but no enthusiasm. It's firm. Finite. Is he mad? "Hey" This one's completely different. It's casual. The lack of punctuation says, "I'm on the go — Just didn't have time for that little dot!" If you find this analysis over-the-top and slightly nauseating, I'm wit … Read More

Romeo And Juliet

Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou Romeo~!
Aw shut thou mouth, tis but three in the morning, you barnacle boot face

I don’t know, but seriously. We’re reading Romeo and Juliet in English class. I love the play, I love pretty much all of his plays, it’s my teacher that I’m not so crazy about.
I mean, yeah, not a bad guy, but seriously. We had an 80 minute class, and read two pages of intro stuff for the play. Yeah discussion are meant for learning. But 80 minutes worth, and two pages read. It’s a waste of a class.

Business, we just took up stuff, and then the class ended. I think the teacher hates me now.. He never even looks my way *sad* ah well, I’m still getting 97 so whatever.
Biology, I have a quiz on Thursday. I have done like no work… I’m so smart. *sigh*
Technology, we have to figure out what to do for a final project, and I’m stuck. There’s only one criteria: make it out of wood.
I’m thinking of making a fancy band saw box, a tree that holds jewellery, or an organization box thing. I don’t know… more dilemmas….

I also need to find out where, when, who, what, blah, blah, blah, for my birthday party. My parents want me to have one, but then every idea I try, they shoot down. Their one option that they want is The Glaze Craze, which is where I had my 12th birthday and my sister had her 8th birthday. I think repetition is to their liking..Sigh… again

Talent Show on Thursday, during fifth period. YAY! No English *happy dance* I’m sorry, that class is way more boring than anything else in the world. Like, seriously.

Giving Up Is Not An Option

I have a Business test tomorrow, a Biology quiz on Thursday, and then next week, I have a Biology assignment due on Wednesday, and our Tech doll house project is due. Great.

My favourite time of the day these days is racing this kid to the bus after school… My friend told me his name… er… started with a C… ah well… either way, he’s about the only kid that always gets out of school the same time as I do and we like run for the bus. It’s also about the only time of the day that I actually get exercise… Sometimes, having a fear of packed buses is usful~

Report Cards are on Monday and the release of the seventh (FML) book of the House of Nights Series is coming out on Tuesday. Joy. I can’t wait to get The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong~ The last book to the trilogy… or is it… my friend said there’s going to be another one after that call the The Beckoning… if there is then that’s another ‘Joy’ moment. I should really stop buying books. Thank goodness there’s such thing as libraries…

I’m on the last Midnighters book, Blue Noon, and I just got The Van Alen Legacy, the fourth book to the Blue Bloods series, from the library… I seriously need some sort of restraint on books… seriously…

Currently: Tired… still… and all I did was run for the bus with the C kid…I’m totally out of shape

What a Wednesday

Okay, so nothing truely exciting happened, but it was still a Wednesday.

In the morning there was a fire drills, so we skipped about ten minutes of class, in my case it was business. Then in bio, we did a lesson and then homework.

I finally got some hours for mentoring, which I’m seriously happy about. I need like six more though or else I’ll be on probation for HMST. I’ll have to go again tomorrow and next week… I’ll have to go a lot more…
In tech, we’re done with our bandsaw boxes.

Here’s mine~

Cool eh? Now if you saw the other side, you’d see all the mistakes I made. Thank god it was on only one side and not both!

Last period I had to work with these idiots I know. One doesn’t talk. Like EVER. The other was rambling on how if you had imagination you couldn’t be logical. I wish I had a bow and arrow at that moment to shoot him. Then my last other group member sat there trying to prove that one of the characters, Simon, was pure and innocent and couldn’t do anything wrong, while I actually did all the work. Sigh. I hate my group…

My sister and dad went to the AGO on one of her trips. They said that the King Tut exhibit was totally bogus, because they didn’t ever have Tut there, just artifacts, nothing really interesting. I’m just glad it wasn’t me who payed $15 to see it… I, however, did pay $20 to go to the Body Worlds thing at the Science Center. All these tourist attractions trying to rip you off…

4 More Days

Four more days until March Break! Hoorah! I’m sorry, I just really don’t like school.

In bio, today, we started disecting pigs. I’m fine with it, I mean, they’re already dead, plus I don’t queasy easily, though the smell was to die for. Seriously, smell it and your nose will wrinkle with disgust and you’ll find yourself retreating from the stink. What’s worse, is that I had cut the pig and was pulling back the skin, when it snapped back, sending unidentifiable white liquid from the pig flying into my face, mainly my mouth. Yum… *goes to a bush to upchuck*

Other than that, it wasn’t too bad…

I have a business test tomorrow. I should be studying… But I REALLY don’t want to. I have this test to go through, and then a bio test on Friday, and then FREEDOM!!!

I also have a tech assignment, plus my bandsaw box thing… I’m almost done? Kind of? Aha~

So I finished Need by Carrie Jones today, and it was overall not too bad. Granted, it had pixies and were-wolves/eagles/tigers/bears. But at least there weren’t any vampires~~

Currently: Tech Assignment

Reading: Either Waiting for Normal, Alisson Rules, or Along for the Ride… We’ll see.

Course Selection!

So it’s that time of year when we have to choose what courses we want for next year. And it’s seriously giving me stress. In the HMST program (hate hate hate hate hate) we have to take chem and physics, math and advanced functions, and tech, plus the mandatory English, leaving us with only 2 electives. I’m thinking yearbook, and accounting, or maybe tech? Sigh… I am the most indecisive person on earth… the thing is, the courses we take next year, dictate what we can take next year. In other words (because of the program) people in HMST have hardly any choice to take math and science, since they’ll be like the only thing we have prerequisites for. Saddest part is: I know what I want to take for grade twelve, but unless I fail the set courses this year, I already have the prerequisites set. Sigh… again…

So today, the Olympic event consisted of Ski Jumping (love watching that), Curling (it’s slow, but intense), and I’m not sure what’s on now… I was watching the Ski Jumping, where someone jumped like 144m and no one was able to top it, and then Curling, I watched the game between Great Britain and the USA. I think Great Britain was winning when I left (those games take so long, and I can’t sit for that long, without like tapping my foot off so I had to leave…)
Currently, USA has obtained 21 medals, Germany has gotten 14, Norway has racked up 10, and Canada’s got 8. (Woot! We won Men’s Skeleton~ Yay Jon Montgomery!)

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.
