“Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.”

My Belief-O-Matic results are as follows:

I’d say that they are pretty accurate.  The test really made me think; I actually enjoyed it.

My spiritual type is “Questioning Believer – You have doubts about the particulars but not the Big Stuff (70/100)”


I have this gut feeling that school this week is gonna be a breeze.  I really hope I’m right.  I suppose I can handle four whole days of high school education...  At least it’s the education that's bothering me and not the social aspects.  I never thought that I’d ever need to apply myself to do well.  Also, I’ve never been so secure about my social “status” at school.  ...Perhaps intelligence stems from social inaptitude...

“I almost had a psychic girlfriend, but she left me before we met.”

^ the story of my life...

Well, I’m glad that stupid E.L.A. is over.  Now I can get back to gym class, Pre-Calc, and Spanish.  Not to mention History 154...

So, the semester's finally over.  It's about time.  Now my schedule goes from:

1Chemistry
2Chem Lab/Gym
3Pre-Calc
4aLunch
(at 10:00!)
4b 5aHistory 153
5bcSpanish 4
6Health 12
7Sociology 1510
8English 11

to:
1Chemistry
2Chem Lab/Gym
3Pre-Calc
4aLunch
(at 10:00!)
4b 5aHistory 154
5bcSpanish 4
6Parenting
7Psychology
8English 11

My what drastic changes! 

Anyway, I'm glad we've got a three-day weekend, but I have yet to finish my Sociology project.  As you may have noticed, I no longer take Sociology.  Fortunately, Mr. McF is kind enough to let us hand them in any time before the year's end.  I would start working now, but... y’know... three-day weekend...

Later

“All those who believe in psycho kinesis, raise my hand.”

So how was your day?  Mine was okay, I suppose.  I didn't ever get to the “final draft” part on the E.L.A., but that's okay.  Apparently, the rough draft can be graded instead for full credit.  It makes me wonder why anyone would actually do the final draft. 

Tomorrow is the Session II of the E.L.A.; <sarcasm>I'm stoked.</sarcasm>  At least I'm missing Spanish again.  I can't stand that class.  (Literally!  I couldn't stand if my life depended on it.  Mrs. Parsons puts me to sleep!)

Sorry about that crappy joke.  My creativity is still drained from that damned test.

For privacy purposes (parents) I'm gonna activate an IP blocker to keep this computer (the one I'm using, not the one you're using) from reaching this blog.  If you are blocked, please send me an e-mail, and I will try to fix the problem.  I'm not sure if Alltel uses the same IP address for multiple households.  I do know that my IP address changes every time I switch the DSL modem off and on again.

<edit date="1/25/2005" time="6:12 PM">I did get a C on the History 153 final.  A 75% to be precise.  It brought my grade down to an 88%.  My G.P.A. is shot to hell.</edit>

Happy birthday to me...

The people finally evacuated my house.  We had fun playing Halo 2 and Texas Hold'em all night.  Shane, of course, never played Halo 2.  When I finally got him to play, he realized that I was gonna smite his ass, so he suicided just to save face.  Y'know, "I woulda won if I was trying."  I won EVERY game of Halo 2 today (and most last night).  I guess that makes up for being the first one out of Texas Hold'em.  Brian couldn't make it, so he might come over tonight.  I would've had people come over tonight (because my birthday is tomorrow), but that would interfere with my present-opening.  A birthday is the only acceptable time to be greedy, and I'm taking advantage of it. : )

Well, I'm gonna get back to my JavaScript-ing...
Later.

I think I got a C.

That damned History 153 final was today.  It was probably the most difficult test I've ever taken.  Jamis and I were making fun of the others for studying so much, but I'm starting to wish I had joined them.  Essay #7 was bullshit, though.  "Compare and contrast John C. Calhoun's theory of nullification, the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions, and the theory of secession."

What the fuck?!

There were eight essays to do in three hours.  (That's 22½ minutes per essay.)

I know a C doesn't sound bad, but this is my only college course.  Now my GPA's shot to hell.  I'm just gonna go back to making minute, unnoticeable changes to this blog's template.  Coding helps me detach... (and it's safer than marijuana)

"Cigarettes killed my father... and raped my mother."

Wow, This is a unique site.  I always liked Family Guy, but this goes a little too far.

I feel so racist; I didn't do a single thing for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  The only time I've ever celebrated it was when it fell on my birthday.  Speaking of... 5 days... I can't wait!

Having a birthday so near Christmas kinda blows, but, what can you do?  I thought about doing the half-birthday thing (celebrate my birthday on July 23, as opposed to January 23, 6 months later), but it's just not the same.

I came up with an idea for fixing my browser detector, but no one really cares about that.  I made a blog to record the contents of my life, so I can look back in my later years and see where I went wrong; now I'm just using it for testing JavaScript and CSS...  I'm such a geek.  As I type this, I'm using the pure HTML editor because the WYSIWYG editor takes out my entities, which so far consist only of non-breaking spaces.

Maybe I should get back to my History 153 project...

Studying sucks

Jamis was kind enough to invite me to her lair for a bit of History 153 studying.  With the lowest grade in the class (of 6 students) I gladly accepted.  I learned that:

  • the Articles of Confederation < the Constitution
  • Dred Scott < a citizen
  • Indians < Dred Scott

Three hours was not enough time to finish half of the studying...  I really don't want to have to study on my own...  I'll probably vegetate in front of the television tonight.  I guess I could do my Pre-Calc homework... maybe finish that Dred Scott worksheet... make an outline of my 350-500 word Health 12 final essay...  UG!  I hate homework!

I can't believe Saturday is already over...

Wow, my first blog...

Well, here I am... This is a little awkward... I guess I just start...

It's Friday and the day is over. Yay! I still need to start my homework... but that can wait (probably until Sunday). My birthday is in 9 days. I would be excited, but I have mid-terms/finals scattered around that elusive Sunday, so I'm just ready for the month to be over.

This whole college thing is starting to stress me. Right now I need to plan out my entire life... I don't have that kind of time. I'm still planning a birthday party!

While I should be doing something, I'm just typing in a blog few people will read... I guess I'll do anything to avoid homework. Don't get me wrong, I've been wanting to start a journal for a while now, I've just been too lazy. Plus my parents claim that "there is no privacy in this house." Sure, whatever. "Touch my journal and die!" applies to them, too. Of course the whole online thing kinda removes privacy from my blog, but my parents will (hopefully) never know about this.
