I love school. I love our abilities to learn about most anything we want and, thus, get a good job we enjoy from it.
I hate tests. Lol.
Finals have been the only things on my mind recently.
If not studying this weekend, I've felt horrible for not looking over what needs to be for memory refreshors.
Drama, drama, drama indeed.
I love every one of you, lol. It's crazy how much crap happens with us, but I kinda like it. With each explosion of emotions, we grow closer. It may not seem apparent, but I've seen it happen in my absence from fighting.
My absence from fighting ... it's been nice.
Just sitting back and watching.
There are some definite bitches in our clique; good thing we only deal with them at lunch, rehearsals and in Gold Voices.
Well, most of us, anyway.
I'm certainly glad I don't have to spend all my time with them. If I did, I'd probably turn into one of them, just as happened with them and previous bitches.
Bitches ... what a vague term.
What I mean by bitches in this sense is they're ALWAYS sarcastically passive-aggressive, only not so passive. They're horribly opinionated, and they speak out all the time, completely disregarding others' emotions and/or possible reactions.
They're perfect for eachother, ne vrais pas? =P
Wow, French sucks when not in the classroom setting. I'm learning pretty well, and I can practice as much as I want, as quickly as I want, but I just don't get the same depth to it. If I can't take French III in a regular class next year due to (fucking retarded) scheduling problems, then I'm just gonna say screw it, and I'll continue my studies in college.
I'm really curious as to what will happen with me next year. The classes I want to take are as follows: AP Government, Calculus, Anatomy, French III, Gold Voices, Psychology, Journalistic English 12, Off-Campus Fitness and Economics.
Of those, the ones I need to take are AP Government, Off-Campus Fitness, Economics, and some english class.
( Well, english classes are screwed up right now.Collapse )
As for my other classes, I can't afford all that time, which is terribly unfortunate. I'm thinking the first I'd drop would be Psych, then either Anatomy or Calc. I hope I won't have to drop more than two classes.
Then there's the whole drama officer thing. I really really want to be one, but if I take all these classes and stay an editor of the paper, I don't know if I'll be able to.
Now that I think of it, I may want to just quit the paper allout.
But I'll cross that bridge when scheduling comes closer.
History consumes my everyday life just as Finals have been this week.
Same deal, if I'm not working on it, I feel guilty.
I love old fashioned donuts.
Our financial situation is really sucky right now.
Dad's retirement was taken away quite a while ago, which is ridiculous.
It really gets me, personally, because so much of my college money was stored away in there.
He's been working with airlines for over forty years, and fell out with downsizing. He's been screwing them right back by staying home on disability due to his accident a few years ago, and still getting paid. Recently, due to the downsizing, he's been getting paid more than if he were working. But, that's going to stop. Soon.
The worst part, we can't sue for what happened. We get absolutely nothing.
Our income is about to be based solely on how much Mom works, which will unfortunately have to be a lot.
Maybe we shouldn't have gotten the pool, lol.
Ah well, as Dad keeps telling me, it's nothing I need to worry about right now ... but ... I DO need to worry about how I'm going to go to college.
My plan right now is to go for massage therapy, then pay my way through school that way. Right now, meaning starting next semester, I'm gonna start scholarship apps.
Gabi and I tallied up how many volunteer hours we've gained over the years, and I don't know about her cuz I was in the bathroom, but I was really honest and went for every minimum (honest meaning I didn't count driving people around or opening doors for old ladies =P - and this isn't to say she wasn't either, just that I don't know) - and I've gotten shitloads. We figured it's about 340ish per show, and I've done 29(ish). Then, about 1000 hours per summer of volunteering at the VBGC. I did for five summers.
Well on my way.
Wow, I think that's about it for now.
I'll talk atcha later, LJ.
Keep it cool.
