Do you need to vent about a bad day in school. Need to tell about a good day? Well step right up, and hang out here on SPPF with your friends and here about school all over the world.

As I've said in that back to school thread, I recently moved to America from New Zealand and sarted school two days ago. Found out today that I won't have to come in at 7:30 in the morning tomorrow, due to me have a "free" period in my schedule on Thursdays, so quarter to 9 instead. Was pretty stoked about this until I was informed that at 8:00 I have a doctors appointment to get all the vacanations schools in Connecticut require you to have, so no sleep in tomorrow :(

I just got home from class, it wasn't bad. But in my Health class, oh dear God ... someone had the worst BO in the world, and it filled up the entire classroom. Not fun when college courses are a minimum of an hour and a half.

I was literally gagging. It was the type of BO that burns your nostrils and throat and you can't even try breathing through your shirt because the smell goes through. Ugh.

Seventh Grade is okay, I guess, but 5th and 6th were way better xD.

My English teacher BORES ME TO DEATH. half his class is sleeping the whole time, and he doesn't notice. I never listen, anyway. That's when I play around with my iPad

My Science teacher freaks me out. The rest of my class is scared of her, too. Don't make me tell you guise how >.<

I'm in my last year of Uni and still taking a biology 101 course since I transferred in and we're required to take 2 sciences and a lab. Needless to say my class is mostly made up of freshman and sophomores. I also have the pleasure of having the same bio period as a few bible-huggers who feel the need to argue against evolution not even 2 full weeks into the course. Too bad our teacher is really friendly so I don't get the pleasure of hearing him laying the smack down.

Third day of 10th today. Looks pretty laid-back to me. AP classes are nice, you don't have to do all those stupid projects and work with cardboard paper and glue. I have band 1st hour and we have to march for half an hour in the cold. Only thing I can complain about is that I have 4th hour lunch (which is freshman lunch) because my schedule is full. Since I'm in 10th, I can walk home or whatever for lunch, which is awesome since I live fairly close.

I'm going to post what I posted in the "Are you ready to go back to school" thread.

Day 1:
Just got back from school. It was the most boring day ever, what with all of this orientation crap. Twice as many rules then before too. And at the end of the day I already have homework. Sigh.
Day 2:
Came home from day 2, better than yesterday, at least. But now I have 3 homework assignments total, two from today and one from yesterday. Time to do my work. :(

I'll probably post what goes on tomorrow too.

My first day of school was a lot of fun, seeing old friends, getting info. about my classes, etc. etc. We really didn't do anything, except for Pre-Calc. we took notes on Section 1-1 of our book, which is just Functions. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

Today was a lot more fun. I had Study Hall first hour, so I took that to get ahead on my math homework that we were assigned that day. Choir was great, we did Range Checks, I'm the only bass in my class. We also got our music for Homecoming Coronation. We're singing Smile by Uncle Kracker and The Way You Make Me Feel by Micheal Jackson, which is A TON of fun. I get the male solo, because the two other guys can't sing that low, which is awesome. In Creative Writing we watched the Monty Python sketch Dead Parrot and dissected why that was a great Duologue Scene to pieces. In Mystery and Detective Lit. we started reading The Murders in The Rue Morgue by Edgar Allen Poe, which I've read before. We were assigned study questions and I've answered the first two. They take up the majority of three pages in my notebook already :x. In Pre-Calc. we had a sub and an assignment that I finished in class. College World History is awesome! We are covering all history up to the Medieval Ages. We were discussing the creation of the universe and a theory that there may be a higher power or supreme intelligence. And I had another Study Hall, but tomorrow I start my Career-Link at the local Elementary School.

I'm have at least one friend that sits close to me in every class, so it's nice. We also have a new Foreign-Exchange Student from Germany this year. She's really cool, although really quiet. I'm thinking about inviting her to my party that I'm having next week.

Homework tonight is light, I only have the Study Questions from Mystery and Detective Lit. and I am going to write a bit in my Creative Writing notebook, I had a really funny conversation with myself in my head that would be great as a screenplay. I also have to call the Community College to take my Minnesota Accuplacer test, so I can stay in College World History. It's just the reading section, and that's only like 20 questions and I hear it takes only like a half hour to finish.

I can't spare $150 but I can offer some direction. I'm assuming you're a college student? Check with your bookstore and see what they offer. Mine and many other universities and even smaller colleges offer the whole student office suite for 25 bucks (to students). You can also download the trial if you need a little time and there are some other methods. Many universities also offer remote software licenses. For instance I can login to my universities remote system and use the entire Adobe CD3 suite over the internet(CS5 would be nice but eh). So maybe check and see if you have something like that.

Well, today I took a quiz in Math II over my homework that I thought I did very well on, but it turned out I missed 2 out of 5 on it D: Thankfully, my teacher may not count it, because we are allowed to opt out of one homework assignment every 9 weeks. She's a kind lady :)

Drawing I was fantastic today! I worked with China markers, professional crayons, and watercolor to create un tres beau illustration! :D At least, in my opinion that is...

Chemistry = kill me!!! My teacher literally tried to kill us with boredom (not really). She took forever to explain everything, and since our classes aren't divided into advanced and regular, I'm forced to go the sluggish pace with all the other average intelligence :P

Comp 2 was quite interesting, as it was my first time working with white charcoal. We're working on pieces for a gallery in October called, "Spiders, Snakes, and Snails (oh my!)."

I can't wait for tomorrow! French II and Painting I = best day ever!! :D

Anyway yesterday was my first day of school, and also my first day of high school. High school seems alright... so far. I don't like being in honors classes because I'm really not that smart. But being in normal classes are so boring. Yesterday in Biology we jumped right into the Biology stuff, but today in Spanish we still did 'get to know each other' activities.

Well, I didn't get the sheet with what assignments we were supposed to do over the summer for AP Calculus, for one reason or another, so I had to do it all in one night.

Luckily, it wasn't that hard for me, and somehow I didn't feel tired at all the next day.

But it still kinda upsets me that my school focuses more on mediocre sports teams (they can't even make it to state level) than on providing a better curriculum (only 4 AP classes? Seriously?). At least they're actually making steps to prepare students for the ACT (new timed tests at an avg. of one minute per question).

There was also supposed to be a new hallway added in, but the contractors don't have a construction permit. At the earliest, that new hallway won't be added in until mid-October. So I have to share lockers until then. >_<

Today was my sixth day of school. I take Drama, Advisory (which is random and we mostly is filler), Geometry, Lunch, Biology, and Yearbook. I seem to be getting the hang of high school by this point.

Homework seems surprisingly forgiving today. Had none for drama, only a margin for Geometry, but three pages for Biology. Couldn't even get a turn to take a picture in yearbook...

Something I noticed that was someone in yearbook got Dress Coded' (went against it), but after the day, when I did my youth group at church, I don't think Dress Code really exists. I think it's because I go to a Charter School, while everyone else goes to other random High Schools and don't really have dress codes.

Yesterday was my last day at college for a week. It was pretty good, I'm usually quiet if it's a large group of people I don't know but everybody on my course is really nice and we went to the pub in our break and there was this feeling of everybody looking out for each other that you don't really get at high school.

Obviously I was really nervous because all my friends were at my old school/the town where I lived and the only people I know who go to my college have their classes two of the three days that I'm not there. But at least it looks my course is gonna be a breeze, and I get paid like £70 a fortnight just for attending so it's not bad. c:

I think my timetable this year is better then last, my free periods are more evenly spaced, so I have only one day in two weeks with no frees.

But the school rules state that even if you have no 1st lesson you still have to be in school, you only get to sleep in if you have no 1st and 2nd lesson, which of course I never have.

And the fact that if I could drop chemistry (which I can't, because it's important and I'm doing well in it), my timetable would go from leaving early twice every two weeks to instead having three free afternoons, two free mornings and one whole free day every two weeks. Why must I be taunted this way?

(I go to a 6th form colledge, btw. I just refer to it as school.)

First day back on campus (for classes) was yesterday. Only two classes on Wednesday: Lighting Design 3 and Sound Design 2, my two favorite. They re-vamped the Sound Lab over Summer, so we have new Macs and other spiffy things.
Don't have to be back for classes until Monday, I have Photoshop for Designers in the afternoon.

My other two classes don't have fixed times, one being an online class and the other being my production work. I have to go to rehearsals a couple times this week for Designer Runs.. but I have some more paperwork and things to work on before we get into the theatre for dress rehearsals.

Coursework is pretty easy this year, only 20 credit hours. It's good to be a Senior.

Just got back from Day 3, it was a little better. In math, we finally got to doing some math, we did some review equations I could probably do in my head. The total of homework assignments this year has now risen to seven. And I will repeat, this is only my third day. It seems now that English is pretty much all about homework as I have gotten a homework assignment in that class every day so far. Today I got two from that class.

Day 3 turned out to be pretty awesome, but not that exciting.

My yearbook team continued brainstorming "spin-offs" for the yearbook themes. What we had to do was come up with ways that the two themes we picked relate to several groups (senior/junior/sophomore/freshman, sports teams, clubs, NHS, etc.) Our two themes are "Look at Me Now" and "Carpe Diem", and once we're done with the brainstorming, we have to vote on which theme to use. And yes, the yearbook-making process is year-round. There are several events to include over the course of the school year. Not to mention several pages to design.

Nothing else out of the ordinary, other than an abortion debate I participated in after school, and that we watched a short clip from The Exorcism of Emily Rose in Psych class.

Tuesday in World: "Okay, so I pushed everything back a day... don't forget about the Rome/Han/Gupta chart, due on Friday now... And that doesn't mean that I want you to put it off tonight, get it?"
Me: "Okay, so, I'll do that when I get home... Best to get it out of the way."
Today: "Remember, Rome/Han/Gupta is due tomorrow!"
Me: "God damn it sucks. Why did I wait till today to do it? Crap!- Marching band practice tonight... I'll never get it done. Oh well, might as well do two of the 3 empires..."

Also, Tuesday was crappy. The band director had to have me and the other section leader run our ideas for a section shirt by him. (Something about the band's integrity being gone if it's inappropriate, the shirt.) Anyhow, our only idea that wasn't sexual (it's the saxophone section, and we always do puns. What other words can you honestly replace with sax?)and was kind of cool was that we'd edit the cover of Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols to say Sax Pistols, and plaster it to a shirt. He told us it was too sexual.
Now we don't have a shirt.

Thats pretty good, whenever a firealarm is ringing in my school, someone is expelled due to previous amounts of firealarms :D. If your 5 minute speaking test presentation in spanish is in at least one weeks time, it gives you a lot of time for revision which is all good :) My first day, I walked into the front gates of school watching the first years punch each other, the second years passing a cigarette around each other, my year passing a can of largar around and the teachers sitting in the dinner centre smoking and drinking coffee while slatting the students.

Well schools been good so far. Well, ok. Some parts are good. Some are bad. That's Grade 8 for ya I guess... I think?

My teachers are good, for the most part. My LA teacher looks like she's 17, lol xD She gets pretty mad easily though. But it's not too mad. My Math and Science teacher (same person) is pretty good. He doesn't really get mad, and when he does it's not like a crazy spaz attack. He gives quite a bit of homework though. Plus I dislike the seating arrangement we have in his class. Not near any friends -_- Other than that, it's ok.
My gym teacher is nice. There's nothing mean about him. He's not like 'DROP AND GIVE ME TWENTY!!'. He's a nice guy. I like him.
My Religion teacher is nice also. She really doesn't give much homework, and we haven't done any actual work in class so far :D
My Band teacher is a nice guy. He's got a rather odd, but funny sense of humor. He tells funny stories too. My family knew him a bit outside of school too.
My Info Pro Teacher... -_- I don't like this guy. (BTW, Info Pro is like computer class if you don't know) He's rather strict. I got in trouble for changing the background on my school email account to purple, lol xD He does give a decent amount of free time, though. That's like the only good thing. Maybe I dislike him so much because I just dislike him telling me the 'proper' way to type on a computer.
And well that's it for teachers. My school is pretty cool, for a school.

Helping my son with an AP class... Anybody know what remote sensing is?

From a geographical stand-point I know a little. It's the surveying via satellites which can survey in one of two ways, active scanning or passive. Passive is taking in info such radiations which are emitted where as active you're sending out signals to that bounce back like radar.

2 page essay

You're going to love university.

e: Last term I had seven exams, seven full Java programs each spanning 100+ lines and requiring at least three days each of work, and a 15-page research paper on the political economy that required a good week of research.

And this term's basically going to be the exams and the research paper, three times over.

Rough calculation, but today was something like the 140th day of school for me this year due to me being in Australia. It also means that I've only got another three months - less than, actually - left in Year 11 and then my final year of school awaits, which is quite scary. The Year 12's have been sitting their trial exams and it's really quite nerve-wracking seeing them cram and be all anxious and whatnot; it makes me quite fearful for next year. I'm in IB, and it's tough, but it's only going to get tougher.

O: I just started the IB. It seems okay now, but I can see how there's going to be a major workload soon. And all our final year students ended up hating the IB by the time they were done. >.<

The maths departments has some new chairs. They're comfortable, they're sturdy, they're clean, they're just the right height and they're apparently good for your posture. The problem is the design.

They're bright blue and look like they're scaled up from nursery chairs. If you were to walk in and see a class sitting in them, you'd wonder if they're allowed to use scissors.

Also the head of sixth form spent all assembally rambling on about his bloody shed again. And he made an analogy for a sucessful school year that was somewhat derailed by the sun not being an overly desirable destination. What with the burning and everything.

Hah, heads of sixth form are all unique and yet all the same in that once you've had a week's worth of assemblies with them, their speeches are utterly predictable. Mine used to spend each assembly complaining about Republican Americans. In a UK School.

My final year of university starts in October, and it can mean only one thing: final exams that define my degree grade and therefore the unfolding of my life path Dozens and dozens of 21st birthdays. 21 is seen as the "big birthday", and as such attendance if you get an invite is pretty much compulsory. The first of these involves traipsing 250 miles down the country and possibly spending the night with my heavily pregnant sister-in-law, who probably doesn't want a sofa-surfer while she's waiting for her life to turn upside-down with her first child due. Hey ho, at least it'll be a nice party and a chance to catch up with the uni crowd.

Well, Day 4, the last day of the week, is finally here. I have gym in sixth period, so I'm pretty much exhausted right now. I have more math homework, numbers 14-52 all. But, they're all pretty simple problems, so no complaints. Science was cool. In Health class, we finally got to use the school's new Window 7 computers. They're awesome because they used to have these old XPs from '02 that 15% of the time didn't even turn on, so I'm happy. In English, we finally had a class where we didn't have any homework assigned. Overall, the day was decent enough.

Today was pretty good actually, chemistry I felt really great because I got a B in it and I had to teach the people beside me about Ionic Bonding. Then in English which was awful with the teacher at the time, he had us watch the schools version of the play 'An Inspector Calls', which was twenty minutes of girls giggling and the other english teacher making an idiot of himself but being hilarious at the same time, going as far as to create an old british accent. Spanish was boring but it is much better than p.e which I heard was cross country-Win!. Spanish we got more homework than actual work done and the staff didn't seem to know what they were doing. In maths, the teacher kinda told someone off but laughed at them at the same time; he was doing a practise paper and was saying one of the questions to himself and working it out and she asked the boy next to him who he is talking to and said that she knows he is only talking to himself about the maths but that is even weirder and told him to get on with it. Then he put his head towards the work, angrilly ignoring everyone and doing it and the teacher told him to not look at her and everyone else as if he wants to kill them all. The sad thing is, he probably could and she would be his first victim. I.C.T, the teacher has had four months to mark our work, we are the last year and he always spends most work on them and he doesn't even know who we are or what we are doing. He started new things with us despite telling us that we will start where we left off last year. Someone asked if everything we did last year was pretty much pointless and the teacher said probably, which angered me and basically, if I was told what asignments to do and given the instructions like the exact same tests in the past three years, I would do it myself. Overall though it was a good day as I think I am actually becoming popular in my class and people kept on following me, wanting to talk about stuff. Win! And I have never seen or spoken to the idiots from the bottom sets who have been doing 'B Skills' for the past three years. This is where those who cannot do a second language do this to learn how to draw shapes for help with maths, read basic books for english and draw organs in the body for science. And they think they are better than everyone even though they have done so much alcohol and drugs by even now before 18, they will probably die before the age of 35. Even though I have many tests and work ahead of me in the next two weeks, school life is really good and I really don't learn much, just have a laugh which is all good :D

I don't mind having to Pep Band, but all band members must do marching band. It's absolutely retarded.

I immidiately jumped at the offer of the possibility of finally being able to talk to people at school. Got down there and within 2 minutes everyone was passing around joints.

Well, I've been unloaded upon with homework from every class so far. I have to do a project and worksheets for Spanish that are due on Monday. For English 3 AP, I have to read 2 more chapters of this book we're reading, The Scarlet Letter; read a selection in the textbook, and answer the accompanying questions and fill in the chart for said selection. I also have to study another book I read over the summer for a test on Monday in the same class. Other things to do include: worksheet for Bio, icon design for Graphic Design, textbook work for Geometry, and a typed notebook title page for USH.

I'm so glad for having Block Schedule at my school. Periods 1, 3, & 5 on Purple days and Periods 2, 4, & 6 on Gold (or is it the other way around?). Makes things so much easier for me.

My sophomore year at university has been a busy one, for sure. I work about 13 hours a week (which may not seem like a lot, but on top of 17 credit hours, it can be). It seems always have Ochem homework to do, or a Bio lab report, or a reading for Film to do. I'm also apart of my university's program board and the medical student association. But I don't mind being so busy, honestly.
Having a tight schedule spurs me to get my work done on time. I think all the free time I had in the past was detrimental to me.

4100 in the US print to be exact but regardless it's still far from impossible.



I did, too, but it's hardly the longest of the series. You'd have to really focus to complete the series within a week, and reap the full benefits of the story.

The Deathly Hallows may not be the longest but it certainly wasn't the shortest, in fact it was the second longest behind the Order of the Phoenix. You must also remember 1, 2, and 3 were much shorter in comparison to the other 4. Those together probably equal just a little over the amount of pages in The Order of the Phoenix. So its kind of like reading 5 equal sized books.

Shall we do some hypotheticals? Say you did want to finish the book in a week (assuming a week is 7 days to everyone here). How much of that week would you have to devote to reading in order to do so? Well like I said, there are 4100 total pages in entire series in the US print. In 7 days we have 168 hours. Lets assume everyone gets a solid 8 hours of sleep that's 56 hours right off the bat that we don't have to dedicate to reading. Now lets say we spent 5 total hours a day eating, showering, dressing, taking potty/snack breaks. That's another 35 hours we don't have dedicated to reading. That leaves us with 77 hours or 11 hours a day to read. That's 53 pages per hour. That is an easy task. I don't consider myself a fast reader by any means, in fact I think I'm a little slow but yet I average about 50-60 pages per hour.

I start college tomorrow, but had a taster last Tuesday. It's pretty good sar far, alot diffrent from school. No uniform, calling teachers by the first name, not the last. All I dislike is the odd timetable, theres no set style to it, with lessons on the SAME DAY overlapping eachother.

I don't know any personally, but my brother told me that his grade 10 science teacher found the phone of one of his female students that had been left at school, so he bought her a new one and added his number to it. O.O

I just remembered a funny story from last week. Actually not funny, but tragic.


Hey, there. Okay. I'm a huge fan of history and, compared to most teenagers and many adults, am very proficient in geography. So here's my tale of idiocy and stupidity.

I go to a Magnet school and I take both AP Human Geography and AP US History. During my APHG class last week we were discussing different types of maps. And at one point my teacher mentioned Mt. Everest. He basically asked "Ya'll remember where Mt. Everest is, right?" No one, but I and few others said Nepal. Others said China and India. Considering that Nepal isn't that well known of a country it's an honest mistake, but the story gets even worse.

One girl said, "It's in Nepal? It's not in the United States. I didn't know that." Can you believe that? She thought a mountain on the other side of the world was in the US. The US! Although my teacher gently corrected her I'm pretty sure he wanted to slap her or something. My god! The US!

Thanks for listening. *facepalm*

It's not just Americans.

My french teacher from four years (Year 9, so 13-14 year olds) ago once derailed an entire lesson into geography so he could teach a particularly daft girl:

A) The difference between the UK, Great Britain, The British isles and England.
B) That yes, the UK is that island "shaped like a dinosaur"
C) No, China is not the capital of Japan
D) No, the language of Japan is not japanish.

I will remember that lesson for the rest of my life. Twas Comedy gold.

I tend to take the intelligence of my peers for granted, since I've been around gifted kids since 5th grade.

One of my friends moved to New Brunswick before high school. Shortly after he was moved into 10th grade because he was smarter than anybody there. He told me that during geography class, many students couldn't name all of the continents and some couldn't even name one. In math, some girl didn't know the formula for the area of a rectangle.

I had a creepy teacher like that in 7th grade. We always joked that he graded the girls based on their cup size. But, to be honest, I wouldn't be that surprised if it was partially true.
Needless to say, we were all dismayed when he switched to teaching 8th grade our 8th grade year and then later moved up to the high school with us.

I knew a few idiots like this. I wish I could remember some of the things these people thought, but I did too good of a job blocking high school from my memory.

Though I remember my brother complaining that one of his teaches insisted Lake Michigan had shores in Canada. Sometimes, it's no wonder students are so ill-informed when people like that are teaching.

Sadly, I'm not surprised people can't name the continents. One teacher I had made us memorize all 50 states of the country, you wouldn't believe how many complaints went around about this. And we were in 9th grade, really not all that unreasonable to expect 14 year olds to know the states.

Makes me glad to live in Canada; only 10 provinces and 3 territories. I did memorize the states and their capitals, though. Later I would do the same with the countries of the world, and that automatically made me my Grade 9 geography teacher's favourite. :)

Today I only have two out of 5 lessons. :D

...and those lessons are in almost the worst place possible. Every silver lining...

Edit: Ugh, it's too early in the morning, in the week and in my life to deal with this.

As it turns out, two people who were in my class during secondary school have been killed in a car accident in which they were passengers. They were in the majority of my classes for 5 years and they were pretty close to my age. Four other passengers are in hospital and the driver was in custody. I knew them too, althuogh not as well. Everyone seems pretty shook up.

But the problem is, I'm just not sympathetic. The two people were not nice to me. One had ADHD, was generally unpleasant, was disruptive and was expelled towards the end of y11 for threatening someone 5 years younger then him with a knife. The other was generally violent, loud, and had a habit of throwing heavy or sharp objects across the room. I'd personally predicted several years ago that they would die young. Several people had seen the group they were with driving around with and made similar, more accurate and more recent predictions. It wasn't exactly their fault, but they probably should have seen it coming. I've already had a rather awkward conversation with the women who was the year manager when I was in secondary school, who would have had to deal with all the things they did, where we both had to scoot around the fact I didn't like them in the slightest.

Now, of course, this is a horrible way of thinking, no one should die so young, even if it's their own fault. It's a terrible tragic accident that's happened to someone I know well, but the fact of the matter is it's how I feel.

I don't feel bad about them dieing, but I feel pretty horrible about not feeling bad. I'm just confused.

Reading test? o.O" And excuse my poor knowledge of the imperial measurement system, but isn't a mile only 1600 m, and hence a quarter of a mile only 400 m? That's only a minute of running...

Well I think school's finally beginning to wind down for the term for me. At least for now. The Year 12's are currently sitting their trials so most of the teacher's attention have shifted towards them, but I've still got a couple of tests in the next two weeks before the end of term, as well as some assignments, but it's slowing down at last.

This is college I'm assuming? I had the same deal with my web development course but instead of OSX and Photoshop it was HTML which I already knew all the stuff she had outlined from a computer science course so I didn't go to class for 3 weeks. I miss those semesters.


As for PE in high school, I really disliked it as well. Not because I'm lazy or anything, hell I was on the varsity soccer team from my freshman year but anyways, I disliked it because it really served no purpose. We did various little "games" which taught nothing, a few interesting activities like archery, some line dancing and that's about it. The rest of the time(which was 90% of the time) it was basically a free period where you couldn't be sitting down and the weight room was off limits. I would have much preferred learning something about being fit rather than just being babysat for a period. Or at least have a little more freedom to either go out to the track or to the weight room.

Recruitment week started today, and I didn't know. So at the beginning of lunch I was told I was responsible for Reach for the Top. I spent my lunch trying to convince uninterested kids that some really nerdy trivia game/club is a lot of fun. :(

Also, I had drama first period and we went the first 40 minutes without a teacher. Turns out we had a supply and she was in the very next room the whole time.

As for PE, I'm so glad it's over. As a skinny, nerdy kid, PE was the bane of my existence. Some of the kids were major douches and were about as intelligent as bricks. For sex ed, some kid got 3/45 on his test, and that test involved things like, matching definitions, labeling diagrams, etc. Last year it pulled down my average even though I got a 90 in that course... :/

Had nothing for Drama, one two-page packet for Geometry, and 8 pages of Biology review. I seriously spent three hours on that Biology homework, and some of the stuff on their wasn't even in the book. I know I'm not the only person with this though, everyone who took Bio earlier warned us about it.

Today was alright, there was some confusion during English about the assignments, we had to run more laps, it's all good.

Everyone started talking about Lavender Town Syndrome thanks to me. -__-'

What the hell? I'm proud if I run an eight minute mile. My best mile was 9:53.
Anyway, just ran a half mile, and did a ton of pushups, I'm exhausted. I only have two homework assignments due tomorrow, so I guess that's about an hour and a half of work. Is Lavender Town Syndrome a fancy way of saying depression?

I suppose it could be. It's a creepypasta, though, one of the many Lavender Town ones.

I enjoy my college, I just dislike the pepole who call me ' an offensive ******' because I think that people should recieve the same kind of punishment, dispite their age. I don't mind sharing my opinion, or you having a different one, because I love a good debate, but don't personally attack me.

ehhhhh senior year in high school. I wanna get out of here. My school sucks, too many rules, too many students... And I'm taking an advanced placement course in music, but my teacher sucks and can't teach! I have to learn the whole book by myself I guess... :(

oh, and while the students in my gym class ran the mile, my teacher was driving around the track in a golf cart screaming at people. I hate those people, so I gave up.

My school had a rant at us as a 'welcome back' speech..... It wasn't pretty!
Now, our school uniforms have gone even more green, and our tights MUST be a certain amount of thickness.
We have now 2 hours a night of homework!O.o
Lunch break has got shorter......

*sigh* This year isn't looking to good, and since we are an all girls school, I have to put up with gossip and Facebook wars.... KILL ME NOW!!

Other than that I've had a great week!

My school is across town, so getting to school for me takes 40 minutes both ways, every day. If I have some EC's to take care of after school, it can take 50 minutes to get home via public transit.

New University student here.
Just had my induction day yesterday and it was so boring. Even the people there are no fun. I thought everyone would be really social but they were all a silent bunch. Hopefully things will get better in that sense.
University itself seems really fun. A lot more freedom and it's nothing like school. Can't wait to finally start my course!

I need to take Photoshop as part of my major requirement, except I taught myself years ago how to do a lot of stuff. Only thing is that I've been used to CS3 and the school computers have CS5. But, long story short, my copy of CS3 died, so now I have CS5 on my laptop to work with. Aww yeah.

I feel bad not paying attention in class though.. but my teacher knows I'm pretty familiar with it so.. he's not bothered by it.

Amen to that. This is why I hate taking higher mathematics, even though I'm planning on going into Computer Sciences. :/

In other news, I really hate my Anthropology class. I only took it to fill up my G.E.s and I'm already hoping I get finished soon.

I've been working on school for weeks. Alright for the most part, but I've had a few rough days.

I take an online Literature class, and I missed two weeks of homework because I didn't know how to operate the site. And yet, she still counts it against my grade.

I've worked my hide off to make 90+ grades, and I still have a C. -.-


I'm in my last year of Uni and still taking a biology 101 course since I transferred in and we're required to take 2 sciences and a lab. Needless to say my class is mostly made up of freshman and sophomores. I also have the pleasure of having the same bio period as a few bible-huggers who feel the need to argue against evolution not even 2 full weeks into the course. Too bad our teacher is really friendly so I don't get the pleasure of hearing him laying the smack down.

Try having a christian biologist as a professor. Not a day went by without a long rant against evolution.

I'm pretty open-minded on the subject of religion, but hearing the same rant for a year straight was painful.

And effective 6 hours ago, OSU's 2011-12 academic year has started. (And it's the last one using the quarter system!)

Over the course of my first class (Geography 450, "The Making of the Modern World") my professor managed to rant about Adderall and creationism being utterly stupid, and the readings are somewhat similar to those from a course I took in political theory last year that I loved almost as much as my skydiving course. Think I'm going to love working my *** off in this.

Currently waiting for my second class of the day (Political Science 544, "The Past, Present, and Future of War", taught by a professor named Bear Braumoeller) to start. Highlight of the syllabus easily has to be the foreign policy brief we have to prepare by the end of the quarter, or at least the description:


Each policy brief may be co-authored by up to three students in the same section. The author(s) must choose an international or civil war or genocide that is ongoing at the time of the class and do three things:

1. Give a brief description of the history of the conflict.
2. Give a brief causal analysis of the forces most responsible for the conflict.
3. In light of #2, suggest two or three measures that might be taken to end the conflict.

This will require a fair bit of research, so cite sources where relevant. I should note that objective analysis is central to this endeavor: regardless of political orientation, shrill, ideologically charged, finger-pointing screeds pertaining to wars that the United States is currently involved in, and based mainly on sixty-second soundbites from politicians and pundits, would be most unwise.

I'm about to be the biggest foreign policy wonk by the end of this year and it's not even going to be funny.

the hell? where do you go to school? i'm a biology major and while our profs rant a little bit about how they dont agree with some theories but i think theyd get thrown out of school if they did that.

reminds me of some chick at my friend's school who wanted to be a bio major but didnt believe in evolution and asked if she could just skip the parts to do with it.. and most bio majors have to take a class entirely based around the concept of evolution. or at least i did and her school did anyway.

I've been taught by a professor named Mantiger Vaughnbrigadier, so ha.

Just kidding! Your class here sounds really cool, though.



Driving to my school is a great experience. Every day I have to cross an expansive bridge, and its position over the water leads to various nice visual effects.

In the morning, there is always a lot of fog hovering over the water, so driving across this bridge is like driving through a cloud. You can't see the water below, you can't see very far into the sky above, and you can't see the end of the bridge or the mountains on the side in front of you. I suppose you could even say it's a decent example of what driving across a bridge of dimensions into the afterlife might feel like.

In the afternoon, the fog has disappeared and the sun reflects off the water, brightening up the entire valley and making everything look shiny and crystal clear. You can see boats and buoys in miniature on the surface of the water far below, and hills and mountains fading to a misty purple the further away on the horizon they are, and the church steeples and white brick faces of the school buildings rising out of the greenery across the river.

In the evening, the fog rolls in low over the water again, so your vision is limited to the dark gray bridge and the violet sky. Taillights create a pattern of dots set against the former, stars create a pattern of dots set against the latter, and the beacons on the bridge structures create a pattern of dots bringing them both together. It's pretty cool.

Driving across this bridge never fails to please. Pity I cross it at about 80 miles per hour.

Sooo I received a letter today from academic records and apparently I haven't been attending my Systems Analysis class all that much. Which I find odd because I've been to every lecture and have actually talked to the professor and participated. Hell the professor even knows me due to my taking his summer class and him personally calling me out during the final (was an online class where we met for the written final) to tell me that I did a great job in the course.

Soo year I shot him and e-mail to ask wtf was up.

I'm not sure which part you are addressing but I'll do my best to clear the fog.

Some teachers take attendance, some just during the first half of the semester. If during the beginning of the semester they notice students who have not dropped the course and still not coming to class they report it to academic records who then send out "warnings" about not attending class. I've been to every class but still somehow have been marked absent at least 3 times in the past 8 classes despite sitting right upfront and the teacher knowing who I am, and signing the attendance sheet every day.

If I could've done that during high school (or at least before my junior year)...

..but then I get to party and/or go clubbing with girls I like now.

(Or if I'm long-distance inclined I can travel hundreds of miles to see them using money I didn't have during my junior year.)

But I digress... I have a job interview with the office of US Senator Sherrod Brown on Monday that'll probably wind up taking up most of my free time for the rest of fall term and will be one hell of a resume booster if I get it.
