October 7, 2008

Hey everyone! How’s it going? I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything, let alone knitting. I promise I’ll write more! (Hopefully daily). Life has been very stressful and intriguing this school year.

My classes:

1. Physics.

Oooh, what to say about Physics? Well, it’s a joke that’s for sure. I’m one of 3 juniors in this senior class. And I feel a smidgen smarter than a good chunk of the kids there.

2. Spanish 3.

Gah. Spanish. It’s one of my hardest classes since I have the hardest time trying to figure out what my teacher is saying. The only major rule in the class is that we aren’t allowed to speak English. Not one word.

3. Calculus.

Yay, another senior class. I’m one of two juniors, however. I find it also fairly easy. The good thing is that in Physics we are doing Calculus and in Calculus we seem to be doing Physics. Confusing right?

4. Chemistry.

As easy peasy as macaroni cheasy. I like the fact that we do interesting labs. But do we really have to spend two whole weeks on sig figs? Really? It’s so easy. Maybe that’s because I’ve already learned sigfigs in Physics but nonetheless.

5. English 3 Honors

Two words: Argumentative Paper. The first hurdle in graduation requirements to be met. I’m not really too concerned about writing a simple 5 -7 page paper. Other kids are actually woried about it. It’s really not that hard to write a paper.

6. AP US History

The stupidest class on the face of the earth. I hate that class. Hate. Hate. Hate. The teacher assigns us 6 chapters to read in 4 weeks and then we take a stupid unit test and since I didn’t have the time to finish the reading I failed the test. I failed. Even on the sad 60%=A scale. I still got an F. However this unit, I’m going to kick that unit test’s butt! I’m going to get a freaking 90%! The greatest part is that our teacher doesn’t really teach us. It’s more like, here are the chapters, read it and I won’t talk about the reading or the notes at all. Have fun. Thanks a lot. Whatever, it’s hopefully going to be survivable. I’ve got a plan for success.

This year, unlike other years, I’m joining like eighty-thousand clubs. On Mondays I have environmental club, on Thursdays I have book club, and hopefully I will be accepted into Torch Honor Society. Hopefully.

Knitting… The big question of the day. I’ve knitted a little bit in the last week, but otherwise not at all. Hopefully I will have time (probably during the weekends) to be able to knit more often. I might have some pictures up soon but I can’t make any promises.

That’s going to be it for today. Have a great day and Happy Knitting!
