My Junior Thesis is trying to kill me.
Today was the seniors last day. I am really happy for them, but it is tough. I'm going to miss a lot of them. It was a fun day, though, everyone was in a good mood and the seniors were blasting music on Main St and started chants like 'It's all over' and all that fun stuff. It was a lot more low key than last year, though. And the senior pranks this year sucked. They all parked their cars in the teacher parking, which is a great idea cause then the teachers would have no where to park, but they all either got towed or the cops made them move. Last year, my friends older brother, A-Nuts, ran down Main St in a thong on the second to last day. It was so funny. Yesterday, a bunch of seniors did that again, but it wasn't as funny. It was a planned thing, and everyone was there to watch, as opposed to last year which was sort of spontaneous and a lot funnier because no one expected it.
I need a haircut.
I have a splitting head ache. I hate this weather. It is hot and sticky outside, and it has been raining on and off. I had a bio test today, and I actually think I did pretty good. Stupid pundit squares and what not.
So I finally got the LJ Updating program set up again. I don't have a whole lot to say right now... I went to Best Buy this morning and bought the Jet CD and Blue Collared Comedy on DVD. Good shit.
So my livejournal updating program thing isn't working and I hate updating through the website... Oh well.
No ones online and my parents won't take me to a friends house. Rescue me from boredom. I really don't want to watch TV or play PS2. IM me at hpymeal88!
In other related news, my left is eye really hurt today so I took my contact out and now it hurts more. It blows.
I guess it is a good idea to buddy up with some teachers. Mr Iboketi is my history teacher and he is awesome. He is from Nigeria and always threatens to lay a smack down on you. Whenever I see him I always say "hi" and always ask hows it going and am generally nice to him. Sometimes he can be a bitch and a half but I still act nice towards him.
It all paid off today when on a big essay he totally ripped it apart but still gave me a B+. He was like, "This is very well written, but you need to support all your claims and go more in depth. The paper was very superficial." Looking at just the comments I was think that this was maybe a C or C+, but nope, he shocked me and gave me a B+ on it.
Sucking up does pay off!
Last night I didn't do my french homework. I know, I know, I am such a rebel. Then this morning in class my teacher collects and I told him that I forgot it, and that I had been spending a lot of time studying for English and he basically said "That's fine, but be sure to get it to me tomorrow." That was no problem, and I told him that. Then when I get home I was talking to my mom and she asked if I did my french homework that was due today. I told her the same thing I told him, and then she goes on to say that he called home and told her that I didn't do it.
I don't think I have had a teacher call home because I didn't homework since 6th grade, and that was when I didn't do any homework for close to two weeks. I miss my first assignment of the year and he calls home, and we are in 10th grade? That just strikes me as a little strange.
In related news my mom is making her show me my homework when its done so she knows I do it. What is this?????
My English teacher wants us to memorize Macbeth's soliloquy, all 31 lines of it, and I am just getting started and this is some really hard shift. She's had us memorize other parts before and I flunked all those and still got a B+, so if I flunk this it can't hurt me too much, right?
Saturdays are so incredibly nice because I get to sleep in until noon, and recover from the stress and fatigue of a week of school. I also get to watch some college football, hangout with friends, and if I feel inclined, do some work. Today I watched my Michigan State Spartans get their asses handed to them by my dads University of Wisconsin Badgers, the Bruins win to become the best team in the NHL, and I got some work done for Mock Trials. I headed over to Gaby's house and we worked together on a direct examination. If I get this role, this year, it will be really nice.
I hate the fact, though, that everything involving school now has the added pressure of colleges looking at it. If I do bad in a class, it will be on my transcript, if I don't do excellent, it could keep me out of a school I really like. Everything I do will effect college, which effects the rest of my life. It sucks.
Today all my teachers, except Mr Hubacker (French), gave me my grades. B+ in english, B in history, C in Bio and C+ in math. Math really pisses me off because the teacher goes "You have a 79.3 as your overall average, and if it were a 79.5 or higher I would of rounded it up to an 80 or a B-." Then I asked if I did test corrections for a test we got back today and gave them to her before the end of school if she could give me .2 points and she goes "What do I look like, Goodwill?"
I think that it is so stupid she wouldn't give me .2 points. If I got a B- in that, coupled with the B+ and B in english and math, and possibly a B in french than I would have a great report card. But no, she has to be a bitch. Oh well... someone in the class said "Maybe for christmas we can get Ms Lichtmen (the teacher) a car bomb."
So this is journal version 3.3 for me, which means third attempt on this third journal. I know, it is complicated. I basically started over because I hadn't updated in so long and I wanted to change what this journal deals with. Before, my journal was just a list of my daily events, and now I plan on using it for what it was meant to be used as, a place to rant and rave but also to talk about the good things. So without further ado, I present...
Happymeal, Version 3.3
