So I'm not going to use any fancy language or any funny stories, because I'm pissed and I don't feel like waltzing around the bush.
I am head of Promotions team in my school's Robotics, which means I design t-shirts, buttons, etc. MY domain. Ever since November I have asked that anyone who is interested in helping with a logo, send it by ME. No one did anything. Now its January and I want a logo to be done. Ms.M askes me to do something with the 4 horsemen of th apocolpyse, since our name is now Quantum Apoco-you get the idea. I do as she askes and I finished it about the first week of Feburary. After a few suggestions made my Nick, the president and Ms.M, I edit it and like it more. I'm quite satisfied by how it looked. For a few days, I noticed that some people on the team that I don't have a particularly like for have been rather nice, almost too much so, but I don't think about that. One of these people, he sha
Sooo...Winter Break starts next Monday and I am sooo ready for it! I say "so" a lot. How annoying. This week is going to last forever, and so far, it has been true.
This morning I go to the art room to ask for a pass so that I can get out of study hall and finish my wood block print, but my teacher did show up and I have 5 minutes to hussle back to study hall, not that she would notice me, Jasmine the Innocence Student, walking in late. So instead I did my Trig homework that was due the next block. Did I tell you I got my first F on an interim in all my years of school? I though my mother would kick my ass into next year, but she just shrugged. WTF. If any of my other sisters had gotten an F, not a 69 F, but a 44 F, she would have TORN their butts with the leather belt! But all I get is a shrug! I'm kind of irritated about that... You know, no one ever remembers me as a young child. I can ask them what was I like as a two year old and they wouldn't be able to say anything. I was forgotten basically. And they wonder why I'm so antisocial around them or form stran
Last night, my family and I went to the mall for Black Friday sales. Well, I was quite excited, since this was the first time I've ever been out on this day, plus, my sister and I would being getting a PS3 and a game or too.
So, the evening started off with a Wendy's combo #1 and a sprite. I ended up aborting the tomatoes, onions, and lettuce, since I'm still figuring how to eat properly with braces. Did I tell you I got braces? They suck big time. I am quite upset with myself that I laughed at my other sisters for having them. But anyway, after the ordeal, mom told me to go to GameStop to see if they were selling the system for less. That kind of ticked me off. I spent three hours online with a slow internet connection surfing the brandname sites for the Wii and PS3 deals when I could have being finishing my art portfolio for Tuesday. I don't know how much clearer "they are $299 everywhere for the system + one controller" can get.
I slip by a mass group of people to get across the food court to the store. The tiny places is packed. I've never seen the mall like this since...like I was 4.&nbs
Been a long time since I've posted again, but I really don't have anything new to talk about beside summer reading and college.
So, I've sent off my first college application to Queens University of Charlotte in NC. After all the headache of filling in the application and submitting work for their scholarships, I hope I get a decent amount of money to pay for tuition. I mean, its about $30,000 a year to go there, since it's a private college. Maybe I'll get crazy lucky and get a full scholarship
But of course, it most likely won't come my way.
And all of the scholarships I've applied for online have not responded, so I guess I didn't win any of those either...
Summer reading...for AP English 12, I had to read "Cry The Beloved Country" and "The Heart of Darkness". I read through most of the 2nd, but I just could not bring myself to finish reading it; which is say a lot of how much I loathe it, since I love reading. I just can't stand reading books about racial discrimination. You'd think that English teachers would pick out books young adult readers would actually like to read, you
Soo...today was the day of my AP United States History test...I mean, THE AP Test for it. We have to take an 80 questioned test and THEN a DBQ AND 2 FRE write essays!! Talk about OVERKILL. So, my brain has entered the DANGER.DANGER! zone and will end in a complete brain fart very soon. And is it lucky that for the next 2 weeks is the actual SOL testing? Hooray for me *dripping with sarcasm* Gosh I can't wait for next years smooth sailing because I'll be a SENIOR!!!! WOOOO!!
Only good news is that a got a 593/600 on my English Writing SOL that I took back in March and a 98% on my English Benchmark I took last month I think. I'm pretty proud of myself.
But really. I'm dreading the next few weeks... So... I'll surf for an MMO to play to relieve the stress!
Hey~ long time no blog!
I have been extremely busy with projects, papers, and homework from every single one of my classes. I have a permanent headache now that always looking for a comeback every second of the day. Well, I'll just tell you what's been going on in the meantime.
Well, we're getting up to SOL week now, and AP testing is next week in fact, darn. I'm taking my AP United States History test May 8 at 7:30am, which I am seriously having second thoughts about taking. After the rigorious writing and dates and names, I will epicly fail and waste my parents money. I don't even know why I decided to take APUSH in the first place! In Chemistry and Algebra 2, both teachers made just do JLabs, which are like previous SOL tests for practices that are on the web. Chemistry requires to do 6 different 40 questioned tests. Can you f-ing believe that? 240 questions on a subject I deeply hate!! I've already done the first 120, but still I have more crap to do, too ya know! Alg did not take too long,about 3 sets of 20, I dealt with that.
But my main source of anger is English. We have to do a rese
I've had a renewed passion for writing! Well, writing that's not graded. But yeah, anyways. So, lately, I've been feeling...different. Like things have begun to connect in ways they haven't before.
For example, my writing a novel. Even if I never publish, or even finish writing it, I feel a sense of accomplishment... Before, I'd never have been able to form the lengthy, detailed paragraphs that I wrote or typed. Just reading it makes me shiver with the emotions I had at the time. By the way, I've just started chapter 2, so I do not plan on finishing it anytime soon. I'd give a preview...but I'd rather not. I might change it soon...
Another difference is in the way I look at guys. Yeah yeah, I said something about that back in...December was it? But now that I'm totally, seriously, fully over Clinton, I've never really had a hard crush on anybody...Until a freshman came into the picture recently. I'd never noticed him in the hallways, but a few weeks ago I did. But it's not because he's Asian, but that is nice. But I had the courage, no, I dared to
No, no one in my family committed a crime or anything. Apparently, the Franklin house behind ours (we share a driveway with 3 other families, its the 3rd house behind us) caught on fire. Well, we didn't know that until we came from Papa John's and acrossed the bring and our street was blocked off with pink flairs and a cop car...So we drive around to go through the small neighboorhood to the other side, but that was also blocked with flares and car. My dad got out and the officer told us to park on the curve next to the car, and we hiked up the street, up the drive to our house. I felt so homeless for a sec. I would cry my eyes out if my house burned down, god, Im tearing up right now, even though Im sitting in it. The house that's burning is old, and it was a matter of time that it would catch flame. The people smoke some kinda of crap in there and have familial issues already. Then we live near woods...so our house could have caught fire too... God. Sorry for any prior promises I made people to be on today to game with, I might have to leave if the fire spreads so....
First day back to school...God. It lasted forever. Chemistry just about made me braindead trying to remember what we had done before break. Optical Lab...we had a review and I have a timed project to neutralize 10 spherocylinder lenses in 10 minutes. I stalled for like 20 minutes, until my teacher urged me to go ahead. I just barely completed it in exactly 10 minutes. APUSH...come ON! We had a DBQ to write (document-based question), and it's only the day after break. Torture! We got to work in partners, but I decided not to work with anybody, since I leave halfway through that class, and I didn't want to help write the first paragraph or so with someone, and then leave them to complete out assignment. It wouldn't have been fair. But Bethany pairs up with me, she is ridiculously smart. She gets perfects on her DBQs and I felt even worse about helping her write it, since I would pull down her grade greatly, I bet. So I'm actually doing my DBQ now for homework, because we took too much time analyzing the documents instead of writing. Algebra 2...was the O.K. Just the peach
Okay...so like, most of you know that by computer is a piece of crap. It's so sad. And. I am sick of downloading MMORPG's, getting all excited to play something new for a change, then get some stinking error that pretty much says "Sorry, your personal computer is a piece of shit. Get up dated, loser." So I am sick of it. I would like the help of you smart people who know about video cards and motherboards, because it makes no sense to me. So. I guess I have to put up my computer specs-things-dxdiag. Here: http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/8/16/170611/DxDiag.txt
With that done, can anyone tell me the least expensive graphics card and motherboard I need to buy? I at least want to tell my mom this, because she has no clue either, and I would very much like it for Christmas. Oh, and it has to have a Pixel Shader 2.0, whatever that means, because that is my BIGGEST issue with latest MMORPGs, like Atlantica and Shin Megami Tensei:Imagine. If you can help, thanks so much.
