KYAAA muuuch much MUCH better day today :)
COMC test was hard, but not freak-out-like-there's-no-tomorrow hard. And I think the essay will be okay. My teacher gave everyone a notecard that we can fill, front and back, with whatever we think will help us with the test. *Is going to condense the discussion questions since that's where the essay will probably come from--why give us the questions at all if she's not gonna test us on it?*
I laughed later cuz I told my friend (who's bad at test-taking) to ask God to take all his worries away (he's half Catholic half Jewish, so yeah), and I thought, If he gets his test back and he didn't fail, I'm gonna say to him, "You trust me now, boy?! Praying works!"
We had an in-class essay in Global Studies, but it wasn't so hard *one-paragraph essay FTW* once I decided how to answer it.
I was kinda mad about Algebra 3, cuz we're doing this little mini-lab thing with scatter plots and I ended up doing almost all of the work... I don't wanna be mean, but I don't think my partner knew what she was doing and I wasn't about to explain it cuz if I did, I would get an attitude because I don't have the patience to explain things that I know backwards and forwards. Plus I forgot my book so I couldn't do homework in class (did it in my English teacher's class at lunch).
Since I'm going out of town, I got my homework for tomorrow for most of my classes with homework involved (Global Studies is not one of them, poo), and I almost finished my math homework!
We took notes in Journalism and started a short essay comparing ourselves to a character we read about (I picked Jessie from The Boxcar Children).
Art had a pretest (draw a bunch of stuff on a piece of paper, apple, hand, yourself, etc.) and I talked to a friend from church who transferred to my school this year. I have homeroom with her too!
Dance... we actually got up off the floor and went over the ballet positions and some terminology. So we'll be dancing tomorrow *ouch* and hopefully I won't get all sweaty before the ministry retreat. ORZ I still haven't memorized our mission statement... which, for anyone who cares, the condensed version is "Catch and release." We catch kids, educate them about Catholicism, prayer, and Christ, and then release them to teach others and spread His Word. So yeah...
Weeee *spinning in chair* I don't have so much homework tonight! So I can do a little drawing :)
OH OH OH!!! I just wanted to extend a very big thank you to everyone who commented on my post yesterday/day before, I will admit I was being too spazzy yesterday and complained a lot more than I should've... I'm sorry guys, please forgive me OTL my stress problem reared its ugly head for the first time in about four years.
THANK YOU ALL!! You are WAAAYYY TOO KIND!!! I appreciate that so much And... in light of not so much homework, I'll be making the post on Plothole #5 later tonight!
*The tag "happy happy teddy squirrel" references a recording I made on my DSi XL where I sang "happy happy teddy squirrel happy happy teddy squirrel, happy happy happy happy SQUIRREL" when I was super happy about something (I forget what exactly), but I play it sometimes when I get cheered up from a really bad funk.
I've already succumbed to the pressure of English and Global studies... I'm a horrible person... my dad was asking me about the syllabus which has some things in it that he didn't like (some R rated clips and something about videotaping classes), and I was like, "You can sign it now (it's a homework grade, I have to turn it in tomorrow), just write a note like it says you can and then you can talk with the teacher later. I need it or I'll get a zero," and my grandma asks me about it and I tell her exactly the same thing *shouting at that point, I'm so stressed* and I begged her to let me go study for the COMC test that I'm practically pulling my hair out at... aklskldlskdl my dad might take me out of Global Studies 2 Honors and it makes me mad because I want to be challenged, I need this challenge because I've never had work this hard before and need to know what my limits are, and if he goes and takes me out it'll feel like I failed myself... I just really wanna cry right now, I don't know what to do... AADSLKDNGOIDSOISNGOIDSOISDS
Ignore the rantings of a stressed teen who's getting her butt handed to her tenfold... I'm just being a baby about it really *slaps self* I need to get a grip fast or I'm gonna lose it.
Edit: I'M SUCH A HORRIBLE PERSON... my grandma made me muffins to cheer me up... freaking MUFFINS... I LOVE MUFFINS... and all I've been doing all night is freaking out and getting an attitude and I AM A HORRIBLE PERSON... BAKABAKABAKABAKABAKA
Edit 2: I ate a muffin... a baby banana nut muffin in a little baby muffin paper cup... that made me feel better. It was so cute and small, I almost felt bad eating it. But I talked to my grandma and now I feel a lot better.
That was one of the... ughhhh... days of school ever.
Algebra 3 CP was kinda fun; we got to play with toy cars to create probability scatter plots.
Global Studies 2 Honors... we have to write two full front/back pages of notes on a chapter from this book... and the stupid PDF is sideways because of the way the book was scanned. *dad performs PDF magic to make it so I can read it* And I have class with a couple of my friends, yay including the guy I had a crush on last year ORZ he's still as goofy as ever.
English 2 Honors... sucked I have a 34 question multiple choice test on the Count of Monte Cristo tomorrow and I'm SCARED OUTTA MY MIND. I mean, I read the book, but still... and Friday we have an in-class essay that's also part of the test. *crawls into a corner* The aforementioned friend didn't read the abridged version, sucks for him... no not really, I tried to help him and told him about cliffsnotes.com, which has a good summary he can read so he may or may not fail the test. BAKAAAAAA
Journalism looks fun... maybe. But the syllabus had so many spelling errors... bad omen.
Art, I actually have with my *freshman* cousin, and a girl from church who is really nice :) so that will be fun-ish. OOH! My cousin's actually talking to me and being nice, so that is a very good sign!
Dance 2... same old same old group of silly girls being silly... I almost fell over today, I was laughing so hard cuz we were playing the name game... *highlight of the day* that's the only class I'm not worried about, even though Imma be really sore soon, cuz it's at the end of the day.
I didn't get home till 5 cuz the bus was so overcrowded, the driver had to leave the kids at my stop behind, take care of the kids at the first few stops going home, then come back to school and pick us up :( I tried studying for the test, but it was so hot I couldn't muster the energy.
Then I come home, tell my grandma about my first day, change into my old PE clothes to get out of my *black* pants and kinda sweaty shirt, collapse onto a chair after eating a few Oreos and milk, then wait till my dad got home before we could eat dinner.
Now if you'll excuse me... I has studying to do.
BTW, TBH I just might cancel plothole #5 and double up next week... I don't think I'm gonna have time tomorrow with all the studying for Friday's test-ssay.
*dies in the corner*
Thanks to ye who wished me good luck (either yesterday or before that)... I think it would've been worse if y'all hadn't been so nice *gets death stare from grandma who prayed for me* and my granny too!
Well... tomorrow is the first day of school... wish me luck!
I'm still kinda scared about English and Global Studies (scary, scary teachers and scary, scary, SCARY tests), but I think I'll be alright.
Shipping off to bed waay early (like 10:15 lol) cuz i know it's gonna take me at least a half hour or more to fall asleep. (Normal bedtime = 11 pm)
My tummy's already doing somersaults lawl, so hopefully I'll be able to eat something in the morning. (Oh and BTW, for anyone who cares, when I saw my cousin the other night she confirmed she's going to my school, and she'll be riding the bus with me, if I didn't already mention that.)
Guess that's g'nite... Wednesday Wisdom will proceed as usual, though it might be a special Back To School Edition! *just thought of this now* *shot*
I failed to mention I saw a bunch of my friends* last night at a Peer Ministry meeting... akldhslkdsjlks I don't know how I forgot them... *is a terrible friend*
Anyways, we had Mass before the meeting (a new weekly mass right before the Youth Ministry nights, so it can lead right into it, though the kickoff isn't till this Sunday) and I saw a few of my friends. Afterwards I got a lot of compliments *terrible at taking compliments* about how the style suited me, looked really cute, couldn't believe I'd gotten it cut at GreatClips, other girls were thinking about going short like I did, etc... even one guy's mom complimented me on how I had a new glow about me.
Think: Like, what?! I cut all my hair off... are you sure it's not the fact that more light gets to my face?!
So to me it was like this:
Self-Confidence: Plus 1,000,000,000... You have attained UltraMegaSuperSelfConfidence! You are now ready for sophomore year!
ORZ I'm bad at receiving compliments... I usually don't get any from anyone
cuz I'm an ugly duckling so when I do get one, I don't know how to respond other than "Uhh, thanks(?)."
So... yeah... and I also saw my cousin and aunt at Target, and they liked it too *more compliments OTL* so the first day will definitely be interesting (if I see any of my friends, that is).
*Not a single person had an "OMG" face, so I thought nobody recognized me...
