well let’s see. today wasnt too bad, really! english was ok, NO EDL THANK GOD and i dont mind poetry much. *shrugs* not really sure what to think so far, but being in the class with kathy, emily, tri, & mel makes it interesting and fun. i got assigned that infamous ‘i am’ poem and a two page autobiography about ‘anything.’ as long as ‘anything’ includes what i did to prepare for the ap test last year, how i did, how i feel i did, and how i feel about the ap test in general. *…* anyway. it could be much worse, i’m sure, lol.

french is kinda hell right now cuz i dont remember anything. especially verbs. oh man verbs *groans*. luckily mrs eldridge is a nice teacher and she knows that i missed a year in between french II and III so i think i’ll survive..

lunch was calm today cuz oj and matt went off to somebody’s houses, kathy and tri got stuck in chem, and mel and katie just didnt show up at the meeting place. so emily and i jumped in her car after beeing chased off school property and headed to her mom’s house, where we ate, drank, and generally made merry. we also reminisced about last year and talked about what i am to do about my eigth period.. more on that topic later.

calc was … an adventure. i arrived about 15 minutes before class started, and had to wait a while before they let us go up the stairs.. god forbid we arrive early for class. but even then i was a good 12 minutes early. still, i wasnt the first. irene was there, and so were about 5 other people. everybody’d come early to get a seat, since about 10 people in our class have to sit on the floor. i saved a seat for ma k-girl kathy behind me, and mel came in a bit later and had no seat, so he sat in the isle next to me, occasionally banging his head on my elbow cuz….. he’s mel. class proceeded. mostly it was review, but i had a hard time concentrating on what he was saying, i dunno why. i’m kinda worried cuz i remember less of what i learned last year than i thought i did. the hw was easy though, cept for the last question, and i finished that in 8th period. the title for the hw, though, really got me. it seems so random! it says:

“Label Label Label, I Made It Out of Clay”

what does that have to do with calculus? lol oh well.

since i have an off period 8th period i headed to mrs abel’s class cuz i cant go home (stepdad wont pick me up, then come back in an hour and a half to pick up my sister & her two friends we carpool with). i dropped off my homecoming picture in mrs mckees room. i had a hella time figuring out which one to turn in, and when i asked people for their opinion, i got pretty much even votes on all three pictures : P

i scanned some of the pics and sent them to alé last night, who retouched them and made them look a little nicer.

this picture wasnt one of the ones i got blown up to maybe turn in, as i wanted my ‘arm art’ to show, but the third picture i brought to school alé doesnt have on his site, so i cant link to it, can i?

this second pic was popular, tho prolly the least popular of the three i took to school today. the one that’s not shown tied closely with the one i ended up picking.

THIS pic is the one i ended up picking, as you can see my kneehigh boots (compliments of emily, they killed my feet as she wears a size 7 and i a 10), my kilt, my necklace, armlet, arm art, headband, and the evil look on my face very well.

emily and kathy both turning in ‘unique’ pictures as well, and all three of us are happy cuz we feel like we’re adding a little zest to homecoming, as most people turn in some fairly normal senior pic or just an ordinary pic. who knows? maybe we’ll come dressed up like that to homcoming. now that would be awesome. mrs mckee wasnt really sure what to think, i think, when she saw all of our pics, lol. she exclaimed over all three of them, and then admitted ‘you guys are killing me with these!’

btw, katie had some awesome pictures too, but as she’s the photographer of the four of us, her pictures (taken by us) didnt turn out as nice as ours did. but she did turn in a really pretty one of her in her backyard with her hair up.

*coughs* so yea. i was planning on meeting drew in mr schumacher (sp?) ‘s office to show him the preview-trailer for drew’s movie, but he got there early, so by the time i got there at 2:10 (the time he said he’d be there) he was gone. mr schumacher and i talked for a bit though, and it was nice cuz he’s friendly. he started talking about dawson’s creek, tho i’m not really sure why, and i’ve never watched that show. then i went back to mrs abel’s class and looked in the api to see if i could come up any ideas for something to code. mrs abel was ultracool, and let me have an account, though technically i’m not in her class : P. cuz of this, i’m a9hodcro : ) yep.. 9th period.. lol. and hey, it’s not my fault the thing’s too short to take my whole name! lol.

here’s a little schedule that i think is accurate, as far as the last of the ‘senior’ departures go:

15 August: tripp

17 August: alé, ar00n

20 August: drewish

21 August: thomas-o, cam

22 August: blakerson

Sometime in a month or so: bob (nick)

so wish the last of your fave now-college-freshmen goodbye and give them shiney things, for the week of leaving is arrived!
