Playing: Pokemon Black and White
I've been keeping helluva busy these past few months... I hardly have energy to do much, I do school, I work, and I dedicate the rest of my time to friends irl... I've lost a lot of internet activity.
OKAY. So this is what I've been doing
- finishing senior year at high school
- completing senior project
- been secretly followed by last year's English teacher
- contributing to Dev's M&B story, though admittedly not as much as I feel I should
My first nine weeks of school were a BITCH. I have geometry all year, and I also had to take a math prof. class for failing my math PSSA exams... So I was not happy with having two math classes on one schedule, but I think my re-exam went a lot better.
Another hard class was economics, but Mr. Brown was a really awesomely funny man, so I looked forward to his class even though it was a lot of hard work. He's quite silly, once during a test he made us draw tic-tac-toe boards on our papers, and he went around the room playing with everyone. XD
The senior project is also difficult. I'm from the U.S., so I'm not sure if people outside the states deal with them. I know that not all the states require a senior project, and that each school has a different project. Mine requires-
- a research paper
- a letter of intent/letter of approval
- 100 hours of logged volunteer work or job shadowing
- a 3 minute junior speech
- 20 photos (10 with me in them)
- a presentation with photos, typed captions, and a 7 minute speech.
My project has involved job shadowing a librarian, and it's harder than it looks. I use the library's microfilm machine to read newspapers from the 1950s, then I write down the names and dates of all the obituaries. Then, when I get a lot of them, I go to type them out on index cards, then I alphabetize them, and then I add them to the index catalog of all the dead people. Occasionally I have another job, and help a patron use the machines or print something, but that's basically what I do. Mondays are hardest, because I go for 6 straight hours after 6 school hours, so I'm busy for 12 hours. x.x
However, I'm really considering getting a job as either a librarian or a teacher, so this is a good opportunity for me, and while it's hard, I'm glad I have to do it.
I also think I have a secret admirer, who's a teacher. >_>; He just stares at me all the time, and if I try to look at him he looks away or pretends I'm not there, and that's really unusual since most of my teachers at least smile in my direction if we see each other. >.O
OH! And I no longer have my cool sub account. It sucks, I really miss it already. XD
I wish I had more people to talk to about my teacher...
