School is very surreal-feeling. And not really in a good way.
Perhaps that's just because it's early and I'm not used to any of the classes or teachers yet. But it all seems very weird, and there was something about today that made me very pessimistic about how the rest of the year is going to look. I don't know, I just hope that I'm wrong and it doesn't all suck as badly as it has the potential to.
The best by far is french class, which has a grand total of 6 people in it (me, Jess, Maura, Maddie, Vlad and Chulsky). It's incredible. And with Madame, the fun just never ends. I have no idea why they're running it with so few people, but hey, I'm sure not going to complain. I look foward to french class. It seemed especially good today because it was nice to see a familiar teacher.
It does tend to get somewhat disconcerting, all of these teachers being just completely unknown variables. I get the feeling that I'll be a lot more comfortable in the classes once I figure out the teachers.
The school seems so cluttered this year. My lunch was waaaaayyyy overcrowded. Maybe it's because there are so many dirty little freshmen. It might also be because they mucked around with the schedule to make it fully rotating, and they probably overloaded first and third lunch, and left second lunch empty. The people who run my school are geniuses like that.
This morning I arrived at the school and there was the entire senior class, standing there screaming at cars, cheering, and generally being loud and perky. Some of the girls had on translucent white tank tops emblazoned with witticisms like "03 4 life!". I saw a couple of my friends who were not screaming, so I went to stand with them. As I did so, I reflected on the deep and all-consuming hatred that I had for my class.
I mean, really. So far as I am concerned, the first day of school is not a cause for celebration, no matter what grade you're in. I wish people would just shut up and sit still so we could get this year over with already.
Yup. Nothing else to say about the first day of school, other than I hate being back and wish it were summer again. Thank cats there are only 2 days this week.
I have a paper to write for psych, already, but I am telling myself that I am writing this as a warm up exercise. I thus justify spending time on the blog. I also have a biology quiz tomorrow, but I have no justification for why I'm not studying for that right now, other than the obvious fact that I'm much too busy warming up for my psych paper.
My biology books comes with a CD in it. I hope it has games.
I hope that you all have games.
