Bio AP test was today. Don't you just adore it when I start blogs with sentence fragments like that? Hoo ya. In any event, bio AP test. It was today. It wasn't too bad. By that I mean, it wasn't calculus. I actually knew a good portion of it. So I don't feel all depressed or anything. I am pleased with the amount of studying I did. And I am also pleased that I managed the entire year without cheating in any way shape or form. Not once. So take that, you cheating bastards.
The only slightly disturbing bit of the bio AP was the fact that there were rather a lot of ecology questions. The ecology section was the last 5 chapters of the book, and we sort of ran out of time in the class, so we ended up not really addressing them. They were skimmed over in class, but since I missed most of the classes in which we went over them (for other AP tests, bien sur), I was utterly unfamiliar with the material. Luckily, ecology is almost 100% common sense, and it wasn't too difficult to bull through it with a fair degree of confidence.
Oh yes, and of course it sort of sucked that no one had any idea when/where the test was this morning. It could have been at the school or at the town library. It could have been at 8 am or 9 am. No one knew. So we all showed up at the town library at 8. Desolation. Mark and Quang pounded on the library door (Mark, with his hooded sweatshirt, looking for all the world like some kind of mass murderer) until a cranky old library man came out to see what all the commotion was. We asked him if there was an AP test at the library and he was a bit short with us. He may have just been naturally mean-tempered, but then again, he may have been reacting somewhat poorly to Mark and Quang's admittedly dubious intimidation tactics.
Anywho, he came back out 10 minutes later and told us that yes, there was an AP test at the town library today, but it wasn't until 9. Seething with rage, many rash words were spoken about the effectiveness of the school guidance department (they run the AP tests) in letting us know these things. Some pretty harsh accusations were made of the particular guidance angel who leads us (ineptly, to be sure) through each and every AP test. There was some swearing.
I mean, just picture it. We're standing outside the catdamned town library at 8 am. We're waiting to take a 3-4 hour long AP test that most of us (i.e. everyone but Richie) fully expect to fail. We've just learned that we could have slept in for another hour. And to top it all off, they won't let us inside the library to wait. So we're standing outside. Where it's cold. Where there's a particularly nasty breed of drizzle coming down. And not a one of us has a rain coat.
Yes, our collective mood was one of sunshine and fluffy puppies. Anywho, me, Jess, Caroline and Richie went to Starbucks, which was good, because I got caffeine (which would, later in the day, test the resolution of my posterior pituitary gland's production of antidiuretic hormone... in other words, later on it made me have to pee. Gosh. I really did study). I also learned that Richie has an even worse sense of direction than me, which made me happy in an I'm-not-alone sort of way.
I'm off on a rocketship
Ecstatic with the view.
Glorious animation on B3ta today. I would only suggest checking it out if you saw the first XMen movie. If you did see that movie, it's absolutely hilarious. Leastaways, it was to me. I choked upon my own mirth, I did. Here's the link right to it, all convenient and such.
Today it was pointed out to me that a disproportionate (sp?) number of women on Survivor are named Jenna, or Jenny, or some variation on that theme. It sure does seem like there are a lot of them. Is this some strange sort of scientific phenomenon? Should someone look into it? Undoubtedly someone should, but it sure as heck won't be me.
just because i can...
boo ya! i'm on da map!
I am full of famousness. All you less famous folk may weep in your obscurity now.
Not to belabor a point I'm pretty sure I brought up some several blogs ago, but people are still whining that there is a lack of interesting stuff on here. And I know why people are saying that. To these people I say:
Click on the frelling links! That's what they're there for! Honestly. You think I put up these links merely for my own amusement? Nay, 'tis not so. If there's a link in the body of the blog, it's cause I came across it in my wanderings through the Internet, and I deemed it full of amusement/education/gloriousness value.
So if I say 'gosh dern it kids, I found a mad crazy animation today, here's the link!', don't come whining to me about boring blogs unless you clicked on the link and saw what that was all about.
Humph. If we were in Iraq right now I'd give you people the thumbs up sign. It's an insult there, ya know.
I figure that's enough reader abuse for one day, non?
I feel like I haven't been into school in ages. This is partly because I haven't been into school in ages. AP tests are not much fun while they're happening, but lawdy am I pleased afterwards. Unfortunately, psych tomorrow is in the afternoon, rather than the morning. This means I get to sleep in. But it makes the day soooooo long. I am not going into school, though. Technically, I think we're supposed to, but if those people ('those people' being guidance/the office) think that I am going into school and then taking a 3 hour test that ends up being 4 hours, thus extending my school day way beyond what it normally is, they are sadly, sadly mistooken. So to speak.
And I am going
