School... EVIL!!!
Thursday, May 17, 2007

So the end of the school year is approaching which means it's time for all hell to break loose!

We recently (as a class) did a few bake-sales as part of a "Business and Stock Market Research" project, because aparently stock-brokers and baked goods are just so similar. Anyway now we have to a self-reflection type report on the project. One of the questions for the report is "What have you learned about yourself over the course of this project?"... I'm sorry but we were selling f***ing cookies! Since when did anyone ever experience some sort of life-altering revelation because of a cupcake?

I just found that report kind of stupid but it's not the worst of it. Our English teacher expects every assignment we do to be some sort of masterpiece and well, that's just not the way stuff goes all the time. So we have a big short story project to do. We have these Geography/IT presentation... crap due tomorrow! We have a health assignment due next week sometime which wouldn't be such a big deal if we didn't have all this other stuff to do.

I'm pretty sure we have a Science test next week based on info from the entire year so I'm gonna have to study like crazy but I'm pretty good at Science and I enjoy it (unlike everyone else) so I should do OK.

Our music teacher is the best though! She's the one who I convinced to watch Firefly which she loved and watched with her husband. It turns our some of her friends are big Joss fans so she's gonna be borrowing Buffy and Angel soon. Our end-of-year Music assignment is awesome. You get to form groups and play whatever song you want with whichever instruments you want (I finally get to play my bass!). I'm in two groups, one with my girlfriends playing some song that has about 3 notes, pretty boring but they needed me and I'm there. My other group is a bunch of guys, which includes a very talented drummer and guitarist so that'll probably rock. One of my friends in the girl group is kiind of mad about me joining both groups but It's not a huge deal, I'm pretty sure she'll get over it (I really hope so anyway).

On top of all of this most of our teachers hate us (our class can be so horrible so it's understandable). I tend to get along pretty well with my teachers so it's all cool.

Our French teacher will probably give us something to do soon, because that would just be ever so covenient, I really don't like him he's just oozing with creepy vibes.

In a couple weeks our school is going to camp so it'll be a much needed break from the madness.

I just needed to get that off my chest, I'm not being the bratty little kid (at least I'm not trying) but it's just been kind of stressful at school lately and I had a bad day. I'm planning on doing some fic writing and actually finally learning a martial art (my dad is a martial artist) I also plan on learning spanish (again with the dad). I guess that's what summer's for. Ugh... I really have to get back to homework now but I'll check back in on the boards later.

I completely understand how you feel!!! I've had deadlines and uni work all over the place for the last few weeks and to be frank, I'm just getting SO sick of it now. It takes over everything else I want to do, and I'm counting down the days til it will all be finished.

Bring on the summer! Take comfort in the fact you're not the only one who feels like that, we're all with you! Well done on converting your teacher btw, I think I've done the same with one of my uni lecturers *high five*

Trust me when I say this, Gomithrous...things do NOT get any easier in college/university when it comes to creepy teachers, stacks of assignments and moronic educational logic:(

Still...martial arts! And Spanish! Mucho coolio;)

Good luck and think about how great the holiday will be after all this stress.

See you can say you learned that you don't deal with or enjoy frustration in the last month of school:) HUGS and glad you're going to make it...vent away:) If it makes you feel any better the teachers are just as frustrated and done as you are:)
