The Universe

The massive tree chart at left is what I used to make certain that I had accurately determined all of my possible schedule options (I had, and they are included at the bottom of this post).

I spent most of my day watching history channel documentaries. The one about the history of and development of the Big Bang Theory was by far my favorite, but the one on the origins of the moon was also pretty cool. The one about the San Andreas fault was boring, but, in case you're interested, there is a 99% chance that there will be a major, building collapsing earthquake in the Los Angeles area within the next 30 years.

Good thing I don't live there.

Also, R.I.P. Ronald Takaki, who died last week. I'm currently quoting his text in my social studies essay, so I'll consider that my own form of memorialization. And yes, memorialization is an actual word. My spellcheck says so.

I also spent some time this weekend planning my schedule options, which are listed below.
1 Physics Physics Oil Oil
2 Calculus Calculus Calculus Calculus
3 Gym Gym Gym Gym
4 Anthro Anthro Anthro Anthro
5 Spanish ASR Spanish ASR

everything that says oil painting is actually gov semester 1 and oil painting semester 2, and everything that says anthro is adv. drawing semester 1 and anthropology semester 2.

OMG teaaaaa.....I can't believe you did that!! usually I just randomly make like 9 scheds a couple days before arena!! that's sooo cool, would you make one for me??

PreCalc
AP World
AP Econ

Jk though...I get the feeling that making the tree was a multi-hour long endeavor...

anyway...so I cut school today...how fun! only not b/c I was sick and spent the ENTIRE day alternatively working on my EoQR and studying for the chem final!!!

btw: I gave you some nice compliments/ credit in some section for grammarizing (it's a word...) and reading my narrative...

Tea said...

it took ten minutes actually.
and you cut school but aren't sick?! what!? that is so unfair. I actually am sick, and I can't quite function properly, and it sucks, pretty much.
and I'd love to do one for you, but what semester is research and lit, and do you truly have 2 frees for the semester that it isn't?

vicky/bruney said...

i was very sick today!! Sad that I get wayyyy more work done out of school than in school...
I forgot to list italian!!! sorry....

For next year i only have 1/2 a free total!!! both research&lit and adv journalism are eng courses and AP World and AP Econ are SS...So my free is second semester when R&L ends...i know, i know, weird sched...i had to persuade my guidance counselor...

here's my true sched:
Gym
Italian 3
R&L (S1)/Free (S2)
Adv. Journalism
PreCalc A
Phys A
AP World
AP Econ

Tea said...

your classes are offered too many periods, so you have hundreds of possibilities, so I can't do it. So sorry.

it should be illegal to get schedule E. order of preference as of now: D, B, C, A, E.

also, as i got to leave math early to get in scheduling line at the guidance office, i managed to avoid eating lunch with CESM (cheese eating super moose) but he still managed to hug me later...

jackie- if we both get our first choices, we'll have 2 classes together! whoopeee!
and vicky- you should take gym period three with me. It's my singleton (it's the only class I'm taking that is available that period), so if you get that period, you're virtually guaranteed a class with moi.
unfortunately, that's the only overlap we have.

1. R&L/Free
2. Italian 3A
