Memorial Day Weekend

I am very much in need of this three-day weekend.
For one, I have a bunch of missing assignments in science and geometry. Those need to get finished.
For another, it is supposed to be sunny (at least tomorrow and Sunday are) and my legs are PASTY! All this Oregon winter leaves you looking as white as paper. I need to get my tan back.
Should be a fun weekend. I'm getting ice cream tonight with my home-dogs, and tomorrow night I'm babysitting. Then Monday is Memorial day, and I'm having a barbecue with my family and some friends. Pretty exciting stuff. :)

School is Almost Over

   School is almost almost ALMOST over. And then....NO MORE FRESHMAN YEAR, EEVVVVEEERRRR!!!!!!!
   And then it will be summer. And I have a babysitting job this summer, which is AWESOME! I'll make money, but it's not gonna take up every spare moment I've got, so I still have time to hang with my friends and stuff.
   I'm trying to get all my grades up to A's before the year is over. I'm SO close....but I'm not there yet. Ugh. Math is killing me.
   I tokk my AP Human Geography Exam on Friday. It actually wasn't too hard. The multiple choice was pretty easy, and two of the essay questions were easy, but the last one was hard.
   Here's the link to the essay questions (they release them 48 hours after the test):
   Soon, we will be going to the beach and shopping and doing everything we want to do.

AP Human Geography

   I have my first ever AP test tomorrow. AP Human Geography. I am terrified and yet somewhat excited, for some odd reason.
   Wish me luck!

   It is FINALLY the weekend. I'm so happy I could almost cry. It has been the longest week in the history of ever.
   That being said, it's been a pretty good week too. And the weekend is going to be phenomanal. Tonight I am going to watch T.V. to my heart's content, and I will sleep in tomorrow morning. Then tomorrow afternoon I am going shopping with Jasmine and Rachel, and then at night, I'm going to a dance. And guess who's gonna be there? BEN! And with the luck I've been having this week, everything will be perfect.

Space Junk

   If I weren't so bad at physics I would totally be an astrophysicist.
   See, I LOVE space and time and string theory and all that crazy junk. But I am terrible at math. And this poses a problem in physics, which, incidentally, is mostly math.
   I'm planning on going to nursing school after high school, since I love people and medicine and the science that they do is mosly chemistry, which I also love. But all those stars and planets and black holes and dark energy and dark matter....ah. It's enough to make you wish they were still sending people to the moon.
   I fell in love with space when I started watching Star Trek: Voyager with my brother. (This is the series that people claim isn't a real Star Trek because the captain is a woman. Total crap. She's amazing.) This love was reinforced when we had a brief astronomy unit in science last semester. And now I just read everything I can possible find on the subject because I LOVE it.
   Right now I'm trying to understand anti-matter. It really doesn'tmake much sense. I can't seem to wrap my head around the idea that it's not matter or space, and yet it still exists. But that's what makes it so cool.
   And then there's string theory. This is the theory that proposes that there is actually TEN dimensions. There's the three we know to be true (line, flat plane, and three-dimensional space), there's time, and then there's six more. CRAZY! The problem comes with proving their existence. But we can do it. We proved that the world was round when it was thought to be flat. We proved that the earth orbits around the sun. We've proved crazy, AMAZING things. We'll get this eventually.

Songs That Are Inspiring Me Right Now

   Due to the stupidity of my computer, I won't be posting the links for these songs like I usually do. Pathetic, I know.

"Payphone" by Maroon 5
   I am addicted to this song. I am addicted to Maroon 5. Seriously. Legitamitely. (Did I spell that right? I don't think so.)

"Diamonds" by Rob Thomas
   This is a beautiful song. And Rob Thomas has an amazing voice.

"Everybody's Fool" by Evanescance
   This song is an amazing portrayal of how people hide their emotions. Someone can appear perfectly happy to everyone else, but be dying inside. That's why there needs to be a mix of emotions.

"My Front Porch Looking In" by Lonestar
   This is one of the only songs written in the last decade that places value on the family. I personally hold my family very dear to me, and I love this song.

"What Makes You Beautiful" by One Direction
   No, I am not a crazy over-the-top One Direction fan. But this is a really good song. I dance whenever it comes on. :)

50 Question That Will Free Your Mind: Part 8

36. Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?
   About some things, it is. For instance, killing people. It's not good to kill people. But about some things, some people might have gray areas. Like abortion, and gay marriage, and some of the other things sitting before our United States congress. I know what my views are on these things, but I'm biased. I may or may not be right.

37. If you just one a million dollars, would you quit your job?
   Seeing as I don't currently hold a steady job, I would have to say, yes, I would quit babysitting and save it so I could go to a good college and get a job I really enjoy.

38. Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?
   If I enjoy it, I don't know if I really see it as work. It's fun. So I suppose I'd rather have more "work" I actually enjoy. But I would very much enjoy having less work right now. Less homework would be nice. Speaking of which, I should be doing my geometry homework right now.....

39. Do you feel like you've lived this day a hundred times before?
   Ooh, I like this question. Yes, my days are very repetitive. In some ways I like it (you know, that whole "safety in repetition" thing), but for the most part, I don't. But it's kinda hard to mix it up when you gotta go to school every day, with the same classes and the same people. I try. But it's difficult.

40. When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?
   Never. If I strongly believe in it, the days of "soft glow" are long gone. When I march into the dark with something I truly believe in, I've got a whole hoard of flashlights and lanterns and it's nearly as bright as day.
