Sooooooooo long without updating

Damn. First update in a looong while. School has been hell, as always. I'm actually passing some classes this year, as contrasted to last year, when my highest grade in an academic class was a D. When I got my interims a while back, my grades ranged from a 77 (C+, in Science) to a 93 (A-, in Math). I have a mixed bag of classes and teachers this year: I like my English teacher, and my Math and Career Dev. teachers, and my World History teacher just plain PWNS. I have a horrible Science teacher, however. Which sucks, since with the right teacher, I can enjoy Science. So, yeah, not enjoying Science this year. I am enjoying Math, however, and am doing much better than I did last year. I found out yesterday that I have a 95 average in that class. Probably my highest grade since 6th grade. Granted, I am taking the exact same course that I did last year... but oh well. My World History class is beyond awesome, I had a 92 average at interims, and I am really enjoying the class. I can't say I'm really enjoying my English class, but at least I am doing well. My Italian 2 class isn't bad. And Bio is just horrible. It's aweful. I hate my teacher. He is uber-confusing. He makes no sense, even when you can hear what the man is saying. Uhggh. As for my other two classes: Intro to Career Dev. is a joke, no work ever gets done. Good period for doing homework, though. And P.E. is moderatly fun, when the jocks don't take control of the class. In other words, it sucks, too.

I'm not getting as much homework as I did last year, thankfully. I don't have any teachers who take pleasure in assigning behemoth assignments to be done in one night, as my Alg. 2 teacher did last year. I have a few projects, though: so far, I have done one on a potential future career as a Computer Programmer, for Business, a project on an idol, also for business: I did H. P. Lovecraft. Just last night, I completed a Science project on the Grassland Biome, possilby the most boring topic on the Planet Earth. I also have an English project on The Grapes of Wrath due next week, and a massive essay on Cistic Fibrosis due for Science towards the end of the month; I have even started that thing yet. I think it has to be a minimum of 6 pages of writing, Times New Roman 12. Double spaced, thankfully. I think that's it for projects, but I know I have a big one on Ancient Greece coming up, and NO INTERNET SOURCES ALLOWED. Uhghh.

I have some more time this year for extra-work activities. I have joined the Italian Club, which is quite fun-I have also been elected treasurer of that club. I have been semi-active gaming, as well-not as much, lately, but I did play through Half-Life recently, excellant game. I shall be starting the expansion packs pretty soon here. I have also found my Homeworld disc, I will probably restart that pretty soon here as well. I've also been writing a couple short stories recently, I might post them here when I get the wrinkles ironed out.

Ah, well, that's all for now. Good night, and good luck.
