Glowstick Pool Party and Test Results
Jun 16, 2010
Good lord people. This morning when I walked out to my car to check and see if it was dry yet, there was a puddle of water in the back floor board of my car. A PUDDLE. IN MY CAR. I had to run inside and grab a towel and just lay it on the floor and jet because I was going to be late for math (even though I was 15 minutes early as usual... I really need to start leaving later. x___x) And it still smells SO BAD in there. D: When I got back I sprayed some Feebreze and tried to get some more moisture out of there... and I drive with the windows down to ventilate it and it still smells musty and dirty. So not cool!
So, on the first day of math we had to take a test that we weren't graded on and it didn't count against us, it was really just a review to see how much we remember from our last class. I surprisingly only missed four, but that's kind of embarrassing considering they gave an example of how to do the problem to the side. It was pretty weird. But today in class was the first time he actually started teaching. What he writes on the board is a lot sloppier compared to my last semester teacher. He doesn't label anything and doesn't write out any instructions. Really you have to pay attention, try and keep up (he goes SO FAST) and scribble down your own notes. Though the material we're going over now SEEMS pretty easy to do... I dunno. I kinda worry about what's going to happen later in the semester.
My main concern is when the exit exam comes around. Last semester I took the exam and felt pretty good about it considering how nervous I was when walking into class. When I emailed my teacher and found out what I got on it, I only got a 75%. The deal was you had to get a 70% or better to pass the class. And I only passed by 5%. That REALLY scared me! It was all multiple choice, I knew how to do everything... but I think it's the little things that got me. A lot of the answers were really similar and only had minor differences between them. I dunno. I'm just gonna have to try my best... and go to bed earlier!
Speaking of sleep, when I got home from class (I stayed there a little later than usual to go to the computer lab) I took the most epic nap. I have class from 10:30 to 11:40 in the morning on Tuesdays, then at night I have class from 6:00 to 9:20 at the same place. So I have to drive 20 minutes back home and just sit for 6 hours then drive all the way back. At first I wasn't going to take a nap because I wanted to get some sleep tonight, but sure enough I broke down and slept. For 5 hours. It stormed outside so I slept like a wee little baby. And of course I almost fell asleep in Psychology again. xD
OH, AND I GOT MY TEST SCORES BACK TODAY. I got an 85% on chapter nine (the first test) but only a 66% on chapter ten! D: I was expecting the absolute worst, and I pulled through on one of the tests. The teacher told the entire class that she usually drops the lowest grade at the end of the semester, and she's thinking about dropping chapter ten for the entire class. So, if she does that, I'll be alright. But for right now, I'm not doing so good. I really need to just crack down and study. If I can make an 85% with only just barely knowing the material, I KNOW I can do a lot better. And I need to. I payed for my summer semester out of pocket. I don't want over $1,000 to go to waste because I'm not responsible enough to do well in school.
But all seriousness aside, after class was let out at 8:45 I had to drive over to my friends house to use her phone charger just long enough for me to make a phone call and get my other friends address. It's really cool that my friend's mom is nice enough to let me just barge into her house and use her charger like that. I love her so much. Once I got the address I went over to my other friends house where I thought we were going to be watching movies.
The deal was it was supposed to be a pool party, but I got a text in the middle of my nap saying that it was going to be canceled because of the weather. Instead they were going to be watching movies. So I didn't bring a swimming suit or a towel like I was supposed to and came totally unprepared for what happened. The party was still on. And I had nothing. So someone who was there thought ahead and bought a swimming suit in case someone needed one. So I put it on and looked REALLY bad in it. It was a bikini and I don't have near the figure to be wearing one. (I have lots of nasty stretch marks. It's so gross. I wish they would go away. Dx) so I found a tank top and put it on and felt less insecure. The pool was really warm but frogs kept jumping into it and meeting their untimely demise. =/ She had a salt water pool so I don't think it hurt them as much as a chlorine pool would... but they still bit the... dust?
I met a few nice people while I was there and made a new friend along the way. She's also an art student planning on going to my community college! I hope we have a class together. There was also a girl at the party that had a suspiciously deep voice. Whenever everyone left and it was just me, Jessica, and my new friend there Jessica told us that she was actually a he! It was really surprising because "she" had boobs and had a really great figure and "she" didn't appear to have a man part in her pants... I dunno. It's not a bad thing, it was just REALLY unexpected. And "she" also had a boyfriend who appeared to be very straight. I dunno how their relationship works out. She was all over him at the party.
So the three of us stayed and chatted well after the party was over and helped clean up the place. It was a huge mess. There were tons of glow sticks and food and just stuff all over the place. Oh, it was a glow stick pool party, and she even had a pool that had lights that changed colors. xD Her house is gigantic. I'm so jealous. >:
Someone brought a package of double stuffed oreos that I went to town on. I ate a few of them and got in the pool, then came back in and they were ALL GONE. It was FULL when I left and someone ate every last one of them! I think it was Dakota. But I could be wrong.
So, I friended my new friend on facebook and we're supposedly going rollerblading tomorrow at the YMCA. Hopefully I feel up to it and decide not to take a nap instead. xD
