I wouldn't have voted for him
Tuesday. 1.20.09 10:14 pm
But you know what? He got elected anyway. And I'm standing by my president. Congratulations, Mr. President.

Though the fact that we just spent 150 mil kind of seems like a slap in the face. YES, it's a totally historic day. I appreciate that. Jus' saying.

My English teacher gave back our World Lit rough drafts a few weeks ago. She made revisions and gave us until tomorrow to make them. I figured it would be a good idea to take it out of my folder and leave it in the computer room to stem procrastination. Not only did it really not work, but now I've lost the thing, and I cannot remember much about the changes I was supposed to make.

One hand, it's not such a big deal because the rough draft made a 25 (translates into a 96). So it's already pretty good. I'm just that awesome, I guess.

But on the other hand, this is serious business. I want to do the best I possibly can. I'm ranked 35 or so in my class. I want to make top 10% by my senior year. That's going to be hard. ESPECIALLY WITH CREATIVE WRITING.

"David
what did you make on the rough draft?

8:40pmSteve
25

...hahaha

8:40pmDavid
ah, that is righ

t

dont worry about it

8:41pmSteve
I want to, though.

I want to do the best I can, David.

I want to exceed myself.

I want to be the best there ever was.

8:42pmDavid
psh

stop trying to be like me

just re-read your paper

8:42pmSteve
To catch them is my real test.

8:42pmDavid

dum, dum DUM

8:42pmSteve
To train them is my cause.

I WILL TRAVEL ACROSS THE LAND.

8:42pmDavid
PO-Ke_MON

8:42pmSteve
gotta catch 'em all!

I love the grammatically correct apostrophe.

8:43pmDavid
haha

I concur"

If I make a B in creative writing, I will scream. I lost points on the exam because the story I put in, which was supposed to be fiction, had too many fact-looking-things in it. She wasn't grading the story (admittedly, this relieves me), just giving points for having it. But it's not Fiction-y enough or something. HAVE YOU NEVER HEARD OF SCI-FI? This is the story about the planet having a speed limit and the years getting shorter and stuff. WTF.

Anyway. I'm just running through my paper and trying to fix the mistakes I find. Wish me luck! My grade can't go down, can it?

...can it?

Unlocking the Mind
Monday. 1.19.09 9:55 pm
Since nobody has submitted any art that really goes with the theme for the Magazine this year (Unlocking the Mind or something like that), Ms. H asked me to do something. And I have been.

I'm super pumped about it, but I basically have to keep it secret until Wednesday. I can't decide about whether a visual effect I did detracts or adds to the overall message, so I'm gonna get the staff to take a vote. This is the most important "job" I've ever done, and I'm really excited about it. Maybe even a bit too much.

I tracked down the track from that trailer for Watchmen (it's by The Smashing Pumpkins), so I'm drooling over that a little bit...

Toodles, guys!

I slept 4 hours, went to basketball practice, (my joints are acting up again, joy), took some meds, and went to bed around 10:30.

This morning I woke up at almost 11.

And that is it.

Actually, I feel terrible.
