I'm beginning to loathe Christopher Lee--not to be confused with Chris Lee, the actor. No, Christopher Lee, the historian-slash-writer.
I usually have no problem historian-slash-writers. My teacher, last year, was one, and he was one of my favorite teachers of all time. His book, furthermore, was actually quite interesting, from what I was able to read. And I certainly don't have a problem with JUST historians or JUST writers, either, given that I am kind of a budding writer (if I can just think up something wicked cool to write and get it out there), and that I constantly flip to the History Channel.
So you'd think I'd be in Heaven, reading about my favorite time period (end of Elizabethan), written by an historian-slash-writer.
But this guy. Is whacked up.
I can respect him for doing what he loves, and getting published, along with the fact that his knowledge far surpasses my own in the era. What I cannot get past, however, is why my school has that book, while even Amazon barely carries a copy. Who would be dumb enough to pick it up and think, Oh, good, giant words and 356 pages. SOUNDS LIKE FUN. FOR TWO TEST GRADES.
And only now am I realizing how deep I'm in it, this being the eve of my due date.
(You may wonder why I'm blogging at such a HUGE moment, when I should be rushing to finish my paper. What you must not realize, is that I surely have mental problems, having let this go four or five weeks, knowing that I need to get it done. I actually even talked to Stevie middaymoon for an hour and a half, today, disregarding any nagging thoughts about how my teacher waits for no man. (And takes no late work.) He should not blame himself for my failure, in this case, because he must realize that I was doomed from the start, really, and need some motivation to begin working way ahead of time. I, slacker of slackers, need to be beaten with a pointy stick. Ruthlessly.)
So now, I'm trying to find anything on him. At all. Good luck to my teacher, when she tries to find any tiny sample of something I could have plagiarized, because, seriously, there is NOTHING.
But I guess I shouldn't be so down on myself. It's truly Christopher Lee's fault. If the title of his book hadn't looked interesting, I wouldn't be in such a pickle.
It's my fault.

The Governor's School packet came, by the way. Right now, they aren't looking for any applications in spaces other than Music, but I have, like, a year until applications for my junior year go in. Or, well, I kind of have to start preparing RIGHT NOW, and shadowing to see what stuff's like and look dedicated, but...I don't know. There's still time.
My biology teacher has made things WAY more interesting, now. Which isn't to say learning itself has improved in any way possible. She's just started to send people out in the hall in large groups so they can wander at will. The more interesting part if it is that she sends classmates to go choose people to take back into class with a number limit. It's almost like she's trying to put us up against each other.
It's actually quite interesting to observe, being the little "GTS" (goody-two-shoes) I am.
Or, so most teachers think, I guess. There's a difference between being a GTS (PAH) and just being intelligent enough to not make serious trouble so they don't notice when I do pass a few notes and such.
Except my Algebra teacher, who put me in the worst possible seating area EVER. I'm by a guy I've known since I was, like, 8; a few major talkers; and probably two sane, silent people.
So, DUH, I talk.
In other news, I am an idiot.
Actually, the last news, because I'm so tired.
