So, I just finished two Lab Quizzes in BIO. I made two 100s! Yay! X3
So now I'm currently leeching internet from the school and waiting for 1 o'clock to roll around so I can head off to Nationals. I really should be working on my HIS midterm that's due tonight but.... I don't really wanna.
I'm a bit annoyed at that class right now because I made a 7/8 on my last paper for some reason. >< The teacher hasn't responded about the grade yet, but he said that my midterm sounded very well thought out so far when I asked him about the line "historical legacy" he wanted us to write about.
In other news, I went to Wal-Mart last night to pick up some more of my powdered drink mix for the trip, and I managed to find myself in an alise that was compromised of toilet paper and chocolate.... o.O
I have absolutely NO IDEA what those two items have in common, but ooookay Wal-Mart, if you say so.
And to top it all off, they didn't have my Strawberry-Kiwi mix. They had everything BUT. X# So, I had to get up earlier than normal this morning so I could head to the other Wal-Mart and buy my drink mixes at 5 o'clock in the morning. As cool as it is to watch the floor waxer guys bop along the ailse, I would have preferred to sleep in a little more.
AND GOSH DARN IT, I forgot my lunch this morning too on my way out. DX It suuuucked. ;~; I had to buy a lunchable just so I would have something cheap because my current monetary claim is $4. I also forgot my cream puffs as well. *sniff* Luckily, they were in the fridge when I left, so they won't dry out too fast. Maybe they'll still be good when I get back next week? Maybe?
Speaking of Nationals, I managed to get thrice as many points yesterday during practice than I normally do. ^^ I was extremely proud of myself for that. Especially since one of them was "xkcd". XD
Also, my Asian Philosphical Calendar Thingy... (shut-up) bas been giving me some awesome quotes lately. They've managed to spin off about a ka-gillion new ideas for HP plots. XD
♠ What is evil but good tortured by its own hunger and thirst?
I mean really, does no one else see the TMR sloughed all over that line?
♠ Freedom is a state of mind-not freedom from something.
Harry and his being manipulated by Dumbledore anyone?
♠ Amoung the most remarkable features characterizing Zen, we find these: spirituality, directness of expression, disregard of form or conventionalism, and frequently an almost wanton delight in going astray from respectability.
Sirius Black! "an almost wanton delight in going astray" fits him perfectly. Hmmm, Cait needs to read this one, it might help her in NR.
♠ We do not learn by experience, but by our capacity for experience.
Idk on this one, it's just awesome!
♠ As one lamp serves to dispel a thousand years of darkness, so one flash of wisdom destroys ten thousand years of ignorance.
Totally epic quote that would serve as a great 'Harry learns the truth and comes back stronger than expected' story.
Hmm, I still have half an hour before we leave. Guess I better go get started on my HIS midterm so the team won't yell at me on the trip down. (I totally have a DC adaptor for my laptop though so I can work on it during the 5 hour+ trip)
As a parting gift, I leave you with a snippet of the rough copy of the beginning of Ghosts of the Past,
a Naruto fanfic I've been steadily chipping away at in my free time. ( Ghosts of the Past Prologue Part I ♥ )
If anyone wants to read/see more, I'll explain more about it.
Till next week (or earlier if I slack off and sneak back over here ;P), I hope you enjoy the snippet! And wish me luck at Nationals if you care to please! ♥
