Thought since I had the time I’d update haha. Afterwards I promise to put my phone back on sleep and study for my psychology test last period! By the way really hoping to get better than the 90 I got on the last test, I’m getting closer to my goal of A+ :D.

Got my report card Friday and I had a pretty good GPA what with all the honor and AP classes. I had about a 4.2 and that’s only because I’m not so sure about the weighted average of an AP class yet so I’m playing it safe and acting as if it is not weighted. My mom seemed semi-pleased though she was really peeved off at the B’s I had in Psych, Government and Physics. Figures I would mess up in my core classes…well not including Psychology and I did have an A in Statistics. Grades aside I still haven’t finished an application to any school yet! I have officially missed the deadline to both Columbia and NYU. Those are early decision but it was what I was hoping I could reach by mid November. It’s a lot to think about right now. I’m studying more than I ever have in my entire life and it’s because I just really want to do well this year and leave a lasting impression on this high school.

My goals for the rest of the year are to pull up all of my grades and get this volunteering Job with HIRED! by the end of the month, hopefully. I need the money and even though it won’t be arriving for a few months the lump sum of it will surely shock me after I put in all the hours. I also have to think about my plans for next year like volunteering and possible jobs. So much to do and it’s seems like it all has to be done by tomorrow.

Happy to be Here

Tonight will be the second time that I’ve seen this man. Around middle-age possibly older, casual clothes, driving a Subaru Forester and stuck with a wheelchair.

The first time I’ll tell you I was really shocked with this man. He came out of our local Kroger’s, in his wheelchair and basically skidded across the parking lot using his feet to get to his car. What!? This guy is in a wheel chair acting like a kid who plays around in any wheelchair they set eyes because it’s hilarious to be stuck in one >.>.

Well anyone he reaches his car and stands up (!) puts his groceries into his car which has an auto-opening trunk (woahzah :D) and then proceeds to put his wheelchair into the trunk. this is the part that makes me wish I had never been staring in the first place. After that span of about 10 mintues from when the man left the store until he put that wheelchair away my “secret show” (I am a terrible person T_T) starts walking. At first, I was like wth is wrong with him right, and then it guts me and I feel terrible for sitting in my cqar and guffawing at what I thought was some ridiculous lazy dude.

After I fully realised what my reaction had been I could only continue sitting there silently apologizing and questioning whether or not .I always reacted this way. Me! The one who is always arguing with her mother about being judgemental and not giving people a chance to present themselves. I really wanted to develope that part of me to be immune to the differences in other people. It was all aprt of my master plan of reaching enlightenment and self righteousness. You have to work hard to step out of common human reality and adopt I want to say a moral aloofness if that makes sense.

Seeing that man for the second time I felt better than I thought I would. Again sitting in my car in the Kroger’s parking lot I watched him pull up to his car in his foot-drawn wheelchair and unpack. I smiled like I was in an actual conversation with an old friend. Weird how the mind works right? I don’t think I’ll ever learn his name but I hope it’s something like Paul or Randy. I don’t know he looks like that type of guy. I’m happy I kind of met him :D.

Physics

leave a comment »

The reason I am sitting in Physics acting like I have nothing to do is because I really have nothing to do! D:.>.

The part that makes me the most angry is that there are a few guys in here who are dumb as a door knob and they have As while I’m stuck with the B! Yes I know I’m whining but really I get in a raging hormonal mood when I get suckish grades. It’s not entirely my fault I swear it must be genetic since my mother can really blow her dreads off when she’s angry.

I had something to do which was to complete a lab that we had done in our last block, but I’m done now and so is a good percentage of our class yet we still sit here and do nothing. My physis teacher just doesn’t know how to pace himself or the rest of his class he’ll just talk for a long string of time and then get silent and we’re left staring like wth just happened. And I know nobody gets what’s going on!

Why does this always happen? Why is America so lacking in capable and reliable science teachers? I want to be a biology major how will I ever make it into a good school with what they’re offering at these public schools? No more questions I’m going to stare at this guy for the rest of the period.

It’s November. I’m knee deep in college applications and SAT schedules. My first crack at the SAT back in the beginning of October didn’t go off so great. Out of that 1600 scale I got a 1210 D:. Why me!!!? I wanted to score really high to impress the ultra-competitve schools I am currently applying to – without having to study or devoting anytime whatsoever. The most upsetting part about all this is that I don’t have another chance to take the reasoning test over. I actually missed the deadline for the November 7th SAT. Yeah that does mean I have the beginning of December to take it before all deadlines on January 1st but I never considered having to take SAT 2s – or SAT Subject Tests – in order to get into almost any school. It’s very disheartening T_T.
