Made you look! Hehe.
I was bored and saw pleonast when typing in playlist so I thought I'd visit real quick.
Have a WONDERFUL day. :D
School started this month. It seems like I've been in school longer than that though. I've got 4 classes as usual, but one class is a dual enrollment course at the local college.
My first block is U.S. Government and my second block is Sociology. Both classes are so unbelievably easy that, in 30 minutes as opposed to the 3 hours spent daily, I could teach myself from the book the daily material which are taken directly from the book anyway. Anybody could teach themselves at a faster pace than the teacher's pace. Unfortunately, this means I'm bored to tears for about 3 hours of my day. I've given up learning Spanish for now because I really don't have a drive to learn the language on my own. It's not very exciting either.
However, on the topic of excitement, my third block class is calculus and the dual enrollment class is macroeconomics. These two classes may not sound exciting to the average person, but they move at just the right pace and are interesting topics to me. Calculus is pretty cool because I'm furthering my ability to solve more advanced physics problems. All my high school classes are seniors and a couple juniors here and there, but calculus has the best group of people and teacher out of the three classes. Every day after calculus, I get out of school because macroeconomics is a night class on Mondays. Yesterday was the first day that I went to macroeconomics and it was great. The professor is a nice guy with a really funny Indian accent - even when the topic started getting boring, the lecture was still golden. However, the topic was only boring during the extremely obvious parts since it was the first session. If my 1st and 2nd block teachers had Indian accents, I wouldn't mind the pace as much because it would still be enjoyable. There happens to be a Georgia Tech in Ireland. I don't get the name at all. Georgia Tech... Georgia as in a state of America... in Ireland. If I went to the college, I'll bet the boring classes would still sound great. I'll happily endure the boredom over the higher cost though.
After the school days were over, I drove down to Alabama almost every weekend if not every weekend to spend time with good friends there. I'll be headed to Alabama this coming weekend as well. I'm excited as usual because I get to see Sarah again and everybody else too. This weekend (labor day weekend), I'll be heading down for the Smith's singing on Sunday evening. The past weekend, I watched Sarah and Mckenna play volleyball and we ate at chic-fil-a and had a grand ol' time. Two weekends ago, I went down to Alabama for a gospel meeting at Gooch lane and ate at the Mellow Mushroom, a really nice pizza place, with Sarah, Steve, Mckenna, Will, and Emily. I stayed with my Uncle Gary and Aunt Vicki that night and played many good games of ping pong with the master of all things ping and pong, the brotherly cousin, Daniel. I went back up to Tennessee the following afternoon for a Bible study for the young people and volunteered to give the next lesson which is in four more weeks. I've got the lesson planned and finished with the exception of locating the verses that my points are based on. I found several of them, but I'm having difficulty pinpointing the others and I'll finish that up in the coming weeks. The theme of the lesson is goals and the sub-themes are devotion, focus, and priorities.
and so end the records of the scribe, Alex Dvorak, in the nine and two thousandth year in the eighth month.
Thanks for reading. I'll read the comments next month when I add the next monthly update assuming that I remember.
Sir Alex of the House of Dvorak
Apparently, I'm suppose to update more than every six months. However, odds are this will be my only monthly update since I rarely check pleonast. I'll try to do better about that though.
School is coming up close and I'm not sure if I want to buy a single polo yet. I'm thinking about it...
I don't have any super cool classes like physics again, but I'll try my hardest not to sleep through more than 1 of my classes. I really can't make an exception for the morning class. If it's not interesting, I will go to sleep.
It's my birthday and I can cry if I want to. In fact, for all you know, I've cried all day. My 18th birthday is a monumentus day since I am now able to consider more places to apply for work. My new options are so exciting.
Still no luck on getting any of my emails up and running - hopefully, It'll all be back up by August 29th because if it's not, I may not be registered for a class or two.
I'm currently working on my future invitation of "What is your goal?". It's pretty good - got the idea from a book called "Reaching Forward" by Gary Henry. It's a good book. I'd recommend it if you are looking for something to read.
Playing tennis almost every day has really improved my game. I think I'll go pro in a couple months.
I'm about to start back on learning Spanish again any day now. It's really on and off. It's a lack of motivation really. I know I need to learn Spanish, but I feel too lazy right now. I'll try to build up the desire to learn over the next few days and maybe a few hours of study in. If not, I'll be winging Spanish in college which actually doesn't sound too bad as an option right now.
Next update will probably be completely about school and with any luck, where my first job is located.
and thank you everybody for all the happy birthday wishes. :O)
so I just got on and it's a confusing mess. I'm totally confused.
Thanks for reading,
Physics is amazing. At first, we'd ask the questions about what would happen if such and such happened in some environment. Now, the teacher asks us those questions and we are able to answer them. That's an incredible feeling to be able to figure out complicated problems. It's also cool to be able to apply all of the math and science that I've learned. However, the coolest part about physics is knowing that God put so many "details" into creating the Earth.
I received my ACT scores today.
I couldn't be more disappointed. Sure, I need some help with English because I'm no good, but a 30 in math? I thought for sure I'd have a 33 or higher. I flew through the math section without any trouble except with one problem. I must have made some stupid mistakes. I'm simply not impressed with any of my scores. A composite score of 27 makes me feel so dumb and I don't like it. The science section is cramped for time, but I wasn't having any difficulty with it until the 5 minutes was announced and I wasn't close to finishing so a 27 in science is disappointing, but not nearly as depressing as math.
My exams are in one week, but I'll be happy to be done with school for a short while.
As soon as school is over, I'll take Steve down to the basketball court to play several hours a day again.
Hopefully, GCO will come fast and go as slowly as possible because I just don't like how it is the other way around. Fun should last longer.
They cancelled my engineering course and AP Calculus (unconfirmed, but I've been hearing it). That's not cool since those were my substance classes as well as my favorite classes. Most of my other classes belong under 'Picked because of Senioritis,' but I'll rewrite my schedule when they give it to me. I just need to figure out what to take and Spanish is NOT an option. I'll learn that on my own later. Aside from calculus, I've taken all the math courses as well as all the science courses that are worth taking.
There is my post for the next 6 months :P
