I disappeared off the face of this earth for a few months. I haven't posted since August of last year... scary. It seems so long ago that summer had fallen over the land. I've been keeping busy, no worries about that; I'm a different person now than I was then, I think.
School is going absolutely swimmingly; I actually like it. I'm getting good grades, A's in pretty much everything except Biology. Totally boring. I'm not going to be a scientist or doctor or anything when I grow up, so it won't matter too much if I have a B+ in the class. My Earth and Space teacher last year talked me into taking Biology Honors because she said I had an aptitude for science. The difference was that I had a liking for some of the topics discussed in Earth and Space, and the teacher was excellent. This year, we talk about tiny things that are hard so small they are beyond my comprehension, and we take a million vocab quizzes and do lots and lots of busywork, worksheets and the like. We just finished talking about genetics a little and the possibilities that the future holds with that, as seen and dramaticized in the movie Gattaca, and that was really interesting. I like thinking about the future and how we what we do now affects it. But all the names of processes and things like that... that's why I don't like it. :/
I love my history class, though. It's my favorite class of all. School starts at 7:20 a.m., and World History is my first class. While everyone else is still dead tired and trying to wake up, I'm raising my hand and answering almost every question. It's great fun... although right now we are studying the Industrial Revolution, and I have studied that already in eighth grade... so it's a little boring at the moment. I've gotten a lot better at writing essays because of that class though.
High school is pretty easy right now. I'm just taking it as it comes. I'm also not letting myself be bogged down by other people's problems, like I did last year and in middle school. It's all palm trees and clear blue water for me right now.
Nothing too eventful is happening right now. I'm preparing for the next NATS competition, once again competing in the musical theatre category. I should do really well this year, now that I know better what to expect and so forth.
Anyway, just thought I'd check in. If I do or see anything worth mentioning, I'll post it and try to be more regular.
But until I write again....
