SO MANY FANCY KNOTS
Seriously, if I had a pair of skates glued to my feet and I had to flee from a collapsing bridge, I would probably try to get away, fall to the ground, then fall with the bridge.
I must've fallen five times or so. Three of those were consecutive, from me trying to get back up.
It's going to be a long week. e.e
Unlike most other people, I have my finals in two days as opposed to before Christmas, so teachers are cramming. Which means homework. Add Science Olympiad into that and you've got yourself a negative amount of free time!
I think it's taken a toll on my sanity.
However, that being said, I have almost no time to do anything but school. Which means that, unfortunately, Alpha 0.0.1 of Operation Rally will be pushed back. As for how far back, I can't really say. After finals, I've got an elongated weekend, so maybe some progress will happen there and things will be back on track? I dunno. SciO is at a higher priority than the game right now, but I usually have a lot of downtime during competitions.
I'll get back to work soon, I promise.
I got my PLAN back today, and I was mildly disappointed in my score. It is a 25 out of 32. Predicted to score a 27-31 on the ACT.
Now, I'm not exactly sure how good that is, since my school is weird. Almost everyone I know talks about their GPA and scores and academic stuff. And I'm not joking when I say almost everyone. Literally, almost everyone. =P
But yeah. Personally, I kinda wish that the score was higher, but oh well.
Our team had our first invite of the year today. It didn't not start off well. We only won in one event. =( I think that's going to really kill some spirit, but it might be motivational.
Though, on the plus side, we got to see our favorite Physics teacher again. =) He transferred schools at the end of last year and he's working for the invite school now. It was great. He showed us a bunch of stuff, including this random trap door cellar thing in one room; literally, you open up a tile on the floor, and you get to this huge underground room that's filled with random stuff. Apparently, nobody's gone down there for years.
Plus, we couldn't see the end of the wall with a flashlight poking our heads through, so maybe it's a good thing.
Basically, you go around identifying leaves and answering questions about them.
Yes, it's as awful as it sounds. But I've been taking online quizzes and finally got my highest score so far, a 65%! =D
I will have a partner for the actual event, so hopefully she's got her stuff in order. Because this is one of the more ridiculous events.
- Witty shirts for my parents and cousins.
- Plush Peashooter that shoots a pea from Plants v. Zombie for my brother.
- A plush talking Turret from Portal 2 for my sister.
I was hoping to save a lot of money to eventually buy myself a nice new Cannonball Sax, but it's Christmas.
This isn't some measly task, it involves testing. Lots and lots of testing and preparations. Actually, we only have six hours to finish, because one day is a Pep Band day.
If any of you guys have had experience with SciO, I'd love to hear about it.
Anyway, in news of my next two years of High School, I showed my planned schedule to my counselor and asked if it was a good idea for me to fill with AP classes. She said it was fine, but I'm still worried, since I'm taking two of the hardest AP classes offered at the same time, plus marching band, pep band, and Science Olympiad.
Here's hoping I don't work myself to death!
I'll also start posting the Happy Whatever Day stuff earlier in the morning, so it's not two blog entries one after another, like it is now.
