Today's homework was only math for me, much to my relief. You won't believe how lazy I can get most of the time. But I prefer to say "expedient". (Expedient is an adjective, which means "taking the easy way out", not "lazy". That word is related to Expedia.com, which my teacher says really is "expedient".) Anyhow, I'm just going to kick back and relax today, except for my parents are home. I need to get a Halloween costume thrown together FAST, and then practice some piano. *moans feebly*
The day went by pretty smooth. I am satisfied with my free choice watercolor painting except for where you can see the paint dried weirdly. (It's too late to fix it, since I already turned it in! It was due today) Oh well. But then, I was told it was almost the end of the trimester. Soon I'll moving on to the next part of Applied Arts...I actually like Art, even though a lot of kids say it's their least favorite. I want Woodshop next, and then Cooking. (I'd like to have cooking either in the early morning, or at the end of the day, so I have breakfast or a snack to eat.) I don't know what elective I'm going to take next year...Maybe I'll take a foreign language?
Anyhow, back to my day... (you may have noticed that I am back to normal, not typing weird, but never mind that) I am sure I failed the math quiz, and I am nervous because I didn't see my Illumination on the wall of my history classroom. It makes me worried, since I start thinking negatively (for instance, "WHAT IF MR. BLAIR LOST IT?!?!"). But I will just have to look for it tomorrow. In science, we are doing Animal of the Week again. This time, the animal is the bat. I learned a few things, like bats aren't really blind, and actually lick their babies, like a cat. o_O
Language arts was rather drab except for when Mrs. Jackson started reading the Weighty Words to us again. It's a book full of interesting words that may even help us on our SATs someday. But the words are taught through all sorts of odd stories. For instance, we learned the word laxity through a story about a city called Slack City. The people were very lazy there. The city sign needed to be repainted, but the guy who was supposed to paint it forgot to paint the S, so it said "Lack City", which sounds like the word laxity (meaning laziness, I believe).
