If it makes you feel any better, seniors got our combined score today of ACT testing and the random test we took the day afterward...combined, science and math had "Acedemic warning", and reading and English had "below standards" for me.
Now normally I'd be weeping, but the ACT itself is what actually matters, and I got a decent score on it; I could get into college with the grades I got for it. What this basically told us is if we got a reduced fee on our parking pass, of which I do not have, as I can't drive yet, and the ability to miss up to five days and not have to take finals, and not the normal three [I can hear the "WHAT?!?!?"s right now...yes, they use "miss less than three days and you don't have to take finals" as a bribe since school attendance was hilariously low a few years ago...which makes sense, since our school is bottom of the barrel compared to all the others in the region].
Yeah, if you do fine on the ACT that's all that matters. Augh college. I wish I was a senior. XD My school has the three days no finals thing too, but only if you have an A average. A B gets you two days off, and so on. The attendance is still atrociously low, and our dropout rate must be around 50%....
-Day two done. Whooopee. I actually have less homework today. -I wonder how Blitz is doing as freshie =O -Hope Fushigi's move goes okay! -I need to write a new journal for my Deviantart... -My friend smells shrimp. Interesting. I find this amusing, as she won't eat any seafood except for canned tuna. She won't even eat crabmeat that we had in sushi. It was GOOD too.

Aaaah, but here, you could be bombing all your classes and still not have to take finals.
...Which explains why a bunch of the students, namely, the male ones, never seem to be trying.
Which reminds me of this annoying freshman/sophomore boy that sits behind me in creative foods...our teacher hasn't made a seating chart yet, so we're alphabatized by last name [hence why he's point blank behind me], and GAH the kid is annoying. He sighs constantly, yammers to his friend [extremely audibly at times], and is all-around sarcastic all the time [and not the good kind of sarcastic, like Jade sarcastic, but bad sarcastic, the kind you just wanna beat the living heck out of with your binder and/or other easily grabbable beating device].
This swim practice... was actually not bad. Maybe the coach finally put that under-used pool heater to good use. XD
I hate how there is more than one lunch period in high school. I have like, 2 or 3 friends(and they're more like aquaintances, actually, and in some cases, people who would rather sit with their other friends than with me...) in my lunch period. *sigh* Emo lunch period, here I come... D:

Yeah, normal day in Japanese, teacher promised anime at the end of class if we finished our work early, blah blah blah, second period comes around, we finish our work early, settle down for an anime. Crap. I was expecting something lame like Fruitsbaskets but LUCKY STAR!!? *___* My respect for the substitute Japanese teacher just went up a bit more. =3 Unfortunately, I was the only one who wanted to watch Lucky Star. Japanese has made my day, I don't need to watch anything else today. =D Very happy... need to calm down...
I hope this means that the teacher won't mind if I bring in TMSH to watch. XD

Most people don't talk to n00bs because they display limited intelligence.
If you want to be spoken to start using proper grammar and spelling. Also stop the run on sentences. Use this little thing, he's your friend ---->. His brother is also worth becoming friends with, he's pretty nice --->,
