BEDA Installment Twenty-Seven: In which the weather contributes to an overabundance of homework

April 27, 2009

It was hot yesterday and the day before. I’ve mentioned that, many times, in fact. What I have not mentioned, however, is that this heat has had an unfortunate consquence on my school workload. It was inevitable, I suppose. Of course the teachers would want to add to the horrifyingly bad weather with a storm of work. I have received more work today than the whole of the work I have received for over a week of the recent past days. Not only did I get a large amount of math problems (never fun), but my Biology teacher also gave us a humongous project involving creating a colossal brochure (twenty-six inches by thirty-two inches) featuring a tour of the human systems. Think The Magic School Bus, but with ten times the vocabulary and information, swarming at you like a speeding silver bullet. This is even what with the brochure being a group project, a group OF THREE project. I’ve been working on it all for ages and I’m still not an ounce of the pound done.

Still, regardless of the above, I am in a positively splendid mood. There are only two days until my birthday, just in case I haven’t stressed the date enough (I know I’ve done that overly so). My nerves are all atingle with the prospect of turning SIXTEEN. Four years and I’ll be twenty. That’s TWO DECADES OLD.

Tomorrow I’m going to the library with Courtney. She asked if I wanted to go BEFORE I EVEN ASKED HER about it, which I was meaning to since I won’t be going on Wednesday (because of MY BIRTHDAY!!! sorry… I’m still elated). I have books to return!

Speaking of books, I’m pretty far in with A Girl named Zippy. It’s moderately good, and lighthearted, always a plus.

Grr, I feel like the hot weather is spoiling my last BEDA posts, turning them into MUSH.

I AM practically done witht my second plastic bag bag.

And now, and now, and now, I bid you farewell. Sorry about being so boring. I’ll try really hard to remember to write some stuff down during Photography. That’s bound to be more interesting than what I’m writing in this stove-like state.

Question Twenty-seven: If you had a balloon right now, what color would you want it to be?

EDIT: One of my BEDA buddies, Katie (http://thiscrackeddarkness.wordpress.com/) proposed a challenge (with a prize!) for our “group” of BEDA buddies. This involves creating a fake band name, album cover, and whatever else and including it in either today’s or tomorrow’s post. I just made mine, and here it is!!!:

“Teeny Koala Philosophies” is an anagram of our names (Katie, Hope, Allyson, Sophie).

Tired

December 3, 2008

I’ve been exceedingly tired lately, especially during fourth block, AP Euro, enough that I’ve fallen asleep nearly every single day for about 15 minutes, so I’m going to sleep about 45 minutes earlier than usual tonight.

That is all, my friendly fiends.  I love you all.

P.S. Does anybody have any book recommendations? I haven’t read much of anything lately.

I am so tired. I am risking my sleep habits being forever changed by just writing this post.

Okay, not really, but I am extremely tired.  I went to Eleanor’s sleepover and ended up getting no sleep whatsoever.  Not even a minute or two.  I stayed up all night.  It was crazy fun, but I am soooo tired and am going to bed.

More to come later, when I am awake.

By the way, the present I gave Eleanor was this Black Knight plushie:

with removable arms and legs, just like the one in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.  It is great.

Good night, er, good morning.  Bye.

Well, what do you know, it is Wednesday again already. The year is flying by like there is no tomorrow.

I went to Giant twice today: once during the Wednesday Club where I purchased dragon fruit vitamin water. It was delicious. The other time was after, when my father called me and said he was at the Giant, which is right next to the library where we were, and that I should walk over there. I did so, after depositing my backpack, bag, and bag stuffed with books in the car. I checked out twenty-five books, you know. Instead of returning them in two weeks, I am probably going to take the full three weeks to read them. During the second time to Giant, I bought four bottles of SoBe Life Water, because I love flavored waters very much. These flavored waters are made with vitamins and herbs, which is pretty jokes. I bought it in Blackberry Grape, Pomegranate Cherry, Orange Tangerine, and Passionfruit Citrus. I drank some of the Orange Tangerine flavor and it is quite delicious.

Oh yeah, before returning my books I finished reading Hitler Youth. It was as depressing as one would expect it to be.

I continued my one hundred percent streak on vocabulary quizzes and we received the new list of words. They are simpler than ever before.

The first book I started on, which I am already about halfway through with, is titled Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge and is all about mnemonic devices. There are a few for the names of the presidents and I am going to be paying very close attention (and reading, and rereading) those ones.

Unfortunately, Valerie was not able to come to the Wednesday Club. Well, she was going to come late, but she was not able to follow Danya’s hand-drawn map to the library and ended up getting lost and just walking back to the school, where she had band practice soon anyway.

The word of the day is craven, meaning ‘cowardly.’ The holidays, which are devastatingly similar to yesterday’s, are School Nurses Day and National Tourism Day.

The color of the day is a shade of black (grey?) called Davy’s grey and is a greeny grey color.

Hey, did you know that the ‘dragon fruit’ is an actual fruit? I just looked it up.

Oh man, I also just looked up whether it is legal to drive golf carts on streets and, unfortunately, it is not. Where the speed limit is under thirty-five, it is legal, and neighborhoods may be okay- however, I do not really live in a neighborhood. It is more of a highway. There goes my dream of owning a forest green golf cart and driving it to the library whenever I want.

Oh bah, I felt so tired this morning. Luckily I no longer was once Wednesday Club arrived.

My second day of no contractions failed even more so than yesterday, the first. I think it would be best to try my hardest over the weekend so that I am used to it come Monday and school and all.

My good friend Laura, creator of storiesfromahat.wordpress.com, has started updating again after a brief hiatus. Her stories are extremely good- very funny and full of excellent lines- you really should read them.

Well, that is all I have to say. I am off to either read or get started on a wooly scarf I am knitting, made up of many stripes of various lovely colors. Plus I need to take out the trash and recycling and bring the laundry up.

Good night, everybody.
