AP Government homework

So, I'm supposed to be doing some AP Gov homework. It's on the State of the Union. Last week was exam week, and our teacher assigned it to us.


I was supposed to watch the State of the Union Address instead of studying for my other exams. No way in hell. I needed to study for the rest of my exams. The good news is that it's due on Wednesday. I just don't wanna do it. Good thing for YouTube, I can find the State of the Union there.

The homework assignment is to watch the State of the Union and ALSO the Republican response. It's a packet, also. That's the worst part. It's a two page packet, both front and back. Counts as a quiz grade.

It's my senior year. The year is half way over. I'm done doing work...

I'm really not. I still have to do it. I can't tank my grades. Ugh.

My day today was good. My tennis lesson turned out pretty good. I went out and got a hair cut, and ordered a new pair of Vans. Can't wait to get em!

Six hours of sleep

Damn, six hours of sleep. That really sucks. Good news is, that I dont NEED a lot of sleep. Even though it is NICE to have. I'm not a grouch or anything if I only get six hours. Just don't wake me up in REM! For those who don't know what REM is:

REM sleep is a normal stage of sleep characterized by the rapid movement of the eyes (wikipedia).
The most important thing about REM is that it's the stage of sleep where you get the rejuvenating feeling from when you wake up. When someone is awaken from REM sleep, they are grouchy :P

That is probably the only thing I learned in psychology is sleep.. It's what I'm doing every class.

The thing I love to do most, is wake up and listen to some upbeat or cool music. Right now I'm listening to Jimmy Eat World - Just Watch The Fireworks. I listen to this song CONSTANTLY. At least five times a day or more. It's just a great song to wake up to. A slow beat, but upbeat enough to get ready to take on your day.

I have a tennis lesson today in two hours. Tennis season for high school is right around the corner and I can't wait to it to kick off. Tennis season is really great because:
  1. Our school has a great group of kids who play. We all know each other and have known each other for years now.
  2. Travel. We go to all reaches of Virginia to play tennis. The only thing that sucks is when we have to go like five hours for an awful team. That has happened before.
  3. We get out of school, early, a lot. We'll cut our school day by almost half to go play matches. This helps senior year.
Time for me to get ready and go eat some eggs. I love scrambled eggs!

Cant sleep.

Damn. I can't sleep. Thankfully, it's a three day weekend. Today I have the day off! I think I'm going to grab a nice glass of milk and watch a movie. Movies always keep me entertained.. and sleepy.

My favorite movie has to be The Dark Knight. Heath Ledger just did a fabulous job as being the Joker. Definitely better than the original Batman movies.

Another movie I really like is Gran Torino. My favorite actor has to be Clint Eastwood. Hands down. He made great westerns in his earlier careers and now he produces and acts in great movies. I haven't seen Invictus yet. Definitely need to.

I also need a good list of movies.. Need to start making a collection to call my own!
That's all for now.. Hopefully I fall asleep on the couch.

Keep on truckin'

I feel sometimes, I just work a bit too hard. You know, I feel that even with taking an AP Class and an Honors class my senior year, It's not easy. Specially with the fact my physics teacher isn't the best, that can pretty much make itself an honors class.

My schedule is simple. AP Government (Poor choice by me), Math Analysis (Honors..), Woodshop (Joke), Physics (not so much a joke...), Psychology (Joke), and English 12 (HUGE JOKE)

AP Government, Math Analysis, and Physics take up most of my life, except for tennis, gaming, and chilling with friends. The workload for my senior year, is a drag. I constantly have AP Government and Math Analysis homework. Every school day I get an assignment for those classes, and even I get homework which takes up to three hours total for homework. I get no free time on the week days. Thank God for weekends.

But, you got to keep going. Just gotta keep working hard. I wanna go to a great college, work my ass off, party a lot, and kick off my life. High school has prisoned me in the fact I cant expand myself due to constant pampering of teachers and idiotic adolescents. My dream is being successful in a big business one day. To make that happen, just gotta roll along and keep on truckin'. Even though I hate trucks, the term is still nice.

Even though this trick looks pretty nice.. still hate them

Keep on truckin'....
