Default This is the perfect day

I am soooo happy today!

Yesterday I had off because of a school meeting where the faculty goes in but the students don't. It got iced over here pretty bad, and both places I was supposed to work for called me and closed early.

Now today I was supposed to have a HUGE AP US test, chapters 23-27.

I studied for about 2.5 hours yesterday and stopped.

Now today I look on my schools homepage and I see that we have a 2 hour delayed opening...

What they do with a two hour delay is shorten ALL the periods from 80 minutes, to about 60 minutes. Which is defiantly not enough time to take 50 M.C test 30 minutes and write a thematic essay 35 minutes.

But the worst part it, we are going to have to take either a suprise shortened test or take it when we come back from break in 10 days.

ohwell, now Im

I had school today..not even a delay! All the schools around us either had no school or had a 2hour delay! But everyone was late getting to school because none of the streets in our 2 towns that go to the highschool were plowed..and then the walkway to the school was still not shoveled..i was like ughh! lol

if we have the class everyday (periods 1, 5, 6, 7) its 53 minutes, but if we drop it (periods 2, 3, 4, 8 and 9) then its 43 minutes..but we only have 8 periods a day eventhough we have 9 all together... i love drop schedules!

lol what do u learn in like 39 mins. its like you sit down and leave. lol thats so short!!

we have 6 periods, 60 mins each. on 'mini' days its 50 but then theres a school assembly thats 60 at the end of the day. honestly i wudnt mind not having lunch and just getting all classes over with to go home early. my schools so boring all we do all lunch hour is sit indoors and gossip. since were not allowed leaving school property.

we have 8 periods that are 42-ish minutes long. i would hate having certain classes for 80 minutes. but i guess the block stuff gives you more time to do homework...

well I still had the test.

and yep we have 80 minute periods, classes are every other day so we get 2 days to do hw.

As soon as I walked in the teachers said go 50 mc and a 35 minute essay in 50 minutes is near impossible. I just barley made it, and did better than I thought I would.



Only one more day until the vacation. 8)
