Carnival Freedom - Feb 14, 09
 
(and this is my first post)

Hey -- just seeing how many of yall are going to be on the cruise in february.

We'll be coming from GA (im the only one thats a teen tho)

im 16 (turning 17 in April)

and hoping it wont be a bust with me being the only person in O2.
This will be my...hmm.. 4th cruise i think.

dancetilyadropx3 December 15th, 2008 05:12 PM

im not going
but its over valentines day how cute!

Rawr Man December 15th, 2008 05:38 PM

yea.
my parents have a knack for always pickin a cruise around that time in Feb.


the first one ( i think it was on the Glory) was super lame.
i dont think O2 was actually on that ship though. just a dance floor in the arcade. Was only about 4 people worth hangin out with. Everyone else (the other 8) just cabin hopped.

the next year - same week. it got wayy better. club was nice. our gruop of 12 was coo. still talk to them today (was back in 07) This was on the imagination

and my third one (which was the last one) was on the Destiny and... pffttt it definitely was the best one yet. it was in the summer though but its a week i still have after effects from. It was a great ship. ALOT of teens (maybe near 200 i think it was) Great O2 Director / DJ. Lots of cool people - all was great plus my whole family was there..even though we really didnt hang out - it just made it all the better.

and so im hoping this 4th cruise experience can continue on with my good streak.

Yeah im sure you will have fun! Where does it go?

Turbotw December 16th, 2008 12:44 PM

Carnival Freedom will be hoppin' with teens on that date.... but you will mostly be with Yankee's...

The northern kids all have a "winter-break" for a week around that date so alot of them choose to cruise. Some GA counties have a break--mine did (Fayette)--but most don't around the south. So expect to hear alot of accents... :wink:

Have a great time! Feb cruises have been my best, and ALWAYS a good time.

then i guess you like bad girls. hahah

but nahh, im just smart and exempted finals.

jersey_girl_at_heart December 20th, 2008 11:56 AM

Katie - you're exempted from finals??? Lucky..only seniors are exempted and if its a full year class you are only exempted from the final not midterm. And if its half a year then you're excepted from either the midterm or final depending when it is...


Oh hey not fair...I'm still in school...I have a 1/2 day Tuesday! But I had a snow day yesterday because it was horrible out!

KTS1193 December 20th, 2008 01:13 PM

ours is.

If you have an A in the class you can miss 4 days a quarter.
If you have a B you can miss 2 days a quarter.
If you have a C you have to have perfect attendance.

F- You gotta take it.

same here. we have a long christmas break this year. and a week off in february as well as a week off in april.

jersey_girl_at_heart December 21st, 2008 07:57 PM

New Jersey schools suck...we always have the least amount of days off! And this year they took away our February break. I'm so sad..they said we would get out earlier...but um we don't. But now my school doesn't allow us to carry jackets or any type of drink around. Luckily I only have like 6 more months in this school...

Is there a limit to how many exams you can exempt? And are you allowed to exempt AP classes?

When I was in high school we were allowed to exempt a maximum of two exams if we had a 95 or higher in those classes. And we weren't allowed to exempt the winter exams of AP classes.

We can exempt all 4 of our exams(we have block scheduling). We do have to take post tests and EOCTs though.. but those dont count as finals. Well some teachers are nice and DO count those as the final so then you dont have to come on the "Finals Testing Days". For AP, we have a post test but its not like a hard AP test its basically the test they give to everyone, even the not so smart people.

Zach17 December 22nd, 2008 10:09 PM

dang, we can exhimpt any class we have a 90 or higher, but if oyu have a failing grade, they can boost it haha i dont but just sayin LOL

c_m_alex December 23rd, 2008 10:44 PM

in my school, only juniors and seniors are exempt but only if they have an A. but if you're in AP, you still have to take all the AP tests. so that part stinks...
