Welcome to January, the month of midterm preparations. Needless to say, everyone is freaking out. Including me. I'm crazily studying for the exams. I'm especially nervous about my Algebra test. It's worth 1/3 of my grade. :o Since it is technically a high-school class (I'm in the 8th grade, but learning in an advanced class with 9th grade Algebra), the grade I get also counts for my GPA. O_o Needless to say, I'm just a bit worried.
My science homework is also overwhelming. Table of Elements, here I come! Unfortunately, that's the easy stuff... And plus, there's that lurking science fair in a few weeks.
History is unmerciful, I'm cramming so many dates and names into my head I think I'll explode. When, in 'real life', will I ever need to know that Martin Van Buren, 'of Dutch descent', was born in 1782, the son of a tavernkeeper and farmer, in Kinderhook, New York?!?!?
I have loads of homework, and a bunch of tests coming up (not including the actual exams!) Avery is not happy. Sorry, not sure why I'm talking in third person. But yeah, this is why I have not been posting much...
Sorry about the spasm of a post above, as well...
