My final begins in exactly 7 hours and 2 minutes. And I'm not done with these damn definitions yet!!

But I'm close, so I figured I'd post before going to bed, because I'm crashing immediately after finishing these fucking things, if not sooner.

I'm sure I had something very insightful or witty to say here, but it's *poofgone* along with my mind at this point. Apparently I'll be studying for Calculus from 9:45 until 1:45 (the time I'll have between the finals). Then I'd like to nap, but tomorrow a 6 there is a Physics review session...and I'm going to need that. So I really don't know when I'm going to do my English essay prep. Hmm...that's a good question.

Oh yes, and a very happy birthday to Mr. Fatone, Mr. Wood, and apparently Mr. Carter also. *nods*

1 Down, 4 to go

I finished the History terms thing at 2AM. 13 fucking hours on those. Which means that I only got 5 and a half hours of sleep last night.

And my history final this morning? I got a 69. With the curve, and A is 68. It was so easy it's not even funny. I had 40 minutes left at the end. I spent less time taking the test than I did sitting, bored out of my mind.

So I tried to take a nap. I never seem to have a problem falling asleep in class...but of course, I never did after the final.

So now I'm going to take a nap. I'm exhausted and am cramping really bad. It's not the right time of the month for this shit. Blah. I'm setting an alarm, so that I'll have an hour to study for Calculus before I go fail that.

But yay for an A on the final, I guess.

OH! And a very wonderful birthday to Paula *hugs* I hope you have a fabulous day.

The nap thing didn't work.

But I laid down for about an hour. I'm now a bit more relaxed, and feeling better after taking some Excedrin earlier. I'm still pretty blah though.

I think I'll make myself some lunch and then study for Calculus.

I'll update after that final...I'm sure...

Eh, why not?

Well, I have about 15 or 20 minutes before I have to leave for my next final. *sigh* I studied. And I guess I get most of it. I still don't understand the Mean Value Theorem, nor could I state the definition of a limit to save my life, but I think I can work with most of the concepts.

Cici - I don't know if I mentioned it, but I have a poster for you. It was Amanda's and it's Beauty and the Beast, so I figured (because I already have 3 posters waiting for new wall space to magically appear) that I would let you take a look at it.

You people must love me when I'm not in school all day. I've posted about seven billion times. I definitely think the best was the vegan eating twinkees one.

I'm in a slightly better mood, if you couldn't tell. I'm sure I'll be a mega-bitch later when I get back, but hey, for now I'm in control of my mood.

I hate being sick...just for the record. When I'm alone in the house, I enjoy singing OBSCENELY loud...and I was trying to sing with Alanis (the really good hidden song on Jagged Little Pill - "Would you forgive me love..." etc.) and my voice was so strained and cracking. It was sad.

Speaking of singing...17 days until I leave for LA. Fucking cool, huh?

*sighs* I need to learn how to relax. That is all.

Yet another update on the exciting life of little Miss Gail Marie...

I took my Calculus final. Um...it sucked. Significantly worse than I had expected. Blargermuffins. Or whatever it was I said a couple days ago.

It actually was a little of what I expected. I mean, it was just like the format of his tests. But his tests are never in the same format as the book. So when he expects us to teach ourselves from the book...and I do..then I get screwed over because he presents the material differently.

Now I remember why I didn't like Geometry.

Afterwards, Nikki and I went to visit Eric for a bit, then went to dinner at Panera. We basically just sat and talked for an hour and a half. True, I should have come home to start my English essay crap that I somehow have to do before 12:20 tomorrow. And I have to go to the Physics review thing in about 25 minutes. God only knows how long I'll be there.

But anyway, Nikki and I talked, which was nice because I feel like I never see her anymore. And I complained a bit about Caitlin (surprise, surprise...I swear I'll get around to telling the story eventually), and we talked about classes and next year, and beyond that. There were some other people at Panera that we knew. One guy, Ben, who I completely adore. He's fun and cute and a very nice kid. He was in my English class last year and I haven't talked to him since then. But I got to a little today (did I mention he was cute??) Anywho, that was nice. Then a bunch of them left, and it was just this guy George that I've known since Freshman year. He's a nice guy, but kinda eh. He was waiting for one of his friends or something, so he came over and we were talking with him for about 20 minutes.

I love having discussions with people who I don't usually see. And since I've gotten past that whole awkwardness and self-consciousness, it's a lot of fun. For the record, I look like crap today. Black stretchy pants (comfy), dark gray shelf-bra tank (comfy), light gray Ron Jon's Surf Shop hoodie sweatshirt (comfy), hair in a bun (hastle-free), very little make up (easier), and my tennis shoes that don't go with the black pants (comfy). Finals week is all about being comfy and not caring. It's fun. So anyway, I looked like crap, and didn't think twice about it while talking to them.

I'm definitely in a good mood right now. Whee. Okay, I'm gonna get ready to go discuss physics. My idea of a fun evening. *SARCASM*

Have I mentioned that I'm fucking excited that after tomorrow I will never have to think about physics for the rest of my life? *sigh of relief*

The Good, the Bad and the Eh...

Well, I was really bouncy earlier. Hyper beyond belief. Then after about two hours in the damn physics review session (which helped NOT AT ALL), I hit a low. Very low low. It was blah. I got home, and after a little bit started to feel better. So now I'm at about "fine". Not good, not bad, just here...and plugging on through my work.

I made my physics note cards and will now be starting on my English essay preparation. *sighs*
Countdown to Physics Final: 12 hours, 29 minutes.
Countdown to English Final: 14 hours, 29 minutes.

*sigh* My goal is to be in bed by midnight. Any bets? If I were you, I wouldn't be placing money on that early.
