and is it true / that devils end up like you  
Yeah, ha, the day that we don’t have a typhoon? We get a typhoon day. The day that we do get a typhoon? We’re forced to go to school.

Damn you government for declaring that the winds aren’t “strong enough” to be a typhoon. Grrrrrr.

So yeah, today was not only a hectic school day, but a soaking wet day with winds of 40km/h and lots of umbrella backfiring. Fun stuff. I managed to stay up until 5:45am on the weekend – and I still got hit with insomnia, sigh – and then finished the rest of the EE the next night – again hit with insomnia and woke up thanks to the damn wind – and on the bus. 4,401 words that I’ll have to cut at least 401 words from, but otherwise, done! And though I finished P&P and didn’t mind it nearly as much as, say, House of the Spirits, or Things Fall Apart, turns out that due to some shipment issues we’ll be studying Othello first. Which we covered enough in theater, so.

…Now to focus on theater assignments and the history IA and our teacher is going to murder me tomorrow for not having done anything over the break. 8D

But yeah, being braindead is fun. I don’t have a headache from the lack of sleep, but I have that little pressing thing in my head that’s quite irritating and won’t go away.

Uh, in the meantime, icons:

{75 icons}
[20] The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi - including Gekisou concert images (001-020)
[15] Ouran Koukou Host Club - ouran_lims entries (021-035)
[15] Detective Conan (036-050)
[15] DOGS: Bullets and Carnage (051-065)
[10] Tales of Symphonia (066-075)

( you're your favorite stranger, and we all like to watch )

More to come when my life’s not so boring and my head’s not as dead. And when I, er, tackle my trigonometry calculus applications. Which shouldn’t be as bad as the logarithmic ones because logs suck ass, but…we’ll see. And EE/class/directing stories to come in the locked entries, 'cause yeah. And I should be working on math right now anyway, so.

Started getting more Tori Amos songs. At first I couldn't really get into half of them, but now that I've listened to them enough, nah, I really like her music and I'm getting used to it. Yay another awesome singer to get music from. XD
our hopes and expectations: sorehead pains
black holes and revelations: she's your cocaine - Tori Amos

Ahahahahahahaha. Number 6 just screams bias.

So I'm taking it, of course. :3

"Trigonometry calculus"...got a "O_o...Okay..." out of me, but "applications"? What're you guys doing in Calc?

Mm...I've heard of Tori Amos, but never listened, I think. Will check it out now after Calc homework.

Ahaha. Hey, it did net me a first place for a reason. :D


You know derivative applications and optimization, right? Yeah, well, we have all of that lovely stuff with logs and trig thrown in. Trig I understand. I was an anomaly last year when I aced trig without knowing how and even Ms. Bailey was all O_o at me. (I mean, getting 95 pre-curved on an IB math test? I went O_o too.) Logs, I don't get, however.

.............I want derivatives to be overrrrrrrrrr.
alkdsgjlkdjg. Sick of screwing up on quizzes and shit.

Since she's sung for so long some of her songs can sound quite different from others, but at least you have a large number to sample from. Crucify's good, as is Precious Things, etc. I'm going to get more this weekend when I can. XD
Raerae00 on October 10th, 2007 01:51 am (UTC)

Derivatives, yes. Applications and optimization? What? That sounds like it belongs in Computer Science, not Calc.

Well...yeah. Trig is easy. XD; (Don't know how it works at your school, but ours pretty much just folded Trig into the PreCalc class and cut down a year.)

What about logs? Derivatives of them?

Mm. Will have time...er...eventually. XD;; Need to get the Early App in to Stanford, and the deadline is November 1st - also known as October 15th, for those of us who are stupid and suicidal. -_-;

(Six days. No break on hw. Go. *twitches*)

You know...real-world application stuff. That's basically it. Don't tell me you guys didn't do that. O_o But it's IB so there are twists and all that crap.

Trig was...really challenging for my classmates. And I don't get why I got it, especially since I didn't get anything else nearly as quickly, but. No, honestly a lot of the stuff we did was pretty bad. *sob*

Yeah, derivatives with logs. ln and e and all that crap and urrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh. Hate. Hatehatehate.

Yes, you are. We've established that both of us are, anyway. But I thought me moreso than you. :O

....? 8D?
Rae: school /sucks/.rae00 on October 10th, 2007 09:10 pm (UTC)
Oh, that. We've got a little of that, but mostly it's taken care of by Johnson. (Or, for the uninitiated: by AP Physics)

Like...what? O_o Worst part of Trig/Precalc I can remember was memorizing half- and double-angle formulas.

XDDD *points at icon*

"Thought"...past tense; great. Are you not applying anywhere early?

No. Not "8D". "8D" jya ne. I have like half a week to finish an entire college app (about half of which will drastically effect my chances of acceptance at all colleges) and in the meantime there's Physics homework due tomorrow, and an essay I've barely started due on Friday, and...

Ah, the joys of IB math. lkjkagk. ...You guys do get application problems in math, right? O_o

Applications. Really brutal applications sometimes. Damn, yeah. And didn't you guys have to be able to do sin/cos formulas and all that crap? That's what always eats up my time on the tests.


I'm not. I don't want Early Decision for any school as Northwestern and Stanford, while my first choices, aren't as much so as they used to be.

...Theater lines, french script, theater set design, directing joy, english world lit draft, TOK presentation, french presentation and test, history test, math test, cellular respiration to a degree that is fucking insane, and...I think that's all of my classes. I hope. :D

*twitches with you*
Raerae00 on October 11th, 2007 11:25 pm (UTC)
Some, yeah. Mostly it's just regular problems thinly disguised. XDD

Naw. All our really brutal applications are in Physics. (And some of those're really brutal. As in, spend-two-hours-on-number-67 type brutal. ¬_¬)

We did and do, but...eh? Sin/cos formulas as in double- and half-angle? A quiz and maybe a little on the chapter test about them in PreCalc, but not much other than that. XD;

Mm. Personally, I pretty much gave up on the decide-between-schools thing. I have that list of 9; unless something drastic happens, that's who I'm applying to. >_>

...Physics (which always takes longer than I think it will), English essay, and double load of Calc homework (for no reason -_-;) all due tomorrow. Never mind colleges and other stuff and the additional work I'll get tomorrow due Monday. Yours is worse than my load, and today really sucks for me. XD;;
