Adventures of the Grade 12 Class

I don’t even know where to begin to talk about today. It was kind of a crazy day, and I wish I could have been 100% awake to enjoy it. It was one of the best school days there’s been in a while; let’s just put it that way. The first part of the day was pretty average, with a Math test that wasn’t too hard and then Accounting class – more droning on about accounting for bonds payable. I wish we could just get on with it already. Anyways, lunch is where the real fun began.

On Wednesday, the Grade 12s were supposed to go to the library for Biology class, but Mrs. Houtman’s car broke down, so she couldn’t make it into school. So that trip got rescheduled for today. Once lunch started, Mrs. Houtman got us into her car and drove us to West Garden Buffet. It was only $5.99 for the buffet – a pretty sweet deal if you ask me. We ate there, with myself having two platefuls and stuffing myself up nice and plump. After that, we went to the library and asked the librarian about bovine somatotropin – a growth hormone for cows that has some controversy surrounding it, etc. She showed us how to do searches on the computer, but she spelled the name wrong and so she only came up with 1 result. After she left, I typed it in correctly and got over 120 results. So she wasn’t much help. Anyways, we still didn’t do much for that class, since we couldn’t really find any books, and all the articles we read either said it was beneficial or that it was harmful. They weren’t much help in giving a definitive answer.

After the library, we went back to Tim Horton’s and tried to decide what side we were going to be on. I’m not sure whether we really decided anything, but I think we were leaning towards being in favour of the hormone, as long as milk and beef products were correctly labeled as to whether they used the hormone. Whatever. None of us cared all that much anyways.

We got back to school and then remembered we had a racquetball quiz for Phys. Ed. That was okay, though, because we never got to it. Mr. G got to talking about the upcoming ski trip (I can’t wait!) and by the time he was done with that, there was only about five minutes left. He had to weigh us and measure our height, because he needed the information for today. That was a little weird, but oh well. He had a scale and a metre stick, and called us into the next room one by one to do that. It’s not like it really has to be that accurate anyway, but whatever. But we really didn’t do that much in Gym class, so that was good. The last half of the day was awesome.

That’s all I really have to say. I should likely put in some witty remark here, but alas, I’m all out of those. Actually, I’m not sure that I ever really had any, although I certainly like to think that I do. Whatever. Expect a nice, wonderful blog entry tomorrow.
