Alien Invasions and Exams…Same Old, Same Old

I’d have to say that today was fairly normal. There were no alien invasions, terrorist attacks, or cyborg assaults. On the other hand, there were alien cyborgs that got attacked by terrorists while invading earth. But once they got here, they realized that humans weren’t all they were cracked up to be. We turned out to be lying, thieving, selfish scum. So they turned around and left. I think they’ll likely be back with explosives.

Coming back to reality, though, the Accounting and Math exams were pretty much as easy as I expected them to be. I had one difficulty on the Accounting exam, where I couldn’t get two numbers to match, but I think that was a mistake on the part of Mr. G. I think he typed in a wrong number – so I just fudged my numbers a little bit to make them match. Yes, I’m a true accountant. I should get a job at Enron or Worldcom or something.

On the Math exam, I had a couple questions that gave me trouble. There was one of them that I remember doing before and getting the right answer, but I just couldn’t remember how I did it. I sat there for a while trying to figure it out, but as I looked up at the clock and realized that it was 2:00, meaning I could get out of the exam room, I decided that I wasn’t likely going to figure out even with the extra half hour, and I had a bus to catch. So I gave up and handed in my exam. I caught the 2:05 bus, and that was that.

As for anything else to write about, there doesn’t seem to be much selection. Mrs. Houtman already marked all her exams, so I found out that I got 98.5% on it. Not bad; not bad at all. I got one half mark off in one section, and the remainder of the marks off on the stupid essay at the end that had way too much information in the question to make a coherent thesis from. She docked me marks for not having a good thesis, but considering I had six different things to cover from the question, I would have spent an extra hour just trying to come up with a good one. Since I only had about ten minutes to write that exam, I think 11 out of 15 marks isn’t too bad. She’s a first year teacher, though, what can I say?

Tonight is another one of these “Praise Party” things. I’ve really enjoyed the last two; last time, Jon gave his testimony and really said some stuff that hit home to me. Half the stuff he talked about that happened in his life I could change the names and say the same thing about in my own life. It’s strange how people so different and who lived in completely different countries for a while ended up experiencing such similar things – and I suspect we two aren’t the only ones that have. Anyways, with that said, I’m really looking forward to tonight’s Praise Party. I don’t know who’s speaking tonight, but I’m sure it’ll be good. I’m thinking I might just have to talk to Pastor Rob and ask if I can speak one night. Considering I already have a graduation speech coming up tomorrow, though, I may put it off for a little while. After school is finished, perhaps I will.

Anyways, I think I’m done for today. Sorry for the randomness – none of those paragraphs really have anything to do with each other at all. Oh well. If you’ve read my blog for any decent period of time, I guess you’re used to it. I suppose that’s why the thing’s called Disjointed Thinking. So you can’t say I never warned you, I suppose.
