Studying Math and Superb Movies

Well, I haven’t been able to get onto my blog over the past couple of days, so I’m trying a new approach. There’s a way to email in blog entries so that they’ll update the site automatically. I’ve never tried it before, but I am now. Woohoo! Hooray for trying new things!

Anyways, since the last entry on Friday, there are two main things that I need to talk about. The first thing, is, of course, exams. I wrote my Physics exam yesterday, and I finished off the set with my Geometry exam today. The Physics one wasn’t too bad; it was kind of long, but I suppose exams are supposed to be long. It was basically just a big test, which is good, since some teachers have the idea that exams have to be seven times as hard as any other test. I was finished with perhaps five minutes to spare. After that, I met up with Angelie, and we went over to her house to study math. Actually, we spent very little time studying, but whatever. We went to Wendy’s for lunch, then went over to BCC to settle once and for all whether Jordan’s Honda is puke green or turquoise (which, incidentally, still hasn’t been settled, since she knows I’m right and won’t admit it), then studied for an hour or two. After that, we decided to take a break and went over to the Staats’ house. Melissa had promised me a cookie, so we went to pick it up. Kristy was there, and so we then went and got Frosties from Wendy’s for ourselves and for them. By the time we got back to Angelie’s house, it was pretty much time for me to leave. Anyways, I did help her with a few things I think, so I’ll just have to wait and see whether it actually made a difference or not. In other news, today’s Geometry exam was pretty brutal. It was heavy on the Geometry and very light on the Discrete Mathematics part of it, which is exactly the opposite of what I wished it was. I kind of screwed up a few questions, just because I drew a complete blank as to how to solve it. I still think I did pretty well, though. It wasn’t really long or anything, but just didn’t really cover the topics that I wished it covered, and was totally smothered in the topics that I wished it didn’t touch on at all. Oh well…

The other thing I want to mention is Saturday night. In the middle of studying for Physics and Geometry, Jordan Smith called me up and told me to come to his house. I debated it, but then decided to go. When I told my mom, however, she didn’t look very pleased, since it would cut out of my studying time. So then I felt bad and called Jordan back to tell him that I wasn’t going to come; Melissa then grabbed the phone out of his hand and told me to come. I ran out of excuses, and so I decided, well, what the heck – I might as well go. I got there, and then we decided to make a movie. It was called ICS: Investigation of the Crime Scene – of course, a cheap, low-budget rip-off of CSI – and involved a deep, intricately-twisted plot that stumped the mind and incited fear and terror in the heart. Something like that, anyway. Basically, I was married to Erica, but I got involved in some drug deals and such with Melissa. Erica was worried and also angry that I was leaving her at home alone with little Becky all the time, so she hired a private investigator, Jordan, to follow me around. Anyways, there was a drug deal that went bad, and then I came home and Erica kicked me out of the house. Life was going downhill for me quite quickly, and in a dramatic scene, an anonymous hand holding a gun fires a bullet straight into my chest. The ICS team comes along and investigates, and the action heats up as they attempt to discover the murderer. Anyways, that’s all I’ll say about the plot, because I don’t want to give it away if anyone ever actually sees it. The part I think I like best about it, though, is the fact that throughout the entire movie, I’m wearing these rainbow-coloured woolen mittens. It’s great. Even when I’m in the morgue, laying dead on the table, I’m wearing these mittens. I’m not sure that you ever see them in that scene, but whatever. Of course, there was also the cheap ketchup effect to simulate blood. It was truly wonderful – a masterpiece of filmography.

Anyways, I think that’s all that I have to say. I really hope this email thing works, because otherwise I’ll have written this entire thing for nothing. I suppose I should save it beforehand, so that I can at least salvage it if it doesn’t go through. But anyways, right now I’m just glad to be done exams, and especially glad to be done Geometry – forever! It’s a great feeling. It’s not that I hated Mr. Suominen or anything; I really liked him as a teacher. I just didn’t like the course and how completely random it was. It dealt with everything from congruent triangles to permutations of letter arrangements to the intersection of three planes in 3-dimensional space. It’s all over the place, really. But now I’m done, and that’s all that matters. So with that pleasant thought, I leave you to have a wonderful day.

one sentance.. one tiny, barely noticable sentence about the AMAZING cookie i made for you. and not only was there one cookie.. there was TWO of them. pfff.. see if i ever give you any cookies again. jeeze.. those cookies deserved a whole blog entry. i’m pretty sure they were the best cookies EVER!

Jeff

Meh…they were edible.

Haha I’m just joking. They were wonderful cookies, and I thank you very much for the great privilege of eating them. Although, I gave one to Angelie since I made her go to the other side of town to pick them up. And then Kristy and Holly made more cookies, and they were baked with love. Yeah, that’s right – baked with love, so they tasted better.

Actually, I didn’t even have one of theirs…but oh well.
