This is not what I wanted

Well, Second Semester is off to an absolutely fantastic start. Two papers in the same weekend, as well as a commentary, a presentation to prepare, and myriad other assignments which all need to be done by tuesday. This is a rather awful way to start out the end of my high school career, but at least the end is in sight. Continue reading


Taking a day off …

Well, I could have gone to school today. It would have been really boring, what with pretty much the entire Senior Class going snow tubing (more on that later), and I was really tired. So, instead, I slept in for four extra hours—sleep I really needed—and had a nice leisurely morning. As I write this, I’m sitting in my favourite coffee shop, just after having eaten a sandwich from the shop next door. Continue reading

A day at the Zoo

Exactly what it sounds like. Well, almost. The actual thing was, all the French classes level 3+ went to the Minnesota Zoo today, so that French 3-4 kids could do presentations on animals, and French 5-6 could just have some fun (something sorely lacking at times.) We decided to have an awkward picture contest, so we found the most awkward situations, and photographed them. Also, we wandered around in the snow, threw snowballs, and had a great time.

On a related note, they overcharge so much for the food, my wallet aches. I think it tried to hæmorrhage cash at one point. Ow.


Ah, finals. Or rather, final. Since there was only one of them. IB English essay on a play by a Nigerian playwright, Wole Soyinka: The Lion and the Jewel. I was rather glad to have bought the Lamy Safari about a week ago; without it, writing an eight-page essay would have involved far more pressure and hand strain. Continue reading


I was going to do homework right away. Suddenly, four dozen cookies appeared. I’m not sure I can really complain, though. After all, it was a way to get away from what I would otherwise be doing (ergo, homework.) Continue reading

Brick Wall

Or, as lots of people fondly call it, Senioritis. Yeah … the major paper of my senior year is done, most of my classes—though not done—are far closer to the « end in sight » stage than they were before, and the first semester is almost out of the way. Suddenly, stuff doesn’t seem to be as rushed or really as important. Yes, keeping up grades is important. But half the time that takes little effort.

Even as an IB Diploma Candidate, I can’t worry too much. Life’s going to be pretty good, time is opening up like a multidimensional flower, folding away in more dimensions than generally I like to think in ( it hurts the brain too much ) and my creativity is returning. I’ve revived the blog, I’ve got a story idea that wants to be written, knitting projects to finish, and cookies to bake ( yay cookies ! )

Since I’ll have some time tomorrow, I’m thinking of baking some chocolate chip cookies to take to school on Wednesday … just because I can. I don’t really see any other specific reason that may be required to bake cookies. After all, they’re wonderful.

In other creative news, I’ve got an almost-half-done Doctor Who scarf. The next colour of yarn is out in the garage, and if I feel like it I’ll go grab the next couple balls later. Also, I’m beginning work on an Irish Fiddle medley to perform for my Orchestra final come spring. That will be fun.
