I started teaching today. My classes look pretty good so far. Except I got mean-mugged in 7th hour.

My friend made me a beautiful messenger bag for college. She cut up an old paisly shirt and used it for the lining.

I dropped out of high school last year and now spend all my time eating, fapping, and internetting in my mother's basement.

sadly, i was supposed to begin my fifth and final year of chinese medicine school in a few days, but won't be able to afford the tuition. :(
it's not that terrible, because i will eventually finish and the first four years have qualified me as a chinese medicine practitioner, so i have the full scope of practice of acupuncture and chinese herbal prescriptions, but until my fifth year is done, i won't have that elusive 'dr.' title.

My classes all seem really boring. But none of them seem like they're gonna be too much work. I'm also living in a house this year instead of dorms, it owns (except for not having any food).

Yeah. It's when someone makes their mug look mean, and looks at you with it.

Actually though, it turns out that's just how that girl looks.

My classes turned out pretty cool. I've got good teachers this semester, and people I know in every class.

I've been back for a week now, but classes haven't started yet. Things have been pretty good. I'm worried that I've got a little bit too much on my plate this semester, though.

FUCK.
I just checked the syllabus for what was supposed to be my "easy" class and I have a 1.5 page paper due every week, two 8-10 page papers for midterms and a 12-14 page final paper, not to mention about 100 pages of reading every week. Now I'm 100% sure that I'm going to have too much on my plate.

I have to read Huck Finn and Things They Carried by Tuesday.
Can you believe Huckleberry Finn is considered an appropriate book for an 11th grade AP literature class?

I have quite a bit left. If I was to do work for my french class, I'd have a shitload left.

I was supposed to read/summarize in chapters 4 books in all for english, write ten installments about evolution, summerize 5 chapters, and answer a packet of questions for biology, Read two books for history, keep a journal [in french] of current events and do a litany of exercizes for french.

I did the history, read of two of the books for english (am going to spark note the other two) Did the biology (half assed, but did it all the same). When I went to move on to the french I realized I no longer had the sheet that said what I was supposed to do; it's no where online and there are only 4 other kids taking french next year and none of them was in any rush to relay all the info to me (assholes). So I'd say I'm about. 58% done?

It's utterly ridiculous. I read the book on my own in 8th grade, and the fact that they consider it Advanced Reading for 11th graders is just pathetic.

Yeah- Twain's prose is pretty straightforward and any seventh grader is capable of reading and understanding the story, but there's a shit lot of subtle humor and commentary that they'll miss. I read it when I was younger and then again with my 10th grade English class. Guess which time I enjoyed it more?

i should drop french but i really want to learn the language.
today was my first day and i have never taken french a day in my life. i walked in and the teacher taught in french.
yikes!

luckily she would point to stuff she was talking about.

i have my first Folk Music in the US class tomorrow, i'm super excited about that one.
