What's even better is that Mommy, with her crazy library connections, got the Fremantle Diary for me (I've wanted to read it ever since we read The Killer Angels freshman year). I've barely started it and I already know I'm going to app him for [livejournal.com profile] liberty_flight. That is, if they'll take actual historical figures.

It is seriously the most hysterical book I have read in I-don't-know-how-long. You know how the chapter headings are set up in Going Postal, with the Capitalizations and Brief Summary of each Chapter's Plot? It's actually like that in the diary, except with headings like "I Am Now Comparatively Reconciled to Shaking Hands with Everyone" and "Wild Hogs Breathing in My Face" and (I kid you not) "How Texan Females Take Their Snuff." Oh Fremantle, you tourist you. <3

And now! Back to reading. I'm definitely going to put a post with quotes when I finish. It is the most quotable book ever.

studied all bloody weekend for physics and econ midterms.

blanked out on the third (of three) physics problems. bsed way through half of it. probably made a ridiculous amount of stupid mistakes on the first two.

nerves were already shot by the time econ midterm rolled around. blanked out on half the multiple choice. lucky if i got higher than a c. and i was borderline a in that class before, too.

So. Um. Midterms.

German was pretty good, considering I didn't study that much for it. There were a few annoying questions, and I might've screwed up once or twice on the free response. *shrug* Nothing particularly difficult, though.

Calc...Calc was happy. Like a happy thing. :) And that is all, because I'm scared that if I say any more, all of my answers will shift a letter to the left.

English was not happy. :( My essay was crap (I picked the one on Renaissance poets and their use of time) and there were three or four questions in the multiple choice I wasn't sure about. (I'm vaguely gratified to see that I did indeed get the location of the Tabard Inn right - I guessed that one. xD) But yeah.

And I'm freaking out about Chem and Euro. ;_; I desperately need to relearn equilibrium. And I need to go over my Euro notes again. ARG. I can't wait until Friday.

Okay. Going to stop talking about school now.

I finished my Javert app for Landel's, but I don't know if I'm going to send it in this cycle. (Pathy - do we need to have a character journal created before the app's sent in? I'm not sure how the whole thing works and I don't think it said anything on the info journal, so.) I'm going to see what the Top Ten at VI: TED looks like, first, 'cos I don't want to have to review a Survivor contest and RP at a ridiculously fast pace at the same time. xD It does look promising, though.

So. Finally got the last of my midterm grades back. Here's what I've got.

Subject // Midterm Grade // Second Quarter Grade

American Studies II Honors // 96 // 94
German III // 88 // 97
Chemistry I Honors // 94 // 95
English 10 Honors // 86 // 95
Algebra 3 & Trigonometry Honors // 93 // 96

I'm actually somewhat happy with my German midterm grade, 'cos I barely studied for it. And the English midterm was ridiculously difficult, so while I think I definitely could have written a better essay if I'd gotten, say, five more minutes, I guess I'm okay with it. I'm not really happy with my Chem midterm, either. I made a really stupid mistake and completely left out two equations on the practical, and only remembered after I'd handed it in, and apparently I got five multiple choice questions wrong. And it had seemed really easy, too. *disgruntled*

Bah. I'll do better next time.

Did relatively well on American Studies Midterms, I think. I hope.

Did not do so well on Algebra 3 and Trig. Was incredibly stupid about the first free-response problem and didn't understand how to do it until exactly five minutes before time ran out. Thankfully, I'd skipped it and gotten round to it last. Still, I shudder to think about how I did on it - I know for a fact I got that one wrong, cos I checked it with one of the roots and it came out all wonky instead of equalling zero like it should have. Hopefully I'll get partial credit. Hopefully Mrs. W. will understand my desperate scribbles. And I shudder to think of how many stupid mistakes I must've made.

Midterms Emo:

I am a little green rectangle
On the Scantron sheet of humanity -
But alas, I have no #2 pencil
With which to fill up my soul.

(More to come tomorrow, in which I post conspiracy theories involving 1) Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain and the Phantom of the Opera, and 2) the Bishop of Digne and Rohan.)

Bäh. Ich sollte mein Deutschexamen studieren. Ich habe nicht studiert, und es war sehr schwer.

Ich habe gedacht, dass das Chemieexamen schwieriger wäre, aber es war nicht so. Das Chemieexamen war sehr leicht. Herr Case hat zu uns gesagt, „Es gibt viele 'redox equations' auf der Prüfung." Wir haben in Panik geraten, denn niemand könnte es verstehen.

Heute auf der Prüfung, es gab keine 'redox equations.' Und die Stöchiometrie war sehr, sehr einfach. Ich bin sehr fröhlich.

...Aber das Deutschexamen hat mich geärgert. Ich habe viele Fehlern gemacht. Ich bin blöd. >.<

(Ich denke, dass es gibt viele Fehlern in diesem Journal. Es tut mir Leid.)

So. English exam was okay. It could've been better - I studied the least for this out of all of my exams - but it wasn't that bad. Well - okay, my essay was. That bad, I mean. The conclusion was like three sentences long, and my handwriting started out in its normal relatively neat style and by the end of the paper it was a scribbly mess. :P

But on the second page of the multiple choice, I saw this question: "NECROPHILIA and NECROMANCY both contain a prefix that means:" and then it had a bunch of choices.

Needless to say, it was very, very difficult to not burst out laughing hysterically.

One day more until the midterm
We will nip it in the bud
We'll be ready for those Scantrons
Something something something...blood
