Lucky you. I got the full week off during elementary school and middle school. My high school makes us come on Monday and Tuesday for some reason. Ugh. So many people are absent because they decide to go out of town for the whole week, they might as well give us the full week off.

We don't get a Thanksgiving break, but we do have an annual Thanksgiving dinner at our school and pumpkin and apple pie sale.

Oh, hey, after a week of non-stop work I'm finally done with this stupid ass project. Now my English keyboard is autocorrecting into Spanish and I keep asking my parents "¿cómo están?" when they barely know what "hola" means.

Your school's messed up too. I bet lots of people are absent Monday-Wednesday because their families decide to go on vacation for Thanksgiving. Might as well give Monday-Friday off.

I don't think any school makes their breaks legitimate breaks. Either way, I'm ready to buckle down and shrivel up. My presentation's tomorrow and I'm so nervous I'm sleeping at 18:00, which is pretty fucked because it's usually the other way around.

[more swearing]

'Night I guess.

This is how my school is too. High five, Schools That Don't Make Sense Club.

I have Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Wednesday is an early release. My school does the same thing for Christmas...the 23rd is an early release, even though most people are gone to visit family by then.

I had to make up a math quiz today, which was ???? but I somehow got an 87 on it despite not even answering a question which I guess is neat. But since a lot of people in my class didn't do well we have to take a similar quiz tomorrow, first period...joy. I also have an APUSH test so it's like, yeah I'm ready for the sweet embrace of death.

Projects n' stuff: pretty much all of them are due after the break. I have an English essay I need to finish up (I should tomorrow) and then I need to visit my school's writing center since that's mandatory for this assignment. I'm kinda stressed out about it because said essay is based on trigger warnings and safe spaces in colleges, and I'm afraid whoever is reviewing my speech will not know me so they'll have never heard my tone which will completely ruin the entire thing. I'll definitely do that on Wednesday because the periods are shortened so that's less time but still the ten points.
I have an infomercial project thing for APUSH due the same day as the speech, and I am honestly not excited for that at all. I'm paired up with a good friend of mine so we should be all right I guess, but there's hardly any guidelines so I'm afraid we'll accidentally do the entire thing incorrectly.
In Spanish I have an oral next Tuesday and all I can say is I'm ready for this year to end so I can never take a language class ever again.

Also, I need to get in contact with my old graphics teacher (who switched schools, miss you man) because there's this summer program over the summer at Champlain (my top college) that I want to go to. I asked a lady in the office if she knew how to contact him and I learned that her oldest daughter is a graphics major in Champlain, which is like, wow, that's literally me. Hopefully she can get his e-mail for me because that would be fantastic.

Another thing on the Schools That Don't Make Sense Club, my midterms are in January. Finally not on my birthday this year, only because it falls on a Saturday, but...January.

What's the issue with your tone, Nelly?

I'm not sure if our school even has a midterm. I certainly can't think of anything that would qualify, but I do have an abnormally shitty memory.

I'm passionate. I might meme a bit. It's never completely serious and monotone. Really it can just come off as unprofessional and seeing this is a college level course that may be important.

Passion is good. Lightheartedness can be good too. Essay readers are still people, so even if it's a serious topic, I assure you they will appreciate a fluctuating tone over a monotone one, because it is easier and more interesting to go through. As long as you don't make offensive or inconsiderate jokes, which I am sure you didn't, you will be fine.

I need to prepare a schedule for when it's time to enroll classes, as well as some backups in case the classes are full before I get there, and I'm lost as to what to do. :/

Also, I need to prepare an essay for bonus points on a conference (and I haven't found what conference to do it on) before the 29th.

And I have a play/presentation/group thing we need to do for Humanities.

I just want it to be vacation time already.
Lmao my old sig was so angry I can't even

Semester break is coming! Meaning a whole month at home, evading my parents suggestion to go out and play football.

Also, I enter the scholarship signup list with maybe five contest participation certificates. Test was last Tuesday, and I can't answer a quarter of it. I was pretty down.

But hearing the others said they can only answer a quarter fills me with hope. Now to pray.
Hi.
Toasts are nice. And cookies. COOKIES!

Jokes are debatable.

Though I think it's pretty decent. I finished three things for English today but still have three more things to do come Monday so I'm having a great break.

How is/was DP? Did you do high school diploma or IB diploma?

IB diploma. Was decent; I did Bio and Spanish HL, and my social science elective was Anthro. It was a decade ago, so I'm not sure what changed since then, if anything. It'll get quite a bit harder than MYP, but it's OK as long as you remember not to discount even the most obvious-seeming pieces of information on the rubrics.

I caught up on 6 days' worth of make-up work (it took about 9-10 hours) so maybe by the time I get all of this in I won't be failing four classes.
