An update. It’s about time, isn’t it? Even if nobody else in the whole damn world is reading this, at least I should keep this updated so that I can actually see what’s been happening with my life. Is there a noticeable downward trend? Am I going upwards towards a state of nirvana?
Today, while working franctically on an ILA project, I was sneakily invited into a chat. And then I realized how much I miss Beijing. Even though the air quality sucks, even though the Principal hated me, even though it never rained – I miss the people. At least some of them. It’s been a while already. In fact, school has already almost hit the second semester. I can confidently report that my eyesight has been steadily deteriorating and at this point, I won’t be able to see anything within a few years time. I pray for laser eye surgery.
Today, I received my Algebra 2A quiz. I got 7.75/8.0. Of course, this brings down my grade. Since it was already at a 98.0%, missing any questions counts against me. Yes, it’s going to be tough to keep mmy grades up. However, on the bright side, I was able to bag two 100% grades for homework and participation. Woohoo! An A+ is what I am aiming for the first semester, and I intend to make it.
I’ve been slipping a little on homework lately, and I need to work harder. I need to sleep more, and this isn’t helping me. I’m also trying to use up a large supply of deodorant. I’m currently on this little fellow here:
After this one’s down, I think there’s only 3 more cans to go. Then I buy more over the summer while I’m in New Jersey. Turning 16 soon, and I’m happy. I can apply for a Learner’s Permit and start hitting the road – with an adult with me at all times. I want to get contacts in the States over the summer. And clothes. The school uniform policy in Malaysia is bad. I personally don’t like it. And the Board of Administrators doesn’t like changes to its little set of rules.
To people in Beijing: <3
