Good day, good day.  Once again, a little comic strip to look at =D

Now that that’s over, let’s go over what happened today.  I woke up bright and early at around 6AMand got to school a little late for XC practice (6:30AM).  We ran over to Ukay Heights today to do some hill training.  Boys were to do 5 runs of 90 seconds.  It sounds like nothing, but it really gets you tired fast.  We finished running, I got showered, and headed off to classes.  Classes today:

Web Page Authoring: Same ‘ol class.  I’m still trying to find “my style”, which has been taking from the start of the school year up to now.  It’s sometimes hard to figure out exactly what the teacher wants, but I try.  I’ve come up with my logo, but I’m having some difficulty figuring out just what to do with it speaking in terms of animations.  I have no Flash knowledge, so I have yet to learn.

Algebra 2A: Test day.  Simple test, though.  I’m sure I got close to a perfect score.  My Algebra 2A score is still up high, and I’m going to keep it that way.  It’s an easy class so far, shouldn’t be too bad.

French 3: Well, this is basically a repeated year, seeing that I took French 3 at the International School of Beijing (ISB).  It’s not that hard, but I need to work on it a little more.  Today we did some easy exercises, learning more about the grammer and reviewing passé composé for les verbes réfléchis.

AP US History: My favorite and most challenging course.  Today, we took a test on Chapter 8 of the book.  I missed 3 problems, earning an 80%.  It doesn’t mean too much because the grade will go up thanks to the mass of Extra-Credit work I’ve been completing.

Everything’s been going just fine.  I have no new music to listen to, so it’s the same albums over and over again for me.  Oh well.  In other news, we got a new Astro Smartcard.  I have no idea what it’ll do, but that’s peachy anyways! =S

KLCC tomorrow, and it’s my mom’s birthday too!

Jesus Christ, this is the scariest game I’ve ever touched.  I’ve spent about 15 minutes running around in the game after all Hell has broken loose in Mars City.  In the game, I was just talking to this Chinese guy when suddenly, a portal opens up.  Flaming skulls from Hell fly around the room, and I’m watching in pure horror as a flaming Hell skull enters the man, and passes right through him (remember Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within?)  Absolutly frightening.  Now, I’m just wondering what to do.  I’ve got my dinky little pistol drawn, and I step up to the Chinese guy to see what’s happened to him.  Suddenly, he lunges at me and bites.  I was so starttled that I couldn’t aim right, and ended up firing a few shots far from his head.  I played through a few more minutes of intense suspense before stopping.  Great graphics and all.  Dark and spooky.  It really makes you jump when enemies come popping out at you.  Of course, you don’t know what you’re shooting at half of the time.

Back to work work work..

I opened up my Gmail account today and, much to my surprise,  I noticed that I had just gotten 6Gmail invites!  I’ve been waiting a little while for this, so I’m happy. =D

I just completed my ILA homework, but I’m getting behind in Honors Chemistry.  After the exchange, I’ve been busy all the time with homework.  For the most part, I’m happy with the school progress.  I have a 96.2% average in Algebra 2A as of now, making me the student with the 4th or 5th highest mark in the class.  My AP US History grade is alright at a 91.2%.  It will improve soon due to the extra credit work that I have been doing during lunchtime.

It’s all good.
