|First Day of School

I have to say that Mr. I and Frau Bowman are pretty much the most amazing teachers ever (at first glance at least). I mean Mr. I is the most awkward, hilarious, and racist guy ever. And from the first day, it looks like his teaching style is going to be exactly what I've wanted from every other VHS science teacher (meaning he's not even going to try to teach and we get to learn everything on our own). I'm actually excited for this class. And Frau Bowman's class is pretty much exactly the same as my freshman year with some of the...less good...people weeded out. She's one of the funniest people I know, and it's unintentional half of the time which makes it even funnier. And the class sounds relaxed and better than what we've been doing for the previous couple of years. I just hope she doesn't react badly when she realizes most of us hardly know any German anymore.|
Band kind of sucks. This year we have no Mike Slack, Patterson, Lipscomb, or some hardcore percussionist to do everything for us so half of the marching equipment is still broken/lost/out of tune. And unfortunately, as I had second chair last year, I'm probably going to be the one all this work lands on. And none of the new bass drum players can keep a beat.
All of my other classes are pretty good. Econ and Calculus have great groups of people in them.
I'm not liking college hunting too much. I still have no idea whether to go into bio, engineering, biochem, enviro science, physics, or statistics. Hopefully, it'll work itself out a little bit later. I'm actually really liking a couple of Pennsylvania schools, though. Hopefully, I can get a crap load of financial aid to get out without a couple hundred thousand dollars in debt.
Maybe I'll have another entry sometime before two years from now.
