I'm suppose to be on Spring Break this week and I spent about half the day on a college visit. Same thing Wednesday. I thought the whole point of break was to get away from school.

I don't get spring break. EVER. Laugh at the book now if it will make you feel better.

Nah. Soon enough I wont have spring break either. (If anyone else feels like talking about other school related stuff, shoot. I didn't make this thread solely so I could bitch.)

Spring break came and went for me because I did the exact same things I did on school days. We've got Good Friday off though, and seniors get out two weeks early.

Signing up for summer college classes next week Monday. I don't get spring break in college, but I get a) 2 years for free and b) only two classes on two days of the week. I tested out of English Comp I and II back in 2009 and into intermediate algebra in 2010. I also took Game Development via dual-enrollment and finished entrepreneurship and computer concepts earlier this year, effectively clearing up an entire semester before even graduating. This whole college thing is pretty awesome.

I might be one of the few people for whom school doesn't suck, though.

Me? I just don't. Japanese class is probably the easiest though.

Well yes ... But also that you get no break whatsoever.

Languages just stick. as to the break, there just isn't one. although I only have school at most 4 days a week.

That still strikes me as odd. Do you go to a big university or a small liberal arts college?

What kind of online classes are you taking, Almanac? Mine are all with a registered distance learning school.

Also, Japanese is pretty easy to pick up. At least the basics are, anyway. I've always found French and Spanish really easy too though, simply because I'm already familiar with French, and Spanish is pretty similar.

I have an "umbrella" organization that does nothing except keep track of credits, so I got a textbook for japanese and started learning. I also ended up with the Byki deluxe through the umbella I think.
Many of my relatives speak Spanish, and I used to know some, but I haven't used the vocabulary in a long time, so I got less good at it.

I have to have work from a class(eg, Udacity gives a certificate to show your competent/I have the book, and all the work in it completed.)
Except PE, I just have to be fit.

Up to the structure of each one. If it has one or more chiral centers (places where the molecule can reflect itself) I'm screwed because I'll be losing half the yield for each step to make 'em.

Also, side note for extremely friggin' expensive reagents in some cases. But yeah, at least some things would be easy to make I think :P

butternut

That's p. awesome. If nothing else, you can make drugs for a living (though you have to go through a lot of shit to get yourself established that way).

College ends in exactly 24 days for me. NO MOAR STUDYING! YAY! At least not till I choose to.
But that also comes with a lot of responsibility, making a living and other things. /mixed feelings

And since its almost end of semester, I have a presentation to make in 2 hours, and a video ad to be submitted in 2 days. And we have a music night thingy tonight for the graduating class (that's us!)

Yes, I had a dance in middle school too. It was very prom-ish. Though only for 7th and 8th graders.

Bacon_Barbarian
04-22-2012, 01:37 PM
Prom is Junior-Senior dance. You can call a dance "prom" in middle school, but it still wouldn't actually be prom. *shrug* Afterprom is the fun part anyway.

GunZet
04-22-2012, 02:05 PM
Prom is just an easy way to snag your money to let kids dance with friends and show off. Which is why I chose the better choice on prom day, and went to the skatepark. It was fuckin' braw.

Bacon_Barbarian
04-22-2012, 02:13 PM
Eh. I enjoyed it. Then again, my group was huge. Literally 1/15th of the entire school. Am I'm not gonna lie, I like dressing up. Tuxedos are fun. The actual dancing was meh, as most people were just in the huge mass of grinding, but my group just sort of went off and did it's own thing. We also made a conga line and got in everyone's way, and that was fun. And the sleepover after after prom. And fourth meal.

04-23-2012, 02:08 AM
*gasp* yeah well... we ended up trying to have an "anti-prom" which basically meant dressing up, going out to eat as a group, and then going bowling in our dresses.

On topic with school sucking - I have a midterm on tuesday that I haven't started studying for (i'm past the point of stress and now feel nothing) , and I have to come up with a paper topic for my end of the quarter paper. The class is decision making... I'm thinking something to do with juries?

Exactly! You prove my point :) From the little that I've read (I may come back and change this in a month) my understanding is that when faced with a risky decision a teenager will value the good that will come out of it (doing something awesome... winning a bet who knows.) more than the potential losses (breaking something blah blah blah). Their thought process would be something along the lines of "eh I haven't hurt myself yet so who cares." Supposedly when an "adult" is faced with the same situation they would put a higher value on all the things that could mess up and put less value on the possible gains. Does that make sense? I'm not saying it's a bad thing, I just think it's really cool :D

AlmanacnamedTime
04-23-2012, 08:13 PM
thats not my thought process, it goes like "whats the worst that could happen?">"Death">"thats it?">"yep"> do the thing.

... it still involves putting less weight on "the worst that could happen" tho ;)

butternut
04-24-2012, 07:56 AM
This discussion just made me realise the difference between me and my friends. i'm still a kid (know the consequences, but value the good, and not really regard the bad unless it's really really bad; take risks) and they've grown up a lot (think a LOT about any decision or the next step and evaluate all the pros and cons and still make sure there's a safety net...all that). It's like two ways of looking at things. And you can't really say that one is right and the other wrong, coz each has its own good and bad. But it's a little difficult to convince them about some things when they are very concerned about you. And all because you look at things differently.

because its tonal. and japanese is easier.

Bacon_Barbarian
04-24-2012, 11:06 AM
Yeah, I know. Personally I would much rather take Japanese, being a bit of a Japanophile, but it's got a lot less practical uses. I'm also thinking of doing some work with the Peace Corps when I get out of College, and they don't do any work in Japan but they do in China.

AlmanacnamedTime
04-24-2012, 11:08 AM
then why is it a bad idea? i'm taking japanese mainly cuz nobody around where i live seems to know it, but if mandarin has a practical use then go ahead.(also if your not tone-deaf, that helps a lot)

Bacon_Barbarian

madarin is much harder to learn then japanese and there are actually five different tones in wich u can say any given word. this means u really have to watch how you speak or risked being hit over the head by the person u just offended. i say take cantonese instead

then why is it a bad idea? i'm taking japanese mainly cuz nobody around where i live seems to know it, but if mandarin has a practical use then go ahead.(also if your not tone-deaf, that helps a lot)

I believe mandarin is more practical, as China is 50&#37; of human population.

Good that you don't need a omnipresent being which existence is unprovable. But in the other subject, you do depend on other people, like parents, and also, Capitalism in USA is basically saying to you "hey, don't depend on anyone, you can achieve everything by yourself", while those same guys suck your money.
