Busy Busy Busy Bee

SOMEONE’s been busy.

 

And it wasn’t you.

 

 

Are cousin Stephen.

 

It was me.

 

ANYWHO.

 

Yeah, I’ve been kind of busy. Ironically, on probably the most homework-devoid week of my life since Kindergarten. But, busy all the same.

 

I have two current projects in school right now, a geometry project and an english project. In geometry, we have to build a candy box-thing made out of two of the following: a prism, a pyramid, or a cylinder. It’s due the 11th of March, but it had been assigned for a long time, but I put it off because I had other projects that were closer in due-date. And then I finished all those…And procrastinated. 😐

 

But luckily, I revived my project-working mindset (briefly) and worked out some potential designs for it. I figured out what I’m doing, and I’ll probably try and draw out the stuff I need to cut out. Did I mention I was going to build a prism and a pyramid? No? Didn’t think so. But yes. I have a cardboard box in my closet (Don’t ask why…I don’t properly remember myself) and am going to disassemble it and cut it and work some magic with some construction paper, rubber cement, and duct tape. Just call me Ms. McGuiver.

 

The English project is a research paper. I’m not too psyched about it, honestly. I like English and all, but…yeah. It’s not that I don’t like writing (Why the heck would I get a blog if I hated writing!?) but it’s that I don’t like writing reports. I’d rather come in wearing a corset and a six-foot-wide dress to my sixth-period English class and explain to them with a mixture of visuals and witty comments why women’s fashion on the 1700s is nothing like women’s fashion of today. Not via a dry, wordy, long report. I tend to write reports rather dry and wordy.

 

So, I’ve been putting off the impending doom- I mean projects- by working on yet ANOTHER blog for a comic I’m writing. It’s not quite finished and since I really don’t think anybody wants to read 20 pages of “Coming Soon!”, I’ll post the link once it’s done. So look out for that.

 

Recently, it’s been a bit chilly in the bit of California I call home. Well, chilly for me anyway. People are like, “Oh, it was warm today. It got up to -17 degrees. Celsius. I got out my bikini and went polar bearing. It was so relaxing.” And then I’m all, “IT WAS SO DANG COLD TODAY. THE HIGH WAS 40. OH MY GOSH. I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO TURN INTO A POPSICLE.”

 

But I guess I’m not even the epitome of hyperbole. Because last night I looked on the dashboard of my computer (It’s a Mac thing) and the Weather app said it was going to snow on Saturday.

 

SNOW.

 

When the lowest recorded low on that day was 36. And that’s from the 1980s. The average high on February 26 is 70. Yeah.

 

I got excited, of course.

 

But I just checked the app now. It says it’s supposed to rain tomorrow (there’s a 80% chance at noon) and then thunderstorm Saturday. Weather.com says it’ll just rain, and it’ll stop at 3pm. But I hope it thunders. If I can’t get snow, I would like to get a thunderstorm. They’re fairly rare, and are completely harmless out here. So, to quote Elmer Fudd, “Funda! Wighning! Smog!”

 

I do hope it doesn’t rain at lunch tomorrow, though. We’re going on a field trip. And we NEVER go on field trips. And we’re supposed to eat outside if it doesn’t rain. And I want to eat. Well, we probably will eat even if it rains. I dunno. I just want to eat lunch.

 

Well…That’s about the end of my critically acclaimed, super-interesting life.

 

God bless and have a good Thursday,

    Woah. We never have projects in any of my math courses. Hope you get that load off your chest. AKA If your teachers will stop giving you projects. Whenever one teacher gives us a project, another teacher gives us one shortly after. IT’S A CONSPIRACY!

      I KNOW! It’s so weird! We had a project in every core-class one time! It was so weird.

    I find this amusing. The Temperature, I mean. Where I am (Utah, official motto:We’re too cold to make up a motto) 50 is considered the highest we can have in this season. And the summers never rise above 90 unless there is a heat wave. Being a Boisean at heart, I laugh at them. Good luck, fellow desert-lander.

    I love writing dry and wordy reports most of the time. It gives me a chance to bore the teacher as much as they bore me, and maybe confuse them a little. Same reason I love poetry. I wrote one that will have my English teacher and possibly the school psychologist guessing for years.

      Heck, down here, you’ve got a better chance at having a high of 90 in January than you do of having 40.

      That made me laugh really hard, and out loud. My teacher basically told us that all poetry is about death or love. And then, of course, the only poems we read were Poe and the one that keeps on repeating “Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” (I forgot the title) I read “Walking By Woods on a Snowy Evening” and she said it was about death.

      We never really get a chance to write any poetry. But if I did, it would probably be a bit off-center as well.

        I remember one line that I’m not even sure why I wrote, something like “A canvas well arrayed with slashes”. Which sounds like murder or art. Take your pick.

        I’m sure that made for an interesting conversation at the counselor’s office. 😛

        Or artistic murder
