thanks turbulenteskimo for putting up with that
O o phyxius o O [1:24 AM]: i never set resolutions
O o phyxius o O [1:24 AM]: unless they're really easy and i theres no way i wont do it
turbulent eskimo [1:24 AM]: oh well, another new years is coming up
O o phyxius o O [1:25 AM]: yeah, i'm kinda freaking out cuz everyone's making me think about what college i'm going to go to.
turbulent eskimo [1:25 AM]: what year are you? senior?
O o phyxius o O [1:25 AM]: junior
turbulent eskimo [1:26 AM]: oh ok, then you have time, but you should still start looking into it
O o phyxius o O [1:26 AM]: yeah...my mom bought this book full of them and she really wants me to narrow it down, but i'm not even sure what i want my major to be
turbulent eskimo [1:26 AM]: no pressure though. it doesn't come pressure time until like this time next year
O o phyxius o O [1:27 AM]: and i've taken the psat's, the act's, and the sat's are next week
turbulent eskimo [1:27 AM]: then you should just think about all the majors you might consider and find a school that has pretty decent programs for all of them
turbulent eskimo [1:27 AM]: and if you want to change, you can just switch, or you can just transfer
O o phyxius o O [1:28 AM]: and i keep getting like 3 brochures a day from different places...which is probably a good thing
turbulent eskimo [1:28 AM]: yeah, that's definetely a good thing
O o phyxius o O [1:32 AM]: but it's just forcing me to realize i cant stay in high school forever
O o phyxius o O [1:32 AM]: i mean, my god, i'm 16...when i was younger, 16 was a huge deal
O o phyxius o O [1:32 AM]: i'm graduating in less than 2 years
turbulent eskimo [1:34 AM]: i never really thought about it in high school. it really hit me about a year or so later. i hated going to graduation though. it was hot and i we had to wear like 548694893456 layers of clothing
O o phyxius o O [1:35 AM]: and i'm really slacking off in school...kinda
O o phyxius o O [1:35 AM]: i have a chem test tomorrow that i know nothing about
O o phyxius o O [1:36 AM]: and it's not one of those tests that you can just guess your way through and get a B
turbulent eskimo [1:36 AM]: and the seating was really ironic, because we were in alphabetical order, but on one side was a friend of mine since kindergarten, and on the other side was my high school nemisis
turbulent eskimo [1:36 AM]: thats typical
O o phyxius o O [1:36 AM]: haha....
turbulent eskimo [1:37 AM]: as you get closer to the end of high school you realize how much it all doesn't matter in the long run and how unstressful it really is
O o phyxius o O [1:37 AM]: all throughout school i've been able to get pretty much straight As without doing hardly anything. its not like i'm stupid, though, i'm in all advanced classes...i dont know how it has worked, maybe it's just easy for me, but anyway, now, i have 2 classes that i actually need to work at
turbulent eskimo [1:38 AM]: i remember a test i had senior year in anatomy that asked about myopia, the eye condition, and i totally didn't know the answer, so i wrote a story about Opia, a ficitonal dog that died when i was young.
turbulent eskimo [1:38 AM]: the teacher read it in class. i was so upset that the rest of the class didn't think it was funny
O o phyxius o O [1:38 AM]: haha...i think i have that actually
O o phyxius o O [1:40 AM]: but it IS stressful...
turbulent eskimo [1:41 AM]: just keep good notes and study. if you get behind, high school has all these ways to catch back up
O o phyxius o O [1:41 AM]: but i dont study
O o phyxius o O [1:42 AM]: i keep notes, but those arent helpful if i dont study
turbulent eskimo [1:42 AM]: do you typically remember everything from class then?
O o phyxius o O [1:42 AM]: eh.....kinda
O o phyxius o O [1:42 AM]: but this test tomorrow is all names and dates...
O o phyxius o O [1:42 AM]: and i cant do that
turbulent eskimo [1:42 AM]: i didn't start getting any study habits until my first year of college where i had to study
turbulent eskimo [1:43 AM]: ew, names and dates tests suck
O o phyxius o O [1:43 AM]: yeah
O o phyxius o O [1:43 AM]: i failed one test last quarter and managed a B, so I'm hoping I can pull that off again
turbulent eskimo [1:44 AM]: what's the test on?
O o phyxius o O [1:45 AM]: people who did stuff in chemistry....democritus, newton, lavoisier, dalton, proust, gay-lussac, avogadro, thomson, millikan, mosely, chadwick, bohr, rutherford, geiger, marsden, becquerel, marie and pierre cure, and einstein
O o phyxius o O [1:45 AM]: and i have to know what all of them did
O o phyxius o O [1:46 AM]: in relation to chem
O o phyxius o O [1:46 AM]: and that's just half of it
O o phyxius o O [1:46 AM]: a few formulas too
turbulent eskimo [1:46 AM]: oh, science, i sooooo can't help you there
O o phyxius o O [1:46 AM]: yeah, it's not my strong point either
O o phyxius o O [1:48 AM]: every few week i get into an "i dont care" mode, where i convince myself that it really doesnt matter if i skip this one assignment and I just want to stop doing everything. stop doing all my homework, stop studying, and just become a full-fledged slacker
O o phyxius o O [1:48 AM]: *weeks
turbulent eskimo [1:49 AM]: yeah, i've been there. it's ok to do as long as you do enough to still keep your grade up, or know you can make it up later
O o phyxius o O [1:50 AM]: but if i cant
turbulent eskimo [1:51 AM]: maybe you should figure up how much the test counts for your grade, your homework/quiz grade, and what you made on the other test
O o phyxius o O [1:52 AM]: but it doesnt matter. nothing matters. if people can completely change their career when they're 30, i can afford to bomb this
turbulent eskimo [1:52 AM]: true story
O o phyxius o O [1:53 AM]: fuck, man, i'm 16...i should be having fun...not stressing over this
O o phyxius o O [1:53 AM]: but i am
O o phyxius o O [1:53 AM]: but i'm doing both
O o phyxius o O [1:54 AM]: sorry, i'll leave you alone now...i should go to bed
turbulent eskimo [1:54 AM]: you should be having fun, but then again its monday night. people don't really have fun on mondays, they worry about junk. its totally instintual
O o phyxius o O [1:54 AM]: lol
turbulent eskimo [1:55 AM]: ok, night night, good luck on the test, you'll do fine
O o phyxius o O [1:55 AM]: no i wont
O o phyxius o O [1:55 AM]: but thanks
