Some of you will and some of you won't comprehend what I mean when I write that I have had multiple five paragraph essays due. Obviously you can guess it's generic structure of five paragraphs, which personally I think is an annoyingly formulaic way to write. The first paragraph is introductory and you make a thesis statement. That is universal for any type of essay, but then you are limited to three "body" paragraphs to address three separate points about your topic. This is not a hard task. Oh no, it is a tedious, almost mind-numbing, assignment. My running total of ones written this week is three. And I didn't even have school on Monday! One in P.E. about three questions I'd ask someone (dead or alive). I chose Abraham Lincoln. One in English about which of the following I deemed most important: being popular, accomplishing things or being organized. I picked the latter. Curious as to why? Well, read my essay, er, ask. One for Chemistry dealing with where I see myself in ten years (that I most recently finished). Fun, fun.
There's not much to update you on other than my pitiful 77% on a math quiz. Gah! It was before we got our tests back (the one I failed and I think I would've not made the same dumb mistakes had I had it to go over prior to the quiz.) Oh, well. I am determined to be do better on the other quizzes and tests from now on.
I want my history test back -- now.
