From top to bottom: my AICE European History book (for this semester), my 2011 PSAT practice book, my AICE Math book (again, for this semester) and my AICE Biology book. Oh, what did I get myself into? Everyone says junior year is the toughest and now I know why. The pressure is on.

I've been studying for a physics test I have tomorrow and you know what? I decided I needed a break and I shall spend it blogging...about school. What can I say? It's beginning to consume my life again. I can argue with myself about whether or not this is a good thing later.

My lunch got switched. I now sit with Puja, Jackie, Patricia, etc. instead of Emilia, Zack and Kyle. While I was not really happy with my original lunch arrangement, I had just gotten adjusted to it. Of course Aniesa got switched as well so I still don't see her. Oh, wait, she transferred into my math class.

Speaking of math class, I LOVE it. It goes by so quickly! I'm starting to enjoy the subject again after two years of absolute misery. No, no, I'm not kidding. Absolute misery. Just reference any post I put up on here circa 2009 and I bet you'll find a gripe about my test grades and/or the teacher. Man, it may be petty in the grand scheme of things, but life has gotten so much better now. I got a 79 on my first math test, yet no worries. You see, we're covering a new chapter every week and thus taking a test every week so I have that many more chances to improve my average.

I went to Target this past Friday to help my brother get school supplies he'll need for college and of course I found a notebook I wanted.
Garrett and I decided in Physics that he's a merpanda because those paws look suspiciously like a mermaid's fin. I will gladly take suggestions for a name of this merpanda in the comments, haha.

Keep enjoying the rest of your summers!

Fizicks awaits.

This is the beginning of the end.

This was my outfit for today, the first day of school.
(dress - charlotte russe, cardigan - kohl's, black bike shorts - target, shoes - forever 21, necklace - modcloth, belt - kohl's.)

My first day as a high school junior was not extraordinary, but, being the nerd I am, I definitely did have fun.
I wish I had nickel for every time the teachers said, "you're in college, now," when that is only partially true.
I would write more if on my darn space bar wasn't being a jerk.
You see, I tried to fix it and yet I only managed to make it worse, if not ruined entirely.

Well, I hope everyone is still enjoying their summers!

Oh, I am never on my way.

Yesterday I went to the mall with Erin, a good friend from 8th grade.
I had not seen her in practically forever!
Needless to say, a hangout was long overdue.
We talked, ate pretzels, and just generally enjoyed each others' company.
I also bought a set of overpriced no-show socks from Journeys.
I only wish that Kai could've joined us, too.

I have one week left of summer before I start school again.
