My neuroses aside, I had a super stellar day at school. And when I say super stellar, I really mean borderline coma-inducing monotony, only broken up by brief moments of hilarity. Taken out of context they may seem ordinary, thus I'll do my best to set the scene for both. Without further ado...
Here we are, sitting in AICE Physics, trying to wrap our heads around superposition of waves when our teacher makes some semi-sexist remark. Honestly, I don't remember what it was, but it was actually pro-female. I know, shocking. The funny part was when Marissa said "See, he knows not to yell at women," to which Kaitlin quipped, "SHUT UP, MARISSA!"
Okay, so maybe you had to be there.
The other quote can be derived from my AP Calc class. (See what I did there?) Our teacher had just finished teaching this "so cool" method for integrating by parts (or as Aniesa thinks, integrating by pants) when she says, "this is only reliable about 90% of the time," and without missing a beat, nearly the whole class shouts "90%!?!" Never before were we so concerned with not being able to do something in math. Also, fun fact: I wrote maybe three numbers on an entire page of Calc notes. Lots of 'u's and 'v's instead, that, unfortunately for me, start to look the same with my atrocious handwriting. I must learn to be careful!
In retrospect, those anecdotes don't seem all that amusing, but hey, you can't fault a girl for trying.
To me, there is no harder question than "how was your ____ break?" One of these days I'm going to make up extravagant stories for when friends ask. For example: "Yeah, I went swimming with dolphins in the Caribbean, then I flew to LA and hung out Adam Levine. In Alaska both aliens and zombies attacked, so I fended both off with a laser I invented. But other than that, it was totally chill. How about you?"
I think it has potential.
On a more serious note, I am honored to have become a trendsetter amongst the Blogger Family for doing BEDA! I am excited to read posts from Maggie, Lizzi, Em, Shelby and whoever else has decided to take part. Sorry if I missed someone. Just let me know in a comment here so I can keep up with it.
To recap: WOO! BEDA 2012! Let's do this!
