I did some research today at the County Libary for a Poetry Analysis paper that I have to write. I had to quickly learn how to look up information on literature. Like, how to use the Contemporary Authors Cumulative index. Wow what a neat and huge reference that is. Same with the Contemporary Literary Criticism volume. I had no idea such things existed.

So, turns out, I aced the Phyiscs test anyways. I missed one question, and I had the highest score, so I got a 100% score. The class averages and medians were very low. Median not any higher than 12 questions right out of 26. Our teacher set up a ridiculous curve, and 6 questions right was still a 60% grade. Wow, a monkey could get better than that, cause it was multiple choice, with 4 choices for each question. I think that says something about how much our class has mastered the material.

We had a Physics test today, and it was very interesting. It was decently challenging, and I am really mad @ myself. I'm not doing well on tests this week. The test took up the entire time and I didn't manage time properly so I can answer each question properly, and I kind of slopped down answers on a couple questions. I could have done so much better. Owell, everyone said it was hard, and I think the average score might be low enough where the curve can make up for my stupidity. Owell, I learn for next time, I think I was a little too overconfident that I'll do fine on this test and blew my time management.

We had a test today in Calculus class at Washington University. I'm so mad @ myself. Everything on there I had known how to do @ some time in the past 3 weeks, but I had forgotten it all. I thought I had prepared myself thoroughly, but I managed to screw up.
Woah, I found a nice new car that's coming out in 2000: Toyota Echo. It is cheap! $10295 can get you a 4 door model with the basics. ABS is available, and the 1.5L I4 gives you 41 mpg. Woah. And the trunk is huge! 13.6 cubic feet... which is huge for a small car. This thing is meant to replace the Terecel, and so far, looking kinda good.

As I study politics and government and such things in the class AP US Government and Politics, I'm beginning to find an big interest in the topics, I find the class very interesting. What's even more interesting is politics and government has a lot to do with statistics and statistical analysis at times, and I statistics. As I think more, I probably wouldn't mind working for someone like CNN, doing computer programming.

I did a "tape test" for orchestra tonight that was due tomorrow, and decided to burn it onto a CD-R instead because it was must more convenient that way. I love CDs, forget tapes.

Someone showed me this article, The Menace of Speed Limits today, and I found it very interesting, which provided a few arguments I never foresaw against speed limiters in European big trucks.
