ya know...

i hope calc II is better than the calc/physics classes so far, cuz i don't want a 3rd class that i always skip. not that i mind hte extra sleep, but i feel stupid having a class i never go to, not to mention it's a waste of my parents' money. tho i think theyre paying more for me to get the grade adn the degree than for me to have any great understanding of hte physics of elastic collisions and torque
o yeah, i actually learned something in my physics recitation last week! it was seriously exciting, cuz i'd given up on that ever being useful and i finally figured out how to do torque right (for the 2nd time. i seriously forgot everything i learned in my hs class, whcih is a shame cuz now i can't do this crap. i wish i'd taken the AP when i had the chance. there are a lot of APs i shouldve taken, actually, i probly coulda skipped a buncha useless classes. i'm still angry at myself for that). so now i understand something about circular forces. i still don't know what the 4 different kinds of acceleration are, cuz the book only explains 2 of them and just sorta assumes you'll know what hte other 2 are (plus all 4 seem to be used interchangeably sometimes which makes it drastically more confusing), and god knows mobius' lecture notes from the class site aren't any help.
getting back to my original point.. since this will be another lecture class and far as i know we're using the same book from calc I, the deciding factor will be if i actually learn anything in class or not. either most teachers are really bad or i'm just a horrible student, but a lot of people can't teach to me at all. this may also have something to do with why i can never properly explain things to anyone else
judging from the ad currently displayed on my aim buddylist, whoopi goldberg is playing santa claus in a tnt movie. how frightening
don't get me wrong: some teachers are friggin awesome. just, most of them arent. meredith [my kickass freshman comp teacher] gave me a list a couple weeks ago of good/bad englihs teachers she knows about, so hopefully i can avoid having more classes like my last two writing classes, whcih were less than stellar. speaking of which, i had been planning to show up at form and theory next semester and see if i coudlnt squeeze in, but i realized that my current schedule woudlnt let me do that anyway. tho i could always drop a class if neccesary. i forget what conflicts, i'll have to check on that.
