Day 318 – Work work work

Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Today was busy as expected.

I started off with programming. I learned While…Loop and did one of the works pretty quickly, but now I’m stuck on another. I decided since I was running out of time, Megg could complete it for me and I’d learn it later on, but I decided against it since he probably has work of his own and I’d ask my teacher for time to do it during the weekend instead.

I then had cooking and we worked on our pasta made from scratch. We messed up the first time and the second time it looked much better.

At lunch I sat with one of my close friends. We talked a little about school and how sign language should be a necessary taught thing (although in some elementary schools some do now—in our area) and how she wanted to quit the international baccalaureate, since the classes she is forced to take does not help in the career she wants to follow (they don’t get to pick most of their classes and only have few options). We later joined Kohai at her table and talked about Harry Potter and ships. I asked what would be the worst ship and my close friend mentioned “Snape x Teletubbies”. She explained herself after she Googled in the past “Worst Harry Potter ships” and that showed up. Then we proceeded to talk about children shows.

In technology class my teacher told me that his family is fighting over the chocolate I gave him for Christmas and he asked me where I got it from, since it’s too cute to eat (it’s a white chocolate snowman), so they need to get more so they can all eat some. That made me laugh. I then worked on the X-Wing, tried to make the material glass, but it wouldn’t work, so decided that it’s not worth it with the little time that I have, and tried doing the nose of the X-Wing, but was struggling, as I did before. Luckily that’s all I have to do and I have one more class for it.

I finished the day with math and we continued learning our unity.

When I got home I worked on PHP quite a bit and finished one work. It’s not exactly like my teacher’s, but it’s only the spacing between td’s in the table, so I really can’t be bothered.

I then did a tiny bit of math and decided that I wouldn’t practice and that I understand it. I think I’ll do well anyway, but I’ve always blanked on every test that I did that wasn’t during the original planned date to do it, so I’ll have to make sure that doesn’t happen.

I then worked for another hour or so of PHP. I decided to skip all the While…Loop works and straight to the multi dimensional arrays, since I finished the only array work earlier, and I just copied his code, even if you’re supposed to copy and learn from it. I just don’t have time right now to learn from it. If I want to then I will go back to it later on.

I plan on checking math once again to make sure I got everything. I think I will have one hour to study while waiting for my teacher to be available for my test after school tomorrow. If not, then I can ask her for a quick two minute scan over my notes. You only really have to know this circle and a couple of equations, then the rest is just logic; I’m not worried.

I also plan on watching the first episode of Sherlock season 4. I didn’t watch it yesterday, because we needed the laptop to plug into the TV, since we’re watching the episode through a website. This, the bus and supper have been my only relax times during these busy exam weeks.

That’s all for today.

One thought on “Day 318 – Work work work”

  1. I thought you said work and stress made you happy? XD

    Obs, you might not think so, but I think you had a really good day today. You learned so much and you’re getting so much done. Keep it up. Stress is normal. If you read any of the adult’s posts here, everyone has it. Adults have it worse because a single bad decision we do can result in many terrible consequences.

    I just want you to know that you have full control of the situation. You don’t have to do homework or study at all if you don’t want to. It’s okay to fail a test or fail a class, in the long run it won’t make any difference. You can also always try the same course again later if you really want to learn it again.

    But I’m glad that you actually want to do well and succeed on your own will and accord, because we do share similar and intertwining goals. Everything technical you’re learning now is stuff I’ve already learned and mastered, so I can tutor you on any difficult topics you’re having trouble with and you will be far ahead of any other student in class.

    Anyways, keep it up. Don’t stress out so much because again, you have the choice and power. You can skip every class if you wanted to, this is your life. I’m here to help if I can, use me as a resource 😛
