In-your-face, stupid community college! I beat you! I beat you!! You can't make me go there for one more semester! You tried your hardest, didn't you? But I beat you! I beat you even with your lying guidance counselors, and your really slow transcript evaluators! You cannot conquer me! I will be out of there forever by spring! Hah! You thought you were going to keep me for another semester with your lies and your tricky deceitful ways, but no more! I have won! I am a conqueror! Mwah hah hah hah hah!!!

Yes, I am now enrolled in political science. Officially. I know that the community college was all like conspiracy-isized against me, but I defeated them! My political science teacher is so, so totally nice. He let me in when I had already missed one third of the short fast-track semester, and he has been nothing but totally accommodating and understanding. Yay!

I saw Sark on CSI tonight, even though he was only on for like 4.5 seconds. I have to admit, I miss the accent.

Still have not seen part two of PK Wars. I have been extremely busy trying to catch up with my new class.

In school news, I got a 3.9 on my self paper rewrite. Yay! It is really sort of long, and I think it is a little bit boring, but if you are interested in checking it out, you can read the whole thing here. It had a really tricky prompt where you have to answer all these questions but make it seem like you weren't answering them, and making it seem like a cohesive paper and stuff like that, so it was a little hard. My teacher said not to post my papers online (which I haven't done in any public posts since she asked me not to) but I feel like if any of her students were to copy this one it would be pretty obvious that they were stealing.

In other school news, my history grade is now a 93.857% which is great considering I started out with about 80%.

School is crazy, but going great. I had to take my first political science exam earlier today, and I think it did a reasonably good job, but you can never tell with multiple-choice. Is everybody else like me with multiple-choice? Well, let me to you how I am. It usually doesn't take me very long at all to complete multiple-choice. Even with a scribe, and the initial disorganization at the disabled student services office, I still managed complete 75 questions in a little bit over 30 minutes. I can't take long on it even if I try.

My van is ready to be picked up, but we're still waiting on insurance and my dad. I wish things would get better at work for him, but they have a deadline. I don't think I could ever work somewhere that has deadlines. But who am I kidding? I want to be a teacher, and they have tons of deadlines, right?

I wish that there were one more Saturday in a week so it would go: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday1, Saturday2, Sunday. Wouldn't that be great? If I had that, I would totally be able to accomplish so much more stuff.

Anyhow, I better get going. So much work, so little time.
