“The world is full of people whose notion of a satisfactory future is, in fact, a return to the idolized past.”–Robertson Davies
So, today was the first day of school at home.
NOW I remember why I prayed for summer. Doing school for 8 grueling hours with no rest will do that for you. And I'm still not done. I have stuff to do still, but it's BritLit, so it's not that bad.
Latin: Somebody just shoot me. Either the exercises are so easily I want to throw myself off a building, or they're so hard I want to throw myself off a building.
BritLit: Awesome! Interesting, not too hard, great! I love literature!
Art History: Ugh, it sounds fun, but there's SO MUCH TO DO! We have to read all these books, write all these papers, memorize all the stuff about famous pictures, make a timeline of all the big music and art stuff we come across. It's just too much! I really like the books (How Shall We Then Live? and State of the Arts), but there's just too much to do.
Debate: Challenging, but fun, like last year. It's basically the exact same thing as last year.
Biology: Not really hard, just a lot of stuff to read over and work sheets to do. It's not good or bad yet.
Logic: Ridiculously easy, not fun, not what I love, and it's so disappointing! I love logic, but this isn't "real" logic. *scowls*
Alebra 1 (um, again): Do I even have to say anything?
Overall, *sob* I miss Challenge I!! Oh my gosh! You really never realize how good you have it until you're gone! I hate this! I *LOVED* Challenge I! It was, like, the best year of my whole life! (Challenge B was pretty awesome, too, though...). *SOBSOBSOB*
I just CANNOT live in the present, can I?? I was living so in the past last year that I missed the complete and utter AWESOMENESS of the year! And now I'm doing it again! I'll never learn.
But this year really does suck (so far...day two).
And last year really did rock beyond all freakin' compare.
Other than that rant, I have nothing to say. I feel like I'm just barely keeping my head above water, and school has BARELY started.
Next year when I say that Challenge III sucks and that Challenge II was amazing, come over and kick me, would you?
P.S. Vote in the poll, s'il vous plait.
