Senior Year: The Light at the End of the Tunnel!

It's that time again! School starts in about a week and a half, and I have yet to do the few chapter summaries that are required of me.
I enjoyed my summer. I went on several church trips, and I had quiet the educational sabbatical. I got thoroughly burnt out last school year- I blame it on the inordinate amount of pressure that my AP teachers put on me. They stressed me to the extreme about those tests, and I responded by slacking off. I made a 4 on all of my exams.
The moral of the story? Sometimes, the task is not as difficult as you perceive it to be. Just prepare for it, and when it comes time to prove your skills you'll be calm and ready.
I look forward to getting some slack from my teachers this year. Being late occasionally to class, getting to eat and drink in class without the teacher really caring, being chummy with the teachers because this is the close of a 4 year partnership, and generally not having them on my case. This will be nice!

I hope to put a sign in front of my parking spot. You see, I've parked in the same spot for 3 years. I would like for people to remember that it is, indeed, MY spot, and to please not park there. I'm thinking about getting a base similar to the ones that backyard basketball hoops use- you know, large black plastic and filled with water? Then I would attach a sign (waterproof, of course!) that said "Brookie's Spot".

That would be lovely :)

I'm not taking too many hard classes this year- only AP Government, AP Psychology, and AP World History. My other classes are orchestra, economics, photoshop, physics and pre-calculus. Pre-Calc might be tough, along with physics, and I'm not even taking them up a level! :-?

Well, I guess I've rambled just about enough!
