I finally have some time to write! Let's see... Today I got up at 9:00 a.m. (3:00 a.m. EST). Since I had nothing to do, I decided to just ride around the city a bit. It's great here at this time on a Sunday morning. Only elderly people everywhere. That so much beats some punk asking you for a cigarette everywhere you go. At this time, all you here is stuff like: "Did you hear Markus got a baby? Yes! He's so cute!” So I rode around for about three hours or so. It was tons of fun.
I take a lot of pictures. The only problem is that I have an iMac, and they don't take disks. I'd either have to buy a Memory Stick reader or a floppy drive. Since I don't feel like doing either, I'll just add them at school someday, probably Monday a week or so from now.
My week next week isn't so bad. I only have to go to school for two hours Monday, Thursday, and Friday, and four hours Tuesday. Wednesday I have off. This is because of semester exams. After the exams I guess I should study. I will do that, but I will also be good, and write in here.

Here is my exam schedule with self-evaluation:

Monday: IB German A2: I have to write some commentary on something. Should be all right.

Tuesday #1: Advanced Algebra: Considering this class is my only non-IB class, I better do well.

Tuesday #2: IB Economics: That could be painful.

Thursday: IB Chemistry: This one I'm doing the most studying on. It's my best class, so it should be all right.

Friday: IB English A1: This will be fun! I have to write, and write, and write!

And when all this is over, I will be happy. Until I get the results! That would be all for now.

My dog was injured the past few days. Today I took him to the vet and got him fixed up. He seems fine now. I have exams next week, so I need to study a lot.

It was a great week! It was really a terrible week! But it's over! Dah! German Music Station! All they play is some techno stuff. "Pick up the bass, the beats, and the melody!” Ahhhh! Now they're playing Jennifer Lopez! That's more like it! I have five exams next week. That'll be great! Pardon my sarcasm. It seems I have writers log since I returned to Austria. Oh well!

Setting Them Straight

To tell you the truth, my day hasn't been any better or easier today. One thing that was cool was that I had an emotional breakdown in German class! This happened after my teacher degraded a poem I had worked two hours on. Then I just lost it and said and complained, and complained some more. Then I basically took the liberty to complain about the whole school for around fifteen minutes. After that, no one felt the same about school. I am sure of that. Lesson learned: If something pisses you off, say it; unless of course it will harm you.

Crappy Day

It was seriously such a crappy day yesterday. And today is even worse. You ever have the feeling everyone is against you? And on top of that you get more bad news? I've been having one of those days.

I’m back in Austria. I got here yesterday at 9:15 a.m. (3:15 a.m. EST). I spent the flight watching two movies, Coyote Ugly and Forrest Gump. I had seen Forrest Gump back when it came out in 1994, but it was good to see it again. Actually, I ended up seeing it two and a quarter times. That is because Coyote Ugly was much shorter, like 79 minutes, while Forrest Gump lasted 130 minutes. So after Coyote Ugly was over, I flipped over to Forrest Gump, and saw a large part of it.

Yeah, so anyway, I learned so much from seeing Forrest Gump again. You get like all the foreshadowing and stuff before hand. Even after reflecting on the movie hours later, I understood another part of it. Another reason I understood it much better was that back when I saw it the first time, I was 11, so I didn’t understand much of the context. Now I understood why it’s rated PG-13.

When I wasn’t watching a movie I was playing some video games. That made the flight go by pretty fast. When I got home I slept a while. After that, I first tried getting a weblog entry up. No success. The site wouldn’t load. Then I tried
