Maybe you still read this blog. Maybe you even still pay attention to what I say here. Or maybe not. Anyhow, the lack of updates here is due to the following:
I had to read both Judgement [sic] in Stone and Brave New World for English, and I had to complete certain chapters in my brand-spanking new Biology Student Study Guide, 7th Edition, after reading my brand-spanking old Biology, 5th Edition. Obviously, there were a few discrepancies.
I’ve been quizzed over the reading already. We’ll have to see how that turns out.
Well, it is that time of year. Teachers, students, and counselors alike have been warning us that our Junior year is our hardest, by far. So you’ll naturally be expecting fewer and fewer updates to this blog in the next few months.
My teachers are okay, I suppose. Miss Kremer (AP Biology) seems pretty nice. And Mr. Cahill (English Ⅲ) should be very interesting. But I’m not too thrilled with Mr. Mongenas (Morality & Social Justice), who doesn’t seem to be too thrilled about teaching the course.
And then there’s AP Computer Science A. Despite this year’s Course Catalog stating that the course teaches C/C++, the school is teaching Java in the course instead. I’m not quite thrilled about learning a language that, in my opinion, isn’t nearly as powerful/flexible/whatever. And I’m also not quite thrilled that a classmate of mine, Harjus of Quote-of-the-Day fame, was the only student in the Class of 2005 (my class) to learn C++ at our school.
But I’ll have to cope. It is, after all, high school.
(Jim will soon be merging with Jabberzilla, another Jabber client for Mozilla. Jabberzilla has fallen into disrepair in recent months, so it’s getting the overhaul of the simpler Jim. In turn, Jim will take on the more widely known Jabberzilla name.)
So that, in a rather large nutshell, is why I’m busy.
By the way, this is the 50th post on this temporary blog. Just goes to show how much I can procrastinate a long-needed website job.
