So, I took the Latin test. I think it went pretty well. I felt like I actually knew the stuff on it. I wonder if it was somehow easier than the last one or if I am actually learning. I feel like I may have gotten an A on it. It could easily be a B, but I am feeling a little cocky about it at the moment. I should probably still feel nervous though. I was the first one to finish the test. Only took me 45 minutes. Class is 75 minutes long. I didn’t rush through it or anything. I just wrote what I thought I knew and suddenly, it was over.
Several people commented on my haircut. A cute boy sits beside me in American History and he made a point of telling me it was adorable. Of course, he is probably 12 years old. Just because he is cute doesn’t mean I am flirting with him. And I don’t actually think he is flirting with me. He is just friendly. He most likely sees me as a mother-figure! The American History test will be Wednesday. I need to reread those chapters. I am not overly worried about this one though. The test is mostly over the 40’s and 50’s. I am not too shabby on that information already.
Next Monday will be the Geography test. North Africa and The Middle East. I am taking a ton of notes in that class. I think it is mostly being retained too. I feel a lot more confidant about the place names in these areas. The teacher in there is dull as dirt. It is all I can do to stay awake. And he talks kind of fast. It is hard to write as fast as he talks. I am always a little nervous that I am missing too much information in the notes. I will make sure to read the chapters before the test though. I think it’ll go well.
I cut my daughter’s hair yesterday. She has been begging me to get hers cut since I got mine cut last week. I didn’t cut hers short like mine is. Her bangs were nearly to her chin, so I just trimmed all the way around and made all her hair that length. It scoops down a bit in the back so it covers her hairline, but it looks cute. It made her so happy. Just a long bowl-cut really, but she loves it. My husband is still not thrilled that I cut mine off. He was not impressed that I cut hers either. I can not even understand how a man thinks he has any say over a woman’s hair. I mean, I guess he doesn’t really think he has a say, but he certainly makes his opinion known. And even after I know his opinion, and know that it is different than mine, and mostly negative, he keeps letting me know it again and again in little ways. I feel a bit bludgeoned by his opinion. I hope he just gets the frak over it soon.
I wanted to do National Novel Writer’s Month this year. It started yesterday. But with three classes and all the tests I have this month and finals being the first week of December, I just don’t have the time for it. Maybe I will make my very own NaNoWriMo in December. A personal novel writing month. I can keep track daily and make a huge effort to get the 50k words that is the normal goal done then. I’ll just be off a bit. School kind of crushes my creativity. I have to spend a lot of time studying and reading stuff that isn’t for pleasure. I end up not having time or energy to devote to writing and stuff like that. *sigh* I really need to remember to do this in December. Anyone game to remind me?
