My gawd, I'm such a rebel...

Jeez, MS Word and Powerpoint is exceedingly easy. I'm an entire chapter ahead so I have a lot of free time in the computer lab, which incedentally, is where I'm posting this from.

Cast lists for Up The Down Staircase came out today. I have been granted to role of Joe Ferone, the rebel without a cause. Didn't see that one coming. Wasn't particularly hoping for this role, but as an actor, I shall take it. Several friends got the parts they wanted, which is cool.

Random notes and meaningless info follows:

-I'm really not enjoying German 3. I am in class clown/jock central. Normally, I do a good job of ignoring them, but I'm right in the middle of one of their major intersections, so I have to put up with dodging thrown objects and loud voices. Not particularly fond of the teacher, either. The students can throw stuff, yell across the room and horse around with the sink, but start playing calculator games, and suddenly you're being disruptive, please put it away.

-I'm getting thoroughly vexed with my hair. I can't seem to get it to lay flat and smooth like a girl's. I'm stuck with it looking like I'm with the "in" crowd, which I assure you, is far from the truth.

-Miniatures cost too much.

-The DMV is a very poorly-organized place. I spent about 15% of the time in line, 45% waiting to be called to renew my learner's permit (no, I still don't have the full license, so shoot me), 25% waiting to take my picture and 15% actually getting my new permit. I did get fully caught up on my Psychology reading, so it wasn't a complete waste of time.

And now I'm rambling, so I'll leave you to whatever the hell it is you people do when you're not listening to me whine.

My aim is bad.

Down the, oops. Up the down stairs... case... cases

^Actual quote from one of my auditions. They went well, thanks for asking. I'm hoping for the role of McHabe or one of the teachers, but I have a feeling I'll get stuck as one of the kids, thanks to all the taller people. Cast list won't be posted until Tuesday, which is a FARKING ETERNITY! I want my role now!

School's all right I guess. Psychology is fun, and the reading has yet to be a real problem. Finished Oedipus the King in Com/Trag, and I enjoyed it.

Oh yeah. Firefly is a damn good show. I'm starting to regret not getting into it sooner.

Second Gig


School started yesterday. Let's run through the classes, shall we?

FST - Standing for Functions, Statistics and Trigonometry. It was either this or Pre-Calculus. Seems tame enough so far. Problem is, the questions have to be written out on the assignment. Just ridiculous as it eats up valuable time and shoots my entire organization method to hell.

Chemistry - Fun. Everybody complains about having to write Lab reports, but I'm optimistic. I'll gladly take writing over the horribly long worksheets that go with the labs.

Comedy/Tragedy - Half the class is made up of friends and acquaintances. This is good. The class itself is interesting so far, and I'm looking forward to starting the first play, Antigone.

MS Word/Powerpoint - Can I just have the "A" right now? I really am not enjoying it, though. The teacher doesn't seem very good or organized. I can't even log in to the school network.

AP Psychology - Looking like a fun, but difficult class. Cool teacher, and the textbook has some neat stuff in it. Not terribly worried about the difficulty or the amount of reading. Should be good.

Study Hall - Yay.

German 3 - No yay.

Auditions for Up the Down Staircase are next week, so I'll definetly show up there.
