When I was out fencing on Sat with people way more skilled than I, I felt really at peace. Like, it was the first thing I can remember that I would feel happy doing pretty much forever. It felt better than socializing with my close friends (though I was socializing with the people I was fighting) and playing video games. Better than being on the computer. And now I really wish I was back there fighting. I am also kinda excited that I will soon be trying out some different styles of rapiers to test them out and get one for myself. I also love the fact that I can call my instructor by his first name on weekends, even though I must use his last name in school settings.
Oh, and I'm kinda sad that I can't help teasing my friend. Everyone except him and his GF think they have issues with her completely controlling him, and we make fun of him. I'm just afraid that some day I'll go to far, or I'll get a GF and he'll make comments like that, even if they aren't true.
Also, I think my teachers had me in mind when they gave a speech about academic integrity and gave us new randomized assigned seating. In my defense, I know I shouldn't have done it, but I did anyway because doing it the right way wasn't worth the effort because I wish I hadn't taken the class, and I'm going to try and skate by the rest of the semester without cheating and without giving up my B.
I'm afraid I might not get exceeds on my writing AIMS (standardized stated test). I got Mathematics and reading trivially, but my communication skills leave something to be desired and I fell 20 points short of the exceeds, leaving me slightly more than average and with only a slight improvement to my score. Kids who failed get up to 3 more tries, but I only have 1 left. Not fair. And a full ride instate scholarship might depend on my exceeding on it.
And my English course (another one I shouldn't have taken) isn't teaching me anything, so I'm not really going to improve other than trying the strategy of 'simple but straightforward'. Really, nothing about essays. I write a bunch, but I'm not told what's right and wrong with them. This class really doesn't seem to apply to me. Not that it seems it should, I would vastly prefer a course that was either me not taking it or simply some lit stuff, since I can read well.
This was a bit more than I expected to write, but a bunch of stuff appears to have piled on me all at once.
I am probably a swordfighting octopus. In case you can't tell.
