Walk to School

Thursday, May 21, 2009 § 3

Today, cause of scheduling issues, I didn’t have to go to school until 11:00, but because both my parents work, I had to walk the slightly more than two miles to my high school. It was (and still is) really nice out, so the walk wasn’t a chore at all.

Here’s a picture from the walk.

On a happier note, there’s also this.

I went to the beach with Callie, my dog today. There were a ton of other dogs there, and we both had a lot of fun.

AP Test

Saturday, May 16, 2009 § 0

On Thursday morning I took my ap world test.

It wasn’t that much fun.

The multiple choice part was okay, I don’t have a problem with multiple choice tests, I could pretty much do them all day (not really, but whatever).

The essays sucked though. They were on really random topics, and we had to write three of them.

One was on about change and continuity on the silk roads from 150BCE to 1450CE. That’s pretty much the vaguest question ever, but almost made it harder.

The compare and contrast essay was about racial ideologies (I’m not even sure I understood what that meant) and their effect on society in North America and Latin America. What?!?

I’d tell you about the multiple choice questions but I’m not allowed to talk about them. Ever. My score would become invalidated (gasp). It was crazy, after we took that part of the test they made us reseal the booklets.

I’m just glad its over.

Summer Job

Wednesday, May 6, 2009 § 0

Lately, I’ve been looking for a summer job. I don’t have that much planned this summer, just a summer school class (computer-aided drafting) for an applied arts credit and possibly a vacation sometime later.

With all my free time, I figured I might as well make some money too, so I started looking. I applied to a couple places, but I haven’t heard back yet.

A couple days ago my friend messaged me about a job opening at the place she worked, where she packages stationary for Pen at Hand, a online stationary store, in the owner’s living room.

I was excited, because she said if she recommended me, I would get the job.

The next day, after talking to her boss, she told me that the job didn’t work out. I was a little disappointed, but okay, so I asked her why?

She said that she told the owner about me and she (the owner) said, “Oh, I don’t hire boys, I like to keep this a girl’s club, but don’t report me or anything.”

I was shocked. That’s blatantly sexist and illegal, and it appears the owner knows and doesn’t care. I don’t want to make a huge deal about this as it’s just a summer job, and I wouldn’t want to work for a person who hires like that anyway, but its still kind of pathetic that this issue still exists.

Coming up on May 16 (four days before my birthday)I’ve got the AP test for World History. I’ve barely started studying.

Yesterday, I drove to Borders and bought a review book, brought it home and started reading it. I read through everything up until it started reviewing information, then I stopped.

Its gonna be a fun two weeks =].
