Soo today pretty much sucked... a lot.
First, I left my cell in the car that I got dropped off in, so i was cell phone deprived all day... but that's nothing, really.
In chemistry we got back the big test, and of course i completely failed. Yay.
In psych we took a test... which was ok-ish...
Then during studio art, I decided to go talk to my counselor and ask her to switch me out of chemistry into astronomy, since I can't do chemistry to save my life, and trust me, i've tried everthing.
I go see my counselor and tell her that I want to switch out. Without even considering it she tells me to tell her why and what I have done to try to improve... so I go on and on and on about tutors and hours of studying and failing anyway and blah blah, only to her going "All I can do is move you down to regular chemistry."
"...why cant I just switch out of chem altogether?"
"Because youre taking it in college and you need a class that lays down the foundations."
"um.. im planning on going to an Art college i doubt ill be taking chemistry there, plus I already took Matter and Energy."
So this went on for a while and I couldn't change her mind. So, being all upset I went back to art, and then on to lunch. During lunch I told Anna about what happened and she told me my counselor was just being retarded and I should go try again, so I decided I have nothing to lose.
This is when my day just got worse..
I went back, and before I had a chance to say anything she goes, "Are you here about Chemistry again?"
"Yes... I just dont see why you cant switch me out im not going to be taking Chem in college"
"You dont know that"
and then in the midst of me trying to argue back i could feel myself on the verge of crying. and she goes
"Dont cry, it makes me feel bad. (right) Ill tell you what, take regular chemistry for two weeks and then ill call you back and if youre still having difficulty I'll switch you out."
I nodded, still on the verge of tears, grabbed a tissue and ran out. I ran to the nearest bathroom, which was fortunately empty, went into a stall and started bawling for about 5 minutes, until I heard someone come in and I had to leave.
I don't think I could possibly explain how much chemistry frustrates me. NO tutoring doesnt help, ive tried it. And my teacher sucks. Or I suck, I guess, whatever...
So then all day I was just pissy and hated life, and then 7th period I remembered I had a precalculus test... which I did through teary eyes. I ended up skipping two problems but I think (hope) I got the rest.
*sigh*....idk... i hate being so retarded at chemistry.
In other news... I got a haircut yesterday :)
I went from pretty long hair to very short...it took some getting used to, but I like it.
yea, well.. thats all..
till next time
