tomorrow we're gonna give our 'how to write a sonnet' speech in front of the class. we're SO not prepared. gotta focus on memorizing what we want to say. the outline doesn't help much.

we FINALLY got the speech going last night but it turned out 'informational' not 'introductory', so we had to rewrite the whole thing today. anyways, it's ALMOST done now. got some transitions to put in and stuffs, but then it'll be DONE. woot! then we hafta practice SAYING it, heh.

um, yesterday was our 1st day of classes. we're taking public speaking and pc hardware & software support. i think they're both gonna be cool. we haven't decided yet what the frontrunning teams for each class are gonna be. prolly me + merrick + kv for public speaking.....and then kv + wyatt + merrick for pc hardware. so yea. we'll decide tomorrow after class meeting #2.

classes are tuesday & thursday 11a-12:20p and 1p-3:15p. we hafta get up just before 9am and leave for the bus stop @ 9:25. then we catch the 3:45p bus from the college to downtown and the 4:15p bus home. so we're gone for like ever just for 2 classes. anyways, we're gonna hafta pack a lunch cuz that's too long not to eat anything real.

today was our LAST DAY of class this semester! we've got plans for holiday break too! :)

we took the algebra final exam today and WE GOT 80%!! YAAYY! that makes our current total 77.6%, which is a 2.5! not up to our usual standards, but wth!! *grin*
buginarug: an androgynous blond young person leaning against a mirror and looking at the reflection (Default)
so we've got our math final exam on tuesday. me & ^merrick are studying the 'review' practice problems, but it's like we're learning this stuff for the 1st time. not ALL of it, but a LOT is new to us. we're being kinda lazy about studying, but tomorrow is gonna be our big study day.

next semester we get some different types of classes, but i think we learned our lesson this semester....don't give classes to insiders we can't fully trust! ^wyatt will get his chance to participate in our computer class next semester, but he's NOT gonna be the ONLY one taking it.

he's still merged with ^toby as of today. honestly, i'm GLAD. i hope they stay merged till AFTER the final exam.

yup

we're doing pretty darn good in math without ^wyatt/^toby! *shrug*
buginarug: an androgynous blond young person leaning against a mirror and looking at the reflection (Default)
^wy says he's gonna tutor me & ^merrick in math. provided that, yunno, our communication is good enough to talk with each other..... i say we'll MAKE it work. i'm kinda excited about learning intermediate algebra. i was there for our algebra classes in 5th/6th grade, so i've got a basic idea how it works — and that's true for ^merrick too. the biggest issue i think is gonna be making sure no one can listen in on where we're being tutored.
buginarug: an androgynous blond young person leaning against a mirror and looking at the reflection (Default)
we basically came out as DID to our algebra prof in an email. i dunno if it'll do any good, but i sure hope it won't do anything bad! i know ^wy would tell me i'm being too cheerful, like i don't get the reality of our situation, but i like to think it WILL work out ok in the end.
buginarug: an androgynous blond young person leaning against a mirror and looking at the reflection (Default)
so our special services meeting kinda sucked. all of the accommodations we asked for were 'not legal', but a few of them could be REQUESTED from the profs IF they wanna go along with it. also the lady we met with didn't GET our disability — which is totally cuz our psychologist decided it'd be better not to PUT dissociation in the letter cuz nobody would get it and it would end up being spread around. (i woulda argued, but we didn't wanna WAIT any longer for the stupid letter!) if she'd said 'dissociative disorder' and EXPLAINED what that meant, then the special services lady might've GOTTEN why we asked for some things. we DO now have a letter to be sent to the profs about the 'legal' accommodations, but it's not what we WANTED.

yay ^kv!

^kv got us a 100% on the state & local government midterm. there were only 2 of the 100's in the whole class. YAY ^KV!!
buginarug: an androgynous blond young person leaning against a mirror and looking at the reflection (Default)
so yesterday was eventful! ^kv & ^merrick went to government class and did this little presentation of proposal 3 to the whole class. it went SUPER well!

another classmate group's proposal was to stop the 'emergency manager' law. for anybody who doesn't know, an 'emergency manager' is somebody appointed (usually by the governor) to take the place of an elected official when a district is failing. anyways, that doesn't REALLY matter here, and i DON'T wanna discuss politics, but the definition matters later, k?

so then ^wyatt & ^merrick go to algebra class and everything's generally ok till the prof tries to get everybody into groups and ^wyatt can't handle it and they dissociate and ^THE PLANT shows up. the prof can't get the plant to respond (duh!!) so she calls security and this campus police officer comes in and escorts whoever's at the front to this little backroom in the library.

we got asked a TON of questions and ^merrick kinda came back to answer them. she finally said something about dissociation and the security guy doesn't know what that means, and ^merrick's attempts to define it make him think psychosis which is BAD cuz if he thought we were psychotic, we woulda gotten paramedics and emergency room and ALL that stuff we REALLY didn't want/need. SOOOO finally ^merrick mentions multiple personality disorder and he GOT that, so yea.

um.....so he makes all these offers of calling people and we SRSLY just wanna leave cuz a reasonable insider was at the front so everything really was ok, but he lets us go eventually. ^merrick talked to the prof and she recommended a 'special services' letter, which we were like: 'yea, i'm working on getting one, but it isn't ready yet.' (we're gonna email the psychologist TODAY and ask her to have the letter ready by our appt next monday....yeesh!) but she's gonna be careful about assigning us into groups now, which will be good but srsly.....

later on we were talking to mom and we thought of something. our 'emergency manager' generally ends up being ^the plant, which is only SLIGHTLY better than ^pretty little beast, so we TOTALLY need to appoint a decent emergency manager. ^merrick thinks it should be ME. we're gonna have an inside meeting to discuss it, but i bet I'M gonna be our emergency manager.

i'm awesome like that.

thursday night we talked to dad about the dissociation & school. he doesn't get the switching at school, like we should understand and control it, and it made us think we REALLY need to find out what our triggers are.

most of them are a total mystery to us. i mean at school we tend just to have the right insider at the front at the beginning of class, just cuz they're needed and their skills fit, BUT if they get knocked from the front then they can't always come back. so that's a trigger too, of kicking the insider out AND of bringing a new insider to the front.

anyways, it'll be good for us if we find what the triggers are.

ugh, the DID is really messing us up at school. i know we're gonna have the new psychologist write us a 'special services' letter (we kinda gave up on getting a letter from the psychiatrist) but i dunno how much help it'll do us in algebra. last winter fundamentals of algebra was our better class, this term the dissociation is getting in the way of our success. ugh!

good things about ^kv going to government class = he's interested, he's confident in speaking, he has opinions, he pays attention and takes good notes

bad things about ^kv going to government class = nobody else can READ his notes

*laugh*

first day

started classes today. we've got 'state & local government' and 'intermediate algebra'. the former starts at 11am and the latter at 12:30pm (10 mins after the former ends). i dunno how we're gonna arrange our fronting schedule for these classes. as long as we all get the information this time, anything could be ok.

i HATE typing in normal 'correct' qwerty form. i say we can learn separately so i can keep typing the GOOD way & everybody else can type the new horrible way! but we co-run too much ^merrick says so we ALL gotta change our ways. GRAH!!

the testing center in the community college has this entryway with an office and backpack storage spot on the left and a glass panel where you can see into the testing area on the right. this is so the staff can look into the testing area and make sure nobody's cheating or whatever. and there's a sign taped to the glass:

do not tap on the glass!
this is not a zoo.
