Oh the Olympics

February 25, 2006 Leave a comment

Today marks the second week of the 2006 Olympics at Torino, or Turin – whichever one you want to say. Today, Canada has won it's nineteenth and twentieth medal, a gold and a bronze in 5000m Women's Speedskating. Cindy Classen and Claire Hughes, dam! Man I can't believe that Canada is already at twenty medals. In Salt Lake, we only got seventeen medals. Now we are tied for forth. I've been keeping up to date with all this Olypmic stuff and it is tough watching the number one nation in hockey get destroyed by Finland, Switzerland, and Russia. It sucks. Wayne should have picked the younger guys like Spezza, Crosby, or Staal. Well, they are still young and obviously, they will still have their next chance in Vancouver. For many of the players on this year's roster, it will mostly likely be their last. These players include Pronger, Sakic, Brodeur, and Blake (I think he's on the team). T'was a valiant effort for those guys eh? But not enough. It sucks. On a brighter note, the Women's team won gold against Sweden. I can't beleive Sweden beat the Americans, ha, then finally we get more variety in Women's hockey. I saw that shoot out between Sweden and America. DAM NO ONE COULD GET IT IN THE NET! Those who actually got it past the goalie…missed the net or hit the cross bar. Only one player from Sweden actually got a goal. I was so nervous when they had to recall one of the American's missed shot because the Swedish goaltender came out of the crease too early. She tried again…AND GOT STONED!!!! It was very exciting. I didn't find any of Canada's matches exciting though. Pounding Italy 16-0 was really boring. I watched the second period and Canada scored two goals in the first two minutes. I turned the television off knowing it was totally over. The next game against Russia, I dind't even bother to watch because I knew Russia would get owned. I was right, 12-0. Then all of a sudden Canada gets criticism because of racking up the goals. Dam, hasn't the Canadian coach told her players to take it down a notch. I remember when my teacher told us to do that. It was in elementary school, we were owning a team like 6-0, and my teacher said to tone it down and just dump and pass. No more scoring. Oh yeah, Canada's curling team, won gold against Finland. Pay back for what happened in hockey. Mr. Gushue and his kick ass curling techniques, lol. All of a sudden after watching that match, I want to go curl some stones. Curling is like golf. It's boring to watch but very fun to play. Everyone should try it. It's a lot harder than it looks too. I mean, trying to stay in that lunged position for a while is a killer. It's all about strategy too. It's much like Warcraft; you build your defence and your attacking stones, dam and just slide away! NICE!
That's it for now toodlez, I could write more, but…my parents are home and I'm supposed to be doing hwk! HAHAHA. Now I gotta help them with the groceries

So much work

February 9, 2006 Leave a comment

Today, I have so much homework. I can not believe it…actually I do believe it. This is what you get when you take Geometry and Physics in the same semester. Unfortunately for me, I did not have a choice, I wanted Calculus this semester but no, the people at Guidance wanted me to switch because having a Calculus background will help me in Geometry. So far, I fail to see that. It is only the third day of the semester, so I will hae to wait and see.

Today in Physics, OMG, we learned how to find out what the proportion constant is equal to by looking at a graph. That was freaky. We used Logs to find out what K equals to. I hate Log and ln though. They piss me off, but I will have to get over it in the future as I will need to know how to use each function as a mathemetician like person. Maybe I'll become a teacher.

I have so much homework to do today. I should have finished my religion homework. Holy shit, this sucks.

Why do we use religious references when we curse out loud? It's contradictory but yet, pleasing to the ear. So simple, but yet, so hard.

Second Semester

February 6, 2006 Leave a comment

Today was the first day of second semester. I can not wait to do my Physics and Algebra. Oh how I loath Chemistry. At least in those two courses, I will have a clue about whatever they are talking about. I went to my first period classes, and my average dropped in all my courses except in Comm-tech. I dropped four percent in Chemistry and Calculus, and three percent in Computer Science. Not fun at all. I'm not sure I will be getting into any University any more. There is a chance, but, a slim chance. I will probably retake Chemistry again if I have to, but we will see about that.

I went to Algebra class, and boy did my teacher complicate things a lot. Everything was find until he started explaining how you can lose your right to drop a test in the class. Very complicated, but all I know is, be a good student, and never be late. Religion was hilarious with Hasiuk. I did not know that my forty dollar religion text book will save me from a 9mm handgun. Anything else higher than that or higher than a 22, will definitately kill me. The 9mm is 'gangster' and I can attach it to a chain and wear it as a bullet proof vest. I can get another one and put it around my back and I'm covered for life. Well, until I have to hand it back in. Dr. K, well, there are only five white people in my class, and three Middle-Eastern people. The rest are Asians. I am really surprised. Half the class are Koreans who need ESL. They are totally going to get owned by Dr. K. Ha, Physics with Defina is fun, except for that this week we have to make our own lab experiment that will take around 'ten' hours to do. He did the experiment himself and for a guy with a double major in Physics to do a lab in three hours, dam thats one LONG lab. It is going to be fun. Looks like I won't be able to see Canada kick ass in the Olympics.

The best part about second semester is that, almost all of my classes have around twenty people in them. Only religion class (which everyone has to take) has thirty students. That is all, jeez. Its going to be fun…and hot in semester two.
