Final Exams Suck.

I wanna post something, but:
a) I dunno what
b) I gotta study for finals.

Schools almost over for me; I have one more exam tomorrow, then I'm done for the year! UGH! I do NOT want to study. I'm so tired, and I can't focus at all! My Ancient Civ. teacher told us exactly what to study, but it's a lot, and it's very tedious work. My study guide for his midterm was 10 pages!
Fortunately, my most important exam is out of the way- English. I want to be a writer, and my grade on the exam determines weather I'll be in Honors English or not. In January, I applied to take Honors English-the highest level English class for sophomores at my school- and I was accepted. However, to be in honors, one has to have at least a "B" average at the time of applying, and at the end of the school year. I currently have a "B-." One thing I like about my school is that semester exams only count for 1/7Th of your grade in that class, because its hard to change your final grade- If you're doing really good and you bomb your exam, you still do great at the end of the semester. Unfortunately, I really need to change my grade in English! I have to get 7 points higher than my current average to move up a letter grade, so I need to get a 91 on my exam to get a "B."

I just checked my school's online grade book, and I actually have a 86 in that that class- so that means I need an 93 on my exam, which I cannot find anywhere!

Tomorrow at exactly 10:00AM I will be a sophomore. YAY.

I can't believe it. I'm only a freshman and I can't wait to get out of here. Did you know there's an actual high school named hell? Seriously, who names a school- the epitome of torture for all teenagers- hell? The only thing I would "like" (lack of better term) about that would be being able to say at the end of the school year/graduation "I can't wait to get out of hell!"

Today I auditioned for my schools select traveling choir. Everyone who auditioned made it- only eight people auditioned. Honestly, that's not that bad for my school- we have 160 students in the high school and 400 in the entire school. It worked out perfectly, though; four girls auditioned and four guys auditioned. Technically, I'm not officially in until tomorrow when the results are posted, but when you're one of eight auditioning, it's a shoo-in.

This summer is going to be so chaotic. In less than a week, I'm going to Costa Rica on a mission trip; two weeks later I go to Peru for two weeks; and the first two weeks of August, I'll be in Ukraine!

The Summer of Chaos starts tomorrow.
