I started writing one page (minimum) of dialogue a day. I call it my Daily Dialogue!!! yay, obvious-ness.
but I suppose the more dialogue I write, the more ideas I will have and the better I will get at writing them. last night I wrote three pages <3
I keep bombing the tests. I still have a B+ average for the class – but the TEST GRADES. I got a 52 on the last one. so horrible. I feel so dumb – I’ve never felt this dumb before.
I got an AP Psychology workbook from Cliffs, and I talked to my teacher and agreed that weekly tutoring will help a lot. so.
oh. and my english class. I wrote about it in another entry – for my “keep up with homework” one. I feel so DUMB in that class – because we never do any meaningful work. and I’m pretty sure I haven’t turned in like five assignments, because I don’t see their point. bad, bad, bad.
so much. I’m in an “honors” class, so you’d think I’m being challenged and interested. yet – I’m not. Far from it, in fact. Furthermore, the teacher is a self-righteous jackass. he says he’s open minded but when your opinion conflicts his own, he has snide remarks and condescending comments. his assignments are crap – all they are is busy work. we have to outline a book we’re reading. make a character “map”, a setting “map” and a plot “map”. useful – yes. but not challenging. if you’re in an honors class you shouldn’t have to write about characters and setting. we should be analyzing the characters and setting, not regurgitating facts. I am THISCLOSE to refusing to do any of the work in the class – BAD. I’m pretty sure I’m missing work because I don’t do the assignments – because they’re pointless and dumb.
and while I know that AP English Composition will be far too much for me to handle, especially this late into the year – I’m seriously considering switching in. I guess I’ll talk to the AP teacher and see what he has to say.
