But I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep
Is it too late to drop? After having my partner not be here in lab and getting descriptions I can't really use, I'm not too excited about biology. It's not that I don't get the concepts because I do, but I can't show that I do if I have bad information. I don't think the teacher understands what I need at all. We watched a movie, and maybe the worksheet was Brailled, but I don't know where anything for this quarter is and I can't answer questions that I don't have. Tomorrow we're working with microscopes and I don't even want to think about it. If I'd been thinking, I would have tried to anticipate this stuff ahead of time. I struggle because I don't think the book is well written. You can't summarize something that's not well written in the first place? Chemistry was extremely cool last year, and I wish I could go back there. Maybe I could drop Biology and take something else. I've never wanted to drop a class so bad, not even as much as AP History. I know there are people who've survived science, and even some who like it, but I don't think I will be one of them this year. If you're actually still reading this and saying "This girl is really screwed up!" or "Typical teenage girl." I say "You're right." But it's my journal, and I'm not going to lie about who I am. I know I'm not thinking logically right now, but oh well! Okay, it's about 6 hours later than when I wrote the first part of the entry. I'm feeling much better about things now. I have more Braille, and my teacher is actually very aware of what's going on. It helps to be able to talk to her outside of class when both of us have more time. Today must have been "Everyone cause Nickie stress day!" A sprinkler head broke, so some of my usual routes to get from class to class were not available. I had to go through senior square. Not smart! And there was another fire alarm. Very disorienting. There was other stuff I can't go into here. I'm waiting for speech to start, and I haven't been home since 7 this morning. Hopefully I'll get home sometime before ten tonight because I have to pack for the Duluth meet which we leave for tomorrow. For now, I'm going to go. Hugs!!
