Yep, started up school again, and got through my first week! This is my last term in Cégep, so I got to choose which three science classes I wanted. Not to mention, on all days but Wednesday, I start my classes at 11 or 12 in the morning (though I start at 8 on Wednesday), so yay, no more waking up super early all the time! So here's an overview of my schedule, and my thoughts insofar.
11:00 to 2:00 - Organic Chemistry
2:10 to 4:00 - Communication and Discourse
11:00 to 2:00 - Advanced Calculus
2:10 to 4:00 - Electronics and Robotics
8:00 to 10:00 - Physical Education
10:00 to 12:00 - Communication and Discourse
2:10 to 5:00 - Organic Chemistry
11:00 to 2:00 - Electronics and Robotics
2:10 to 5:00 - Debates and Political Action
12:00 to 2:00 - Advanced Calculus
Online - Ethics and Politics
Now you know exactly where I am at all times.
Organic Chemistry - Well, not much to say about this, so far we mostly reviewed the important concepts we saw in General and Solution Chemistry, but we'll learn to name and draw organic molecules! Isn't that awesome? Not to mention the lab sequences, working with super dangerous thingies, oooOOoohhh.
Communication and Discourse - Yep, my fourth French class, much different from the other three because it's about talking instead of writing. And we all know I'm super good at talking, right? Though it's not so bad for the moment, and I like the teacher's way of doing things so far.
Advanced Calculus - I love this. All those weird theoretical notions that are completely useless in everyday life? Integrating the volume under a 3D surface and all that? That's the kind of stuff I love, ergo I love this class. So far, we've seen Euler's Formula and the hyperbolic functions, which are pretty awesome. Can't wait for more!
Electronics and Robotics - I love this too. While we're going to be doing a ton more electronics than robotics, creating and putting together circuits is pretty awesome, not to mention understanding them. I'm loving this class way to much already.
Physical Education - Well... Yeah.
Debates and Political Action - I didn't really expect to like this class, at first. Understandable, since I was hoping for Italian as my complementary course, but so far the teacher is pretty cool, and he's pretty much personalizing the content of the course to what we like! Not to mention, we don't have a single thing to do outside of class, so I suppose Thursday afternoons are something I'll be looking forward to.
Ethics and Politics - Online, so I haven't really done anything yet except look at the overview and how to do it, but it doesn't look so bad. Apparently this class is aimed towards science students, hence the Ethics part. Anyway, I'll just have to make sure to leave some time to do this class, and not procrastinate on it.
After all that? How about a little story?
So several years ago, when I was probably 9 or 10 years old, I was on one of those child scooters, and going down a hill (wheeee). Then there was a sewer grate, with its linear holes running parallel to the road. Going over it, my front wheel got stuck in one of the holes, and due to momentum, my face ran right into the cement. But! I had a helmet, with kept me from most of the potential damage, but still, one of my front teeth got chipped, a good few millimeters. So I had it repaired, though it was only meant to be a temporary repair, it never fell off so I left it that way.
... That is, of course, until Thursday, where I was eating a really tough cookie, and it broke off. So there I was, looking all silly with half a tooth missing for half of the day. So I had it repaired on Friday (I missed half my math class for it!), but once again, it's only temporary, so I'll be going to the dentist again in 2 weeks for a full repair of the tooth. Joy and stuff!
There was also a snow storm yesterday, meaning much shoveling for me to do today. Whoooooooooooooo. So I guess my life is exciting, for once. Fun school, fun tooth, fun snow, fun stuff.

yeah I made that, welcome to my profile if you got here because of it (3
We're pretty chill though, us two. We're like... SM rivals and stuff. Dope o7
On that note (and also to serve as a little update), I've been playing a lot of SM, both 4key and solo, because it's cool, yeah? I went ahead and downloaded a bunch of packs, ended up with over a thousand songs. Guess I had to expect that.
Anyway, took a little while to get used to the size of the window, I had to tinker with my noteskin to get the colors right (read: FFR style), and these strict timing windows are a little hard to get right, though I've been doing better. I'll be posting scores on the brag board in a short while, once I feel like it or get really awesome scores.
Besides that, I start up school again next week, on the 23rd. Boy do I look forward to that! It's my last term before heading out for University, crossing fingers for good grades! Plus my schedule is sweet, 4 days on 5 I start at 11 am or noon, yay for lazy mornings~ Though my complementary course is kinda sucky, I was hoping for Italian or something chill like that but I got a political debates course. Oh well, I guess I can do well in that too. In any case, at least I have cool stuff like organic chem and advanced calculus and robotics!

They're cool, go check them out.

My ear's pretty much healed now, so I can hear and all and I'm done with those ear drops, woohoo!
On another note, I was over to Ontario for 3 days and 2 nights, visiting my aunts and my grandparents. Much fun was had, I saw a movie with my brother (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and visited the Ontario Science Center. Also went on my first two airplane flights, to go and to return. The view from so high is impressive, especially with the rising sun illuminating the sea of clouds *_*
But on to the fun stuff, Christmas gifts! I got:
-A new keyboard (BETTER FFR)
-Inheritance (fourth Eragon book)
-Theories in 30 seconds (a science book)
-A digital multimeter (for electronic devices)
-A shirt (kinda plain though)
-A calendar (family tradition thing)
-A 25-piece magic square tile puzzle thing (it's actually really difficult)
Well that covers all I had on my mind. Cheers, and happy new year's day!

Rofl, ear problems (eczema in my right ear to be precise (yes, INSIDE my ear canal))
I'm half-deaf and playing is awkward as hell! As a matter of fact, anything involving sound and basically life in general sounds weird right now. The only thing I feel like doing is reading in silence. :/
