PostSubject: GC Members on LOA   29th August 2011, 8:27 pm

Hey all! My school days have begun once again and this year is my junior year. This will be my most important year thus far in my High School career, as I will be looking at colleges, taking SATs, and taking the PSSA's (A mandatory test in Pennsylvania. If you do not pass them, you do not graduate).

Long story short I will not be on here as often, (as some of you have probably noticed already :p ) but I will try to be on as much as I can. I cannot say for sure how long I can be on. I'm going to be honest; there probably will be days I will not be on here at all.

I figured I would give everyone a heads up if I disappear for a few days.

Also, if any admins or anyone else has any questions about my possible absence, please ask (:

And, good luck to everyone going back to school this year! Let's make this a good one!

And remember, school work before partayyss! (pfftt, right) Very Happy

Wink You are my kinda gal. When school starts, I vanish off the face of the earth. I am glad to see that you are very serious about your schooling! It truly pays off when trying to move forward in college, so give it your best!

Do not worry about your absence either, love. It will not be a problem when you go for your next promotion here. Wink

Smile Thanks so much Jupiter! It's only day two and I have a lot of homework already! Although, I did take a nice long nap when I got home...Waking up at six compared to eleven is not easy haha :p

I am trying to do my best in school, these honors classes better be worth it lol

And thank you for understanding! I just didn't want people to think i've just vanished or had a heart attack from school or something (which I wouldn't be surprised if that happened) Very Happy

Perhaps you can get a bit of a scholarship for when you apply for colleges with all of your good grades! I went to community school for my associates and worked really hard for top grades, which gave me a scholarship for a four-year college. So you taking honors courses will definitely be worth it, I am sure!

Oh gosh, waking up at six sounds brutal! I do not know how I will handle waking up super early myself. Gyah. Naps are essential. ^^

I really hope so! And I also plan on taking AP classes my senior year to get a head start on college credits. They say it's never too soon for that...lol

And it's more like 6:30, me and my brother fight over the bathroom since he's out of college now and has a big boy job haha.

And I do not think I could survive without naps. Seriously, they keep my sanity :p

AP classes seem tough, but they are worth it. I took AP Calc in high school (because then i was thinking about an engineering degree) and then when i decided to do art, i only had one math to take because i had a credit. Also some colleges let you test out of some of the early 100 level stuff. And if you think you are up for the challenge, honors courses in college and worth it too. They are much tougher, but really worth the extra effort.

Yeah I plan on doing AP classes because I really want credits, lol, and because it's now mandatory for me. After I am done with physics, I have to take an AP class because that's a senior course. As much as I'm not looking forward to the work, it'll be worth it in the end.

A lot of colleges do that testing out thing too. Some colleges require you to take a language and since I'm already in my third year of spanish, my teacher says if needed, I could definitely test out of the class.

And i'm cringing thinking about honors courses in college. They already challenge me enough (let's not reflect back on honors chemistry last year) but it's something I will definitely think about. Smile

Thanks for some of the advice (:

Yeah no prob! I was really glad i decided to take the freshman college english and history classes instead of the regular ones. At my school, the regular ones would have been so boring for me and way too easy. In the honors at my college, we covered the epic poems, The Illiad, the Odyssey for the first semester and second semester was the christian epics, The Divine Comedy and Paradise Lost. Made for real interesting stuff! Lots of essays thought...lots of essays.

The only reason i decided to quit with honors classes (which at times i wish i hadn't) was that at my school, all the honors kids had to go to this one big class thing once a week for random lectures about really dumb stuff. I think it was to try to get the honors students to feel part of a community thing, but i felt it was a waste of time. It sure would have been nice to graduate with honors on my degree though. :/

PostSubject: LOA-ish: not gone, but slightly distracted   3rd September 2011, 1:18 am

Like a bunch of other people here I've just started term, and my courses this year are super-intensive ones. I'll absolutely be around but I have a lot of reading and writing to do. So I'll be quieter! You may have already noticed...

PostSubject: LOA for the School Term   3rd September 2011, 1:21 pm

Hallo all,

A few of our members here have posted announcements that they will be a bit MIA as school is about to begin. I imagine that others will also be finding themselves disappearing due to school (that education is important!). Anyway, I am making this thread for any of your who may want to announce their drop in activity here or possible complete absence, etc.

Feel free to update us as frequently as you would like! And the best of luck to you all.

My class we read the Odyssey in middle school...The high school English teachers are angry because they like to teach it...haha.

And I will NOT be doing AP Euro senior year just because I've heard from other kids it's too hard and I'm not nearly as smart as some of those other kids. And history doesn't really interest me that much anyways. I mean, don't get me wrong, history is definitely important but I can't sit there in class and be ecstatic to learn about everything. haha.

And the first day of school I had to turn in an english packet and an essay. Next week we have to take accelerated reader tests on the books (Ethan Frome and Grapes of Wrath). I loathed Grapes of Wrath. Ethan From actually interested me.

Honors classes is definitely something I will be looking into for the future.

What degree did you get in college? Smile

I graduated with a BFA in Visual Arts.

I actually got really interested in history when i got into college because I had teachers that were really enthusiastic about it and made the classes fun and interesting. History can be boring if a teacher just makes you go on about dates and blah blah, but once you learn all the real good juicy stuff, its way more interesting. I am kinda tempted to go back and take history courses just to take some. I'd like to study American history more in depth and history after WWII since that is never really taught in grade school. There is so much to learn from early American history and post WWII history to modern times and it can really show you why things are the way they are today. Its really important.

But i digress...I probably should have gotten a minor in history or something but man i'm already screwed with my art degree as far as jobs go. XD hah!

Thanks, Becks! <3

I know I already announced this, but school is picking up speed (it's been three weeks) and I'm doing really well! I want to stay focused. So I will try to be on here but I can't always guarantee!

I am so terribly sorry that I haven't been on in a loonnngg time! I literally haven't been on a computer in forever! Actually, I lied. I do go on a lot at school, but I have been cranking out papers and powerpoints like nobody's business. lol

I apologize that I haven't bee on in forever! I should be on within the next couple of days (my schedule changes depending on the school work, etc)

BUT, I do promise to try to get on more...not being on here for two weeks was loonnggg.

STARTING OCTOBER 3RD, I will be in school. Since my schedule isn't the same, I might be able to pop in every once in a while, but for a limited time.

I don't know for sure yet when my classes will be over, but I only have four per semester.

Just leaving a heads up.

Due to computer issues and the very strong fact that my computer may have to head back to the manufacture, I probably will not be checking the forum this weekend. For the time I have my computer, I need to concentrate on trying to finish as many commissions as I can before it goes back. So sorry everyone! ^^;

Oh goodness, best of luck to you! I hope that your computer is alright. :\

Good luck on those commissions as well! I would ask you what they are about, but you probably do not have time to elaborate.

PostSubject: LoA: School and stuff.   23rd October 2011, 10:49 am

Sorry I've been MIA. As I posted in the LOA thread for school, I have a lot of stuff on my plate. My thesis is due in... two and a half weeks or so (*breathes into a paper bag*) and my other classes are obviously not letting up, so I'm just really sparse. Sad Plus I have THE PLAGUE which makes me not want to do anything. :\ I may need to see a doctor if I don't start feeling better this week. I couldn't eat on Friday because my throat hurt so badly for the whole day. *PUNT!*

You can still reach me on my tumblr or on skype. With skype, I'm just invisible so I'm actually there most of the time. I just feel bad going visible and then having someone talk to me when I'm doing things at my desk or running around. So... if you talk to me and I don't answer right away, I will eventually. <33 I'm just busy and trying to keep my head above water.

Thanks GCers!

PostSubject: LOA - - personal issues/school   23rd October 2011, 3:03 pm

Sadly, I haven't been feeling so well. This unknown illness is really affecting my train of thought. Also, there has been so many social issues that I just cannot deal with it anymore.

School has become harder with these projects and I really cannot afford to sacrifice time to be here. So, I'll be gone until Thanksgiving (or maybe Christmas break).

My depression is beginning to return and plus things on here are starting to burn me out.

Hopefully, I will be well enough to return, but only time will tell.

Until then, sayonara.

-Aqua
