im bored.. 28 minutes till the bell rings.. 6 minutes break and then american history.. but we're probably gonna do something about the eletion tomorrow... so i hope it's gonna be better than usually... but yaaaay, only about 36 hours until the polls close here... even though i'm sure that there will be people still standing in line... yesterday they were waiting for 5 1/2 hours.. and that's only early voting... but in miami-dade county there were people waiting for 9 hours... it's a good sign i guess... people wanna be part of history.. and i'll be a part of history, too... i'm volunteering at 7 AM tomorrow.. on my day off... can't believe im doing this... i think ima write something about volunteering for muy us history class... extra credit :D oh and btw i have 33 "i voted early" stickers for extra credit in anatomy :D cu

YES WE DID!
we just came back from a about 3 hour ride from up north to see the launch of the endeavor. doug came over at about 8:30 am, then we went up north at about 10 am, stopped for lunch and at a outlet mall, doug and i bought a christmas gift for vince.. an army book, really cool! anyway, we arrived at cocoa beach at about 5 and since we ordered the table for about 6 we went to the beach, which was right next to the restaurant. the food was delicious and they had a countdown on tv. about 25 minutes before the actual launch we went outside, "the kids" (doug, hyae ju, mimi, benni, jonas and me) pretty close to the water and the adults way back somewhere... anyway everybody was watching and you could actually tell where to look pretty good cause it had flashing lights and of course the actual firewhatever of the shuttle. we exchanged phonenumbers and at 7:55 (i think they did it on time) you we saw the shuttle go up. it looked like a mini-sun but not as round. it was really, really bright and we were able to see it for about 10 minutes. i think it was completely worth skipping school and driving up there for 3 or 4 hours! and tomorrow we're probably gonna go to the everglades :D gators :D
oh and yesterday we got our report cards.. i have almost straight a's.. and i brought my anatomy grade up to a b+... i had a b in the class but an a on the exam so i have a overall grade of a b+. everything else is a... class grades and exam grades.... haha, who thought like 3 years ago that i was gonna a all my classes? ^^
well anyway, i still have sand between my toes, it sucks, but the sand on the beach was really white and soft.. i loved it. and doug did too... it was really romantic.. standing there facing the ocean, behind us there was the sunset and our feet were actually in the ocean...
well, im really really tired, so cu
i just had my first bug in my room... a big one.. i freaked out... pam thinks thats a german thing, mo was like that too... pam but it outside... it's even still alive... isn't she great? didn't even kill that thing... i was so freaked out... i looked beside me on my homework and guess what's crawling on it... i almost dropped my computer... thanks for the queen size btw ... but anyway... next week we're going to drive down to the keys with benni, jonas and hyae ju, i'm sure it's gonna be fun, but it would be more fun with doug... 5 days without him.. oh and today there was some testing going on at school, so nobody came and all the juniors and seniors were kept in holding rooms from 7:40 till 11:15... pam dropped me off at school at 10:45... i was scoring bone tests in mrs. bond-jacksons class, that was fun.. i had the key and i know all 64 answers by heart now ^^ and i had to score doug's test... he has a 71... poor guy.. but he was lucky she gave extra credit to everyone... i got a 89... 1 more point and i'd have an a... but whatever, 89 is pretty good... more than most people got... i even scored a test of a guy that only had 10 right answers... well but after that half an hour in the holding room i went to my math class... we were exactly 6 people... and we got extra-credit for attending :D well ima go to sleep now... bye
i just changed my schedule for next semester... now i have
1. creative photo
2. AP Calculus AB
3. AP Euro History
4. English Honors III
creative photo is probably gonna be the easiest one... but not really easy, cause you have to be creative (oh really?!) and i think there a whole bunch of projects...
then Advanced Placement Calculus AB -> collegelevel math :D im missing the pre-calc and regular calculus but i think i can handle it with my german background.. :D
then third period advanced placement euro history, im going to have that class with doug, and i hope im going to lern something... and im actually pretty darn sure i will. im so looking forward to that class... history where you actually learn something and it might be interesting to see the american point of view on european history... also college level :D
then 4th block english honors III, im supposed to have an english class and i want honors, cause i wanna have a little challenge...
next semester is gonna be so freakin much work, but im sooo darn looking foward to it... no more boredom at school :D
and AP classes bring the gpa up... cause an A in an ap class counts for 6 points and an A in a regular class only counts for 4 points... the higher the better... but honestly, i dont expect to have a's in my ap classes... that's gonna be hard, but i'll like it, im sure :D so, only 4 minutes left, ill write again some other time... wish me luck for my dinner tonight... schnitzel w/ bratkartoffeln whatever that means in english and then applestrudel for dessert... yay :D
we just came back from the keys.. beautiful little islands.... i love them... you look to your right: water, to your left: water, in the front: water, in the back: water... yea, that shower was amazing ^^ no, im just kidding... the keys are pretty small.... and really beautiful... key west, especially... a town, right on the water with the southernmost point of the us... and a really cool sunset party :D and we went to a turtle hospital with a baby turtle that was hardly as big as a quarter....
but well... today we drove back and of course, through miami... it was kind of on the way anyway, and you just have to see miami... we went to south beach.. beautiful, white sand, blue water, blue sky (btw. it's still hot here... tshirt and shorts weather :D) miami is a nice city... nothing to stay longer but nice... my opinion. anyway, on our way home, pam wanted to put on the gps and stuff, so she parked the car.. and when she wanted to pull out, some guy pulled right in our way... my first american car accident :D and guess what... those guys in the car were illegal immigrants... of course, it's miami ^^ but today wasn't a good day for pam... she was tired and had to drive and she forgot to turn off her car when we left to walk around south beach and then the accident...
