Political Debates Drive Me Insane

What is with this crazy weather?  When I went to school this morning I didn't even need a jacket!  Then, it started storming in the middle of English.  This wasn't a small storm either.  It was a large storm that you'd expect to see in spring.  I'll admit that it was a lot colder after the storm, but the temperature is supposed to go up again over the next several days.  This is one crazy winter.

The juniors took the ASVAB this morning which meant there were only six of us in AP U.S. history, and we did nothing.  I'm definitely not complaining about that.  Especially since we had a timed essay on Beowulf in AP English right after history.  That didn't actually go that badly.  We knew what it was about ahead of time and could write some notes.  I had notes and an idea of what I wanted to say, but I wasn't entirely sure how to say it.  It was one of those cases where I started writing and it just happened though.  It could still have been better, but for a timed essay it went rather well.

Our current events class was spent watching the latest Republican debate the entire time.  I really wish they would stop attacking each other.  It's just annoying, and it definitely doesn't make me want to vote for any of them.  It just makes me hate them.  Although I was really happy when Santorum called Romney out for not answering his question directly.  I wish that would happen more often.  I hate when they start rambling on about stuff that has nothing to do with the question they were asked (which is almost all of the time).  It just drives me insane.

We started a project in probabililty and statistics that involves sports statistics.  I am not a sports fan.  We had to pick one baseball pitcher, one football quarterback, and one basketball point guard.  Now, if I was watching a game of any one of those sports, I could follow it pretty well (especially basketball).  However, I don't really know any players, and I have no idea what all of the statistics mean.  It took me forever to find them, and then there were all these abbreviations and I had no idea what they meant.  It was just confusing.  When I finally did figure everything out and got around to making my frequency table, I didn't have enough classes.  (Don't worry if you don't know what that means.  It's not important.)  I took it up to the teacher, and he said I'd worked everything out right, it just ended up that way.  These are the reasons I'm not a math person... (And definitely not a statistics person.)
