At least this essay is sort of interesting! My last essays were about Why Tom Bombadil Was In The Book and Not the Movie, Why Aragorn Did Not Want To Be King, What Made the World of Fahrenheit 451 Dystopic, and Write One Sentence That Is Half a Page!

This essay is about Whether the Nuclear War At the End of Fahrenheit 451 Was Realistic or Not
I took first at 2013 States as a 6th grader in Meteorology!!!

2014 State Results:

Anatomy: 2nd
Can't Judge A Powder: 9th
Crime Busters: 1st
Heredity: 3rd
Meteorology: 3rd
Sounds of Music: 2nd

2015 Events: Anatomy, Crave The Wave, Crime Busters, Experimental Design, Meteorology, Picture This

So, yes, my essay is looking pretty good when compared to what you have to do :-)

You have classes today? We don't even have classes today... but I do have midterms tomorrow and Thursday, psets due Wednesday and Friday, and a programming assignment due in like 3.5 hours. Huzzah for the quarter system? :P
Yeah, we always have classes on President's Day, because APPARENTLY losing two Mondays is no bueno. Although you would think they would figure out a way to structure everything, since President's Day is, you know, a national holiday?
Hmm, we totally lose two Mondays every winter quarter. Not really sure how classes compensate. Probably just by accelerating everything. :| Though I guess I shouldn't complain - it was my choice to take 15 engineering units, a 4-unit intensive writing/public speaking course, and work at a lab, after all...

If most classes at your college are either M/W or T/Th, one potential solution to the losing-too-many-Mondays problem could be to make some Tuesdays follow the Monday class schedule, thereby equalizing the number of days of the M/W classes with the number of days of the T/Th classes.

It really sucks when you have to go to a hobby shop nearby to get materials for building, however a winter storm prevents travel thus impairing me from fixing my building event since I dont have materials. This all with competition being in 4 days >:(

What competition? Would it happen to be New Albany?

*shrug* No clue what they do to compensate.
