I fail at profiles.

No, I really do. I never know what to write! I mean, this is it, my one chance to intrigue or captivate or amuse, or whatever compels us to leave a comment and (hopefully) make a new friend.

Well, I guess I should start by saying that I am a fangirl. There is nothing I love more than gushing about an anime series. Particularily shoujo. Oh, shoujo...how I love you, with all your rainbows and sparkles and pretty boys.

My Rating Scale (just so you know...)

5 - Sheer brillance, absolutely perfect and amazing and fantastic.

4.5 - Adore it with my whole heart, and I still think it's brilliant and all, just not at the level of a five.

4 - Still amazing, but not obsession worthy.

3.5 - Great, just not... fabulous. I'll probably never rewatch it, but it was worth at least one viewing.

3 - Eh... kind of average. Potential for something greater, but...

2.5 - Meh. Take it or leave it, I guess.

2 - Not my cup of tea.

1.5 - Really, really bad. Like, seriously bad.

1 - Even worse.

.5 - Pure garbage. 'Nuff said.

Yeah, I think the fact thay you chat online with proper grammar/syntax indicates you don't have much to worry about with English. =)

If you think you did well on the Language exam you probably did - 5 isn't all that difficult if you write decently.  In all truth, though, Language doesn't really count for much (at least from the schools I've looked at); Language exempted me from English 100, whereas Lit exempted me from 100/205 (historical literature).  I'll say with certainty, though, that if you did good on Lang, Lit is basically the same exam just with different content.  Biggest thing is just building your vocabularly.

And nothing wrong with not being a math person.  To be honest, I always was good at math but I didn't like doing it until I got to calculus.  Calculus basically puts everything you learn into applicable terms, so it's a lot more fun to work with.  Technically I only became a math person very recently. ><

I think I ultimately saved up about $25,000 with my job, and was able to buy and pay off my car entirely on my own ($9000 after taxes) as well as 3 years of insurance ($3500 XD) and two full years of CC tuition/books. I've been leeching free living expenses by staying at home, though, so that's been a definite help. Looking to move out in the beginning of August, and while the autonomy will be nice, I don't think the rent charge will be. ><

But you've got a few months to decide so don't stress too much. Where are you working? =)

Oh wow, no kidding - busy indeed.  Where's your AP Calc, though?!  The AP Calc exam actually is what inspired me to go into engineering, as originally I wanted to do business.  AP Lit was a breeze for me at least; if your teacher has you do a bunch of practice work with the multiple choice section it should be a cakewalk (I spewed BS for the essays - got an easy 5.)  Can't help you with the AP European History, though; I took Government/Macro Econ (3s on both ><.)  AP Calc was an easy 5 for me, too; I actually thought the exam was fun whereas everyone else I talked to said it was the worse exam of their life.  Haha.  Lastly was AP Stats, which ended up being a fairly easy class since save for the fact that it was all memorization - I ended up with a 4.

One nice advantage of a community college is how well the AP credits transfer, though.  Between those 5 exams (and my 5 on AP US History my junior year) I was able to get 27 credits worth of classes and saved myself SO much work; I was able to skip directly to Sophomore level classes with over half my lower division GE work done.  The only real big disadvantage of community colleges is that they don't offer a lot of major-specific classes if you choose a major which has a lot of them - this actually ended up affecting me pretty bad.  I'll have to see just how bad when I speak with SDSU's advisors in August, but I'm looking a bunch of things like civil engineering surveying techniques, computer applications, etc that I'll have to take down there which ordinarily students complete in their first two years.

(Double comment, go!)

Ah, good old senior year!  Are you taking any AP courses or the like?  I took 5 my senior year.  Plus, I had no life aside from school and work...was pretty sad. ><

Where are you looking at for colleges right now?  Personally I went with a community college to save on expenses (Monday is my last day my current college, though) and will be transferring to a university this fall.  A lot of people don't generally think of it as an option, but you don't have to do the SATs or anything if you do go that route.  Worth considering at the least. =)

That's cool. =)

Personally Speed Racer didn't interest me that much - I didn't think a live action movie could really capture it plus it was virally hyped and I don't like forced hype. Same thing with Iron Man.  Perhaps I'll check them out later, though. XD

Are you about to start your senior year of high school or first year of college, by the way?
