My name's mackenzie. I like my tea, glitter glue, cooking, and Hannibal Lecter. I'd like to be an either and english major, a chef/pastry artist, or a mortician when I grow up -- well, I guess I kind of am grown up. When I graduate from college. That sounds better. And I'd like to be an author on the side -- my goal is to try and get my book published before I graduate high school. Wow. Four years to get it publi -- wait, Sorry! Got that wrong. I'd like to have it FINISHED before I graduate and published before I graduate from college. There -- that works much better.
If I ate myself, would I disappear completely or be twice as big?
I actually thought about that in Science (Since it's the end of the semester and we were watching Wall-E). So, naturally, I asked Dan.
He didn't say anything for a few moments. "Uhh . . ." Another pause, "Well, you wouldn't disappear, but you wouldn't be twice as big . . ." He didn't say anything for the rest of the movie.
I remembered it again in German, 7th hour. So, I asked Katie
Which reminds me . . .
OH SNAP KATIE'S QUOTE OF THE WEEK IS BACK WITH A VENGEANCE!
KATIE: Science doesn't matter, Mackenzie! If you ate yourself, you wouldn't be there!!!!
She said this after I pointed out the law of conservation of Mass, which says matter cannot be created or destroyed -- so I know I wouldn't disappear. (See, Science does come in handy in everyday life!)
Speaking of Science and the end of the semester . . .
The beginning of the new semester is on Tuesday. Three new teachers (two of which I've never had, one is the same ol' same ol' gym teacher). One new class, one class I've taken twice before because of requirements, and a switch in subjects in a required class. In Science, the switch in subject class, we're now focusing on Physics, and not Chemistry, like we were first semester. I'm kind of excited for Physics, because the teacher I have this semester (Mr. C) is renowned for his fun projects. I know this firsthand. In summer school (Pa-Tooey!) we had to do a hands-on project in addition to the droning hours of computer work. So we built rockets. I still have mine (phantasmagoria is what I dubbed it). I'll have to take a picture . . .
But I am looking forward to a new classroom, a new environment, and a new set of class mates. Uuughhh. The one reason I disliked science was the people. I swear that those kids are out to get my science teacher or something. They called her various rude and crude names and I tell you . . . I just couldn't stand it. Almost daily I'd stay behind and try to apologize for the behavior of my classmates, but she wouldn't have any of it. She said they should apologize for themselves, and that I shouldn't even have to think of apologizing for them. She's very nice, and kind of like myself. I would have done no different in her shoes.
Though I'm not quite excited for Econ(omics) with Mrs. H. I liked Mr. M's class better, mainly because learning was pretty variable. It's like, he has an agenda, but you stray from it every five minutes. It can be rather pleasing or annoying, at which point I crack open a book. Oh well. I'll post those pics later, 'kay?
I've decided to come up with some of the best products I've come across on www.Vat19.com. It's a pretty bomb site, actually. I saw a commercial for it way back and -- first, wrote down the wrong address. Then, I saw the commercial again and wrote down the right address. And now, I go on there when I'm bored and check out some of the "Curiously Awesome" products.
So now, in no particular order, some of the awesomest products.
Hightop Sneaker Socks: Mid-calf Socks in the trademark style of Chuck Taylor
(I wonder what would happen if you put this in a full bathtub? Would it grow like the little ones do in cups of water?)
Insta Snow Powder: Add water to make instant fake snow
Note to readers that actually know me in real life: Remind me to get some of this and SEND IT TO SHELSTEAD (My former science teacher who currently resides in Arizona.) The awesome is displayed here.
PAC-MAN HotHeads Potholder
If I end up going to culinary school, this is what I will demand from someone as a graduation gift from High School. OMG IT'S PAC MAN.
I know, it's a short list -- but maybe you'll find some cool stuff. If you find something you really, really, REALLY think should be on the list -- put it in the comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
