My humanities teacher never fails to either amuse me or deliver insight. Yesterday, he did the latter. What insight did he impart upon that stupid head of mine? He told me (and my classmates) to mess up our lives. XD Let me explain. He says that the majority of youngin's these days always have some kind of set plan. They plan where they're going to go to college/university, when they will graduate, when they will marry, when they will buy and house, when they will buy a car, etc. They will follow this predetermined path and never dare to deviate from it. Any of you people choose your classes? Did you ever see a class description and think that the class was interesting, but chose not to take it because it didn't fulfill that IGETC requirement? That's the exact example he cited. He told us to live life a little and not to have such a strict plan for our lives. This would, of course, mean not completing college "on time," but he says that it is ultimately a good thing. Personally, I think he's right. I would definately love to take time and do what I want to do with my schooling, but I'm kind of left without a choice. My dad has already told me to graduate in four years. It's the money. Oh well... I guess my life's still on course....

I took a chemistry placement test yesterday. At my college, you have to prove a brief understanding of a subject before being allowed to take the course. In this case, this test evaluated my competency in high school chemistry. Aw man that sucked. -_- You know how long it's been since I last studied chem? Three years. Yes, three years. How the hell am I supposed to remember a suitable amount? I just hope I passed the test. I'm feeling like it can go either way. If I don't pass, there'll always be another test. I can just keep taking them until I do pass. ^_^

Today, I went to my new dentist. Believe it or not, I've been going to a children's dentist/orthodontist for the entirety of my life up until this point. Considering how I'm on the verge of nineteen-year-oldness, I'm finally changing dentists. My mom, being the Viet person she is, decided that my dentist would also be Vietnamese. If you don't know, Viet people generally like associating with fellow Viet people when it comes to business, insurance, etc. I don't really have a problem with it; I just thought it was something kind of funny because it's so predictable. ^_^; Anyway, I went for a check up. How did I do? Good bill of... teethness...? ^_^; No problems. Apparently I have a preliminary cavity between my teeth in the upper left mouth portion, but it should be fine as long as I brush well, so no worries. With that out of they way, they went on to suggest that I bleech my teeth. Now I don't know about most people, but while I'm not exactly opposing it, I don't particuarily like the idea. I've always kind of thought that my teeth were fine the way they are. I've had numerous compliments from my dentist, the wisdom teeth doctor guy (the specific title escapes me), and this new doctor about how great they are (straight, clean, with no apparent problems, etc.) and I kind of think that that is sufficient. Do I really need to have white teeth? It might be nice, but I think it's kind of unnecessary. *shrugs* Oh, and while I was at the dentist's they were playing Mr. Bean. It was the Christmas episode. Mr. Bean is pimp. I'm going to enjoy going to this place. XD

Picked up two games in the last two days. ^_^; Yesterday I got Guilty Gear XX. Sweet! I was dying to play the game. I'm kinda lacking an arcade machine in any convenient location near me, so I was suffering for the last few months. But now I have it and I'm happy! XD I'm just missing an arcade stick. Oh man, I suck on the Dual Shock 2. -_- I lack the thumb dexterity to do all the complicated things I want to do. Must track down Namco arcade stick.... *shakes fist* The other game I got was the Sakura Taisen remake for PS2, limited edition. XD That arrived via UPS today. I'm so looking forward to getting into that sometime, but right now I'm absorbed in Xenosaga, with GGXX off to the side, so yeah....

your teacher is very right. Strangly, that is what I've been thinking too. o_o; but then again, I have a more sadistic look towards it. XD;

lol.. xD;; Tsu-kun talks about his teeth. teehee ^^ Glad to know they're in great shape?

And your teacher... Is pretty right. I never really liked following schedules. Most people end up completing things on time anyways... uh... I think.

I really should call more ^^;; Maybe soon! :D
I really think Tsu-kun does a lot of shopping, more than me xD;

*hugs* Miss you~ and... >_x;; *thinks about the E-mail*
