    You guys are complaining about school, but for me looking back, college was probably the funnest portion of my life. Parties, girls, sports, girls, happy hours, girls, more sports, and even lots of fun chicas. Oh yeah, i seem to remember going to class and studying some too. That happens when you do engineering.

    August 22.

    I want to go back to school though..this has been a pretty boring summer besides playing tennis. When school starts I'll have more things to do as well as playing tennis for the school.

    Man, I despise school. In my grade, there are a bunch of morons who spend countless hours gossiping about people they know and spreading rumours. So annoying... And the girls in my grade say: "like", "...yeah...", and "like totally" waaaayy too often. To top it off, most of the "cool" kids in my school think tennis is a girly sport. Oh well, perhaps things will change in 8th grade.

    No, things won't ever change.
    Cool kids think you're girly. Ergo, you're not popular.
    Are some of those rumours about you?
    But the girls sound like they're hot or something :mrgreen:

    (Yes, I love to open old wounds :mrgreen: )

    Antelope Valley College in Lancaster - Weather and Climate. That's all. Just a part-time gig. Pays for my camera equipment. I give an easy A, but the kids have to do the work. Give a weekly quiz of 10-questions with an additional 10 that I tell them will appear on the mid-terms and/or the final. Still get a lot of slackards.

    Do you talk about global warming? Natural phenomenon, civilization induced, or combo?

    Nope, I'm not popular. I'm not a total loner either though. It's just something about the way I communicate with people. The way I talk is miles away from what is "cool" or "funny". None of the rumours were about me except one. ;). Oh well, I still have my ping pong and tennis buddies. :)
    Oh, and some of the girls do look nice, but there are enough of those gossiping mobs of screaming girls who can't survive a minute of running to annoy you. Thank goodness at least 15% of the girls in the grade are okay.

    Nobody's knows, but for sure, there is a huge anthropogenic push to it if just part of a natural cycle. Difficult times a comin'.

    Which is my birthday! :D

    But school starts for me August 16. It's gonna be odd since the "cool kids" similar to jjk707's description are fond of me now (because of tennis and the fact that I'm european {spanish}]

    Sept. 18th, but that's only b/c the school I teach @ is undergoing construction & the district is hoping for completion by then. (Yeah right). I'm supposed to start coaching the girls tennis team for our 1st practice on August 15th, but b/c of some personal things, I told the AD that the assistant would have to lead the team until school starts.

    I think the first day of classes is August 28th, but I need to move into a house I'm sharing with some friends sometime before that. This summer has moved way too fast, but when I get back to school I start playing team tennis competitively again, which is good.

    Well happy birthday for then! I'm sure you will enjoy the day more than me lol.

    Most of the kids at my school get on with each other, it's a small school with 1,000 pupils so most people know each other. I suppose I get on better with the popular kids but I also get on with the "emo's" and the like, I can talk to anyone.

    man, my school has about 500 or 490 kids, not exactly big. Than again, we are the third biggest school in the county which is kind of sad if you think about it.

    Wow thats small! What kind of a school is that?

    I don't know how the American system works, is it the last school that you will go to?

    Or do you have to move up to another?

    It's the public high school that I go to :D , yup, all the freshman, sophmores, juniors and seniors combined are only 490 or 500. If you think that is small, my middle school only had 350 people. My elementary school (grades 3-5) has about 290-300 kids and the new primary school which was built a couple years ago has about 290 kids as well.

    I'd have to say that I go back around september 12th I think, and at my school nobody really cares about tennis or any other sport you play, since our team is horrible and since the school is so small(500) EVERYONE plays a sport
