AP Physics

Good morning, this What DeHelizat reporting live at the last AP Physics class Mods 6 - 9. AP Physics, there's nothing like stress in the morning crunching equations and topics all in one mesh inside the brain of a student. All the pressure is gone now, and the grades that described the work done (or not done). Hey, What just cried a cheery "Whoohoo" as he has been surprised with a "B". The season of learning has ended, and now we shall rest before What gets a cookie. As for LOL, he ain't gettin' much rest in the seat of a driver ed car in the summer.

OH, LOL, who knows, I might hang around to distract you!!!!

For every Netbabbler forum, including the help forum they host themselves, adding a message makes the forum report dat it has none. Both the true and backup forums have thus "disappeared." Without the aid of the help forum, I haven't a clue as to why this is or wha they're doing to fix it, but I'm certain they're working on it.

Yes... I'm sure that they are working really hard at trying to satisfy all their customers... in more than one way, might I add. However, according to influences from a certain CS course, they are not thinking about their problem and are spending way too much time fiddling with the coding and such... so under new beliefs, they should all get some applications to McDonald's which can be attained from my professor.

And of course, you just GOTTA love DPM! Isn't he ADORABLE!?!?! (you should see the look on his face when I say that! =) ) Anyway, I'm sorry I took so long, but now I'm here signing it and you know what they say, better late than never right? I THOUGHT about signing it in Japanese but I decided not to for a few reasons.
1) I can't type in Japanese characters
2) No one could understand a single blasted thing
3) This message would be a lot shorter.
So I just decided to do it in plain old English...=) That was probably for the best. Besides, what if some Japanese people visited this page!?! They would see my writing and probably DIE at the horrible grammar! And since I'm not particularly fond of scaring of users and things, I thought it would be for the best. Hey, at least I'm not putt

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I've NEVER gotten an award like this before!

That would be SO cool! I really want an award on my page! Sadly, I have yet to receive one. I don't understand why. :( How do you get those awards anyway? Do you just wait until some passerby who happens to give away awards for different things or for a certain thing comes and visits your page and likes it so much that he or she decides to give you an award for the page? Or do you have to actually sign up for awards? I hope you don't have to sign up for awards because I would feel really really bad if I did. I mean, why sign up for an award yourself?

oh! (part 2)

y page. I mean, basically signing up for an award is asking for an award and aren't awards supposed to be given without asking? I mean, I didn't ask for this long entry award, but I got it! And I must say, it feels much better being given an award when I'm not expecting one than just asking an award and then getting one because I asked. It just doesn't feel right I guess. I supposed some people don't have a problem with asking for awards. It seems to be a very pompous thing to do though...I mean, if someone asks for an award they think that they are good enough to get an award. I'm not saying that they AREN'T good enough to get an award, I'm just saying that when they ask for an award, they aren't showing a great deal of humilty. I rather think humility is a good quality to have, even though I don't have it in loads myself. I try to be humble, even though I don't always succeed. At least I try.

try anything. Like, some people don't ever try to accomplish their dream and do what they really want with their life. I know a few people like that. It kind of scares me because I see how bitter these people are because they didn't get around to doing what they really wanted and now they're stuck in jobs that they don't like so they get bitter and take it out on the people they live with and stuff like that. I mean, if something happens because you don't try, you shouldn't take it on others, because it's not their fault so don't treat them like it is, right? I mean, that's just makes for bad relations within a relationship. I know that if you want to have a good relationship you have to get along and if you're constantly taking things out on someone else because of something that isn't their fault, you aren't going to get along with them, and eventually, it's going to really hurt the relationship you have with that person.

. Sometimes, people start making their lives over late in life. I've heard about several people doing complete changes after years in one field or career. Sometimes they're even better at their new career than they were at their old one. Sometimes they can even get awards in their new career. Usually they don't ask for these awards; they just get them because people feel they did a really good job and deserved them. I wonder what would happen if people gave awards to people who were really bitter and stuff. Would that help their attitudes towards what they have made of their lives or help them gain the initiative to do what they really want to do? Maybe we should just have special days or something for them. Everyone should have a special day. Everyone should be made to feel special at least once a year because everyone IS special. Some people don't seem to realize this and that makes me sad. I like making people feel special and making them happy. Mayb

Well, I guess you could say I'm long winded. I can hold my breath a long time. I held it for just a little under two minutes one time. This was while I was swimming one summer. I had a friend time me. I was always the one who would win the "who can hold his/her breath the longest" contests. This ability, of course, helps immensely in singing, especially when you're sustaining long notes. I know that this comes useful when singing opera. Sometimes you will find long lines of notes where you just go up and down the scale, maybe just on one syllable. Personally, I rather like opera. I have sung a few things. My senior year in highschool I learned "Voi Che Sapete" from "The Marriage of Figaro". It was the first aria (a song taken from an opera) that I ever learned. This of course meant that I had to learn how to pronounce the Italian, the language in which the song was written. I prefer to sing Italian opera though. Italian is very easy to pronouce, really. F

Well... (part 2)

rench is so hard to pronounce and it's hard to get the correct accent. I found this out when I started to learn "L'amor" from "Carmen". French is a very beautiful language, but very hard to sing when the person who is singing has never had any lessons in French what-so-ever. German isn't quite as difficult, but I don't particularly care to sing in German. I much rather speak these languages than sing them. It's amazing what the difference between singing in a certain language and speaking in that language is. Spanish is another language I don't mind singing in. I, however, took a year of Spanish after I had taken three years of Japanese. Now this is one language that came quite naturally to me. That and the fact that the previous summer I had just visited a Spanish speaking country (I won't say which, you'll have to ask) so I supposed I was in the mode to learn Spanish. The class was so easy for me. I think the lowest grade I made was a 96. I pretty

Well... (part 3)

much got a 98 for a term grade each term. Languages tend to come easily to me. It's one of my few talents. I seem to be able to pick up the way to speak them, the accents, quite easily as well. This is good since I've taken Japanese for the last 6 years. Japanese is very easy to sing because it's very straight forward. I actually have a cd with a collection of old traditional Japanese music. There are a couple of merely instrumentals, one starring the koto and another that has an ensemble of different instruments including the koto, shakuhachi (a type of flute) and some chimes. This song is the "Edo lullabye" and is very beautiful. It's one of my favourites. Most of the other music on this cd is vocal music. The style is very very old and most Japanese people don't listen to this style of music anymore. The words and phrases that they use in this music is very old Japanese and sometimes you run across things in this cd that aren't really used in the

We all have our likes and dislikes and we all like different things. I try not to make fun of what other people like so they should make fun of what I like! Anyway, the people who sing the music also have to hold notes out for a very long time. Sometimes I wonder how some people can hold things out that long. It just amazes me how much breath control they have! Of course, if you want to REALLY be amazed at how much breath control people have, listen to some Gregorian chant. Now THERE'S music that you have to hold for a long time. I mean, they can spend 10 minutes on ONE syllable going up and down the scale sometimes. Of course, in that time there wasn't really a scale per se, more just modes or something to that effect. I do believe that the Medieval Dorian mode was the Greek Phrygian mode an

I have a decent amount of breath control, but not like a person who wants to sing opera and Broadway should. It's certainly something I need to work on. So, yes, in a way, I'm long winded, but not quite up to the standards that I should be. I'm working on it, though and I hope to get better soon! Anyway, it's almost time to go to work. Ciao!

d the Medieval Phrygian mode was the Greek Dorian mode. Or something like that. I should look that up again. Anyway, Gregorian chants can be quite neat to listen to, if you get a nice recording. I have run across a few that I'm not particularly fond of, but hey, we can't all like everything. Anyway, as I was saying, you can listen to these chants and marvel at the wonderful breath control that they have. It is certainly something to aspire towards. I of course, aspire towards singing like Kathleen Battle. She's a WONDERFUL opera singer with one of the most beautiful voices. Her notes are SO clear when she goes really high and she has AWESOME breath control. I really admire her for her voice. I can't say that I admire her personality too much because...well...because fame and success have gotten to her head, and she tends to be a bit...um...well, I guess the phrase is "Stuck up". I mean, the Metropolitan Opera FIRED her because of attitude. It's rea

I've sent him to the site and I think he's read most of the stories. I'll have to work on him a little more. ;) He's really into fish ponds though. When I went to visit him in August (He lives in Texas, I live in Georgia), I helped him build an outdoor fishpond. It took us four days, but that's only because we were procrastinating horribly. We were having too much fun doing stuff, like watching movies and going out and stuff. But anyway, we finally got all the wood and the lining and everything and built the frame and then put the lining in the frame. We got some fish too but they aren't in the pond yet. He's going to wait til he can get some plants into the pond before putting the fish in.

One of the fish he got was a koi. He's really big on koi, and I don't blame him. They're such beautiful fish! We went to the Houston Zoo while I was there and they had a BIG duck pond that had lots of ducks (gee...maybe that's why it was a duck pond. :) ) and lots of koi! There some koi there that were probably longer than my forearm! When some of the larger ones swam, their backs would stick up out of the water. They had these little dispensers filled with some sort of generic food that you could get for a quarter so we spent a couple of dollars on that, buying food and throwing it to the ducks and fish. They were all so cute going after the food! There weren't any fights or anything either, just lots of fish and ducks swimming as fast as they could to get to the food. Right next to the duck pond was an alligator pond and they had this HUGE alligator there. He must have been OLD. His nose was probably as thick as two of my heads and he was probably arou

Of course, if they just stayed in Kurt's pond, they wouldn't have gotten eaten, unless the gator some how broke out of the Zoo and found it's way to my boyfriend's house. I'll have to get Kurt to read more of those stories and maybe post to the board. Of course, if he sees that I've talked on and on about him here on the guestbook, he'll probably hit me. :} Maybe then he could tell some of his friends and then get them interested and after a while if we all do as Jazmine suggests, we can start a cult or something! Maybe even make a movie! That would be so cool! I've never been in a movie, though I know that Scream 2 was filmed at Agnes Scott, a women's college that's 15 minutes from my house and one where I was accepted when I was applying to schools.

Although, I hope they don't make a third one because even though Scream 2 was pretty good, I don't see how Scream 3 could ever have a plot or be any good. But I would like to have a chance to be in a movie or something. I think it would be neat to have one of those overnight successes that come about every once in a blue moon! If not on the screen, then on the stage! That would be so awesome! I could be the next Julie Andrews! Don't you just love broadway? I do, though I've never seen anything live on stage. The only things that I've seen as far as broadway and opera have been on the tele. I want to see something live one day...I remember the first broadway show that I ever saw was "Showboat".

I really want to see the show and hear the music.

Unfortunately, my highschool had a lot of students who took music just to get what they thought would be an easy "A". Unfortunately, if they didn't try, they didn't get good grades. Needless to say, a lot of them didn't get good grades. It's really too bad because we had a lot of good singers in that group. Those that did care (like me) were the ones who always did the cool stuff like solo/ensemble and all-state chorus. I remember going to all-state. That was a lot of fun! I went during my senior year and I was the only one from my highschool to go that year. I was put in the women's chorus. It was a lot of fun and I got to keep the music from it! I always love getting new music. Unfortunately, sheet music can be expensive. As so can tapes and cds. Still, I scrap and save and every now and then I grab some sheet music and gets some cds.

to get tapes anymore. They just don't do the trick, ya' know? It was really nice of them to let us keep the music because that way my church can possibly do some of the music some day. That is, if I ever remember to propose the music to them. That's the problem, I can never remember. Maybe I'll get around to it some day and then I'll be remembering how I performed that with the choir at all-state. I also have some music that my choir director from my college let me keep. Some more music to propose to much choir at church. Now if I can only remember to do it. Hehehehe. Sometimes we do pieces from shows and stuff in choir. Like last year, we did a piece from the show "Rent". I think it would be cool to actually perform that on stage professionally! Years from now, I'm a professional singer doing all the songs that I did in choir, only this time getting paid to do it! Don't you just LOVE getting paid to do something you LOVE to do!?!

I think when you have something like that, time goes by so fast and you actually enjoy what you're doing and your bloodpressure doesn't skyrocket. That would be a bad thing. My mom has high blood pressure and it tends to get higher when she's at work. Gee...I wonder why. She's on medication right now for it. She's actually on 6 or 7 different medications for arthritis, high blood pressure, allergies and other things. That really bombs, having to be on medication. I know I hate it. I'm SUPPOSED to be on ritalin, but unfortunately I can't afford it. I can afford it when I'm at home because it's only 5 or 10 dollars a perscription, but when I'm away from home it's almost three times that much and since I have 2 different perscriptions of ritalin and the only last a month each,

that's 60 dollars a month, which is a lot more than I can afford. At least medicine is cheap when I go home. Going to the doctor is cheap too. It's only 10 dollars a visit. It's because we're on an HMO. That price is really good because I get sick a lot. Especially with respiratory and throat problems. One time, I had 6 bouts of bronchitis in 6 months. I had it 3 times during the summer and 3 times after the summer but before Christmas. I was miserable and missed a LOT of school. Then there was the time that I had strep throat for 2 months and it wouldn't go away! I got sick all of a sudden the day before my birthday and just went to bed that afternoon like around 6pm. Then I went to the doctor on my birthday. The people at the office gave me a lollipop! She asked me to come back and get tested to make sure the strep throat was gone, but it wasn't! So she put me on a different medication and when I came back to get tested again, I STILL had st

rep throat! Once again, a new medication. Once again, positive. During this time, I felt BAD. I didn't miss 2 months of school, but I felt crappy (I could go to school because I didn't have a fever and wasn't contagious). By this time, the doctor was getting worried and kept changing my medication. After a while, she said that I might just be around someone who was a carrier for strep and just wasn't affected by it. Then she gave me one more perscription and said if that didn't work that she would have my mom and my grandma tested and if they didn't come up positive that she wanted us to take my cat in to get tested! No, y'all can NOT test my cat for me. She's perfectly FINE. Don't even THINK about it. Anyway, she gave me the new perscription. And for the first time in almost 2 months, I wasn't feeling so crappy! Then, the next day, my arms start to glow. And I mean GLOW! Glow RED! And it was spreading all up my arms and I was feeling nauseou

Then I call the doc and she puts me on a perscription I had before that didn't work. Only, the next time I went into the doctor, I came up negative! So the perscription that I had a reaction to DID help!! Well, it helped to weaken the strep throat anyway. I've always had problems with these kinds of sicknesses and I hate that because I sing all the time, whether it be at church when I'm home from school, or in a choir at school and in practise every day. Then I get sick and can't perform and feel crappy and it happens so often! I hope that if I become a professional singer that it won't happen so often. That would be BAD!
