Going Sky High

Time for another post!

First of all, a few days ago I got a plane ticket to go to Vegas and go skydiving with my nephew. For his 18th birthday he wanted to go skydiving and thats what he got. So, it wouldn’t be any fun if you didn’t have anyone to go with right? Well….. I guess it would still be fun.. But not the point. Me and him are going to be leaving the night of the 21st and we are getting back the night of the 24th. Hopefully nothing will go wrong!

Then today I had to wake up at 6:30 and go to the school that my SAT test was scheduled for which was like 20 miles (32km) away. So I got there, took the test, 5 hours later I was done. I really hope I did well. But I will know in two weeks, I was told.

Right after the test I realized that the DOL is open on saturdays so I was like “Why not?” so we went there and I waited for almost an hour, got up there and I scheduled my drivers test to get my license which was $20 and I think I renewed my permit which was another $20. My test is now set for the the 6th of December then hopefully comes the license.

Life goes on

Well I guess I’ll talk about whats going on with me.

A week or so ago I installed the newest version of Songbird which since the last time I used it has very much improved. So because I always hated having to go into windows and into iTunes to manage my iPod, I transfered my entire music library to my Linux and loaded it all into Songbird. Now no more windows to manage the iPod.
I also managed to edit a file and mess it up on my computer so when I restarted, Arch would not boot. And this is where I learned how to boot into the CD and mount my root Linux partition and revert the messed up file. Without the mistakes how will we ever learn new things 😛 .

Right now I’m ‘winning’ at my senior project with having 37 out of my required 40 community service hours done with. In the end of everyhting I should have far over my required hours. In the Web design class that im teaching we are just getting into CSS and to me its fun since I know all this stuff well enough to teach an entire class.

About three days every week I have to stay after school for NHS, ASB, and Mentoring. Hopefully all this is going to be worth it when I’m applying for a college. And I have registared for the SAT that will be in November. I really need to study.

The last thing I got is that tomorrow morning I have to go the the college and take the ASSET test which if I pass I will be able to get 5 collage credits for my english class. If I dont pass this I am going to be really dissapointed. So hopefully I’m going to do well.
