If anything, I definitely agree with the fact that AP courses were nowhere near as difficult as their college counterparts. As an engineering student, taking math and physics courses in high school was a pushover compared to taking them in college. Not only are they more difficult, but they cover much more material than they do in high school.
The entire album is really good! Thanks for sharing, you guys are really talented and I'll definitely be following your band from now on!
I'm looking forward to meeting new people, continuing my relationships with my current friends, learning new things, and having adventures.
For the past year, whenever someone has asked me "what's new?" I gave the answer "nothing". Over and over again. 2012 was a year of stagnation for me. 2013 holds the promise of change and adventure, and I'm looking forward to broadening my horizons and becoming a better person.
In no particular order
Angela's Ashes- its a story of an Irish immigrant family seen through the eyes of their oldest son. It's ridiculously sad, but at the same time the writing makes me crack up through my tears. Absolutely one of the best books I've ever read.
East of Eden- definitely my favorite Steinbeck book. I loved Steinbeck growing up, and I think that this was definitely his masterpiece.
The Old Man and the Sea- when I first read this book as a kid I thought, "well this is boring". Several years later, when I reread it for a paper I was writing, I understood Hemingway much more, his style was fantastic and I fell in love with the book immediately.
The Harry Potter Series- simply because I grew up with the books, and it's had such a large impact on my generation. Rowling is the reason I loved reading as a teenager and the reason I love all of these other books. I absolutely love the story and reread the series once every few years.
I can't think of a fifth one right now, I'll come back and edit this post when I figure one out
Ahh... Hadn't seen that chart above. Thank you!
This always gets me off my lazy ass.
Just a warning about this kind of mindset: I often end up in a sort of contentment with my lifestyle, regardless of how unhealthy it is. A certain amount of discontent is good for motivation and building up that motivation for an unpleasant activity (such as studying) is difficult when you're happy regardless of the fruit of your labor.
I don't think it's necessarily anything I do, but I tend to be happy regardless of what's happening, simply because the alternative sucks. It's not really a forced happiness, but it is chosen, and after a while it becomes completely natural to just be happy for no goddamn reason other than that being happy makes me happy.
I've heard that drowning is the most painful way to go. I don't have a source or anything, this is just what I've heard.
I would want to go either very peacefully and quietly or in a blaze of glory. Dunno which. All I know is that I want people to remember me after I die. I don't want to live a wasted life.
