Russian Test, Chapter 7 AND French Things

So I thought I did alright on my Russian test. But then after I turned it in, I looked at some stuff and realized that I messed a whole bunch up. We're going to be getting them back tomorrow, which always makes me nervous. By the way, I got an A on my professions quiz. Yay!

We have a French Project due Thrusday. This project consists of writing a poem or song in French. The good news is that we can write it however we want. Total creativity! YAY! I've been waiting for this forever! The only problem is I haven't had much time to sit down and write. I'm so busy all the time.

Yesterday, Mom and I went to a friend's house. Mom's friend is fluent in French and she's doing a doctral thingy on Medival French Romance stories. Mom helped me make arrangements to go and see her so she could tell me about it. It was very interesting. She also gave me some stuff to read and a couple of books to borrow. I'm looking forward to reading them when I have the chance.(Which is going to be a while)

Had to write an English paper, it's a process analysis essay. SO I wrote about the process of shopping at Wal-Mart quickly. Basically I talked about how it's impossible.

That's about it from here. Thought I'd let you all know that I'm going to be rearranging the side panel on the left so it's more organized and I'll probably move my nifty language links to there. Look for it.

Yeah, Yeah. I know I'm behind. I can't help it though. Sorry to anyone who actually reads this blog (No one)

In all honesty, you're not missing much. Spanish is still the most boring class in the world, sorry but it's the truth. It's too bad because Spanish could be a language that could come in handy.

I've decided to bust mes fesses (See Guide to french Phrases) In Russian class this semester, so far my efforts have been paying off. I've gotten a B and two A's on my last three graded assignments, we've had three total. We took a quiz on Friday about Professions and workplaces I think I did okay but I'm a tad bit nervous about it. It's cool because as we're learning more, we can converse more. This semester the people in my class often have little mini Russian conversations.

In French class, We've been learning about Music and Poetry. My favorite part is of course, the poetry. We wrote a few poems in french but I didn't really care for them so I'm probably going to be trying my hand at free verse whenever I next have time. The cool thing about this unit is we got packets with a bunch of poems by Jacques Prevet. I'm probably going to be posting some so you can all read them.

English has been going downhill since Christmas Break. Mrs. Haynam has turned into a sort of Nazi. Not really sure why, but the whole AP class will tell you it's true. Speaking of English class, I just read A Clockwork Orange (Even though I did kind of have to twist her arm) for it. It's an amazing book. One of the main reasons I read it was actually for the slang, but the story itself was absolutely wonderful! I could hardly put it down. It's definitely a must read for everyone!
