We have plows and trucks taking care of excess snow, in Helsinki it is thrown in to the sea. Last year there was so much of it, the pile of snow still hadn't melted by July. 

 

Today was +4 degrees Celsius. It was nice to not shiver but the roads were in terrible shape.

Homework can be such a headache!  It took me well over an hour to do my accounting homework and doing math still gives me headaches.

 

With so much rain we received last night, we had several roads flooded, no schools were opened today because of it, and at a local university, the lower level parking lots were flooded with some cars trapped on the lots.  I feel terrible for those students who cars are now total losses.  Counting my blessing, that's for sure!

 

Don't get me wrong, snow on the mountains, trees, and such are extremely beautiful to look at, but shoveling, driving in it, and being stuck on the highway because tractor-trailers think they can drive in snow drives me absolutely bonker.  It's even worse when I see sport cars (typically rear-wheel driven) trying to get up hill, and their tires are spinning madly on the pavements.

I just felt like posting here.  
But my xbox controller keeps on disconnecting and my xbox won't connect to the internet, either.

Now I have to sit here and play on my laptop instead!  How outrageous.  It's not as if certain people wouldn't die for either of those or anything, right?

Dangit.

 

 

Anyways, a real rant - my little sisters are very, very loud, and I am very, very tired.

And no matter how tired I am, I can't sleep right - I've tried Melatonin and ZzzQuil, done more exercise to try to wear myself out - nothing works.  I haven't had a full night of sleep for over a week now.  Also, the right-click button on my laptop is breaking - and it's in better condition than my left click one.  And my dad walked out without closing the door. 


So, yeah.  Just tired and stuff isn't working.  Now, before you tell me all about how that means I am self-absorbed and self-pitying and whatever else, go back and read it in a happier tone.

Xbox controller - mine does that when the batteries need replacing.  I use rechargeable batteries & cycle between two sets.

 

Xbox internet:  If using a cable - replace it.  I bought a brand new (dud) one & could not figure out why I couldn't connect.  A new $4 cable fixed the problem.

Okay.  Thanks for the suggestion.  

I'm not quite sure what the problem is with the internet thing, but I'll get a cable if need be...  It stopped working after I moved it to another room.

Coffee doesn't work on me...

I try to stay awake by drinking some, but I only get jittery for about a half hour. Even within that half hour, I can fall asleep without a problem. For a little while, it helped, but I think that was more a result of the placebo effect. Now that I don't actually think it helps, it stopped working for me :/

NMD, that must be tough for a young person. We've come back after 30 odd years away & while a lot of our old school buddies still live here, nobody is really interested in catching up & those who are, work when we have time off. Hope your situation changes soon :D

NMD! My fellow homeschooler! It's always nice to find others. Another formerly homeschooled friend of mine just moved to CO. He really likes to ski. Maybe you should try that. 

 

Rant: Trying to study for an organic chemistry exam with a headache isn't really that productive...It's making the headache worse, and the desire to study less and less...

Barbie: Organic chemistry is the study of carbon and carbon containing compounds...exciting stuff  :P  I don't think we have paracetamol in the US, unless it goes by a different name here...

Edit: paracetamol = acetaminophen. Now I can agree that it would be a good idea. Don't want to be taking anything trippy  :evillaugh:

 

EER: Very funny! But to be truthful, that's only true in a few cases...get a whiff of some hexane and you'll agree...

 

Helen: I enjoyed taking it last semester and managed to get an A. However, this semester I have the toughest O-chem professor at my university (it was unavoidable...), so we'll see how it goes. There's a university-wide legend going around that he once gave out McDonald's applications with low-scoring tests smiley-shocked011.gif . I can neither confirm nor deny the veracity of this horrifying tale...

Homeschooling isn't what put me ahead of everyone else...homeschooling with my Asian mom did.

Trust me, it ain't pretty, but it gets the job done.

 

Hey! Another homeschooler! I'm feeling less wierd by the day! Plus, you're comment deserves an upvote. *upvotes*

 

Helen: Thank you. I sure hope so.

My little sister is crying about the talk of my dog's life approaching its end, and now I'm slightly saddened again too...

I'm still kind of shocked - my dog was fine a week ago, and now she can't even use her back legs.  I don't know what happened.
