wooot!!! [31 Mar 2005|02:44pm]
First let's begin with
yesterday's-adventures"Collapse )
Now...today has been pretty good. Jeff and I ran through "Love of My Life" again and fixed some mistakes in pitch I was making in the middle of the verses, so that was cool. Those low notes...I tell ya, they're a bitch sometimes, but...oooh I love singing!!!
We then ran through "Sounds of Silence" and experemented with some keys, He now does it in capo seven, for those...who absolutely must know. LOL Six was a little lo. I thought seven would be too hi, but it actually works, so we're good to go there.
On the way to the rehearsal he said that he would help me with some of my chemestry homework after finding out how much work it was for me to go through the tapes to find the answers. He is going to find some students to e-mail me the questions so that when I'm reading the chapters I can just write the answers as I go. i also told him how much of a help he was being and explained to him how grateful it was to find someone who thought of me as a singer first and a blind person second. He told me that he never saw me as a blind person, but as a person who wanted to do something to help, then as someone who was blind. He says he appreciates the help I'm giving because he feels strongly about this. So needless to say I'm feeling rather good right now. It's refreshing to know that there are still people out there willing to look past the blindness and also to do everything in their power to help me work around things that really aren't my fault.
I also spoke to the teacher about the questions and why I wasn't getting them done. Adaptive services is definitely leaving a lot to be desired this semester, that's for damn sure, and as poetprodigy7 said, we, won't, go, there!
I had my reader skip two chapters due to the fact that I need 7, 8, and 9 for this next test. I should probably make sure she does them after these chapters. However, this was one of those classes where the book wasn't followed in any order, so that didn't help any either. However, when I told him about the situation, which was that I had no idea what to do for a lot of the chapters, he eased my mind by saying just as long as I had them in by the end of the semester, it was OK....whew! I'm feeling better now. I don't know what's going to happen in tonight's math class as I haven't looked at the files yet, A, and B since I didn't have tutoring yesterday due to the fact that I was working like hell on this paper, I didn't get a preview. I swear to you halimede I haven't forgotten you....really I havent. This weekend is going to mainly be chemestry...but we'll see if I can't get at least something to you...maybe?
Anyway, now that I've written a novel...or so, I suppose I'll let you all go on about your regularly scheduled lives. Hugs to all who need them...hmm, I thought about mentioning names, but I suppose I won't. Just for those who need them, and anyone who needs to talk my details are in my bio. Have a wonderful rest of the day or evening wherever you may be.

I passed!! [31 Mar 2005|10:12pm]
[ mood | angsty ]

Hello all,

I got a 70% on the math test...wooooot!!!!!

Now however, he is going to be the one giving me the test because he feels like the people giving me the test are doing a lot of the work for me...and he is going to have Kya give him a detailed report of everything we do...talk about scaring the shit out of me, but oh well. Now I'm going to feel like every tutoring session is a test on what I'm doing and the only place I'll feel really comfortable in is class. I know that's not his intention, but right now I'm just extremely nervoust and angsty.He says no more BS ing my way through the tests. He wants me to do a lot of the work on the PAC Mate or BLite, which ever i feel more comfortable with and write it all out. So...that's what I was doing before, just the people there were helping me keep the numbers strate since there was more than one equasion to look at and I had a hard time keeping them all straight, that would even happen with the Braille Lite or the PAC Mate since there's only a single bar and the Braille writer is so cumbersome that it hasn't left my room since it came here. He says I'm going to be a lot more accountable for what I do for the next three weeks, and I will have to prove to him that I deserve a C in the course...which means I'm still in. I just hope I'm up to this. Bust my butt for math....since final is comprehensive. Thank the gods it's not for three more weeks. But this next test is in two...two! Wish me luck all, this is going to be rough.

Hmm...too bad I'm not a Rowan...I love those trees!! [31 Mar 2005|10:39pm]

You Are A Lime Tree

You are intelligent, hard working, and innately successful.

You try to change what you can in life - and you accept what you can't change.

Tough on the outside, you are actually soft and relenting.

Jealous at times, you are extremely loyal and giving to those you love.

You have many talents, but you don't have enough time to use them.

I suppose it sort of fits me though...to some extent. I found this rather amusing, though.
