@ Hikaro: You live in Harrisburg? I've been there! Well, the airport anyway. I was flying home from summer camp. Nice sub, by the way.

@CB: Don't have a Facebook, so I don't have that same problem, but I agree, hypocriticism runs rampant in the high school age group.

It's not easy for everyone, and it's total BS. Standardized testing in general is not terrifically effective, and most 'big official' tests tend to be more about playing the game than really testing your skills. The writing section of the ACT, for instance, has instructions implying you can write about their prechosen subjects or something of your own choosing- but you will be graded poorly if you deviate from the options they give you.

Skywalker, no I live about an hour SOUTH of Harrisburg, my fiance lives near Harrisburg, meaning I have an hour and a half drive (she's a bit further north) every time I want to go see her.

Biohazard: Trust me on this, but women, in general never really grow out of the drama stage.....

Shadow Viking: Considering that about 75% of getting a job or anywhere in life is based on how well you can play the game (or even better, game the system) as opposed to what you actually know or how good you are at it, I'd say that the standardized tests are a fairly accurate standard for how well someone will do in the real world.

My girlfriend is about a three hour drive away, through one of the more "scenic" (read:boring) routes in southern Ohio. I feel your pain.

My girl has been anti-drama ever since I've known her. :)

Speaking of which, I just woke up about 20 mins ago and her and my daughter are gone for most of the day doing the PSSA's or whatever the school exams are called now. I get to my computer and found an early B-day present on my desk. New Catwoman Catcycle City Chase with the dark blue Batman I've been wanting. :)

...which is also a problem.

Yep. The real world sucks...

So the weirdest thing happened to me last night. A rustling noise in my room woke me up, and I figured it was mice, but when I looked on my floor there was a friggin squirrel sitting there. I really wish the bottom six inches of my wall were filled in. It must have been the squirrel that lives in my ceiling. It would be easy for it to crawl from the ceiling into my wall and out the bottom.
