Learning Something New

Well, God definitely helped me up this morning! I got up at 6:00 [which is early for me], read my Proverbs and did a couple things, got ready, and then did school from 8-12. I actually learned in school today! Not that I never do, because I usually do. But I was really alert and awake. Usually I'm off day-dreaming, and I did a couple times today, but overall it was great.
In Biology I learned about osmosis and about the cell being either isotonic, hypertonic, or hypotonic. Yeah, I know, I don't love all these terms either.
In English we're going over Edgar Allan Poe's story, "The Cask of Amontillado", so we were reviewing that. Weeiiirdd story.
In World Cultures we're learning about Europe [yay]! Today we were learning about Ancient Greece and the Romans.
In Algebra we were reviewing the FOIL method and then we learned about this square method thing... I understand it, but I forget what the method is called. Haha I can't remember ALL the terms!
In Spanish we took a quiz with someone else, so that was great. I was with Ben, and he's really good at Spanish, so that went well. We got all of the points! We also learned about irregular verbs in the preterite tense [like dar, ser, ir, and ver].

I still haven't gotten caught up in my extra classes I took this year. Maybe I'll be able to over Thanksgiving Break, but I doubt it.

Well I took my Algebra quiz already, so I don't have much more homework to do this weekend. I am so glad. I am so glad it's Friday!

"Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts."
-Psalm 139:23
