AP Exams and other babble.

I love Barron's.
I don't know what I would do without my AP Calculus Review book--especially with AP Exams coming up in less than two weeks! I don't feel like I'm completely solid in everything I have to know... So I'm practically sleeping with this thing in my arms. Okay. Not really. Because that would be really dorky. But it's the first time in a while since I've been so stressed about an academic thing in a while, maybe it's because of the AP Cal AB sub-grade, or the fact that I don't want to do badly? I'm not really sure.

I went to the AP Review Day at UNC Charlotte yesterday, too! I have mixed feelings about that. One of the teachers didn't really know what he was doing... But the other teacher gave me the best lecture about Euler's method that I've ever had! And she was ADORABLE. I wish MY grandmother taught Calculus in such a cute way.

I just find elderly people really adorable, not in a disrespectful way.
I know that they have a lot of experience, and lots more memories than I have in my short 14 years of life, but I still can't help but find them absolutely cute. Especially ones that are still in love and married. I see it happening, and I can't help but go 'awh!', and wonder if I could be like that one day.

But probably not.
I mean, I AM planning to go skydiving on my 60th birthday!

I have a green pig.

Why are people so obsessed with SillyBandz these days?

And for those of you who don't know what a SillyBand is, it's basically this bracelet, rubber band-ish type of thing that is made in the shape of some kind. For instance, I have a green pig... and a yellow giraffe, pink bumblebee, and blue dolphin among others. (The funny thing is, I haven't spent any of my money on this stuff. I've just received them from friends. I love my friends. :D)

Here's the official website for this addicting new toy:

Teachers loathe it--it supposedly distracts the kids from their teaching.
But kids love it!
Which leads me to wonder... Why do kids like it so much?
