*we put the "mmm" in communism


This is the personal blog of Tim. Here, Tim writes on anything he has enough inspiration to finish a post on. That usually ends up being matters of science, pop culture, technology, religion, and philosophy.

This blog is around nine years old, which is over a third of Tim's current age. Back in 2003, it was called "Of Tim: Tim's life - or lack thereof", and it was as bad as you might expect the blog of a freshman in high school to be. Tim hopes that his writing is a little better, these days.

Tim welcomes any input that you, the dear reader, might have. Comments are very much appreciated, especially if you have a dissenting opinion. If you'd like to learn more about Tim, you might want to see his facebook or google+.

Also: Tim is a very avid consumer of various sorts of music. You may be interested in his playlists!

In a manner of 6 hours, the entire household is empty, oh so empty. I have that standard post-fun syndrome, which I get after any extended period of time which I enjoyed thoroughly. It didn't help when shortly after they'd all left that Mom came down to inform me of a horrid letter upon my 5-week report, commonly associated wiith "failing" or "flunking". I knew I hadn't been doing well in Math, but she refused to let us see our grades until the reports had been sent out. It's the first time I've had an F on any report (this isn't a report card, mind you, just a 5-week report). The thing that baffles me is that it's not that I haven't been focused on school. It's not that I haven't been doing my work (I have a 100% homework average in there). It's her. It's her tests. So many people fail them, so very many, I don't understand this woman. Was she never in high school? Is she just stupid? I honestly don't know. All my other grades were left intact (excepting German, surpise, surprise).

The thing that really gets me is that now, because of her inefficient and awful methods of teaching, I have to spend extra time and effort to try and raise this grade. My personal belief on school is that no time outside of 8:00 to 2:37 should be forcefully spent in there. Everything I need to get done should get done inside that block of time, if the teachers are doing things right. The real clincher for me is this: I know if I were homeschooled right now, I'd be getting twice the education, and spending half the time working on it. It's times like this that I remember why I chose to be homeschooled before. Oh, curse these public schools. Curse them.

That being said, I don't look forward to Monday much.
