    First, my Training Day DVD came in the mail. I love this movie.
    Second, my AP scores came. [​IMG] I took AP Calculus AB and I didn't try very hard, I got B's through the class. I didn't understand alot of the stuff (or so I thought) and didn't study for the AP exam. I thought it was extremely hard and I expected a 1 or a 2. Turns out, I got a 4! Looks like I won't have to worry about calculus ever again. Go me [​IMG]

    Congrats, man. The weighting of the college credit I got for the AP calc test was the only thing that kept me from academic probation (and possibly getting kicked out) my freshman year.

    I got,
    The Last Castle
    The Big Blue
    Tron
    The Saint
    Alien3
    from Columbia house the other day. It's like Christmas all year long when little packages show up like this.
    Congrats on the score Mark. I squeezed out out a C in first level Calculus. Just enough to get me thru and never have to return. Of course that was many moons ago. I hated all kinds of math except Trig. I could do that stuff all day long.
    Peace Out~[​IMG]

    I got the DVD before the movie is completed. It's the Space Balls syndrome[​IMG] I'll just pass that one off as a brain-fart.
    Peace Out~[​IMG]

    I'm absolutely dreading taking AP US this coming school year. From what I hear, it's one of the hardest courses my school offers. How bad is it really?[​IMG]

    Must've been AP day then because I got my score in the mail for AP European History ([​IMG] snore!). I got a 4. I was seriously expecting a 2 due to the fact that I skipped about 20 MC questions, and two of my essays were pretty devoid of actual content except for a few trivial things that I seemed to have pulled from nowhere (The Maastricht Treaty? Lech Walesa? But I used the stuff and I guess it worked). My DBQ wasn't too shabby, though.
    I've figured out that I really don't like history. Ack, I'll be taking Calc AB next year. Hopefully, it won't be so bad. I happen to really like math.

    I had the damndest time getting my college to get my AP scores (or course this was ten years ago). They kept 'losing' the scores AP would sent them. Back then they would only send something like three transcripts free before you had to pay and I burned all three getting my college to take them!

    Crappy community colleges (my older brothers did not graduate on schedule so my parents requested I go to community college first since they were shouldering the cost of three kids in college).

    Where I went to school we had to take 4 semesters of calc... calc 1, 2, 3, and 4 (obviously [​IMG]). Calc 1 was equivalent to the AB exam, calc 2 was equivalent to the BC exam, and there was no way to AP out of calc 3 & 4 (multivariable calc & differential equations). It was an engineering school, but still... don't most colleges require that you know how to integrate?

    Integration was covered in my class quite thoroughly and there were integration questions on the AB exam too.
    Luckily I'm not going into engineering so multivariable calc and differential equations are a non-issues for me [​IMG]

    This week, I got a couple of cool things in the mail. One, a copy of the paperwork cover letter from the school of education I've been attending saying that I've completed all of my requirements for a teaching license in Virginia. the other was my CLEP score for History of the US I, which I needed for content for my license (4-8th grade/Language Arts and Social Studies.)

    Even those of us in our 40's still get excited about grades...

    I got something weird in the mail last week. It was a hand addressed envelope from a hotel in Louisville. As I walked up my steps, I looked at it and said to myself, why the f*** am I getting something from a hotel in Louisville ??? When I open it up, inside is a postcard from a friend of mine that she sent when she and her husband were moving from Boston to Los Angeles. The date on it ? January 8, 1998 !!! There was a letter of apology as well from the front desk manager. Apparently she put it in one of those slots at the front desk and it must have literally fallen between the cracks. Bizarre.

    I just recently moved into a new apartment, so I occasionally get mail for the previous occupant.
    The other day I got one from a Ministry that had the following written/printed on the front of the envelope:
    "God told me to send this to you"
    How come God didn't tell them he'd moved? [​IMG]
