Some really cool things

1. My German teacher knows our names! And it only took him like, two classes! We're starter level German, too, so he must have a bunch of 30-person sections, and somehow, he knows our names!!!
2. I got a C for my jersey! The jersey has yet to come, but I've got that C aaaallll ready for it. Also, I can't WAIT for our jerseys to come - we seriously have such a cool logo.
3. My new favourite singer ever, of all time, is this dude named Alexander Rybak. He's a violinist and sings, and his songs are amazing. So I've been listening to all that on loop. Here are the two I bought on itunes:
4. It's Thanksgiving this weekend!! Still feels weird to have it in October, but whatevs. Monday's a holiday!
5. My hockey team got a registration slot for next semester! I actually forgot to log on at the actual time, and there was ONLY ONE SPOT LEFT, and we GOT IT!! I am thrilled to bits about this. So much.
6. Went to the Law Insider event the pre-law club hosted. It was cool, if terrifying. Law schools are very difficult to get into in Canada - a lot of them had 2,000+ applicants, and accepted UNDER 200 OF THEM. It's stressful.
7. I realized that being Captain of a hockey team will be really cool on an application and stuff - life skills! I didn't even realize that!
8. Turns out I'm a total genius in my Scientific Reasoning class. No, seriously! We had a test, and the formula we usually use looks like this:
P(H) P(E|H)
P(H) P(E|H) + P(~H) P(E|~H)

And in the test, it was totally different, and looked like this:

P(A) P(RG|A)
P(A) P(RG|A) + P(B) P(RG|B) + P(C) P(RG|B)

totally different! It was one problem, and it's about if you have 3 cups filled with different amounts of green and red marbles, and you choose two marbles out of a cup, what's the probability that it was cup A, B or C. That kinda super fun stuff. And it even had a super confusingish part where they didn't replace the marble after drawn, which changed the percentages - ANYWAYS, the point is, we went over it after the text, and I got it right!! I'm so excited to get this test back.
9. Alsoooo I got an in-class essayish thing back, and I got a 4.3 out of 5!

Anyways, more later :)


  1. Einstein, you may want to explain that the C is for captain. You start out about classes and then say you have a C, so I thought you got a C grade!!

    it's captain, like Captain Jack Sparrow, everyone forgets the Captain.

  2. When did you start saying things like...thrilled to bits??
