Title: Guess I might as well say something about it here...
Post by: Gaffit on 19 July, 2008, 01:39:44 pm
In about 11 days I'm going to be moving to the god-forsaken other side of the US (just kidding, please don't hurt me, I'll join your cult, I swear!) and I'm going to be without a computer until all our stuff gets moved. That means I'm only going to have sporadic access to my dad's laptop in the evening for awhile.

So, as the move gets closer and closer, I'm going to be able to spend less time on BP. I already had to pack up my gaming equipment, so I can't use that anymore. ;~;

My cable and internet is getting cut on the 29th and after that, I don't know how long I'm going to be without internet. I expect about a week at minimum.

On the plus side, 10 of my friends are throwing me an Airsoft War as a going-away party. What can I say? The guys know me.

Alas, I cannot. The wheels of fate are turning my friend. The wheels of fate working into ever more synchronized patterns in some sort of massive clock-like thing.

I don't know, that got away from me...

Hold on. You're not moving away, you're coming over to the good side. Excellent. Even the same region.

But I like the Northwest. ;~;

I like not getting hit with frickin' hurricanes, and being able to vote democratic without getting shot.

We don't really get hit with Hurricanes. *Looks at Texas today.* Much.

My plan is to move back to once I finish college. So if all goes according to plan, I should be back in 5 years, give or take.

And I may or may not come back in a casket, varying on my liquor intake during college.

Agreed. They give out free college though.

And I hate moving. I can't even look at a cardboard box anymore. ;v_v

Florida's obviously the coolest state in the southeast.

I have some family in Florida.

Nice place to visit, wouldn't like to stay for the summer.

And I would be completely content with this move if it wasn't for the fact that I was missing over a month of my summer.

School here starts September 18. School in Georgia starts August 13...

And Pennsylvania is the best in the North East.

Most of my relatives live in Pennsylvania. The rest live in Florida. I think that's partially the reason for the move.

Yes it does. I was completely pissed off when I first found this off.

you also get out a whole lot earlier because you start earlier and don't lose all those days due to weather

as for the politics thing...you are moving the Atlanta area...the liberal stronghold of the South...don't worry about that

as for college being free...it's only the tuition cost covered...you still gotta pay for housing, books, medical, and anything else you feel you need to pay for...it's a scholarship system funded by the state lottery, so it has nothing to do with the colleges being sucky...and you have to keep a 3.0 to get it, anyways...so it isn't like they just throw out the money

as for weather...Atlanta has very mild weather year round with very few big storms...a good bit of rain...except there's a drought on right now...I mean...before this year Atlanta hadn't had a tornado in recorded history...it is a bit hot and humid in the summer though

It depends on what part of Jersey you go to.

North Jersey sucks big time.

South Jersey rules.

I'm aware of this. I'm currently maintaining a 3.4 GPA while taking AP classes that I hate (English, Social Studies, ect) in Washington, and I think I'm going to be focusing on technology/math/science based classes that I like for my senior year, so that should raise my GPA a good bit.

In my county we have a school just for math/science/technology...but it just opened last year, so this year there are only freshman and sophomores...no upperclassmen, yet

I'm pretty sure I'm going to North Atlanta High School. Doesn't really matter where I go though, I'm only gonna be in the state for a year before I graduate. 5 if I manage to get the free college.

Question: Does the state of Georgia require a Senior Project of some sort like the Northwest does?

it either depends on the individual school or on the county...I'm not sure
I don't think any in my county did...

I know Druid Hills did do it, but not sure about the rest of DeKalb

not sure about schools in Fulton, but looking at info about North Atlanta, it doesn't look like it does...can't guarantee, but I don't think it does

It looks that I'm going offline sometime Tuesday, as the movers are packing up everything (including my computer) Wednseday. That means that for the next 2 months, I will be on extremely sporadically. I'll try to get on for at least a couple minutes every day, but I'm not sure I'll be able to.
