It is hot. Butt hot. Hot as Satan's balls. Hot in Topeka. It is all manner of hot. I have come close to melting on several occasions today. It was so hot we had gym in the air-conditioned auditorium (may I add, the only air-conditioned room in the school) and the Gym Buddies and I played Tetris the entire period. It was so hot that we had to take the vocab final in another room.

Speaking of the vocab final, it was incredibly easy. Not worried about that at all. I'm more worried about the science test tomorrow and Friday, which is based off of something we learned yesterday. Someone, tell me how this is fair. Oh, and it was muggy and hot in science, too.

I presented in world civ. today! I'm sure you can all guess that it was hot. I was sweating like a fat guy, and not even from nervousness. I was pretty nervous and excited in the beginning, but I think it all turned out really well :) My presentation, which was rambling and jumbled last night, came out much better today. I think we got out point across, at the very least.

However, I was surprised--and admittedly, kind of disgusted--that two people asked why torture was a bad thing. It wasn't even the pathetic wannabe anarchists who asked that, either, but normal, relatively unpolitical people. I could get into all sorts of arguments about how torture is immoral in the lightest sense and barbaric in the realistic sense, and how a modern society can never call itself civilized, and never call itself better than the primitive countries it fights, if it resorts to such measures--but I won't, because I don't have the time, and I must've made my arguments about four times today and I don't feel like repeating myself.

Besides all that, the day was pretty uneventful (and hot). Oh, and I wore a dress! It was still bloody hot, though. Didn't alleviate the muderous heat much, you know.

On a final note, today was hot.



  1. They finally put a cooling system into our cafeteria, and it's actually really incredible - it has to do with reservoirs of water on the roof evaporating when the cafeteria gets hot. "Passive Cooling" they call it...

    Oh, and I have a good deal of classes in computer labs, which means, you guessed it, AC.


  2. OH MY GOODNESS, it was so hot here too. I am so glad that we're already out of school already, because my high school does not have AC. D:

    Good luck with finals! You're almost done, eeek!

    And yeah, um, I'm pretty sure torturing people is NOT a good thing... gosh people.
