Asking Questions and Handing Out Cookies
Today in first period we had a discussion on exchange rates of currency in other countries. Our teacher talked about it for a while and showed us a website where we could calculate different exchange rates. She showed us various graphs of the changes in time of the value of a certain currency, and it was interesting to me. I had some questions in my head, but I wasn’t sure if they were dumb or good questions.
Near the end of her discussion, I thought about my questions. When I started to seriously consider asking them, my heart pounded like crazy!
And I decided to ask anyways. 🙂
Apparently they were good questions because she thought about them for a while and then talked about them for a long time. I think she was glad that I was really paying attention and thinking about what she was saying, since a majority of our class didn’t seem to be listening.
In second period, I took a Photoshop certification test and was the second in all my teacher’s classes to pass it! I talked to my teacher quite a bit, and she said she was proud of me. The test had a lot of problems and had ridiculously slow loading time, so much so that errors often popped up and it skipped questions. I was surprised that I still was able to pass even with all those difficulties with the test.
I have third period with the same teacher, so I ended up staying in my same seat as I have second period as I was finishing up that test (even though I normally sit in a different seat third period). It took over an hour to get through because of how slow it was. Since I was in a different seat, someone different sat next to me. I don’t know her well but I know that she’s very nice. I talked to her a little about the dance tonight and she showed me a picture of her dress on her phone. After I finished taking the test, we helped each other out with a Photoshop project we were all working on together as a class. One of my friends, Sue, had brought me cookies and a really nice card that morning for my birthday (since it’s on Sunday). I offered the girl I was sitting next to one of the cookies, and she smiled and said thank you. She then told me happy birthday and we talked about turning 18.
When I saw Sue later I offered her one of her own cookies, and she was eager to have one too. Later in 5th period I gave another cookie to my lab partner Ben and he apparently liked it a lot because he was acting silly and dancing after I gave it to him.
Several people wished me happy birthday throughout the day, and it was nice. I had a pretty good day, and I’m looking forward to the weekend!
