Voicemail has its uses, for example, when one won't be able to pick up the phone for awhile, but needs to relay a message immediately, or when other forms of communication are not possible, i.e. e-mail or texting is inconvenient or irrelevant.

However, I still usually end up ignoring it, thus rendering most of the pros as moot.

On the subject of high school friends, just because you're different, doesn't mean you can't be friends.

Pi is wrong.

Well, actually, maybe it would just be better to use what is currently known as 2*pi. I've always thought it would be easier if sine and cosine had periods that were just pi, not 2pi.

So should pi be 6.283185...? Should pi be the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its radius, instead of diameter? If so, it would take about 50 years for this to gain any momentum in the mathematical community.

Thoughts from a Sentimental Senior

Something about late nights must make me ponder about life.

I am a senior. I have a year of school left before this era of my life is over. How time flies. Wasn't I just a freshman?

I don't want the good times to stop. I know that I have to move on. I realize that the future is full of great times, too. But still, I can't deny the great moments spent in high school.

Next year is the last year. I want to make the most of it. Carpe Diem! Take chances and go forth! This summer has so far felt... different. I believe it to preclude a change in school life next year. But will this be so simple?

Change is constant, but likewise, always resisted. Some people will always try to stop change. This year is going to be different, but definitely not without its problems.

Thing that I may have regretted not doing in the past, I will try to go after. Will this new approach to life be well-received by others? Who knows? Will it be better for me? Who knows? I feel somewhat obligated, however, to do what I can to make sure that this last year in high school is the best possible.

Thinking back to 9th grade, so much has changed. I was more of a reserved introvert, held by self-restraint, unwanting of the unknown. Now I am embracing it, seeing it as a chance for revitalization. In the course of 3 years, 75% of high school completed, the metamorphosis is almost complete.

There is one more year left before I will be pushed out into the real world, before all the others will be getting jobs, serving in the military, studing in universities, living a much different life than now. Scary, yet exciting.

I can't wait for college. Not that I'm not sad to leave high school, but I understand that I must move on and tackle this new challenge.

It's all been leading up to this point. Every action, thought, idea, instruction, and interaction has made me into this person. Everything since I was born has had some effect that eventually led up to this. Now I can take control and push forward. I will gain momentum and not grow weak. The past is good to remember, but I must not lose grasp of the present and not lose sight of the future.

It's about halfway into the break and thus it's enough winding down. Time to start accelerating to prepare for 12th grade.

Here I come, June 15, 2007!

    Just a quick sidebar... it seems like my paragraphs are very choppy... they don't flow into each other well? I guess that's the side effects of being stuck in a contemplative mindset.

    More transitional phrases. Tone down on your points more and try to summarize your "hidden" points in your summary a bit more. That should help a little bit... I think...

    Anyways, I totally agree with you. It's time to "get our rear in gear!"

    Wow. I kind of feel the same way as far as this summer feeling different. I don't know what it is, but it's not like last year. I've had a lot of time to think about things; the whole moving on in life things was one in particular...

    Anyways, me gusta... Great way to look at things...
