Perfect attendance.

7 days strong, and that's saying a lot considering what I've been putting up with. Scott mentioned my oceanography homework, and thought he'd make fun of me a little, well, he doesn't have to teach that sits next to me in lab what contour lines on a map are, what they mean, how to read them, how to interpret them, and how to make a cross section using them. Although parts of the ocean floor are indeed flatter than a billiards table, there are a lot of freaking bumps between Cape Cod, and Cap Blanc, and she needed to know "what I got" for every single contour line the entire way across the Atlantic. Overall Oceanography is alright, but right now it's just a lot of confusing, dull, data, that I have to try to make sense of. If anyone want's to relate the Bathymetry, Regions, Heat Emissions, and Gravity Anomalies, across the ocean, please, fill me in. Anyway, here is some bathymetric data for you. Feel free to make a cross section if you wish.

P.S. Sorry this is so boring, I was told to update and this is what I'm up to.

P.P.S. Sorry for being so negative, I'm just already feeling the annoying kids in my classes migrating towards me. I have a cross country ski trip on Saturday, and some LARGE, sweatpants wearing, sweaty, non-traditional student will be riding with me. He wasn't happy with our meeting point because, "he couldn't park his truck there, his tools will get stolen." First off, why am I driving him if he has a truck? Second, is he really going to argue with me about this when I'm driving him? Third, he argued with the teacher about what route we should take, so I'm sure he'll want to tell me how to get to Eldora once we're on the road. Just how I want to start my Saturday at 7am. Wow, lot's of negativity.
