Today I messed with Javascript on this site for part of the morning. In the end all I did was make a little pop-up (click on “contact me” in the box above), but for a while I was messing with some menus and whatnot. I don’t know Java or Javascript, so I’m just cut-n-pasting, but it works well enough. I really got into it, I think I’m going to try to learn some HTML or at least spiff up this site somehow. But it needs more actual content first.

Mark mentioned my blog on his site. I’ll try to make it less rambly. Today I did my homework, although perhaps not as much as I should have. My essay for English class sucks in a major way. I just wasn’t in the writing groove today. It comes and goes, my ability to write well. Anyone who does creative work can probably relate. It doesn’t happen to me with math, I think because its a different part of the brain. It’s something that’s just there, that I can turn on and off like a faucet. Creativity comes and goes as it pleases. I hate it when I get inspired when I’m trying to go to sleep. Suddenly my brain kicks into overdrive and is running at 100 miles an hour, and I’m lying in bed staring at the ceiling thinking “it’s going to be a long night.” Green Day’s “Brain Stew” is a good song for this. I like the guitar part, too, the on-and-off harsh sounds. But now I’m beginning to ramble.

I’ve got to put quotes into my English essay. I marked where I want a quote in the writing, and then I sorta flipped through the book and found things that should be appropriate. I’ll do that now, then go to bed and try to study for my Chem. test. Need to figure out who Gay-Lussac and Avagadro (or Avacado, as Mark so articulately calls him) were, what they did. I remember most of it, I think, but need to make sure. What really annoys me is when I don’t understand the experiments they did that proved theories that aren’t correct. Because you know it’s wrong, but it makes sense, and you have to remember all this messed-up shit that doesn’t make any sense at all. Whatever, time for English.
