So as you may know from my previous posts I have been making a website for Technology class. Well on the website I have to make a survey and have at least 6 people go on it. So....i thought why not have my loyal blog followers take the survey? Don't worry its two questions and they are both opinionated! Here's the URL https://sites.google.com/site/dillonc448/survey

So today was my schools "Awards Ceremony" which is held every year towards the end of the year. I got 4 different awards for basically just going to school...One was for simply showing up to Math club that I go to every Monday because i cant go home and theres no French club to go to. Another was given to me for simply being good in French class. It was the Student of the Year Award that my French teacher surprisingly gave to me. I was not expecting this at all most of the time i barely get As in French...but hearing the grades of other people in my French class I guess I kind of deserved it. I also got recognition for just "Competing" at National History Day. Even though I didn't even place (beat out by the school that provided funding for the awards, Coincidence? I think NOT!) I still think that i kind of deserved recognition for how hard NHD was. The last award I got was for getting a 3.5 gpa for the whole year. That was pretty cool but the only reason why i didnt get a 4 is because of the one B i got in language arts! That was kind of disappointing.

So as you know from my other posts my iPod has been broken for some time now...Its aggrivating especially since i love music.
Today my iPod miraculously decided to start working for some reason probably because I've left it alone without headphones in for about a week. However now that they work they are super sensitive. If i even touch the headphone jack or apply any kind of tension on the wire my sound goes almost completely. This is extremely inconvenient because listening to music while my iPod is in my pocket is now impossible to do. Instead i have to just leave my iPod on my desk and listen to it there which is almost no different from just listening to music from my iPod. For now I'm just going to leave my iPod alone without the headphones in and hope that it fixes its self somehow.

So today in tech class were going over more stuff I've done before. The fact that you are even on this site reading this post is proof that i have don this before. We have to create a website using Google Sites which uses the exact same web design tools as Blogger's. The only catch is that we have to add a few different features like a spreadsheet that organizes input data which can be done simply with HTML if i really wanted to type 20 lines of code, instead my teacher decided to take the easy route by making it a simple matter of dragging and dropping the correct embed onto the websites correct page. Even with the simplicity of this project directions are still given to us making this project ETC about 5 minutes.

So i just recently realized that the subject of my ipod has some how escaped my mind whenever i make a new blog post but today im actually going to talk about it. For about a year now my ipod has decided to poop out on me and not work in only one headphone...I think the fact that it only works in one headphone aggrivates me more than if both had broken because now i can hear songs...but some of the lyrics or beats are missing...it stinks. So ever since the first time it broke ive managed to fix it to where it was in barely working condition...but now i fear that it is completely broken. Now both headphones dont work and i cant listen to any music exept for on my computer which is a major inconvenience. I have already contacted Apple to ask them how much it would cost to repair my headphone jack (its already out of warranty), and they wanted a heinious $199!! I could buy a new ipod for that much. So now I am thinking of buying an iPod Classic. Mainly because its older and less likely to break but also because it can hold 160 gb of data. Being an audiophile i have about 5000 songs in my itunes library that i have aquired over the years and currently only about 5 of my 12 playlists can fit on my ipod without it being over memory capacity (its a 32gb ipod touch 2nd gen). Im still trying to fix my headphone jack on my own so i dont waste $249 of my savings for nothing, if you know on any way to fix this problem please comment with a link to how to fix it or just tell me how...

So as all you people who have mothers should know yesterday was Mothers day. For mothers day i had made a card for my mom with a half page letter to her. However i ran into trouble when it came to printing it out. I made the card the Friday before mothers day but because of my lack of time being at home without my mom i couldn't print my card without her knowing. So on Mothers day i spent the morning struggling to get my printer to print out my card properly. It probably looked like to her that i just started making my present to her but it didn't matter because she was so deeply moved by the letter that she cried. Also during this weekend i had to complete a project for math class. Trig isn't the hardest thing in the world but geez this project was like kindergarden work. We had to build a kite and draw blue prints of it. We also had to do research but that was so easy its almost irrelevent. I am almost done with the project and a due date hasn't even been set yet...

So this week has been surprisingly normal besides the fact that I got report cards on Monday. When I received my report card i was appalled that i had 1 B.....AND A C. These were both mistakes made due to my absence the past few weeks at school due to several trips and vacations that i had been attending in the previous weeks. The B I got changed to an A almost immediately by my science teacher because he is a very rational and levelheaded man. However when it came to fixing my C I had to confront my 9th grade Language Arts teacher who is not entirely rational when it came to grades and when within 20 feet of me was almost the opposite of levelheaded. Sadly when i went to go get my grade fixed i found out that she had left the school for some reason...So I was stuck with a massive dilemma, I was in possession of a report card that could very well get me locked in my room for a month. So i did what any rational person would have done, I hid it. Not elaborately i just stuck it in the back of a folder and didn't say anything about it (Mommy if you are reading this I'm sorry but you would have yelled at me if i showed it to you). The next day I got my Language Arts teacher to change it to its proper grade which to my dismay was a B. THE FIRST B I HAVE GOTTEN ALL YEAR!!!! AND ITS THE SECOND TO LAST GRADING PERIOD!!! So yea as you can tell I'm a little irked about that. And that was the most eventful thing that happened all week...
