have the need to do some rambling. feel free to disregard. covid's been quite an experience. not going to class is still a weird feeling and wasn't anything near my expectations of senior year. i've got my first online lecture tomorrow and my teachers have finally stopped dragging their heels on testing so that's been a change. not talking to classmates has also been really odd, especially because I just want to get together with the lads from English and compare our grades from the Macbeth research papers we submitted back in February, since I got a 96 but wrote some rubbish anyways. our teachers prompts have been out field level crazy, including my iconic hits of "9/11 and Beowulf", "The Faults and Limitations of the United States Legal System (using evidence from the Serial podcast)" and "Macbeth's Crippling OCD" resulting from her guidelines. in other news, i got tested for a load of parasites because my digestive system wasn't excited about being in my body for two weeks but Quest emailed today and said that all is well regarding that, a nice, sound thing to start the week on.
