Aww, Mr. Hall gave me a card for graduation haha. Hmm.....I always was under the impression that my comments in his class vexed him, however it says here that he "missed [my] sense of humor this year." Haha, that is all. :o) Current Mood: working

there was that fire drill, and we saw mr. hall and when we were to go in the building again, our door was locked, so mr. hall was all impatient and banging on the door. someone finally let us in and then he ran up the stairs (i was surprised his lungs still supported him). then he went to the door and that was locked. so he started to bang on the door with his fist and he did that thing with his finger that said come here and it made me laugh and want to be in ap us history again. Current Mood: awake

Guess what, Mr. Hall?
I pwned your exam, although I was expecting it. Now I can be your friend. See, if I had gotten anything lower than a five, you probably would hate me. Now you can write my reccomendations! Have fun with your $50 Mr. Hall. Maybe you can go golfing (or buy a golf sweatshirt). Current Mood: accomplished

Since we haven't seen a Mr. Hall fanclub update in a while.......
I tried to wear the dunce hat I made in spanish all throughout history class, but I chickened out and only wore it for the first thirty seconds :oP Mr. Hall gave me one of those Anndal looks, where you are made to feel extremely stupid, and said, "So you're a dunce?"
Anyway, we watched the videos, yadda yadda, and he started talking about reforms to education and said "YOU. If you decide, in the middle of your medical studies, that you don't want to be a doctor but rather a historian because Mr. Hall's class inspired you so much, and you tell your dad and he's like, 'OK, whatever makes you happy!' then you may not be paid for by Florida anymore?" And I was like ......... I want to leave florida. I didn't say that my dad would also never ever EVER say that.....he'd be like wtf?!?!?! I'm not paying for your college anymore! You're wasting your life! You'll be poor! yadda yadda yadda
Later in class, we were talking about the positives and negatives of the counterculture of the sixties and at the end I thought of an effect and I asked "Mr. Hall, would you consider the counterculture to have spurred the conservative resurgence?" and he was like "Well, absolutely." So I said "So shouldn't we add it to our list of negatives?" At first he was confused, but then he got it and was like "Well see, I have to be a balanced teacher, but if you want, you can write it on the board. Do you want to?" Of course I said yes and I wrote "Conservative resurgence!!" with a sad face under the exclamation points. He asked trevor if he was going to take that from me and trevor was like ::meep:: and mr. hall asked the new kid from north carolina if it was ok with him and he said "yeah, I don't care" but then mr. hall added and <--or pointing to the positive side because he was a "fair teacher." Then he started to ask me if I was playing games and I tried to hide in Sunil's sweatshirt because I he seemed good-natured when asking, but I didn't want to take any chances.
I also told him about my dictionary dot com word of the day e-mail for friday the thirteenth (word=triskaidekaphobia=fear of thirteen or friday the thirteenth) and it said that FDR was scared of friday the thirteenth so mr. hall changed the "nothing to fear but fear itself" thing to nothing to fear but friday the thirteenth. Apparently Napolean, Hoover, Twain, and Robert Wagner had the same thing. wOw. Current Mood: amused

mr hall smokes mavericks. during the fire drill friday, i saw his car and looked inside and he had like 5 packs of mavericks, one of those typical black ashtrays with cuts in the side to place burning cigarettes in, and a baseball cap. so eddy and i figure he must drive down to miami every day and back to smoke all his cigarettes, while wearing his baseball cap (team unknown as of now).
i don't mean to be stalker like. it's just that i've always wondered what it is that mr hall smokes.
congratulations , everyone, on not dying before the AP history exam. you know we rocked it. for the last essay, i chose the one about social movememtns in the 60s and i fucking wrote everything my mom has ever told me about the antiwar movement and how hellish it was to be 19 in the year 1969. Haha. that's first hand testimonial our teacher wouldn't be able to provide.
eddy grodin is going to ask his mom how to nominate a teacher for teacher of the year. cause you know, you've learned more about writing essays in general from hall than from mrs schilit. and i find him an incredibly motivating teacher because he constantly raises his standards. like a football coach that makes the goal posts farther apart every practice. Current Mood: fuzzy

son of a bitch i got the biggest verbal beat down of my life from hall today
my brain crapped out during the essay and i couldnt think of or organize shit which resulted in a crappy essay with scattered ideas one of the things he said that was kinda like a kick in the balls was "im confused by your lack of organization"
so i got a 76 on it and the entire time as he was going over it he wouldnt stop look at me and he just kept pointing out all the shit i did wrong
i feel so bad like ive let mr hall down because "it was the last chance to prove my self" to him on a timed in class essay
and if that wasnt bad enough he decided to compare my essay to mike djesurny(sp?) i was like FUCK!
bah curse that essay Current Mood: very very shitty

Like Celine said, Hall was rather funny. It's a shame no one can remember what it is he said. Oh yeah! He talked about Edward Hall and was like "OH MY GOSH!" and made these funny gestures and I laughed as did most of the class. He seemed to be in a good mood today. I think he liked me today because I was following with his lecture in the AP Prep book and I asked a "good" question.
Haha, I love how Altan can get Hall worked up. And I love how Trevor incites so much contempt in that man.
At the IB Senior Celebration, the students said that the one thing they learned was that all good presidents come from Ohio and apparently Mr. Hall pumped his fist and said "YEAH!" upon hearing that.
I think that I'm going to ask him for a college rec because it seems like he'd spend time on it. And I do well in his class.....so I don't know. We'll see. Stephanie is planning on asking him as well.
OK, bye. Current Mood: Mr. Hall--cheerful
i love mr hall...and his hungarian gulash.
he said a couple of things today that made me laugh. i forgot them

my girlfriend (who didn't have mr hall last year unfortunately) informed me today that there is some program about FDR on the history channel tonight at 9 oclock.
love anndal Current Mood: caffeinated

Mr. Hall recounted for us the story of Archie and Margaret. It was actually very cute and I couldn't help "awwing", but I saw Anndal, Christina, and Carli "aww" too, so I suppose I'm not too stupid.
He showed us pictures and he asked Celine which one was her "handsome history teacher." She was like "hehe--wtf?" so I looked and I didn't see any handsome history teachers, but I was able to recognize him right off the bat. He used to skateboard......and he actually looked like most normal people do. I wish Mr. Hall was my friend. Lee suggested that we go before school and hang out with him, because that's what Christy does sometimes. I actually think that I might--one day. We should all go hang out with Mr. Hall outside of class, because he seems really cool and less gruff outside of class--he actually laughs O.o
I wonder what Erik did to Hall that made him despise the conservativeness of Trevor. Granted, Trevor is a bit air-headed and probably can't tell his right hand from his left, but I just love how Mr. Hall addresses the evils of conservatism solely to Trevor. Is liberalism even in his interests on the profile?
22-days to E-day, May 6. Current Mood: silly-Mr. Hall's mood
mr hall was acting silly today. with archie and margeret.
i was very very scared when he approached me with the picture and asked me to point out the very handsome history teacher i am...thank you jeanette for saving my ass.
trevor's funny in the class. the soviets invaded germany. hahaha. who is prime minister of the english and what party is winston churchill. seemed to accuse trevor for being conservative.
man wtf i was lookin at the info page dealy and nowhere on it does it say anything about ohio. how could you possibly forget about the greatest state in the union and mr halls brith place, ohio!?!?!?! Current Mood: WTF

Mr. Hall asked us all if we thought that women had more manual dexterity, and I raised my hand really high and said "Yes, becuase we're better," and then Mr. Hall came over and said "Yeah, better at threading needles and sowing." It made me really sad and he said I set myself up for that...although I didn't see how. :o( Also, Anndal compared aviation school to IB and Mr. Hall got grumpy because his pet rock has more energy than we do.
He was rather grumpy today.
Jeanette/Netty Current Mood: grumpy-Mr. Hall
