Except don't tell my teachers, because I want them to think I'm fearless and awesome.
It's very refreshing to be intimidated, though. Does that make me sound awful and arrogant?

Apparently calling an HTML manual a "chunky script" isn't quite going to cut it.
I feel like some sort of cage fighter, because I can already see my opponents for the semester, I know their names and how they can beat me, and I am so ready to put up my dukes and get to business.
