Bright spots

I'v been rewatching seasons 1 and 2 of Stranger Things so Alicia and I can watch S3 when she gets home next week. I loved it the first time around, but I'm just as in love with David Harbour this second time around as I was then. It makes me worried, though. He's been in a ton of headlines regarding S3. I'm completely unspoiled, but I'm starting to fear there's something significant for Hopper in S3.

If you've seen it, please don't tell me!

In other news, Alex got his AP scores yesterday. He took five AP classes last year - English, US History, Seminar, Calculus, and Psychology. He got 4s in three of them, which should be good enough for college credit, depending on where he ends up. I'm a little relieved. He doesn't have the activities that Alicia had in high school, so he has to rely more on grades and testing to impress. He's doing great so far. He's got a 4.2 GPA, and his SAT was 1430, which are more than solid enough. He's scheduled to take the SAT subject tests in October, since he wants to apply to a couple schools that require them. I have no doubt he'll blow the math one out of the water. He did for the composite test. That kid is crazy smart that way. I hope for his sake it's enough.
