    Math test didn't go over too well. A little more confident about French, though, not by a lot; mark of maybe 90 at the most?

    Wow, I am the man! My last minute, "wing it" presentation went super well and my instructor used it as an example for the rest of the students to use in their own presentations! I spent maybe an hour total on the research paper and going over a few possible intros for my speech in my head and it ended up being everything the instructor wanted, haha!

    What a relief.
    Someone once told me that Misty's cameos in Advanced Generation help make it easier knowing that she is no longer a series regular. They couldn't have been more wrong. After she leaves behind Togepi she returns to her gym more alone than ever AND ON TOP OF THAT, her last cameo was in 2005. 2005!?!?!? ITS BEEN TEN YEARS SINCE ONE OF THE CAST WHO STARTED THE SHOW WAS ACTUALLY ON THE SHOW!?!?

    Why do we even watch Pokemon anymore

    How was the PSAT? I've heard some interesting things about it on twitter and tumblr...

    I just had 2 midterms this week and...don't feel good. General biology and language disorders. I feel like the study guide for language disorders didn't prepare anyone for the midterm.

The legendaries scattered to keep peace. 5 years after Red was defeated, he and the Green are in a situation like before war broke out. They must find the cause of the disappearances of the legendary pokemon or the world would be thrown into disarray.

    Looks like I may be failing a class for the first time ever this semester. My Business Finance professor is literally the worst teacher I have ever had in any class I have ever taken in my entire life. All she does is reads off the extremely abbreviated PowerPoints and she does that so fast that you can't even keep up. Then she teaches the material like she's teaching it to ****ing graduate students when really this is like the most basic finance class at the college that all business major undergrads have to take.

    Perhaps you can try recording the lecture to catch what you miss?

    iirc, some profs don't allow that and are rather strict about it.

    As for me, it's currently a spirit week at school, and people are dressing ridiculously all day every day. I don't feel too good about any of my classes, but not too horribly either. Things are fine. At least now I have a long month ahead of me to ORAS...

    No harm in asking. The worst that can happen is they say no.

    Nearly done with a short paper I had to write for history (it's due today), after struggling to get through it for the past week (knew what I wanted to say but couldn't find the right way to put everything...hate when that happens). After that I have to start studying for my chem and math midterms next week. Quarter system sure goes by fast. >.<

    Turns out my film presentation script "can easily achieve an A grade" if I change like two things.
    And my lecturer was actually impressed that I seem to be one of the few people in my class who included research in my script.
    So yeah...that's great. Now I just have to decide who I want to work with for our filming coursework; my amazing friends who are hideously talented at getting distracted and "winging-it" when it comes to finishing stuff OR some classmates who've asked me if I want to join their group as they're one person short...
    Who do I trust more with my coursework grade is the question.

    Took a mid-term for Civics and Economics today. It wasn't too bad, my essay may have been a little poor, though. Questions weren't two difficult, two answers were always pretty much the closest and I went with my pure knowledge from there.

    Completed the rest of my mid-terms today. I didn't do too well on my presentation for my Themes in Literature class, I think. I guess that's what happens when you improvise. For Biology, it was really hard and some of the stuff we never got taught, but it's cool because my teacher decided not to take it for a grade. Phew. And finally, Musi Specialization mid-term was really easy and I know I did well on it.

    Just had 2 days off because my sixth form college had open days. Spent both days just playing Dragon Age origins, now I have to get up at 6am tomorrow for a full day of lessons...fun.

    At least I get a week off next week (appreciating these half-terms whilst I still have them) although I do have a funeral to go to...

    And if any of the stupid first years shove me out of the way of getting on my bus again then I will make them faceplant the floor of the bus.

    Ugh I hate night classes especially since I live off campus and it's like a 20 minute drive.

    depending on the college, the cost isn't awesome. finding like-minded people or people with something in common can be awesome

    Where I live, you graduate high school after the 10th grade board exam and then you do 11th and 12th grades after which you take another set of exams. The board exams are taken in February for most curricula from our country. However, I'm taking an international level curriculum (IGCSEs), which can be taken in May or in November. If we took them in May '15, we wouldn't get the results in time to get admissions to our new schools (most people change schools after 10th), so we did two subjects in May '14 and we're doing the other six in October and November '14. After that, we're basically out of school until our new schools start (sometime next year in June, most likely). So those of us who are doing the IGCSEs have holidays for ~6 months. Our batch (both IGCSE and local curriculum) graduates in February of next year, so basically we're having our board exams earlier to avoid complications with admissions.

    TL;DR busy preparing for exams from the end of the month 'til November, after which ~6 months of vacation

    I spent my afternoon editing my film studies presentation script and the stupid annotated catelogue to go with it.
    It really shouldn't have taken 4 hours but I ended up sat here debating whether "pathing" was a word for god knows how long.
    Ah the life of an a-level student.

    Two tests in Music tomorrow, one written, one played. I've put off the technical test for almost a week now, somehow, though it'll (hopefully) be a breeze. The theory test I know for sure will be grade-school level material, so no worries about that (though I have lost marks on ridiculously basic components...).

    Had my first midterm today in chem. I'm confident that I did pretty well; there really wasn't anything that caught me off guard (though I had to stop and think about some of the questions for a minute or two). Also found out this afternoon that I got an A on my history paper, so I'm feeling good right now. Hopefully I'll continue the trend with my calc 3 exam on Friday.

    Some short student-teacher conferences today about my progress in classes. Though, whereas I have four classes this day (that means another four conferences tomorrow... joy) I only got one conference done, for Tech (which I did pretty good on). The other three were left off because we ran out of time, the teacher deemed it unnecessary, and the teacher thought to put it off until after report cards.

    So, not many things done today. Though, it's time for me to start on the ISU for Trig... screw accelerated curriculum.

    So I missed all of Friday's classes as well as yesterday's. I was a little worried that I had missed a lot of material. Psshhh....yeah right. Nothing happened. As always, teachers just wasting time away right before exams. They should just tell us not to come until exam day. Anyway, in general, school is great. I hope it stays that way until winter break.
