Japanese exams

My mechanics re-sit didn’t go as well as I would have liked yesterday. They seem to always find some new method of delivering the questions in such a way that it throws me off ;_;. Japanese started off fairly well and turned into a horrific mess towards the middle of the reading paper. The sodding […]

Official final day & MYP

So that’s it then, officially. Secondary school is over. Today was the final day for year 13. I can’t say I’ve been much overcome by it, at least, not in any vocal or particularly visible way. I suspect that my muddy mood over the past two days was due to that and the exam stresses, […]

Update update update

Yes. My public updates have become far and few much more recently. Even the friend’s entries are non-existent… Though I can partially attribute it to the stresses of my A-levels and extra work I’m doing, I know it’s just lack of effort as well.

Handicamp return

I have returned. I’m exhausted and a little sad now the departure has actually sunk in. I’m far too tired to write anything now, but I’m more than likely to write up certain parts of the diary I wrote while I was there quite soon. Maybe I’ll even make it a photo diary if I […]

Pre-Handicamp & work

Wow. Long time no update… Even for the people who can view locked posts.. I suppose it’s a good thing, because it means I’m wasting less time online, and although that would imply I’m doing more schoolwork, it doesn’t always mean that. Don’t get me wrong; I have been doing more, but still not enough […]
