Subject Choices

My subject choices for next year are due on Tuesday. We only carry on 3 of our A levels, and get to drop the other one. Up until yesterday I was sure that I wanted to drop German, but after yesterdays reslts I am thinking that maybe I should drop Biology. The thing is the thought of doing German for another year after this fills me with dread. The only thing that has been getting me through German this year is that I can drop it at the end of the year. At the same time as hating it though, I kind of like learning German. But I prefer Biology. I think that maybe I am better at German though, and I don't want to carry on Biology if I get a bad grade again in the summer.

If only I could drop them both, and just do Psychology and History. That would make me very happy. But that cannot happen, so I shall have to choose one. It is just so hard to decide which one I am less rubbish at (even though for some reason my predicted grades are A's).

Exam Results

Here in England it was results day for January exams today. I got back the results for my Psychology and Human Biology exams that I sat in January. Let's start with the good: I got an A in Psychology! And now the not so good: in Human Biology I got a D. Well done me. I really messed that one up.

The worst thing is that I really wasn't expecting it. I came out of the exam thinking that I had done alright. So when I opened my results I was really surprised to see a D. Put that together with the fact that all of my friends had A's, and maybe the occasional B, and I was pretty unhappy. I felt better later on though, when I found out that the majority of my Biology class had not got very good results. There were only two people in our whole class who got an A.

I can retake the exam in the summer, so hopefully I will do better then. I just have to pay £15 and do a load more revision. I am not at all envious of next years A level students who won't have January exams, and won't have that opportunity. I think that it is unfair not to have re-takes because sometimes with all of the pressure, and the nerves you just don't do as well as you should have.

Snail's pace

My Internet is being incredibly slow at the moment. Also my brothers got an X-box for Christmas, which may seem like it has nothing to do with this, but because we live in the middle of no-where our Internet connection is not great (it is just especially bad at the moment). This means that whenever they play fifa on x-box live (which, if they had their way would be all day), no one else is allowed to go on the Internet, because it makes the game laggy. So anyway I do not exactly think it's fair that because they now have this x-box I can't go on the Internet. But my parents make us share the 'internet time'. I feel like a 5 year old, with my allotted time for going on the Internet. I cannot be bothered to argue with my brothers every night over who is going on the Internet though. So this is my only choice.

This has led me to the discoveries that a) I hate x-box live with a passion, b) I spend a lot of time on the Internet and c) I do not know how people survived without the Internet. They must have gone outside (outside? noooo) and socialised ith people (ugh socialising? noooo).

So let me see, a list of things you can do without the Internet:
- Watch TV, although there is never anything on
- Read a book, but right now I have no new books to read
- Homework
- Watch paint dry... ;)
So basically there is not much to do. ;)

London

So I went to London yesterday to go to a University fair, and it struck me how different London feels after having gone to NYC. Being the small town girl that I am, London has always been the big busy city, but yesterday it really didn't seem busy. There were quite a few people at Trafalgar square when we walked past, but really it wasn't very busy at all. Maybe it is the time of year or something.

But anyway it was the first nice day we have had in a while, and it was so nice to just be able to walk from the Conference centre (where the University fair was held), to the theatre. Google chrome has it's own spell check, and for some reason it seems to think that centre is spelt center and theatre is spelt theater, so I just had an intense moment of questioning my entire life because I can no longer spell. I'm just kidding, but I did become rather confused, and had to do three different spell checks.... So anyway side track aside, what was I actually saying in this post? Aah yes London. So anyway I went to see the Musical Jersey Boys, which was good, but doesn't beat We Will Rock You for my favourite musical ever. 

So anyway this spell check is really confusing me, so I need to go find some way to turn it off.
