more academic rambling :| but i just need to get it out of my system.
my parents didn't really say much about my report but i could tell they were just the teensiest disappointed with my average... well, compared to last semester's, which was 90.5%.
so here were the marks for mid-terms and finals:
- music - 90/91
- business - 94/93
- science - 81/82
- english - 97/93
now my average ended up not even in the 90s (89.8%)! so close! i got a 100 on the music exam but it only riased my mark by 1%. asdfghjkl!!
well, i have a relatively easy, albeit mind numbingly boring semester 2. my first 3 classes are all in the same hallway in the 3rd floor, and last period in a portable.
i have, honestly, the most boring subjects imaginable - careers, religion, french, math. i do enjoy french but it's not explosively fun and like i said, french at this school is way below hnm's standards. it's easy marks but then it makes it soooo dull.
these subjects would really be all that bad if they had the right teacher and the right students in it. religion is always boring, there's nothing to be done about that seeing as i've read the bible already... KIDDING.
but um, anyone who goes to church every week as i've done for all my life, would know everything there is to know about the bible stories. the rest is just common sense.
careers could've been interesting if i had the right teacher, but i don't! i tried changing it with guidance but they said they weren't allowed, so i'll have to stick with it!
math is fast becoming my favorite period - i hate/despise/loathe/[insert synonym] it still but my teacher is so awesome and the people in it are da bomb bahahahah. i'm gonna have to do my homework e-v-e-r-y-day so i don't almost fail like i did last year. and then ended up having to do a 1 week cram session for everything from september so that the exam would save me.
3C lunch is horror & merde but i've found some people to sit with so hopefully we'll get closer as the (half) year goes by. they seems pretty fun, so at least it won't be awkward.
i really miss certain people and i only catch glimpses of them. AAAAAA what to do?!
another note, got a new violin (for now) and i'll be pretty occupied with that for a while. it's loud, expensive and beautiful - i hope i get to keep it!
i'll be on the edge until... um, forever really, if i don't get my violin exam marks.
valentine's day is coming up & i honestly like how it's such a cute holiday but it's stupid really. i celebrate for the saint, not commercialism c: but it is a very cute holiday. i know some people are in a dilemma for it, but at least i'm free from that.
