School’s out!

Hello hello hello helloooo!

I’m sorry for the lack of posts, but I’ve been busy revising for exams…

My Danish exam went pretty well – I got a B which I’m pretty happy about. The subject I got wasn’t one that I’d revised that much on, so yay 😉

My last exam, which was psychology, was this past Tuesday. I’m been revising my butt of practically 24/7 because there was soooo much stuff!

The subject I got was culture/group psychology – again one of the subjects I really hadn’t paid that much attention to… But some of the stuff must have stuck because I got an A! I couldn’t believe it when my teacher told me, I was thrilled!

So now it’s summerbreak – Hopefully only until August 5th. I have to send in my application for the new school by Friday – only problem right now, is that I can’t find my diploma from business school and I have to send it along with my application… If I don’t find it, it’ll cost me about 120 dollars… So keep your fingers crossed 😉

I’m really bad at doing nothing – which is why I need a plan for my vacation. Something to do, you know?

So I’ve dusted off by old traininggear and it’s back to the gym! Also, I’ve decided to make some changes to my diet. I’ve always been naturally thin, but ever since starting on my pills for depression, I’ve gain a bit of weight. Now, to a lot of people this sounds completely insane, but for someone whose never had ‘extra fat’, it’s a pretty hard blow. So from now on, it’s more fruit, vegetables, fish and less red meat, chips, candy and other not so good stuff. 

I’m going to tell ya right now: It’s not gonna be easy – I suck at these kinds of things! I get childish, defiant, angry… And in the end I quit!… Sad but oh so true…

BUT! I’ve been down and unhappy about myself for way too long… I’ll be 29 in 9 days and I don’t want to start off a new year being miserable…

I really hope I can stick to it – so please bear with me if I write some ‘I hate the world’ posts…

Because I really don’t 😉

Take care!

So I had my English exam today…..

……………………………………………….

 

 

And I got an A!!!!

(cue happy music and fireworks)

 

Okay, I’ll provide the pretty sparkly things, but the music is all on you

 

Anyway – the exam went amazingly well! I answered all the questions, and even went a step further most of the time.

Both my teacher and the censor told me, that I was so calm and had an incredible vocabulary, that I practically knew more words that some people at university, which, in my opinion is a pretty big thumbs up.

Afterwards I met up with a friend to have a celebratory lunch (whicch by the way, sooo wasn’t worth the money) but it was nice to see her again. She had her last exam yesterday – got a B and is now a Technical Designer 🙂

I actually bought a teeny bottle of bubbles that I planned on drinking tonight, until my sister asked if I could babysit for a few hours…

So, it’s now close to 10.30PM and I’m sitting here, updating you fine people, with The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy playing in the background. 

I shall now open my tiny bottle of bubbles, pour a glass, give myself a ‘self-five’ and go to bed.

Tomorrow is aaaaaaall about revising for my Danish oral exam on Monday… So much work so god-damn little time!

Take care 🙂

My birthday wishlist

Yes, yes, I know what you’re going to say: “Maria, you should be studying! Shame on you!”

But, in my defence – I have been really productive – I’m pretty much done! Granted, I have been taking a lot of breaks, but my head has been killing me all day – so I needed to give my brain a few time-outs.

Anyway, I was browing the interweb and I saw this blouse/sweater/something-to-wear-on-top-so-you-don’t-walk-out-the-door-half-naked-and-scare-the-crap-out-of-people-thing.

I think it’s really cute and totally not something I’d ever really buy… But something about this really speaks to me….maybe it’s the price…hm…

Anyhoodles, my b-day is less than a month away (28 days but who’s counting?) and figured that this would be a great thing to add to my b-day withlist.

Sooo here it is….!

 

 

I want – I really really really w….would like to be the proud owner of this little furry fella 🙂

Take care!

 

 

Oh… and I’m a small btw… just in case someone thought I shouldn’t live without this… (hint hint nudge nudge) 😉

Exam….

So it’s exam-time for me, or finals, depending on where in the world you are 🙂

I had my two written exams two weeks ago – English and Danish. I think it went pretty well. I won’t get my grades until the end of the month though.

My first oral exam was yesterday (Social Studies). It was a 24 hour exam, meaning on Sunday I got my subject and had a minimum of 24 hours to do a synopsis. Luckily I got a pretty good subject. The exam went well and I got a B so I was more than happy 🙂

Today I got my subject for English… I got Clash Of Cultures and the next is Good Advice Is Rarer Than Rubies by Salman Rushdie. The text itself is pretty easy… But I have to say that I’m having some difficulties relating it to cultureclashes… I have to relate it to some of the texts we’ve read during the year, which is easy enough… But analyzing it and relating it to culturesclashes is pissing me off right now… Hopefully I can find something on the internet that can push me in the right direction.

The exam itself is tomorrow at 10.30am… I’ll let you know how it went tomorrow…

Until then, keep your fingers crossed that I can figure this out..!
