I had Tae Kwon Do training on Monday night and I’m still in pain two days later. This has made me realise how unfit I truly am. My whole body is still aching, but I like to think it’s because I’ve missed out on training for 1+ month, and Fortunato (DOESN’T MY INSTRUCTOR HAVE THE COOLEST NAME EVER? how fortunato is he to have that name? lol = =;; ) said he would work us hard because of it, at least that sounds better in my head over me being completely unfit.
I’m so glad assessment is almost over. Today I had math and english exams. I was late, as per usual, so I had to take the math test in my last period because it’s a spare. English went surprisingly okay. I’ve been slacking off so much in english because as an ESL-nonwhite-person I should probably work harder at this subject. = =”
We had to write a commentary on an extract from Much Ado About Nothing. In my paper I wrote things like, ” ‘paper bullets’ are a metaphorical/symbolic representation of the good and bad things involved with love” – a bit of BS goes a long way sometimes, “cadence is used to highlight the preceding or following lines within this example ” – not even sure what that meant, but I had told a friend that I would give her a dollar if she mentioned cadence in her paper (also, would someone like to tell me how to identify cadence? xD) so I decided that I should mention it too. I used to feel a lot more comfortable with english as my strongest subject, but the past few exams have made me feel like I was really stretching for time. Today I still feel like I didn’t organise what I wanted to write quickly enough, because she said there was five minutes remaining and I still hadn’t gotten to my conclusion. I shouldn’t worry that much though because it’s only a pass/fail class this term.
Now there’s only one physics test left (I think), and then I am done with exams for this year : )
Ah thinking about my marks is a bit depressing lol. My highest mark was like 90% for psychology, a subject I’m finished with, and lowest mark was something less than 20%. Epik fails = =” Too bad the one subject I did well in this year is the the only subject I won’t be studying next year hah.
Today was also the day of election speeches for my school’s student council. The speeches were pretty funny and I don’t think I could’ve written one as well as any of them :O For a while people would ask me if I were going for it, and it is only now that I regret not going for it. I filmed Ryan’s so if I ever get around to uploading that on youtube I’ll post it in here. My instep mentor tells me that I have some innate ability to lead people, which I always thought was a bit silly because you’d think everyone has that ability, but I do want to prove myself to some people at school. I guess there’ll be other opportunities to do so.
In other news, I really like Alanis Morissette right now. I’ve always liked her but recently I’ve gained a greater appreciation for her work. I know I’m ten years late on the bandwagon, but if liking Alanis Morissette makes me appear as though I am a Lesbian feminist than I am okay with that (PIGEON-HOLING FTL.)
Right now I plan on watching Never Back Down or The Darjeeling Limited. Ah decisions, decisions!
