I'm not dead yet.

I sat the history final on Wednesday and it was much more difficult than I'd expected. Or at least the multiple choice part. I mean, questions like "What was the religion in the Mogul empire in India?" or "Who moved the Pope from Avignon back to Rome?" or "How many days lasted the Berlin Airlift?" just weren't cool. It felt like a guessing game. I know about at least 6 mistakes so far (there were 40 multiple questions) and there's surely more. Then, for the source work, I chose the documents about Cuban missile crisis. It was either that or the Munich agreement from 1938, but that was too related to the Czech Republic that I felt I should know more about it lol The essay topics were terrible as usually so I wrote 'The Treaty of Versailles was the principle cause of Hitler's rise to power' and I basically made Hitler a nice, caring man lmao I mean, they could use the essay for Nazi propaganda right away *facepalm* Oh well.

And today I sat my first university entrance exam. In Prague at 8.30am so we went there yesterday with my mother. It wasn't as difficult as I'd expected this time. It was an English text (about Jihad) and we had to translate it to Czech with the use of a dictionary. However, I wouldn't want to go to this school so I don't particularly care if I'm accepted or not.

Now I'm gonna catch up on House fics lol

Yay =)

So finally I went shopping with my father and bought my belated b-day present. Yep, a new camera=) The old one usually dies after taking like 5 pics, meh. Anyways, clearly, what else to do with it but take pics? lol

Random. Maybe even scary. So beware.  )

So, the test wasn't  as difficult as I thought it'd be. That doesn't mean I didn't fuck it up though. I don't feel that good about writing, 'cause the topics were terrible, and listening was a small disaster too. I'm too tired to rant about it now, maybe later.

Also, I've been messing around a bit and made myself a header. Dunno if I like it enough to keep it but it'll have to do for now. Yes, it's Nick Cave. And the lyrics are from 'Lay Me Low', by Nick, clearly.

Tomorrow (or today, really) I'm going to lunch with my father, eh. So that should be interesting.

Bed now, I can hardly keep my eyes open. Night! =)

barush: (alex)
So the CAE test is tomorrow. Well, the written part at least, the oral will be the next Saturday. It starts at 9.30am and ends at 3pm so I've a feeling I'll fall asleep sometime during the thing lol Other than that, I'm afraid I'm not gonna pass, which is pretty usual, as I'm never confident before any test. The fact that I haven't studied all that much doesn't help either. However, if I do fail it'll be pretty costly - the exam cost 5000 Czech crowns which equals to like 185 euro. From my own pocket, so I need to make my mother give me the money back sometime before I get the results preferably. Anyways, keep your fingers crossed for me haha



barush: (loverman)
I'm supposed to study. So instead I've been messing with my LJ. Finally I've changed the horrendous layout so now I'm happy with it =) I might add some header sometime, if I manage to make one or persuade somebody to make me one lol

School was boring as usually.

Also, I've been thinking about joining the Red Cross. One must start somewhere, eh? I've done some research and decided to go there and ask a few questions (what joining would require etc.), but I'm fairly sure I wanna join at least as a volunteer at first and then see if I wanna become a member. I wanna start working on my career as a humanitarian worker. No, really. Longer rant about this particular thing is to come I guess. 

Now, Spanish *sigh*

Yay

I love my best friend. Really, love her, 'cause this must be the first time she did something just for me and not because she had some benefit from it too. I mean, it's just a book, but still, that's something so rare coming from her. To enlighten you, my friend went to Prague today to see a musical and I asked her if she wasn't going to this huge bookshop 'cause I'd need a Spanish book from there. And, even though it's on the opposite part of the city and she didn't need anything there she got me the book that I had desperately wanted for months. Now you're probably thinking 'wtf she's talking about?' 'cause that's something completely normal, right? But my best friend, as much as I love her, isn't the one to go out of her way for others. So now I'm super excited 'cause I'll have the book when we meet and to the top of that I know now she's probably not such a hopeless case =)

Also, today I've found out I'm completely screwed history -wise. In today's seminar the teacher showed us a few years old written history final exam (the one I'm taking in April) and I knew like... almost nothing. There are 40 multiple choice questions, then working with sources and an essay. We had one copy for a pair and together with my classmate we got 20 out of the 40 questions right, but at least 10 of the 20 were just a fluke... So go figure. I haven't started to study yet so now I know what my weekend will be dedicated to *sigh* Next Friday we're writing a 'mock final exam' from history, which will be basically the same thing as we did today, but taken in controlled conditions and marked afterwards, so we know what April will be like. So, anyone know how to study world's history from Ancient Greece and Rome up to this year in one week? No? Me neither. Good times.

Also, I've started the Che fic. And it'll be terrible, I can tell, but at least I'll get it out of my system.

barush: (Default)
I should really, really, really study law and philosophy now, but I'm so tired I can hardly keep my eyes open. I hate the teacher for giving us a test and examining in the same day from two completely different things, grrr. Doesn't help there are like 30 pages of law at least, which I haven't even looked at yet. For some reason, philosophy is easier for me to study/remember so I'm gonna start with that.

On another note, I just got back from the hairdresser. He was as cute as ever=) And my hair is kinda short again and a bit... purple I guess. Well, something between red and purple anyways.

Oh and my Che Guevara fic is now planned, almost, so I just need to get around to actually writing it. And omg I can't wait for today's (tomorrow's for me, I'm downloading it) House =) Nipple twister ftw lol

Other than that, I've sent my last uni application today so that's over and done with and now I'm just praying I'll actually get somewhere *sigh* The entrance exams are usually in May and June so I've a while yet to start freaking out.

'Kay, that's it I guess, Marcus Aurelius and others are calling. Can hear them, really.

barush: (Suns sweat)
So first of all, thanx to everybody who commented on my last entry <33 I love you all guys <33 I stayed home today, but I feel better now so school it is tomorrow probably.

Anyways, seeing as I'm not up to studying yet, I'm doing memes. Yes, memes , there are two.

This one I stole from
[profile] demetrelli 

USING ONLY ONE WORD! It's not as easy as you might think! Copy and paste (into notes) and change the answers to suit you and pass it on. It's really hard to only use one word answers. Be sure to tag the person you received it from!

One word  )

'Kay, so that wasn't easy at all.

The second meme, I was tagged by
[profile] thegreenkat

Yes, I'm still alive. Surprised? I've been around, just didn't feel like updating LJ. Dunno why, I'd have a lot to whine about actually.

Anyways, I've sent most of the university applications, 5 to be precise, and I'll think about sending more. I've till the end of February to do that. Basically I've stuck to my initial ideas and applied for English, Spanish and special pedagogy, divided among 3 cities (Olomouc, Brno and Prague, if it tells you anything). However, I've only one for Prague so I'll think about something more. And I'm starting to have this feeling that I won't get anywhere, which is entirely possible. Oh well.

Other than that, I've finished the seminar work of doom for history. It took me like 3 days only, so that was surprising. I guess that with the level of apprehension I feel the time spent on the actual task lowers exponentially. I was writing about my grandmother's life before, during and after the World War Two, but I've probably mentioned that here already, ages ago.

Oh and we've had holidays this week, which I've spent writing the seminar work and reading House fics. Tells a lot about my life, eh? But I've been to cinema at least to see the new movie about Che Guevara and I loved it <33 If you're a history freak, like Cuba or are just interested in El Che, it's a must see.

Now I've a craving to write. Maybe even House, hm. Well, I'll see.

Quick note

I'm  going to Vsetín today, where the funeral for my grandfather will be held tomorrow. Dunno when I'll be back, but it might be on Sunday even, so talk to you when I get back  =) Take care all of you <3
barush: (Suns sweat)
So today's my best friend's prom (or not really a prom, rather only a graduating ball but everyone understands, right?). Anyways, today's hers and tomorrow's mine. And I'm going to both. And don't feel like going to either. Oh well. But then again I promised her I'd be there today and it actually seems like she wants me to be there so even though I won't know that many people I'll try to get over it for my bff =) And tomorrow everyone's gonna get drunk and I've no idea what it'll be like but hopefully it'll turn out okay.

I'll be actually wearing a dress tomorrow. I look like an idiot in it, I'm too fat to wear a dress but it's a kind of an unwritten rule for these things so I don't wanna stand out. Most of the girls in my class are asking each other all the time 'what dress are you gonna wear?', what colour?', long or short?', but somehow I'm usually not a part of such discussions. Usually. Anyways, that's probably the only positive thing about this, the dress-stuff will stop lol     

And my mother managed to piss me off once again. She told me something along the lines of "imagine you're showing the pics from the ball to your kids and telling them: "Look how fat I was at that ball," hahaha." Apparently it's really funny but if the comments don't stop I'm gonna snap and then it won't be funny anymore. Grrrr.

Anyways, if I'm not around much this weekend I'm probably sleeping off the hangover. I'm not planning to get drunk too much but one never knows.

I said let's all meet up in the year 2000.
Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown.


So I guess it's time to wish you all a
Happy New Year!

since I dunno how long I'll be on. I'm going to a tea room with a few of my friends and then I'm planning to watch Fight Club to celebrate the new year =)) Anyways, I hope you all will have a wonderful time and let's hope 2009 is (even?) better than 2008!

Love you all <33

I've been extremely bored this morning so I've taken a few random pics. Of our Christmas tree and my room mostly. Random. Really. And beware, my table is a mess.

Pics (nothing special though, so don't get your hopes up) )

I need to read a whole fucking book in probably a day and a half 'cause I'm so fucking lazy. It's 'Lucky Jim' by Kingsley Amis, I need to read it English but the language is kinda weird and difficult (as it was written in 1950s or smt) so I guess I'll end up reading it just for the sake of reading it and won't remember anything anyways. God, sometimes I really wanna slap myself 'cause I'd totally deserve it *sigh*

When I take a break from the damn book (which will be soon, I assume) I might post a lengthy rant or might dig up some Bradford pics and post at least a couple 'cause I think you guys deserve to see them for putting up with me when I was ranting 24/7 about it. But, knowing myself, I won't promise anything.

barush: (15 feet)
I'm seriously contemplating not going to school tomorrow (or today, actually), hm. I'm sick and didn't manage to study all the shit I was supposed to. And that's just not cool. Then again, it's probably better to be examined tomorrow even if the results should be disastrous, than studying the same stuff for next week. Which I might end up doing anyways 'cause the teacher won't have time to examine everyone. Gosh, such a dilemma.

I guess I'll decide in the morning.

And I should probably post some sensible entry too, for once. Oh well.

barush: (Default)
Someone make me stop reading House, kplsthx. I'll be eternally grateful.
barush: (Default)

Yup, I is back!

 

Long story short, my fucking net didn't work for two weeks *facepalm* I'm sure you can all understand my agony...

Anyways, I'm on my mother's laptop now and I can't type on this weird keyboard to save my life so I'll cut it short. Nothing really happened during those 2 weeks, the only thing worth mentioning is that I've seen seasons 2 and 3 of House <33 Yeah, no life, so sue me. Oh and I'll have new furniture in my room (finally!), it's being put together by this nice gentleman right now lmao

So.... What have I missed? =)


barush: (Default)
So, my second wisdom tooth is gone. Yay?

Well, this time it was a bit worse than the first one. I've been to a different doctor 'cause it needed to be done surgically. So I'm sitting there, the doctor's doing something in my mouth (thank God for local anesthesia) and suddenly he tells the nurse, "we'll need to cut this part off...hand me the knife...no, the bigger one..." I mean, what doctor actually says 'knife'? lmao Anyways, it doesn't hurt yet but it's bleeding like a bitch. I mean, I love vampires and all but my own blood...ew. Well, at least I'm not going to school today. Dunno about tomorrow. Pity I'm going to have the stitches taken out on Wednesday 'cause we have holidays then. Oh well, it hasn't been nearly as bad as my mother was telling me it would be. Then again, the anesthiasia's still working so I might change my mind in a few hours.

I guess I'm going back to bed. My back hurst as well so I can't sit for long.

barush: (suicide)


Random whining ensues. You've been warned.  )

I think I've just decided what I wanna study. I'm so happy about it.

Also, I need to put down the things I must should do during the weekend, before I forget it all. Feel free to skip this shit.

- do the deleted meme  Done!
- write some reasonable LJ entry
- do English seminar homework Done!
- write 'receta' to Spanish
- read Lucky Jim (at least a few pages *sigh*)
- put up Bradford pics (this is with a huge question mark but I'll try)
- WRITE LPFE FIC (God damn it I need to get on with that!) Done! Yes! I've written quite a lot, according to my standards anyway.

Should be all.

Later.
