This is gonna be real short, 'cause I just need to get it out of my system.

Remember the history written final I've been whining about recently? We got it back and to my huge surprise I got 1! =) It was really close though, I had 51 points out of 60 and 49 was already 2. But the over all marks weren't that good. The most points anyone got was 53 and there were just 4 people who had 1 (out of 16). Honestly, I think the teacher (our class teacher, no less) could have been less strict. Oh well. I guess I can be glad they, for some unexplainable reason, liked my Nazi essay =) And for the oral part I can get maximum 40 points, so altogether the max is 100 and 80 is still 1, 60 still 2... So that means I must get at least 9 points out of 40 to have 2, which would be totally okay with me =) Spanish, on the other hand, will be much worse.

Now to the not so happy news. You might also remember me stressing over the uni applications. Today I got all the invitations for my uni entrance exams and guess what? They're all in one day!!! =/ Prague, Brno and Olomouc, meh. In Brno I have Spanish and English in one day, so they'll move one of them to the next day, but it still means the rest is on the 1st June. So I guess I'm decided I'll sit the exams in Olomouc on the 1st (English and Spanish) and either English or Spanish in Brno on the 2nd, depending on what they'll move. SO this basically means I'll fucking stay here for uni, which really, really sucks. Well, depending if I'll be accepted here. If not, then I'm screwed 'cause I doubt I'll get to Brno. My last hope would be the school in Prague for which I've already sat the exams.

So, I'm pissed beyond belief. Also, I'm sorry if you made it here. I just needed to whine.

barush: (insomnia)
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
barush: (Suns sweat)
What a game!!! Yes, Chelsea, yes! =) And Frank <33333

Ahem. Champions League game, Liverpool - Chelsea 4:4, but Chelsea goes to the  semifinal =))

I managed to completely forget about history. And Sunshine =/// Oh well. So, tomorrow. Wish me luck? Although some of you already did, so thank you <33

I guess I should go to bed now so good night everyone =)

barush: (House/Wilson)

That happens when you stay home from school and read what happened in the epi BEFORE smb uploaded it. I don't think I can wait 'till the afternoon, let alone study lol

Oh well. Addicts have a difficult life.

EDIT: Okay, I've seen it now. And it was pretty awesome. But 2 weeks till the next one, I'm not sure I can wait that long!

Anyways, back to history. 'Cause, the exam's tomorrow. And I don't remember anything, oops.

barush: (insomnia)
History whining again! Beware!  )
barush: (suicide)
Jesus fucking Christ, I'm fucking sick of history already. I'm at question 24 out of 28 but I guess I lost my sanity somewhere between questions 10 and 11, during the 100 years war. Really, I don't remember anything. And... they made me hate Middle East with passion, I can't remember what difference is between Fatah, Hamas or Hezbollah anymore, let alone what PLO means. Fucking wars, fucking terrorists. Really, why can't there be peace? 'Cause like that there'd be at least 50% of shit less to study. Ironically, the WWII is probably the only thing I really do remember. I spent my whole afternoon with communism, those lovely comrades Stalin, Kruschew, Gorbachev and a lot more. And guess what's next? Yup, Yugoslavia. I'm not gonna survive the next month, because when I'm just thinking about studying all this shit again for the oral exam I feel like running a bullet through my head. What a great idea to choose history for my finals, right? Right? And I haven't even started with Spanish yet.  

I need a coffee and House porn and a House epi. And then, then I'm gonna finish those 4 remaining questions and fucking forget all about history and hope I won't fuck it up too much on Wednesday.

Sorry if you get here, you can go back to whatever you've been doing before.

Oh and happy Easter! =) I'm obviously enjoying it.

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.  )

Well, the long-anticipated House epi was rather anti-climatic, hm. For me at least. That happens when you expect too much I guess.

Also, I'm not dead. Just didn't feel like whining in here, although I'd have a lot to whine about. But to try to justify my lack of updating, I'm trying to study for my written final exam from history, which is on the 15th April, and therefore I'm aiming to cut down on my online time. Those who have me added on msn probably know how well it's working *facepalm* I'm currently somewhere in the 1850s so there's a long way to go to the 2000s, including two world wars and so much other shit. I'd better stop now and go studyyy, meh.

Also, I got my period after just 14 days today and generally feel like shit. I hate doctors, so I hope nothing else happens *sigh*

barush: (loverman)
So tomorrow I have the oral part of the CAE exams. I've no idea how I did on the written one but I don't feel that good about it, so I don't really wanna fuck up the oral one now. I've read some of the 'useful phrases' such as 'I think it's essential to...' or 'I've never given it much thought but...', but I highly doubt I'll use any of them lol Now I just hope I won't be paired up with anyone too good =)

Also, remember me whining about the mock final exam from history? We got it back today and I have 2 (1 is the best, 5 the worst), which really surprised me. There was only one 1 and my score was the second best actually. It wasn't spectacular or anything (especially the essay, meh), but if I did like that on the real exam I'd be okay with it. Of course, there's still the oral part of the exam, but the written one makes like 60% of the final mark.

Oh well, other than that nothing too interesting has happened, I guess. Or it did, but I don't feel like rambling now, so maybe tomorrow =)

I'm writing a math test tomorrow and don't know anything *sigh* However, I've been slaving over WWII notes today and studied law so at least I can rationalize why I didn't study to maths.

Other than that I'm kinda sad for no apparent reason. Not depressed or anything, just sad. Some people are ignoring me and I've no idea why, school sucks (as usually)  and I'm starting to stress about the finals. I'm writing a final exam from history in less than a month and I haven't started to study properly yet.

On the other hand, I've found some new songs to listen to and a few pretty good House fics to read so at least something. Yeah, I don't really need much in life.

I guess I should go to bed, it's kinda late already. Night everyone.

barush: (dark genius nick)
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: (Default)

I've seen it like an hour ago and I'm gonna watch it again today I guess. It's like the writers started to read fan fiction or smt lol

Other than that, nothing new here.

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*

barush: (Suns sweat)
So the yesterday's mock finals from history were a total disaster. There were 40 multiple questions (a to e) and I had to guess most of them as I had no clue. The 'source work' was more or less okay, about USA and USSR relationship during 1940s, but the essay... meh. The topics were so terrible that I had to choose smt along the lines of  'USA are justified to use force to restore peace all over the world. Do you agree?'.  I had no clue what I was writing, just made some shit it up, but I vaguely remember I didn't agree probably. And the best part is that most of my classmates were like 'Oh that was so easy!' lol Whatever.

Today morning I sat another exams, but those were smt like uni entrance exams. Only, not really. I'm not gonna explain the whole difficult process of that but I think those could be compared the SATs maybe. Or at least the principle. However, the schools I sent my applications to don't require those tests, they have their own, so I don't actually need them for anything. But since I signed up in December already and payed for them I went there anyways. Also, it'd be interesting to see the results, how stupid I am in comparison with my peers lol 

Now i should probably make some notes to Spanish or history but I'm too lazy to do that so I'm gonna write or read = )

barush: (Default)
So what did I do during the weekend? Right, nothing. Again. Okay, so I did do a few homeworks and made some notes but I didn't study history at all, the only chance I had to really look at it. I can't believe myself. 

Anyways. I've almost 2 pages of the Che!fic already, the process of writing it is very slow but I haven't abandoned it yet, go me. Also, I'm thinking about entering a writing contest, the requirements are to write a story of max. 1500 words and the prompt is 'change'. I already have some vague idea but if anyone has some stroke of genius and wants to share - go for it =)

On another note, I'm planning to go to Berlin in summer with my friend so if there's anyone from Berlin or anyone's planning to go there, let me know =) I'd love to meet some LJ friends in rl =)

I guess I'll go to bed now, school tomorrow *sadface*

If there is one or more people on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

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.
