Holidays!

I'm back!

My holiday was fun! The weather was really warm & I got some nice stuff ^^ Cathy was really pissing me off by the end of it though. Oh, & I read a LOT. I finished Rebecca (which really, really pwns) before I even left Ireland, I read The Science of Discworld (which I thought would be boring in the science parts, but actually wasn't at all), The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold (really good) & Lord of the Flies (alright, I guess). One place we went to was this nifty pearl factory. You got to pick an oyster out of a tank, then they'd open it & you'd get the pearl, & you could have it set in a necklace or something. It was deadly. Everyone kept telling us that we're sisters. We don't even look alike. >_<

When I came home Mum had bought tons of stuff for my room! I got a new shade for the light, a beside lamp to match, a blanket & cushions to match my bed linen & tons of storage boxes. She got me magazines & a Terry's chocolate ornage too (yum).

Ireland lost to South Africa. ;_; At least we didn't get totally hammered though *coughenglandcough*

I'm glad to be home ^^

Summer hols!!

Today was a nice day. History was grand, & I found out I got 98% in my maths test ^^ Home Ec was so short! I think I did okay in that too. At lunch time we had a water fight & my hair got really wet >< And then we hear that Ms. Bracken wants to take a picture of the people who were in the play X_X So in the photo we all look a total disgrace XDD CSPE was okay too. Our bus was really late because Caitriona told Damien to come later (Go Caitriona!! XD) & so we were nearly the last to go home. Mrs. Murphy told me my Geography result- I got 100% o.o I don't know how, but w00t!!! Then we all went home on our bus, & had fun at Sinéad's house. I'm a bit tired now. I'm totally going to miss so many people during the summer.

R&B is okay

Today didn't start very well. I thought it was going to be a really bad day, then it wasn't really, I suppose. Well, okay. It was, -ish. I got a crappy English result. I know everyone is trying to make me feel better by saying it's not a bad result, but to me it's bad, & no one will just understand that. Ms. Bracken goes, "I thought you'd do better." & I was like "No..." & she said "Did you know?" & I was like "No. Just tell me what I got." & she told me. Yeah. TONS of people did better than me. Bye bye prize.

Mary thinks she's really smart all of a sudden. Becca said she was talking about her English result & saying she thought she would have done better. Good thing I wasn't there, I'd probably have punched her. Okay, no I wouldn't have. But I'd have really really wanted to. Before she was actually okay, but now she's gotten a very high opinion of herself. She thinks she's the best out of her group, I think, but Roisín is much smarter (& nicer too, actually).

Geography was grand. Mrs. Murphy made tons of mistakes on the paper. Sinéad & I would reach the same part, then we'd look at each other & be like "....><"

Then at break STACEY HAD NO ORANGE SMARTIES IN HER GIANT SMARTIES BAG. I knew it was going to be a bad day then. I said as much. I said to Becca & Marie "Oh yay. It's a bad day. I bet I didn't do very well in science either." Then we were talking to Mr. Daly & he said I got something in the 90s so, well, at least I got a good mark in one test.

Irish was alright too. The comprehension was evil, but it's not like anyone expected it to be anything else. French was okay, but very long. The comprehensions were very hard too, much more difficult than we'd ever done in class. I think I did alright though.

I hope we get the results to more of our tests tomorrow. I really want my Maths result.

It was so funny on the bus this morning XD Roses by Outkast was on, & Matt wanted the bus driver dude (it wasn't our usual driver) to turn it up, because you could barely hear it. So, Matt & Sarah were having a loud discussion about asking him to turn it up.

XDDCollapse )


Today I had Business, Science & Maths. In Business there was 5 questions, & we had to pick 4 to do. I left out the Club Account. It was okay, I guess. In Science it was 9 questions, answer 8 & I left out the one about air. It was alright too, Business was better though. Maths was grand, I knew how to do all the questions.

Stephen was saying on the bus today to Wayne that some person in our English class got 91% & she was reading out the test to their class & saying how good the language was & stuff. I reckon it was Brendan :/ I hope I got an A too, though. I probably didn't if the highest mark is 91%.

Geography tomorrow shouldn't be too bad. I have to make sure to do a really good sketch map so I get full marks in that, because I'll lose marks on theory.
French should be okay. Sinéad said their class haven't done the camping or food chapters properly, so we won't get anything on those.
Irish will be scareh, esp. the letters. I bet the comprehension will be really difficult too ><

Mum got my holiday books today! Only one I asked for wasn't there, Carpe Jugulum. I got The Wee Free Men & The Science of Discworld by Terry Pratchett, Lord of the Flies by William Golding & Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, which I've started.

Tests

I didn't sleep very well last night >< I had a sore throat & I was a bit worried about today. In PE this morning for the most part Sarah R., Sarah Ca., Becca, Samantha & I just kicked a rugby ball around. Mrs. Lacey got us to play tag rugby (which is pretty stupid) for a little while, but we just got bored & went outside & talked. Last PE class - w00t!

Then in Maths we just revised & Ms. Kiely went around to anyone who wanted help with any sums. In Geography it was the same, just not with sums. It was raining all day today, so break wasn't much fun. Then in Science we just revised. Mr. Daly told us that there's 8 questions on the paper, & we have to answer 7 (or maybe it was 9 questions & answer 8, I can't remember). In French we did the listening comprehension part of our test. It was fairly easy. Lunch time was boring because it was still raining. Mum gave me a Ferrero Rocher, & on the little sticker on top got a tiny piece of paper, wrote "Good luck" in tiny letters & stuck it on ^^ It was really nice, & I appreciated it. My hair went really frizzy from the rain x.x

Then we had our English test. It was alright. The first question was the MoV one, & I had to write about the most dramatic scene, so that was alright. I wrote just over a page & a half. We had to do a war poem for the second question, so I did Dulce Et Decorum Est & wrote about a page. For the functional writing we got a letter. It was easy, & then the ad for Media Studies was for showers o.o

Business tomorrow. The theory is okay, the account should be grand so long as I don't make a big mistake & then not know where I went wrong. Science should be okay. Need to go over the Earth & Solar System a little. Maths will be fine.

So I went to Marie's house today & three of us (Becca, Marie & I) went to Kilkenny. We went to Swalk & I bought tons of Diddl stuff ^^ I got a notebook, a pencil, a ruler, a pen, a rubber & a bookmark. It was really cheap too! I got some spikey earrings in this shop called Soul & then we went to see Troy. It was really cool. It was a bit boring up until the where Achilles started fighting Hector. Hector pwns. Well, pwned. Wow, Paris was the most irritating character. A total idiot. And then when he actually says something smart, no one listens. Marie got the RotK DVD for her brother & he was all hyper about getting it. It was funny XD

We had to go to mass x.x It was SOOO boring.

Mum said I'm not allowed on the net tomorrow because I have to study. For the whole day? Er, riiiight. It's not like I have the willpower to study ALL day.
