(I just posted two Les Mis reviews, if you haven't seen them yet)
The last two weeks have been a horror, I've never in my life been this busy. We've had a test/presentation/assignment/something-
to-prepare-for every single day! Luckily, it's over now, only my English presentation on Perth (Australia) left. I'm mostly finished with it, but I have not seen my partner's work yet, and I think we have to practice a lot. His oral English is pretty bad, I discovered a couple of days ago, while his written English appears to be decent enough. Some coaching may become necessary.
I've pretty much ensured top marks in three of my finishing subjects (English, Geography and Science), though I think I may have messed up in Social Science. I'm very uncertain about my last test, but on the other hand, Viola does not grade very strictly, so it's a possibility. Four 6's out of four finishing subjects would be amazing, but I can hardly complain about three either:)
Mum and dad visited France, so I was home alone last week. It was great, being left in peace with my work, but kind of boring as well. Also, this meant I did not get to see part 1 of the Che Guevara movie, since it only played five evenings at my local cinema. Mum would freak if I tried to ride my bike home, alone, at 23.30 in the evening, understandably enough, and my grandmother (our closest neighbour) would be bound to notice (and report it), so I refrained. I also didn't bother to celebrate our National Day (17th of May) much, I only barbecued at Camilla's house with some friends. I had to leave at 20.30 though, to finish up my preparations for a sort of mock oral exam I had the 18th. My parents arrived home the same day, mum red as a lobster:) They'd bought me the Faubourg 36 soundtrack (I still adore that movie. I saw it twice at the cinema in France last year, and I've watched my DVD with French subtitles four times. I even managed to convince my teacher to watch it in class;)), a French copy of Pride and Prejudice and, to my great surprise, a shirt which actually fits!( Quite a lot of Star Trek... )
Four of my friends and I are going to Göteborg/Gothenburg the 24/25th June! We'll take the train early Wednesday morning, spend the day at Liseberg (best amusement park there is reasonably close to home), stay the night at the Norwegian Church Abroad/Seamen's Church
, shop and visit Universum before going home. We're hoping we'll be able to buy family tickets for Universum, since Nita will be 18, I'll be 17, and Thea (her birthday's the 28th), Tina and Natascha will be 16. Seems like those over 17 goes as adults there. It'll be great fun, I hope!
