Friday I saw Les Mis in Oslo! Some great singers, and all in all, I think this is the best Norwegian production since Trondheim, though Bergen had better barricade scenes and Lillestrøm seemed to work somewhat better as a production.

It opened in February, but this was my first trip. Due to being busy with school, I kind of forgot about it, and waited ridiculously long before ordering my tickets. The whole family have tickets for the performance on Wednesday, as that was the first date available that fit our schedules. Friday we were going to Oslo anyway, to look at a car (we did buy it, and my father has listed me as co-owner! Oh dear, I'm growing up too fast), and I decided to call the ticket office, even though the website claimed all tickets were sold. I got the last seat in the house, first row in the left section of the balcony. I had to lean forward to see what happened on the far left of the stage, but it was a quite good seat. I'll post my review sometime later this week, after seeing it again.

I survived mock exam week, and I'm very pleased with myself. I spent all of last weekend reading my maths textbook (while sunbathing, I might add. We've had some lovely weather), and while I expect plenty of mistakes in part 1, my teacher said I had done very well in part 2. I won't get my grade until Friday, but since it will not matter (I'm taking an easier course next year, only 3 lessons a week) I'm not overly worried. I just got back my English, and all Irene had to say was "Stupendous!". I whooped when I got my grade, it was a 6! Anyone surprised when I say I thought it had gone rather badly?;) The theme was personal values, and the task I chose was to write about which personal values I thought was important within an occupation of my choice. I chose the occupation of a lawyer, which in hindsight I realize could have ended badly, due to the terminology. I spent a paragraph explaining words like lawyer, solicitor, barrister, attorney, notary, advocate and legal counsel and discussing the differences between them, plus dropping words like prosecution and verdict on numerous occasions.

I also know what electives I'll get next year; I wanted International English, German I, a subject where we learn about law which I can't translate the name of and History & Philosophy. I got into everything but German, there won't be enough students to have a proper class. I did not really expect them to start one, so I'm very pleased:) I think I'll borrow a "teach-yourself-German" book from the library if I ever get the time.
