Examination

(Bad day? You could say that…)

Seventeen days are remaining,
Six hours left then to go,
3 minutes added to that,
and then fourty seconds must flow.

Seventeen days are remaining,
Six hours left then and such,
three exams still here to pass now,
not that I’m counting, much.

Two of the tests are “assessments”,
About stuff that’s there and gone in,
and I can’t do sod all about them,
except sit here and hope that I win.

For exams are all just a game now,
Me v the person in charge,
To them it’s just pieces of paper,
But to me it’s my future at large.

One is the Final Exam Thing,
On course COH106,
Before which I have 8 days of nothing.,
And just proves the timetable’s a bitch.

So I sit down here at my computer,
Revising the odd re-design,
and awaiting the end of the world now,,
when disaster shall surely be mine.

ARGHHH! I HATE Exams. exams, exams, exams. hate, hate,…

ARGHHH!
I HATE Exams.

exams, exams, exams. hate, hate, hate.

Just finished the retake of the exam that I slept though all those weeks ago (literally, I slept and missed the thing. Doh) as well as a Hardware Software Config Multiple Choice Thing. I now have to read and work on a 53 page booklet before my exam tomorrow morning. Faskinating.

Incidenally, the thing I am taking the exam for tomorrow is VBA, the more advanced version of the old Visual Basic Script, in which an entire network was taken down in minutes. A script which cost the world (or, more specifically, the parts of it that open attachments without knowing who they are from) just over

Naturally, I did forget something important. Not least my razor, not most my Text Book, my mainly my front door keys. I arrived at the flat at 7:00pm with a security guard to let me into my room

*sigh*

More good news, The New Aquarionics background screws up in Netscape 4 (any version below 4.71, which is what I use)

*double-sigh*

Add to this my lost credit card (lost before I even left home) and the impending doom of 7 exams spread over three weeks, four of which are this week, and one of which I’ve done, as well as three projects (of which I have finished one) and, lest we forget, my my brother‘s birthday.

oh yes, And a partridge in a pear tree

So how did I spend sunday? Restocking the empty cupboards? Revising? Nope, writing the next part of my Eddings Fan Fiction, Worlds Apart, on my Dad’s Laptop.

I think I’m digging myself a hole here

treble-sigh

I’m Dithering.

Having planned to go yesterday for three weeks, I started packing this morning, at about 2am.
It’s now quarter past twelve, I’ve missed the train I intended to catch, and I’m aimlessly wandering, hoping I haven’t forgotten anything vitally important.

Like clothes, for example.

Three weeks back at Uni. Fun. Three weeks of exams and panic. Fun Squared. Although my Dad has lent me his Laptop for the duration, which makes life a lot more interesting. So i managed to use that excuse to play with the Laptop, installing C++ Compilers and other things I possibly won’t ever use. But D-Time is approching, and I must find some shoes before the train ride. Who knows? I may even pass.

Mmph! Microsoft DirectX SDK. 128 Megabytes! I am not downloading that!

Anyhue, I leave for University again tomorrow (sigh) so this may be the last update for a while. The front page is fixed, with a spiffy new background on the blue bit, Portal has been fixed and the links work properly now. Revision is going badly, and projects are going worse.

Happy May, BTW. Wow, 5 whole months of Aquarionics, and only one major redesign in that time 🙂
OK, back to Visual Basic Project now.

Ok, Webirc clients working and online. All announcements given or posted. If you havn’t got a URL for a chat client on this site, start reading a newsgroup that does. Hah.

In other news, I have precisly 7 days left before my exams. My, doesn’t time fly? It seems like only yesterday that I was yahooing for a whole two weeks of holidays.

I think I had better start revising 🙂
