None of you sent me Red Cross parcels.
Clearly instead of anything else my aim is now to post MONTHLY. MONTHLY I ASK YOU?! I can't even count that in days!! I have a reason, but not an excuse; exams. In the past week and two days I've had five GCSE exams, y'know, the big, scary ones where you're sat down and you get penalised for turning around? Ohhhh yeahhh. But this really isn't an excuse because, although I have been working really rather hard for my grades, my friend Mawhinney has effortlessly managed to keep his (bigger, more important...) website running Emily, and I haven't done anything No for it onus church a long time...so after I've finished grovelling, I'll be sure to write a new review on. And I found yesterday. Hmmmmmm!!! So, let me break it down for you...last Thursday marked the start of this period of hell, kicking off with RE. As we know, RE is a very black and white subject...to get the grades, just renounce your sins and worship Christ Jesus. So, that was fine. No surprises, vey predictable, everything I'd studied for. What I didn't bank on, however, was my hand inexplicably turning to lead halfway through the exam, until I managed to twitch it back into this world, like Uma Thurman in the first Kill Bill (OOOOHHHH, LITTLE TARANTINO REFERENCE SLIPPED RIGHT IN THERE). Friday was French Oral, in which I forgot how to speak, French or otherwise, but in the end that was fine too. Monday of this week was my second Biology exam, which I had to spend all weekend preparing for, as my far rarely beloved teacher had neglected to mention that he forgot to teach us HALF THE COURSE. Tuesday was English, and again with the lead-handedness, and Thursday was Chemistry! (one word...hrrrngghhh...) And to top it off, I've still got Physics remaining, as well as a week of MOCK EXAMS THAT THE SCHOOL DEIGNED FIT TO WASTE OUR PRECIOUS COURSEWORK TIME WITH, TO 'PREPARE US FOR NEXT YEAR'. I DON'T NEED PREPARATION, YOU SONOFABITCH, I'VE BEEN TO 'NAAM, I'VE SEEN IT AND IT AIN'T PRETTY, SWEETHEART. But anyway, I finally took yesterday off as I've had a bit of a cold all week, that just clung. On. Mercilessly. And that was really nice. I did send out a twitter appeal though, asking for red cross parcels, and this is where my apologies stop, because you cold, soulless people callously ignored me! How very dare you! So, until I can next find the time or the inclination, or a potent combination thereof, I'll leave you with a plea of patience and understanding, as I try and prioritise my world. LLLLLLLLLLOOOOOVEEEEEEE YOOUUUUUUUUU!!!!
