I hope you find the time to visit your cousin either way! I might have told you before about throwing a (late) birthday party together with a friend who turned 18 three days before I did, well, it’s all happening tomorrow! :) I’m really excited for it. It’ll be at my house. We got everything done, but since I have to work tomorrow too, we’ll have a stressful day. I’m not sure if I find time to be on tumblr. I hope it’s going to be a good party! I’ll tell you everything about it on Sunday. :) I’ve got some essays due very soon I still need to start working on, which is going to be stressful as well. I hope you’re going to have a good weekend!
I know it isn’t. I thought I heard someone saying before that they are doing that in America and England more often, that students are required to take Spanish. But I think it’ll take some time before it really gets done, if they can get it done in the first place. I think it’s so sweet that even if it’s 1:30 am you still don’t forget to message me, I couldn’t wish for a better daily anon! I hope your day wasn’t too tiring, since you had so little sleep. I got some more grades now, 67/100 for physics and 78/100 for chemistry. I’m so glad with it, after biology and maths! Today is a national holiday in the Netherlands with a story that’s a bit similar to the story of Santa Claus, so kids all over the country got presents today. Since we stopped believing this story (it’s just like finding out Santa Claus doesn’t exist, it’s terrible haha) we stopped celebrating it and we get our presents with Christmas now. Still, my mother got us some little presents. I got some dictionaries I need for my finals and some lights for my bike since they are broken. Also our grandmother gets us money on this day every year, so I locked that away so I can use it in the summer for the holiday I’m going to have with my friends. :)
Well I just answered the (other???) anon about what books I like and haven’t got yet but I’d love some CDs. I want Pure Heroine by Lorde, I Love You by The Neighbourhood and oh my god I want AM by the Arctic Monkeys so bad. I think that’s about it! Cute socks would be nice too. :)
Favourite books are harry potter of course. I have them all in both Dutch and English hahaha I’m insane but um
John Green’s Abundance of Katherines is a book I still want to make my collection complete so he can rip my heart to pieces once again. And I still want to have the hunger games trilogy in English. Man I have so many books on my selves I still want to read and haven’t read yet I just don’t ever have time for it ughhh
I’m so glad I’m done with all of my tests!! It’s such a relief. I’m really curious about my other grades. I guess your right, but all people in the Netherlands get French and German, both for at least two or three years, when they’re in high school. So it’s not really that bad here yet. Still, I’ve had both languages for three years and I literally can’t even make a full French sentence. German is a little less complicated because I live so close to it (and the language itself is more like Dutch) but I still suck at it. I have no idea how I did in physics. Good luck with your test! And yes, I’m going to try to make them up. It’s not that bad though. (:
Really? We don’t get them that often. And if we have to write essays, we always have to write them at home. Why do you think English becoming universal is a bad thing? I think it’s important that we can communicate with each other all over the world. I’m glad English has become that language, because I suck at other languages other than English or Dutch. I’ve had German and French before, and I was lucky enough to pass both subjects. Good luck on your Spanish! I had chemistry today, which went good. My last test is tomorrow, which is physics. I’m worried if I’m going to do alright because I haven’t really studied for it. All my motivation has gone. I know my biology and maths grades now, which are 51/100 and 50/100. It’s not that bad, but I’m not happy with it. It should have been a 60/100. :/ Oh well, it’s going to be okay in the end. :)
Yeah we have. It’s a big essay, about 600 words. You don’t know what the real assignment it going to be, you only know like the concept so we can find information about our subject. We get two weeks off as well. I really need some holidays. Yes it’s really exciting! And oh my god you made me blush there hahaha :) Thank you so much! And yes that is weird indeed. Like I can’t even imagine how many things I wouldn’t be able to do or would’ve been so much more difficult if I didn’t speak English (properly). The essay went well by the way. Tomorrow’s test is chemistry. I hope I’ll do well. :)
I know the feeling. I’ve done nothing today. I had all day to study, but I’ve actually been productive for like half an hour. I’ve got my Dutch test tomorrow. We have to write an essay in class (we get four hours to get it done). It’s going to be painful for my hand, I guess. It’s crazy right. I just can’t get my head wrapped around the fact time just flies by like that. My winter break starts on Saturday the 21st. Have I told you yet? A girl I met on tumblr three years ago is coming over to me for Christmas. She lives in Denmark and we’ve really became close over the last couple of years. We skype literally every day. I’ve never met her in real life so it’s going to be really exciting! She’s arriving on the 22nd and leaving on the 27th. I still can’t believe I’m actually meeting her!
About the school I went to see yesterday, it’s not called an university in the Netherlands, but it’s similar to the universities in America. I loved it there! I’m getting really excited about next year. I just love to go somewhere new, finally closing the chapter that’s called ‘high school’. I might have mentioned before that I want to become a teacher. I’m not quite sure whether I’ll become a biology teacher or an English teacher yet, but I’m going to see the school for some couple of times again. I’ll be following classes on those days, so I can see what it’s like. :)
I know the feeling. I’m glad you liked Catching Fire! And I’m glad you had a good dinner. :) My biology test went alright, my maths test was a little disaster. I hope my grades turn out okay though. Tomorrow I’m going to see a school which I may attend next year. It’ll be interesting. I don’t really have a lot to tell because nothing’s really happening in my life right now hahaha. I hope you’re doing fine! :)
Cool! I’d love to see it. My test today went alright! I’ve got two tests for tomorrow, biology and maths. I’d say I’ll be glad when I’ve got my weekend but I’ll be only more studying then. I’m glad when it’s Wednesday afternoon and it’s all over! Two and a half days is much! I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving dinner either way. I wish I could read some Harry Potter, I haven’t read one of the book since summer and I miss it. :(
