End of college year, and other things

Post length: 722 words, just over 3 minutes.

I did have other things to say, just little things, but I forgot them…hmm, lets try…

Well, first off – I had my last lesson of this year on Tuesday. So I have officially finished college for the year. It seems strange that this first year is over, it still doesn’t feel like a year, it doesn’t feel anywhere near long enough, and they expect me to have done well in the exams after what seems like only a few months? Well, it’s gone, and when I get back I will be heading into the work for the A2 levels (actually, in the last 3 weeks we have started on that, but not done much really, most notable I suppose is the maths where we have got though the whole of the first sort of topic already). So, that will be fun, but I also think that I will have to resit some of the modules in January, we will see. I was talking to Kirsty on the bus on Thursday after a conference I went to (about UCAS forms, and the personal statement part. It wasn’t exactly great fun, but it was useful, and I think should help. The best bit was getting to read the example forms from other people, always a good laugh) – she has moved from our college to one in Huddersfield, and she was saying that she wasn’t happy at all about some of her exams, and I know that there was a bit of messing about with IT, so she was saying she thinks she will have to resit that at least. So that is college, just one other thing I have to comment on is the grass on the lawns at the front of college – when the grass isn’t growing fast they come along and cut it almost every-other day, but as soon as the weather is nice for growing grass, they leave it, so that when I try to cut across it to speed my way to college, I have to push though knee length grass…*sigh*

Talking about grass, that is basically all I did today – cut grass. I went to bed late last night (umm about 2 this morning actually), and then woke up at about 12 today (well, after getting up at 4.30 because I was so hot and thirsty). I had a bath, then went to cut the top lawn. That was quite short, so didn’t take too long, and I thought, seeing as I was on a roll, I would cut the rest, and so I did. It took a little longer and, as you would expect, the sun came out, meaning that it was far to hot to be doing that, but it only did that when I was half way though. Still got it done.

Tomorrow we are going to start our rehearsals for Theatre Festival – we are taking a performance for the first time this year. Got a letter today about it, and apparently we can’t get as many places in huts as we were wanting, but we have some (and who gets them will be chosen randomly in the group…though I think that if anyone in our group gets a room then we will all be in it just because it will be fun – last year we all had rooms but only ended up using one (people on the floor, sharing beds, etc., see a previous entry, wow, almost a year ago, lol)…so I think it will end up that way. This year we will be sharing the hut with some Americans…how sorry for them I feel…what sort of impression of the English will they get from staying with us? I worry for them really, them coming to the UK, and to a Theatre Festival must give them a very strange view of the country…and we just wont help. We have been told we have to be nice to them, so we will do our best for Anglo-American relations, but its going to be tricky, hehe. Hmm, well, whatever, I think its going to be great fun, it has been for the last two years so I’m looking forward to it.

Now I think I need to sleep, so I will go read other people’s diaries, then sleep 🙂
