Half Term, huzzah!

Sun Apr 9, 2006, 2:15 PM
Chensterrain's Journal!!!

...*falls over and dies from the amount of work she has to do*

AAAGH. Seriously. How're we supposed to RELAX over the holidays if we get more work than we would at school???? I have a Russian literature essay, a Russian oral about opt-out organ donation to prepare, French coursework on the national health system, a re-write of the previous piece of badly-done French coursework, that Cinderella commission (not complaining - I need moneys! XD), two mock IT exams to revise for on the first week back, ARGH ARGH ARGH.

Still, not at school. XD I MUST complete Baten Kaitos over these two weeks, or I never will. I also have to draw that Tales of the Abyss pic I was thinking about, before I forget what Luke Fone Fabre looks like. And, uh, the million-and-one pics of him I have stored on my hard-drive spontaneously delete themselves. Or something. >_>

In happier news, check out the song, book and movie in the journal header! I actually read, watched a film and listened to music all in one week. Whoa. Eldest... isn't actually all that great. It's an okay book and all, though you do kinda wish the entire way through that Paolini used some kind of initiative, and didn't just rape Lord of the Rings for all it's worth. Tall, skinny, pretty, super-magical elves who live in seclusion, have long lifespans and few children? Check. Short, bearded dwarves, who forge weapons and live in tunnels, and hate elves? Check. Idiotic, smelly, teenaged hero who tends to do retarded things once every few minutes, smells, and eventually finds out who his real father was? Ch- ...ah, wait, that's Star Wars. Never mind. XD Still, it's not a bad book, even if the overly-archaic dialogue gets on your nerves after the first several seconds.

No Tomorrow rocks, but I'm sure everyone's heard it already. I'm always the last to know... (I need to listen to the radio more... but besides Galaxy 105 in the mornings, there's nowt decent!)

And lastly, go see The Inside Man. Tis good. Very good, in fact, even if it does contain the worst pair of cops EVER. No, really. Shouting 'DID YOU DO IT???' at someone isn't exactly a great way of solving a crime (...okay, they never actually did that. But they might as well have). The ending is fairly abrupt, though. >_>

:XD: DID YOU DO IT?
You only get half term? I have about 2 weeks for easter hols, but I got a joke of a holiday in terms of time off for christmas, so it probably works out about even

It's nice to have time on your hands, even if it is unpleasantly full of work >.>;
A-levels are approaching and it is evil-I am probably not doing half as much work as I probably should-but a months study leave should make up the difference for taking it a little easier than perhaps I should now

I just need to finish my half finished history course work some time

Nice to be able to read and watch stuff freely-I havn't heard that song, or if I have, I didn't realise it-I don't listen to the radio at all-iPod sort of eliminates the need XD
Also want to see the Inside Man some time-had loads of people telling me it's great

History coursework? *shudder* I don't take history, but I've heard how bad the coursework is! O_o I feel for ya! But yep, you should definitely watch The Inside Man - it's either that or Ice Age 2... (though I admit, I was prepared to see that... XD)

I NEED AN MP3 PLAYER TOO >_>

It's not too bad, it's just the fact that it requires a hell of a lot of work, since you have to do it on 'a controvertial area of history that you're not currently being taught about'
I'm doing something on Julius Caesar since I already know a bunch of crap about him from Classics class and I've gotten about 1000 words out of 3000 in quite early and just not been able to force myself to go back and finish it-it probably won't be great anyway, history is the worst of my 3 subjects for me ^^;

:XD: Is Ice Age 2 any good? I saw about 10 minutes of the first one and turned it off, but someone keeps telling me the second one is quite funny

Ah, I haven't actually seen it (or the first one, actually, bar about 10 minutes of the ending...) It actually looks fairly decent, though! XD
