Hey guys, it’s been a while so I have plenty to blog about. Ok so I’ve just got home from my tennis tournament so can barely walk, but more on that later.
THE EXAMS ARE FINISHED. Thank f**k for that. To be fair they didn’t go too badly, business studies went better than expected, general studies was as per usual a piss take so just wrote about whatever random crap came into my head at that particular moment in time. Biology however was a different story altogether. I’m sure a lot of you have heard about the ‘Shewgate scandal’ thing and I for one am not at all happy. Basically the majority of the questions were impossible to answer, not impossible in the sense that they were too hard, I mean impossible in the sense that they were literally IMPOSSIBLE to answer. Apart from the last 3 questions, all of the content was on stuff that we either hadn’t been taught, weren’t in the syllabus or about stuff that the official AQA textbook had specifically told us NOT to learn as we wouldn’t need to use it in the exam. Ok so there is a big Facebook group about it with nearly 15,000 members (good effort), there is a Government petition, teachers have written letters to AQA, but what do I think will happen? Absolutely nothing. To be honest the best that will come of this is that the examiners will lower the grade boundaries when marking out papers and I heard a rumour that we may be given free retakes in the summer.
RANTING ASIDE, this weekend has been very good (so far.) We were planning on going bowling on Saturday, then wandering around Stevenage for a bit while being able meet Simone’s new boyfriend, but this didn’t happen unfortunately, but looks all set to go ahead next weekend. Although this has turned out to be a blessing in disguise for me as it gave me the chance to get some last minute tennis practice in before todays tournament, which was definitely worth it.
OK so my tennis tournament went very well, in short I WON :D. Basically there was about 16 of us and we were all split up into a number of groups, with each group containing 3 player. So in the first match I came up against a guy about my age, during the initial warm up he looked a good player and had the weapons to cause me some problems. But in the end I was too strong for him and won the match pretty comfortably :). So then I had about a half an hour break before my final match that would decide the winner of the group. This time my opponent was older than me so it looked like it could be a tricky match. But luckily for me I was playing the best tennis I have ever played and beat him in straight sets to win my 3rd tournament :D So yeah very happy right now.
The only thing that can ruin my weekend now is if Arsenal beat Chelsea, which starts in about 45 minutes, so if the result goes our way this has to have been one of the best weekends EVAR. I’m especially happy about the way tennis went though. It’s been difficult for me recently as I have struggled with form over the last few months, and 2009 was a very bad year for me tennis wise after I had a great 207/2008. But now I’m playing regularly again and everything has come together finally so I’m better than I have ever been.
Anyway, so there is one week left before half term, it really can’t come around quick enough because I just desperately need a break from school. Also really want to go out with one night soon, need to chill and have a good time, but I don’t really have anyone to go out to bars with yet :S. Never mind, it will be worth the wait.
Thanks for reading guy, PLEASE comment and I will blog again soon.
