Studybreak is here!

Tuesday marked the very last day in my life of being a 2nd grader!
I survived the (supposedly) hardest year in college!!

While the 3rd graders had had theirs on Monday, we had a sports day on Tuesday and were parted into smaller teams. My team was going to have some sort of orienteering, floor hockey, and lastly, soft tennis. Sadly a lot of people had decided to skip the day and we ending up wasting so much time waiting for other teams to finish their activities before we could go on with our own.

Regarding my exams.... of course I was unlucky enough to be chosen for the oral math exam.
WHY MUST YOU DO THIS TO ME?!?! ヾ( ・`⌓´・)ノ゙
Oh! And of course it has to be two days after my birthday, meaning I can spend my birthday studying for the worst exam imaginable! 
Okay that might not be all true... having to take an exam in social studies / politics would be worse. I'm sure I'd get a black out and just sit there and droll for 24 minutes until the exam would be over. 

On a more positive note, I got my grades for both my main subject and the ones I'm ending this year.
(Note: a bad grade in an ending subject will be bad since you won't be able to change this and it will be forever stuck on your diploma. However, a bad grade on a main subject doesn't matter before 3rd grade). 

Of course my overly ambitious persona would love to get the best grade in all of my subjects but overall I'm satisfied with the ones I got for my ending subjects. I'm fine with the rest too but, like I said, they won't matter before next year. My lowest grade was a B in biology so I had hoped I'd have to take that exam but... darn oral math (¬¬ )
Since I will only have the math exams, I get to keep my grades in the other subjects and they will be on my diploma when I graduate next year. It was a big relief for me to see my grades since I haven't felt like I have done my best the past few days. I believe I could have done better in Classical studies but on the other hand I really did not deserve such a good grade in Social science so it outweighs itself ^o^

Now I'm off until mid-August or something but I won't be entirely free before my last exam. Here is what I will have be preparing for the next weeks:

(Finals won't count anything - they just like to see us suffer)

I have to turn in my paper for AT on 26/5 and I'm far from done...
If you won't hear from me a couple of days you know why ~

Exams and a big party

It's great, it's great!

For the longest time, actually ever since we started preparing for them, I have feared the exams... a LOT. Especially one of them. I'm talking to you, oral math 눈_눈

I know that, as a 2nd grader who chose drama over arts during my first year, I will have to attend at least 2 exams this year. Each class and student have different combinations of subjects so for me, my exams could be either Social Science, Biology, Greek Classical Studies, oral Math, or written Math. 

I have always been strongest in written subjects so you might have an idea which of these I'd like to take the most (hint hint.. written math). So yesterday all of our exams and yearly exams (these won't count) before May 28th were released and.... 

.... I GOT IT! My math group, consisting of 15 people, was chosen to take it! WOOOH! 
My friends Lærke and Helena and I have been hoping so bad for this one.. and we got it! 

Of course there is a chance that we will still also have to take oral math but it's the fact that we get to go to the exam we'd like to take the most, that we have to take. Aaahh... cross your fingers I will be spared for oral math (•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑

Today I'm home to work on the AT assignment I have complained (a bit) about earlier. Since I don't have chemistry (like the rest of my class) I had to write about a different subject that the teachers haven't found any material for, making it harder for me to write than the rest of my class. They have been given everything they need while I have to find my own sources before I can begin writing - -

Although I had devoted my day today to be working on it, I had a quick meeting with my teachers first (we all have to) and they were pulling me in a direction I really don't like. They moved the focus from one thing to another and now it's hard for me to see their point or to even get started.

Tomorrow I won't have to go to school either. It is a national holiday AND the day my twin siblings will be confirmed. HERE is a brief introduction to what a confirmation in Denmark is like.
I was confirmed in the same church by the same priest (whom I don't like) so for sure it will be interesting.


Tuesday will be my last real school day as we will have some sort of sports day Wednesday. Wednesday is also the day all of our exams from May 28th to June 25th will be announced (that day I will know if I have to take an exam in oral math. Oh please no).
After that my Study Break / Reading Break will begin and when I have taken my last exam, I will have completed 2nd year of the gymnasium (equal to American college in terms of difficulty level).

Somehow it worked out

I almost forgot what I wanted to blog about!  Argh!! (ᗒᗣᗕ)՞ 

I really really wanted to blog the day before the concert since I had NO idea how the heck to get there or... basically I had no idea what was going to happen and I was 99% ready to just cancel everything but in the end the whole thing magically worked out and I went! (WOOP WOOP!) 

Since it was a kind of travel I put the post about it in my travel/beauty blog. Do check it out if you haven't already ^o^ Everything happened over 2-3 days and I didn't want to split up the post... just informing you that it's a bit to the long side.

B.A.P Live on Earth 2014 Düsseldorf Attack!

During the trip I never really had time to sleep more than ½-1 hour and I think, adding up "all" the time I spent napping, I slept for around 7 hours out of those 60 hours I was out and about. I got home around 11.00 and at 16.00 my family picked me up to go to my cousin's confirmation. 
I haven't seen that part of my family for about 13 years and there was even a cousin whom I had never met. But that side of my family is great and I'm really happy I finally got to meet them again. We didn't get home before 02.00 - meaning I had been up for +70 hours and still only got a total of 7 hours sleep.

I honestly cannot remember last time I found my bed that comfortable. 
Cille arrived to the party in this
Some sort of homemade desert. It was amazing but I was too full to eat more than a few spoons :(
My confirmed cousin Cille and I ~
Top: Frederik (brother), Ken (cousin), Karsten (cousin), Morten (cousin), Mette (cousin), and the last person whose name I forgot. She was my cousins' cousin, not mine.
Bottom: Cecilie/Cille (cousin), Emma (sister), and me
Of course we couldn't stay still in the first picture so we had to take more (much more than these two)
And finally I got this picture from my aunt who appears to be a better photographer than my dad

Speaking of confirmation, my sister and brother will have theirs this Friday and I have run into a minor problem. My dress is black with a galaxy theme in blue and purple colours. Yesterday I went to the hairstylist and... well it doesn't exactly match
