Today I had my first exam

Last night I put my alarm at 5 30 am, and almost half dozen more reminders every 5 minutes so I would wake up and study further for my Introduction to Scientific Thinking exam.

I woke up with the first alarm, and then with the third one I went to the lower floor (my bedroom has two floors, it’s weird) and lied on a futon.

“Only 10 more minutes” I said to myself. At least an hour passed and I turned on my laptop. No new mails, or maybe just some spam from Russia (I hope the guy that’s sending me so much spam doesn’t get shot).

I finally woke up at 8 30, the sky was all grey and I just didn’t feel like getting up for studying. My sister was leaving for work, so I said goodbye and turned on my laptop again.

Yesterday I disabled my former blog at valenzine.com. Apparently by doing so I fucked up my dad’s blog, so I had to fix that before starting my day.

Later on I decided to start studying, but first listening to Xx by Firefight [download here, listen at the end of the post], but due to my obsessive nature, I had to get the chords to that song, or at least the lyrics. Although I had tried looking for the lyrics before (and failed miserably), I gave it one more try and ended in their MySpace page. adding them as friends to see if I can ask them personally for those two things. So yeah, basically I spent 30 minutes doing everything but studying.

Oh I needed some coffee. I always make myself some latte. It was much easier to prepare that glorious drink back home where I had the microwave oven and I would just put some instant coffee and milk heat it up, then added some sugar and it was party time for me and my coffee.

I just spent half hour looking for a good picture of a latte. Couldn’t find any.

So I had my coffee and started studying. I kept obsessing over that band, Firefight, so I downloaded the last I Voted for Kodos album. They broke up in 2007 and two of their former members are now in Firefight.

Finally, I sat down and started taking even more notes for the exam. The teacher allowed us to use our notes and the book for the test. It was a multiple choice kind of test. It was a pretty annoying exam.

The teacher had to ask us to correct some exercises and questions because they weren’t correctly written. Come on, that’s stupid! If I happen to fail or something, I have a good excuse now.

I didn’t have lunch or anything, at 1 pm I had to rush to the bus stop to catch that bus. It was still cloudy and a bit chilly so I wore a sweater for the first time in a long time. I got to my physics class and I finished taking notes. A guy with a weird accent (I’m thinking he may be from another country) approached me with some questions about the exam. Being that not many classmates share the Scientific Thinking class with me, I felt special!

Well, I was holding the book needed for the exam so it was pretty obvious, but anyway, it was cool. We shared some thoughts and then the three hours from physics were over.

The exam. It took me one of the two hours I had.

I left. I was going to visit my aunt but she didn’t reply my texts and I took the bus home. It was a weird way home.

I bought some new material for physics, I have my first exam next Tuesday.

I’ll get the mark from this one next Friday.
