Oh, dear god...
Oficially, classes ended two weeks ago for 9th graders. We were on vacation. But even on holiday, school comes back to haunt us and plague us. And I am not overdoing it.
Today was the day when every 9th grader in the country was in a room, at the exact same time, with an exam in front of them, exactly the same for everyone in the country. Really, talk about paranoic people. I finished the exam thirty minutes earlier and they didn't let me out. And we weren't allowed to have our bags with us, we could only have our ID card and a pen on the table.
It was Portuguese today - quite easy if I do say so myself. Well, easier than our regular tests, our teacher is pretty severe with us. Too severe, actually, on the last test There were 5 positives on 24 students.
Well, it started pretty badly. I couldn't sleep, so I was cranky and my eyes hurt and I was practically falling asleep in the car. I got there at 8:30 a.m. because they said to be there 30 minutes earlier. I thought it was at 9:00. It was at 11:30. Really, talk about bad luck.
It was 11 and my stomach hurt, I didn't eat well, I was sleepy and I was nervous. I was one step from running to the bathroom and let it all out. And I would too, if they letted me in. They kept us outside, and that made me even more nervous. And then, we got in - it was worse.
I don't know how I managed to avoid a heart attack, but I did. I got in, did the exam, slept a bit and got out. Yes, my dear friends, all that nervous stuff was in vain, and I got home safe and sound.
I bought a vegetarian meal, ate it (tofu and paste, you should try it!) even though I hate vegetables. I love vegetarian food, I just don't like veggies.
And I slept. Really, really slept. from three p.m. until seven, When I woke up to eat fruit. Then I ate dinner and studied and now I'm here. Yes, I finally am religious, for today I learned the meaning of hell. And dear ladies and entlemans, it is not over. I have the enxt day to study all that I learned in math during all my life and repeat this procedure friday - for the national math exam.
Firtunently for me, I can sfford to have a low grade on math - I really don't enjoy it that much. I will have above 50%, but I dont have too. I'm already going to the 10th grade.
And a new life is about to start, for this year I have finished junior high and am going to enter highschool - a new life is ahead of me.
I was first going to arts, but my mom doesn't let me so I'll go to the next big thing (if not THE best thing): I'm going to do literature. I don't know how it is in America, Bur in Portugal we choose an area (science, economy, art, literature and humanities (lawyers, history, social workers, everything else)) on highschool and then We go to college and get a major in that area.
I want to write a book. A goos one, that people will like to read and enjoy it to it's maximum. A book you can't stop reading. A book who will leave you wanting more. A BIG book. Those are the best.
I don't know If I'll stay in the same school, But I rather not. I know I have friends here, But I want to start over. So I'll be searching for another school, hopefully closer to my home. I mean, The only way between school and home now is car and bus, and the bus takes one hour, maybe more.And I highly doubt that I'm driving to school, everybosy is at work or college and I don't have a driver's license. I mean, I'm fourteen years old.
Oh well, I have written enough. No I shall relax and read, for tomorrow, I shall cram till I bleed.
And now, I bid thee farewell.
P.S. - Remember when I said that today I'm relaxing? Not working, still cranky.
