Exams

Anyone out there who has to do 10 hour exams will currently know exactly how I feel.

I am currently doing my ICT exam and it is spread out over three weeks. This does mean that we can go home and try to figure stuff out but right now, that is not helping me.

I am half way through the exam and stuck on Forms as this is a Database exam.

I would not be as far as I am if we hadn’t been able to look stuff up between the hours in the IT room. Continue reading

Snatch (2000)

Ok, so I sat down to watch this film and knew nothing about it. Apart from the fact that Jason Statham is in it. I think my dad likes his acting as we seem to watch quite a few films with him in.

Anyway. It is a crime thriller. So basically a Lads film.

Plot (from IMDb):

Unscrupulous boxing promoters, violent bookmakers, a Russian gangster, incompetent amateur robbers, and supposedly Jewish jewelers fight to track down a priceless stolen diamond. Continue reading

What have I done?

Ok,

So I have just signed up to do this blog…

I have no idea what I am going to put on it or even how good it will be but there you go.

I hope that the ideas will just come to me as time passes and that my blog will grow and develop itself into something good.

If you’re reading this then I apologize if my blog is really bad. Please, feel sympathy for me and don’t judge me too much. (You may have found it by accident.)

I have never done this before but it will be an experience to learn from.

Any help in any way will be greatly appreciated.

Finger-crossed that this all goes well.

🙂
