HI PEOPLE!

I've not been online for a few resons;

For starters; exams, exams, exams! They are so pointless, and yet we are forced to do them! Luckily I've only got 2 more (RE and Physics), but I seem to be failing really badly at physics! I used to be getting 44% on the mock tests, then I went to a 1 to 1 tutor session with my teacher, and now I've gone down to 4%, dropped a grade, and only scraped in as a D by ONE MARK! Not only that, but I've got people everywhere treating these exams like an all-or-nothing event! Collectivel, if teachers aren't being nice and saying 'don't worry, no pressure, there are resits' (I've only found 2 of these people), then every person I come across is implying that 'if I don't get above a B in all my exams, my life is ruined!' I've also got people near-threatening to dis-own me if I don't get into sixth form at my school. Exams in general have also made me go really tired, panicky, and stopped me from eating properly since I'm worrying so much! Thing is, I can't rant to anyone either out of guilt, fear of being shouted at, or because someone'll be horrible and have an 'I've got it worse than you' contest with me! I know I've not got it as bad as some people (I know someone in year 11 who had 22 exams!), but this is my first year, whereas they've probably had experiance! (I vented to H a little about how stressed I was, and a year 13 snob went past me and showed me up! How nice of her~ ) I also konw that doing these exams and people pressuring me to revise is for my benefit and for the best, but people don't have to be so horrible about it!

General volume of work: Not just revising for 7 exams; the 15 pages of sketchbook, A2 final piece, evaluation and sheet of coursework also contributed quie alot to my workload! I spent most of Thursday and Friday doing my sketchbook work, and didn't even start to do my coursework until 10 at night on sunday! I was also refused a note asking for one more day to complete it, so that didn't help! One thing that's really annoyed me throughout the whole term is how the teachers pile homework onto us, knowing that it's the xam period and we'll be revising, and then expect us to complete everything for htem while passing all our exams! They all seem to ahve it in their heads that THEIR subject should come above all else! Well, I can't write notes, do coursework, paint, revise, sing and play the piano at the same time; it's just not possible! And yet that's what all our teachers are expecting us to do; and it's not fair!

The other thing (which I am really not allowed to go into detail on here) is friendship troubles. With study leave, it meant that Niko has left, so I've been kind of lonely for a while now. I feel like I'm either drifting from my other friend, or just generally pissing everyone off by my mere presence! There was another quite major event that happened on Saturday regarding Facebook and something that was posted on there that really upset me. No way am I going into details about it, because I don't want to get them back, and not so publically. But basically, since Saturday, I've been avoiding FB, dA, and anywhere else my friends could find me, because I didn't want to talk to anyone. I'd been drawing, but I wasn't uploading, because it was a picture that got me into this mess to beign with! Only today am I actually getting back into uploading stuff and going online on FB; it's been awful! I didn't want to talk to anyone about it either, because my friends know who I mean, and they'd hate me for bad-mouthing them. I saw them since they upset me, and they don't seem to either know what they did, or don't want to acknowledge what they did. I'm more than happy for it all to be forgiven and forgotten, but it doesn't look like I'll be getting an apology anytime soon...

So, yeah; that's why I've not been online! After my last exams on Thursday and Friday, I'll start drawing and uploading more, since all those crappy exams will be gone! :D I've got a big list of people to draw, so I'll be burning through those, drawing a couple more comics (if people like them) and probably drawing alot more of Hamja! (because she's adorable, and I don't know why I've been draw her so much lately! But Pugz asked me to carry on the Hamja comic, so I've got at least 1 more page to do! :heart: )

Also, I have some news about a certain 3DS game that I've got my eye on~! They've changed Luigi's mansion 2 to 'Luigi's Mansion; Dark Moon' and they've got a new E3 trailer (which is here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=sm_mwN… ). I ahve to say, I'm very excited for this game; because the beginning genuinely scared me, which is totally what this game is meant to do! It's doing it's job right! The graphics have also improved since 2001, as you can actually see the fear in Luigi's face; it's BRILLIANT! :D If anyone has a date for this game, I will love you! I want this game SO BADLY! :heart:

I'm going to leave it at this now! Expect to see more drawings, and I'm sorry for the rant!

Peace Out and Ciao~ x :heart:

P.s. Please acknowledge this one, because few people on here seem to give a damn about it! I spent all my spare time on this, so it's not ncie when no one likes it.... Komeiji Maidens by lillilotus

yeah, I know thy're not; but the adults around me seem to think it is! However, everyone was panicking about the ICT exam, when it was actually awesome (it was pretty much all on video games),so it's proof that they are slightly better than expected! :XD:

It was awesome seeing you guys the other week (pfft; I was 'francing' up the bus! X3 ) And thank you! *hugs*

Unit things? Haha; that's a new one! I guess they have changed it; I know that most exams for the younger people are now linear, but that's the extent of what I know! :XD:

Yus! Down with exams; up with art! :XD:

Sweetie, if you need to send me a HUGE rant on FB, I will read it.

I don't remember exams and such being so stressful when I was in high school (but it's been almost ten years since I did my GCSE's xD); but take it all one day at a time, don't do some of your homework (lol, bad advice FTW. I mean like..the least important ones) and you'll be fine.

fuu~ I'd feel bad if I did that~ TT-TT

And no; th government now think that the exams are getting easier (it's actually just the teachers knowing how to teach us better for the exams), so they've raised the boundaries to get good marks (to get an A* in history and RE now, you need 54/60) And some teachers in the top sets name and shame anyone who doesn't get an A* (or so I hear) yeah, the joys of a grammar school ^^; (I'm ranting again; sorry about that) and yeah; I've only got a little bit of homework now after my exams, so that's good! ^_^

Kinda funny how when people fail, the youth are deemed stupid; but when the majority pass with flying colours the exams are too easy.

I have Government T.T

yeah, seems to be the case at the moment; so they've made the science coursework near impossible! TT-TT

You HAVE government, do you~? :XD: ( I know what you mean; I hate them too!)
