Wow, another update! Within a month! Life really can be amazing. Anyhoo, onto the rant.
It's been quite a week, eventhough it hasn't even finished yet. I'm so terribly sucked up in school, it can't be healthy. I've basically been studying non-stop all week, and I'm still afraid it's not going to be enough. Final exams are next week...
Got a huge disappointment on Tuesday. I got back the essay from Islam I worked so hard on and I got a 5,5. I honestly hadn't seen that one coming. Worst part is, the professor was handing out the essays to the people that sat on the outer sides of the rows, which I wasn't, so mine passed a whole bunch of other people before reaching me. And a few of them were actually laughing out loud looking at my grade! How rude is that?! I was so pissed. It was mainly this girl though that hasn't seemed to like me from the beginning of the course, I've no idea why, but it's one of those girls who think they're all that. Funny, you'd think people would be over those highschool attitudes once reaching university. But unfortunately I'm learning that growing up doesn't necessarily mean maturing.
Anyway, after that I got a bit down-hearted, to say the least. Convincing myself I'm too stupid to go to university, that I can't think on an academical level, and so on, you know the drill. Which was a really bad timing, because the very next day I had to give a presentation for my other course, Guerra Civil. So whereas normally I'm really not that nervous about giving presentations, now I got totally insecure about the contents of it, my Spanish pronunciation, and I just felt like a complete idiot. Fortunately, the girls I had to do the presentation with are my best friends, and they were just as nervous as I was, so we had big fun doing fake yoga and meditation before class! :') Luckily, I got to go first, after which I did have to wait an awful while 'till the end of class before we received our note. It was worth it though, because we got a 9! That must be about the highest grade I've ever gotten since going to university, so, obviously, I was thrilled. As were my friends of course. My teacher, Elena, literally said a professor could wish for nothing more. She actually got a bit teary-eyed talking about how she loves our class and how she feels a special bond with us (she's such a sweety). I'm really glad to have her guiding me with my bachelor's thesis, she really is great.
So, bottom line: I shouldn't be so easily daunted. Sometimes life (or professors) sucks, sometimes it (or they) doesn't, what are you gonna do about it but do your best? I already knew that though. Just kinda forgot about it... ;)

I think I'm taking the night off tonight. There's just a limit as to how much a brain can absorb. I also have a movie lying around I have to see for Guerra Civil before Monday, so I'm gonna watch that, as a kind of responsible relaxation...

ik hoop dat het zo gaatCollapse )
