Well, it probably tells you everything that I finished the three-hour test in an hour and a half, lol. XD
Also known as "The details, which are not at all necessary, but when have I ever been able to shut up?" XD
First of all, I have not seen that side of six-thirty in the morning since I was in high school. GUH, no human being should have to be awake that early. XD I had a couple 8 AM finals last year, but my dorm was significantly closer to the places they were being held, so I never got up before 7. XD 6:25 TODAY WHAT THE HELL IS THIS IT WAS DARK. XD
Anyway... no idea how I used to get up at 6 every damn day for four years; I could never in a million years do that now. :P I have adjusted my time schedule to include later night/mornings, and actual morning doesn't start until eight at the absolute earliest. XD
So, the actual FRENCH. XD
The thing that's usually the problem/solution/destruction/DOOM about my French is that, at this point, it's largely instinctive. The good thing is that I don't really think about it too hard, and the bad thing is that... well, I second-guess myself, which is useful when I'm wrong and detrimental when I was going to be right. XD
Anyway, I probably effed up on the grammar like crazy -- subjunctive? THAT MUCH subjunctive? Now you guys are just being sadistic -- but writing an essay in French at the end (the best part being that with the compositions throughout the semester, they kept being like, "Write more! Write more!", and then they gave us like, two and a half excessively-wide-rule pages for this one, and even my highly-compact two-body-paragraphed essay ran over XD) after having written four essays in three hours on Monday was... not a big problem. XD I am an in-class essay MACHINE. My junior year English teacher had us slapping 'em out in half an hour to prepare for the AP, when we'd have two hours to write three. My AP history teacher, who I had for two years in succession for AP US history and then for AP Euro, because he was just that much of a pimp 8D, did pretty much the same thing, since the three hours of that AP went one hour for multiple choice, one hour for the Document-Based Question essay, and then one hour for two smaller essays.
In retrospect, high school was hell. XD
No, I'm totally lying; I loved my high school and was extremely sad to leave. XD It was just APs that were awful. Omg the French AP was the worst; it was horribly hot that day, and it went on forever because of the complications involved with handing out the tape recorders, handing out the tapes and headphones for the listening comprehension part, etc. etc. etc. ad death. XD
Uhh, I was talking about this French test once... I forget. :P The important part is that I got out SUPER-early and have been sitting around very lazily since, and I will probably continue to squander my time for a few hours more. Eventually I imagine I'll actually start researching among readings I largely have not done for that ten-page effing history paper I have to write. Because when I'm done with it, I can GET THE HELL OUT OF DODGE and go home for Christmas. XD
Speeeeaking of Christmas, my dad replied to the email I sent him, and although he didn't say anything outright, he MUST have looked at the Amazon link I sent him, which happened to be a listing of the Death Note box set for like $62. Which is ridiculously cheap, serious; he'd better flipping get it for me. XD
...not to sound spoiled, which I honestly don't consider myself to be. ^^' It's just that my dad has always been a Side-Dad and therefore has long since sought to buy my affections by getting me exactly what and everything that I ask for on Christmas and birthdays. Which, in recent years, I have learned to take advantage of... >D
Why, yes, I am a terrible person; however did you guess? XD
I think hell's going to be more fun anyway, to be terribly honest. XD I mean, would I really want to spend eternity hanging out with the kind of people that would go to heaven? XD
Please ignore me, really. :P I should NOTTTT talk about religion ever. I don't mean to offend anyone, but it kind of happens sometimes, and that is much bad. D:
Anyway... XD Learning lots of new words (like, you know, "writhe," "gasp," "groan," so on and so forth XD) in French with eltea yesterday made me happy. And then OMGSAUCE right before I had to go to bed, I got to talk to jenwryn online in real time for a couple minutes. It was super-legit and awesome. 8D
Which sort of counts for yesterday's happiness meme, since it actually was before midnight. wtf. XD
Today... mostly just pwning that French test, or so I think/believe/hope. And... you guys, as always. God, you are proliferating wildly; I'm spending twice as much time on LJ as I used to. XD Eeeeehmm... I thought up an idea for my metamorfic_moon fic last night trying to get to sleep, damn it. I was going to let that one fall to the wayside in favor of all of your Christmas fics. May still do, since it's not due until the thirtieth. I think. Better check up on that one. Errrm.
So yes, I'll go crackily work on the presents now, I think, and gift you later with...
I SO went there. Pointless fifteen minutes on Photoshop for the win. XD
Also, in the process of looking for that cover, I found a hilarious picture of Gerard. XD
HE FLIES?! IS THERE ANYTHING THIS MAN CAN'T DO?!
Eumm... yeah. XD That was fun. And made me happy. 8D
Additionally, I have only two more Christmas gifts to buy, and they're for my six- and four-year-old half-brothers, and I shall purchase them at the Wooden Horse like last year. Because TWH is pretty much the most legit toy store in the universe. And it's like half a mile from my house, which doesn't hurt.
PROCRASTINATION TIME. 8D
...is it wrong that I love it when my icon and my mood theme look good together? XD
