MUAHAHAHA. Thank God, I didn't do question 3or 2 for that matter.
I seriously contemplated about doing technology - I mean, I'm good at it, I've got a good track-record, and I've got examples that no one else would use and blah blah blah
. But I was correct. The whole world and their mothers did question 3 for the sheer easiness of it all (you can't fail
the question, I mean! WE USE TECHNOLOGY NOW? HIIII) and the rest of the world and their fathers did question 2 on "are pictures more powerful than words?".
Plus, a quick scrounging around LJ (I am such a stalker) reveals that well, question 3 (and 2!!) was significantly popular even in the top 5 JCs. Lest I lose out to them with my torturous expressions (hahaha) and my glib grammar mistakes of writing too fast which makes Cummings seem positively readable, I'm glad I didn't write anything on question 2. I would have discussed slightly, okay really abstract matters which in the end, wouldn't pertain to the question. Dangerous, when I write about things I love so much.
So I did the last question on the paper.
Yeah, the one about whether newspapers and magazines reports are increasingly more trivial rather than important. And I know I badly paraphrased the question. So far, I only know Chung-towkay did the question. I have no idea who else has done it. Which reduces the competition for me. Ah media, I love you. I just piled on the Culture of Fear thing (NOAM CHOMSKY I LOVE YOU!!!!) and nice cliched(?) but well-phrased ideas of how 'importance' depends on the region, age group and so and and so forth. Anyway, I shouldn't do too badly for the essay.
Now the comprehension was a disaster.
There goes my usual 7/8 for AQ!!!
I think I managed to 'ace' the short answer questions. And for me 'ace' is getting a fairly good pass, noting that I usually fail
the short answer questions. The summary just killed me. It was mind-bogglingly annoying to do because of the numerous parts. :\ Which in every respect, killed off the extra time which I usually used to nap.
Uh huh, usually I finish my comprehension with 15 mins to boot. This time, I couldn't complete my AQ (WHICH I HAD LIKE GOBS AND GOBS OF THINGS TO WRITE ABOUT, THANK YOU CJC!) and only managed to zip in 3 points. Hopefully the 3 points can garner a safe 5 ot 6 depending on the quality? D: I am SAD for my AQ!!! I mean, arrrrgh the prelims just tested us on teh FREEDOM OF SPEECH (7/8 thank you very much, I'm very proud of my numerous 7/8s which has NO MEANING NOW!!!) and yah I'm quite devastated.
Anyway, I have to up my gears for Econs, History and Lit now. Gah.
After the exam, we headed out to Subway for lunch (mmm meatballs) and I waltzed down to Kino to get a new mechanical pencil. The Pilot Opt
, to be precise. I also found this very informative website.
So it turns out that I've some how inadverently become a fashion icon of sorts (wtf, I know that sounds totally incongruous) with people cashing in with my headphones-style and now my mechanical pencil choice.
Maybe I should go dabble in fashion design.
So the point of this is that I won't be online for most of the day tomorrow because I'll be at the airport mugging my ass off on things called History and Econs. Or maybe History and Lit depending on how I'm feeling.
But definitely history.
... I feel rather sad for submitting my GP essay because I do think I did write it quite well (there is something wrong with that sentence, can you tell?). I mean, it wasn't super cheem
, extremely sophisticated used latinate or bombastic words - but it was effective, it got the point across and it was entertaining. Not E! Entertainment entertaining, but more of the docu-mentary... Anthony Bordain kind.
So I just said that because I was feeling insecure (!!!! what??
) about my writing skills after reading a random essay floating on the interweb.
No, not that AJC one. Haha.
