Envy, exams, eholidays (well, I had to keep the 'e' theme)

I hate you people phoning each other. Why won't someone phone me? (To answer the obvious: because either they don't want to talk to you, it costs too bloody much to phone Australia, or both) I'm very envious of you all right now. Or should I say y'all? Eh.

Maths B problem solving exam today was HELL. Seriously, where do maths teachers get off with giving not enough information to solve the bloody question? Flaming morons. Oh well, hopefully I've done enough to earn satisfactory marks.

The German test afterwards wasn't nearly so bad. Indeed, if any test can be joyous, it was. My German class is grand, my German teacher is grand, and I think I've done well, apart from possibly mucking up one or two things. But I'm hoping for a good mark there.

Tomorrow is Modern History. It will not be fun, but hopefully I've got enough stuff memorised to get a B. My friend is taking the exam after morning tea, I'm taking it after lunch, so hopefully he can tell me what I need to know and what I can forget during lunch. No, I'm not going to bludge answers off him. The only thing I'm going to ask him is whether, with my study, I'm on the right track or not, and whether I need to know dates. I've been told we do, but I don't know what dates, and the only one I know is when Ho Chi Minh declared the Democratic Republic of Vietnam on the 2nd of September, 1945. I wish I was better informed than this. I'm really nervous about this History exam. Oh well, I should get by.

I also have my German reading exam, but like all German reading exams, it should be easy. I just hope I don't end up eating my words tomorrow.

Maths B assignment must be started. First things first - I need to find the formula to work out the Richter scale. Well, I know it, but I think I need to find a reference. Bah. Then I need to get to work on the actual thing. Shouldn't take me too long.

I cannot wait for the holidays. I'm looking forward to kicking my feet up and relaxing. Hopefully my Internet will do what it did tonight and connect promptly. It actually connected on the first attempt. I was very pleasantly surprised. It makes a nice change from other nights. Mum's told me not to worry about the phone bill, but I still am. I know she doesn't really have the money to pay it, and I don't want to add to any financial problems. Once we move in with Alan, things will be easier, but for now, we're still not the richest family (I believe we're officially below the poverty line) and I just don't want to give Mum any extra burdens or hassles.
