    THEN I'M OFF TAHR HUNTING IN THE SOUTHERN ALPS - YIPIEE!!!

    //no motivation to study :(//

    Bought myself a new camera - $1177 bucks later - so new toy must play with - no time for study. :p

    Good luck, SFL. Having been and done all tertiary exams years ago, I relish the comfortable role of not envying you.

    What sorta camera did you get?

    I hear you SFL, my exams are in about 4 weeks, so i've got more time to panic and procrastinate over them.

    However they are (hopefully) my second to last set of uni exams -yeah!

    I've got three exams this year at 9:15 on Saturday mornings! I didn't even know there was a 9:15 on Saturday morning.

    Still, I'm trying not to think about it until I get my compsci assignments out of the way, which are currently taking up just about every spare moment.

    I only have 3 NCEA level 2 exams this year
    English
    Maths
    Physics

    our practise ones are in the 3rd term and our proper ones are in the 4th

    Im having real trouble with maths a physics because of all the algbra and formulas required mum payed for some study guide thingys for me i had one for my maths last year and it really helped so hopefully they will help out and i will improve

    also on fridays this term i go to the SIT for a introduction to electrical skills its real good and will help me get into a course or apprentiship next year. Today we made extension cords which is good cause you can never have two many of them.

    Also all of you guys having exams and such best of luck.

    Probably spend the first few days wandering around looking for assignments to do before my brain slows down.

    Although I'm planning on slowing my brain down a bit tonight! :D

    I'm not sure I want to know...





    :p ;) :D

    Yea - Going away into the hills for a few days after exams is a fantastic way to clear the head. Now a week and a half of nothing is a nice feeling. Might make a journey up north to see my grandmother for a few days next week - other than that I have JACK planned. :D
