    You're my soulmate. I love you
    Seriously, though, that book IS my favorite book. It has been for a year and a half now.

    I can see why. Although, for me, nothing can top Harry Potter. I'm deliberately subjective.

    Ditto. Math on Tuesday, Latin on Monday AND Tuesday, and Greek on Tuesday. -.-
    The worst part is, I've got to study math all weekend if I want to pass this test. I don't understand a thing we're doing.

    Also, I'm re-reading A Tale of Two Cities.

    "Nothing at all, Joe."
    "That's a coincidence, too, for I made the same of it myself."

    English test today on features of spoken speech BLEEEEEEEEACHH! It would've been fine if I was there for the lesson when we learnt it all.

    How does the Football League show use:
    -Elision
    -Ellipsis
    -Dialect
    -Deixis
    and pauses to appeal to it's audience.

    I don't know, I don't like football.

    This is turning into the 'complain about school' thread XD

    Anyway, I hate soccer too. Football, I mean, in British English. All those players get millions of money and all they do is kick a ball XD

    I got through the math exam. Now all I can do is sit and wait for the grade. I swear, getting the exam back is worse that actually taking it.
    I've got a Serbian exam tomorrow. That'll be an easy one. It's just the history of Slavic literature.
    And I've got another physics exam on Tuesday!

    No, to my class. Sometimes the teacher gives as a lesson to teach instead of her, and grades us on it. It's not that bad, I just hate being in the center of attention.
    On the other hand, I got an A! Good for me

    Although nobody is probably interested xD...
    I have finally decided to sit down and read the original Black Beauty. I've only read the censored, kid-version before and the movie(s) they have made have been censored.
    The original Black Beauty was published in 1877. It was Anna Sewell's only novel, as she died 5 months after the publication.
    So far, I am IN LOVE with this book. The main horse, Black Beauty, and my horse, Gracie, are a lot alike. They both have had many different owners and homes. They were both born into a nice place. Eventually, they both ended up going to neglectful and abusive homes. However, in the end, they both live the rest of their lives being overfed, fat, happy ponies.

    They also have the same attitude. Willing to please whoever, even the ones most brutal towards them.

    I love my pony. Smile

    I looked back on her previous owners and stables. She's had seven.

    I would probably bore you all to tears if I explained horse genetics and the tracking down of previous owners.

    But i'm NEVER EVER EVER selling my pony. She will always be my baby girl.
