Post from late September

I just finished my icons. Yay. I got so bored of making them in the end. But they look nice in my opinion. Maybe I’ll share them with you later.
Tomorrow evening I’ll go to Sweden. It’s awarding trip from school for my good results in math olympiad last year. I’ll come back to Estonia on Saturday so I get one day free from school :)
I don’t feel like writing long article here so this is the end of this post.

13 icons + banner to make + school choices

So I’m making icons and banner for Estonian e-University. No, I’m not hired or anything like that. It’s just a competition.
But I do have only 6 icons done which means there’s a lot to be done. I’m supposed to send them on 30. September or before to compete. Considering that I’d like to send them in two color combination… even more work. It’s not WORK meaning I don’t like it I just don’t have that enthusiasm I had at the beginning.
School started on the first of September. We had this lesson where our homeroom teacher informed us about changes and reminded us some rules. We got Monday’s schedule and after that we took first-graders to festive grounds where we listened to bunch of speeches and few songs.
What really bothered me was that the first-graders talked a lot. I wasn’t especially interested in speeches aswell but it wouldn’t hurt to hear some of them.
Next day we had a trip to Tammsaare’s (Estonian writer whose book we had to read during summer) birthplace. There we were showed old buildings and all sorts of tools that were used more than century ago.
Starting from Monday (5th) we were meant to have usual 45min lessons, 36 of them each week. However when I look back at my schedule then we had only 35 lessons :) this week.
In informatics we were informed about Oracle database language that we can learn on our own from some webpage and then get a certificate for that. I’m not quite sure if I have the time and will to do that but I’m tempted since it would be helpful if I choose to study informatics in university.
Also I’m thinking of taking exam in informatics in spring. Not the state exam but the school exam. In Estonia you’re meant to take 5 exams to graduate gymnasium and at least three of them must be state exams. At the moment I’m thinking to take Estonian (compulsory), math and English as state exams. Since I already took chemistry state exam last year I need one more exam. Either informatics or biology, not sure.
And I could also do research in one of them instead of exam so there are MANY choices…

Springly thoughts

That’s what they say, it’s spring. So why the snow? I want it go away unless it won’t change into pure white. But little green leaves are better for sure.
The last quarter of school year begun on Monday. The one with exam. I chose chemistry so it shouldn’t be too hard if I take time to study. Usually I get it pretty well.
We had rather unwanted test in physics today. Not that there are tests that are wanted. But this one was on quantum physics and there are many theoretical things in there. And not easy ones to understand.
Other than that I’m working on new layout. With daffodils. Just can’t force myself to finish the picture :S. Need to try again.

Friday thoughts

Another schoolweek is over. I know it was five days as usual but it sure seemed longer for some reason.
I didn’t do much though. Usual lessons and learning.
Next week will be harder. Economy and chemistry tests on Tuesday, fhysics on Wednesday, four novels by TÅ¡ehhov for Thursday and 4A4 essay about catastrophes for Friday. I really should do some of them at weekend but it usually fails for me.
Tomorrow is going to be much more pleasant. I’m going to a concert of Estonian piano music (Mina ja klaver). There will be performed some well-known songs written by Olav Ehala and one of great Estonian actresses, Evelin Pang, will also perform. Guess who’s excited? Me!
I also have to call to support of Philips. My cd-player misses tracks for some very weird reason. So far I’ve been putting it off several times cause I doubt they can help me by phone. That means I have to go there, but I just don’t have the time!
I redid both Estonian and English gallery. No new pictures just a bit new design.
