I hope this is okay by those in charge, but I need to get this out and this is the closest I have to a conventional blog, so here goes nothing...
This year at school I did exceptionally well, and was even given the position of academic captain, one of four in a school of over 1500. And so it came as shock to me when I got my exam results back about an hour ago and found that I failed about 2/3 of my end of year exams, doing especially poorly in the subjects I find I excel at, history and english. I wrote 5000 words in under three hours, none of it waffle and all of it 100% accurate. I reread everything methodically and I'm sure it's amongst the best I've ever written. I failed every paper.
This year's results are the ones that go out to all the universities too, which means that my chances of doing what I've always wanted to do (be a history teacher) are completely shot. I've got one more year of school left and I'm not sure if I can handle it any more, seeing these results. If my best fails, then is there any point? Arg. I apologise to anyone still reading for laying this onto you guys, but as I said, it's this or nothing really.
So where next for Poly? Back to school and the very distinct posibility of failure? Victoria university is a convenient half hour flight away and has open entry first year courses, but the mere idea of going back into the whole history side of things (despite research being one of the few things that makes me genuinely happy) makes me feel slightly sick. And of course my GF is moving away on the 10th so she can do a rather distinguished design/graphics degree and I won't be seeing her for at least a year. So if y'all want to know why updates might slow down a bit, there it is: RL isn't playing fair. Ah well, in true Poly fashion I just have to wait and hope it turns out for the best.
Back on the Ogre front, I have finally aquired some superglue and repaired the hunter and the yhetees. I've also finished the Yhetee's fur and bases, and nearly finished one of the bulls. His club is yet to be highlighted, but I'm pretty pleased with how he looks. My camera has gone walkies and isn't coming back until tommorrow night, but I'll get pics up when I can. As explained about, this may take a bit longer than usual as I'll probably be moping, but I'll do my best.
A rather depressed Poly
EDIT: 100 posts and a pet gnoblar to boot. So something good did come out of today. Hurrah! *does dance*
