    Don't know how I'm going to remember the case studies. In class we are doing The Purge & Skyfall, and for my case study for independent film I've chosen Dallas Buyers Club. So many statistics and figures to remember!

    Sorry it was too much off a shock D:
    I guess I've just got to get on with it.
    Understandable (if not slightly over the top) anger but just get your head down and work hard until the exams if you want to make up the grades

    I'm frankly getting really down about grades, I don't know if I'll actually be able to get the UMS scores I'm looking for.

    Don't be I'm not worrying because if I worry I'll do worse. So don't worry, try hard and see what happens!

    To be fair I don't try at all and get As so I suppose trying moderately will do well for me :lol:

    Thanks for the encouragement

    Yeah :lol: I didn't want to say that because we'd be deemed arrogant.

    It's true though, I think I'm guaranteed 4 As... Just want the UMS now :lol:

    Regardless, I have no self confidence anyway Slightly more academically than in other walks, but not much.

    I don't particularly feel good about getting As without effort; by very virtue of that phenomenon's description, I've put little effort in. Even if I had I doubt I would be particularly bothered, it does seem insensitive to those with lesser grades.

    I'm not a confident person but get called cocky a lot because I do well and believe I will carry on doing well. I haven't put any real effort into school so far but starting next week I am (hopefully) going to start working a lot harder to get those high UMS scores

    oooooh that really really hurts, I got an eyelash behind mine the other day :eek:
    Ugh, last Friday one of my lenses got folded up and made its way too far below my eyelids for me to retrieve it I tried for half an hour to remove it but I was already late to school so I just put another lens in (I use disposables) and kept it there for the whole day. When I finally got it out several hours later by repeatedly plunging my face into water and opening my eyes, it was covered in pus and my eye is still sore from it :yucky: .

    Don't get me wrong, I love wearing contacts and they're infinitely more convenient than glasses ever were, but that was not cool
