It's been a while. Is anybody still there?

Last Thursday the strike suddenly ended. Just as I'd gotten used to it! It was awful in the start, but we didn't really have much left to do anyway, so it's not like we got a pile of work dropped on us while we were still in summer mode.

Loljk, we did.

Our geography teacher expected us to finish a 10 minute presentation of population stats over x years for some part of the country. Now, that doesn't sound so bad, and we'd already started the project before the strike, so it shouldn't be a problem, right?
False. He changed all the groups and expected us to come up with our presentations in one day. Unfortunately I was sick that day and could not go to school. Really. I was.

Other than that we had a math test on Wednesday. Yesterday, that is. Which was great, because had it not been for that test I'd have failed the subject. I now barely pass it, with the grade 2. Which is equivalent to I have no idea in American. 2 out of 6, anyways.

But lately I've been a bit depressed, to be honest. I know I should be happy and careless now that school's almost over, but I may not pass the year because I'm failing too many subjects. If I fail 3 or more I won't pass. Of course, my psychiatrist can help me get in the next year and whatnot, but I just really feel like such a failure. I've been sick most of this entire school year and I probably have over 70% absence. I guess it's a wonder that I passed some of my subjects at all, eh?

Oh well, it's too late to do anything about it now. I'm just gonna cross my fingers and hope that everything turns out fine, because if it doesn't that ruins every plan I've ever made for my future, and that would suck a lot. It's not like I can do anything about it anymore either. Tomorrow is our last day of school before summer break, and we'll be getting our grades. I'm pretty anxious about it. I hope I don't fail too many classes, because then I'd probably cry, and it would be awkward to cry at school on the last day celebration.
Maybe I should just not look at them until I get home. Yes, that sounds like a marvelous plan.

I'm thinking of maybe changing my main instrument next year if I get in. It's not that I don't enjoy playing guitar, it's just that I don't like being told what to do. Now while this might sound idiotic, it's something I just can't let go of and it's keeping me from learning anything. I want to learn how to sing properly instead. We had singing classes last year, and I really enjoyed it. I really do love to sing, and I feel like I can improve a lot if I learn professionally, even if it's just for a year. And I think I can get a better grade in singing than I did in guitar. This year I got a 3... Which is bad for your main instrument. It's supposed to be the think you're really good at. Stupid teachers, evaluating me on the same level as the others who've taken guitar classes since they were 4 and have virtuoso parents.

Somebody tell me that it's a good idea that I should go through with. I need some encouragement here.

This is the part where I'm supposed to make up for the lack of blogging lately with a super awesome story about something incredibly that I've done, right?
Yeah, I've got nothing. Hopefully somebody'll take some pictures tomorrow and then I could blog them and you can all be happy. Yay!

Oh, and Lewis: I get my random facts from google, and from watching TV. QI is a cool show.

Obscure song of today:

Super interesting fact of tonight: In Belgium, there is a museum just for strawberries.

Don't you dare start singing. No jk do what you want (added this because you seem sort of depressed,so all the best of luck on passing your tests). Oh yeh thanks for letting.

Letting me know where you got the facts (continuation from my previous comment because I'm a derp).
