I can’t believe it, in two days we are going home, I’m so excited, and I just want to be in my bed sleeping. The other day, they turned on the radiators, and it’s so warm I can’t sleep at night, it’s so bad. But well Christmas is coming, and I’m really excited.
For Christmas I always go to France, where the family of my mum lives. It’s one of the only moments in the year, that we see each other, because it’s really difficult to put everyone together, we’re 20 people, and it’s even worse if we don’t live near each other. This year my grandma was complaining about everyone just asking for money, so I “scarified” myself, and I asked them to give me the money before, so I would appear with my own presents, and now I don’t know how I’m going to fit, all of that into de baggage. But well I’ll manage something
Another reason why I’m so excited is because tomorrow is the Christmas dinner. It is a small party that the school organises every year, where the teachers get disguised and serve your dinner. It’s really nice, because you get to dress up, and party a little bit without needing to bother about a hotel or permission of the school. But well, the reason I’m most excited is because you have to go in Paris, and of course, I’m going with my boyfriend, but even if we have got out before, we have never got the actual chance of taking photos, and I’m in love with photos, not about being on them, but mostly about taking them, and saving them.
But in these world not everything are roses, two weeks ago we had the Christmas exams, and they weren’t bad, but they weren’t good either. I’m really frustrated, and it’s so bad, because after Christmas we just have three weeks until the Mocks, I feel quite stressed. I think that is not ideal, because having them so close one to another puts more pressure on the student, and then if the Christmas exams were bad, the probability of the student recovering in three weeks is really low.
But well, I can do it, and if you’re in a similar situation than me, you can do it as well.
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a happy new year. Enjoy it, and I’ll tell you about mine in three weeks, before the awesome Mocks.
