Just popping by to come full circle with that infamous Leaving Cert State Exam I did for a few weeks in June, and that made me take a short break from ponies back in 2011 to study.
Well, for you non-Irish folk, I'll put this as easily as I can.
The course I want to do, Multimedia, asks for roughly 365 points, and recommends the subjects English, Art and Music.
In my Leaving, I managed to get 515 points, and I also did the 3 required subjects (:
(HL) - Higher Level (OL) - Ordinary Level
A1: 95%-100% A2: 85%-89%
B1: 80%-84% B2: 75%-79% B3: 70%–74%
And so on...
Here were mine:
HL) Irish (Gaeilge) A2 90 Points - Annoyed slightly that this wasn't A1, as were many people in my year, they marked it pretty damn hard.
HL) English (Béarla) B1 85 Points - Happy with this, since most of the course is learning and opinions rather than the expressing and use of the language.
HL)French (Fraincís) B1 85 Points - Bah, was almost certain I'd gotten an A in this, I blame the awful questions the examiner gave me in the oral exam :v
HL)Italian (Iodáilis) A2 90 Points - Very happy with this, seeing as I only began the course 2 years ago!
HL)Art (Ealaín) B2 80 Points - Considering I fucked up the main part of this exam, I'm happy with this result. Worst subject ever though.
HL)Music (Ceol) B1 85 Points - Disappointed, again, like the rest of my class. This was marked extremely harshly IMO.
OL)Maths (Mata) A2 50 Points - Not counting this subject anyways, but yera, can't complain about it really.
And since I did all subjects, bar English, through Irish, I get myself a nice little bonus!
Now just waiting for Monday to hear if I get my course or not, we'll see what happens!
Today I finally got the 2nd session of my tattoo done, currently wrapped up and hidden from my father ;D
Here's a fairly small version of it, uploaded on the artist's Instagram: i.imgur.com/bx1gH8o.jpg
Absolutely delighted with it, much better than I'd ever hoped for!
And for anyone who cares, I've actually been doing quite a lot of drawings lately, been having great fun with the tablet!
Actually, had the first comic strip idea sketched up, part of it lined already.
Though I won't make it the official, as it really is just a test one.
Basically, I've a tonne of random shit from one night (some of which is uploaded here: forums.thebluecommunity.com/sh… )
But nothing's set in stone yet, though I'd really like to make something of it, a hobby to pass the time!
Unfortunately, I'm taking my PC in tomorrow to get her checked up, as I'm skeptical about some sounds she's making. But gonna upgrade her while I'm at it, fitting in 32Gb of RAM along with a much awaited core i7 processor.
While she's away, I'll probably end up reverting to pencil and paper, might get some more stuff done!
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand that's about it for now!
Oh, but I'm working on a little audio test that seems to have interested Simon Viklund somewhat, the guy who made the music to the likes of the Payday games ;D
