A Post From My Past Self

My past self is speaking… And it wants to tell you something.

My past self is saying… You are all being trolled. There is no past self. This is not a dramatic post.

Well technically I’m not lying – this is my past self talking. You see, my internet connection has sadly passed away recently and I’m offline but I CAN’T NOT FREAK OUT ABOUT MY EXAMS BEING OVER so I’ll just write this and post it when I get the chance. So when you read this… It’ll be my past self talking!

Oh but wait. Isn’t everything you read written by somebody’s past self?

And I thought I was being clever. Silly me.



I AM SO HAPPY EVEN THOUGH I DID TERRIBLE IN MATH but good in the rest so oh well.

I feel you deserve a compte-rendu of all my exams. Joking, of course you don’t, I just want to give you a compte-rendu because I’m that generous. Joking again, I actually just really like writing compte-rendus. And writing the word “compte-rendu” too. Fun!

Chemistry: first exam! I went in being eaten by nerves. I knew the first exercice. Then I didn’t know the second. Then I looked over the whole test and almost fainted because I saw so many stuff I had no idea about what they meant. I decided to skip the second exercice, and do what I know. So yeah I ended up completing all the exercices (I always freak out over nothing). I came back to the second exercice and in my THRILL about knowing how to solve the first question I FUCKING FORGOT TO DO THE REST OF THE QUESTIONS I AM SO DUMB but still I did well.

Philosophy: I just went in, wrote a jumble of everything I knew about epistemology, Kant, Bachelard, Popper and Plato, sprinkled some pep talk about freedom, and presented. I got my grade today; 14. BOOM. Highest.

[We interrupt our compte-rendu to inform you that our grading system is very very different from what you might be used to. We use actual numbers instead of singing the alphabet #woopsie. So yeah and the coefficient varies but I’ll just give you the grade over 20 to avoid confusion]

Civism: do you guys even have this stupidly useless subject? It’s where you learn about the law and stuff. I got 16.5 just like last time. Well I could’ve done better but it’s a very good grade compared to what I actually studied.


Arabic: hm, actually not bad! The text was not unfamiliar and I got to trash talk celebrities in the writing assignment. Hopefully I’ll be able to scrape a 13!

[Another interruption: I understand, you must be *really* confused as to how 13 is considered good in one subject while 16 is not in another. Again, our grading standards are really weird and REALLY unfair and just generally shitty. Imagine that for half of our subjects, C/B/B- is the maximum grade. The literal maximum.]

Geography: I’ve been really lucky with these memory-based tests. I also did really well compared to what I studied! Because I didn’t even half study. Rebel.

Biology: I didn’t know at all what to expect, because our teacher is basically a lunatic and I had no idea if she had actually taught me anything. Turns out she *might* have? I didn’t find much difficulty in the test, hopefully that’d be reflected on my grades which I’ll get tomorrow!

French: one of my favorite subjects. The test was quite easy and I got a 14, my average (usually the highest grade but my friend Mini got 15 this time which is a great feat). The only thing that in perplexing is that we had the same subject for the writing as last year. And I got 5/8 this time while I got 6.5/8 last time. Guess it’s just teacher tastes!

History: I studied for this. Honestly. And I didn’t do bad. I’ll have to wait for lunday (WAIT WHAT I mixed Monday with Lundi I must be getting real sleepy lolz) for the grade but I hope it’s somewhere along 18.

Physics: THEY DID IT AGAIN! (This time it’s a happy scream). The test was SO EASY, honestly I love our teachers (YEAH YEAH I know I once wrote a whole post about how my physics teacher’s the biggest asshole BUT turns out he really is one of the best teachers this year). Thank GOD they gave us something to balance out the horrible Maths.

[Okay listen I always have to delete the “s” when I write Maths because you guys write it without one but that’s just how I’ve been taught so bye]

Last, but not least (well actually by some standards it IS least – least demanding, least exhausting, least… Thing), English! The English level at our school is so awfully standard that I pride myself on having actually reached the level of blogging and writing coherant stuff. So yep I did great. I always view the English exam as a fun little activity sheet.

Aaaaaand that’s it! Am I forgetting something?
OH YES we had a religion exam (Catholic) and I got 16.5, not bad.

So NOW that’s it. Ugh, I can’t believe I’m DONE! Now I’ll have to wait for my grades. I WISH I had my scholarship secured, that way I wouldn’t give two shits about grades, but I have to do my best to earn the best scholarship I can.

I’ll make sure to post all my grades here, don’t worreh. I’m pretty sure you’re not remotely worrehd but oh well I’ll tell you anyway.

Wait has anyone even read this far?


After our last exam, we had a little Valentine’s day celebration in the theatre (even though it was like 3 or 4 days later) and we sang and did some stuff but honestly not ONE performance wasn’t messed up somehow. (In the ‘mistake’ kind of messed up. Not the weird and disconcerting messed up. Although some stuff WAS weird and disconcerting. Huh.) But we still had fun especially that we were all so glad the exams were over.

Now it’s 12:33 A.M. and by the time of writing my internet connection is back again (yaaaay) and you’re not reading my past self anymore !

Oh but wait – I already established that everything is past me. Wo’evah. Bye!

  1. Civism? We have a subject called PSHE(C) which is basically citizenship. How can you get graded on that? Isn’t it something that you do if you’re interested and if you’re not, you’re f@&/!d when you enter the real world? The most useless subject here is probably Ethics. How can you grade someone based on their ethics, seriously?

  2. Civism sounds a lot like Social Studies….and I HATE it from the bottom of my heart! It’s so freaking useless and we have to study half a book for one stupid test. And I know what Maths (yes, with an s!) tests do to you. I always feel totally prepared until I see the test and start questioning my life.

  3. Hahahaa πŸ˜€ I CAN SO RELATE TO THE ALL CAPS ECTATIC FEELS HERE. My exams just got over too. Someone give me a jukebox, I need to do my victory dance. Victory over sleep deprivation, anxiety amongst other things.
    LOL the thing about math being super interesting and ridiculously ‘wait whaaat’-inducing at the same time? Insanely true, gahh.

            1. No I meant I wasn’t in vacation *now*… We also get 2 weeks (or more, changes every year, this year and last we had 3) on Christmas and 2 weeks on Easter… And 3 months of summer holidays. You might think like ‘OMG 3 months wow I can’t lucky you’ but trust me it gets really boring to the point where you’re just wishing school would start again already (but maybe that’s just me). I wish we had the same program as you! A week off every month and a half!

              1. ohh, i was surprised cos i thought you never had vacation!!!lol, three months sound fun, but i agree with you!!especially cos’ my parents are really strict and extremely religious, and i am not, and they make me do things i don’t want to, like wear religious dress for instance, it creates huge arguments before we leave the house, because i won’t wear what they ask me, and yeah, now apart from school, were we have a uniform (dunno how i would live to go school without it!!)i dont like going out a lot anymore!!and my siblings are quite snitchy and annying, by the end of 6 weeks i am like yaaay!!the only thing i miss about holidays, are the fact that i go to my nan’s house, and see all my cousins, as all my cousins and nan and grandpa live an hour away from us, and i love the late mornings!!!thats all i really like tbh!!how bout you?oh, yeah, and by the way, i nominated you for a tag, pls check out my blog for more info. it is called:girl code-the way things should be, but i thought, that it would be good, to get opinions from both genders!!what’s your fave subject,a nd whats your worst?byexxx

                  Wow. That sucks. I know how religious parents could be… I hope when you’ll get older you’ll have more freedom! My fav subject… Music? Nah that’s not a real subject… I guess French. I never get bored, French literature is beautiful. My worst is… I don’t know I don’t really have a worst subject. I dislike some stuff but equally. And yours? And where are you from?

                    1. I WISH I was in England once! I hope I’ll get to visit one day. Ugh. Your parents seem rather controlling… It’s not nice to hear especially since you live in such a developed country. I really hope you won’t get forced into marriage, that’d be awful.
                      I don’t really like Arabic even though it’s my first language… It’s so… Complicated and haughty! I could just sense the Arabian pride through it. But some texts are beautiful and the prose is too.
                      I have two sisters; my family is moderate (not huge, not small)

                    2. yeah, england is fun, but one thing, living here makes you think everywhere is like un developed!!until i started blogging, i didn’t know, apart from america and uk, people had proper technology!!and my friends thought the same!!its like living in a bubble (a fun bubble), and you think most other countries aren’t that advanced?!yep, my parents are VERY controlling!!yeh, i hope so too!!or i could divorce, but then i would be a divorcee, and its not a nice thing i dont think, if the guys done nothing wrong to me, and if i did, i would prob be disowned by my parents, and tho i may be free, i would feel kinda upset too.i don’t realy know a lot of arabic or read proper text so yeah, i like it, because you easily just can quickly write it, ok, the dots can slow me down, but i don’t usually add, those lines, that go over or under the letter, or the one that looks like a backwards ‘p’ lying down!!i just write ordinary basic things like my name, which is in persian arabic, and things like i drink he drinks she drinks, etc!!i have a 5 year old brother and a nearly 10 year old sister!!i am the oldest tho!!so yeah!!!its the same size as yours!!tho, most people i know, dont have many siblings, either only child, or one sibling, very few have more than that!!okay, i’ll reply to your reply tomorrow, after i get back from school cos’ my mum is bugging me to have dinner, even tho, its currently 6 minutes past 9pm, and get off my laptop, what she doesn’t know is i am not doing hw, i always say i am when i am not, or else i wouldn’t be allowed to use the internet, or they would give me 20 mins, and watch me.awkward right?!talk to ya 2morrow then:)byeand good night(is it night in lebanon?)Xxx

    1. Wow… That’s truly awful. I live in an ARAB country and girls have so much more freedom. What the hell?! Do they treat you well at least? If you know they love you and they’re doing it because they’re over protective then I might understand where they’re coming from, but if they’re just oppressing you it’s awful. Keep being the rebel that you are, and never delete this blo of yours because you have the freedon to do whatever you want!
