mood: peaceful YEAH RIGHT :/

 'Twas the first day back today and I just have to say IT WAS A COMPLETE BORE!!!!!!!!!!!! A2 pshhh does not contain a particle of anything interesting. So right, it all started with biology, now usually I don't have anything against biology (apart from Enzyme technology which I just cannot stand) but this lesson or maybe I should say this unit surpasses it by a mile. ECOLOGY, ECOLOGY, ECOLOGY, YOU MAKE ME HATE BIOLOGY. Long lists of definitions that bore the HELL out of me do not make me feel any better.

Swifly moving on to Milton and ENGLISH, I did drop RS for a reason and if I wanted a lesson in ethics I would have taken the subject!!

CHEMISTRY was cancelled woooooo!!!! which meant I had a free afternoon which was spent eating and relaxing and watching tv even though there was nought but football to watch, however , the hw doesn't seem to make any sense - not a good start in chemistry!

All in all I do not think A2 is any better than AS and it really is HOT. I really cannot stand HOT whether, it's not like I can't handle it, it JUST MAKES ME INCREDIBLY TIRED. 

Finally, I shall continue learning those dreadful definitions even though I firmly believe that I will probably forget  them by tomorrow!


Biosphere: a part of the Earth and its Atmosphere inhabited by living organisms. Biospheres are made up of many different ecosystem!!

Ecosystem: a stable but dynamic system (WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT MEAN???) characterised by the interaction of its biotic and abiotic components. Ecosystems consist of one or more communities of organisms living in a particular habitat. Each community contains populations of producers, consumers and decomposers and each population occupies a particular ecological niche  within the habitat.

Habiat: an environment in which the organisms live. a habitat is usally a defined area with its characteristic abiotic and biotic conditions.

Producer: an autotrophic organism that forms the first trophic level of a food chain. Most terrestrial food chains are based on green plants which convert light energy into chemical energy by photosynthesis. Some of this energy is transferred into the herbivores when the plants are eaten.

Consumer: Any of the heterotrophic organisms.in a food chain or food web. Herbivores feed on producers and are primary consumers. Carnivores can be secondary consumersif they feed on herbivores or tertiary consumers if they feed on other carnivores.

Decomposers: an organism that breaks down dead material or waste products. Decomposers or detritivores (ANOTHER WORD THAT I HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT) play an important role in recycling nutrients incorporated in the dead remains of animals and plants. DETRITIVORES tend to break down the dead material, providing a larger suface area for the action of the decompsoers.

And that's all for now folks, hope you've enjoyed my distressing lament on school and the worderful world of A2 (that last part was dripping with sarcasm if you failed to read the whole post not that I blame you or anything.......)

I SHALL NOW FINISH MEMORISING WORD FOR WORD ANOTHER TWO PAGES OF WORTHLESS ECOLOGICAL TERMINOLOGY, WISH ME LUCK!!!!!

exams 'suck'.

OK.
so stats went horrible and I've already mentally prepared myself for the retake in January. I don't care much for english, I only took the subject because I ENJOY reading but guess what PERSUASION was a huge disappointment. Maybe I really should have takes physics. ASYLI- well my text guide was humourous indeed, apart from that, JAQUES RULES (even though I didn't do a conclusion, which I'll probably get marked down for but hey who cares). And then there's the franklin's tale, my advice to anyone who is taking an exam on any of the tales in the canterbury 'box set', in the future, would be: DO NOT READ THE WHOLE TALE CONTINUOUSLY FOR THE FIRST TIME THE NIGHT BEFORE (OR MORNING WHICH IS WHAT I DID) THE EXAM because it just does not work, I mean I spent 10 minutes looking for the passage. 

I have Biology and chemistry left and they're probably the worst out of the lot. 

N.B. Last minute revison really does kill you. Trust me I know. Did it for every exam so far and as a result my head felt like ****
I mean it worked for GCSEs but A-levels, a whole different ball game, I really didn't understand that before but it's all too clear now, crystal infact.

This shall be a very short entry because its 11:30pm (not that my entries are long or anything), I'm tired and actually still need to find my biology cwk booklet.

I went to amanda's animal rights society today and it was interesting. The topic was on eggs, i.e. battery farming, whether free range eggs are better, and the discussion went back to its usual course of the ethics involved and what is and how to define 'natural'. There was a strange comparison made by someone, I dont recall his name but he compared living things to computer viruses, I saw where he was coming from but you can't call a computer virus alive can you? yes, it grows and moves but it does not excrete, respire etc. so no I don't think I'd call a computer virus alive though it may technically be partially plausible.

Had the chemistry assessed practical, I have no idea how that went, I think I made a few fundamental errors but the good/bad news is that I cannot now do another design as I have wasted away all my attempts at improving. It also embellished the fact that I seriously cannot draw.

I have my biology skills A and B tomorrow which I have to do well if I want an A and its also my last attempt. I have to make sure I do not forget to mention the essential terms involved as I did last time.

Now, I should really try and find that booklet and then go to sleep.

Just finished my Persuasion essay, I'm so relieved. I thought that I would have to stay up all night. I think I'm finally starting to enjoy the novel but that's partly because I like the bit that I just did my essay about, that's it.

I managed to make a fool of myself in biology again.

My life is centred around school work and I hate it. I don't have time to read what I want to read or do what I want to do. I just can't wait 'til it's over, another year and a bit to go.

I hate chem, chem hates me, we're the worst of enemies, with a crash, bang, wallop and the textbook in the bin, chem-istry makes my head spin.

How appropriate. Chemistry belongs in the nightmare world.

Preemal's rap song for amnesty was the funniest thing ever. I'm still pondering, was the humour intended? Comic.

London

I wander through each chatered street,
Near where the chartered Thames does flow
And mark in every face I meet
Marks of weakness marks of woe

In every cry of every man,
In every infant's cry of fear
In every voice, in every ban,
The mind-forged manacles I hear:

How the chimney-sweeper's cry
Every blackening church appalls
And the hapless soldier's sigh
Runs in blood down palace-walls.

But most, through midnight streets I hear
How the youthful harlot's curse
Blasts the new-born infant's tear,
And blights with plagues the marriage-hearse.

William Blake - I think this describes London at the time of the plague


The solitary reaper

Behold her, single in the field,
Yon solitary highland Lass!
Reaping and singing by herself;
Stop here, or gently pass!
Alone she cuts and binds the grain,
And sings a melancholy strain;
O listen for the vale profound
Is overflowing with the sound.

No nightingale did ever chaunt
More welcome notes to weary bands
Of travellers in some shady haunt,
Among Arabian sands:
A voice of thrilling ne'er was heard
In spring-time from the cuckoo-bird,
Breaking the silence of the seas
Among the farthest Hebrides.

Will no one tell me what she sings?-
Perhaps the plaintive numbers flow
For old, unhappy, far-off things,
And battles long ago:
Or is it some more humble lay,
Familiar matter of today?
Some natural sorrow, loss, or pain
That has been and may be again?

Whate'er the theme, the maiden sang
As if her song could have no ending;
I saw her singing at her work,
And o'er the sickle bending;-
I listened, motionless and still;
And, as I mounted up the hill,
The music in my heart I bore,
Long after it was heard no more

William Wordsworth- I think this is a thoroughly sad poem. She seems so alone, projecting her woe through the songs she sings. He's captured the emotion brilliantly. I love it.

I have the power of empathy by the looks of it.

Mar. 10th, 2006 | 12:00 am

Empathy
Empathy- Your inner power is Empathy! This

means that you have a talent for identifying

others emotions, often by simply glancing at

them. You are EXTREMELY shy and quiet. People

sometimes dont notice youre around and seem

surprised to find out you even exist in a big

class. Youre the often silent, goody two

shoes, and few get passed the walls youve

built up to stop yourself being hurt, as you

no doubt have been in the past. Not everyone

understands you, in fact some think that

youre a snob or worse because you rarely

participate in group activities. Youre

extremely sensitive, even the least harsh of

words can hurt you. Only your very few,

closest friends who have earned your

hard-to-get trust know who you really are

inside; a sweet, gentle young woman who is

lonely and so desperately needing friends to

support you. You can get very depressed and

not always know why, despite your power of

empathy, as it seems to only work for people

outside you. Your friends always turn to you

when they need advice or comforting, and in

some way you need to give that helpit makes

you feel better in return to know that youve

helped out your friends. Despite your cold,

impassive exterior and high, seemingly

unbreachable walls, inside you are really a

great, intelligent person, full of compassion

and love, if only people would dare take a

chance and try to get through your tough

shell. Never let others get you down, or

change you. You are very special the way you

areeven if you dont have fifty thousand

friends, you are just as, if not more

extraordinary than everyone else. Reach for

the stars, because I dont doubt youll catch

hold of them.
Boy/Girl who will sweep you off your feet:

A sweet, shy and romantic man/woman. The kind

of guy/woman you know will never, ever hurt

you, and will love you for ever. The kind of

person who believes in true love, and soul

mates.
Your stone: Blue Topaz
Your power: Healing. Emotionally,

physically, or spiritually, you heal people

with your words, your actions and presence.

Youre the one that the little children are

always drawn to, because they know youll

never let anything hurt them.
Your element: Clairvoyance (The power to

see objects or events that cannot be

perceived by the normal five senses.)
A quote that applies to you: "True

beauty shines from the soul and warms the

world with its kindness, compassion ,

and integrity."


What's your inner power? (Girls only sorry. Beautiful anime pictures, lengthy results)

what do you think??? hmmm *ponders*
