Have I told you guys that I've been taking swimming lessons ever since the end of November 2010? Well, I guess I haven't (or had I?) but anyway I take the lessons every Thursday and Saturday. Or at least when I can make it.
Anyway, today right after school ended my Mom picked me up so we can drive directly to the swimming pool in Vila Dago Tol, and when we got there my brother said that he forgot to pack his swimming trunks. So Mom had to get home, pick up those trunks, and get back here, and that probably took up almost 15 minutes, more or less. And I had started MY swimming lesson ahead, which I wasn't sure is an advantage. Oh, well...
Anyway today we got to jump of the end of the pool, swim, turn back, reversed, and swam back again. This was really complicated and I was exhausted, not only because of the swimming itself but also because of school, because we had Try Out today (as we do every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, starting from last week), and then Mandarin, and then Religion and Art. And the glue fumes and noise in Art gave me a headache, so keep that in mind.
Oh, and in case you're wondering what a Try Out is, I better explain that all sixth-graders in Indonesia have to take this HUGE exam called the UASBN (Ujian Akhir Sekolah Berstandar Nasional) if they wanna pass to middle school, or what we call SMP.
AND, this UASBN is a really, really serious exam that we've been preparing ourselves ever since fifth grade (that's right)! Try Outs are supposed to be like practices, and we have it every Tuesday (Science), Wednesday (Math Indo), and Thursday (Bahasa Indonesia).
Yeah, we're probably lucky enough there are only three subjects in this UASBN thing. But then again, there's something else called the UAS, which is a whole other story...
So just to tell you what happened today. See ya later guys and stay on the lookout for more posts!
Welcome to my world!
Hi guys, thanks for visiting my blog. Not my first blog, actually, but one of my best. Anyway, I want to tell you a little about myself before I start anything. Let's see... oh yeah. I really, really, really, really, really love How to Train Your DRAGON!!!!! It's the best movie ever. It's like... wow, I cannot describe it. It's incredible, amazing, indescribable, very wow, and also heart-touching too. It's the best movie ever. Oh, and I also like American Girl. It's pretty good, but of course not as good as How to Train Your DRAGON. And I also like The Sims 2. I have Seasons, Pets, Family Fun stuff, Glamor Life stuff, etc. Oh, and I desperately want to be a Viking. Well, that's all the basics about me and you can learn the details in this blog. Happy reading!
