I have officially finished high school! I got back my final results. I'm kind of disappointed in myself because I got .25 less than what I need to get into my course at university, which is really bringing me down. I have no idea what to do with myself at the moment. I am trying not to cry. It sucks because it could have been better, but one class was scaled down because the majority of the people in the class did below average while a small amount did above. I am really pissed off about that. It has literally ruined my chances. I am still hoping that they will let me into the course, but I am doubting that. On the plus side, now that I am no longer a student, I can finally talk to my favourite teacher ever. All we do is talk about Star Trek and Vladimir Nabokov's talent. Throw in the occasional sexual innuendo, and oddly, we both got the same marks on our final results at the end of year 12. Overall, I am glad it's all over. It has been a long, long, 13 years of school and I cannot wait for all of you Northern Hemispherians born in 95/96 to finish your final year of high school.
There is a plus side to all of this; I have acceptance to another, lesser known university, and that means that I can still do science, albeit it will not be planetary. I would like to do Chemistry and maybe finish that
It would be nice to get into that, because I enjoy it far more than Physics, and, I can always transfer out of the university into the one I really want. The only issue is that I won't be able to start my double degree until I do transfer, so hopefully the uni I want to go to will make an exception for me. *sigh* Anyways, I can't complain now, can't change what happened.
All I can say is Good Luck to the rest of you !
