Finals.  I'm so stressed out.  I have two days to write an eight-page paper and I'm not even ready to begin writing yet.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces. I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

@Ahhh Girl, I enjoyed every word of the report! You've done a wonderful job.

I hope things work out for you, @Linde. I'm sure you will manage things on your own eventually. It's always only the beginning that's truly difficult. Got my fingers crossed for you :)

 

As for what's happening in my life; well, things are surprisingly okay. Finals aren't stressing me out, which is odd, as I have a tendency to panic in situations like this. I'm graduating high school, so on top of the usual exams, I've got the Matura (which is basically five state exams that I can't get into any University in the world without), which I haven't even begun to study for. And when that's over in mid-June, I've got to sit down and take learning German very seriously. Otherwise it is no Univesity in Germany, and no future in my country. And, the only thing that's really worrying me in this situation is that I'm too relaxed. It's odd and frightening, more than the actual exams. 
But perhaps that's got to do with my friend getting through all her chemotherapy sessions cancer-free. I'd spent too much time with her during this tough period, and that's possibly what's made me look at the world differently. As stressful, painful and worrisome as it has been, I am glad I lost sleep, concentration and time for studying over it. Besides being there for my friend, I've set my priorities straight as a plus.
So here I am, going though this forum with my Maths book in front of me. I keep convincing myself that the reason I'm not frantically studying, as I usually am, is because it's only a revision of things I already know, and because I had another horrible fight with my mum minutes ago which I am yet to recover from. The truth is, I am disappointed and lonely and so tired, but oddly happy at the same time. Must be another mixed episode in my bipolar journal.

@ScrambledEggs Your written English is superb. Have you ever thought about attending a university in the U.S.?

Oh, I have, a great deal too. So many days spent daydreaming about sunny California. Unfortunately, that's an option I can only dream to afford. When it comes to Germany, I've got a place to stay and an aunt to help me out, and I've well settled that I can make money over there on my own. A part time job and a guitar to drag on the streets is all I need to get through University. 

I used to enter all kinds of competitions so I could get a scholarship and go to the USA or the UK, and won a fair number of them too, but poor Macedonia doesn't invest in people with no family nor political connections to the government. I guess I just have to make do. 

And thank you very much for the compliment :) Glad to know that what I write is at least understandable!

Oh that's right, finals are coming up indeed. My brother and sister are already very busy studying for them too *cough*notreally*cough*
I want to wish everyone good luck with that! Think logically, eat and sleep well, and try to relax as well. It's all stuff you've already learned, so you should be able to succeed.

ScrambledEggs, I really admire you for being there for your sick friend. A lot of people would back out at some point, but not you. You must be a great friend and I'm sure your friend is proud of you. It's also good to hear she's cancer free. That really makes it worth, right? 
Life is short and something like that can turn your world upside down..

I also hope you and your mom work things out. Having fights with your mother always sucks.

Thanks Linde, for the words of encouragement and everything else. :-)

I am happy I was there for her and helped out as much as I could, but it's really her everyone should be proud of. She was really tough throughout the whole process. 
As for my mum, I don't think we'll ever work things out completely. We're in a constant fight. That's another way of life, I suppose.

Of course. I always admire those people too. I mean, if I had cancer, I would break down completely. I truly believe that having the will to fight helps.

Ah I know that, I'm the same with my dad. We just can't get along and I just despise him. Oh well.

After binging on It's All Too Much, I've stopped for lunch in Checotah, OK. Can you name a famous person from this town?

Well, obviously, there's Samuel Checote, the first leader of the Creek Nation after the Civil War. The town was named after him.

Then there's Mel McDaniel, the country star from the '80s. Or could you be thinking of Paul Henry Carr, who was posthumously awarded the Silver Star for his actions during the Battle off Samur. But then there's Woody Crumbo, the Potawatomi artist. But you are a librarian, so you could well be thinking of the Pulitzer winning war correspondent, Jim G. Lucas. But it might be you're a fan of the Detroit Lions and thinking of NFL linebacker Tracey Scroggins. Then there's always US X-Factor winner Carrie Underwood...

I have an entrance examination soon so I'm a bit stressed. It would be really nice if I got accepted in the university. I have plan B so I'm not overly worried about this. I should do something important with my life.... go to school or work. It's So Hard... You can't have a job if you are uneducated! Or maybe I'm unlucky! I felt total panic about this matter and I thought I'm no use to my society a-hard-days-night-ringo-4

My Valentine's Day was extra "happy" because my boyfriend left me :) Wonderful! Not! He had no feelings anymore. We are friends now and he's acting really weird sometimes. Like he still likes me or something like that...

Is that anywhere near Chickasha, OK?

One of my favourite albums of the '70s was Static Disposal, by Debris'. They were from Chickasha.

@Von Bontee, Chickasha is very close to where I live. I go through it when I drive to Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and beyond (anywhere not in the direction of Texas basically). Checotah is much further from me.

Cool!

The album was actually recorded in OKC, in December of '75.

The plane I am on is taxiing to the terminal gate. I just saw the Empire State building and the Statue of Liberty out the window.

My handyman just got rid of an old "Frigid Aire" motor in one of my shelves. My building's so old, I essentially still had an icebox in the kitchen. So glad to have the extra storage space.

I'm making another mix. Well, it doesn't mix songs so technically it isn't. It's more of a compilation.
