Writing about web page http://bookcrossing.com/journal/2654254
I listen to the radio while revising and they were talking about Freecycling so In a break I went and had a look at that site. That then reminded me of BookCrossing which is where you leave books in places and register that on the site, then when people find them they go and say that they find it then the cycle goes on. I left one book in my Doctors Surgery waiting room, in Maidstone, and it was picked up and taken camping with someone in their VM Campervan. It has now been released again in a Dentist Surgery in Maidstone but hasn’t been seen for 11 months. I wonder if it’s still there?
Well, back to revision. 2 exams tomorrow, one on Friday and another 2 on Saturday.
Not nice but at least it gets half my exams out of the way quickly :)

Late in two ways. I have just got up and this is a stupidly late time to get up (1:40). The reason is that I went to Skool Dayz yesterday and managed to stay until the very end at 2am. It was a struggle as my body was still in exam mode. I.e. getting me up at 7am and expecting me to go to bed at 12.
So I got up at 7:30 yesterday and then didn't go to bed until 2:30. I was yawning like mad but was determined to make it to the end of Skool Dayz.
Now I just have to get my body back into it's normal mode of going to bed at 2 and getting up at 10/11.

I had my last exam today so now it's all over until next year. Let the summer commence.
I'm not to happy about the exam but I won't dwell on it. A max mark of 35% is expected in that one, but oh well.
I saw the best text ever when I checked my phone after the exam. It went like this:
O2 Weather: FRI. 25 to 15c sun. SAT. 28 to 17c sun. SUN. 28 to 18c sun. MON. 27 to 18c sun. TUE. 33 to 22c sun. WED. 31 to 21c sun. THUR. 32 to 22c sun.
Now if that isn't summer I don't know what is. In past years you would have missed that by being stuck in school but now I can do what I like and enjoy the nice weather.
Bring on the nice cold beers and nice hot weather.

For some reason lately I've been really restless. I can't keep doing one thing for more that a couple of minutes before I get bored and stop. That doesn't help revising for this last exam, especially as I don't really follow any of it and really should have dropped this module while I had the chance. Oh well, I'll just have to go into the exam and do the best I can with the little that I understand.
Does everyone have a feel–good song that, nomatter what, makes you feel good. Mine is Mark Schultz – Your are a Child of Mine. It just lifts me up, whatever I feel like, with some good loud singing. Sorry if I've disturbed anyone by singing along :P. Have a listen here if you're interested.

I am now half way through my exams for this summer. After having 2 today I have done 3 and only have another 3 to go. One on Monday morning, one on Tuesday afternoon and the final one on Friday morning, then FREEDOM.
I was quite happy with the ones today, and even quite enjoyed the 2nd one (DIS). I mean, 11 marks just for running Dijkstras Algorithm on a graph. I also quite enjoy linear programming because you at least feel like you are doing something worthwhile. I don't care if a sat of values in countable infinite or not or what the hell x equals. In linear programming at least you are making something the seems usefull, like a transport plan or a way to maximise profit. I know there are many things missing from the simplified problems, but hey, enough ranting.
I went to Tesco this afternoon and as it was so nice and sunny I took the long route that brings you back by the Rootes lake. There were many duck, come ducklings and some goslings.
Isn't nature beautiful.
Anyway, now it's time to revise for COA and Introduction To Philosophy

Even though the weekend is just like every other day at the moment it is still harder to do revision at the weekend. It's also annoying that Simon and Nat have finished their exams and so have 4 weeks to do whatever they like.
I am the last person to finish on the corridoor and possibly the last person in this house. I finish on Friday 9th June at 11am.
Mark who is just across the corridoor from me finishes on Thursday 1st and is treatening to throw–up outside my my room every night for the next weeks after that.
Just to make everything worse Tesco did take the £35 the next time I used my card. It makes me wonder what they would have done if I had never used my card there again.
Anyways. Enough time wasting, back to attempt to at–least get this chaper revised.

Today I have my first exam of this term. I had a Stats Lab one last term but this is the first one this term. I am quite happy with this one as it is Java and was one of the most fun modules in term 1.
I then have another one tomorrow so after this one I don't get a break I have to continue revising for that one. It's Maths so I'm not as happy with that one as it isn't my strongest point.
After that though my next exam is in week 7 so I will have plenty of time to relax a bit after that exam before the others come rushing up.
