my wonderful exam results… (sarcasm)

21 Aug

Oh hey there sexual interwebbers!
How has everyone’s week/two weeks been? I haven’t been on the net recently, sure you’ve missed me.. lol, hashtag-sarcasm.
So this week (well, last week now..) I got my exam results, like most of the people in the UK. Oh dear. And like most of you beings, I was laying bricks the two weeks leading up the date of doooom (august 16th to be exact). So, the night before was the deciding what I was going to do before my exam results. I decided, no make-up and leggings, just in case I had to run home and sit under my duvet. So I get my results and I was secretly quite happy, because I knew all of the answers for the exams that I took. So I get my little brown envelope (the little brown parcels of hate) and went to my car where my mum was waiting for me, and on passing my friends we did the whole oh good luck! Spiel, got in my car and opened the little flap and pulled out the white sheet of doom (am I building the tension yet? 😉 ) and look at it. I read the big letters down the page, and burst into tears. Not the good kind. Turns out the exams that I had been so ok about, thinking that I would get great results and do myself justice, were based on false hope. DDDDC. Now, in GCSE, I got all As and A*s (not meaning to gloat) so getting this on my A levels when even in class I get like As on my homeworks, I was so shocked. One of the Ds was in general studies which is like the multiple choice exam that you don’t have a lesson on and then write an essay (the multiple choice were simple comprehension questions and the essay was based on soap operas…) in 2 different exams: culture; and science and technology (they only asked us about plastic bags- GCSE chemistry basically, but simplified) and in one of them I got an A, and in the other I got an E, levelling out to a D, and I was quite shocked, because all year the teachers and students were like, yeah general studies is the one exam that youre garenteed a good score in, an idiot could pass it- well, obviously not for me! Haha. But yeah- the others I was quite shocked about as well (RE+philosophy (kind of- I don’t have a good essay technique), human biology (I got a C, dispite knowing all of the answers?), and psychology (again, knew all of the answers?). to be pretty honest to you, Im not shocked or surprised on my D in german- I finished the exam an hour early and just did ip-dip-doo on all of the listening questions which were multiple choice!. But there you go. That’s my exam results. And now I need to think of something else to do in the future. I originally wanted to go to dental school, but didn’t do A-level chem, then decided that I could get my degree in dental hygiene and therapy then go on to a full dental course, but that needs BBB, which I don’t have right now and need to apply in October (that reminds me- I need to write my personal statement- crap!). what else can I do?! Also, I am taking my SATs in november to see if I can go to an American dental school- I just need to ace it, it’s all multiple choice, and only one very tiny essay, so I should be fine!- which has always been my plan any way –my parents weren’t too keen on the idea, but now that I wont get into a school in England which they wanted, they’ve kind of given in hashtag lol- wooo studying…. Haha.
How did everyone else’s results go? Ive spoken to a lot of people (well, a lot being some on my friends, so objectively not really a lot, and they didn’t do too good either. I don’t understand why they’re being so harsh on marking exams and making the grade boundries so hard and making the exams so full of content which is like impossible- don’t they want kids to do well?!- and its just unfair on the students that aren’t like child protégés who sit at home learning 10 instruments and living in a library because we probably wont get in to the university we want, dispite the fact that we probably are not the top people but not dipshites either. Grrr. Hate the british school system. Does anyone else agree? If you want more of my ranting, I have done two previous blogs on school and exams 😉
In better news, IM GOING TO THE BEACH TOMORROW WOO!! And I go a new school backpack- im going to be the coolest person everrr! 😉
Oh- by the way- follow me on instagram- @RachaelHannahx3 , im always posting pictures (especially of my cat, if you like cats…) and tumblr; http://www.peace-love-camera.tumblr.com and ask me something (come on, don’t be boring 😉 ) again, lots of pictures of my cat… and my twitter- @Rachaelhannahx3 so get connecting with meee!! 😀
So yeaaah- if anyone has anything to add to this topic of exam results (by the way- I haven’t really told my friends what I got on my results, so you guys better feel privileged 😉 ) comment below!
And im sad now that the Olympics are over- im back to watching come dine with me all day every day… hashtag-no life
Ok bye!!

Olympicos amigos.

6 Aug

Good evening my interweb friends!
How is everyone today? Im great!
So what is everyone thinking about these things going on right now? You might have heard of them- its called the Olympics. And I, as an Englander like a few others in the world, am very excited about the Olympics 😀 I was there at the opening ceremony- well, not really; I was in my pyjamas with a cup of tea and a blanket on the couch for the 10,000 hours it felt that the countries were walking in (half of which I had never heard of in my life), and I was thinking at the end (at 2am when I had to be at work at 9-oops!) thinking about it and what I had just witnessed, for what would be the only time in my life, they say. At first, when I saw the opening ceremony, I couldn’t help –like many others- comparing it to the opening ceremony in china 4 years ago (I saw the highlights- bloody hell it was sparkly) and felt like, “that was it?”. But when talking about it with my friendlings over coffee (yes, we are sophisticated 😉 ) it kind of dawned on me how spectacular it was. See, England is one of the many countries which has a true history, and I think we were right to choose to honor that and show it to the world, and not give in to the pressure to put on a big avent garde song and dance. I just hope people from other countries understood the concept and were able to learn something from it, but sadly, from the people I have spoken to, they have not. But the actual games themselves are amazing. I have pretty much sat on my couch with my bi-daily (is that a word?) punnet of blueberries watching the gymnastics (my favourite!) and the diving and the swimming and the basketball (also my favourite) and ive just been in awe of everything, and it takes a while to take it in. all of the athletes giving everything to their 10seconds or so to win something for their country, and how they have trained all day every day for year, just to take part in that one race, or to do that one gym routine and its so amazing and incredible how people from all around the world can come together, forget all differences and conflicts in the world, and just come together to take part in friendly sporting events. Its mind blowing, but also humbling at the same time.
However, there was one incident on twitter (if you haven’t followed me yet- please do 😉 @RachaelHannahx3) during the opening ceremony that really got to me. It shouldn’t, but it did. Now, I am British, with American citizenship, and a jew. So I am impartial to countries, but I have that special support for team GB, Team USA and Team Israel (I have a lot of friends in Israel) and when I was on twitter, you know, when people make a comment on every country that walked in like “who are they?” “where the hells that country?” “love their sexy outfits” (they all looked like air hostesses- like you see in the virgin atlantic commercials? I couldn’t get past it :L) but when it got to Israel, I was like WOOO YEAAAH ISRAEL, as you do, but some people on twitter were like “Israel, I spit at them” and “f*ck off you pieces of sh*t!” and other very not nice things, and I was like, how could one person, who has had no personal offence towards them from the whole country, take such a hate to a certain group of people from a certain place?? It was so disrespectful, and kind of made me lose hope in many parts of the human race, and it was just disgusting. Ok that’s my spiel.
So yeah- im going to be so upset when the Olympics are over (I still haven’t gotten tickets D: ) because it seems that the weeks leading up to the Olympics and while the Olympics are here, England is such a happy place. Especially living so close to London, everyone is on such a high right now, with all of the towns being decorated with 2012 stuff and its just so cute- whats going to happen when everyone goes home? Its going to be so so depressing 😦
Well- enjoy your summer guys! (im still waiting for my first hot day so I can go to the beach for like the first time in years!) I’ll see you next week!! 😉
Again- follow me on twitter @RachaelHannahx3
And I’ve just joined this new craze thing that’s going on on twitter right now? Its called ask.fm, It seems like that formspring thing people (admittedly, I had it, too, as you know :P) so if you want to ask me any questions (no barriers, no such thing as a stupid question!) just shoot it this way- http://ask.fm/RachaelHannahh
Ok see you next week 🙂
(I like that smiley. You should never deprive (is that the right word?) a smiley of its nose.

what do you think about the olympics?? comment below 😉

why the future scares me

25 Jul

hello bloggie friendy wordpressy lovelies!!
sorry i havent blogged in a while, been so busy with school and work its been like a hurricane going off in my brain, which already cant handle many of the everyday tasks that come at a person (im a bit, some say, “slow” haha), but that is, as said by many, down to my physical and psychological blonde nature 😉 but there you go.
so what’s been bothering me, and probably many other people in the Uk right now, if not, the world (thats a scary thought) is the thought of university apps. im going into my final year of 6th form, and i have had the idea of going to university and knowing exactly what i want to do shoved at me every year, but especially this year. i think in the space of a month, i had about 4 full school says, just devoted to higher education, and some people just need to sit back and be like, wtf.
so dont get me wrong, i want to go to university more than anything, you know, freedom, a career, new friends, living alone, partying, no parents telling me im not allowed to go out at certain times, and that sounds like such an awesome concept, which ive been looking forward to my whole life (well, from the age which i knew what university WAS), but, what i dont get, is if the world wanted to many people with careers and having proper training and usable skills, why make university to competitive?!
the course i want to do, dental hygiene and therapy, is an awesome course (i wouldnt get onto the proper dentistry course as i dont have an A level in chemistry-boo), and you come out of it with a decent starting salary (about 40,000), but what i dont get is the few people that they actually accept onto a course. like, portsmouth, por examplé, only take 16 people out of like 500 applicants, and im like, how the hell am i going to compete with 500 people for a spot??!! im not THAT smart, but i could get the BBB requirements.
like, if people were so into there being people in all of these career sections, then why make it so fricken competitive that no-one will be able to get on?? i just think its rediculous. so i’ll just be a full time tweeting, blogging, cupcake decorating freelance photographer and see how that goes. why not?
i understand why university is meant to be like an amazing thing, but its not cut out for everyone. some people just need to take a step back and just do what the hell they want.(so i can get that place in a dental hygiene course ;))
so yeah, anyone else got any problems/worries about universities they want to discuss? i’ll be more than happy to discuss it with you! just post below! 😉
oh, and about my blogging habits, i’ll try to blog about once a week now that summers in (schools out- yay!!) so watch this space! 😉
if you’ve got twitter then follow me on @RachaelHannahx3 or @RachaelSays_ and if some of you interweb users are very hi-tech, then follow me on tumblr; wwww.peace-love-camera.tumblr.com ( but you’ll need to teach me how to use it as it seems ive only been reblogging pictures of cats, hashtag-foreveralone). so ask me something or follow meeee! 😉 also or my pretty snaps, http://www.flickr.com/RachaelHannahx3
ok thats my spiel done, just wanted to get that out there so i can connect with my blogging friends 24/7 😉 (im a pro stalker. ok only kidding!)
i promise next blog will be funnier, i just wanted to get this out there 😉
so yeh if you have anything to add to this, comment below!! 😀
byeee!!! ❤

Bitches on the Internet

17 May

Good evening!!
Well, as always I’m sorry for not gracing you with my presence, but if you are one of my English/British readers, then you will know full well that may = exam time, and for me, that means 9 AS level exams. (don’t worry I’ve already blogged about why exams piss me off. Take a read)
So today i had my German speaking exam. And one of the topics I had to be asked about was friendship, and false friends and online bullying. Now this is quite a good topic for me, and I have lots of experience in these fields, sadly, including the latter.
My best friend is my world. I’m just going to put that out there. Weve been best friends since the first day of year 7, so 5 years ago, and we’re still best friends, I love her to pieces. And I have lots of friends. They’re all great and stuff, but what I fail to understand (and someone explain to me if I’m being naive) is why some people choose to be fake friends with someone.
Like you see it all the time in like movies and stuff… And you’re like, oh that’ll never happen to me. Then it does. I was best friends with this one girl, and she was like my sister, we were like that close, and there was this other friend, and they used to be best friends before I knew my best friend, and they got really close again, and it turned out that the other girl was a fake friend to me to get my best friend. And I’m like, dude, whyyyyy?? Like, what’s the point. Honestly. What is the purpose. I know I’m the coolest person in this whole fricken universe (I am. Ask my mum) but come in, grow up. Like, what benefit do people get out of it. I can’t lie like a simple lie about like what I had for lunch to my friends, never mind be fake friends with someone for LOLs. Yeah k weirdos.
Another thing which is pretty annoying, is like people, especially girls, (sorry to be sexist, but it’s true…) feel like beefcakes on the Internet. They’re like, oh look at that bitch’s photo. She looks like she’s been attacked by a sponge covered in orange paint. Or “oh look at her. She’s only got like 100 friends hashtag-foreveralone” and like in reality, they’re a scrawny little 12 year old who couldn’t fight a cold. Like, seriously. And how girls feel they can say mean things to others over the Internet, and it’s ok. Uh, no. If anything it makes you look like a shy loser. I mean everyone’s done it, I’ll admit that, but I don’t go to the extent that some girls go.
So about 3 years ago, I had this thing called formspring, which was like totally popular then, and for you younger readers who shouldn’t have bee surfing the net 3-4 years ago, it’s basically a site where you make a profile and people can ask you questions, either by their profile or anonymously (I have no idea how to spell that :3). So I was like dude yeah this is fun send some funny questions to my friends like “what’s your favourite powerpuff girl hashtag-90skid” and theyd be like “dude that’s fricken harsh” but then I started getting questions, which, to defeat the point, weren’t actually, questions. They were just comments people had about me that they were too chickensh*t to tell me to my face or even Facebook me about. It started about like I was short, or I was ugly, or I was the third wheel in that mess I told you about earlier, but then people started telling me that they wish hitler had killed my family, and it was a shame they survived, and that people wished that I would die, and making fun of my jewish nose asking me if it hurts or if I could breathe (yes, that did make my chuckle) and when i was getting a nose job and stuff, and hope my family all get in this big accident and die or something like that. And I was like who the hell is this. How disgusting for someone to say something like that to another person, and the whole hitler thing was way too far (I’d already been picked on before for being the only Jewish person in my school) and theres just no need for it, because I honestly think that I am a genuinely nice person. I smile at everyone, I’m friendly blah blah blah, so why do that to someone?
I just think its wrong, that’s all. What do you think? Give,e your wisdom! 🙂
Sorry this is so morbid and dull. I had a really good idea about something to write, but as I started writing I forgot. (I know, I’m totally clueless)
Write to you soon hopefully!! 🙂
Comment below if you agree/disagree/have something to add. 😉

Love you! :*

Carrot cake.

Profile pictures that annoy me.

29 Apr

 

 
Good evening world! How’s It going? 😉
So today, on my very productive Sunday (I was supposed to be working, but got someone to cover my shift because I was too lazy to work hashtag-lazyass) I spent the majority of my time on my couch in my fluffy blanket and pjs snooping around social network sites, hashtag-stalker. so when on Facebook, and not just today, on pretty much every encounter I have with the outside world via the Internet, I notice a trend with people’s profile photos. Now, this is a topic that pisses me off to the extreme. Want to know why? People are whores. Sorry, but it has to be said.  
Now, my profile picture is just me and my friend, from when we got dressed up to go out one day, just simple and real, but when everyone else is on Facebook, they feel it completely necessary to slut themselves up and take a photo at a random ass angle, mainly focusing on their chest, (if they’re a girl that is), and making themselves look like a total motherf’in slut for people theyll probably never even meet in their life,or for people who know what they look like, and know pretty damn well they’re not that plastic little spastic they believe they are. 
Like, even though you’re probably about 14 and have like no experience whatsoever, you deem it cool to straighten your hair to like a fricken …dead thing (I couldn’t think of anything else ha) and put on about 15 inches of foundation and powder and crap then get the biggest pushup bra ever, then stuff it with tissues, and wear the most revealing top in the world. Like, if you went out on the street looking like that,people would ask you how much you charge. Like, dude, your 14 put a fricken turtle neck on. 
Also, they dont think it’s a good idea for people to recognise them by their face (if it’s even recognisable from the amount of paint you plastered yourself in) but for the picture to be a shot from a slightly high angle, focusing on their non existent -or fake- chest. Like, oh yeah! I know who you are by that chest! Uh, no. 
And then they all pull the same pose. It’s either the hand cupping the ear and the duck pout, or the arm like in a snooty handbag-on-the-elbow pose with the duck pout, or it’s the yum let me nibble on my fingers and then look like I’m about to cry pose. Like, seriously, be original.
Another thing I don’t get, is when girls, and guys, just take a random picture in the mirror with a pouting face on their Nokia or blackberry or other crappy overrated phone, and what’s worse,is they don’t like to look into the mirror, they’re looking at the phone, and most of the time you can’t even see they’re ugly whorelike face because the fricken phones in the way. Mm, attractive hashtag-sarcasm. But what makes me laugh the most is when people take said photos in bathrooms or other random places and you’re like mm, toilet… Ha. 
And one thing that just annoys me to like the brink of… Annoyance(?)… Is when people like badly edit their pictures and put like words, like omg best boif fo evahhh an a daaiii ‘xo mwaaa baybehhh ❤ like, get me a bucket,its so fricken tacky.
And people who make their pictures like cars or strippers and youre like, oh yeah, that’s exactly what you look like…. 
So Yeaaah, that’s what grinds my….things.. that.. grind…(?) (I’m really bad with the comparisons thing tonight…) . Please enlighten me on why people do this??
 
See you tomorrow! 😉 keep looking sexual on Facebook kids! 😉
Don’t forget the pouty face!

Why I want to hit exams in the face.

28 Apr

Oh hey! Sorry for my recent absence from my blogging life, (if I even have one!) but I’ve been really busy, and that brings up what i want to talk about today…
…exams.
Now, for my British readers especially, exams are a big pain in the butt. Like high fat contents foods and long waiting, but much worse. 
So most of you, if you go to secondary school, will be experiencing GCSEs/A-levels. I’m in year 12 and im doing my A levels (yeah, duh) German, psychology, human biology and re/philosophy to be exact. I know. Ew.
So, as I go to a grammar school, all teachers ever seem to go on about is exams and results and blah blah blah blah. You know what I’m talking about? Cool.
So, I was casually sitting with the year 7s in my mentor group, which is basically just 20 minutes a day of mixed age group crap and they got these exam time tables, then the year 8s did, and I was like what the muffins is going on? Like dude, when I did year 7 and 8 I did f-all in all of my subjects- and now they’re taking exams?? Bull. And also, year 8s in my school are starting their language GCSEs and I’m like dude, when I was year 8 I probably knew how to say like a few simple sentences, and I’m sitting there trying to help some of them get through their speaking and writing exams, like a good sixth former that I am, and they’re all talking about verb endings and the dative and like conditional phrases and I’m like wtf is that. Like, what?!
When I was a kid -well, at that age- life was about having fun and doing nothing in lessons and making your teachers cry (my class got a count of 80% before we separated…) and now they’re shoving knowledge and exams down their tummies and it’s just not fun. Dude.
Another thing about exams…
…I don’t know why they have a time limit. I honestly don’t. When they do that, they’re basically asking you to show how much you can write in an allotted about of time, not completely the knowledge. Like, I could write a banging philosophy essay,  and it’ll take me about an hour or so just to make sure that I get everything in the right order and that is neat and grammatically correct and I can think it through blah blah blah and in 2 weeks I have to write 4 essays in like 2.5 hours and it’s like what the hell. So no matter how smart you are, if you’re a slow writer, you’re screwed. Please explain this to me, I’m not even kidding. It’s like, you’re not going to magically cheat the answer if you sit there for 3 hours compared to 2 like, how does it help? It doesn’t. And even if they did need to time exams, why dont they give it realistic timings?? Like, in my re/philosophy exam, I have 37.5 minutes (yes, 37.5 what a pisstake number) on each side, and I have 24 minutes to write a factual essay, AO1, then TWELVE minutes to write an evaluation essay, AO2. Now how I am meant to do it and make it good in twelve minutes I have NO idea. I mean, give us some realistic timings dude.
And then no matter how well you try you see your teachers once you get your results, and they’re like “good try” and it’s like the most patronising thing anyone can ever say to you, like they’re basically saying, well done for giving it a go, but you’re sh*t. Niiice. Why bother?
Anyone else share my annoyance?? Comment below.
Blog you again soon!

Technology sucks.

16 Apr

Good evening bloggers, and blog readers…

So today I want to talk about this magical invention some of you might have heard of. It’s called technology. And what I want to talk about specifically, is why it fricken hates me.
Now, I’m a 17 year old, and a good portion of my “disposable income” (well, what’s left of my minimum wage that’s not been spent of Starbucks everyday and clothes that I’ll never actually wear…) goes towards buying new technology. So my dad (when he’s not working 24/7 doing god knows what) spends a lot of his time on technology, too, so I’ve always grown up having the newest and best technology going, my favourite collection being every game boy and Pokemon game produced, but that’s just me. And recently, it’s started to dawn on me that technology sucks. In spend about £20-£30 a month on updating or new technology. My latest rip off was a Bluetooth keyboard for my iPad. (I’ll get to the iPad later.) now, it wasn’t expensive, and therefore I don’t expect much and I’m not that picky or anything, but if I do expect one thing, thats for it to work. I opened the box, after the delivery already being like 3 days late, and hooked it up. It worked for about an hour, then it slowly stopped. (the hint was when the word ‘evolution’ became ‘en’. Yeah, a slight give away I know) and I thought ok, it must be out of charge. So I put it on charge, and 24 hours later, I try again, and it’s not working, other than the occasional ‘e’ then it stops working again (I’m fighting for the company for a refund.). Fun stuff, I know. And surely if there’s this new, wonderful technology that’s like sending people and robots into outer space and making like phones that plug into your head, then the concept of a keyboard, which was discovered like, a hundred or more years ago should be pretty fricken easy. Obviously not.
And about my iPad… I bought it in the summer, and every time I try to sync it up to my computer, all of my apps just break and I can’t use them. And then I have to reset my iPad to factory settings, then restore it to my settings and my photos blah blah blah (my iPads called splat, by the way, in case anyone was interested…) and it’s just a nightmare. Now if I’m spending like £450 on some machine smaller than a piece of paper, then I fricken expect it to do what it’s supposed to do. And worse, I just go onto the apple website, and they ask me to PAY to ask them a simple question- here’s exactly that they say, and I quote: ” Based on the information we have for your product, you may need to purchase a single incident of support or an AppleCare Protection Plan to speak with an Advisor. ”  are they fricken KIDDING ME? They’ve got to be kidding.they’re kidding me. Seriously.
But what’s more of a piss take is blackberry. Now blackberry is a pretty well known, and widely used phone producer, but the quality and service of the blackberry handset is shocking. I’ve had my blackberry storm (the slider one that looks like a traditional slide phone got sat on) for exactly a year now, and every month, without fail, it breaks. The camera never works, and the Internet doesnt work, and recently it’s stopped sending my texts all together. And if I’m paying monthly, I expect to get what I pay for. Gosh darnit.
I mean, dude, I am so unlucky when it comes to technology. I’m on my second laptop in a year (and even that ones broken) and its just ridiculous how crappy technology for really simple things are these days. I want to go back to the days of the brick Nokia where entertainment is playing snake in black and white. Llamas, that was the best, and I’m sure if I started that phone up itd work. Even after being thrown again a brick wall. And chewed. And dropped in the toilet. And god knows what else.
Oh and my Internet never works. 
Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just me?
Ok night! :* 

(And yes, I’m slowly typing this on my iPad while giving my crappy not working keyboard the evil eye, and contemplating the temptation of it exiting my room via the window.)

Muffins.
