I had a birthday on Tuesday. My sixteenth, to be precise - but who's counting. It was technicallyot a birthday, as I was not born. It was the sixteenth anniversary of my birth...
16 seems to be a big thing legally - I can now:
- Buy alcohol with a meal
- Buy lottery tickets
- Learn to drive a motorbike on the road
- Smoke (like I'd want to do that)
- Compete in some cash-prize competitions/sweepstakes
But more surprising is the list of things I can't do, including:
- Enter Blue Peter competitions
- Enter various other competitions
Chemistry on Monday was hard - which was unexpected after the relatively easy Biology paper we had :|
They asked a 5-mark question on detection and identification of ions - and the compounds all contained sulphate ions (so you had to detect it by the cat ion). And they were hardly easy tests to remember.
Plus they asked a load of questions on esterification, the details of which are not covered in the revision book (Normally this would be excusable, but the fact that the book states categorically that "This book tells you everyhting you need to know for the exan, and nothing else" pisses me off)
History and Welsh revision today. I cannot express my joy at the fact that I have a Welsh exam tomorrow. Words cannot tell the joy that I am feeling. Put in the [sarcasm] tags if you feel them necessary. But looking on the bright side, after tomorrow I can forget every word of Welsh I ever learned. I've already started to do that with English (English 2 was on Monday too!!)
Thankfully, the History 1 exam (which they had to go and put on my birthday, didn't they) wasn't too bad - the questions were pretty fair. Which probably means that the USA paper is going to be a stinker. Hmm :S
