  1. 13. Talking loud, not saying much.

    It's always a bit of a shock

    when I do something wrong.

    Glass slips, glass breaks. I hear the sound echo without resolve. I stare at the glass, I soak in liquid. I stare at the glass. Someone watches, and nudges forth a broom. I well up in embarrassment. I stare at the glass. I carry the broom heavy, I clean the mess. I get angry at being fallible. I stare at what once was. I dry off. I explain I didn't need a drink of water, I wasn't thirsty. And then I reach for

    “Let everything happen to you

    Beauty and terror

    Just keep going

    No feeling is final.”

    ― Rainer Maria Rilke

    The arresting defeat of the swell seems less a victory than ever. The harsh morning air cutting against the sacks of lung shivering for breath. The sky blue and the motions unnerving, my balance in question as the city moved around me. I see faces rush past, some held in gaze, of other people lost at sea and

    Pulled from a post that I now took it off

    So I got 3x A- ....

    CHEM205 84% (damn so close to an A!) PHAL211 81% and BIOC221 80%

    Also from summer school so far this year I have MATH151 96%

    The A- curse!! I get so many A-'s in assignments, final grades - it is just unreal. Hopefully I can break this curse and get a few more A's or A+ next semester.

    So I feel a bit :| just realising how much I will have to work - and regretting not taking another 100 level paper this semester.

    Hey so I've used this site quite a bit but thought I might post a few Qs/my story.

    I'm at Otago, I'm originally from the UK, I did 6th & 7th form in the UK which included NO maths, physics or Chem :S I just took Human biology, arts and social sciences. Had 3 years break in which I did personal training stuff, moved to NZ and then decided to do HSFY. I'm also dyslexic.

    So HSFY was HARD especially without a strong science background and I didn't go into a hall either. ...
