I was surfing the site of my university and found an announcement that they are thinking about changing the rules for the additional common law programm that I am taking part in. Before, there was allways a final written and oral exam at the end of the two year program. Now, they want to just use the grades we got over the course of the two years and have an oral exam focusing on our ability to speak English freely. How awesome would that be! No repeating stuff I already forgot again, no written exam in which my poor spelling drags me down. Just passing all the normal finals with a good grade and half an hour of talking. I can talk. And I can totally read fic and chat with my aunt and claim it is preparation. I am so happy!! Cross your fingers for me so they really change the rules!

OK, so I just had an extra lecture and our prof reminded us to be on time for the final- on Thursday. Wtf? Finals are in the first week of February. But apparently, she had told us at the beginning of terms, when I was too distracted/ tired/ bored/ stupid to listen, that ours was early. Now I´m trying to figure out if that is a good thing. On the one hand, I am not really prepared. On the other hand, it means one less final in February. I think I´m going to go with positive, since it is just a two hour essay that I couldn´t really study for, anyway. Shoudn´t be to horrible, since apart from my spelling, my English isn´t that bad.


And since everyone was doing it...

A – Accent : none, except of course when I speak English
B - Breakfast Item: cereal
C - Chore you hate: dishes
D – Father’s name: Helmut
E – Essential everyday items: glasses/ contacts, cell phone

G - Gold or Silver? silver
H - Hometown: Münster, according to some weird competition the most beatiful city in the world. I like it here, but I definitely disagree. We don´t have an ocean, so it´s impossible.

J - Job Title: Student
K - Kids: No, my sibs are enough, thank you very much
L - Living arrangements: best student-appartment ever!!
M - Mom's birthplace: little village named Verl, actually a farm somewhat near the little village

P - Phobia: hights
Q – Queer: no
R - Religious Affiliation: officially Catholic
S - Siblings: My brother Max is 12, my sister Lisa is ten. I was told I have a half-sister somewhere who should be around 28, but I don´t know anything about her.
T - Time you wake up: just in time to get ready for class
U - Unnatural hair colors you've worn: red
V - Vegetable you refuse to eat: espargus. I think my mom sometimes almost hates me a little for that one.
W - Worst habit: overanalizing everything
X - X-rays you’ve had: head, spine
Y – Yummy : besides Ben...don´t tell anyone, put I used to have a wierd thing for Frank´n´Furter

So, I finally caved in and got myself an account. Mainly, I will use it to post my fic and to be able to comment on other peoples stories properly. I guess I`ll just have to wait and see how long I can last until my lack of computer skills causes my inevidable downfall.
