Wow, a lot of good news lately!
I got my first grade back, for Dutch class. I scored 81/100 points!
This is double as awesome as usual for me, since we had to do a written argument, which is basically a piece of text made to convince someone of your point of view. That's a bit of a weak spot for me when it comes to Dutch class. I scored a 40/100 last year, which is a failing grade, being 20 points short of a passing one. But this year, I pretty much doubled my grade!
I also got my grade for Art class, which is 60/100: a passing one with an extremely critical teacher, who partially bases her grades on how much she likes a student. I'm kind of hoping the History teacher gives us our grades early too: we were supposed to find out what we scored on the tests on the 2nd of December. But I could get used to grades like these!
Combined with me not suffering any test-related anxiety before, during, or after the test week really makes me feel awesome. I hope the next test week is going to turn out just as great as this one.
I'm also going to Brussels, a city in Belgium, for the weekend!
My dad's in another country for his job again, and he had to go there for three months. Since my coworkers really support me and my mom providing a supporting function for my dad, they bought us a free weekend in a hotel of choice in Belgium, Luxemburg, or right here in the Netherlands. Mom and me went for Brussels, because there's a Christmas market and a comic book museum: something we're both curious about. We're going by car, and I'm really looking forward to it.
However, this means I won't be online this weekend. I'll try and get to my contest submissions and my replies before I go, and of course I'll be posting a journal about the mischief I was up to in Belgium!
