Well, my mid-year exams are now all done. I think that exams are the stupidest thing ever... Whoever invented them should be shot... in the foot :P
...erm... Yeah, anyway..... For our maths exams (Specialist Maths, and Maths Methods), we have a 2-hour exam where we can use a calculator, and a 1-hour calculator-free exam.
These are the exams I did:
- English - Bah, the English exam was stupid. We needed to write three essays in two hours! Having said that, I got a B on that exam (and I thought I was going to fail it :P)
- Physics - Physics was alright (I quite like Physics). The exam was actually just questions that were cut and pasted from various revision books! I got an A+ on this exam.
- Specialist Maths - This was hard, it involved maths stuff such as partial fractions, Circle theorems, and other stuff. If there's one maths area I hate, it's circle theorems! Having said that, I got an A+ on this exam
- Maths Methods - This was easy! Maths Methods is incredibly easy compared to Specialist Maths. I got 97% in the calculator-active test (the highest in the class). This involved stuff like quadratics, cubics, quartics, solving equasions, etc, etc. The overall mark was an A+
- Chemistry - This was the one exam I was dreading (I'm not really that good at chemistry). Nevertheless, I got a B on this exam (which I'm quite happy with)
Yeah... That's all my exams...
In other news, someone recently spammed the CWH Networks forum:
It took me the whole of 2 minutes to clean all that up. Seriously, when will these spammers learn? Geez! :D
Well, after bidding for 6 different TI-89 Titanium calculators on eBay, I finally got a TI-89 Titanium! I'm so happy now :D
I bought this one from my local Cash Converters :P.
Man, I love this calculator :)
The TI-89 Titanium:
Now, I'm not sure what's shown in that picture of the calculator, but I suppose it doesn't matter. It still is a cool calculator 8)
Hey look, I changed the blog so it now uses WordPress! That MKPortal Blog thingy was getting annoying...
So... Yeah... That's all for now :)
Well, some people have been asking me about my signature image... In case you haven't seen it, here you go:
Nice, huh? :) Seeing as I have no graphics skill whatsoever, I thought it would be nice to make something more technical.
I have a 'Hosted Signature' service, where someone can download my signature client, and have a signature similar to my one. If you ask me, I may give you a signature like this. Note that this is only for people that I know, I don't want random people asking me for signatures and stuff :P
Well, I though I'd better write a post about how the ICT Fellowship went (which was about 3 weeks ago)
It was quite good actually, I learned a bit about Blender (a 3D application) as well as some things about software development (I already knew quite a lot though, as you would probably know). A few of the other things I learned were:
- During times when lots of visitors come to Melbourne (such as the 2006 Commonwealth Games), trams are really crowded... On one of the days, I happened to miss the tram, and the next one after it was so crowded it wasn't funny :D
- It's impossible to get lost in Melbourne's CBD. Even though I don't go into the city much, I could basically guess where to walk to find a tram stop. Most of the people in the city are friendly and know where everything is (even though I've been in Melbourne my whole life, I don't go into the CBD often, and don't really know my way around)
- Something else (I forgot)...
I'll be going back there on the next school holidays, so I'll see what happens then
Welcome to my blog! It's not much at the moment, but might grow in the future.
Well, I think I should say why I created this blog. The main reason why this blog was created was because I won an ICT Fellowship (you can read more about this on the VITTA Website:
A key initiative proposed by the Taskforce is the Student ICT Fellowships. Fellowships of AU$ 1000 are offered annually to outstanding students making use ICT in Government schools. The Fellowships have been developed to provide students with the opportunity to work in a relevant ICT-related organisation and implement meaningful, real-life ICT projects, with the likes of graphic designers, system managers, web-masters and programmers acting as their mentors.
So basically, it's like work experience, except I get AU$1000 at the end... Quite nice
So, anyway, I'll probably be writing some stuff in here relating to this. I'm considering using Wordpress instead of this MKPortal-based blog system, but I can't really be bothered installing at the moment. Besides, this system is simple
Thanks for visiting
NOTE: I've since transferred to WordPress :)
