Start of HSC = Tomorrow  
I can't believe the HSC starts tomorrow. But I think I'm as prepared as I can be, at least for English Paper 1 anyway. I'm taking it pretty easy today, which is why I'm on the computer ;)

Putting my exam timetable up, for posterity's sake.

Monday 17/10/05 - English (Advanced) Paper 1: Area of Study
Thursday 20/10/05 - English (Advanced) Paper 2: Modules
Monday 24/10/05 - Mathematics Extension 2
Thursday 27/10/05 - Mathematics Extension 1
Wednesday 02/11/05 - Chemistry
Friday 04/11/05 - Physics

And then I'm done! It's a pretty good timetable actually. Plus I finish a week earlier than the last exam. *sigh*

Anyways, just have to say that I love the new GoF posters. Gah, everyone is so pretty - Harry, Hermione, Cedric... Except for Ron. I feel rather sorry for him actually, they always put him in ridiculous poses and with terrible facial expressions for the promos, while everyone else looks pretty.

Pooja and I went to Macquarie library yesterday again. And we decided to kind of go exploring around the campus. The buildings are really ugly, but they've got really lovely grassy areas and hills and stuff. Nearly got attacked by some ducks. We also came across this grass circle thing and this eird structure thing. It was so weird.

Ok, you can't really see it at all... but it's like this huge grassy area, encompassed by this concrete circle outline. Like a natural depression.

Here's the weird structure thing. I reckon if you added another 2 layers to it, it could be a DNA molecule double helix thing. But that's just me. And it's basically just randomly in the middle of nowhere. Very bizarre.

Oh, and incidentally, my friend Pooja's sister, Priyanka. She's in 2nd year uni studying architecture. But she's a fandom-girl as well! And she reads fanfiction and ships couples and stuff. I was like, wow, one of the very few people I know in RL who does the same things I do! But yeah, she ships Draco/Ginny... so maybe she ships Harry/Hermione? *winks* I'm planning to have a looong chat with her after everything.

Anyhows, that's all I have to share. I'll be back with exam thoughts this time tomorrow! *starts getting nervous*

You have crop circles at your school! How lovely. That Hermione pic is beautiful, by the way.

Lol, is that what they're called? What purpose do they serve exactly? It's not my school - it's the university where I go to study at the library for. My school doesn't have anything interesting/weird like that.

Yeah it is. Really lovely effects.

Their pupose? That's one of the mysteries of the universe...

Ohh... I see I see. It looked like it was man-made, but maybe not. It's kind of like that Signs movie isn't it?

Interesting, thanks for the link :)

Interesting pictures, Jo.. O.O No, really!

Yeah, poor Ron. And poor Draco. The film makers are abusing their personalities.

Good luck on the HSC! *hugs*

But yeah, she ships Draco/Ginny... so maybe she ships Harry/Hermione?

Ooooh, I hope Priyanka does ship H/Hr. But she scores major points for shipping D/G *grin*
Josephineyukikumiko on October 17th, 2005 06:25 am (UTC)
Lol!

Mainly poor Ron. Draco actually looks pretty good in those promos, and so does Goyle. It must be the all-black thing. *hides*

Yeah, definitely :D We must have a discussion about HBP and SW and everything.
nousia on October 17th, 2005 08:04 pm (UTC)
Haha maybe, Jo, maybe!

You should *nods*

And you know - the background in Hermione's poster might be of her in the Hogwarts Lake. What do you think?

Good luck! What does HSC stand for anyway, I've heard a couple people talking about it and I don't know what it means.

Anyways, just have to say that I love the new GoF posters. Gah, everyone is so pretty - Harry, Hermione, Cedric... Except for Ron. I feel rather sorry for him actually, they always put him in ridiculous poses and with terrible facial expressions for the promos, while everyone else looks pretty.

I agree, I think it's getting rather old with his expressions over the years as him as Ron. Krum's picture is pretty too and poor Fleur's looks a little too airbrushed.

Haha, it does look like it could be a double helix if the rest was added!

Thanks! HSC = Higher School Certificate. They're the final exams for year 12 students in NSW and you need it to get into universities and stuff. Well, actually, how well you do in the HSC determines your UAI (University Admissions Index) and that's used to get into the course you want.

Yeah. I just wish they would portray him better, because he is a great character in the books, and he is on an equal footing with the rest of the trio as well. Fleur and Krum aren't really what I imagined them to look like, but Krum is starting to grow on me.

Hehe yeah, I've been doing way too much science. :D

I'm getting rather tired of the movies' version of Ron. They make him look like a complete fool. They're taking his book personality, multiplying it ridiculously and then getting rid of his good aspects... grr.

I love that Hermione poster. It's kind of eerie though.
Josephineyukikumiko on October 17th, 2005 06:33 am (UTC)
I mean, they're only taking a PART of his book personality. They're just using him for comic relief mainly. But that's Fred and George's roles! Yeah, the portrayal is kind of stuffed. And I actually quite like Ron :)

I can't quite make out what the background is supposed to be. It looks like there's some kind of pillar or something... I think the hues give it that kind of eerie effect. Hmm.
