YOUR FACE

Who was your last kiss?:
I named it Paavo. =)

All together, how many people have you kissed?:
One.

Do your actions ever scare you?:
Occasionally, very much.

Have you ever been in true love?:
In that it was genuinely love? I'd say so.

Ever lied to make someone feel better?:
Indeed.

How do you like being lied to?:
It depends on the lie. If it's a lie that isn't hurtful (like Mum's constant dancing around what that annotation on my first WISC test means), then fine. If it's a lie that's intended to not be hurtful and ends up being five times as hurtful ("we're drifting apart"), then it hurts but the intent's good. If it's a lie intended to be hurtful ("YOU'RE ADOPTED!") then... meet my friend Mr Verpine Shatter Gun.

Did you forgive the person who hurt you the most?:
Perhaps. It's very hard to tell.

Did they deserve to be forgiven?:
Of course.

Can your friends count on you?:
Sometimes.

Are you a good listener?:
Yeah, I've been complimented on my listening skills by random people. (People tend to strike up conversations with me. Maybe it's a sort of charisma?)

Does it bother you when your friends won't help you out?:
Yes. But sometimes I don't help them when I can, or can't help them, so it balances out.

What’s a regret you have?:
Not calling A before she ran away.

Why did you cry last?:
Because it clicked.

Who’s always on your mind?:
Claire. Sophie. Fluffydog. Josh, now. He's getting worrying. The clones (because I'm halfway through a book, and books tend to take over my mind.)

Are you comfortable with your body?:
Except for the neck slippage, yes. Short powerful limbs = awesometastic.

Have you ever broken a heart? Did you feel bad?:
Yes and yes.

Do you believe in god? Go to church?:
Yes and no. As Fifi's mum would say, I'm almost a heathen.

Do you keep a journal that only you should ever read?:
Ha, no. I keep FinDaRianBarr and talk to him.

Can you control your thoughts?:
Sometimes. But sometimes I end up with strange backlash echo-thoughts, which I don't think but which just spring up anyway.

Can you control your actions?:
Are you asking me about free will? I might, I might not. I think I can, sometimes.

How about your emotions?:
Never.

Have you ever done something that was really bad for yourself?:
Yes.

Who is it easiest to be yourself around?:
Clairity. Chewie. The Chomping Cat.

What can always put you in a good mood?:
Gilmore Girls. =D Music with memories attached - Moscow! Star Wars. Sewing. Friends.

Have you kissed in the rain?:
Yes.

Are you able to always be yourself?:
Working on it.

Is there anyone that you care more about than youself?:
Yes.

What do you miss about your past?:
The fact that it's not now.

Are you excited about the future?:
Perisher. HECK YES. (It feels so surreal, though. Perhaps because I'm going to catch a plane at 6:30 in the morning. That's pretty awesome.) Also learning Russian. HECK YES.

Do have any idea of what your future is gonna be like?:
Hopefully happy. =) But Perisher may give me a better idea -- if, for example, I'm any good at teaching. Tutoring's fun because it involves turning boring, boring maths into something interesting.

How do you do in school? Do you try hard?:
It depended on the subject. But when I go back, I'll try hard, because minimum wage sucks. (And because I've seen what the uni students have gone through.)

Do you like to help others? Does it make you feel good?:
Yes and yes.

Are you trust worthy?:
Depending on what I'm being entrusted with.

Did you lie at all in this survey?:
Yes. It's all lies, damned lies!

I'm very, very bad at being the level-headed observer.

Guess what just turned up in my email inbox? A New Snowsports Instructor Interview Day confirmation from Perisher!

I'm way too excited over what is basically an email saying "Yep, we processed your form! Come on down, stop on by, hop a Greyhound and fly to a day of craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazy skiing and interviews!"

But I'm one step closer to becoming a ski instructor! =D

World's Greatest Shave

Eee!

I can actually take part this year. =D (Pity I went and hacked all of my hair off, it's not long enough to make a wig out of. =/ And it would have been a metre long. LAAAME.)

But I'll have to ask Sadie because of the whole being at work with no hair thing.

And... wow. I'll be bald at my birthday party. =D

Your exact moment of the day is always changing, because the sun never sets at exactly the same time. You are the romantic moments just after sunset when it's still light enough to see your way around outside, and the sky is a blend of reds, pinks, purples, and blues. At this time of day, the light has a special way of making even rundown buildings looks like works of art. You're like that, too – you're always finding beauty and magic in unexpected places. Not only will you wish on the first star you see, somewhere inside, you actually expect that wish to come true.

That's lovely.

Even if it's not necessarily true -- I'm half-romantic, half-cynic, nothing in between. (Anyway, I love twilight. Especially a rainy twilight washed with turquoise and orange and threaded with dove-grey clouds, when everything looks and smells clean.)

OP

The OPs were mailed out today.

I had to pick the lock on our mailbox to retrieve mine, but the shock alone was worth the effort. Amongst the sheets and sheets of technical information and evil QSA propaganda (I kid, it was mostly technical information and a correction form, as well as 'exitlines'), we found what we were looking for.

Overall Position: 2

My reaction?

"WHAT?!"

Yeah, I was expecting a 7.

(Guess what this means. I'm eligible for engineering! And medical science! And, of course, both science and arts. I could be a doctor, if the mood struck me.

A Russian-speaking doctor! =D)

QCS strikes again...

The Maths B exam was surprisingly easy, though I'm almost certain that I used the wrong method on one of the CII/CIII questions. I didn't take anywhere NEAR enough time to do the CI questions, which is a little bit worrying.

(On the other hand, it's very much preferable to the Biology exam. There were 30 knowledge questions and TWO understanding/investigating questions. (Six marks each.) Then there was an essay response to a questionable article, which I got frustrated at because it was wrong on so many levels.)

After the exam, we planned for Schoolies. Now the girls are extremely structured, which makes me feel a lot safer. (And we're having a Bollywood night! =D ...now I have to remember how one makes lassi. It's just plain drinking yoghurt, rose water, fruit, and cardamom/cinnamon [opt], right?)

And this afternoon I got home and had to call the Queensland Studies Authority, wondering if I'd managed to get such a low mark on the QCS that they'd failed me all the way back to year three.

Apparently not. A lady (who will remain unnamed in case she finds my LJ) answered the phone with a bubbly "hello!"

I introduced myself; she said: "Oh, Kat-i-a. Right. Well, I have your QCS Writing Task here."

Was it accidentally plagiarised? No, they didn't mind plagiarism. That had been in the information sheet. One of the examples was lifted directly from some movie.

"It's been shortlisted to go into the Retrospective* as an example. It's quite a good script. They don't necessarily put the very best scripts in," she added hurriedly as I choked. "But we need your permission to enter it."

"Do I get a copy?" I asked, struggling to remember what I'd written. Something about essence, obviously.

"We'll mail you the Retrospective if you get in," she said. "But you'll have to sign the permission form first. Keep an eye out for a letter in the next week."

It's not certain, of course, because this is the shortlist. (It would be hilarious if they'd made a mistake and switched mine for someone else's. Hilarious but not surprising. I thought it was sort of dodgy. =P)
