You could imagine the joy I felt when I discovered that there was no school on Monday. To me it was a sign to get my lazy procrastinating bum out of the sofa, and actually do some really work. Which I did, eventually. …With a lot of self-bribery. lol.
Fast forward to Tuesday, the supposedly National Career Assessment Test( which was cancelled due to the delivery of papers) we were suppose to have a structure lesson, presented by Navya, but due to some complications we moved it after our midterms. Which is all well, as we got to review our vocabulary and do our oral exam.
The oral exam was well, uh, different. Straying away from our usual Batman theme, we went into something deeper, something important and more relevant to today’s youth. Something… K-POP!!! *woot woot* Being a fairly decent k-pop fan, I was pretty excited to know we were doing a k-pop themed oral exam. That was before I knew the songs were probably dated from 2007. (not that it’s a bad thing!) But I’m not going to lie, songs from 2007 compared to 2017, has changed quite a lot. Especially in the k-pop industry. So there’s that.
And that’s pretty much it for the week. Due to the Monday cancellation, we esentially only had two periods of AEP for the whole week. Which I suppose, was pretty relaxing. Next week is going to be our midterms, with about 300 words to review. No pressure.
