I passed my final exam with a perfect score, y’all! (Okay, it was open-book, but it was TRICKY. *g*) Anyway, it finally left me with just a tiny window of space, and I jumped on it like a top on a brat’s bedtime! 😀
So yeah, check out the story page under the Bucket series. It’s just a teeny little chapter, but hey, it’s something. And even though I have another class starting next week, I will try to keep the momentum going and work on one of the stories I’ve had floating around in my mind for awhile….like maybe the Cassie/Nicky story. *g* Maybe.
Thanks for your patience, gang. You guys rock. *fond swats all around*
Ooo! Free fond swats. 😉
That’s right, get ’em while they’re hot. 🙂
Congratulations on your exam! Exams are painful, I have my final exams coming up in about 5 weeks *groan*.
Thanks, Jazz. Mine wasn’t anything compared to what you’ll go through, I’m quite sure. But I hope you’re not going to wait till the last moment to study! *raised brow*
Um… well… I’ve made a study timetable which I have put up on my bedroom wall, I look at it occasionally and think “I should probably be doing that”. Also I have made a mental list of my subjects ordered from the one I need to study the most for to the one I need to study the least for. I’m listening to French music at the moment which sort of counts as studying as my French exam will have an aural section.
Congrats, Alyx, for both your exams and your story! 🙂
Thank you, Mil. I’m rather pleased about both. 🙂
Yay! We love you Alyx! Congrats on the exam 🙂
But teasing about Cassie and Nicky, that really does deserve a swat. Dare I? Hmm maybe not 🙂
Thanks, Pixie! I love you too. 🙂
And no, you dare not. *stern look* I’m sure you’re in enough trouble as it is without adding another top into the mix! *g*
My thought exactly, Miss Lynne! Congrats, Your Intellectualness! And awesome you are now writing stories again. 🙂
Thank you, DisneyDyke. My intellectualness is non-existent but I will gladly take the good wishes! 😀
Woot, perfect score! And a story! Awesome possum 😀
And yes, delurking on your blog, Alyx.
Welcome, Pao! I’m glad you delurked. (And I think “awesome possum” is my new favorite phrase. 😀 )
Muddos , dd that’s a really big word ” intellectualness ” . Hurt my feelings lol . Boy Alyx , u mussy real awesome to multi task like that dred. I know I for one am a procrastinator gets me in trouble all the time , what can I say I’m a brat and love it . Don’t get me wrong dd , just messin with ya .
It wasn’t quite the same as taking a real class, Bahamagirl. It was just a non-credit course to learn some new skills. But it did keep me very busy. And yes, it seems to be a truth that Brat = Procrastinator, doesn’t it? 😀
Non-credit? This was a class for fun? I’m all for elective classes, but isn’t beginning swimming or karate or anything that doesn’t involve a test better?
Hah, what makes you think those kinds of classes don’t involve “tests,” Basketball Girl? I am remembering my childhood YMCA swimming class, where I refused to let go of the counselor, clinging like a fearful barnacle, till finally they gave up on me and parked me at the side of the pool. *shudder* No thanks, PHP is actually less painful, I think! 😀
Are you in training to be a hacker when you grow up, Alyx?! How very very handy 😉
It would be, wouldn’t it? *g* My ex was actually a hacker….got a lot of free software in those days. 😀 But no, I want to grow up to be something much less profitable, I’m afraid.
What do you want to be?
Happy, mainly. But career-wise, I’d settle for being a rich writer. 😀
I too was put into swimming class at the YMCA when I was young and I absolutely refused to go into the water – all I did was stand at the edge of the pool and scream…they ended up refunding my mother and asking her to take me away! LOL
Aw, I’m glad I wasn’t the only one! *bg* However you’re still better off — at least you aren’t surrounded by water! 😛
This is so very true! I did move far from the ocean! :-p
Ahem, BG…karate has many tests – both physical and written! But nice try! *giggling*
Ooh. Didn’t know karate had written tests too :O I’ve always only thought there was the physical. Unless that’s for a higher belt?
Many styles have written tests, however, yes they are usually for the higher ranks. 🙂
They only have tests at college if the instructor isn’t sick on the day of the exam. So no exam in my class 🙂
What, you take karate too, Basketball Girl?? What is it with all of these brats arming themselves! 😀
I did take karate only as an elective. I prefer sports that involve a ball. And yes I’m well armed, but not with karate skills. Don’t worry, I usually talk my way out of situations, the brat skill of side stepping negatives and turning the words around to be positive comes in handy 🙂 I don’t generally use force, not my style. Plus you have to write it all up and justify your actions and I don’t like paperwork.
I seem to be “arming myself” with ballroom dance. I can take anyone down with my great tango abilities.
LOL! Awesome 😉
I did take karate in high school as an elective class in my senior year. Indeed, we had to do written tests as well as practical. It was pretty fun though. :3 (but apparently I forgot everything about it once I got into university)
Nevermind, you can arm yourself like Basketball Girl with bratty evasion, or like Amy with dance moves. 😀
Everything has tests in one way or another.. Usually 3 types, but sometimes 2 or 1. Physical, emotional or written ones. Karate has them, swimming can have them, colledge classes or even choir classes. I know being in the choir I’m in has provided me with all 3. Who are we to say which ones are harder?
Congrats, Alyx! Lucky being done. 😀 I’ve got an assignment for my pedagogy class this week. And then I have a Descartes assignment, and no one ever agrees with him anyway. 😦 I wish it was Christmas. I want relaxing times and pressies.
Well I can agree with “cogito ergo sum”, but the rest is just depressing.
Well, you could always say Spinoza is cooler. That’s quite the brat move too. I don’t even agree with cogito ergo sum… Well, I won’t use alyx’ blog for my newfound love for philosophy, although maybe I’m being inspired by Alyx studiousness. 🙂
My philosophy is more “Cogito, ergo doleo” — I think, therefore I am depressed.
Kidding! 😀 It’s “Rideo, ergo sum.”
I laugh, therefore I am?
But isn’t laughing a bodily function? Meaning if res extensa does not exist, you have been fooled by senses. O_O
Or maybe I am getting this wrong. 😛 My motto is “If you think too much, it’s going to hurt your brain”.
Yes, I laugh, therefore I am. And Ash? Everything is a bodily function. There are things which exist outside the physical, but we only perceive it through the physical. All we are and think and know is a result of nerve impulses firing. IMO, anyway. 😀
Well I just tried to follow Descartes and pretend like nothing existed. LoL! Anyways…. brat philosophy… “I agree with what my Toppy says, ask her.”
A very wise philosophy, Ash. 🙂
Alyx, congrats on your exam! “Sensei” highly approves you being such a diligent student. 😉 *patting your back on her behalf* LOL
btw, Was your open-book timed?
Thank you, Peach. And domo arigato, sensei. 🙂
My exam was timed. I had only 2 weeks to finish it. 😀
(Oh god, I think Fizzy’s rubbing off on me! *rolls eyes*)
I did feel a moment of bratty vindication when you started talking about getting an extension. 😆
You need to feel a moment of bratty soreness, young lady! *growl*
Congrats!! and hey open book tests are tricky 🙂 and yayy! to the new chapter and possibly a Cassie and Nicky!!
Thanks, Maryk88! I’m just as happy as you are. Even more, probably. 😀
Congrats on your test. Yes open book tests can be made very trick as can multiple choice test. Tricky teachers always messing with your mind. *bg*
Thanks, Kayla. Yes, tricky indeed. But I still prefer them to essay questions, don’t you? 😉
That is an iffy one cuz as much as I’m not good at writing, an essay allows you to “show” what you learned and if you are a good BSer you will do fine. I personally will keep myself out of school for as long as I can. It’s just not my thing and I’m not a good BSer….AT ALL *L*. I’ll take the open book tests any day though. Even better if it’s open book and multiple choice I’m all in. I like learning for the sake of being curious and wanting to learn. Forcing me to learn stuff that is mundane or of no relevance or use just to get more money from me is not worth it. *sighs* What ever happened to apprenticeships?
Brats frequently are good BSers….Fizzy gets perfect scores on her essay questions. 😀 But you and I agree on the school thing. I don’t mind taking classes, but real school? Took me long enough to get out the first time! *g*
As long as they are fond swats and not the other kind, I can live with that. Congratulations on your exam! Looking forward to the new story when it is available. 🙂
Thanks, Quietgirl. I hope to work on it little by little….let’s cross our fingers my next class doesn’t take too much time and energy. 🙂
Congrats on doing so well! And thanks for the fond swat. I do like that kind. The story is nice too, though I will admit that now I’m going to be impatiently waiting for a possible Cassie/Nicky story to appear. I really like those. 🙂
What do you mean “Brat = Procrastinator”?! That’s an unfair stereotype! *is indignant* (Yes, I know it’s true for me, but that doesn’t mean it’s true for everybody.)
Thank you, Cras. I know how the Cassie/Nicky pairing is a favorite, which is why I will try to finish that next. And stereotypes develop for a reason, don’t they? I’m sure there are non-procrastinator brats around….I just haven’t met one yet. *vbg*
That’s awesome news! Congrats on passing with perfect scores. 😀
A new Cassie and Nicky story?! Now I will really be camping in your blog waiting for the new story! *vbg*
Thank you, Raine. But don’t start camping out yet! You’ll be eating beans on toast for a long time. 😀
Congrats on a perfect score, though it does not surprise me 🙂 I guess doing all the lessons and reading the book may pay off in the end, not that I’m going to adopt that philosophy. Nice job, you rock Alyx!
Hey Basketball Girl, thanks for the good wishes. Yes, I think you’ll find doing the lessons and reading the material works miracles. 😀
Congrats Alyx. A perfect score is always reason to celebrate no matter if its open-book. Thank you for my fond swat. *bats eyes* Am I allowed to return the favor? *giggles*
No, young lady, you are NOT! *growl* But thank you for the congratulations. 🙂
Congrats! And yay to the Cassie & Nicky story (any ETA?soon?very soon??)!
Thanks, Irene. No ETA….and no, not very soon. But eventually. 🙂
Congratulations on the exam 🙂
Hey Bystander, long time no see! Thank you, it feels good. 🙂
That’s wonderful, Alyx! Now you can enjoy a bit of down time.
Yes, Ana, all of a week. *LOL* I start my next class in a couple of days. 😛
Hi Alyx, many congratulations , it appears exam success is the ideal thing to get your arse in gear. Good luck with the next one…I can’t wait till you pass it!
Hey Sandy, thanks! Yes, I was pleased myself, and I can’t wait till I pass the next one either! 😀
*gentle nudge* Just wondering about the new story, no pressure or anything…only small foot stamp 🙂
*LOL* A small foot stamp, eh Pixie? 😀 Well, I am working on a Cassie and Nicky story, as promised. And hope to have it for Xmas. Hope I’m not making a mistake in committing myself….it’s still in the very early stages. 😦
Woo hoo, that means Nicky’s in trouble again!
Oops that didn’t come out right.lol. I’m only gleeful cause there’s gonna be a story!! *bg*
Btw, the promise will be kept right? You know sensei will not be please if not. 😉 *vbeg*
C’mooon. New story. Now! I demand it!…Kinda…I mean…. Jdksosuaiwlsj.
Me too! *stomping foot demanding* 😛
What’s this?? Brat tantrums so close to Xmas?? *delivering whacks to both sets of naughty cheeks* *SWAT! SWAT! SWAT! SWAT* Behave yourselves, C and Ash! You wouldn’t want to be the only ones who don’t get to read the next story, do you? *stern look*
(I am working on it…but dang, Xmas is sure coming up fast! 😛 )
Ow! *grumble* Aaallllyyyyx…. wanna read it too. *pout*
I want Christmas to come faster… sigh. I am sick of studying and exams, and test etc. I am this close to throwing chairs across the room singing “we don’t need no education!” 😀
No one’s going to get to read it if I don’t get it done (are you crossing your fingers, brat?). Hope you’re doing well on your exams, Ash. At least when you’re in school you get a Xmas break. Once you’re at a job there is no Xmas break! Well….for most of us, that is. *thinking enviously of a certain brat*
Alyx, you’ll soon find out what I’ve been wasting my time on …. hehehhe 😉
Can’t wait to read the story! *fingers crossed*
Wahoo! Does that mean you’ve been writing too Peach????? *vbg*
Nah, got no inspiration whatsoever right now. Excited about Alyx’s new story though. 🙂
Well I do have a job… sort of. Yes, it is a job, but it is a Saturday job… three Saturdays a month until this woman recovers from surgery and then I have two a month. So I have to work this Saturday. 😦
Though I shouldn’t complain… I just got back from London. 😀 The big city might have given me a terrible cold, but it was awesome!
Congrats on the job Ash 🙂 hope it goes well.
Peach: hoping the muse strikes you soon?
Alyx: waiting very very patiently with bated breath *veg*
I love my winter break. hehehehe
Jealous of your trip to London, Ash! But I’m sure you deserved it, with the hard work in school and your job on the side. Of course there are other things you deserve, but we won’t get into that. 😀
Peach, I did indeed find out what you’ve been doing with your time, and you deserve a switch in your Xmas stocking! *swat!*
Espy, it looks like I won’t have the new story finished by Xmas after all. *sigh* I’ll keep trying, but it may not be ready till New Year’s. Just so much Xmas (and job) craziness around here! But I haven’t given up hope yet, so keep holding your breath. *vbg*
Kayla, quit bragging about your winter break. *g* That’s the only good thing about school….those mini-vacations! 🙂
I did deserve it! And yes, I’m sure I deserve a lot of other things to… but it’s christmas, we’re not gonna get into that. 😉
That’s okay about the Cassie and Nicky story, Alyx, I know you’ve been working on it EVERY DAY so it’s going to be really good when it is done. We can wait a little longer for greatness. 😀
In the meantime…in case any newbies haven’t stumbled on them yet, Alyx’s series of Holiday Stories is def worth a read or reread. To see them grouped together, click on the “Stories” link at the top of the page instead of using the drop-down menu (right next to “Bug Alyx Here” and I KNOW everyone knows where that is!), and you’ll be on a page with all her story series in groups. Holiday Stories is on the right side toward the bottom of the page.
Happy Holidays to everyone! Hope Santa lost the naughty lists. 😆
Aw, thank you, Fizzy-brat. *cuddle* I don’t know how good it will be, but I will definitely get it done. Thanks for your patience, everyone!
Replying to everyone in one post makes it look like Santa’s naughty and nice list. *L* Yep that is the nice thing about school. The only problem is you’re using the breaks to recoup from the stress of dealing with parents and trying to regain all the patience you lost trying to mold young stubborn obnoxious minds. It’s nice to be lazy but it’s hard to not think about work. I’m putting up a good fight though. Hope your X-Mas was good.
Owi, a switch? *gasps* Alyyyyyyyyyx!!!
Fortunately Santa is a sensible old man, he brought me a box of baklava. *vbg*
Mmmmmm baklava is yummy and a much sweeter gift than a switch. Unless were talking the persona (not sure I used that right) “switch”. Would Alyx fit in your stocking? *g*
LOL. You are funny Kayla!
Although I’d gladly trade my baklava for Alyx in a heart beat, for a cuddle ya know. 😉
Hah, that’s what I feel like…Santa Alyx. Okay, everyone, line up to get on my knee! Heheheh.
Mmmm, I haven’t had baklava in ages. That was a good one about the switch in your stocking, Kayla. *LOL* I didn’t even think about that! But now that you mention it, I’d love to have a certain sometimes top in my stocking. 😀
*thud* The lingerie nearly killed me Darling…. are you going to add stockings now?!!! Oh good Lor— *faint*
Hey! *LOL* People don’t need to be thinking about Top Alyx in lingerie! For your eyes only, Aer-my-love. *smooch* 😀
