Hello! A little catch-up and May Advertisers Post!

This past month has consisted of revision crammed weekends, early morning puppy cuddles and lots of biscuit-into-tea dipping. 4/5 of my exams are now truly out of the way, alas, 'happily' out of the way is a tad ambivalent. Upon revising and memorising the wrong content for my first English Literature exam (Of Mice and Men and An Inspector Calls, if you're wondering) I felt like Sharpay in High School Musical when she sings the famous lines 'This is not what I want. This is not what I planned. And I just gotta say, I do not understand'. In spite of the comical nature, I'm pretty sure the invigilators wouldn't be too kind about a HSM tribute mid-exam. Two ICT exams later, I was encapsulated with gratefulness at AQA for a question choice on the poetry exam which my friends and I had held hands and jokily prayed for 40 minutes prior. I'm hoping my nonchalant rambles (I wrote half a page analysing the word "ivy" from 'The Blackbird of Glanmore') were enough to please the examiner and help redeem myself from my disastrous attempt at the modern texts exam (to which I left myself 12 minutes to answer part b). With only the biggun', the English Language exam on the arison (3rd of June, to be precise) I am hoping to spend this half term appreciating the little things in life that I was blinded to in direct correlation with the piles of past papers occupying my desk in the last week or two. This new mindset was particularly reinforced by Jojo, who blogs at her wonderful slice of the internet, MissJojangles, with her latest post, 'Turning 20'. Every word resonated with me and I felt myself rereading it a few times in order to completely savour the poignant strings of sentences that ultimately caused a wave of nostalgia and whimsical-ness. I now raise my arms in a blogger-salute to her. Here's to the half term, aye.

On a different note, I thinks its now a rather apt time to introduce May's advertiser, 'Poptalk'! They're an app aimed at teens and kids with a new spin on IM (brings back MSN/Bebo memories, anyone?). I've downloaded the app myself and it is actually pretty cool.

Here's what the team had to say about the app:
