Exams, bathroom scribbles and acrylic hearts.

I think I've pretty much summed up the content of this post in the title, but no matter. Since I had a fairly pleasant first exam, I thought I'd share the pictures I took today.

Firstly, even though the bathrooms at my school have been recently renovated, the students continue to have a sense of humour and a complete disregard for public property.



If you can't decipher the writing on the door it reads "porco é o teu pai, cabrão! Até parece que não comes carne de porno." which roughly translates as "your dad is the pig, you unpleasant person! As if you don't consume the meaty goodness that is pork.". What? I said it was a rough translation of it. Below is a comment simply stating "I don't!", which, all in all, is very standard for FCSH. Let's not forget "Fanfas e os delírios do sexo anal" or whatever it was. This is sub par, really. 4 out 10. For the effort.

But then, I looked down.



Adorable! But perhaps slightly creepy given the fact that he's happily saying "hi!" as I'm peeing. Even still, this one gets 8 out of 10.

All this happened moments before I had my first exam. It was a very relaxed affair, as literature exams tend to be, if a bit chaotic because my school strives to be terrible in many ways. Seriously, I *laughed* when I heard that my college is, apparently, amongst the best in the world. Why? Because about 7 students had to do the exam in the hallway, even though my teacher tried her hardest to get a larger classroom. Moreover, those of us who managed to be inside the classroom had to put up with drill noises that were only halted because my teacher is a badass who gets shit done.

She's also quite sweet, to the point that she actually went to get some coffee for a few of us. Well, the ones who *asked*. Free of charge, even. Maybe I'm reading way too much into it, but I think it's quite cool that she is that kind. But while she was out, a guy from my class (called Júlio*, I believe) did this:



And this gets an 7 out of 10 because the teacher loaned the marker, even if she realized what it was for. It reads: "Send answers via post!" and "Answers: 1- dunno; 2- dunno" . After sneakily taking this, I darted through the test because I felt confident in my knowledge of the subject in question.

Well, sure, maybe it was confidence...



...maybe it was my lucky charm. Who knows. One down, 4 to go.



*I always remember the loud ones.

The Beast Below - Doctor Who s5e2 recap

After a couple of troublesome days, exams are semi-over. I'd go into explaining why they are "semi-over" but I prefer not to dwell in negative stuff.

I do, however, have some extra time...so guess what time it is? MOAR DOCTOR WHO.




Unsurpringly british.



“Bad boy, Timmy.” WAT. Doctor Who sure loves creepy dolls. So this cute ginger boy apparently got a zero on some test and now he has to walk home? He takes an elevator and--



OMG SERIOUSLY STOP IT WITH THE CREEPY DOLLS GAAAAAAH.



I want her hair. I want to marry it.



“It's Britain, but metal.”



“We are observers. That's the number one rule in my travels, I never get involved.”

You lie, New Doctor. You lie.



“Sorry, checking all water in this area. There's an escaped fish.” Not going to lie, that was very amusing. He does deadpan quite well.
