I guess it's that time of the year again...

Today classes at frontistiria officially start, and this is our final year at school. No more jokes,huh?
Yesterday the results for greek universities came out. It got them more than 2 months to announce who would get into which university. This time next year, it will be us waiting for the results... And with the new system and all, things will be tough. Reaaaally tough. For as much as i've heard, the changes that are (supposedly) going to be done are not that bad. They're more like a slight approach to the english educational system, but greek academics don't seem to agree. Which means more trouble for no reason,and things getting worse and worse. This year School of architecture n.t.u.a. was closed for six months! For SIX whole months, students had no lessons AT ALL, but they took the summer exams anyway... Doesn't sound good to me!=_=
I said that the results came out,didn't I? Well,guess what. The last person to get into School of architecture of Athens had 18.95/20,which is not that bad. I mean the exams were extremely difficult this year. But,our lovely system *helps* those who have 3 or more children(their income has to be under a certain limit) by entering on an other category and giving them the possibility to get into a university of their choice with lower grades,which is very thoughtful indeed, but unfair at some points. For example,think of this year. The last person from that category to enter School of architecture of Athens had only 4.7/20. Well, well, how fair is that for everyone else?
I think I have a headache all of a sudden.
Goodmorning everyone.

"It has occured to me recently that for the last few years I have been in a permanent state of tiredness. I'm so tired of trying and trying and trying.I don't have anything left.I'm done.
Right now, I feel...nothing.
Nothing at all.
A huge,empty,endless nothing that I am filling up with corn chips and movies."

Nicely put Libby! It's sad that I couldn't agree more...

My manic and I

The first time you called me back I was literally just waking up. And I was listening to 'My manic and I' by Laura Marling. By the time I decided to actually open my eyes,calm down and answer the phone,you had already hang up.
The second,only minutes ago,'My manic and I' came up on shuffle on my mp3.By the time I decided to stop going up and down in my room,calm down and answer the phone,you had already hang up.
There's definitely something wrong with my timing. Or with us.

"I can't control you,I don't know you well
These are the reasons I think that you're ill.
And since last that we parted,last that I saw him
Down by the river,silent and hardened
Morning was mocking us
Blood hit the sky
I was just happy my manic and I
He didn't see me,the sun was in his eyes
And birds were singing to calm us down.
And i'm sorry young man,I cannot be your friend
I don't believe in a fairytale end
I don't keep my head up all of the time
I find it dull when my heart meets my mind
I hardly know you,I think I can tell
These are the reasons I think that we're ill
I hardly know you,I think I can tell
These are the reasons I think that I'm ill..."
