Today I did the last exam (Classic Iconography) of my degree. I'm one essay (Sardinian nuragic culture in the Late Bronze Age and Early Iron Age), one report (on the excavation I worked in last summer) and a dissertation (The barges shrines and chapels of the god Amun in Ancient Egypt) away from becoming a graduated archaeologist.

Most fascinating 4 years of my life.

My name's Irene and today I have witnesed history happening in front of my eyes. Today, after 39 years of kingship, Juan Carlos, king of Spain, has abdicated in his son, Felipe (future Felipe VI of Spain).

Opinion on politics and monarchy and that kind of stuff. Only about Spain )

Anyway, what I wanted to talk about was about my pride of being alive at this time. So many stuff has happened, in Spain and in the rest of the world, at the time I'm living. Stuff that will appear in History books of the future. I've seen many wars, many protests, many acts of terrorism, many falls, many risings. You can never know what will be written in posterity, but I'm sure that stuff like Obama, the Arabic Spring or Felipe VI of Spain (okay, Philip VI for you, anglospeakers) will feature. And, as a person who is in love with history and will dedicate her life to search and fight for it, I'm inmensily happy I'm alive at this time.

In times like this, I can't help but loving what I do and being jealous of what the future 'me's of the future will dig. I bet we will be called the 'Phone Civilisation' or something like that, though. It's a pity that I don't want to be buried, but if I reconsider it, I'll totally leave in my grave something for the future archaeologists to be able to identify my body and the period. Or I might get naughty and just bury myself with some scarabeums to make them crazy!

PS: BTW, guess who got a 10 in Archaeometry II exam!!!!!! YES, ME!!!!!! \o/ So this makes an average of 7 so... FIRST SUBJECT PASSED! ONLY 4 TO GO!!! \o/

Yes, this means...

The 12th of April I'm going to meet my favourite band, Finley. I'm going to be able to tell them how much they have helped me just with their music and thank them because they're one of the most important things of my life. Also, I'm going to see them playing songs in accoustic (something they don't do often but they're so damn good at it) and I'm going to a concert of them for the second time of my life. And, as it wasn't good enough, I'm going to spend a whole day in company of some of my Italian friends, being able to speak the most amazing language in the world.

Who cares I'm going to spend a stupid and huge amount of money? With them, every cent is worth it.

Ho fatto una promessa tempo fa...

On other news, today I began the new term and, even if I need to refresh my Maths for Topography (and it will be difficult because I haven't studied Maths for years), I also have Archaeology of Egypt and the teacher is so awesome! I'm so looking forward to learn about the country that made me choice this profession in the first place! :D These next months look so good :)
Finally, finally exams have ended! I'm so happy right now because these two weeks have been stressing as hell. My life has been waking up, studying, breafast, more studying, going to bed; it has been so stressful even if, for the first time in so long, I've been keeping good schedules and I have been able to study all the subjects with time for revising before the exam.

About how exams have gone )

Even if I say I'm free, that's not totally true because I still have to do my Doctor Who presentation for English next Thursday (rambling about my favourite show in front of 30 people? Cool! If it wasn't because my pronuntiation it's horrible :D) and, most important, a Greek assignment that I have to give next Friday and I didn't start. But still, it's better than studying, isn't it?

Next week we start the new term and subjects get even more technical (and we have... MATHS *funeral music in the background*) but... I'M GOING TO HAVE ARCHAEOLOGY OF EGYPT!!!! AT FUCKING LEAST!!!! \o/ I'm so going to get a good mark in this, as my name is Irene! o/

About concert plan(e)s )

Anyway, I should continue writing the Doctor Who presentation. Should I talk about the Doctor's boyfriend or just saying that he's his best enemy? ;)


Btw, I want to do the writer's meme, as I saw it in lots of journals when I was away. So I'll give it a try now that I'm back, ask away if you want :)

Put a number in the comments and I’ll answer accordingly. The mission for those of us who answer the questions, should we accept it, is to stay positive about our writing and ourselves, but to also be fair about our shortcomings.

1. Of the fic you’ve written, of which are you most proud?
2. Favorite tense
3. Favorite POV
4. What are some themes you love writing about?
5. What inspires you to write?
6. Thoughts on critique
7. Create a character on the spot... NOW!
8. Is there a character you love writing for the most? The least? Why?
9. A passage from a WIP
10. What are your strengths in writing?
11. What are your weaknesses in writing?
12. Anything else that you want to know... (otherwise known as Fill in the Blank)

Have a good weekend, everyone!

PS: There might be an update of something #soon... Isn't it, [ profile] zetastation? ;)
PS2: I have to change lots of things of this layout that I don't know and I hate CSS and *sobs* Well, I'll do it after finishing the homework, someday... Until that, apologies because I've been told the comments area is so light (and it is).
