Newt In A Tea Cup

{August 19, 2007}   A-Levels!

I got straight As across the board!!1 I’m into the Uni I want- and I’m going to try for a scholarship! Straight As!

My strongest one was in English Lit (of which I did the worst on the Shakespeare and the best on my coursework – which was exploring the status of victimhood intersecting race and gender in Toni Morrison’s Jazz, and then the comparative essay on the failures of the American dream for both rich and poor.) Funnily enough I did worst on English Language which was my favourite subject and second worst in French; The irony being I’ve been bilingual all my live and received a French education for all of my formative years until I moved UK-wise.

But if that’s my worst I am sooo damn happy!
