I finished my exams today. And that means: Alfheim - 19/04/2004 11:17:06 AM

Schooools, out, for summer!
Schooools, out, for ever!

Okay, that latter one isn't true, but it might be fun to envision it. Hold on while I check. Hmmm. Hmmm. Right, so yes, it is fun to think about.

Today marked my last day of exams, and overall they went by without too much difficulty. The only real hard spot I had to go through was my three exams in 24 hours. That was tough. But luckily, only 24 hours, so it was over before I knew it. For those who care, as few as you may be, my exams were on the topics that follow: Canadian History; History of Modern Japan - From Tokugawa times to Present; Romantic Gothic Literature - The Novel; and World Masterpieces - Post Bible era.

So, I don't have any real plans for the summer... or, considering it is April, for the spring either. I suppose I'll just be working at the pool and on the beaches, like usual. While fun, I'd like to get away for a break. But, I know I won't. I'll save up money for school, and the exhorbant sums I will undoubtably spend on clothes, food, and parties. (Don't you make fun of my 3000 dollars, Matt)

Since last summer I have really grown into the person I believed I would. I have learned much, have become more outgoing, kind, and aware of issues I never even thought of before. And in part, this is as a result of my time spent at Wotmania. One of the key things my visits here has done for me has to educate me on world issues and political matters I previously had no knowledge of. Of course, it is also due to personal growth, but I do not wish to diminish the impact the site had in that regard.

I've branched out and begun speaking to more diverse members around here, and generally speaking my mind instead of not saying anything. I have pulled some pranks (some of which most of you still don't know about, tee hee) and have tried to become more of a respectable poster. Sure I still head off into threadjacking sometimes, but if you've a problem with that, I'm afraid you're just going to have to deal with it. Actually, I'm not afraid, just do it. Kinda like a Nike commercial.

I've had some spats with a few posters here, and I am not sorry for them. I may regret the rashness of some of the words, but not the message implicit behind them. But on the other hand, I've come to know a few 'maniacs moreso than ever before, and it more than makes up for the negitives. Some of you I dislike, and never will like, but the majority of you have made Wotmania a nice place to kill a few hours while bored. You are the ultimate aids in procrastination--like a partner really. A partner who never says "Not tonight, I've a headache," but is always available with the click of a button, and a keystroke or two. While I wouldn't meet the vast majority of people here (don't take as an insult, I just don't do that) there are people that make me think sometimes it would be nice to see their real-life selves.

Some of you I admire, some of you I respect, and some of you I enjoy the company of. For example: As much as I poke fun (and they do back) I know that Wads and Snoopster would be great to hang out with for a time, and go drinking with. As odd and quirky as he is, Greg (Chorabliss) would be really cool to go see some cultural stuff with, like a play. Matt would be fun to go to a sporting event with, like a soccer game, just to throw that out there as a random sport. Jess would be fun to go to dinner with, as well as Glo, among others.

I know I'm sort of rambling at this point, but since the end of the school year has finally come -- and believe me, this year was harder than last (Which, I suppose, still isn't saying much) -- I am a little more sentimental than I'd usually be. Friends are leaving for the summer, some others are returning for the summer, and I leave my second year of university behind, with great expectations for my third. So, thank you everyone for making one year and a few months of visiting Wotmania as enjoyable as it has been. Every poster here has something they've contributed to this end, so you all deserve applause, even if I haven't named you at this point.

I guess I should have saved this for my 10,000th post (in total, not just on this board, so don't freak out) but right now I have come to the end of an important point in my life, so what better time to create this then now? So, in conclusion, thank you everyone (except maybe you in the corner) and I have one question for you all.

What sort of plans do you have for the summer?



On an island where no one lives,
We build a treehouse together.
