Fortunately, my brother seems to have recovered from his anaphylactic attack, and AFAIK he's out of hospital now. So that's good. In other news, I spent the entire afternoon reading J. K. Rowling's new Harry Potter book, The Order of the Phoenix. Pretty good actually: suprisingly, in fact. Bristol Open Day tomorrow, and I still don't know how I'm going to get there... My Grade 8 horn exam this morning went... reasonably... hopefully I scraped a merit: it would be great if I have. I don't get to find out my mark for ages, unfortunately...

Hmmm... once again, I haven't been doing much bloggage recently. I've been pretty busy: last week I was on work experience placement at Reading University Cybernetics Department, which was pretty cool. In fact it was amazing.

I'm finally an official developer for QuArK, which means I get lots of exciting things, like a remote shell account at SourceForge, access to the SourceForge compile farm, the ability to make releases and stuff... I still haven't quite got my head around it!

Greg was taken ill with a severe allergic attack this evening - we don't know what caused it - and he's in hospital at the moment, under observation. Not very nice really...

Grade 8 horn tomorrow morning! Aaargh! No!

Well, over this week I've been doing a lot of work on QuArK, and I've produced a new installer for it: you can download it from Yahoo Groups if you want to try out the latest 6.4.0 alpha version.

Yes, Chemistry was tricky, and long: three one-hour papers. Some of those questions were on really obscure parts of the syllabus! I don't think I did as well as I should have, so I'm going to make pretty sure that I am properly prepared for my other exams of this session.

Half term was good. I got to spend quite a lot of time with Lizzie, and managed to relax quite successfully (inbetween bouts of revision). I didn't really do enough revision though, but I'm revising more now. God knows I need to.

I had my first exam of this session today: Pure Mathematics P1. It went pretty well, and I think I'm above the 90th percentile for definite. I'm looking forward to the results for that one! I've got Chemistry tomorrow though, and I'm not looking forward to that in any way whatsoever. It's going to be a tricky one.

I've got a date for my Grade 8 horn exam now. It's going to be on the 25th of June, which is good because it clashes with a compulsory school activity I'm not very keen on: our year's Day of Recollection. So I'll basically have the day off (well, sort of).

Exam-wise, this week's busy. After Chemistry tomorrow I've got a Statistics exam on Thursday followed by Physics on Friday, but then I've only got two exams, and they're pretty spaced out, so I'm going to have plenty of time to prepare for them.
