Woo! I managed to get permission to re-take tests/essays during the summer. I just got my first back (an essay on the validity of a psychological research) and scored 9/10! I knew I'm not stupid but after almost a year of no academic progress whatsoever it's great to see it reconfirmed. :) 
And I'm not the only one who scored. Yesterday Holland beat the Brazil team in the world cup! I was watching with my friends and we were so uptight we nearly didn't dare to watch the last 15 minutes. After the match everybody was just so euphoric and elated, usually I don't care much for soccer but this was great to witness. We ended up eating dinner in the park (it was 35C) and had a great time. Reminds me why life is good!
