Done it. Covered my design methodology coursework in three days. Minus vendor-specific chapters. The exam is supposedly vendor-neutral, but Susan got questions on Flash when she sat it a few days ago. There are some non-detailed mentions of Flash, Fireworks, Dreamweaver and FrontPage throughout other sections of the book, such as FTP, image creation and multimedia content. I hope this alone will be information enough without having to go over anything contained in the specific program's chapters...

Four and a half chapters left, and I've got too cold so I'm going to study in bed. That's a bad idea. I'll either end up asleep or too comfortable to get up in the morning. I'm more worried about running out of time. I should have considered this at the weekend instead of dossing.

I feel so sick.I have nine chapters left, and that's the bare minimum, without delving into the other nine chapters focused on Fireworks, Flash, Dreamweaver, FrontPage and HomeSite. I told Corinna to p*ss off and told Ciaran I'm not coming in tomorrow to sit the exam. I'm glad I took the day off though. It's worth €30 to have some silence from the people who are winding me up. Me and Ciaran having arguments is not conductive to studying and passing exams. Heartbreak and upset consumes my m...

Talking to Ciaran at the bus stop this afternoon, he'd been reviewing my Flash project with the Harvey in the stable, which I'd published and uploaded. His favourite part was "When you click on the horse". Now, that would be nice save that there is no action associated with the horse object in the Flash movie. "When you click on teh horrrrse! When he walks away and you don't know if he's coming back, and then in a few seconds, he comes back!" I was completely horrified. "He... deosn't?" But oh y...

I have done all I can, I'm fit to collapse. It's been race race race all morning, from a thirty-five minute wait at the bus stop to a sixty question exam. Susan's not done yet, and we're not getting the right answers. What, indeed, in CSS, does the "class" refer to?Oh, it's an attribute.My web portfolio has the professional stanrdards not even measuring the expectations of Tesco Web Design.I'm going now.

By tomorrow lunchtime I am supposed to have a reasonable web portfolio to present to a company who will then offer me work experience, or refuse, based on the content of my portfolio. Every time I begin something, I realise I have that file in the Fás centre, better version of Dreamweaver, more recently edited Flash file, all the wrong fonts, and not enough time. Susan's giving us a 70 question exam tomorrow in preparation for our exam on Thursday. I will finish it in about fifteen minutes ...

Busy day, and I would be tired, were it not for a pot of tea had during Emmerdale tonight. Frantic soap fanatics, burning the dinner cause Home and Away was that darn exciting. We spent most of the morning searching out companies online to apply to for work experience. I forwarded my CV to gothwalk for this purpose, and whether anything comes of that or not, I'm still grateful for that :) Thanks.And if anyone else knows of any web design companies or even graphic design (Flash and Photoshop type...

I just finished two Sudoku puzzles that I failed to finish this afternoon in Susan's absence. I also failed to read any chapters of the books apart from quickly scanning the database chapter to answer one of the activity sheets. It was my favourite kind, the matching numbers and letters kind. We actually found a real word in our completed sheets today, and not just a made up noise of sorts. Then we invented a gamed called Chair Crash, which is exactly how it sounds, but would possibly get us exp...

However, on arrival, it seems she had announced to the class at large, with sympathy, that Deirdre was waiting for the bus.Haha, not likely - since when would I waste call credit on informing Susan of my movements?

Anyone who really knows me knows I have a strange, perhaps boggling, and extremely dramatic experience that led to my belief, perhaps still known as faith, in God. Ciaran, however doesn't know it. He knows only where I've come from in recent times - disagreements, bullying, anger and rows with likeminded church folk. Friendships repaired and peace resumed, then I walked away from them. I'm not angry anymore. I'm just untrusting that they would ever change. I don't want that kind of hardship so I...

After sleeping kind of badly, dreams that had me showing and telling everything that I knew I wanted to, or needed to, so well... waking up to feel saddened by the fact that it was only a dream, and these things still await me... and a dream about Marky and J being cute, which was rather nice to break the emotionally draining cycle of the other dreams-nightmares-dreams;Tonight I want to sleep some more. I probably wont be able.I just sent Ciaran home at eleven. I wish I didn't have to. He's warm...

Maybe I am tired. I can't tell. I know my mood swings are out of control. I also know I have little to no will power. A lifetime of playing victim to an illness that will power wouldn't and couldn't overcome has left me playing victim to my emotions and cravings instead of to my actual needs.It's too cold to do anything today, anyway.

Is it really only half past six? I would just about be falling around the kitchen making coffee if this was a normal morning. They don't seem to exist anymore.I have to study hard. I'm both stressed and disheartened at the mere idea. I feel like running away. I've never been so happy as I am in Loughlinstown, so why am I getting such claustrophobic feelings about going in today? Or any day, really. I'm so terrified of the end, and mourning it already with twenty-three days left... only twenty-th...

Judy's throwing up and I'm staying up all night. I hope it isn't catching. I don't want that on top of everything else. I gave her some Motillium about ten minutes ago.I have little choice really, but to stay up all night, in order to be awake in the morning. I don't know what is wrong with me. I'm stressed and depressed over nothing. People are probably right, it's probably SAD.Which doesn't bode well for me now, with my exam in less than two weeks; my course finishing in less than four, and my...

Do I eat the mini pizzas and potato croquettes in the freezer? They're Ciaran's, but I don't think Ciaran's coming over till I get better, so I will eat all his food. I don't want them. I don't want to go to the shop. I have to go though. I should buy food. Expensive stuff, food. Feck it, I better go to the shop.

Meme, for want of anything better. Thanks, lastremnant.The rules:1. Pick 10-20 films you loved/thoroughly enjoyed.2. Find screen captures (stills) for each film. If you can't find a still, pick a new movie.3. Post the pictures with the rules; let your readers guess from what movie each still is.4. NO GOOGLING! This includes using IMDB if you recognise an actor.

I want to go to bed, but Im not bothered. What is up with my emotions these days? My temper flares for no reason. I can't feel anything except hurt, anger and skepticism. I know things make me happy, and I know I love, I laugh, I like things like budgies... I hope and I feel secure (ish)... but why the over-riding moods?Go away.

I got an alarm call from Ciaran at about quarter to twelve, telling me to get up and watch the part of X Factor we missed last night when Sharon Osbourne threw water all over Louie Walsh. It wasn't worth getting up for, but I suppose getting out of bed has to be done. Now I've been awake, drank coffee, showered, went to the shop and delayed writing anything here. I've been itching to update since Friday, but I'm just not in a writing type humour. Haven't been for weeks I suppose.Harry Potter? Wa...

I'm going to see Harry Potter after lunch. Unfortunately I've been feeling too subdued to get in any way excited about this, but I still want to go see it, hysteria or not. Then Ciaran's coming over to my house, again, as he has done every night this week. I just can't get enough will power together to even read the three chapters (HomeSite, Frontpage and java script), the three I missed due to dossing/sleeping/Sudoku. Susan hasn't been in since Tuesday and it seems serious enough since they dra...

I am home, as of last night. I should have stayed and got a lift today with my mother, since I didn't go in today anyway. Sick. Blah. I should sleep tonight though, despite sleeping all day, cause I still feel a little bit yucky. I ate pheasant tonight, for the first time. I wont be going crazy trying to eat it again, though. Then I ate a half tub of Dairy Milk icecream. That I shall go crazy for, indeed.Doggies! Kitties! Horsies! My total interactment with Harvness was lots of nasty faces and t...

I think Susan's printing out handouts. We've told her that Claire's had to go home suffering from XML. We're all high risk at the moment. "Enrik" is bad. Bad bad Enrik. He never comes back after break, probably suffering from having been made sing film themesongs such as "I Will Always Love You" and "Everything I Do (I Do For You)". Ciaran walks in with a grin and a wave, slipping by Susan's excruciatingly evil stare, saved solely for "Enrik", and sometimes me if I wont give her a definite reas...

Lala, lalalala, la. Typical this. The furnace has a switch that gets tripped by air in the boiler and needs resetting, but I'm too afraid and unknowledgable to do it myself, so now I have to wait for the repairs guy to come and do it for me. So no heating yet. I really hope he's able to make it this evening. He's sick, he said :(Now I'm bored of waiting, waiting more, waiting all the time, now waiting for Ciaran to get the bus and go to Tesco for bread and walk over to my house. It's so cold! I ...

That's our proposed activity for the day. I don't waaaant to change my room! I like my room! But I have to pull the bed away from the radiator, therefore moving my bookshelves, and keep the bed away from the wall cause the wall gets so damp it's wet and dripping in the winter.

Regular olden-day hyper Friday yesterday :) I got full marks on my Friday test; I have been reading the book. I haven't been making notes, just reading the book, but it seems to be going in, somehow, regardless. Susan was handing out review questions, and saw my test paper sitting on top of my book, and said "Well done!" before turning around to Ciaran and trying to talk to him, but he was busy cracking up laughing and trying to shout something at me. Susan displayed some more of her exasperated...
