Verdict: It could go either way depending on the examiner. I highly doubt I got more than a pass, but I don't know how they mark it.
With regard to the title... I am continuing my string of illness coinciding with ANY practical music exam. Seriously. Wednesday morning I randomly started coughing during breakfast. Did the exam, went home to tell my mum about it, went to school (stinging my throat all the while as I cycled in the cold) and had choir, all the time thinking I had a tickle.
Next morning I'm feeling so lousy I can't go to school. I can't settle a temperature, my cough is worse, my voice is almost non-existent and I'm headachey. I spend most of the day sleeping/dozing, before waking up properly around 4, playing some games and watching Toy Story 3 with my family. Try to go to sleep that night... and I couldn't. Because I slept during the day. I may have had an hour's sleep. So Friday I go through more than 30 hours without really sleeping... Feeling marginally better, but still lousy. I do get some sleep that night.
This morning I woke up just feeling SO sh*te. My cough has turned into a hack, my nose is runny, I still can't find the right temperature, my voice is dead and... yeah. I feel awful.
Prayers are greatly appreciated, guys. I have my concert fortnight ahead of me, and I already had to cancel going to a workshop someone was virtually relying on me to go to. I need to get better.
The only advantage is that my family are doting on me a bit, and I get to snuggle up on the sofa and watch anime. As much as I love the sound of that, I'd rather be well and doing school work.
Also, it's snowing before Christmas in the south of England.
What. The. Heck?
Oh, and has anybody else ever used SharkRobot.com? I've had a few problems with the site, but it is being sorted out via private email.

If you comment on this journal, I'll go through your gallery and pick out my favourite three pieces with reasons, with the proviso that you'll try to do a similar feature sometime - it's a good way to make people look through each others' galleries, and spreading the love and art is always nice. I'm putting down 10 slots, but if I'm getting lots of feedback I'll add more. I will go through your galleries... in the next few weeks.
Slots 1 and 2 go to !chefhalfnote and ~DragonDreamer93 because they already did this and I commented on their journals.
Anything with a Muk promoting recycling has got to be good.
This guy's been practising his drawing, and it's coming through.
It's always nice to see people rewrite old material and improve on it.
A lovely face executed nicely in charcoal pencil.
Steel FlowersRan Fan fiddled with the hair ornament that she'd inherited from her grandmother. She liked it; it was pretty, but...
She pulled her hair from the practical knot at the back of her head and began to comb it out.
The high laughter of a woman broke through the quiet of the end of the day.
She sometimes wished -she wouldn't admit it, but she did- that she could just be a girl. She'd grown up among men, wearing pants, not caring about her appearance, preferring anonymity to attention. She had never had the chance to wear dresses or makeup, or worry about her hair. She'd never gossiped and giggled with friends about boys, but she'd been gossipe
Because LingFan fluff is fluffy and nice. It's well-written too.
An interesting style, nicely done.
