After worrying about them for a week, my first two Bac exams are over!! I am much relieved. The first one was ....... TABLE TENNIS! Suprising isn't it!? I wonder if there are other A level exams in which sport take that much importance in other countries. I had to buy a ping pong racket two days before the test. So you know how unfamiliar I am with playing table tennis!!
The exam was horrible, while many of the candidates got tired very quickly comparing to me who seemed to have better physical conditions! However, my skills were....... so bad. I didnt win ANY match, and as a dancer, probably played the game with bizarre moves and turned out feet. I kept a joyful mood, making fun of myself! I think I will have very bad results, but I had great fun!
Then, the next morning, I had gymnastics! I arrived, got changed in black shorts and T-shirt like I usually do in ballet class. The others seem shocked! Well, I thought that's how we should dress up for gymnastics! Then, I remarked that all the others wore nornal street clothes, non elastic pants, normal top, some of them didnt even put off their glasses! "Oh, it should be easy for me." I told myself, relieved.
Time for the warm up. The teachers asked us to run and to move every joint. What? I would never get warmed up just by running 2 minutes! I need at least a full barre work! Then I realised that normal people probably would get sufficiently warm after slow running. No! I was going to hurt myself, I needed some stretchings. I did my splits, others went wow.... The teachers recognised the ballet dancer in me when they saw me running like a crab with pointed feet and turned out knees and asked me to demonstrate some of the most difficult moves. When it was the real test, I hurt slightly my hip, not warmed up enough. Again I had great fun! And I think I deserve at least a pass this time!
Next exams, Mandarin which I am not very good at, and Dance. Of course Maths which I have been working on day and night!!
