Mood: tired
Reading: G.R.R. Martin A Feast for Crows (Polish edition)/S. Clarke Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrel
Listening to: Zdob Si Zdub "Agromantica"

Recently A Feast for Crows was published in Poland… At last. But it's only a first half of the book (the second part is said to appear soon) – of course the splitting is only for money, I'm very disappointed of this manner of our publisher. And I hate the cover too, it's really awful. But the book is quite good, though different than the previous tomes. Lack of Tyrion and Dany is a little annoying but I liked Jaime's and Cersei's chapters very much… and I think Jon's absence is one of the greatest advantages of the book. :evillaugh:

Today I passed my last English exam – no more learning English! At all! Hooray! :) First part of the exam that was on Monday included listening, reading, grammar use and writing (some formal letter or review of a book – of course I wrote about AffC ;)). Today I had oral exam; I was completely terrified because I'm rather weak in speaking, so I was learning all night (with a door to my room covered with a black sheet that my family couldn't see the light ;))… but it was quite easy and I got a good note. I have still three another exams to pass so wish me luck!  ^_^

Having a lot of work with my exams I don't have much time to draw and submit some new pictures... but it will change after 10th June. :)

Oh the cover of Croatian edition was dissapointing too, there should be Cersei and Jamie infront Red Keep, but insteed of them we got pair of ice-sketers, with just terrible faces... oh well that was editors decision...

English wasn't so terrifying for me, but German was... we had such a unfair professor. I could know everything she asked me, and I would get an average grade, but some of her pets didn't have to know a thing and they would get an A. So I kind of lost interest. I'm sorry now, because I really didn't have to learn for the grade but for the knowledge...

Just look... [link] (click for the image to enlarge) I know that what's inside is truly important but I hate when cover is so terrible (and not even connected with the book)... :upset:

:D U pravu si stvarno nema veze s nicim, pogotovo ne onaj carobnjak sto stvara svjetlost... Vjeruj mi, u potpunosti razumijem koliko to moze zivcirati. Ja stalno okrecem svoju knjigu naopacke kad je prestanem citati, ne mogu smisliti naslovnicu...

Yay for both Feast for Crows being published in Poland and for your upcoming freedom from exams! I'm all done with my own exams by the 8th, and then I'll be home after graduation by the 18th, and there's just a million billion pictures from A Song of Ice and Fire that I can't wait to start.

I remember my oral exams for when I had to take French, they terrified me too. Speaking is the hardest thing when learning a new language for me. But I bet you're much better at English than most English speakers are at other languages, at least here in America.

Good luck on exams!

Thank you very much :hug:

Actually I have few ideas for AFfC pictures that I'd like to draw and simply don't have enough time... But just after exams I'm coming back to work! :)
