Tuesday, 17th of April 2012, ~11 AM: I have finished my last exam of the entire exam week (course 4 of religion). I'm semi-satisfied with the exam itself and feeling rather well. I eat at the school cafeteria and head out to buy myself a pair of new sun glasses. It's raining. I stop by the beach to see some nice scenery and buy some groceries for myself and the family.
Tuesday, 17th of April 2012, ~12 AM: I've walked home and am attempting to relax after the pressure of the exams is over. At the back of my head I carry the intention to make my guitar purchase as soon as I'm ready for it. I count the money on my bank account and in my wallet to be sure of how much money I'll have after the purchase.
Tuesday, 17th of April 2012, ~3 PM: After contemplating whether or not I should also buy an amp, a cable, some strings and a stand for my guitar, I go for all the aforementioned except for the amp and confirm my order. I get an e-mail saying the order has arrived and is being processed. I'm beginning to feel really comfortable and happy, albeit less wealthy.
Tuesday 17th of April 2012, ~4 PM: The most unexpected thing happens. I grab my cell phone and notice an SMS saying me and my fellow class mates have made it to the Puruvesi Pop, a local festival that takes place on the 3rd and 4th of August. I'm shocked and thrilled, adrenaline flows and I start telling EVERYBODY about the news. I'm also hit with stress and fear, which gradually start to grow in my subconscious, later entering my consciousness.
Tuesday, 17th of April 2012, ~5 PM: I make the decision to change the decoration of my room just a little bit shelf-wise to make it more clean, have some more room for my rapidly growing CD collection (16 new CDs this year so far) as well as space for the brand new guitar. I spend the rest of my evening cleaning and re-arranging.
Wednesday, 18th of April 2012, ~3 PM: I've arrived home after the first day of the brand new school schedule. I've received all my exams back, and although some of the grades I already knew, most of them I didn't and thus it was a good surprise for the most part. The grades I got were a 9- for the 5th course in maths and the 4th course in religion, a 9 for the 3rd course in religion and a 10- for the 3rd course in society studies. But what makes it all practically fall apart is an old Finnish essay I made two months ago - only 35/60 points, which is not even close to being acceptable for someone who's supposed to become a journalist.
Wednesday, 18th of April 2012, ~4 PM: I'm cheered up again as I listen to my copy of Aion by CMX that I got through mail while finishing up the new arrangement for my room. Just as the CD ends, I receive the last bits of my Record Shop X order - a gift I'll give to a friend and Diamond Eyes by the Deftones, completing my Deftones collection that now includes ALL SIX of their studio records.
