A Thumbs Down for TMA 06!

I had my 06 results back - and they were my worst ones yet! That'll teach me to try and be clever! lol
I had to use Ninian Smart's 7-point system to test something to see if it could be classed as a religion - and I decided to be tongue-in-cheek, and use Bingo as an example! (After all, I know many people who treat it as if it were their personal religion! lol)
I did well on this, marks-wise, but I didn't allow myself enough words to explain what could be used instead of the Smart points system - we had to do it in 1500 words - and this is what let me down! I always was too gabby with words!
What I am keeping in mind, is that I still passed comfortably and, with A103, the mantra among us students is 'A Pass Is A Pass Is A Pass!' lol
On a different note, I spent 3 days in the Millenium Stadeum in Cardiff, on the last weekend of June. It was our annual Convention for Jehovah's Witnesses, titled 'Deliverance at Hand!' and we had a fantastic time - 3 days of spiritual food from the Bible, with 39 new brothers and sisters Baptised, and a great Drama on Sunday afternoon to top it off! (Note to self: I must try and find out how they managed to stage the splitting of the altar!)
It was the first Convention I've been to since becoming a Witness and, for someone who finds a village too busy for me at times, I had expected to be very nervous but, with 10,400 Witnesses sat all around me, I felt absolutely fantastic!
The atmosphere was absolutely amazing and, with the roof closed due to a malfunction, which kept us lovely and cool as the weather was scorching hot, the sound of 10,000-odd people singing was brilliant! (And not a swear-word sounded!)
It certainly beat football anthems, I can tell you! lol
Well, I had better get on with my reading for TMA 07 - I'm studying Pygmalion, Medea, Don Juan and Wide Sargasso Sea at the moment (well, I'm actually writing this - I'm supposed to be studying! lol)
This is what's commonly called 'TMA avoidance' - Bye for now - talk to you again! lol
