Jane's Diary: October / November 2012... Studying, Concerts and Amsterdam

Good evening girlies!
 My calander was packed with some 'big' events in November, and I had a lot of catching up to do on my blog after all of them! Soooooo I decided to start a new series called 'Jane's Diary'.
Every 'Jane's Diary' post will come once every two months month and is basically a long post (!) about some things that happened during that month. Plus, I will be putting up a different quote on it every month from Pinterest, like the one below!
Enjoy xx

31st October

My Halloween costume was simple. I was a cowgirl, and luckily I didn't have to buy anything new. I had a cowgirl hat that I bought on a holiday in the USA a few years ago. It was in North Fork Ranch in Colorado and was a holiday to remember!
My cowboy boots were my Mum's. She said there were the trend back then, when she was my age. I think they're pretty cool, but they a bit old and worn out. They had a little heel on them and I felt really tall!

I went trick or treating with my friends (never too old!), which was great. We ate our sweets in my house while watching Hocus Pocus, and we did some apple bobbing!

My Costume!

November 1st - 4th

Ugh, had to get up early the next morning...
because I went to Amsterdam with my family!
Wow it was beautiful. We went to the Anne Frank Huis, which was very sad but interesting. It touched me more since I read her diary recently, and it was hard to believe that it was the real building Anne hid in with her family. 

Anne had a few notebooks, not just one.
Anne's actual room! The pictures that she put on her wall are still there
As well as that, we went to the Van Gogh museum, on a boat tour and shopping!

There were lots of canals in the city

My photography skills :)

I went with my two friends, sister and mum and it was so much fun! It was amazing! Here are some photos of the concert:

AAAGGHHH! Not Exams!

Unluckily, most secondary schools in Ireland have to face the annoying examinations near to Christmas time, which sucks! This year was my first year of 'real' exams, and I had to do 13 tests for 13 subjects, all in one week! From the 3rd to the 7th of December, I faced my exams, and I thought I did well. And don't worry, I wasn't too stressed. The Junior and Leaving Certs are waaaay more important than first year exams, my my parents told me. Big thanks to KISS magHow-To-Study and Dainty Sprinkles for some great advice!
I got some of my results this week and I'm very happy with most of them. :)
In my school, there are extra subjects that I'm doing this year and in second year I have to pick two to do for my Junior Cert. There is Art Craft and Design, Spanish, Business, Home Economics, Music, Technical Graphics. My favourites are Spanish and Business. I don't think I'll pick T.G (short for Technical Graphics) or Art as I didn't do very well in those. Home Ec is OK; the theory is difficult, but I love the cooking! I'm good at Music, but I don't think I need to do it as a subject, since I already play piano (I just did my exam for Grade 2 in piano too).
What do you think I should pick next year? I won't choose by your opinions, I would like to know what subjects you did/do so comment down below!

I hope you liked this month's diary, my next one will be in January!
Stay tuned for some festive posts!
