Answer for question 4468.

If you could take a two-week vacation right now without having to worry about the details of making it work (money, vacation time, etc all taken care of), where would you go? Who would you bring with you, if anyone, and who would you want to make sure you went without?
I would want to go to several countries. Canada, but not Quebec, US, Ireland ... Maybe a motorcycle roadtrip with friends (provided we have our licence, which will be soon for me anyway).
I'd make sure I go without people I don't like ^^ simple as that

Answer for question 4438.

Do you tend to swear a lot? If so, what curse word(s) do you use the most? If you're not someone that swears a lot, do you substitute words like "shoot" or "fudge" instead?
I tend to, if I'm angry ^^.
Sometimes, I use the "polite words" instead of insults.
As I'm French, the most popular curse words are "putain", "merde" (the ones I use the most), but there are lots and lots other ones.

Answer for question 4392.

Have you ever cheated on someone you were in a relationship with? Similarly, have you been cheated on and if so, what did you do about it? Could you ever trust someone again if they cheated on you?
I have been raised to respect other people, so cheat on them isn't an option. And, my parent divorced because my father couldn't keep it in his pants when in the company of what is my step mother today (I may have some adjectives to describe her but none of them are G rated.). I had been in one relationship and even though it was a long disance one, I never cheated on him. I don't know if I can say the same about him, but I honestly don't care. If he did and I was still with him? Dump him, plain and simple.

I have strong trust issues with men in general, and women too , except of course my best friend, I trust him with my life.

I have not been with someone since we broke with my ex, one, because of these trust issues, and second, because I don't think it's the most important thing. But if I discovered I was cheated on, my trust issues would be even more powerful ^^

Answer for question 4378.

Who is your favorite movie/TV/cartoon character of all time? Why? What is the special significance of that character to you?
I love a lot of movie/tv/cartoon characters. Some of my favourites are Hiccup from How to Train your Dragon, Sena from Eyeshield 21...But my absolute favourite of all time? Inuyasha! Why? I don't really know. Maybe the fact that even though he is not accepted because of his differences, he finally found a place to belong, where he is fully accepted.
It's hard to say, but even in real life, you get frowned upon when you are "different", meaning "not in the stupid norms society dictates". you are gay? Some homophobic ass ***** will mock you, or worse. Your skin color is different? The same. Religious beliefs? The same .... You are sick? Have a special disease that makes you different? The same. We are all humans beings damnit, it's about time we accept this!
So to me Inuyasha is a "victim" of ignorance. So it has a somewhat special meaning to me.

First part done!

From monday to today, I had the first part of my finals.

- Maths. Everyone in our class, even the best ones, couldn't find the answer to ONE question. We are still looking for the answer ...
- Economy and Managment (my wrist is still hurting ><)

- English (with all the Apple stuff we had in class I was surprised that there was nothing on the subject!)
- French (My wrist may be hurting because of that too oo)

The most important subject ... computing. We have a situation, and all our exam is based on this situation. The subject was "update a web application and software to manage the trash in a city". So we have to suggest solutions to improve an already existing project, code some method of the app (all of this is on paper, we do nothing on the computer), improve a database by organizing, adding, removing information from the existing database ... make some method in the website code ... whooo.

To us it was "how can we organize when people have to get their trashcans out so we can empty them"

I don't think I really messed up, but I'm paranoïd about forgetting something...

So I'm done with these finals, now I have to study for the other ones ... ugh

TOEIC - Amazing introduction of the American way OO

In my studies, English is really important. Programming is in English all the time, so it's better to have some basics.

We have English classes that teach us English expressions and words for everything touching technology. Great, really.

And, our school also offer us the opportunity to make our level in English official, by introducing the TOEIC.

It's only given to students who are working to get a diploma like mine.

And we had some training sessions. And then, we saw the answer sheet.
We were all amazed by the system. In France we don't use, or really rarely this system. If we take a test, we are used to write ... a lot.
Here, it's a monstruous sheet of paper where we have to color the answer we want. Ok no problem about that, but when we saw the paper just for our name, we were really amazed... We had to write our name in letters, and then darken the letters of our name in a list. No, we are not used to this at all XD.

We've been told later that it's because our papers are read by a machine afterwards, which explains, but when you see this the first time it's strange.

In France, we use this system only if we are taking some specific exams. The last time I used it, it was for an exam in "the basics" of computing (aka "what is a mouse" or "how do I do to save a word document" ...). Yep, we are in deeper computing stuff, but we have to take this exam ... wtf.

Anyway, the TOEIC is on Monday if I'm not mistaken, we'll see how it goes ...

It's very important because in French, there are a lot of problems with English. Very few people speak English. Young know the videogames English "yes no you lost try again", and older people... er .....

Now, if you have an official proof of your level in English, it can make the difference when you are looking for a job. I take the test because my school organize this.
My school is actually what you can call an high school. But in France, after high school, you can either enter university, some specific schools, or stay in HS to study for a specific diploma. We are still in High school, but we have the status of student, which gives us more rights.
You spend two years studying for a specific thing, and afterwards, your diploma has more weight than someone that did the same thing in university, because in university, you study the theory, and you have to train yourself, and even after three years, you'll still have less experience than someone in High school because you have not any internship, and we have two.

Afterward we can continue studying, or stop to look for a job because we are seen as ready to find a job.
I personnally will take another year afterwards, and then I'll stop. I'm fed up with school, and this diploma is not recognized outside of France, and I don't know if I want to stay there ... better be safe than sorry.

Answer for question 4248.

What are your thoughts on vaccinations? Do you personally believe they play any role in the development of autism or other chronic diseases? What diseases would you like to see a vaccine manufactured against over your lifetime?
I personnaly think vaccination can save lives. However, I don't really think it plays any role in autism. I am no scientist, I know some vaccination can complacate the functionning of the body, but to this point? I don't think so. Don't think an autist child is an idiot. My cousin is, and not only is he a very intelligent being, but he is aware of his situation. Never, ever make fun of them, really, you can hurt them much,much more than you think.

Oh great dilemna

I'll admit that I have NEVER been a fan of Apple products. Especially now. The ONLY thig I accept is the Ipod , but even then, I find it is a pain just to put music on it.

My uncle is a half Apple addict (half because even though everything he owns is Apple, he's not running into a store to buy the latest gadget). He and I are somewhat in a playful war between PC/Mac and IOS/Android.

But, as I am studying computing sciences, especially development of programs. During my two internships I have been lucky enough to work on ANYTHING but Mac, but I'm afraid that one day I'll be in a company that worships it ...

I tried installing a program on a friend's macBook (and it only took like 30 minutes because they can't do anything like everyone), and I admit using it is so horrible that I hesitate to ask m uncle to use his ... for a while to get used to it.

Dilemna, dilemna ....
