Realised I don't particularly want a girlfriend. Why do I say this? I now have the perfect chance to have a girlfriend (long story short, there is a girl who likes me quite a lot and her friends and my friends are trying to get us together), and I'd rather not have one. Not that I don't like the girl in question, she seems really nice (despite being even more awkward than I am) but I'll explain-
When I say that I don't want a girlfriend, I do still want a girlfriend. I know a girl who is perfect and she blows my mind whenever I speak to her. Problem is, she lives halfway across Europe, so I don't really know how she feels, or even me to be honest. Since we have plans to meet (relatively soon, whether at easter or summer we're not sure yet), then I don't know what will happen by the time and what will happen then, so I'm trying to be single for then for if she does actually like me.
Probably sound really pathetic and stuff, also considering loads of other blogs about other girls, but whatever. I'd like to think I've grown up a bit recently, but in reality I probably haven't.
WOO FOR (slightly) HORMONAL BLOGS WOO. (updated)
update: She's now told her herself that she really likes me. It's quite awkward. I've said I need to think about how I feel. I don't want to hurt her feelings (I probably have already by not knowing what to say, I'm pathetic) but I know if I went out with her I just couldn't like her as much as the other girl. Surely that's worse.
I really don't know what to do. One of my friends who could help me won't be home until tomorrow so I can't speak to them. This is a real mess.
I go to town a lot now, which is odd because I also seem to do a lot less than I used to. Then again, I don't, because I used to play Runescape all day, and then I stopped and did nothing all day. Now I do nothing all day, except on Saturday when I do nothing for the vast majority of the day.
Well anyway, last night nobody could be bothered talking to me and I couldn't be bothered doing anything so I spent my whole night watching rugby and listening to music. I've made a spotify account and I really like it already. If I run out of hours for the free version this month, I'll probably subscribe to it. :P If I had a decent phone that could have spotify on it I would do it soon anyway :P
But yeah, I woke up with a message on Facebook so I read it and found out I'd been invited to town at 3pm. That meant that I would actually do something (shock horror). So I carried on listening to music until then and doing not much. Then I decided to go at around 2:30pm because I was bored and I'd only be 10 minutes earlier. The people who invited me were already there, so I spoke to them and we went to find somewhere to sit. Then other people came who I've never met but they all seemed really nice. I didn't really know what to do, so I just joined in with conversation when I could think of something funny to say. All the people I'd never met except one went off to get some drinks and I was running around with someone else who'd arrived who I know quite well from school. Then I went over and one of the people who'd invited me and the other person I didn't know were talking about hooking someone up with someone. About an hour and a half later when everyone was going I realised who it was. They were trying to hook me up with someone. I realised because as the group of people I hardly know (but now know a little better) went off and then one of them ran back to my friend and they both giggled. Then as I said I was about to go, she told me that one of the people wanted to go out with me or something.
Considering the fact I'd:
-Sat in a bush
-Read graffiti in a posh accent
-Shouted 'rawr' in a place in the town park which amplifies noise
-Generally been a bit boring
means I think it's a little unlikely.
I've finally got something important off my back. And it means that I can meet the most awesome person I've ever met, in real life. We'll need to arrange it, but 2011 is looking good, as I'd assume it'll happen this year.
It's also my birthday, but I'm not too bothered by that. I'm really happy that so many of my friends have wished me happy birthday already, though. Two of them stayed up until midnight just to do it :P I'm now 16, and while it doesn't change anything, I'm edging closer to freedom which is another thing I'm happy about.
Before you all think I've lost my mind with insanity, I'll end this, but I'd first like to wish Holl a happy 17th, since he's the only other person in the birthday section I know. Have a good one :D :P
Ill. Tired. Blah.
It's annoying how it all seems to happen on one day. I'll probably end up going in tomorrow, but I'd rather have a lie in and then get on with my English for Friday. Oh well, at least at the weekend it's my birthday and I'll have a decent day with friends.
I'm still feeling fairly upbeat though. Went to hospital about my pupils being different sizes, and they told me they're different sizes... nice. That's not entirely fair, they did tell me nothing's wrong, but whatever. I didn't even want to go, so I wasted a whole afternoon. I even had my favourite lesson in school in the time I missed.
Then we had dominoes pizza and it was really nice. My brother was ill (I've probably gotten it off him D:) so he left some pieces which I had for breakfast. Woo.
Pizza for breakfast is awesome.
It's been a challenging week so far.... A lot of my friends are really down so there's not been many people to have a light hearted conversation with, and trying to cheer them up is quite hard too. I'm used to a few friends being down but not the majority of them. Meanwhile I've been having a fairly good time speaking to the girl I mentioned a few blogs ago. Shame she lives in a different country really. As a little background we've been in contact for almost 2 years, but it basically slipped by mind to tell my parents about her and now I've realised I ought to and don't know where to start. A few days ago she mentioned something about meeting up and I thought that was a good idea. Since then she's actually got permission to do it so I've pretty much got to get permission to meet her from my parents, but they don't know who on earth she is. I'm basically on the drawing board for the plan at the moment, it's mostly thinking about wording because I know what I need to say.
Anyway, I felt a bit like crap on Sunday due to tiredness and not talking to anyone, but I'm alright now. I dunno about anyone else though. I can't really do anything due to being a bit hopeless, so I'm thinking about stuff. It's really boring.
Today has been brilliant. I woke up at like 10am and stayed in bed thinking about stuff from last night, and like 45 minutes later showered and got dressed and went to town. Met my friends, went to tesco, got biscuits, went home with my friends, filmed some stuff for school (I have to edit the sound though, I keep swearing in the background D:), played Call of Duty with them (seriously, it was so funny, playing CoD with two non cod players while taking the piss out of it endlessly is hilarious). Then we went to a play park and filmed me jumping over things.
When I got back I remembered I was playing 5-a-side football with my Dad and his friends so I had to get changed and go. So I did. I went and I had a good time
Yeaaaaaaaah. Now I'm back home making raisin/current puns on my friend's status about some people who are 'dating'. YAY FOR CRAP HUMOUR.
So, I suppose that it's a good idea to look back on the year, since other people are doing it and it might be interesting to think about what I've been doing in the past year. Drivel begins now:
January obviously saw the start of 2010, and I was on a bit of a downer going into the new year. 2009 wasn't the best year, for reasons that are obvious if you've been unfortunate enough to read my blog posts before I deleted them all and started again, and I still reference them sometimes. Well, with the new year and the new decade, I was determined that 2009 was a building block and not a stumbling block, and I'd build on it to make 2010 all that much sweeter. I was working hard in school anyway so I carried that on, and I was getting some fairly good grades too. My birthday coincided with the end of the month, and while I didn't feel much more mature just in that instance, it felt like a little bit had been lifted from my back, because even though numbers technically mean nothing, I was 14 during a year that wasn't all that good, and I wanted to change that, so yeah.
February was just 28 days, really. Nothing of note happened. I revised for a test I had in March, and felt alone for a little bit when it was Valentine's Day, and half my friends were doing stuff with their girlfriends or boyfriends.
March was another weight off my back, because I had a few exams, and I excelled in them. It was also the month I was getting ready to go to Thailand, and I was also told that I was going to go to China, as I'd sent a slip saying I'd be interested way back in January. I began taking lessons in basic mandarin, but I still only really know Hello, Thanks, and Goodbye.
Right at the beginning of April was the end of term and I went off to Thailand for the holiday of a lifetime in my opinion. I spent a few days in Bangkok, exploring the city, before I had the rest of the two weeks relaxing in tropical paradises. I actually bumped into a friend I met on holiday in 2008, twice. It was nice to see her again, and we talked a little bit about the last few years which was pretty cool. At the end, when I was due to fly home, the Icelandic Volcano debacle happened, and it affected me, leaving me stranded in Bangkok for a week. Eventually I got home and it was a real relief to see my friends again.
May, well, nothing happened in May. I had the main bulk of my exams, and not much else happened.
In June, there was the world cup and like usual I was fixated on the football, so much didn't particularly happen. There was also the small matter of it being a year since that crappy incident happened, which I was dreading, but it turned out to be fine really, and I was fine. I didn't see that coming, but wow...
July began with a rubbishy first week. All my friends were on work experience and I was left at school due to my own laziness in not finding a placement. I was mostly left to brood on my own or run errands for teachers, and I resented it, and I was a bit annoyed at myself for the whole thing. Then was my trip to China, with a load of friends, and I had the time of my life. It wasn't quite as good as Thailand in making me go 'wow', but I enjoyed every moment, and I felt so free being without parents for two weeks. All I had was my friends, my German teacher, one of my old science teachers, and a couple of people from the partner school in China. I would love to go back, to Hong Kong especially.
August was the summer and nothing much happened, other than meeting friends countless times, which was brilliant. I was also told I might be moving 300 miles away, which has slowly been wrenching away at me since, because I don't like the idea much, but it seems kind've exciting in a way too.
September began with spraining my ankle and I forced a slight reoccurance a little bit after when playing football on it, which was stupid on my part again. It was my first proper injury, ever in fact. That was really odd. I began to develop a little crush on a girl in a load of my classes, but I rode it out and it was alright.
October, and that commenced a lot of thinking and also my new project, ScrumGames, which was supposed to be a daily blog, but I've taken days out here and there since starting it.
November was a decent month, not much happened other than some not too nice stuff with another female (ya, rejected :D) but I didn't really care.
December, and well, I've put up with a lot of stress towards the middle of the month, but Christmas and since has been wonderful.
Hope you all had a good 2010 too, and have a cracking 2011.
I didn't say I was going but I went. I went over Christmas to the Lake District and it was cracking. Involved in it was a load of fun and my third ever white christmas (snow was underfoot anyway and there was some light snowfall on the day itself).
It wasn't too eventful, but due to the snow most of the walks we had planned to do were written off which was fine by me. We still did a few ones, but just not big ones, so much so that my biggest achievement was finding Medal of Honour Limited Edition (with Frontline :() for £20 in Asda.
I can't be bothered writing a complex blog post, about the events of today, so maybe tomorrow.
Hope you all had a great christmas :D
It's now snowing. Yeah.
There's quite a lot of it, actually. And I'm going to town, and will play football, because it's obviously the best day to do those things :D.
Will be hilariously fun. And yesterday's song looks hilariously prophetic.
Thursday. Meh, it was okay. Double humanities was looking through exam questions and then watching Ace Ventura and not really enjoying it. Physics was getting really competitive when as a class we played charades, there were 2 teams and the teacher gave one person a word, and the team that got it quickest won. We lost 25-26 >.<.
And then we had media which was normal work for the first lesson and did a few quizzes the second lesson. So all in all a fairly good day.
It would have been better if I could concentrate, but I'm far too tired.
Oh, and I'm becoming more and more convinced Ellen doesn't hate me by the day. I was pretty sure, but in cida from the quiz she won a small Quality Street thing, and it was the only one she didn't like, coconut I think, so she gave it to me :D. And whenever someone didn't like the coconuts ones (most of the time, somehow), she told them to give it to me, but I didn't accept most of them because I was feeling a bit ill.
Now I must write an essay about 'A Christmas Carol', and it'll take a few hours. I feel really tired and ill and there are thousands of things I'd prefer to be doing, but I best get on with it.
Mocks over. Wooooo.
I've totally screwed myself over on the Physics paper, but otherwise, I'm very confident. Good job Conor. Now just for two days, and then you can sleep for two weeks >.<.
I never thought it would happen but I'm actually looking forward to going walking for a few days. I absolutely hate walking usually :P.
Other than that, not much is new. I've had a psychotic smile on every day of this week, because even though the days have been crap, I've been talking to someone who just makes me smile a lot. It's fun :D.
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh and I need to write an essay but I can't be bothered. I'll do some later.
I'm absolutely freezing. I forgot my keys, and so did both my brothers, so we were sitting there for an hour and a half waiting for my Mum to arrive. That hour and a half was mostly my brother insulting both me and my other brother for forgetting our keys, which was hilarious.
Today was absolute crap though. We had two exams, reading and listening, both in German, and it helps to be able to hear the tape when you're doing listening.... I did quite well though I think, because I adjusted fairly quickly. It was just on another level of difficulty. Also we had a LESSON of German, where me and my friend talked about what we did last night, and he decided to call the person I was talking to my girlfriend >.<. It wouldn't be embarrassing if he didn't bellow everything he said, and if nobody in the class knew who on earth that person was. My own stupid fault :D.
The other lessons I had were Maths (we had a music quiz for the end of term slacking lesson, which I did surprisingly well in, scoring 37/40, not quite as good as last year's 39/40, but fair enough as I'd not listened to the radio frequently this year :P), and P.E, where I played badminton and enjoyed myself.
I found out some fairly bad news last night, so I've been grumpy from the outset so I just feel like I want this week to end. I usually do, but meh.
This week is mock exam week for year 11 at my school, and since I'm year 11 and go to my school, I've sat some mocks. I did English and Humanities today, and I have two German exams tomorrow, two science and history on Wednesday. Then I'm done in terms of exams for 2011 and hopefully can do some quizzes or something, because they don't burn me out as much as mocks ^_^.
But yeah, they went fairly well. I got confused at one question in my humanities paper when it asked about the consumer society in 50s America. "What can you tell from this source" *picture of a fridge*... well.... uh... I don't know. I made up something about fridges being affordable and people being rich enough to stock them fully, as the fridge had a lot of stuff in it.
That question did lead towards me and my friend deciding to make our own GCSE syllabus in 'Pimping', with questions such as "You see a girl on the side of the road. Describe what you would to her in graphic detail (8 marks). (for extra marks, quote Cannibal Corpse).", "For full marks in this paper, admit you do inappropriate things with your nan (0 marks)", and last of all "France. Discuss". We want to submit them to the exam boards but we think that to be honest nobody would want to mark the paper, so we'll make the exam board ourselves.
Other than that, it's been uneventful, apart from me being asked to read a whole notepad of quotes in various accents by a friend and that taking up the whole of Chemistry.
Today has been odd. I've done nothing for the second Sunday running, but that's not why it's odd.
Let me explain. I was in a very sarcastic mood this afternoon after talking to my friend and being sarcastic with each other the whole time. So, when I saw someone who usually I can joke with posting a terrible sick joke on Facebook, I decided to put 'ew' as a comment. Now, usually if she thinks I'm being immature, she will then double team with her boyfriend and they will tell me how I don't have a sense of humour at all. True in the comments I make because they're crap on purpose, but I find myself funny at least. Anyway, this time it was slightly prolonged with me writing things like '^_^' and 'lul' while they derided me for things, just because I thought it'd be funny.
Then that girl who I talk to a bit at school decided to start talking about a time I jokingly insulted her in a Science lesson or something. Now, I don't remember the lesson all that well, but I asked the person she claimed was sitting with us, and she was having a go at me when I decided to call her fat. I don't even remember why I said it, and it was pretty stupid in the circumstances that she had an eating disorder, but I make mistakes sometimes. But when those mistakes happen around 2 months ago though, and she's never raised the issue since, you tend to forget them. Therefore what she was doing was effectively trying to guilt trip me. Congratulations, it didn't work, because you'd been telling me about how I was a rubbish person, and now you're playing the small person. Great job! Anyway, I decided to say that I don't try to insult people for the sake of insulting people, and I was sorry for any offence caused, and then she ranted on about how I'm an attention seeker or something like that. Again, well done, you've identified that someone you've known for 5 years is an attention seeker. I'm trying not to be one, but I like trying to make people smile, which is part of the reason I'm viewed as immature. Because outwardly I am, even on here or whatever.
Rather hilariously, she's blocked me. Meh, stuff her. She's always causing problems where there's no need to bother.
Oh, and today has been fairly good otherwise. Talked with a few friends, chilled, played Fallout, written a little bit. All in all a good day, if a little boring.
*click for funneh conversation*
Friend: "What's Noel"
Me: "I think you mean, 'Who's Noel', Stephen"
Friend: "He's over there"
Me: "He's bloody everywhere.... look, he's on this bauble. Plus my neighbours have 'Noel' written in the window, I wonder why they want him".
In hindsight, not a very funny conversation, but when I was with my friend it was hilarious.
So, today I woke up, played a bit of Fallout: New Vegas, exploring the Mojave, getting owned by Deathclaws, and doing quests. Then my friend rang me and asked me if I wanted to go to town, so I said yeah and got given my money by my Dad. I got there bang on time to meet him but waited like 20 minutes and he wasn't there, so I walked off. I bought two Christmas presents, because I needed to, and then walked around town for a bit and SAW MY FRIEND. It was a little bit odd, I didn't expect him. He usually forgets he's meeting me. So, we talked for a while, eating jelly beans, doughnuts, drinking coke and then I bought another present.
All in all I've done nothing today. He caught a bus home and I walked because I'd spent £30 and didn't feel like spending more of my money. I got home, tidied up (really it was putting things back where they belong, because my Mum cleaned everything, which was surprising really. She asked me to clean it up next weekend in the morning, so I said okay, and then she was like meh screw it, I'll clean up if you lend me your iPod while I'm cleaning). So I did.
My Dad has been taking up the floor in the kitchen (we had tiles, but the grouting didn't stay down properly after like four times of grouting and it was looking really messy), and now he's laying down some wooden floor which looks like tiles. That means I've not been able to go in the kitchen, and as a result, I've been a bit hungry and thirsty. But I stocked up in town :(.
Tomorrow... revision beckons. GAH.
omg st00f lol
I've decided that I mustn't have been too bothered about the girl I asked out last month, because I've not felt sad since. In fact, things are just like they used to be - namely, me making a bit of a prick of myself and making everyone laugh.
Oh, and Ellen's lightened up to me, finally. I've thought that it's been happening gradually since I've been making everyone laugh daily, including her, but given that she now addresses me properly, it's the first time in nearly 18 months. Wow, it's been a while. Yesterday she was talking to me about some TV program while I was walking to assembly with her and two of my friends. Maybe she isn't friends but at least we're civil now, so yeah.
Plus recently I've been really surprised with my talent for German and how I'm constantly holding conversation with my 'pen pal', who's now one of my best friends. She is one of the funniest people I've ever spoken to. I am lucky. :(
Two good bits of news today.
One I shall keep private but I've had a smile on my face since 3pm because of it.
One is the announcement about Uncharted 3.
The bad... well, that's the fact that Uni fees are going up, but even that's not been able to dampen my spirits. I love life.
We had sixth form open day, and even for how enjoyable it was, I still have questions. Mostly towards myself. Biology vs Maths being the main one.
We chose five lessons to be talked to about for 30 minutes each, and in order I chose Biology, Maths, English Language, History and German. Since I'd be doing four A-levels, one of them needs to be dropped.
Biology was really good fun. A lot of my friends wanted to do it too (we enjoy biology so we all went together) and we dissected a pig's trotter, and played with it's tendon a bit. My personal highlight was standing in front of everyone saying 'This little piggy went to market' and then yanking the tendon :P. If I'm honest I'm not sure if I'll do it, but I really want to and the teacher who'd take us is really knowledgeable and friendly.
Maths was an absolute drag. We did some fairly simple equations to get us started and our teacher then recited a lot of things we've been told before. Great. I was on the verge of falling asleep when I realised it was time to go to English Language. I mean, honestly, I have to choose between this and Biology, and from today which am I likely to pick? ....
English language, well, I didn't expect much but I enjoy writing so I felt like I should. There was a small group of us in there (five in our lesson, but in the previous lesson apparently 11 had been in there, but around 7 of them have no chance of even getting the amount of Cs needed to get in, let alone Bs to do English), and we were analysing some text and were told the structure of the A level. My friend went there just to see what it was like and didn't expect to do it but is pretty certain he's going to do that now, so if I do it (which I am 95% sure I will), it'll be quite fun.
We had a short break and I was feeling really light headed so I went outside for fresh air and took in a lot of water and felt much better in History. I've heard a lot of rather bad things about the teacher and his odd ways (apparently if you yawn three times in a term he makes you get chocolate hobnobs, and he kept referring to his circle of trust), but he was actually really funny and clever. We talked as a class about interesting areas of history, and how it's good for university and stuff. So it wasn't the most fun lesson overall but I knew I wanted to do history anyway.
The final sixth form lesson was German, where we were just talked to about the content of the AS and A2 courses. There were three people interested and at the end one of them said they didn't want to do it, and I'm the only person dead set on doing it - the other of the three wants to, but was thinking about psychology instead. So there's a chance it might not run, but apparently they usually only have three/four people doing it anyway.
Then we had two normal lessons (Humanities and Maths). In Humanities we revised the Cold War, and then in Maths we revised Surds as 2/3s of the class were either at the other school in the Sixth Form centre or revising for a German exam (our teacher let them off because he's fairly nice :P). However we hardly did surds, and mostly talked randomly as a class.
I had a fairly good day so now I just have to decide between maths and biology. Oh, and get ready to apply for things.
Mocks next week :P
I slept through the whole morning, somehow, and woke up at 11:30am, so I quickly ate breakfast, showered, got changed, did teeth and sat and did nothing for a few hours.
I'm still doing nothing. I love days like this.
Friday, it never fails to be fairly good.
It was non school uniform today, and even though they're no different to other days, they always seem more fun. I feel more natural in my normal clothes, and teachers don't spend 10 minutes asking other students to remove their scarves. Well, today started rather well. We have a student teacher and in tutor me and my friend were singing stuff by mrweebl and he joined in, making him officially the most awesome adult to have ever entered our school.
German was fairly good, we talked as a class about the top members of staff all being intrusive love-childs who only live to meet government targets (wow, we're so deep), and then all the foundation tier kids for the tests did a listening test which pissed me off because I couldn't think when I was translating some advanced text which my teacher gave to me because she knew I wouldn't be able to do, but somehow I did it - correctly as well.
Biology lessons seem to be a formula for awesome. Half the lesson had our teacher trying to get some things printed, so she was out of the room and we were a bunch of kids unsupervised... I don't think she was impressed when she came in and I was humping a chair, but we live and learn
The next two lessons were relatively boring, and then English was fun (including a 20 second re-enactment of A Christmas Carol). I walked home, thought about stuff, and ya.
Catch phrase of the day. I don't know why.
Today started with a bang: Namely our Biology student teacher saying 'What will Kate Middleton and Prince William's children look like?'. We're doing genetics, so it makes sense, but I was still like 'woah'. Nice topical skills you have there. We got given pictures of what a random generator thought, and I drew a massive cigar, a moustache, a bowler hat and a monocle because I am pr0 matures - then I called him Castro the Posh Baby. Then we watched a video which was absolute filth - well, it was fine, we were learning about Mendel's research into pea genetics. Quotes ahoy:
1. "Are you castrating that pea?" "Absolutely"
2. "Look, it's sex in peas!"
Meaning I spent 30 minutes of my life watching pea porn.
Then there was Physics which again started with a bang: Namely our Physics teacher saying 'Remove all your outdoor clothing'. I whispered to my friend next to me 'I consider all my clothing as outdoor clothing', to which she keeled over and fell off her stool laughing. Apparently the rest of my table had heard because some of them were giggling, but my teacher hadn't as she said I was being mature . We planned for our ISA experiment. Woo.
Break was meh. History began with a bang: Namely, we had a supply teacher, so we spent all of our time talking about an email I received from my penpal trying to decipher what it actually meant (something about a party on a ship or something), rather than something about Tudor law. English was pretty awesome, we were reading a book by Charles Dickens (Charlie Dick), a very festive one named a Christmas Carol. It began with a bang: Namely, someone next to me threatening to stab me with their JLS scarf if I refused to draw a 'Deathly Hallows' sign on me. My school is full of saddos, including me. Therefore I drew it on my kneecap, and began to talk in an annoying voice for the whole lesson, eventually driving everyone mad by saying 'Scroogy' instead of 'Scrooge', and claiming that Jacob Marley was actually a place in Africa (turns out it's actually Mali).
Then we had chemistry and I sat there discussing my mascot, Tim the Turkey, who helped me explain the Haber Process to my shocked teacher (Whether she was shocked that I'd managed to pull a zombified turkey out of a bag or that I knew the Haber Process I don't know).
Today was even better. What the?!?!?
Physics was meh (other than being shouted at by someone for talking about loudly about octopuses, which was quite hypocritical as they'd been talking loudly about nothing in general), Biology was meh (my friend got moved for doing work, I didn't understand). However for the last 15 minutes me and some friends were allowed into a computer room on our own, so we just went on hotmail and talked to each other on messenger :).
P.E was awesome, I'm doing badminton (badmanting) and it's such a good sport ;) English was okay, I thought it'd be crap as we were writing essays but I found it really easy and finished with 30 minutes to spare. Maths was okay too, I actually did work for once and realised I actually understood quadratic equations all along.
Oh, and I was supposed to be going the cinema with my friends but my Mum forgot to give me my money for the train and the cinema tickets, so I can't go. They're going, and said we'll arrange something again in a few weeks (don't know what is out though - we were going to see Harry Potter but everyone will have already seen it, including me. I was just told 'You're going' so I said 'Ok').
