Hey! Lol.
I don't know why I'm posting this, but I feel like I have to because I'm really proud
of myself.

On Friday I went to see my english teacher about an assignent we where given while I
was absent from school. It was a really important assignment because it goes towards
my exam results next year. After my teacher briefly told me what I had to do, I went
home and sat down in my bedroom.

"Pick a subject/place/people you're inspired by, and give a presentation about

It didn't take me that ong to think about what I was going to do. I chose my
favourite band - Depeche Mode. Not due to a strange obsession or anything like that.
I guess in a way they are special to me. I've listened to them for years and they
remind me of my friends, family and childhood. Thier lyrics mean alot to me aswell.

So I sat down at 5:00pm and pulled out my note pad, my mum's ipod, my Depeche Mode
biography and my pencil case. And I sat at my desk, turned on my computer and began
working. I couldn't write everything down about them, there was way too much. So I
just chose things that where an important event or important affect involving Depeche
Mode. I wrote 3 whole A4 pages (my writing is smallish.) Then, I thought it wasn't

Everyone else was going to do a slide show + a speech about thier chosen subject, I
just wrote a speech. I wanted more, so then I went to my mum for help. She let me
borrow 2 tour programmes from when she went to see them live in concert, a few images
she had and she let me print out lyrics.

I decided it still wasn't enough, I really wanted a good grade for this project. So I
pushed myself further and decided to put a selection of early and modern Depeche Mode
songs onto my Ipod shuffle, then I used Windows Media Maker to mix up videos and
images of Depeche Mode. 

Last night I was awake until 1:00am finishing off my speech. I was so ashamed when I
was presenting it, because one of them songs "Home" means alot to me. I feel like I
can relate to the lyrics and the line "finally I've found that I belong here"
reminds me of my home, and why I belong here, and that I should keep going even when
everything has gone wrong. And I played that song and I felt myself starting to cry,
but I held it in and got over it quickly.

I decided to post the video on Youtube, it's not the original, but it's clips of
videos I used. It kinda sucks because I rushed it, but I was so excited about showing
people some of the things I used.

I'd really appreciate it if yoo watched the video because it means alot. Even if yoo
don't like it ^,^
Yoo never know yoo could end up liking DM too =]

Lol, I got the highest grade I could get which was an A*
Lol, if I was in the class level above me, the highest mark would have been an AA*
I'm so happy =]
And proud of myself ^,^
